How to Add Drop-down to Home item on Top Nav?

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

Hello there.  My company is using SharePoint 2010 Standard, and the way our site collection is structured, I need to be able to show a drop down of the child sites directly under the site collection itself, for the "Home" (root of site collection) item.  While I can show drop-downs for sub-sites easily enough (check show sub-sites), this doesn't seem to have an effect when applied to the "Home" item on the menu.  Any advice about how to add this functionality would be greatly appreciated.

Not able to drop Picked ToolBox Item on ToolEditor Window.


We have a editor designer on a tool window. We have used a WPF usercontrol to contain this designer.
This usercontrol has child control WinformHost which hosts my designer surface which in our case is a Winform Usercontrol.

In short

(Tool window---> WPF User Control---> WinfromHost---> DesignerSurface)

Now we have Implemented IVsTooBoxUser interface that supports Itempicked and isSupported method.
We are able to pick that item from ToolBox and drag on ToolBox up to the Boundary. But when we enter with that item in
Editor Tool Window we are not able to drop that item at our editor tool Window. Cursur changes to No Drop state.

Above implementation is done using VS 2010 in integrated enviroment.

Please suggest any soultion to drop that picked item on the editor tool window.

Thanks in advance




The Quick Launch item for the Wiki is no longer bringing up the Home.aspx page


I created a new Wiki Page Library a couple of days ago called "Team Wiki". After playing around with the wiki pages a bit. The default Quick Launch item for the wiki was called "Team Wiki" on the left navigation bar in the default theme. The link when I hover over the "Team Wiki" text points to ".../Team%20Wiki/" which it always has. However, when I click the link it takes me to the URL ".../Team%20Wiki/Forms/AllPages.aspx" instead of the URL ".../Team%20Wiki/Home.aspx" which it used to by default a couple of days ago. Is there any way for me to get my default Quick Launch item to point back to the URL ".../Team%20Wiki/Home.aspx"? The default Home.aspx page is still in the same location as the How%20To%20Use%20This%20Wiki%20Site.aspx page is.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Why isn't my Views/Home/Home.Master file published when I publish my website?


Hi All,

I spent the better part of today hunting down an elusive error.  I was getting a message saying that it couldn't find the Index view for the Home controller, and it gave a list of locations it searched, e.g., ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx.  This was really confusing as the file definitely existing and was at ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx, the first place in the list of locations it searched for the view!

What I eventually discovered was that there was a file that did not get published when I used Visual Studio's "Publish" feature (this is on the "Build" menu).  That file was Views/Home/Home.master, and (as you can probably guess) is the master file used by Views/Home/Index.aspx.

Once I copied that file into place manually, it started working.  But I am left wondering--why???  Why does this file not get published?  It's a part of my project, I can see it in the solution explorer, and it's obviously a critical file that's necessary for the MVC app to run.  It has the same permissions as every other file in my project.  So why wouldn't it get copied?  And how can I fix it so it does get copied?

Thanks for any suggestions on this!


Missing 'new item templates'


 Hi all,

          I am a 'newbie' to VWD and I am slowly working through the Basic Walkthrough Help files, and learning plenty along the way.

However, when I tried to create a new database in the LINQ control walkthrough I found that the option to create a new database is missing, and further investigation has found that many other new item templates are missing.

I am using a brand new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate and have enabled IIS and .NET from Control Panel-Programs-Turn Windows Features On-Off. I used the WPI to install all basic elements eg. IIS Components, SQL Server Express.

The only 'new item templates' I have when I right-click the App_Data Folder and choose 'new item' are:-

ADO.NET Data Service

AJAX Enabled WCF Service

Dynamic Data Field

SQL Server Database

Text File

XML File

Does anyone know where I have gone wrong.

LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out. 



    protected void enterBTN_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //make new data context

        SHCDataContext insNewAll = new SHCDataContext();
        //LINQ to check if customer exists in database
        var checkExisting = from c in insNewAll.Customers
                            where c.custLastName.Contains(custLastNameTB.Text.ToString())
                            select c.custLastName;
        //make list to store values

How to keep the hover for Parent menu and set the selected menu item css for child menu item?



I'm using cssfriendly control adapter for menu. My asp.net menu control's datasource is a sitemap file I'm using which contains all the urls.

Drop-Right/Left submenus


 I'm currently using the CurvedMenuProjects custom control and I does almost everything I need a Menu Control to do but it doesn't swap submenu position (left/right) when the dropdown goes off the right edge of the screen.


Does anybody know if it's possible to configure the control to do this?


Any pointers on how I can get started writing the behavior into the custom control myself?
