Silverlight access SharePoint Workspace offline lists

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Is it possible to access SharePoint Workspace data from a silverlight out-of-browser application?

We need to have data offline and be able to sync it back later on. Data is stored in external lists and we want to be able to read and write to the external lists offline from a more user friendly GUI such as a Silverlight application. Infopath forms can not do the advanced GUI things we want to do, therefore it is not an option.

Problems with access to external lists in SharePoint 2010

Our environment is SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and SQL server 2008 R2.   We have External lists that access a local database in SharePoint SQL Server. When new lists are added and permissions are given in the SharePoint Central Administration the domain users had to be in the Windows administration group to access the lists.   Recently in the same environment the domain users were removed from Windows Administration user group and could access the external lists.   In another similar test server we found adding the domain users to Windows Administration does not give the new domain users access to External lists.   The inconsistency is the issue. Has anyone seen this issue or provide a possible solution?

Can not access SharePoint Lists from ASP.NET web application



I don't know if this is the right place for this but is related to SharePoint.

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://server/siteName/"))
       if (site != null)
         using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
           foreach (SPList myList in web.Lists)


Example this code above:

I connected remotelly on the server, and in VS 2010 created a new ASP.NET Web Site. Added a new .aspx page and in code behind in the Page_Load event handler i put the code above. (lbLists is a ListBox on the .aspx page).

When i run this page and try to see the results in browser it doesen't work!!

The same code works perfectly on a windows form application!! What is the reason why it is not working?

It ment to not work? How can i make a web application (ASP.NET) that i can access a SharePoint site programmatically and display the items?

Then i want to deploy this app and run it in browser.


Sharepoint 2010 - Lists not displaying Edit (Link to item) for Users with Edit Only access



I am using Sharepoint 2010.  I have several lists whose view includes the column "Edit (Link to Item)" in the default view.  I am the site admin so when I view the list the "Edit" column appears with the small "paper and pencil" icon and it works when clicked. 

I needed some users to only be able to view and edit existing items (not add or delete).  So I have created a site level permissions that I copied from "Read" and only checked the "Edit Items  -  Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries" under Lists. 

This new permission level does allow users to see the edit menu item on the standard "Title" hyperlink dropdown, but in the"Edit" column there isn't an icon or any clickable link to edit in the column.  Only from the menu.  Its as if the icon won't appear if I don't give them Add capability which is what I don't want.

 Thanks for any tips,

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

SharePoint Tutorial - Lists

A list is a feature in SharePoint that stores a lists of information. For example, a list can be created to store web links in the human resources team site. A list is usually created for a specific type of information. Lists can contain metadata to describe the particular information in more detail and to make it easier to find.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Easier Silverlight Development against SharePoint

I have been spending quite a bit of time lately working with Silverlight 3 and SharePoint. One of the first big shifts for me is that Silverlight Development is Client development. Silverlight runs in the browser, but it runs on the client, so no SharePoint Object Model code. You have to access all of the goodness that is SharePoint through its web services.
