SharePoint Desiger 2010 Workflow causing Gantt view failure?

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

I would love to know if anyone seen the following and found a workaround?

  1. Create an Issue Tracker list and a Tasks list
  2. Add a very simple workflow to the Issue Tracker list using SPD 2010 to:
    1. Create an Item in the Tasks list
    2. Update the Issue Tracker list item (e.g. to set it Issue Status value to Resolved)
  3. On the Issue Tracker list try to now view the list using a Gantt view (you will have to create one)

At this point we are seeing errors rendering the Gantt view and the ULS logs seem to indicate that the error is from some code that is trying to parse a multi-value column, and as best we can make out, the column it seems to be failing on is the Property Bag (MetaInfo) column. The peculiar thing is that the Task list's Gantt view does render (with the same type of values in the MetaInfo column).

Weird one, and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has a solution they can share!

Thanks,
Fintan

on a Sharepoint 2010 environment, I've got a problem displaying the Gantt side of a Project task list: I can see the columns with Task name, Start, Finish and so on but the right side is empty. I can see the calendar grid but no bars are shown.

No error is shown in IE, the Sharepoint log or anywhere else.

Anybody has in idea about the possible cause?

Register Java-Script Events on SharePoint 2010 Gantt View

  

Hi,

did someone of you already try to implement dragging and dropping items in Gantt View for SharePoint 2010?

I was trying to register some JavaScript-Events on the vml-Elements (<v:shape class="jsgrid-vml".../>) representing events in the gantt-view. The problem is that i can not access theese items through DOM... Theese Elements are also not included in the html-code of the page (right click-> view source)...

Before I start to write a SilverLight-WebPart I just wanted to ask, if there are better Ideas...:-)

Thanks.

SharePoint 2010 Long Starting if start workflow programatically

  

In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:

					SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
					SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);

					//resolve any lookup parameters
					string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);

					//find workflow association by name
					SPWorkflowAssociation workflowAssoc = currentList.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName(workflowId, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture);

					if (workflowAssoc != null)
					{
						//start the workflow
						SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);
					}

And workflow #2  will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified  to Completed.

I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow

  

In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.

In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details

Video: What's New in SharePoint 2010 Workflow

  
Prior to SharePoint 2010, workflows had to be associated with a list. This meant that if you found a problem that would be well suited to using workflow that wasn't list or document related, you would have to find some way to associate that workflow with a list. This often led to "dummy" list items only created to be a vehicle for a workflow. (Length: 13:50)

How to start a workflow programmatically that was created in Sharepoint designer 2010?

  
Trying to start a workflow from code.  The workflow itself has been created in SPD 2010, which from what I understand, means that there is no assembly until the first time it's ran.  However, when I try to find the association record, that doesnt exist.  Is this becuase the 'code' hasnt been compiled yet?  If so, how can I have sharepoint start the just-in-time compiler for a declarative based workflow, so that can kick it off with in code? tia Rocky SandersRocky Sanders

How to create a custom view in SharePoint 2010?

  
I can't find a good answer for this with the 15 minutes of searching I have done. Makes me think that there might be some roadblocks here.  I want to create a custom view for a list in sharepoint. Basically, I want to conditionally apply some custom table row formatting based on a value of a column in that row  conditionally add an image along with a text in a column (again based on a column value) I am thinking that a custom view is the way to go...any direction on this? maybe a link to a good example? Thanks, Jake.
