RedirectToAction() go to View that was being viewed instead of home page

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am using some Html.ActionLinks to change the value of a Session variable. Right now I am RedirectToAction("Index","Home"). This puts the user back at the home page every time they change that value. I would like to return the user to the view they were one when they clicked that link instead of redirecting them back to the home page. How can I do that?

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Viewing your In-Box from the Home Page


I have a user request to access the user's Outlook In-Box from the home page in SP 2010.  The OWS In Box web part requires a hard-coded email address.  Is there any way to have the web part accept a variable?  That way I could pass the email address from AD.

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.


Add page numbers for paging in data view web part


Hello all,

Has anyone found a solution that will allow me to have page numbers for paging in a data view web part. For instance, if I have 40 items/rows and I set the paging to display 10 items, I'd like the paging to show 1 2 3 4 rather than showing 1-10 and having to click next over and over to get to a specific item.

I found this article, but it is for 2003 and doesn't seem to apply to 2007 or if it does I am not able to really figure out how.


Please help!

Thanks in advance.

making page work after DB update in Form View

I could really use some help with this issue. I have a DropDown that allows the selection of a Category Code. The selection populates a Gridview with details of records matching the Category Code. I have only enabled the Select option on the Gridview, which when clicked populates a Formview in Edit Mode with the full record information. When editing is complete and the Update link is clicked, I can not get the page to properly reload/postback. When another Category Code is selected from the Drop Down the Gridview does not report a list of records.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks,              

How to pass page column value to data view parameters

Hi All, I have a page library with custom column, lets call it "FormCourseId". On that page I have data view which retrieves data from custom list filtered by page column "FormCourseId". In parameter wizard creates the following tag <ParameterBinding Name="ListCourseId" Location="Form(FormCourseId)" DefaultValue=""/> Then I try to use that parameter in XSLT of data view as a filter creteria.  <xsl:param name="CourseId"></xsl:param> It does not work for me. If I change data view parameter source from Form to Query String and pass parameter as url one it works fine. What is wrong with page column parameter binding? May be if FormCourseId column is not presented in form layout as a field(I do not need to show that field in user form of the page) it could not be treated as form parameter?

Design view displays blank page

I'm relatively new to VWD and am using the Express version.  My web site is simple with a few connections to SQL Server data and to XML documents just to populate controls to display data.  After adding a new web page, linking its controls to an XML document and running it successfully, I discovered that I can no longer display the page in the Design view, I just get a blank screen.  To further confuse things I opened my root master page, which appears just fine.  I then opened the master page derived from this root master and it shows me content placeholders but not the controls inside the content placeholders.  If I have one of the master pages open in VWD and then I open the base page, I now see the data from the root master page but nothing from the base page or the derived master page. I think I'm doing something basically wrong but I don't see it.  Before I start deconstructing my web site I'm hoping someone can help me.  I have looked at a lot of posts on this site but I don't see one that answers my problem.  I did see the one about style and links and their ordering in the aspx file, but this isn't my problem as I currently have neither of these in use. TIA Jon

Permission Errors for Users on Home Page only of SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager

I have spent days now investigating this problem, so any help very much appreciated! I have a remote web server 2003 running SQL Server R2 Express Edition with Reporting Services installed. I use Report Builder 3.0 locally to build report. If I login via Internet to Report Manager Web Page as an administrator I can perform all the expected and required actions, creating new folders and assigning permissions for users etc. I have added a new user "ReportUser" as a Browser of a child folder. If ReportUser longs on to home page, he receives the all too familiar error: User 'XXXXXXXX\reportuser' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. However, if the user starts at the child folder of home page, and then logs in, he sees the expected page, and can run the report!  This is not very satisfactory. How can I allow user to see home page, without an error message, but not be allowed to click on any folders to which he is not entitled? I am now aware that SQL Server R2 Express Edition has many limitations compared with full Editions (fixed roles, cannot manage Report Service from Management Studio etc) , and many of the "solutions" offered on the web just do not apply.   John Walton

Adding ListViewWebPart to a page - how do you set its view to

If you add a ListViewWebPart to a wiki/web part page (such as the Links list), it will default to the <summary View>.  If you add it using code, it will default to the default view.  How can I set it to use the <Summary View>? I tried setting node.Attributes["BaseViewID"].Value = "0" in the web part view xml, but that didn't do anything. Any thoughts? ListViewWebPart wpLinks = new ListViewWebPart(); SPList listLinks = site.Lists["Links"]; wpLinks.ListName = listLinks.ID.ToString("B").ToUpper(); wpLinks.ViewGuid = listLinks.DefaultView.ID.ToString("B").ToUpper(); AddToolBar(wpLinks, "Add new link"); private void AddToolBar(System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart wp, string label) { // Get the view used in the web part by using reflection PropertyInfo viewProp = wp.GetType().GetProperty("View", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance); SPView webPartView = viewProp.GetValue(wp, null) as SPView; // This is necessary after the infrastructure update, without it you can't get to the XML of the view webPartView.GetType().InvokeMember("EnsureFullBlownXmlDocument", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, webPartView, null, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.Current

How to link Title to it's associated page in list view without URL path column visible -bug?

I don't know if this is a bug or if I'm an idiot (or perhaps both, I'm open minded).   My site I'm developing is a site with publishing features activated where all my news stories are pages. What I want to have is a sortable list (the type hypothetically achieved using the XsltListView Web Part) the lists these pages with 3 columns visible: The Date created, the title (not the page name), and the author. The tricky part is that I would like the title, when clicked on, to take the person to the page. I'm actually almost there. I've created a new view with these specifications except for one issue. To make the title linked to the page, I have to have the column "URL Path" in my list view. When I remove this column, the titles instead all link to the root of the directory I'm in (ex: if I'm in Pages/Forms/My_List.aspx it will link to Pages/Forms/) Is this a bug, or is the URL Path required for the link to work? Is there a way to hide the column? Thanks.
