Browse Button is disabled

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

I have created a BDC using Application Definition Editor. The connectivity with the Oracle database worked well when setting it up. I was also able to successfully create the BDC Column

But when I try to add a new record, the Browse Button next to Check Names is disabled. What could be the issue?



Below is the ADF XML. Hope it can help locate a clue

Posting back a disabled button


Folks, I have a control which inherits from LinkButton and I'm trying to make sure that the user cannot cause mayhem by performing multiple postbacks.  That seemed an easy enough challenge, so I have this code [snippet] on the client:

ButtonClicked: function () {
    if (this._DisableOnClick == true) {
        this.get_element().disabled = 1;
        this.get_element().style.cursor = 'wait';
    else {
        alert('Posting back');

The alert is of course only there for debugging.  If the DisableOnClick value is false, then I see the "Posting Back" alert and, when I click ok, the postback occurs - all good.

If the DisableOnClick value is true, then the "button" gets disabled and the cursor turns into an hourglass - again good.  But the postback doesn't happen - not good.  I assume that the ASP client code is trying to help by preventing the postback when it sees that the link is disabled.

So, how can I either:

  • Persuade the LinkButton to postback even though it has just been disabled; or
  • [probably better] Get my client code to execute immediately after the postback code rather than before.

Save as template button is disabled



I want to save a site as template so I can create a new site based on this template.
In SP2007 this was easy by opening site settings > site actions > save as template
In SP2010 this link is missing, and in SharePoint Designer the button in the ribbon is greyed out.

All of the sites in SharePoint show this behavior, I cannot save any of my sites as template (the link is not there in SharePoint, and in SPD the button is disabled).
Do I need to enable some feature in SP2010 first in order to use this functionality ?

Hyperlink button with file browse on infopath



We need to have a button on our Infopath Web Form that will prompt the user to browse for a file and this would add a link to the selected document.

We don't want to attach a file since the file is already someware on the Sharepoint site. The "Insert Hyperlink" control is out of the question, we don't want users to cut and paste the URL. We can't refer to a list to create a dropdown of the files since it can be on several lists.

I don't mind doing code behind, custom controls, rules or anything that can acheive this. I already have plenty of coding in the form anyway.

Thanks for any help.

Problem with Dynamic Button


Hi friends,

I am trying to make a page inspired from http://login.qlikview.com/help.aspx

here I have made a dropdownlist and on clicking I am able to dynamically add the textboxes and radio buttons using placeholders. My problem is I am not able to use a dynamic number of submit buttons. In the page (link above) I need to make the submit button available for two choices and invisible for one.  But the option dynamicbutton is not available alike dynamicTextboxes etc. What could I do? Is there any other way I could figure out to implement this.

Thanking you in advance,
