UpdateListItems Webservice is not working on Photo directory in blogsite

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


   I have created a site using the standard blogsite template. By default it contains a picture library named "Photos". I want to create a new folder in this library using the UpdateListItems Webservice. But I am getting an exception saying "The file name you specified could not be used.  It may be the name of an existing file or directory, or you may not have permission to access the file." But there is not file/folder with the name I am specifying. I am using the following query to create the folder



  <Batch PreCalc="TRUE" OnError="Continue" RootFolder="/forexp/Photos">

  <Method ID="1" Cmd="New">

  <Field Name="ID">New</Field> 

  <Field Name="FSObjType">1</Field> 

  <Field Name="FileRef">/blogsite/Photos/TestFolder</Field> 




Please note that I can create the folder using the web interface. I also created a new picture library in the same site and used the same above query to create the folder and I am able to create the folder.

clr assembly in sql server - working directory? and exception question

Hello, I have a small assembly in sql server 2008... it's pretty simple, but in the very rare circumstance that it may throw an exception I am catching it and writting to a log file. something like: using (StreamWriter sr = new StreamWriter(@".\ErrorLog.txt", true)) { sr.WriteLine("{0:G} ===> {1}", DateTime.Now, ex.Message); } I believe that should write the file to the working directory... 1. what would the working directory be for sql server 2008? the binn directory? 2. what would happen if a clr assembly added to sql server throws an exception that is not handled by your clr code?

working with Active Directory groups



I don't know much about active directory groups and programming with AD.  Now I am working on a project which will have 5 to 6 links to otherweb pages and I want to give access to these pages based on the logged in users.

So I am implementing a administration project to give access to these web pages and planned to keep all the application names in one table and all the users in another table. When ever a person or group needs access to a single project, I want to add them through another screen linking users to applications and store it in a table. When user tries opening the web page in the project then it needs to verify the logged in user in the table and display the project if it has a entry for the user with the application.

I am planning to implement some thing like below

Applications Table




Users Table





Link Application to User




When user logs in verify the above table to check if user with the application is available and display the web page required.


To do this I need to store all the employees details in the company from different AD groups into the users

ASP.NET MVC 3 Beta and Virtual Directory with different auth methods not working


An interesting problem arose for me today when I upgraded my root website from ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1 to the new Beta 1.  I am using RavenDB, which needs to run as a virtual sub-application with Windows authentication instead of Forms authentication.  I had raven working like described above just fine in preview 1, but with beta 1, now it won't work.  It looks like no matter what I try, the membership
provider system for my root website is redirecting me back to the login page, even though I've set my RavenDB virtual directory to use
windows authentication and cleared out the membership and roles providers in it's web.config.  I guess MS changed something to do with
either routing or authentication between preview 1 and beta 1.  If anyone else sees this problem and knows how to fix it, I would be in
your debt. 

I would guess that the easiest way to recreate the problem would be to create a new ASP.NET MVC 3 Beta 1 root website, then add a virtual directory marked as an application.  See if you can get the root site to use the forms auth provided by default, but have the virtual directory use windows auth, denying all users but a specific one of your choosing.  I can't seem to get this scenario working in the beta

Set the working/start directory for a Library web part?


Greetings all,

One of our departments has a relatively large library with folders, sub-folders and sub-sub folders. They want to be able to add a web part to one of their pages that displays items only within a sub-sub folder, rather than beginning at the root level of the library.

How might we customize the part so that it starts its display at the sub-sub folder we need?

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Browsing all Images in Directory ... ?! asp.net & C#


Hi every one ... How are you ??

OK ... I want to make album ... I try to make it using buttons( next & pre ) using imageButton control and variable (i)

So ... each next (++i) & pre ( --i) to show allimages in directory ("photo")

Here my code in C#  ::

using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

using System.Xml.Linq;
using System.IO;
using System.Collections.Generic;

namespace iThinkerWebSite
    public partial class photos : System.Web.UI.Page

       // LinkedList<string> names = admin.getNames();
        DirectoryInfo dir;
        FileInfo[] files;
        static int i = -1;
        static int l = 0;

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            dir = new DirectoryInfo(MapPath("photo"));
            files = dir.GetFiles();
            //l = (int)names.LongCount();
            l = files.Length;
            if (l == 0)
                Label2.Text = "No Photo to Display !!";

Row command working on all rows not selected one?



I have this code that hides a column in a gridview.  (The column houses another nested gridview).

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
            If GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False Then
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

The trouble is that if I click the select link on one row that action to hide is carried out on all rows.  How can I set this up so that it only hides the row that is selected?
