Alerts - Change Type section

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

In the "Specify the type of changes that you want to be alerted to" area, I want to set ONLY the "Alert Me About" to: ADDED ITEMS and CHANGED ITEMS. I do not want to know about DELETED ITEMS. Can you only choose one? I seem to only be able to do that so I am stuck with the ALL CHANGES setting.  My Outlook Inbox can sometimes be filled with 40 deleted items when our site editor gets busy cleaning house. They claim you can make it so I stop seeing all the deleted alerts, but I have yet to figure it out.

Suggestions? Tricks? Please reply if you have figured out the magic. Thanks. :)

(Oh and I am still in version 2003 but we are upgrading to 2010 in a few months and am praying it has a fix.)

Bug: Does not change column type from nvarchar to ntext


Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.

Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.

Change "from" name of MOSS Alerts

Instead of site name, I just want to change the "from" name of an Alert of a MOSS List. Is there any programmatically solution for that (like custom alerts)? Also it is possible to add "choice" column to a list and get value of it as "from" name. Any code sample will great help for me Thanks,Kusala

Handling Type namespace/assembly change during serialization

We needed to move a class from one assembly to another due to referencing issues.  However, we have Workflows in the field where this type is serialized into them and we get the Failed to load type error.  I was wondering if there was anything like AssemblyResolve for handling type load failures where we can correct the type and load the correct one?

Where is 'Change query type' (Enterprise manager) equivalent in the Management Studio


In sql server 2000 Enterprise manager, there was a ‘Change Query type’ icon and on clicking it, it gave you the option of changing the current query to a

I can’t seem to find this in SQL Server Management Studio, does it exist somewhere or is there an equivalent way of doing it. Any help would be appreciated.




How do I change the SelectParameter to accept a datetime sql type?


Hi all, 

If I ran my sproc from query analyzer, I get the correct results(data is filtered by datetime), i.e:

 exec Uds.Dashboard_GetJobs '9/20/2010 11:01:23 PM'

However, if I ran it from the Asp.Net page, (ALL records are showed). Looking at the SQL Profiler I see the following call:
 exec sp_executesql N'exec Uds.Dashboard_GetJobs',N'@date nvarchar(21)',@date=N'9/20/2010 11:01:23 PM'

Running both statements above in the query analyzer it WILL return me different results. Why???

Someone mentioned that it looks like I don't have correct data type specified for SQLParameter in .Net application.
I was asked to create something like: cmd.Parameters.Add("@Date",SqlDbType.DateTime).Value = ..

Well, my code in the asp.net is in this form:

   <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sourceRealtimeLogging" runat="server"
      ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:UctConnectionString %>"
      SelectCommand="exec Uds.Dashboard_GetJobs">
        <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="UpdatedTimeUTC" Name="date" PropertyName=&quo

SSRS Change field properties dependent on the render type


I've built a report that has background images with text over the top, which when rendered as Word or Excel the images don't show and because the client has requested the text is white against the image, the text isn't visible.

What I'd like to do is run code within the report that identifies the render type and if xls will change the text color through an expression.

Any ideas would be greatful.


Change the content type for multiple list items


I have a document library which is configured to manage content types.  Users will be expected to upload multiple documents into the library.  Then they will be expected to choose the content type of the file and fill in the required metadata.  The only difference in these content types is the template which will be used to create new files of the specific content type so the columns are identical for each content type.

I have created a public view with inline editing enabled but Content Type is not an editable field.

The problem I have is that when I enable Inline editing, the users don't have an opportunity to select the content type, even though the files have just been uploaded and have not been checked in.

My question is this; how can users change the content type of multiple items without having to go through the complete New Item form? 

With literally thousaands of documents to be imported, having the users fill out a separate form for each document when many will have the same column values is a show stopper for our rollout.  It will take too much time.  The project will be a failure. 

I've also tried to create a datagrid view but the same problem exists.  Content type is not an editable column value.

Thanks for helping.


Programmatically change DisplayName/ Title for custom content type


I've created a custom content type with the following code.

if (currentWeb.ContentTypes["My Content Type"] == null)
  var myContentType =
    new SPContentType(currentWeb.AvailableContentTypes[new SPContentTypeId("0x01")],
              currentWeb.ContentTypes, "My Content Type");


After that I add this content type to a generic list. If I now click on "New element" on my list ribbon I can add a new item with displayname "My Content Type". How can I change this value as I want to name my content types like "xxx content type" but don't want to see "xxx content type" in the "New element" action.

I expected the name of the content type to be some kind of internal and I'm looking for something to be change the displayname or title to be able to display something different. If I didn't made myself clear, I'll try to be more explicit. Thanks in advance.

Add a RichTextField in the "Additional Column Settings section" on custom field type



I have created at custom field type that will be used in a Custom List.

Almoste everything works ok, but there is one feature I can't figure out how to solve.

When I create the new column I want a custom property, displayed in the Addidional Column Settings sections. I know that I can easily solve this by adding a field in the xml-file, in the propertyschema section.

I want the custom property to be a RichTextField, but all I manage to create is a multiline textbox... Is it possible to do this??

Here is the xml I am using...

    <Field Name="TypeName">UserInfo1</Field>
    <Field Name="ParentType">Text</Field>
    <Field Name="TypeDisplayName">Login User Information</Field>
    <Field Name="TypeShortDescription">Current Login User Name</Field>
    <Field Name="UserCreatable">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="Sortable">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="AllowBaseTypeRendering">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="Filterable">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="FieldTypeClass">CustomFieldTypes.MyCustomField, CustomFieldTypes, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=xxxx</Field>

Change Content Type then Change Page Layout of an Existing Page


One of our content managers has added about 10 new web pages but has used the wrong page layout.  The site that these pages are in has 3 options of page layout that can be used.  They are:

(WDC Article) One Column-Std
(WDC Article) Two Column-Std
(WDC News) Public Notices and News

As you can see, there are 2 content types within the site.  The content manager has used the "(WDC Article) One Column-Std" page layout instead of the "(WDC News) Public Notices and News" page layout.

I have tried to edit the page layout via the 'Page Settings and Schedule' area but I only get the "(WDC Article) One Column-Std" and "(WDC Article) Two Column-Std" page layout options - there is no option to select "(WDC News) Public Notices and News".

I have tried to change the page content type from WDC Article to WDC News so I will have the "(WDC News) Public Notices and News" page layout option but it keeps reverting back to WDC Article or I get an error.

Any ideas of how I can change all pages that use "(WDC Article) One Column-Std" page layout to "(WDC News) Public Notices and News" page layout (the correct layout)?

Thanks :)

Change data type of library field from Single Line Text to currency


I have an InfoPath 2010 form that has a field listing the amount of currency on a meter. It is a Decimal form in Infopath but publishes to SharePoint as a Single Line of Text.  It will not let me modify the column in SharePoint and it will not let me select the allow edit from the Publishing Wizard.  I need the column as a currency so my Excel Queries work.
