Creating Hotspots in images error in Sharepoint Desinger

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

So we just installed and are testing out Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and we have come across an error when inserting an image into a page and then editing that page with Sharepoint Designer 2010 and trying to create a hotspot on the image and try to save the page we the following error:

Content in the embedded form field may be changed by the server to remove unsafe content. Do you want to reload your page to see the results of the save?

So if you click no, nothing happens but if you click yes it will save the page but will clear the hotspot. And this is a fresh and clean install of 2010 on a 2008 R2 x64 server.

Hope you can help. thanks in advance.

Error creating Read Item or Read List operation in Sharepoint Designer 2010

In terms of high-level requirements, I need to pull in lists from a couple of different web apps.  To do this, I’m using SPD 2010 to create an External Content Type for the list of interest.  I’m able to create a SOAP Service or WCF Service connection just fine.  However, when I try to create the external content type and create a Read Item Operation on one of the GetList or any other Get* (or other Update methods for that matter) methods, I get the following error:"The method that your operation is based on has parameters with complex types that do not have default parameterless constructor.  This kind of data source methods cannot be used in Business Data Catalog."I tried defining an operation on the “AddAttachment” method, and that worked just fine.  I also tried providing default values to the listName and viewName parameters when creating the SOAP Service connection, but still get the error.  Same issue with a WCF Service connection as well. Does anyone know if this is a 2010 issue, or am I approaching this requirement incorrectly?  What are other approaches for connecting to lists that reside in a different web app than yours?

sharepoint designer 2010 error when creating a new template


Hi all, I'll provide a little background detail in the hope that maybe I'm approaching the task the wrong way or my  method is better done via other ways?

I work in a education establishement, we already have our branding on the 2003 version and having recently seen some of the impressive work done in 2007 so wanted to implement branding on the new 2010 version.

Through using one of the basic sharepoint services 2010 templates I wanted to try a little basic re-branding to start off with and see how simplified the process would be, I already have Designer 2010 installed.

A test subsite was created under the 2010 'root' area and opened up in designer 2010. I could immediately see the main areas containing any logo and other branding features was greyed out so effectively editing of master pages was disabled. This was overcome by a little research and finding out I had to enable editing of master pages / templates through the site admin area. I was immediately given access to all master pages (default.master, starter.master and v4.master - which I understand 4v is actually the 'main' master page used?

Here is where the problems begin.....I'm using designer 2010 but each time I create a page based on a master template layout, designer provides the error message 'Sharepoint Designer:

SharePoint Desinger is throwing error when trying to create a workflow in a site



Lately may be from only couple of days we are experiencing this issue. When we are trying to create a workflow on any SharePoint Site, or when I try to open an previously created workflow in SP designer, it is throwing me this error:

'The Server could not complete your request. Contact your Internet Service Provider or Web Server Administrator to make sure that the server has FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Services installed'.

I was able to open or create workflows without any issue before and also there were no major changes done on that server lately.Please help me in fixing this.


Error when creating a Workflow in SharePoint 2010


Hello All,


Just wantd to get some help with this problem.  I was trying to create an Out of the Box Signatures Workflow in my test SharePoint 2010 environment but I get the following error:


The following location is not accessible, because it is in a different site collection: http://<servername>/_catalogs/wfpub/Collect%20Signatures%20-%20SharePoint%202010/Signatures_1033.xsn.

Some more info, I did change my server's name just before I tried this.  I did reboot the server and ran the stsadm command -renameserver to force the name change on the server.  I then also did an IIS reset.  Everytime I try to do an IISReset, the first time always comes with:

SharePoint Desinger 2010 approval workflow error



I created a copy of the out-of-the-box globally reusable workflow titled, "Approval - SharePoint 2010."

I then modified the "Initiation Form Parameters" in the workflow copy that I created. By default, the "Show on Form" settting for these parameters - Approvers, Expand Groups, Request, Due Date for all Tasks, Duration per Task, Duration Units, CC is set to "Both" (i.e. show these parameters during Initiation and Association). I did not want to display these parameters during Initiation, as we don't want end-users to change these settings. I want them to be displayed during Association only. We want Administrators only to be able to configure these parameters.

So I changed the "Show on Form" setting for the above parameters to "Association (attaching to a list)." I am able to save the workflow. And when I click on "Check for Errors" no errors are reported. But when I attempt to publish the workflow, I get the following error:

Errors were found when compiling the workflow. The workflow files were saved but cannot be run. And when I click on the "Advanced" button in the error message, I see this detailed error:

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 SharePoint items with CreateItemActivity

Instead of creating new list items from code in your workflow you can use CreateItemActivity. CreateItemActivity can be used for creating list items or files. Properties of interest for this activity are the following (most of them are self-explanatory):

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).
