Some names in people lookup are not available when in datasheet view

  

I am trying to do some list updating (new items) while in datasheet view. I have some names (from our AD) that are not showing up in the droplist of names while in this datasheet view.  The names do show up if I go to standard view and create a new item there.  Any ideas what may be causing this? This is problematic because I'm actually trying to move this data in from an access database and I have about 275 records that won't go in because the names are in the list.


There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what you're are trying to accomplish.

Datasheet view lookup column issue

  

When a column that has a lookup is empty in datasheet view and I attempt to update a different column I get this message: the text entered for isn't an item from the list. select an item from the list, or enter text that matches one of the listed items.

I found this hotfix, but it did not apply.

Any ideas how to get this resolved?

WSS and MOSS Datasheet view people and groups bug or limitation

  
I need help trying to work around a limitation with the datasheet view with a list in sharepoint WSS and MOSS.  I need to figure out how to fix the people and group lookup fields so it will not corrupt my data. Currently  the data filters for this type of group does not work.  I have listed the steps below on how to recreate my issue:1. Create a sharepoint group called DELETEMETEST  > add a user to that group2. Create a new list3. Create a column in the list called DELETEMEPEOPLE > Select people only > Choose From DELETEMETEST Group4. Finish creating the list5. Create item in the list    * Notice that if you search for users in DELETEMEPEOPLE it will only show the users assigned to the group.6. Finish creating the record.Back at the listActions > Edit in DatasheetNotice that the DELETEMEPEOPLE now no longer has any filters, and you can add people outside of the DELETEMETEST Group.What are the possible solutions to working around this issue?1. Setting a bit flag on the SPField - Didn't see one that only worked for the datasheet.    2. You could make a custom field type of people and groups and that would make it read only in the datasheet, but isn't that a lot of work for something that is already created?Thanks for any advice....Ivan

InfoPath 2010, People Picker Control - problem with sharepoint group targeting

  

Hello!

I have developed InfoPath 2010 web form with People Picker Control. I want to set sharepoint group which would be used in People Picker Control to search people. Ok, I set sharpoint site url and aftet that - select sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group' I need. Everything works fine - I can select only people inside sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'.

Now I deploy my solutions (wsp package) on different site collection and sharepoint server installations. In this case People Picker Control can't find right sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'. Sometimes People Picker Control select another group, not that I have select in InfoPath Designer and sometimes People Picker Control select all users.

What's wrong with it and can I configure People Picker Control to select sharepoint group?

Issue with People and Groups type of column in datasheet view of shrepoint list.

  
Hi,

We have a list created in MOSS 2007 which has a column of type people and groups. When we open the list in datasheet view and try to add records for people and groups type of column the column shows only records from All People section of the site collection. I have verified this for another site collection within the same web application where I am able to see all the users though they are not in the All people section of site collection.
Could anyone please let me know if I am missing any setting or if there is any change required to see all the user names in the people and groups type of column in datasheet view.

Thanks ,
Deepak

Problem to group radio button across gridview rows

  
In general no one can easily group or make a single selection from radio button list inside gridview rows. There are a lot of way to make a single or unique selection from list. Here i want to share how i can address this problem in the most easiest way. Googling the problem most of the cases i saw the grouping in horizontal way. Thats why i tried to group the radio buttons in vertical manner. Let i have a requirement like below:

ASP.NET Grid View Paging and GridDataRowBound Problem -

  

Hi,

I have a problem displaying data in a Grid View control when I set a row to visible = false when a certain condition is true.

For example, if a DataRowData value has a condition set to true (custom in table) I set the visible property to false, so the data row will not be visible at run time.

The problem is that I'm using paging (10 rows per page) and if 8 of those rows fall into the true condition that won't show the row, that grid view page will only show two rows of data in page 1. The worst scenario is that if I go to page 2 of the grid view and all the rows (10) fall into the true condition, that grid view page will not show any data at all.

How can I show 10 rows of data at all times in a gridview? In other words, I would like to just show the visible rows at all times.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Eduardo.


Razor View Engine and Add Namespace in Web.Config Problem

  

Hello,

I am working on a MVC project with Razor view engine and I have the following:

  @MvcHtmlString.Create(
    Bundle.Css()
      .Add("~/Styles/FlyOnDreams.FlyOnPages.Base.css.less")
      .Add("~/Styles/FlyOnDreams.FlyOnPages.Core.css.less")
      .Render("~/Styles/FlyOnDreams.FlyOnPages.Core.min.css"))


This only works if I have on the same view the following:

  @using SquishIt.Framework;

However, on my Web.Config I have the following:

    <pages>

      <!-- Namespaces -->
      <namespaces>
        <add namespace="System"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Routing"/>
        <add namespace="Microsoft.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="SquishIt.Framework"/>
      </namespaces>

    </pages>


So if "SquishIt.Framework" namespace is added on Web.Config why do I need to have the @using on the view?

Sharepoint 2007 View Problem

  
I have a document library in Sharepoint 2007 in which I have seet up a number of different views so that the users who work with the information in that library can filter down to the specific area that they work with.  The view itself works great, and they are able to see their data quite easily.  The problem comes when they actually go in and edit any of the items.  Unlike most software in the civilized world for the past 30 years, the user is not returned to the view that they were working with, but to the defult view.  This means that any task where they are required to do many edits at a time becomes a frustrating nightmare and waste of time.  Is there any setting I can change, or anything else at all that I can do to give my users a little relief by making the site navigation such that they are returned after an edit to the same view that they were in before the edit?  Ideally, it would be nice if the same scroll position within the view were returned as well, but I suspect that I may be asking for too much by pushing that issue.  HELP! HELP!  Any and all constructive assistance is appreciated.

What is the best way to create user account for big group of people?

  

I need to create individual account for a big group of people (around 200) from an Excel spreadsheet. What is the best practice? It will take too much time to create account using web form. I think there must be a way to do it. Please advice. I tried to use Stored procedures created by ASP.NET. NOT SURE whether it is a good idea.

Thanks
