Recycle bin, how can one see items deleted by others ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


When I have contribute rights I can delete items from a list/library.
I'll find these items when I open the recycle bin.

When a colleague of mine checks the list/library he doesn't find the item I deleted.
When he opens the recycle bin, he doesn't see the item there.

How can I change this behavior? It would be nearly impossible to search who deleted something in order to ask them to restore it, and it shouldn't be something to ask the site collection administrator each time because it's a basic task for end users.

Can't see items in the recycle bin

I cannot see items in the recycle bin, but others can see items there.  I am an owner of the site and this there are no modifications to the default master page.  Anyone know what is going on here?

Alerts include Deleted Items

I've got an annoucements list that I want to send a daily summary email at Noon for newly added items.  I've got the alert going fine, but noticed a problem when a user posted an item that needed to be deleted.  Despite being deleted in the list before noon, the Alert that went at noon included the deleted item.

I've tried creating a custom column called "visible" that is a boolean yes/no.  I set up the alert to only show items in the view that shows where Visible = true, or where Visible != false.  Both ways when items are added as Visible and first, but changed to Invisible later, the Alert still contains the items that are currently not showing in the list.

This is a major Oversight.  Items that are deleted before from a List should not go in a daily summary alert that is only for newly added items.  Does anybody have a workaround for this problem?

Event ID 5586 when deleting items from Admin recycle bin


We have one WFE running MOSS 2007 August 2009 Cumulative Update, one Index Server(same MOSS version) and a separate SQL server 2005 SP2 64 bit.

Attempting to delete items from Admin recycle bin, get a SharePoint Unknown Error. Application log has this entry:

Event Type: Error

Unknown SQL Exception 515 occured. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'DiskUsed', table 'databasename.dbo.SiteQuota'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails.
The statement has been terminated..

Any ideas of how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Deleted 60GB of data from both recycle bins, database still massive. - How can I shrink it?



I have a 90GB ContentDB, that was full of 1000's of infopath forms... I have deleted all the forms, and the database remains the same size, and when I go to shrink the database it says no free space is available in SQL Server Management Studio.

Do I have to wait for the recycle bin retention date to kick in, regardless of having deleted the data from BOTH the end user and site collection recycle bins?

I really need to get the size of the database down before backing it up and moving the site collection.

Incremental Content Deployment is not removing the deleted list items from target site



I am trying to do an incremental content deployment. The incremental content deployment is not removing the deleted items from target site. I checked the export log. But I did not anything there. 

Please give me some pointers. Also in case of deletion how incremental content push works. I mean, one user deletes an item and now it is inside his/her recycle bin, now how incremental content deployment put this in export log.



jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

Hide a repeater in ASP.NET C# if the DataSource contains no items?

I have an ASP.NET page that uses a repeater nested within another repeater to generate a listing of data. It's to the effect of the following:
In the (C#) code-behind I'm basically using LINQ to pull a listing of information from an XML document and bind that information to the first repeater.

Searching for the answer to this, it seems the method is to determine whether the data for the nested repeater is empty. If it is, then you set the visibility of the repeater to false.

Creating SharePoint items with CreateItemActivity

Instead of creating new list items from code in your workflow you can use CreateItemActivity. CreateItemActivity can be used for creating list items or files. Properties of interest for this activity are the following (most of them are self-explanatory):

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).

HttpContext.Items and Server.Transfer/Execute

The problem was basically that when a Server.Transfer call was applied the script container (and also various ClientScriptProxy script embedding routines) would potentially fail to load up the specified scripts.

Get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB.net - C#.net.

n this simple article you will learn that how we can get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB and C#.net.

Get Pixel Format:

Image consists of pixels to get the format of the pixel we have a property named pixel format. This property returns an enumeration of pixel format. This enumeration tells the pixel format.

To demonstrate make a window application. Drag one button and a picture box on form.

Now write the following code on Button click event:

ListViewControl - how to group items by their value, for eg. date range



I have a table containing courses, columns are 

Name - "Yoga Classes"

DateStart - "2/23/2010"

DateEnd - "2/24/2010"

I am using ListView Control to bind it, is there a way to display them and group them by Month? 

for eg.


Piano Class (10th Jan 2010 - 11th Jan 2010)
Guitar Class (10th Jan 2010 - 11th Jan 2010)


Yoga Class (15th Feb 2010 - 16th Feb 2010)

Thanks for help.

Adding new items to a Repeater control with transitions?



I am currently in the process of writing a facebook type 'activity feed' for a site. Currently I am binding the last 10 items to a repeater control, which contains a usercontrol representing each item. This works fine but there are a couple of requiremnts that are giving me problems and wondered if the the good people of the forum could make some suggestions.

The requirement is that when a user clicks a refresh button any new events are added to the top of the list, the previous items drop down and the equivalent number of old items drop off the bottom, all with nice slider transitions.

I have put the repeater inside of an update control and are able to handle the transitions by using RegisterStartup script to drop jquery calls onto the page for the slider. However I cannot find a way to dynamically add or remove new datarows to the repeater. I need the old items to stay in the repeater and be pushed down by the new items, so completely refreshing the datasource seems like a bad idea.

I was thinking about maybe storing the datasource in the viewstate and adding rows to that, maybe with an extra column on the end which stores what transition is needed on the databind for my jquery, but there will be a 'View more items' link at the bottom of the page, so I am worried that the list could get pretty large and there

LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out. 



    protected void enterBTN_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        SHCDataContext insNewAll = new SHCDataContext();

        var checkExisting = from c in insNewAll.Customers
                            where c.custLastName.Contains(custLastNameTB.Text.ToString())
                            select c.custLastName;
