SP2010: Ribbon: Editing multiple selected items

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

Hi there, we're using the Issues Tracking lists for a number of projects in SP2010.  I've created a solution that adds a few buttons to the ribbon that allows the user to select a few items, and then click the button to do something that affects all of those items, for example, set the "Assigned To" field to a specific value.  Using the EnabledScript tag for CommandUIHandler for the button, I'm able to disable/enable the button so that it only works if at least one item is used.

Two questions:

1) I've read that it may be better to use a "delegate control" for this instead of using a CommandUIHandler since it's just intended to work on a list and not a site - is that the case (and if so, how is that accomplished?)

2) More importantly, how would I actually post back changes to each item that the user selected?  I was thinking of popping up a model dialog that had an Assigned To People Picker box in it with an OK/Cancel, but I'm not sure what to use to post back changes to each item.

Any help would be appreciated - thanks,

Dex

Dropping and linking multiple items within the same editing scope transaction

  
Hi, I'm using IActivityTemplateFactory.Create to provide a custom experience when the user drops a toolbox item onto my Flowchart designer.  The implementation of IActivityTemplateFactory.Create is to use the model item tree to programmatically create multiple model items (related to activities), and link them together using the appropriate model item properties and connector view state.  All this works fine except for one thing. Say I'm dropping three activities as a result of IActivityTemplateFactory.Create.  I want the first activity to appear at the top, underneath should be the second activity and below that the third activity.  I want all three activity designers to appear alighned around their center point and there to be a straight, centered connection arrow between activity one and two and another straight, centered connection arrow between two and three.  Here's some ASCII art (we'll see how the formatting is retained - not very well it seems): |-----------------| | Activity 1 | | | |-----------------| | | | \/ |--------------| | Activity 2 | |--------------| | | | \/ |----------| |Activity 3| |----------|  It's important to note that the activity designers all not all the same size; both the height and width can vary. I've written code that looks at the various activity

Dropping and linking multiple items within the same editing scope transaction - Part 2

  

Hi,

In an earlier forum post, I asked about how to drop multiple items from the toolbox onto the design surface, have them arranged nicely, and do all this in a single editing transaction.  In that post, Kenny came up with a nice solution.

There's one more scenario that I didn't discuss in the earlier post, that I was hoping to be able to resolve on my own after getting the other post answered.  But, I I'm afraid I need some more help.

The scenario is the same as in the earlier post with one additional complication.  One of the items I'm dropping as part of the drag/drop operation is a FlowSwitch node.  If I did nothing else, the solution presented in the earlier forum post would work.  However, I've an additional need to visually change the appearance of the FlowSwitch designer. Normally, one can change an activity's designer (even a built in activity) by using the metadata store.  However, the FlowSwitch is unique in that the Flowchart designer has hard-coded knowledge of the FlowSwitch designer, and if you replace the built in designer via the metadata store, there are numerous places where the Flowchart designer will generate exceptions and pop up error messages.  I also have the need t

multiple delete selected ListView items

  

Hi All

Thanks.


run workflow against multiple selected items

  

Just wondering why you can only fire a workflow against one item at a time.  I have certain library items I need to run the same workflow against, but I can't select the ones I want and run the workflow.  I have to run it on one item at a time.

I'm sure there's a reason for this, but I'd just like to know what the reason is.


How can I get a list of selected items from a multiple-selection box in Infopath 2007

  
I have an Infopath 2007 form with a multiple-selection box.  The form has a receive data connection to a Sharepoint custom list which shows software available to staff.  The form allows the user to select any number of items from the list of software.  I want to be able to show a summary list and more importantly print a summary of just the items from the list that were selected.  I want to be able to hand my IT person a list of the software that user needs installed.   I am trying to figure out how to get this summary list so it can be printed out.  Any help would be appreciated.

External List - Access Selected Items

  
Hello, The situation;- An external list in SP 2010 from SQL A custom ribbon/button that calls via JS a Dialog box(Application page) and passes the selected items IDs Some code behind to process items after confirmation from user. Question is how to access the selected items in the code behind. As far as I can tell the JS 'getselecteditems' only returns the list ID, which in the case of a standard list is fine, but with an External list returns something like '_B00234' - how do I use this or how to return a more meaningfull ID? (I would rather work in my confort zone VB/C# than JS to process items) casey

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

  
I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Adding, removing or editing the items of combobox.....

  
Hello everyone, I am working on this application which requires Items of the combobox added, edited or removed by the end user in the different section of the application such as settings window or something like that.
