Facebook style groups - Help to get going

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hello! I am working on a school with different IT-projects, and am currently working with Sharepoint 2010. Previously we ran MOSS 2007, but nobody used it so we stopped using it. Now however we've got Sharepoint 2010 up and running, and i've been talking with some teachers about how they would like to work. One thing that seems to be important is groups. The teachers wants to be able to create workgroups, and assign students to these. Then the students can work with documents, discussions and such stuff within that group. (Pretty much like a facebook group).

I had an idea how to do it, so i started designing in SPD, but i realised that my solution probably wasnt very good (One customized group-page that presented only the information from lists with the same group-id in the list as the groups id). What's the best way to do this?

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers in asp.net

The RadioButtonList. Very handy for inviting users to select just one item from a list although because of the screen real estate it takes up, used less and less in favour of the DropDownList. In plain HTML, the browser knows to enforce the unique selected value amongst a list of radio buttons because they all have the same value for their name attributes.

A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.

MS Word style comments in asp.net



I need to create a system, that will be similar to ms word style comments. So the idea is the following: on the page there are a pack of text boxes labels and so on, and user need have the way to comment each control, and save commented text, for example to DB, so the others can reed comments too.

I tried PopUpControlExtender, but it works in single way, and i cannot view all the popups in one time. Or may be i missed something and there is a way to popup all the controls at one time? 

Therefore, are there any known solutions for a discribed task, based on PopUpControlExtender or something else?

LDAP nested groups filter


Hi all,

In my organization we use nested groups.

For a particular usage, we have a group (let's assume that the group name "kuku"), and the names of all the nested groups under it contains "kuku" as well.

We may assume that no other group in the LDAP has "kuku" in the name.

I need to create a filter which will return all the users which belong to one of the "kuku"s group.

Obviously, using this filter will bring only the head kukus

(&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=kuku,cn=.rest of the group DN.))

How can I use wild card to fetch all users which belong to any kuku?

For example: (&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=.*kuku.*))

DataGrid: Tailor Your DataGrid Apps Using Table Style and Custom Column Style Objects


One of the most enduring challenges in writing user interfaces is figuring out how to display large amounts of data efficiently and intuitively without bewildering the user. The problem becomes particularly thorny when the interface must reflect hierarchical relationships within the data that the user needs to modify. The Windows Forms DataGrid control gives developers a powerful and flexible tool to meet this challenge. This article explains its basic operations and shows how to extend the DataGrid to display columns of data in an application-appropriate manner.

ASP.NET 4.0 Menu Top Level selected item style


I want to apply a css class to the level 1 menu item (parent) when it or any or it's children are selected.

I've looked at MSDN documentation and any number of examples and walkthroughs but I haven't come up with a way of managing this. I was thinking something like this might work but the style is not being applied to the parent. To further complicate matters, if I try to apply a css style to StaticSelectedStyle it doesn't pick it up at all.

Menu Markup:

<StaticSelectedStyle  Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#3333CC" />

Code Behind:

        protected void MenuItemClick_NavMenu(Object sender, MenuEventArgs e)


            MenuItem parentItem = e.Item.Parent;

            if (parentItem != null)


                parentItem.Selected = true;

Facebook Connect


Does anybody have links to relevant articles on how Facebook Connect integrates with the Membership provider?

I'd like to make a .net site where you can login through the membership provider, or the Facebook Connect system.  But the big question is, how does your asp.net application know when the Facebook authentication has been successful.  Without manually entering a username and password, is there a function to authenticate users and draw the profile info from Facebook's data?

It seems like a good system, but the documentation is sparse.
