How to write an event to manage permissions on a document while uploading, depending on custom field

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


I am trying to find a solution to manage permissions on a document, while uploading it into a document library. This event has to be fired if a custom field is populated (it's a check box field).

How to write an event for this, i tried writing ItemAdded event, but this is getting fired as soon as a document is uploaded, before coming to the page, where we populate all the fields and hit check in.

can i capture Check-in event.

Please advise.

Creating a custom drop down field type with SelectedIndexChanged Event

Hi All, I am trying to create a custom drop down field type and I was able to acheive that using the MS link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb861799.aspx. As per the link, once the custom field is created we can override the "Validate" method to write the Validation logic and that works fine for me too. However I am facing a challenge even before going to Validate . Let me explain my actual requirements here. I need to build a custom drop down field and expose the field to the user in "Edit Properties " Page of a document library. Along with this field, I will be having some OOB site columns in the Edit Properties Page (Ex: Title, Subject etc)  . When user selects a value in the drop down, I need to hide/show few OOB site columns based on certain criteria.  I am facing a challenge of how to capture the "SelectedIndexChanged " event for the Custom drop down field in Sharepoint (Can we wire the SelectedIndexChanged event to a custom dropdown field type) ? Is this acheivable in SP 2010 Custom field type ? If so, how can I do it ? Can any of you kindly help me here?   Regards, Yesh

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

Custom Choice Field in Document Information Panel


Hello Everybody,

I have created a custom field from SPFieldChoice. My requirement was to customize this custom field in such a way that the dropdown can show items from a specified list.This column type I created specifically for a document library meta data.

I tried to add items to the Choices collection (within the constructor). It seems working fine as I can see the dropdown populated perfectly while uploading documents. But at the same time in the Document Information Panel of the MS WORD, it is not showing properly. What happening is, the dropdown values are not "dynamic". Even if I change the values in my list, the doropdown within the DIP stays same.

Mean time, on the document upload page, it is showing dynamically.

if I remove the column and re-add, it populates again with that instantaneous list items, but remains static afterwards on the DIP.

Adjust document permission based on custom property-field (owner person or group)


I would like to setup a workflow so everytime a user adds a new document to a document library the workflow adjusts the documents permissions.

I've added a new field to the document library settings which I called "Owner". This field searches persons or groups in the active directory. The person of group that I fill in here has to get contribute-permissions for this document. This process needs to be automatic so I think I have to build a workflow.

Who has got experience with this? Who can help me? Can I do this with the Sharepoint Designer?

The system we use is a sharepoint server WSS3.0

Large document libraries with a custom user interface


We recently migrated our document management system to SharePoint (WSS 3.0) and I adapted my VB6 client application to search for and retrieve a list of documents from this new SharePoint library using the Lists web service. Although the total number of documents in this library is 90,000 at one site and over 145,000 at another, my VB6 application never retrieves more than 600-700 documents at a time. From reading white papers such as "Working with Large Lists in Office SharePoint Server 2007" (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95450&clcid=0x409), it appears that if my custom user interface limits the number of items returned in a search of these large lists, that it may not be necessary to put these documents into folders. However, our current scanning software, KnowledgeLake Capture, by default places newly scanned documents into folders based on the year, month, day and hour, which means that these documents are placed in nested folders 4 levels deep.

There are also some 20 metadata fields on these document libraries that allow us to filter these document libraries so that search results will in most cases be limited to a few hundred items.

We acquired new servers (Windows Server 2008 with SQL Server 2008) to host our SharePoint libraries and we are running WSS 3.0 S

Custom Field Control


I would like to know how can we build a custom field control in sharepoint. Following is the scenario i am looking into it:
