Hey I have a window with a Control, pretty simple.. It's like this:

<ResourceDictionary Source ="/Xaml/TraceView.xaml"/>
<Control c/>

<Control c>

<DataTrigger Property = *TheEnum* Value= eg. Startup>
<Setter Property = Template Value={StaticResource ResourceKey="StartupView"}/>

Password change control won`t accept new password


Hi guys

I am developing a shopping cart with asp.net and sqlexpress. I am using aspnet authentication components to create a backend page. I designed the site to let in only authorized users in. 

Yesterday, I forget my password to login to backend and asked system recover my password. with recover password of the asp.net I was able to receive the temp password. I took that and logged in, of course asp.net forward me to password change component which I am having problem with. 

Every time I change my password , password change shows that I was successfull but after clicking on the continiue button password change component comes back. I went to properties of password change component and entered the main default page as destination but it is not helping. 

I close the IE clear the cache , even restart the machine. When I login always taking me to the password change page.

So, I need your help with this. Please let me know your inputs.


Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

Can't get ClientID of ASP control in Rendering template

Hi, I've made custom field with its own rendering template. Inside template i need to show/hide some controls, but i cant get ClientID of them. Inside rendering template : <%@ Assembly Name="XXX, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=72277ea422a3515d" %> <%@ Assembly Name="Microsoft.Web.CommandUI, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %> <%@ Register Tagprefix="SharePoint" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %> <%@ Register Tagprefix="Utilities" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %> <%@ Register Tagprefix="asp" Namespace="System.Web.UI" Assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" %> <%@ Import Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint" %> <%@ Register Tagprefix="WebPartPages" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %> <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true&q

Creating a volume control slider/setting one template property based on another

So, what I want to do, is to make a volume control that looks like a right angle triangle with the 90 degree angle on the bottom right, and then when you click on it, the area to the left of the selected point is shown in a different color.  In other words, I've created a slider with the right background, what I can't do, is work out how to show the selected area by filling in the triangle.  I have worked out how to bind the height of my triangle on the left to the value of the control, but right now, the rate of rise is exactly half of what I need it to be.  I need to know how to change the template for the area to the left of the selection ( which is the repeat button ) so that the background is twice the height that it is right now.  No matter what size I make the slider, the area is always 1/2 the size it needs to be, so I am sure if I could get it to double inside my template, it would work fine. <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">       <Style x:Key="SliderButtonStyle" TargetType="{x:Type RepeatButton}">         <Setter Property="SnapsToDevicePixels" Value="true"/>         <

Use update progress control to change image control imageurl

UPDATE: Apologies for the previous formatting error - hopefully the post is now more readable... Hi I have a button with an image control next to it. Before the button is clicked, the image control "ConfirmedStatusImage" shows a "cancel.png" image. When the button has been clicked (and some other code successfully executed), then I change the imageurl for the "theConfirmedStatusImage" to show a "ok.png" image. Quite a bit of time can often pass between clicking the button and the associated code executing, so I have an ajax update progress control that shows a "bluespinner.gif" image while the page is updating after the button click. At the moment, the update progress updating image appears next to the "ConfirmedStatusImage" control. However, I would like to change things so that when the update progress starts, the imageurl of "ConfirmedStatusImage" changes from "cancel.png" to the update progress image (i.e., the "bluespinner.gif"). Then, when the update is complete, then the image should change to the "ok.png" image. My question is: how can I achieve this? As far as I can tell, the update progress control does not have any events that I can hook into. Also, placing the "ConfirmedStatusImage" inside the ProgressTemplate would not work either, as this only displays

Get visual clues back when using a control template

This something I dropped for a while.  I am attempting to use a control template to get a left and right (sort of jukebox) look.  When I do this all visual clues such as selection are lost.  The XAML for the listbox and the control templates are as follows: <Window x:Class="Window3" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window3" Height="300" Width="513" > <Window.Resources> <Style x:Key="NoButtonBorder" TargetType="{x:Type Button}"> <Setter Property="Template"> <Setter.Value> <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Button}"> <ContentPresenter Margin="{TemplateBinding Padding}" HorizontalAlignment="{TemplateBinding HorizontalContentAlignment}" VerticalAlignment="{TemplateBinding VerticalContentAlignment}" SnapsToDevicePixels="{TemplateBinding SnapsToDevicePixels}" ContentTemplate="{TemplateBinding ContentTemplate}" RecognizesAccessKey="True" Content="{TemplateBinding Con

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

Insert and Edit Pages with Web User Control Template for another table

Hi, I have an Address template(web user control) which holds the fields of the Address table.  The Address template is embedded in the School Insert Page.  I want to insert a new school together with its address(which means I have to insert a record into the address table).  Can you let me know how I can pass the newly generated addressId to update school table?  Also, how can I associate the Address.cs in the App_Code with the Address template?  I want it to be able to scaffold columns which needs to be hidden from user in the address table.  When I click on Insert School, the Address template shows in "insert" mode, I just need to link the two together.

Can't access a control in a listview layout template with codebehind

While running ItemDetabound upon load of a listivew, I am trying to access the text in a label of the LayoutTemplate of a different Listview.  It works fine if I try access the same labels under the same names if they are in the same listview, but not if they are in a different one.  It was working for a while, can't figure out what I changed, but now says that object doesn't exist.   Here is the html code for the labels: <LayoutTemplate> <table ID="Table2" runat="server" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr ID="Tr1" runat="server" style="padding-left: 0px"> <th ID="Th1" runat="server" style="text-align: left; white-space:nowrap; "> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server">Label 1</asp:Label> </th> <th ID="Th2" runat="server" style="white-space:nowrap; width: 150px" >

"max-template-document-size" change not working as expected

Hi There I have a 2 node MOSS 2007 deployment hosting 5 webapps. The one web app I am having a problem with is a customised solution from a 3rd party. The product users need to save sites as templates, to which they get an error saying that the template is too large. I have run the max-template-document-size stsadm command and increased the value from 5mb to 50mb but it seems the change is not taking effect. The error page says the limit is still 5mb. When I use stsadm getproperty it shows that the value has in fact increased. I have made sure that I am doing this on the correct webapp. The save as template operation works if I do not select the "save content" option. The sites have no content so the cannot be greater than 50mb. Am I missing something extremely obvious?
