Digital Dashboards: Web Parts Integrate with Internet Explorer and Outlook to Build Personal Portals

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Digital dashboards gather information and functionalities from a wide variety of sources ranging from Web pages to applications such as Microsoft Outlook and SQL Server, and present the resulting information in a single user interface. Digital dashboards built with the Digital Dashboard Resource Kit (DDRK) are made up of distinct units called Web Parts. Web Parts, introduced with the DDRK 2.01, can contain any Web-based information, are reusable, and integrate with each other and with other dashboards. Creating Web Parts and getting them to work together is illustrated via a sample application that uses a PivotTable view. Integrating Web Parts with Outlook, the Outlook View control, storage, and debugging are also covered.

DHTML and .NET: Host Secure, Lightweight Client-Side Controls in Microsoft Internet Explorer

By hosting .NET Windows Forms controls in Internet Explorer, developers can realize many of their client-side Web development goals. This article adapts ActiveX concepts for use with Windows Forms, and builds a multifile upload application that demonstrates these techniques.

Microsoft Office 2000: Create Dynamic Digital Dashboards Using Office, OLAP, and DHTML


Digital Dashboards provide users with one single interface through which they can view information from a variety of sources that have been chosen specifically for that user. In addition, dashboards allow a user to view the information offline, adding portability to the mix. This article discusses options for building a dashboard based on the Microsoft Outlook folder home pages feature. It covers culling the data from disparate sources and storing it using the MSDE. It then discusses the creation of nugget definitions for structuring the data, and providing a synchronization mechanism to update to the data stores.

CSS font is working in FireFox but not in Internet Explorer 8.0

Hi All, I tried a lot but I could not figure out why the IE is not taking font size and name in to effect from CSS. In firefox my website could be seen very nice but in IE it is little bit unshiny and font size is bigger For the difference which I am talking about could be seen  if your PC have both firefox and IE installed. Please go to http://www.nymidtowndentistry.com open it in FF and IE and you could see the font and alignment related change. All these settings are in body element of CSS. Do you any idea regarding this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time. -Hitesh

Silverlight gives the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Hello, I'm new to SharePoint 2010.  I have an SP2010 environment up and running.  When I click on a link that activates Silverlight, I get an error that reads "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".  The Server is on a different domain. When I use remote desktop to access the server, I can open up the same link using IE and I can see the content no problem. An example would be from the calendar page.  If I choose a date and select 'add', the browser fades and I see a 'loading' screen.  Then the next screen I get the error.  If I follow the same process on the server using remote desktop, everything works. What could the problem be?
