How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

Custom field type - set value doesn't work when field is hidden

Hi, I have a simple custom field type which gets a value from the Property Bag and sets that value to a label. This works fine as long as the field is set to Optional (the field is a site column and is part of a site content type), but if I set it to Hidden, the value doesn't get set. public override void UpdateFieldValueInItem()         {             this.EnsureChildControls();               if (this.ControlMode == SPControlMode.New)             {                 this.Value = GetChosenConsole();             }         }   Does anyone know why this is and what I need to do in order for it to work even though it's hidden? Thanks!

Custom Web Part doesn't work with in anonymous access

Hi there, I have a custom webpart in a farm solution deployed to my site. Anonymous users should be able to view the site, however they can't because they are required to login due to the custom web part. If i remove the webpart from the page, anonymous users can view the site perfectly without the need to login. There is nothing really special about the webpart. It's a visual web part which uses the site and it's web data to display a sort of menu. Any idea? Thx in advance! Brecht

WPF Custom Control template doesn't work



I've created a WPF custom control that goes in a DLL and I'm trying to use the control in another project.  Everything works fine except for the part of getting the control template to work. I should get an Orange background as defined below but the control just shows empty in the XAML editor and in runtime.

The code is as follows:


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows;

namespace MyCustomControl
    public class CustomCtrl : System.Windows.Controls.Control
        public static readonly System.Windows.DependencyProperty ValueProperty;
        public string Value
            get { return (string)GetValue(CustomCtrl.ValueProperty); }
            set { SetValue(CustomCtrl.ValueProperty, value); }

        static CustomCtrl()

Custom Timer Job does not really work



I made a custom timer job to export some date in excel files. It works really good on my developmet computer.

I installed the solution on the customer’s server and activated the features. The timer job was well created. After that, I would test the job and I pushed the button “execute now” in Central Administration. After a few seconds I found a new entry in my Job History with the successfully finished job.

How to make Custom SharePoint 2010 Webpart work on MOSS 2007 Environment



I've built a SharePoint WebPart in SharePoint 2010, using SharePoint Assembly version Now i've to make this Webpart such that i should work on SharePoint 2010 and MOSS 2007. The version no for both the versions are different, so do i need to create separate web-part for both version or is there any other way?

My current webpart is built in env, which has

SharePoint 2010, Windows 7 64 Bit, VS 2010.

Reference is added to SharePoint DLL which is in 14 Hive ISAPI.


How can i make this generic, so that i should work on both version, i've not used anything specific which is only in SP2010, its just a simple webpart.

Custom Controls in C# .NET

Embedding user controls in a Windows form is just like adding a simple button or text box that are already provided with .NET. These basic controls were written essentially like you code your own controls. Typically the controls you design are to be used in multiple forms or to modularize your code. These reasons help reduce the amount of code you have to type as well as make it easier for you to change your implementation. There should almost never be any reason to duplicate code because it leaves a lot of room for bugs. So, implementing functionality specific to your control in the control's source code is a good idea. This reduces code duplication as well as modularize your code, which is a good programming guideline.

Writing custom MembershipProvider

ASP.NET Membership mechanism allows to use the build-in server tables to store and retrieve user data. By default, this mechanism can only be used with SQL Server database to which Microsoft provides suitable MembershipProvider class.
Inheriting from this abstract class, developer can use his own table(-es) from any database and use any database engine other than SQL Server, like Oracle, DB2 etc.

Custom Editing Behavior for DataGridView TextBox Columns

For various reasons I'm using a DataGridView instead of a ListView, and while configuring the DataGridView to look like a ListView wasn't much of a problem, there's one thing that got on my nerves, which is the behavior of textbox cells in edit mode: It is much too easy to leave the edit mode accidentally, simply by pressing the cursor keys at the wrong time. For example when the text caret is positioned behind the last character of the textbox cell content, and you press the right arrow key

Write Custom WebParts for SharePoint 2007

The popularity of SharePoint Portal Server 2003 led Microsoft to tightly integrate the next SharePoint version, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, with its ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart framework. This tight integration enables the ASP.NET and SharePoint developer to do a number of things that previously weren't possible

Writing Custom Web Parts for SharePoint 2007

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, SharePoint 2007 is built on top of ASP.NET 2.0, which means you can now use ASP.NET 2.0 features (Forms Authentication, Master Pages, Membership, Site Navigation, New Data Controls, etc) when building SharePoint sites. This is true for both the new Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 version (which will be a free download) as well as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (which costs money).
