How to create a custom Gantt Chart for SharePoint using VS

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
So I have been told you can't create a custom gantt chart using SharePoint Designer.  I don't believe that actually, there must be a way to create one from scratch using SPD and a Data View and editing the XSL directly....but assuming there is not..

Are there any articles that explain for a non-developer how to create a custom gantt chart for a SharePoint site using Visual Studio 2008?

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.

Sharepoint Foundation - Create and deploy custom edit/view forms for external lists


Firstly, we are using sharepoint foundation so Infopath forms are not an option for us.

We have a Visual Studio sharepoint project which deploys a complete sharepoint site. The site contains a number of external lists and we want to be able to create customised view/edit forms for these lists and add them to our Visual Studio project so they can be deployed as part of the new site. The idea is that we can deploy the solution to a fresh site with a default set of forms which can then be customised for different implementations of the site.

Here's the steps we have been using to try and do this:

1. Deploy the base project (BDC) to the sharepoint site

2. Create external lists based on the BDC content types

3. Use Sharepoint Designer to create new edit/view forms for the lists and set these as the default forms for the list

3. Save the site as a template

4. Import the template into a new Visual Studio project and select the lists we require. This gives us a List Definition, a pages module (with element file), an elements file and a schema file (both for the List Instance).

5. We then add the contents of the imported project to our main solution as follows:

  • Create a new List Definition (including List Instance)
  • Copy the contents of the imported Elements.xml to the Elements file for our List Instance.

Sharepoint Designer 2007 - Workflows stopped and can't create custom NewForm or custom EditForm


Everything was working great until the last few days when I made the SP site more robust. I am now ready to create a custom New Form so that my "requestor" doesn't have to deal with all of the fields. I want to create a custom Edit List so that I can hide all of the flags that get tripped while completing workflows. This morning I tried to create the NewForm (as I have done in the past) but nothing loads. I tried creating it with a different list, and it loaded fine so I know it has something to do with my list. I tried executing workflows so that I might be able to narrow down the problem, but now no workflows work even though they did a couple of days ago.

One of the items added as a "pause until" workflow. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. I also have roughly 85 fields. I haven't seen anywhere on the blogs that the number of fields is an issue but you never know.

Can anyone help? Please?

How to create SharePoint BDC connector for searching custom repository


I am researching how to make a custom respository searchable in SharePoint 2010. I read through documentation on BDC, including Todd Baginski's blog post on .Net Assembly Connector, and get the big picture, but I am missing a lot of details. I wonder if anyone can share their experience and idea.

The custom repository has 3 elements: file (Office document, PDF etc) on the file system, custom metadata and custom ACL in an Oracle database. The requirement is to search the file and its metadata as a signle document and trim the search result using the custom ACL.

The possible approach I have come up so far:

1. Develop BDC .Net assembly connector to index the custom metadata and ACL as an enternal entity, treat the file as an attachment.

2. Develop BDC custom connector to index all 3 elements at once. Possibly starts with indexing the files first and enrich the content stream with metadata and ACL from the database

Would any of these approach work? Any sample code to add file/file stream as attachment? What is the best way to incorporate custom ACL into search?

Any helps and suggestions are appriciated.


Create custom workflow using Managed Metadata and Sharepoint Designer


Hello all,


We have a very specific question from one of our customers concerning managed metadata and workflows that I can’t seem to figure out. Maybe you could give me a hand. This is the situation:


They want a taxonomy store with managed metadata. The departments of the customer are stored here (in a branched way). When a user adds an document to a document library he or she has to fill in the metadata field for the department so it will be connected to this document. Depending on the department they want to assign an approval task to a different manager.
