Creating a Calendar view that only shows weekdays.

I've been trialling SP2010 for a little while now, and it looks great. In developing an Intranet, I would like to create a couple of custom views. A weekly calendar view that shows THIS week, in a day-by day format, that only shows monday to friday, with a 1-2 line summary of every entry A way to show on the same page, or link to NEXT week, that shows a similar view We currently have an old/manual Intranet setup that displays the current week + next week, on the same front page, so that Staff can see, at a glance, everything happening in the 2 week period (which is as much information as they want!) Being able to eliminate Weekend from the view is the most important bit, as it enables a bit more room on the screen, and since it's a school, nothing is ever on the weekend anyway! I found a few bits of js code, that are meant to work with WSS2007, but I couldn't get them to work in 2010 (I'm guessing quite a lot has changed) Thanks, Rohan

Creating a Custom View for a Custom List


I have been thrown in head first to MOSS 2007 and am trying to learn it as fast as possible. Here is what I got:

A custom list that is populated from an external database by a timer job every minute. There is also another job that clears items in that list that are over an hour old.

What I want to do is, create a view/web part that essentially shows a gridview with certain columns from the list. Also need a column that is calculated on the fly, and is not in the list (basically create a hyperlink to another site based on a column in the list).

I also need 2 buttons or something next to each row that will allow me to manipulate that row. And I need that list to autorefresh every few seconds to reflect changes in the list.

What would be the best method to do that?

Error Creating Controls in design view



Some days ago my designer started to show "Error creating control - [controlname] Value cannot be null. Parameter name: parseText" instead of all of my server side controls in all of my web projects - including both framework 2.0 and 4.0 projects. I tried many tips I found on the net, including restarting VS, cleaning the temporary asp.net folders and even I reinstalled the whole VS pack, but I still get the same error.

This occures in both VS 2010 and Microsoft Expression Web 4.

Any help appreciated.



MVC2: Change the default generated HTML when creating a strongly typed view


Is there any way to change the HTML that is generated by default when you create a strongly typed view in MVC2?

I currently get a structure like this:

            <div class="editor-label">
                <%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.category_id) %>
            <div class="editor-field">
                <%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.category_id) %>
                <%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.category_id) %>

I want to change it to a structure like this:

                <div><%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.user_login) %></div>
                <div><%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.user_login) %></div>
                <div><%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.user_login) %></div>

Truly Understanding View State

GridView Parent Child View with JQuery Effects

I was just checked how to add some more cool effects to the GridView control using JQuery. In this post I will display parent-child data in the GridView control with some help of the wonderful JQuery library.

Let's first populate the GridView control.

Creating your SharePoint Governance Plan

One of the most common questions that I get from prospects as I'm talking to them about the creation of a governance plan and process is what does it look like. In other words, there are materials available which describe what should be in a governance plan but there isn't a ton of guidance on what the process of creating a governance plan and process are.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Creating an AJAX Repeater in ASP.NET MVC

The "TaskList" is a tried an true example of the most basic thing that you can do in any framework. Unfortunately, I had some problems finding a really good example of all the steps necessary to get a task list to work in ASP.NET MVC 1.0.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.
