Modify 'SearchTable' area in BDC XSLT

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

Quite simply - no matter what changes I make to the XSL in the 'SearchTable' area of the BDC web part, nothing is affected on the page. I can put anything I want outside of this section - but in this section all my tweaks are just ignored! For instance, I want to hide some of the search criteria boxes (as there is only one search column in my data) and also hide the 'is equal to' box as there is only one option. I want a small title saying 'Search...' and the search box and that's it, but instead I get the same stuff rendered no matter the XSL.

Is there any reason I can't modify this? My XSL changes are not being overwritten - they are just being ignored - if I edit the XSL after I've saved it still contains my changes...

I'm about to rip my hair out over this SharePoint thing - it's great when it works, but you can literally spend a lifetime trying to get it working...

How can I modify a dataview to restrict the width and height of an XSLT value that is mapped to enha


Actually, A customer has requested to restrict the width and height of images that are added to an enhanced rich text list column, so I tried to solve the issue with css, but it didn't work.


I have the following situation:

How to modify the login control



I'd like to record more information than the default control allows as well as perform actions with the input when the form is submitted but I'm having trouble figuring out how.

So firstly, if I want to record the middlename for example, how would I do that, and by default, where would it go if anywhere?
When the form is submitted, I'd like to take specific input, such as just the middlename for example, and write some linq to sql code to specify when and how it's stored.
In what event would I put this code?

XSLT: Simplify Development and Maintenance of Microsoft .NET Projects with Code Generation Technique


Code generation techniques using technologies such as XSLT are playing an increasingly important part in software projects as they support the development of a rapidly maintainable code base. This article discusses some of the benefits and possible applications of code generation.To demonstrate these techniques the author develops a Web Forms application that supports the maintenance of records in a SQL Server database, using the database's own metadata to drive the generation process. The SQL Server database schema is extracted using SQLXML 3.0 data access and processed through XSLT stylesheets that generate both a database access layer and a Web Forms user interface with query and update pages.
