BCS duplicate matches when few external items

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Here's the deal:

I have a BCS setupped and I can use External Item Picker normally. But, when I begin typing a word then I click the "Check if external item exists" button and there are between 2 and 9 possible matches, it repeats all the matches once, until the list counts a max of 10 items. If I click the link "More Items..." I can see the matches, without the duplicates.

I suppose the max of 10 is a normal settings. But why the duplicate items?

Is it a known bug? If so, is there a patch or a solution?

Thanks

External List - Access Selected Items

  
Hello, The situation;- An external list in SP 2010 from SQL A custom ribbon/button that calls via JS a Dialog box(Application page) and passes the selected items IDs Some code behind to process items after confirmation from user. Question is how to access the selected items in the code behind. As far as I can tell the JS 'getselecteditems' only returns the list ID, which in the case of a standard list is fine, but with an External list returns something like '_B00234' - how do I use this or how to return a more meaningfull ID? (I would rather work in my confort zone VB/C# than JS to process items) casey

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

  
I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

WPF Ribbon - specifying default items for QuickAccessToolBar without creating a duplicate of each b

  

With the WPF 2010 Ribbon control, I want to load in a few existing Ribbon buttons to the QuickAccessToolbar when my application starts up.  From what I can see, the only way to do this is to copy/paste each button into the RibbonQuickAccessToolbar container...

Is there a better way? I've noticed a RibbonButton.IsInQuickAccessToolbar property, but it's setter is Internal.

Ultimately I need to be able to to save and load the QAT configuration for each user session, but I don't see how this is going to work.  I've also tried binding the QAT ItemSource to a collection, which works, but then you can't right click Ribbon buttons to add them at runtime.

Any suggestions?

Specifying path to external items (Sharepoint Document Library)

  

I continue to have trouble getting a subreport to display from within a main report that is stored in a SharePoint Foundation 2010 document library.  My report server is configured in SharePoint Integrated Mode.

A TechNet article, Specifying Paths to External Items (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS) [http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd220423.aspx], includes the following instructions:

When you specify a path for an external item in a dialog box for actions, subreports, or images, you can browse directly to the report server and select the item. Browsing to an item and selecting it directly is the recommended way to specify a drillthrough report or subreport. That way the correct parameter names will be available in a drop-down list when you specify report or subreport parameters. When you change an item path to point to a different item, you must manually update the correct parameter names and values as needed.

On a report server configured in SharePoint integrated mode, you must include the file extension .rdl. The path can be one of the following:

  • A full path to the item.  On a SharePoint site: You must specify the report name in an expression, with the full URL of the item and the file extension .rdl. For example, ="http://server/site/lib

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:

Adding new items to a Repeater control with transitions?

  

Hi,

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

Hi all,

     I have a very unique problem, humm i think. I am using a jquery effect that animate bounce effect, i have a line in my javascript pageLoad function $("#UserBrowserInfoDIV").show('bounce'); - the effects run smoothly but what it does is mess up the bolded text in the div.

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

  

Hello,

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. 

Thanks,

Pete

Handling external C++ exceptions

  

Hi. I'm working in a application that uses an external .Dll developed in C++ language. According the business rule, the .Dll can throws one exception if it found a error. My question is if it's possible handle or catch a exception throwed by the C++ dll? The try/catch doesn't works. Bellow there's the code I'm using to call the C++ dll.

        [DllImport("kernel32")]
        public extern static IntPtr LoadLibrary(string lpLibFileName);

        [DllImport("kernel32", CharSet = CharSet.Ansi)]
        public extern static IntPtr GetProcAddress(IntPtr hLibModule, string procName);

        [DllImport("kernel32")]
        public extern static bool FreeLibrary(IntPtr hLibModule);
