I've a problem with my Visual Studio.
On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.
using EF3.5sp1 for a project, and I've been working around many of its
problems... as such, my entity partial classes have a lot of logic in
them for change-tracking and whatnot. Obviously, I'd like to factor
this logic out into a common base class,
but of course all my objects must derive from EntityObject. Is it
possible to tell them to derive from some class of my own invention
(which would actually likely derive from EntityObject themselves)?
I'd rather avoid editing the EDMX file unless the changes will be
safe on entity-model-update, since I'm still making changes to the
database schema in this early state of my project.
Also, is there any good workaround for the fact that the change isn't tracked when you change EntityReference.EntityKey?
In some of my past columns on service orientation and contract-first development, I've mentioned the new suite of designers, formerly codenamed "Whitehorse," that are part of Visual StudioÃÂ® Team edition for Software Architects Team System.

Windows Forms 2.0 components expose smart tags by utilizing Designer Actions. By taking advantage of this feature, you can add smart tags to your own custom components to make setting their properties and other actions much easier and developer-friendly.

The design-time architecture of Windows Forms in the .NET Framework has made development much more flexible than it had been with MFC. With Windows Forms, you can drag one of your custom controls from the toolbox and drop it onto the Visual Studio design surface and even though Windows Forms knows nothing about the control, it's able to host it and let you manipulate its properties-not possible in MFC. In this article, the author discusses what's going on under the covers as you design your forms and then walks through the creation of a bare-bones forms designer.

Because the value of good software planning and design should never be underestimated, it can be beneficial to use one of the many existing design patterns as a foundation for solving some of your toughest architecture problems. This article describes several traditional design patterns including the Observer pattern and the Dispatcher pattern, elaborates on their structures, what they're used for, and how they can help you build a BizTalk-based solution. Following this is a discussion on using the BizTalk Orchestration Designer to build designs and integrate existing business processes.

I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".
I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in
the To field.
I have a document content type and a library which contains this content type. here is what I want to do:
- when user creates a new document in this library, he will enter some user names with people picker and then a message including some columns of the content type will be sent to that users. And then, at a certain
date (lets say 1 day before a date that is one of the site columns) another email, a reminder will be sent.
I havent been able to find :
1- how can I replace a people picker field on workflow initiation form and how can I make it sent email to the user.
2- How can I make it sent a reminder email 1 day before the date that is stored in one of the columns of the content type(current item)
any help would be welcome,
i created a dataview for a user table to insert new records. now i have to use a dropdown list that get data from another table. to insert in my user table. in the user table only the code is stored. but i need to get that code description that is in another
table in my dropdownlist to choose from in my dataview.
how can i do this in sharepiont designer2007?
I am modifying a SharePoint site and so far so good. Some of the objects were created using Visual Studio 2008 (C#). I was able to modify these objects and implement them on the targete machine without issue. The final step is to implement
the ASPX pages that were modified using SharePoint Designer 2007. These are aspx pages that are used to modify items in lists. All the pages involved in this upgrade are customized. I need to upgrade the target site with the modified version
of these pages. My intent is to copy the code from the page in the source site and past it into the same page on the target site. I tried using the Remote Web Site connection tool in SharePoint Designer 2007 but received the following error message:
"Unable to open 'https://(site address)'. Server Error: Could not find a Web server at 'website'. Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly. If you are sure that everything
is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service."
I am not sure how to first check to see if the Web Server is temporarily out of service. I would appreciate your input on how to verify this.
Background information of target machine: WinServer 2008, IIS 7, Sharepoint (MOSS2007), site on port 80
Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.
It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).
Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they
I also tried the solutions listed here:
But they don't fix the problem.
So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.
I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007
Data View they have added two more requirements.
1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place. This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements
I have it must remain to be just one list.
2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.
The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.
I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?
I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.
So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/ or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png
I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh
I am not a programmer, nor do I know any coding languages. I have a slightly above average understanding of how writing code works, so please keep that in mind when responding....
I am using a list in SharePoint; when the list is updated, I want to display "UPDATED w/ Date and Time". I cannot figure out how to display the Local Afghanistan time vice UTC or Zulu time. I am trying to figure out what to add in to change
the time displayed +4:30 hours. I am currently using the following code in XSLT with SharePoint Designer:
<xsl:if test="ddwrt:FormatDate(string(@Modified), number(1033), 1)=ddwrt:FormatDate(ddwrt:TodayIso(), number(1033), 1)">
<xsl:if test="ddwrt:FormatDate(string(@Modified), number(1033), 1)!=ddwrt:FormatDate(string(@Created), number(1033), 1)">
<Span style="background-color:maroon;color:white">UPDATED <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="no" select="@Modified" /></span>
