Moving file in event handler

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint



I'm trying to move the filein ItemCheckingIn event.. Move succeeds but then client displays an error:


The URL 'Test/asdf.doc' is invalid.  It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web.


As a solution, I tried moving file in ItemCheckedIn event, but then client browser renders before the event finishes, so sometimes client browser displays outdated list data (with old item). 


I need to move a file (actually  I'm trying to rename file with extention - with ListItem["title"] we can't change extention) transparently to the user.


Possible solutions (that I can think of) :

1. Find a way to modify redirect url in ItemCheckingIn event (should be possible, but I don't know how)

2. Delay response until ItemCheckingIn event completes (don't think its possible)

3. Refresh client browser when ItemCheckedIn event (don't think its possible)



I spent so much time on this still could not find a workaroud.  

Any ideas will be appreciated!

Event not raised while parsing xml file



In Visual Studio 2010 ASP.NET 4.0

I want to write a procedure to validate a xml file with a xsd. I found some examples on the web but the one i chose does not work as attended. The example uses XmlReader with a XmlReaderSettings and a ValidationEventHandler.

Here is the code

Protected Sub VerifyDes(ByVal filename As String)

        Dim xslDes As XmlReaderSettings = New XmlReaderSettings()
        xslDes.Schemas.Add("", "http://www.mysite.com/xsd/ValidData.xml")
        xslDes.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema
        xslDes.ValidationFlags = XmlSchemaValidationFlags.ReportValidationWarnings

        AddHandler xslDes.ValidationEventHandler, AddressOf xslDesValidationEventHandler

        Dim des As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(filename, xslDes)

        While (des.Read())

        End While

    End Sub

    Protected Sub xslDesValidationEventHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ValidationEventArgs)

        'some code here
    End Sub

I tested this procedure with a xml file which was well formed but contained some elements which were not conform to the xsd.

No event or error occured. It said the file was valid.

Then i tested with a badly formed file. A XmlException was raised but nothing happened with the ValidationEventHandler.

It seems lik

Creating Event Handler in Code behind


Hi, so I have a control that is created in the code behind and generates fine but I can't figure out how to create an event handler for it.  I've found plenty of examples for it in C sharp, but none of them seem to apply to VB.  What I want to do is essentially this:

myDropDownList.SelectedIndexChanged = "Event to do here"

but it doesn't seem to work for me.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

want to launch modal Popup from created User Event handler




I have a create user wizard on my page and in the event handler (Created User) I get extra information from the user

via textboxes within the aspx etc.


I then do a response.redirect to another page.

What I want to happen is this


When the CreatedUser Event is fired, I  want a Modal Popup to show up with a message Processing your registration.

once the registration code is processed it will close and the users get redirected.


On my ASPX I have the Modal PopUp and a Panel.

In the code behind in the handler I put ModalPop.show()


but this does not work.


thanks for any suggestions



file upload in Create User Wizard Created User event with UpdatePanel Tag wont work?



In my Create User Wizard1 Created User Wizard Event, I am collecting extra information from text boxes and allowing

the user to uplad a file.



I have put the Submit button within an Update Panel Tag but since I have done this it does not work.

Is there a way round it. In this situation would you use a trigger.?


<br />

  <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel2" runat="server">

  <asp:Button ID="StepNextButton" runat="server"  CommandName="MoveNext"  align="middle"
                                            Text="Submit my Profile" />

InfoPath Workflow Task Form "Loading" event handler only being called after App Pool recycled.


I have a Workflow that is using an InfoPath task form.  In the "FormEvents_Loading" method event handler I have some code that needs to run each time the form is opened.   I recycle the App Pool and open the form the code runs perfectly, but if I close and try to re-open the form the code is not run at all.  I can then recycle the App Pool again and on the next load the code executes just fine.   The code that is supposed to be run is a very simple statement to set a field value, so I don't think it is interfering.

Does anyone know what this might be?

Pre_Init event handler problem


Hi all my friends

   I have to masterpages for my home page.

1. The first is for the annonymous users which has the login controls. its name is General_Anonymous.master.

2. The second one is for the logged in users which has a logout button and it hasn't the login controls in it. its name is General_LoggedIn.master.

in my default.aspx page I wrote the following code

protected void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (Session["SupId"] == null && Session["CustomerId"] == null)
                this.MasterPageFile = "~/Masters/General_Anonymous.master";
                this.MasterPageFile = "~/Masters/General_LoggedIn.master";

Sharing a file handler between managed and unmanaged code?

This is related to Interops, and sharing a file handler between a WPF UI and a native C++ DLL. I'm working on an application using MVVM as a guide. I want to use WPF for the UI, however it is a complex scientific application, which requires performance, and I am using C++ along with some GPU based code for all the modeling/processing. This is a Windows based app, no real network comm involved. I come across a challenge in terms of storing data. The data is multi-dimensional, and can be projected in many ways, while each projection can be processed/filtered in many ways too. I end up with a tree of data, with the raw data at the root and many branches. XML seems like an ideal way to store the information about this dataset, but as far as the raw data, it is not so convenient. I read about base64 encoding and the various binary-XML techniques, but see a major issue: the size of the converted data (150% of the raw) which in my case is huge (raw data is easily 200MBs+, and the multitude of projections can make it several 100's of MBs easily). There is the option of saving several files, but then it may become a nightmare for a user to 'transfer' files properly, so a one-file system seems best. I basically need to have the XML-like structure accessible to the UI, while the raw data needs to be accessed by the unmanaged code. So I was thinking I could concat

Sharepoint Event Handler not firing

I have written an event handler for an ItemAdded eventfor a document library. I am trying to read an excel file being uploaded and extract a value from it which I write to a list column for the item. I have this working properly on my development machine which is a Windows Server 2003 machine.However, on a production Windows Server 2008 machine, the event handler never fires. I am doing a simple write to a log file to test and see if it runs at all even if the Excel parsing does not work but I get no indication that it ran. The event handler is being registered with a feature that I am deploying. I have verified that the event handler is registered to the library by using the u2u Event Handler Explorer tool.Is there any way I can determine if my event handlers are even executing? How can I debug this?

Event handler to delete minor versions in document libraries

Hi Is there a way we can capture the deletion of minor versions in document libraries using any event handler. May not be using the delete all the minor versions but at least when we use the option to delete the selected minor version. I do not see the ItemUpdating and ItemUpdated getting fired in this case.
