Hello,

i want to deploy a Master Page as a Feature in Sharepoint 2010.
I followed the Steps in this Article, but i get some Errors.
http://www.sharepointchick.com/archive/2010/03/26/deploying-a-custom-master-page-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx

When i deploy the Solution in VS2010 and enter my SP Site, i get an Error: File not found.
I discover, that my sample.master File were not copied into the _catalogs/masterpage Directory.
When i copy the File manuell into this Directory, i can open my Site correctly, but in the Feature Overview my Feature is deactivated.
When i try to activate it, i get an Errormessage:
The specified File in this Modul section is already in place.
I renamed my sample.master File but is still the same Error.

Can anyone help me?

Retracting feature which deployed custom master page delete default.master

  
Hi, I am not sure if solution to this issue is already posted? I have my feature which copy my custom.master which is copy of default.master from hive to master page gallery of web. The problem is that everything works fine with feature activate and deactivate but when I retract the solution from the server. All pages except site settings page stop working saying "file not found". I redeploy the solution, it starts working again. Looks like the retract is deleting default.master as well? I have this issue in 2010 as well. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Kashish

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha

MOSS 2007 - Add "Email Page to Friend" feature to Actions menu or to site master page.

  

My Communications Director would like us to add an "Email this Page to a Friend" type of feature to our SharePoint 2007 Intranet.  They would ideally like to have this feature available on every page.  But I was thinking that even if we could add this item to the List Actions menu it would suffice.  Does anyone know of a webpart that will do this or can offer some custom code and instructions on how to make this happen?

Thanks

SharePoint 2010 Master page feature stapling - not sure where to put files

  

I have successfully added a branding feature to my 2010 environment that activates on install. Just as expected, it does not work for subsite creation. I have seen a number of articles/blog posts on how to create a feature stapler for SP2007. However, I am having a hard time finding a working solution for SP2010 using VS2010.

I have a couple of questions that I hope someone can point me in the right direction on:

1. In my project I have a branding feature, this contains the EventReceiver that applies the change. Can I have a second feature here that does the stapling or does it need to be in a completely seperate project?

2. Everything I read points to two files feature.xml and elements.xml, are both of those supposed to be under Features in Solution Explorer or are they located somewhere else or do they need to be create. If they need to be created, where do they belong?

3. In the EventReceiver.cs file there is a GUID that was automatically generated. Is this the GUID referenced in the feature.xml?

Hopefully with these questions answered I can move forward and find a solution to getting the stapler working.

Thanks,

Unique content within master page based on conditions met

  

 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?

Thanks!


Passing Linq Statement between master and content page

  

I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
        Get
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result
   'then

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
        Else
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub


On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If


m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks


Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.

  

I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...

Not getting multiple composite controls on master page

  

I have created two composite controls in the same assembly and registered that assembly in a master page using <%@ Register tag.

When I try to use these controls using the registered tag prefix I am getting only one control along with the tagprefix .

How to get all the composite controls present in the registered assembly?


Master Pages: Master Your Site Design with Visual Inheritance and Page Templates

  

Master pages in ASP.NET 2.0 solve a problem many Web developers have been solving on their own with a variety of techniques for years - providing a single master template for an entire site. This article covers the details of master pages, discussing their usage and implementation and how they are a natural evolution of custom techniques developers are using today.

Is master page a best alternative for Frame Sets ??

  

My webpage has one banner with a logo, a vertical menu bar on the left side of the page and a footer . I have 5 other pages which should get loaded when the user select them from the menu bar. what my concern is actually the banner,  menu bar  and the footer should not change when the requested page loads. This definitely can be handled by sets. But I want to know whether there are any other alternatives for frame sets or could master page be helpful for this purpose ????? 


Any help would be appreciative .

Why do the aks master pages not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collecti

  
Hi

I installed AKS 2.0 and activated AKS feature. The problem I found was the aks master pages do not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collection. why is so?

example: If i activate the feature on http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> and apply the master page, I dont see any changes.

              But if i activate the same aks feature on http://<servername/ then everything started working on all sites.

              The reason i found is the CSS reference in the aks master pages.

              It reference should be given as follows:

                 for http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> ->  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

                 for http://<servername>/ -><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

So my question is, am i missing anything? am i supposed to activate the AKS feature on top level site collection at any cost? if yes, why is so? 

And after applying aks master pages, i see differnece in font sizes. Why the font size is getting changed?
