How To Disable Workflow Report

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


When workflows run, you have the workflow history to see what items ran and if they were completed, cancelled or still in progress.

If you click on either the name of the workflow or it's status, it takes you to another page where your workflows are itemized with 2 options namely the Activity Duration Report and the Cancellation & Error Report . Beside these options is an icon that shows the content is going to be an xml content.

Typically, Activity Duration Report shows "ERROR, report contains no data". This is absolutely fine by me, at least the message is helpful, it tells the user sorry there is nothing here. That's totally cool.

BUT, the Cancellation & Error Report returns a whole lot of xml strings, which is not helpful to the user. It's just scary! Now I have a user who treats my project as a project and does testing, and as well keeps a scary list known as BUGS and SNAGS LIST . This list scares everyone because it grows daily. Now the users wants this item, this xml stuff out, you get the picture?

How do I do that? Thanks.

You've only got one life; help as many people as you can, and enjoy it while it lasts.

Disable Expand All/Collapse All workflow designer hyperlinks?

Hi,In a blog post by Matt Winker (http://blogs.msdn.com/mwinkle/archive/2009/10/20/wf4-designer-enhancements-in-vs-2010-beta-2.aspx), he notes that: "Additionally, you can choose to expand or collapse individual nodes, or go to the "Expand All" command in order to expand out the tree.  One thing to note is that we don't allow expansion inside of a flowchart because we don't yet have a mechanism that lets me rearrange all of the items around that newly expanded activity.  "My question is, will there be a way by the time RTM releases to do expansion within a flow chart?  The flow chart model is what I'll be using exclusively, so I'm quite interesetd in this.If there will not be support by the time workflow reaches RTM, is there or will there be a way that we can hide the Expand All/Collapse All hyperlinks?Thank you,Notre

Disable an activity in Designer at run time in workflow 4.0

There are couple of activities in my workflow & based on some condition, I need to make an activity disabled i.e. I don't want that activity to be seletable by the user. I am opening my workflow in designer at run time to give an overview of WF to the user. Something like  (new DesignerMetadata()).Register(); this.wd = new System.Activities.Presentation.WorkflowDesigner(); this.designerSection.Child = (this.wd.View); I was going thru the MS sample of CommentOut Activity but that won't solve my requirement as Activity needs to be disabled at run time based on some condition.

WorkFlow report

Hi, I am trying to create a workflow which will email some users every 24 hours.  I created a workflow and insert a while loop into it and add a delay activity. Delay activity works only once and workflow ends. Although I want this workflow to work until I terminate it but it finishes itself after only one iteration.  I am start to thinking what I want is not possible to do with workflows but I wanted to check other people’s ideas or solutions. Please give me some ideas.

Alternating row background for first column of a report


is there a way to make the first column of a report use the an alternating background color? 

I have the background color set for the entire row however it does not work for the first column if the color is set to an expression.  If I just set it to a color i.e. red it works just fine. If I insert a dummy column to the left it works just fine (but the dummy column does not work, presumably because it is first??).

In the file below only the textbox for part number does not show an alternating background.  All others work correctly.

                    <Textbox Name="PartNumber">

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?
