Find Control inside a View of Multiview using Javascript (document.getElementById)



i am using the multiview control inside a page and i am trying to find a control using the javascript function document.getElementById. My Problem is that the function returns null cause it cannot find the control. When i open the code of the page from the browser the active view is not rendered so I think thats the reason why I am getting a null value from the function. 

On the HTML code is rendered only the first view or the view that is activated on page load.

Is there any way to find a control inside the view using javascript? or I am doing something wrong?

Thanks a lot.

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

How to find the content height of the Flow document?

Hi Dudes, I have a RichTextBox control in my application. When the user types the content inside the RichTextBox and clicks ok i need to validate such that the content that the user entered should not overflow the controls Height. So i need to find the height of the FlowDocument property of the RichTextBox Control. I dont have an option to find the height found one way from surfing around        double GetDocumentHeight()         {             Rect rectStart = Document.ContentStart.GetCharacterRect(LogicalDirection.Forward);             Rect rectEnd = Document.ContentEnd.GetCharacterRect(LogicalDirection.Forward);             if (!Double.IsInfinity(rectEnd.Bottom) && !Double.IsInfinity(rectStart.Top))             {                 return rectEnd.Bottom - rectStart.Top;             }             else             {        

document.getElementById is null

Background I have a Firefox browser with many tabs opened. One of the tabs is displaying a website having data I want to scrape from. I want to take certain data values, compile statistics, and redisplay the information in a newly created popup. The other tabs are unimportant but it would be nice if I could work in others while I am gathering my data (focus moved away from the data window). When focus is on the tab with data, I execute an extension I am building from the tools menu. This starts my output popup window. At the bottom of the popup I have timer START and STOP buttons. When I push the START button, a timer starts controlling a periodic page scrape every few seconds. This webpage with the data is updated in real time via innerHTML which is why I need a timer to scrape the values every few seconds. CurrentlyAnyway, I can locate the window tab that has my data in javascrip.(not sure if this is pertinent or not.) I am confused though how JS knows what tab I am interested in to scrape my data from. I have tried using variants of document.getElementById() but no matter what I do the return is "null". Does somebody know enough to assist? I have taught myself how to do all this in a month so I am nubie all the way. Thanks !Additional Info I have tried the following and all give null returns. var x=window.opener.document.getElementById('active').innerHTML; var x=

Whats the difference between standalone and Farm-Standalone

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.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.

What is the difference between "dynamic" and "object" keywords?

Let's take a quick look at the object keyword first. I'm not going to talk a lot about it because it's been around since C# 1.0. This keyword is nothing more than a shortcut for System.Object, which is the root type in the C# class hierarchy. (However, as Eric Lippert pointed out in his blog post, not everything in C# derives from object.) This is a powerful mechanism, since you can assign almost any value to instances of this type.

SharePoint Document Workspaces for Developers

Office 2003 is being released this month, and a cast of supporting applications is already available. One of these is Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, the free team add-on for Windows Server 2003. If you're not familiar with SharePoint Services basics, take a look at What Developers Need to Know About Windows SharePoint Services. In this article, I'm going to drill into one key place where SharePoint and Office 2003 overlap: document workspaces
