How did they link directly to views in the Bugs Database Template?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I just created a site using the SharePoint Bug Database Template.  I would like to know how, in the Quick Launch, they are able to link directly to pages that display different views of the bugs list.  My understanding is that the only way to do this would be to create a blank .aspx page, and drop a web part on it that shows the list, then in modifying the web part, tell it what view to display.  I did this in another site I built.

However, in the Bugs site, I don't see any indication that it was done that way.  When looking at All Site Content I don't see a list of web pages (with the webpart) that display these views.  Also, the modify webpart drop down arrow is not visible on any of the pages.

Was this done in a different way on this site template?  I'd be grateful if anyone could tell me how it was done, so that I might use that method next time around.

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

This article shows you how the Explorer Web view works and how to build your own custom templates for it. You'll see how to add a command prompt and task buttons to a new folder view using HTML, script, and ActiveX controls.

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

Custom Entity Framework template and access to the database type

First and foremost ... I already made a few changes in the template, the most important one changing the methods generated for stored procedures with OUTPUT parameters and no resultset so that instead of instantiating a few OutputParameter objects, passing them to the method and extracting the values (all without any type checking) you just call the method with a few "out someType?" parameters so I do not need the very basics. I am totally confused by all those GlobalItem, EdmProperty, BuiltInTypeKind, TypeUsage and all this made of objects, all alike and all different though so as soon as I need more data than what's already used by the template I run into problems :-(What I would like is to change the WritePrimitiveTypeProperty() so that it outputs [StringLength(xxx)]  for all char, varchar, nchar and nvarchar properties. But I can't find a way to get from an EdmProperty in the model to the database type in the store.Can anyone help me?In case anyone is interested here's the modified stored procedure mapping code for the template. The first code replaces the original in the .tt: //////// //////// Write EntityContainer and ObjectContext Function Import methods. //////// region.Begin(GetResourceString("Template_RegionFunctionImports")); foreach (EdmFunction edmFunction in container.FunctionIm

Projects Web Database Site Template immediate error

I decided to explore the Projects Web Database site template - clicked to create the site, and immediately, received an "an error has occurred." message on almost every tab of the site. What am I missing?  Am I supposed to configure something before I create this type of site?   I get this error in the event viewer: Log Name:      Application Source:        Microsoft-SharePoint Products-Access Services Date:          9/8/2010 10:03:43 PM Event ID:      3 Task Category: Data Layer     Access Services: An unexpected error occurred. Exception message: There is a compatibility range mismatch between the Web server and database "WSS_Content_PT", and connections to the data have been blocked to due to this incompatibility. This can happen when a content database has not been upgraded to be within the compatibility range of the Web server, or if the database has been upgraded to a higher level than the web server. The Web server and the database must be upgraded to the same version and build level to return to compatibility range.   Any help is appreciated!  Thanks!  

Saving a Template Directly to a SharePoint Document Library


I have created several content types to create new documents in a document library, did all the plumbing and stuff and it works great. So a user selects new, then selects the contenty type and the associated template opens. User edits the document and when (s)he is happy presses save and then....the user is prompted with a dialog box pointing to "his local harddrive" instead of the document library!!

In MOSS2007 when a user did the above he could directly save it to the document library.

How can I let SharePoint 2010 save a template directly to a SharePoint Document Library?

Link Directly to InfoPath Web Form

I've got an InfoPath form connected to a form library.  I have it configured to use the browser to fill it out.  When I go to the library and click "New" everything works GREAT.  What I want to do is provide a link off my home page directly to the form itself.  Is this possible?  When I just copy the URL, it prompts the user to Open/Cancel/Save the xsn.  That's not what I'm looking for.

Link to photo url in an Access Web Database


Can someone tell me if it is possible to link to photos urls (photos not stored locally) on the web in an Access Web Database table?

We want photos to be displayed in when the database is published to SharePoint, but would prefer not to host the photos on our server.

If this is possible - I'd love to know how, and a quick explanation of what code will make this work.


Thanks in advance!
