Menu items of Welcome control behaves incorrect in non-IE browsers.

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

We are using wss 3.0 sp2

I am referring to the welcome control that is part of standard sharepoint pages. This is the in the masterpage. The welcome contrrol has options such as 'sign-in as different user' , 'signout' and so on. When user takes the mouse and tries to click on the sub-menu it doesn't work as if the menu item is not getting focussed (however up/down arrow with keyboard works fine). 

I know that sharepoint sites are not best when viewed with firefox, safari, chrome etc  but is there a fix for this? Is it do with 'z' index setting or something? Can this be fixed through javascript?  

Please share your views/solution.

Adding new items to a Repeater control with transitions?



I am currently in the process of writing a facebook type 'activity feed' for a site. Currently I am binding the last 10 items to a repeater control, which contains a usercontrol representing each item. This works fine but there are a couple of requiremnts that are giving me problems and wondered if the the good people of the forum could make some suggestions.

The requirement is that when a user clicks a refresh button any new events are added to the top of the list, the previous items drop down and the equivalent number of old items drop off the bottom, all with nice slider transitions.

I have put the repeater inside of an update control and are able to handle the transitions by using RegisterStartup script to drop jquery calls onto the page for the slider. However I cannot find a way to dynamically add or remove new datarows to the repeater. I need the old items to stay in the repeater and be pushed down by the new items, so completely refreshing the datasource seems like a bad idea.

I was thinking about maybe storing the datasource in the viewstate and adding rows to that, maybe with an extra column on the end which stores what transition is needed on the databind for my jquery, but there will be a 'View more items' link at the bottom of the page, so I am worried that the list could get pretty large and there

Dynamic menu control


Dear all,

I want to get the names of some folders in my drive and populate my menu control with the names of those folders.

Getting the folder names is not the issue, but how can i populate my menu with the names of getted foldernames.

I tried this:

DirectoryInfo dirInfo = new DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("~\\MyFolders\\"));
DirectoryInfo[] dirs = dirInfo.GetDirectories();
Menu1.DataSource = dirs;

But im getting the error:

HierarchicalDataBoundControl only accepts data sources that implement IHierarchicalDataSource or IHierarchicalEnumerable.


How can i achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

How to Make CSS for Hyperlinks NOT Affect Menu Items


VWD 2008 Express.

I have the following CSS in my DefaultStyleSheet.css file.  I want this to only apply to text hyperlinks (like links to web sites or email addresses) but NOT to my asp:menu items.  I am finding that although I have defined my asp:menu items in the menu properties, the colors in the text in the menu tabs get overridden by the CSS below.  How can I make this not happen?  Thanks for any help.


{color:#6F928B; text-decoration: none}

Login control is suddenly broken in IE7 but works perfectly on Firefox (It works on both browsers lo


Hey Guys,

 I'm new around and I thought this is probably the best place to help me solve my dilemma, I am developing a website for almost a year now and the login control was implemented a logn time ago, however all of a sudden it will not authenticate on Internet Explorer 7 when the application is published, it doesn't even provide a message that authentication was unseccssful or throws any error, it just refreshes the same page. however this problem doesn't occure when I try the same website on FireFox 2.0...Also when I run the page locally on Cassini it work great on both browsers...This is one of the weirdest errors I have ever faced. what could have gone wrong on the server side to cause this? knowing nothing changed on the server-side...I'll provide a snapshot of the login control below

<asp:Login ID="LoginControl" runat="server" BackColor="Trans

Menu control rendering issue with IE8



Using VS2010, I created an ASP.NET 4.0 web application and simply added a couple of menu items below the "Home" menu item in the master page that's created by the project wizard. I made no other changes - no code, no stylesheet changes.

If I run the app locally then everything is fine. I suspect because the local IIS is responsive enough for the problem not to occur.

If I deploy the app to a web host (discountasp.net) then I see the menu render vertically for less than a second before it renders correctly. If I refresh the page a few times then usually I can see the menu vertical flash but sometimes I can't, so there's some sort of timing consideration.

I'm using IE8. The problem doesn't seem to occur with either Firefox 3 or Chrome.

Have others seen this problem?

Any suggestions for a fix?

I can supply the zipped up project if anyone wants it.

Menu with Static and Dynamic Menu Items

I need to populate a menu with static and dynamic (at runtime) menu items.  I know this issue has been posted before, but I haven't seen anything with a date newer than 2009. This is what I want to do: <Menu> <Menu.ItemsSource>                     <CompositeCollection>                      <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 1" /> <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 2" /> <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 3" />                         <CollectionContainer Collection="{Binding MyMenuItems}" />                     </CompositeCollection> </Menu.ItemsSource> </Menu>   The posts every where say the issue is that CompositeCollection is not freezable.  Regardless of that arguement, has anyone come up with a good solution.  I don't want to create it all in code behind because it is a decent size menu with separators, etc.  This seems like something that should have been fixed or have a decent work round by now.   Thanks. 

The OTHER Menu control issue...

Ok, everyone knows that the z-index is messed up in IE8 and that requires patches or workarounds...What I can't seem to find a solution to is the white background on the DynamicMenu parts of a Menu control.  Setting the background color to transparent or not setting it all doesn't seem to have any effect.  This is only a problem in IE8, Firefox 3.6.8 renders the dynamic menus without the white background.

Customize SharePoint Library Menu Items

Hi, In a library with file, the menu items available for any file is: View Properties, Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Send To, Check Out, Workflows, Alert Me . Now, I want to get rid of Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Check Out . Added to this is the need to remove the option in the Actions menu that states "Open With Windows Explorer " and finally the "Upload " menu is to go out. Any JScript for this or a file I need to edit to get this result? I need this because the business wants it out, its bordering on security. ThanksYou've only got one life; help as many people as you can, and enjoy it while it lasts.
