workflow and "child" records events ?




In a project, I have two lists that are linked together with a lookup column (it's not the actual scenario, but I simplify it) :

* a parent list, that defines some fields and especially a state field that will follow the life of the object (created, open and archived)

* a children list, that also defines some fields including a lookup field to the parent list and a similar state field for its own lifecycle (created, open and archived)


the life cycle of both kind of objects are linked together. For example, when the parent is opened, all children must be opened too (looks like easy because it's a workflow action from parent, and finding children is simply an activity of the workflow).

Another requirement is to archive the parent when all children are archived.

What is the best approach ?

In the parent life cycle workflow, can I monitor children events (I don't think so :() ?

I can cheat a bit by adding an hidden field "all children archived" in the parent, and set this to true from a child workflow or event. I'm not at ease with this solution as it's not a proper way. Anything else I may dive ?



Any idea, advice, tip, encouragement?

Accessing controls / events on a master page from child page

I have a problem i am trying to work out the best method with my limited skills. Im using vb.net ( VS 2010  ) I am using a dll for an IFrame , which is call from code behind.  On my site I havea masterpage which has two gridviews. ( GrdViewWebBureau is the one i am using for this  query)  GrdViewWebBureau is contained within an update panel and updated on a timer control trigger. GrdViewWebBureau updates the page with file counts and status from our clients. I can click on any one of the cells and the code behind is fired. What I am trying to do is put an IFrame on the master page and every time a user clicks on the grid, the Iframe is fired up.  I have tested the iframe and vb code behind from a dummy page and it works, however when the Iframe is on the master page it doeant work.  What I am tryingh to achieve is that no matter what page a user is on the site, they will be able to click on the GrdViewWebBureau and the iframe will fire with the correct childpage. Each webPage may also have an Iframe as well, so i dont know if it is possible to make the IFrame global and just call that control ??  I have no idea if 1 this is possible with the code i have and 2, if i have the brains to understand the who what why and when. Please can you look at my code and pass anyt suggestions / help /  solutions. Master Pa

Deactivate and activate the workflows associated with the lists which are inherited from a particula


Hi All,

I have a requirement like i need to provide an UI to the user where in he will add a new site column with some default value.Once the site column is added i need to refer that to a specific content type.Once the reference is done,i need to update the child content like lists who included this content type.

before doing that i need to deactivate the workflows as the content type.update implicitly updates the childs like Lists which in turn triggers workflows associated on item updated event.i donot want that.So i need to deactivate the workflows first,update the content type and then activate it again.

WCF Tutorial - Events and Callbacks

we described how to make a very simple client/server application where clients would call functions on the server through a shared interface. In this tutorial, I'm going to expand that application to allow the server to execute functions on the client by using callbacks. Essentially, this is WCF's mechanism to allow events to be raised from the server to it's connected clients.

Delegates and events in c#.net

People often find it difficult to see the difference between events and delegates. C# doesn't help matters by allowing you to declare field-like events which are automatically backed by a delegate variable of the same name. This article aims to clarify the matter for you. Another source of confusion is the overloading of the term "delegate". Sometimes it is used to mean a delegate type, and at other times it can be used to mean an instance of a delegate type. I'll use "delegate type" and "delegate instance" to distinguish between them, and "delegate" when talking about the whole topic in a general sense.
