Custom Field Control 'not registered as safe'


Hi all,


my goal is to create a custom field control based on a custom field, to be part of a custom content type which derives from a publishing page. Also I want the custom field control to be part of a custom page layout which is associated with my custom content type.


I followed the steps from Patrick Tisseghems book 'Inside MOSS2007', which includes the following instructions:


  • Create and implement the following classes: CustomField, CustomFieldValue, CustomFieldControl. Sign them and deploy the assembly to the GAC.
  • Create a User Control Custom.ascx. Copy it to Controltemplates directory.
  • Create fldtypes_custom.xml and copy to 12\TEMPLATE\XML
  • Add <SafeControl /> entry to web.config

I did of all the above plus I created a page layout in SharePoint Designer which contains an instance of my CustomFieldControl.


When I create an instance of CustomPage (derived content type from Publishing Page, with extra field of type CustomField) with my custom page layout and add it to the Pages library of my Publishing site, everything seems to go fine. When i edit properties of the page with /Pages/Forms/EditForm.aspx I can even edit the custom field value trough the interface using mu custom field control! Everything seems to work perfectly!

Individual field - MySQL



I was wondering how to recieve an individual field from my MySQL database.

I have been able to get a row, but what I am trying to do is get a name from my database and set it into the HeaderText in my DataGrid.

The way I am trying to do it at the moment is

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
                formDataGrid.Columns[0].HeaderText = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |

This doesn't seem to get a value from the GetValue, but if use

using (OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand(formQuery, con))
                formDataGrid.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader(
                    CommandBehavior.CloseConnection |

it will bind my data into the grid.

I just want to be able to change the HeaderText in the first coulmn of the DataGrid from one table and have the DataGrid be filled from another table.

I can fill the DataGrid its just changing the HeaderText that I am having trouble with.

Any help?

Delegates in .NET: A Primer on Creating Type-Safe References to Methods in Visual Basic .NET


Delegates, new in Visual Basic .NET, are type-safe, object-oriented references to methods. By using delegates, you make your methods accessible to others and therefore more extensible. This article provides an introduction to delegates, their benefits, and how they are used.Here the author shows you how to declare, create, and use delegates to invoke instance and shared methods at run time, and how to implement delegates as properties. He then goes on to provide examples of how delegates are used for callback functionality and explains the relationship between delegates and events. Finally, the article provides a glimpse at how delegates are implemented in intermediate language code by the Visual Basic .NET compiler.

.NET Column: Safe Thread Synchronization


By far, the most common use of thread synchronization is to ensure mutually exclusive access to a shared resource by multiple threads. In the Win32® API, the CRITICAL_SECTION structure and associated functions offers the fastest and most efficient way to synchronize threads for mutually exclusive access when the threads are all running in a single process.
