"This control is currently disabled..." Most Library-->Documents ribbon actions are greyed

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

This started when I just needed to delete a document, I noticed most of the actions on the ribbon for Library-->Documents were greyed out.  The only thing that is not greyed is Upload document.  I have tried with multiple administrator accounts, installed office client on the server, I have tried from multiple clients and get the same thing.  Windows 7 and Office 2010 are on the clients I have tried.

Is it possible I may have missed an explicit permission that even an administrator account (domain admin + SP site collaction/farm admin) does not have?

Document viewer on a documents Library & Tooltip Bubble on rollover

Hi everybody,
1 - I would like to know, if in Sharepoint 2007 ECM part (Documents Library), there's a downloadable webpart or an application to create a document viewer (pdf, doc, xls, msg...) in an iframe when you point the mousse over a document or something like that...
If it doesn't exist do you have in mind a code sample which can make something like that ? thank you.

2 - It's possible in a documents library to activate balloon tooltips which show us metas of the document (on mousse over), like an option or an application...

Thank you very much.
All the best.
Go I.T.

Custom actions and URL tokens when working with the Ribbon

I'm trying to add a new item to the Ribbon using a custom action in a VS SP2010 project. The new action shows up where we want it but the problem we are facing is that tokens like {ItemId} or {SelectedItemId} are not parsed when used in the CommandAction attribute. I would like to use these tokens and construct a URL pointing to an application page we've created. In the same way one can do using UrlAction when adding custom actions to the ECB menu (this is working fine in our project). The custom action below simply prints out different tokens. When run it seems like the tokens {SiteUrl},{SelectedListId} and {SelectedItemId}are parsed but for me both SelectedListId and SelectedItemId are null. Are there any other tokens that can be user or is there a better way to get hold of the item and list for the context? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"> <CustomAction Id="{1f2da003-2069-4d4a-8fc5-1deeb98ecdda}" Location="CommandUI.Ribbon" Sequence="20"> <CommandUIExtension> <CommandUIDefinitions> <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.ListForm.Display.Manage.Controls._children"> <Button Id="{ca157255-5ef3-4f1c-bcb6-6ff5ff7610fe}" Command="{7887e42e-

New / Upload / Actions / Settings / View menus on a document library are hidden

I have a Document library. On the View Page (All Documents) for the Document library, I do not see the menu bar with the "New / Upload / Actions / Settings / View" menus. It looks like one of the users with owner permissions did something to cause this behavior. No custom code exists on the page. I am not sure how this menu bar can be hidden. Can someone please clarify. I am a site collection administrator.

Not all documents show up in library

Hi, I set up a document library in a new subsite.  Using SP2010 RTM, SQL 2008,  on Server 2008. Created 6 site members and 3 site owners.  Library is using Major versions, everyone can see all documents. Set the library up using Enterprise metadata as a required field and enterprise search terms not required. Tested uploading a document or two and all seemed ok.  Opened the library to the users so they could upload documents for the project. After two weeks there are 27 documents in the library but I only see 3.  Another user, a Member, sees 6.  Most of these document have the Check-out icon.  To see all documents I must go into Library settings and "Manage documents with no checked-in version".  When I try to take control sometimes I can and then check-in the document but other times there is a warning about "duplicate values in meta-data field".  The Meta-data field allows only one value not multiples according to library settings. I would rather not take control and check-in all documents as that creates teh first version and loses the author. Has anyone else seen this behavior? Why are documents checked-out when uploaded by users? Why can't users see all documents in library whether they are checked-out or not? Thanks folks for your time.

Sharepoint 2007 - 80GB Documents in 1 document library

Hi, My customer wants 'customer docs' in SharePoint. It is now stored on several disks and wants to move it to SharePoint 2007(!). It needs to go into a folder structure.....I'm now investigating the information that needs to move to SharePoint and it turns out a quick scan resulted in 210.000 documents with a total volume of 80GB. Off course this is raw data and thus containing archives, zips, access databases and a lost movie and the like (just like any normal network drive :-)). When I look at the limits and best practices: no folder should contain more then 2.000 items (OK) no doc lib should contain more then 2.000.000 items (more then OK) no file should be larger then 2GB (OK - we set it to a max of 150MB) It is all fine but my concern is the shear size of the total load. Let's say they don't migrate 80GB but 30-50GB. My Question: can a single MOSS 2007 document library hold this kind of documents and total size? What does this mean for overall performance, backup, search indexing, crawling etc etc?  Thnx for any tips!

Listing documents in Folders and subfolders in a Dataview of Document Library

My dataview is pointed to a Document Library. I noitced files in folders and subfolders don't list - only the folders themselves.  Is there any way to list files in a particular folder or all files in all folders? What I'm trying to do is tie a folder to entries in a custom list. I'd like a folder for every ID in that custom list. When I open the Dispform for the ID, I'd like a dataview or some other webpart to dynamically to show related files (all which would ofcourse just be in their respective folder). I'm thinking it's just a matter of passing the ID querystring to a condition in the Dataview or Webpart. It would also have to be a folder as I need to allow same file names to be uploaded.   Thanks.  

Adding Custom Actions to Ribbon UI in InfoPath forms

Hi experts, - I have a custom List in my site. - I have modified the default SharePoint List forms (DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx and NewForm.aspx) using InfoPath 2010, changes being related to the layout of input controls. - Then I wish to add a custom action (a print button - for printing based on modified layout) in the Ribbon Control of these InfoPath modified forms (i.e. displayifs.aspx, editifs.aspx, newifs.aspx). - I am doing the following http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2010/02/19/adding-custom-actions-to-the-ribbon-ui-in-sharepoint-2010-using-sharepoint-designer-2010/ but i guess, it only forms for the SharePoint List forms and not the Infopath modified forms. Any suggestions on how to add a custom action of 'Print' on the Ribbon UI of the list forms. Is there any other better approach? Kindly advise. -Pallz.
