pageviewer webpart to render and display external sites in different resolution ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi there,

I am looking for a webpart that has similar functionality like the pageviewer webpart, but that can render external websites and even downscale/downsize them to be completely visible in smaller sizes (e.g. in a webpart zone of a webpage).

Does anyone know any good 3rd party webpart or something opensource?

SSRS 2005 external images won't display - images on DIFFERENT file server

Hi, Been having trouble getting external images to display in reports rendered on SSRS 2005. Images are displayed as a red X. However, my scenario is different from some of the examples I have read about. - The images are stored on a file server that is DIFFERENT from the box on which the Report Service is running. For various business reasons I cannot copy the images locally to the Report Service box. I am using "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" to retrieve the images. - Since the file server does not have IIS installed, I cannot access the images using the URL method (http:// access). I need to use the file:// method. Currently I am prototyping this setup on my test box, which is running XP Pro and IIS 5.1. The Report Service is installed on this same box. I am currently testing this through the Report Manager web site (http://servername/Reports). The images are displayed using the Image control, which I added to the report using the visual report designer in Visual Studio 2005. It is set up with source=External and with "file://fileserver/path/to/image.jpg" path values. File names are retrieved from our database and file paths are built dynamically using a data processing extension I have written. My best guess as to why this is happening is that the ASPNET service account on my test box does not have access to the particular share on the file serve

Databound Hyperlinks in ListView. Need to open external sites


Good Evening,

This site is ASP.NET 4.0 connected to a SQL 2005 backend.  The database has a table that, among other things, lists the names and URIs of external sites for reference purposes.  A webform has a ListView control bound to an ObjectDataSource that pulls the data from this table.  The ItemTemplate and the AlternatingItemTemplate have been edited so that they contain this HyperLink:

                            Text="Route Map" 
                            NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("Maplink") %>' />

The page renders the data normally but the HyperLinks aren't working as intended.  For example, the datatable record might contain
But when the HyperLink is created in the ListView, it comes out as:
which, of course, fails.

How can I set up the HyperLink to route to the external site and ignore the local domain path?

Thanks for any suggestions. 


How to Authenticate User on External Site Using IFrame (Dynamically created in SharePoint WebPart)



I've a situation,

- External Site : This site has its own user store (user/password) to log-in to.

- SharePoint WebPart : This webpart will get some readonly data from External Site but for performing any CURD operation on the External Site the user has to Log-in to External Site using IFrame Mechanism (This login form has to be of External site, and UserName/Passwordd should be posted to login-form of External site) sharepoint shouldn't be collecting any user/password credentials. (how can we do this?)

How user gets authenticated in External Site:

1. user Provides username/password.

2. Once authenticated to User Store it set an Authentication Cookie in use browser, thus uses this cookie with every request to perform any CURD operation.

I've to have the similar functionality in SharePoint Webpart. using IFRAME.

Hope i covered all the points in my explaination, if you can provide any blog/code which is dealing with similar kind of approach.

Display rating control in xslt list view webpart without table header



In the same code, pasted above if I want to display rating control using xslt list view webpart what I need to write.

I have created few xslt list view webparts for my site but I am not able to display rating control using xslt. I am writing something like this

<xsl:apply-templates select="$Fields[@Name='AverageRating']" mode="PrintField">
              <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
              <xsl:with-param name="Position" select="$Position"/>

But for this I think i need to include some parameter or any particular template. Using the above type of code in xslt this is not working. I do not want to display table header row. Please guide me on this.


How to display/calculate total of a custom column in dataview webpart's grouping header



I've created a dataview from a MOSS2007 form library. In the dataview, I've enabled grouping by a specific column and also was able to show the total (sum) of couple of columns like this, in the group heading:

<xsl:value-of select=”sum($nodeset/@Total_x0020_Cost)” />

So far, it's working fine. I've added couple more columns to this dataview. There's a piece of javascript code that is executed for each row. These 2 columns gets their value from this javascript. Now, is there anyway, I can get the total/sum of these columns in the group heading.

Have you done something like this? Please advise.




Display error when inserting table in Content Editor Webpart


I've got a MOSS 2007. I want to insert a table into the Content Editor Webpart using the Rich Text Editor. I am choosing "Insert Table" and the new window occurs. But I can't do anything.

The buttons in the format section are not enabled.

There are a lot of display errors. (I wanted to upload an image but I don't know where...) The display errors are pictures with the name "TRANS.GIF" lying in the images folder of the 12Hive. There are several of these images maybe to align the context.

To summarize:

  • I can't use the "Format"
  • There are disply errors (images) in the dialog
Can anybody help me?
