Web Part Custom Property Text Values Showing Up on Page


I've created a basic Web Part in a .wsp and defined two custom web properties.

However, whatever value I place in these text values when in the edit mode show up on the Page beneath the Web Part name.  Why?  How do I not show the value of Properties outside of the Modify Property window?

Creating custom property on derived Page

I am attempting to accomplish the following during the creation of a Page derived from DerivedPage: <local:DerivedPage xmlns="..." xmlns:x="..." xmlns:local="..." MyProperty="My Value" Title="My Title"> ... </local:DerivedPage> You'll notice an extra property MyProperty in there. The code-behind is like this: class DerivedPage : Page { public string MyProperty { get; set; } ... } When I execute this, I get a null reference in InitializeComponent() when I create a Page derived from DerivedPage. I also tried making MyProperty a dependency property.  But I get the same results. How can I create a property for my new base-class that's set in the markup of my derived class. Thanks, ...Matt

How to Make a custom property or a page persist across postback



As the title suggests, I have an object to hold some specific state information in my web application - I pass it back & forward between pages by making it a property of a basepage which works fine, but I lose it on postback.

Is there any way to persist this property without manually adding & reading it again from viewstate?

How to automatically enable web part connections when creating a publishing page based on a custom p


I have created a simple custom page layout in SharePoint Designer, added a couple of web part zones, and a custom web part on each zone.

These web parts have a custom provider-consumer set of interfaces. I configured the connection between the web parts in SharePoint Designer (using Add Connection wizard), and saved the page layout.

After that, I checked in the layout and approved it in SP's web interface.

Finally, I created a Publishing Page based on my layout, but the connection between the web parts was not set. I can set the connection manually and it works fine, but I would like the connection to be automatically set on each page I create based on the layout.

Is this the expected behavior? If so, is there a way to configure the connection automatically either programmatically or declaratively?

Is there a step I'm missing?

Customize content query web part in custom page layout


I am trying to build a custom page layout which should have the following web parts:

1. Announcements,

2. Doc Library

3. custom list items

And the data in these web parts should be from the site in which we create this page. For example, if we try to create a page in site A, then the announcements displayed should be from site-A, doc lib that is in site-A...

And I am trying to insert a content query web part in the page layout using sharepoint designer, and modify the query to insert the announcements list in the site. But how can I query to pull the data from corresponding site.

Thanks for the help.

Custom Server Control Property not maintaining state


I have created a server control consisting of a TextArea and a div under it.  My goal is to create my own asp:TextArea type control.  the div is for a Character count of the text area and seems to work ok but i added a CharacterCountVisible property to the control that is always returning true.  See Proptery definition below


<Bindable(False), Category("Appearance"), DefaultValue("True"), Localizable(True)> Property CharacterCountVisible() As Boolean
        Return _CountBoxVisible
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
        _CountBoxVisible = value
    End Set
End Property

Note the _CountBoxVisible variable is define inside the class as :

Dim _CountBoxVisible as Boolean = True

What I am trying to do is give the user/coder the option to show/utilize the char count feature.  Can make it disappear with textarea1.CharacterCountVisible = False but setting it to true will not make it display.


What am i missing





Windows XP: Escape from DLL Hell with Custom Debugging and Instrumentation Tools and Utilities, Part


Building on his article published in the June issue, which demonstrated several ways to get process and DLL-related information from APIs such as PSAPI, NTDLL, and TOOLHELP32, the author presents some unusual ways to get system-oriented info that you can easily integrate in your own toolkit. There are three tools included as samples: LoadLibrarySpy, which monitors an application and detects which DLLs are really loaded; WindowDump, which retrieves the content and a detailed description of any window; and FileUsage, which redirects console-mode applications to tell you which process is using any opened file.

Change part of a page without full postback


I have a page with two columns. Initially, the left column will contain a list of links that are article titles. Clicking on one of the links will display the text of the article in the right column, keeping the list of titles in the left column. Clicking on another title will clear the text of the first article and display the second. Is there a way to accomplish this without having to repaint the whole page? I would rather not have the whole page resent each time a title is clicked, but rather have the page stay as is and only the contents of the right column get cleared and redisplayed. I assume there's a way to do this with JavaScript, but I don't know how and would appreciate some help. Thanks!

how to add a wiki page as a web part


Hi All,

I have created a feature that generates a page and adds a content editor web part, links web part (using elements.xml). Everything works fine but I would like to replace content editor web part with a wiki page that I am going to create.

For example, I copied an excerpt from elements.xml file that adds a content editor web part for the page.

<Module Path="Dependencies/Pages" Url="">
  <File Url="default.aspx" Type="Ghostable">
   <!-- Add the Rich Content Text Editor web part -->
   <AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="Right" WebPartOrder="1">
          <WebPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2" xmlns:iwp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ContentEditor">
            <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>
            <Title>Executive Summary</Title>

 Can someone tell me how I can add a wiki page using manifest (elements.xml) file or some other way?
