SharePoint 2010 Refinement Panel - Show more link issue

Hi,  I have deployed a Refinement Panel on my search result page. And I have modified the Filter Category Definition to get some Managed Metadata columns. Below are the xml changes: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <FilterCategories>   <Category    Title="Category"    Description="Managed metadata of the documents"    Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.TaxonomyFilterGenerator"    MetadataThreshold="3"    NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="3"    MaxNumberOfFilters="20"    ShowMoreLink="True"    MappedProperty="ows_MetadataFacetInfo"    MoreLinkText="show more"    LessLinkText="show fewer" />   <Category    Title="Modified Date"    Description="When the item was last updated"    Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.ManagedPropertyFilterGenerator"    MetadataThreshold="5"    NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="6"    MaxNumberOfFilters="0"    SortBy="Custom"    ShowMoreLink="

Refinement Panel Customization with Managed Property

Hi, I've customized the refinement panel with a Managed Property I've created myself. The refinement panel takes into account this managed property and disply it well. However, if this Managed Property is multi-valued, then each entry in the refinement panel does not split the multi valued column into different values and display a single value like : Enter Choice #1;Enter Choice #2;Enter Choice #3; and of course in that case the refinement does not work. I did the same thing in MOSS 2007 with the codeplex faceted search web part release 2.5 and it was working fine. Upgrading to release 3.0 however seems to produce the same issue as in SharePoint 2010. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hervé

Customizing the refinement panel - ContentSource/SiteName



I'm trying to add a category based on the "ContentSource" property but this does not seem to work. To test this I copied the following line:

<Category  Title="Site"  Description="Which site this document is from"  Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.ManagedPropertyFilterGenerator"  MetadataThreshold

Sharepoint 2010 FAST Template Web Parts Documentation (refinement panel)

I am trying to create a prototype for a sharepoint 2010 site for my team and I am working with the FAST Template (out of the box). I am implementing the "Search" Web parts that Include: Refinement Panel, Related Queries, Search Action Links but all of them ask for a refinement schema. I am looking for documentation on this on the MSDN site and I cannot find nothing that really is helping me out. For example, this is the Refinement Panel Caption property for the "Refinement Panel" web part:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <Category    Title="Result Type"    Description="The file extension of the item"    Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.ManagedPropertyFilterGenerator"    MetadataThreshold="5"    NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="4"    MaxNumberOfFilters="0"    SortBy="Frequency"    SortDirection="Descending"    SortByForMoreFilters="Name"    SortDirectionForMoreFilters="Ascending"     ShowMoreLink="True"    MappedProperty="FileExtension"    MoreLinkText="show more"    LessLinkText="show fewer">
    <CustomFilters MappingType="ValueMapping" DataType="String" ValueReference="Absol

Sharepoint Designer 2010 Corrupting Refinement Panel


I wonder if anyone has seen this...

Using Sharepoint Designer 2010, try to customize the refinement panel in a search results page to show a managed property.

a. with an existing or new refinement panel added to the results page, right click and modify the webpart's "Filter Category Definition" [In my case I simply changed the title of the first category]

b. uncheck the 'use default configuration'

c. Save the page and call it up in a browser.

The refinement panel shows a garbage string of 1000 characters.

The above works OK if the page is edited via a browser, but not using Sharepoint Designer 2010.

Anyone seen this?

Thank you!

Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

SOAP Toolkit 2.0: New Definition Languages Expose Your COM Objects to SOAP Clients


In SOAP Toolkit 2.0, the Services Description Language (SDL) has been replaced with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and the Web Services Meta Language (WSML). WSDL and WSML files describe the interfaces to a service and expose COM objects to SOAP clients. This article describes a custom tool, IDL2SDL, which takes an IDL file and produces WSDL and WSML files without waiting for a DLL or TLB file to be generated. Also shown is a customized development environment in which WSDL and WSML files automatically reflect the changes to IDL files.

Dynamic Checkboxlist exception when adding to Panel when using Master Page


In essence, I am creating Dynamic Checkboxlist controls and adding them to a Panel.  It works well when I do not have a Master Page configure to this webpage. Once I have a masterpage congifured..

Treeview problems in Update panel



I tried using this code, on a Treeview inside an update panel, which is populated dynamically in code behind. 

However, it doesnt give me the required functionality.

Following is my aspx code for the TreeView and the TreeView populating logic:


<div id="treelist">
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1&quo

Accordion Control with Panel...Add an Update Panel?


I have an accordion control in my web site.  And in one of the panels, I have a drop down list box where, when the user selects an item, it updates the labels right below the ddlistbox.  I have it so that it maintains the scroll position when the ddlistbox has an autopostback, but it's very obvious that the whole page posts back.

My question is, can I/should I just enclose the ddlistbox and the labels (and a couple of text boxes) in an AJAX update panel?  I already have a ToolScriptManager (because of the accordion control), so I don't need to have another script manager, right?  I can just put the update panel (with the other controls inside of it) right in the accordion panel, right?  Then when the ddlistbox posts back it won't have the delay of the whole page posting back?  And it'll still execute the event handler for the listbox selection change?

Does this sound right?  I'm just looking to make the post back "invisible", and I would like to do a partial postback of just these few controls.

Thanks in advance! :)
