SP2010: Ribbon: How to use Text Box?

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

Hi there, we're taking advantage of the Issues Tracking lists on a number of project sites using SP2010. I've created a VS2010 solution that adds a new group with a Label and TextBox control and that works great.  Problem is, when my JavaScript CommandUIHandler runs, I have no idea how to access what the user actually typed in to build the URL to the issue ID, and couldn't find documentation on it.

Any ideas?

How to align text to top position on Ribbon buttons?

Hello SharePoint Experts, I have a custom masterpage which is derived from v4.master and it uses the default SP Foundation 2010 Ribbon. As you all know,the default Ribbon buttons such as New Document,Upload Document,Alert Me,etc, have text at the bottom below the icons. Ribbon buttons such as CheckOut,CheckIn,etc have their text aligned to the right of the icons. My requirement is to have all the text on Ribbon groups and buttons aligned to the top such that the image is below the text.(By default it is the other way round). I tried manipulating the CMDUI.XML file located at 14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL but no use. I also tried overriding the Ribbon CSS(from COREV4.CSS) but it was of no use as well. Does anyone have inputs on how to get this done? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.Regards, Gautam Kaikini, MCTS WSS 3.0 Application Development.

Page Layout and Text Layout Buttons Disabled on Ribbon

I am trying to create a publish site in Sharepoint 2010, and I am using the Ribbon control.  Currently, I am having trouble adding and changing content on my site, due to both the Page Layout and Text Layout buttons being disabled.  I have been trying to figure out what security or feature needs to be active to get these enabled again.  Any help would be appreciated.

SP2010: Ribbon: Editing multiple selected items


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,


AutoCompleteStringCollection for text box in DataGridView 2.0

for a TextBox outside of a grid using the AutoCompleteCustomSource. Any
thoughts on how I can add this collection? :)

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.

reference from menubuttons to text parts in article on the same page


Hi, I'm searching now for hours but couldn't find it.Cry

In my menu i have several buttons which (by a <a href..) should go the a part of an article that is in the same form.

Menu button : What is a database should go to the page default.aspx and in there is an article published.
A part of this article is having a piece of text about "what is a database"

Menu button: how to make a query should go to this same article in the same page but then to the part that is have the piece about the query. The next could be an example of what i'm doing:

    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a database</a></li>
    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a query</a></li>

Where my question marks are, there should be a connection to that particular piece of text.
In each article part there is an ID="text1" and the second part id="text2"

How shoudl i do that, Should i use a question mark.
Please give me some guidance how to structure the <li> statement or a pointer where I can read about it.


text editor


 I format lines in a .aspx file (source view) the way I can use them, and if I switch to design view or view in browser or debug, the many lines get reformatted to flow all onto one line.

I can't seem to find the correct setting to keep this from happening.

Any suggestions?


Unique text value in databse column


Hi Everyone!

I know this is probably a very basic question but how do I keep a column's text values unique in SQL server (ie for a unique username)?  The column is not an integer it's varchar(50), and it's not the primary key but I could make it the primary key if recommended.

The front end could handle it;  where the user would enter text, it's validated, then a query is done to see if that username is available.  If so, then user can decide to choose it and an insert is done, if not they pick a new username and process repeats.  With this approach, the responsibility of keeping the value unique solely rests on the front end, nothing on the database side.

Is this the correct way to handle this? 

Thank you!
