pre populating webparts

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

hi,

 

i m wanting to know if it is possible to pre populate content within a webpart so the user only has to add the web part to the page, and not make any configurations changes.

What i am trying to achieve is with the image web part and pre loading this with an image which is hyper linked to another of our systems

Could you let me know if this is possible and if so how i go about doing this.

Thanks

Help me with webParts

  

I added WebPartManager to my default.aspx and i get   teh following Message :

Populating Dropdown List using FK

  

Hi Folks,

2 Questions. I am trying out Data Entities in VWD 2010 Express. I have a parent (Customers) and child (Orders) table. Customers table has FirstName, LastName and Email columns.

Q1. When I view/edit/insert an Order, it shows the customer's first name in dropdown list whereas I want the full name. How can this be done?

Q2. How can I change the default behavior of PK/FK relationship so that customer's Email is displayed instead of Name?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Cheers


Populating a list box in InfoPath from a sql stored proc

  

I have an InfoPath web enabled form that gets published to a SharePoint site.  I need to add a list box to the form that gets populated with data returned from an existing call to a SQL Stored Proc.  

As the form works now, the user types in a patient id #, then clicks a button that calls the Stored Proc and returns any patients that match the given patient ID.  This part works.  

My task is to add a list box so that if more than one patient is returned , display the list box with all of these patients populated in it.

I am hoping to do this within the confines of the existing code.  The existing code looks like this:

private bool LoadPatientInformationFromDB(string patientId, string patientFirstName,
      string patientLastName, string patientMiddleInitial, string birthDate, string gender,
        string admitDate, string location)
    {
      bool completed = false;
      //Load from DB
      SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(GetOrderSetDBConnectionString()); 
      //Create Form Builder
      formBuilder = new FormBuilder();
      SqlDataAdapter adpt = null;
      
      try
      {
        if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientId) || !String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientFirstName) ||
          !String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientLastName) || !String.IsNullOrEmpty(patientMiddleInitial)
          || !St

user control derived from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts only fires its OnPreRender and CreateCh

  

 I have a application which uses webparts.

So my user controls are derived from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts which makes them webparts.

I have everything setup and working fine as far as the personalization and webpart goes... every thing displays and works fine.

Except that 1 of my control needs to do a bit of work in the OnPreRender event and it turns out that event only gets fired when a user is loged in the application.

So lets imagine that an administrator while logged in switched to 'Sharedscope' within the webpartmanager and then has added the usercontrol/webpart 'calendar' to the top webpart zone. This then makes the 'calendar' control viewable by all and any user who visits the page wheter logged in or anonymous.

And this works fine and very well as it is supposed to. However in the 'Calendar' user control which is derived from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts I have an overiden 'OnPreRender' event like this:

Protected Overrides Sub OnPreRender(ByVal e As EventArgs)

If Not Me.DesignMode Then

Me.isloaded = True

' Test for ScriptManager and register if it exists

sm = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(Page)

If sm Is Nothing Then _

Throw New HttpException("A ScriptManager control must exist on the current page.")

jQuery results set keeping populating

So my question is how can i clear the HTML so the result is repeated multiple times? or what is the best way to solve this problem?

Problem changing/upgrading properties on WebParts that have already been deployed and added to Share

  
I have created two custom webparts which I deploy as a Feature within a Solution.  These webparts have been added to various pages on my site.  Due to design changes, I upgraded the webparts with some new functionality and some other changes to the webpart properties, such as the WebPart title, title icon and catalog icon.  After I have retracted/deleted the old solution and re-deployed the new solution (and activated the feature) the webparts have been upgraded fine, however, the webpart properties were not changed for any webparts that were already added to pages.  I can add new instances of the webparts and they have the updated properties (and also show correctly in the wp gallery and catalog). Is there a step I am missing in order to upgrade any webparts (namely the properties) that have already been added to pages?  Or is this something I have to take care of programmatically somehow to workaround the upgrade problem?

Automatically populating Contact Selector not working in Form Services

  
Hi,I'm currently working on a form where i wan't to automatically populate a contact selector control with a users manager. I've got the managers userid, called the ResolvePrincipal webservice provided by sharpoint, and set all the values in the contact selector with the correct values. When previewing it works perfectly however when i move the form to Form Services it won't work.I've tried setting it via rules: i.e. on the change of a textbox write the manager values to the contact selector.I've tried setting the default values of the contact selector to fields where i write the manager values.I've tried setting it through code i.e. SelectSingleNode() and SetValue() for each of the fields in the contact selector.All of which work fine in preview mode but will not work in Form Services, UNLESS the contact selector already has a user in it. So if the contact selector is blank it won't work, however as soon as i manually select a user then try using any of the previously mentioned methods of setting the control it works. While using code i get a nullreferenceexception which leads me to think that possibly when theres no user in the control the xml nodes representing the AccountId, DisplayName, AccountType don't exit???? TO throw another spanner in the works, on the very odd occasion it will work in Form Services as expected, after celebrating and trying again it returns
