C#, LINQ: (List<>) Question???


Hi Everyone,

I have a strange problem:


There is an entity (Table) called "Filters" in my .edmx which has all my tables and stuff in it (to use it for LINQ queries)

I have created a class called "CustomFilters" which inherits "Filters". So now my cutom class has all the properties of the original "Filters" class (table) and 1 more additional property that i wanted which is a List of "CustomFilters":

List<CustomFilters> children = new List<CustomFilters>();

Now i get all my records into:

List<CustomFilters> theOriginalList = new List<CustomFilters>();

NOTE: first all records are tken into a List<Filters> and then these are added into List<CustomFilters> where List<CustomFilters> for children of that record is added, and then children of the child records, and so on......

so now, every record is an instance of CustomFilters which has a property named "children" which is a list again; and each child again has instanaces of "CustomFilters", and each instance again has children...and on and on and on.....

(basiacally its a data source for a treeview in my silverlight control)

every thing is good and working as expected.

Filter web parts in new form page of a list



I've created 2 custom lists. The 2nd list has a lookup column from the 1st list. In the new form page for this 2nd list, I've added the 1st list as a web part. Now, I want to connect the 2 web parts, but it's not available. Basically, what I wanted is that when I select an item on the lookup column, the webpart containing 1st list would show that item on the same page.

I think I'll need to use Sharepoint Designer to implement something like this, but just wanted to check if anyone has done something like this using browser only.



Educational question: How server objects are accessed from multiple client threads?

I will appreciate it if someone can help me to undestand how the following scenario works:   There is remoting server that is registered as WellKnownObjectMode.Singleton. Server implementation: It instantiates a class TestServer that implements interface IFoo interface IFoo { IHelper GetHelper() }   interface IHelper { void StoreString(); }   Implementation of TestServer: internal sealed class TestServer: System.MarshalByRefObject, IFoo { private IHelper> helper = new Helper(); public IHelper GetHelper(string helper){return helper;} }   Implementation of Helper: internal sealed class Helper : System.MarshalByRefObject, IHelper { public void StoreString (string val) {}; }   Implementation of a client (simplified; shown to illustrate the question only): static class Program { public static IFoo TestService; public static IHelper Helper; public TestThreads testmultiplecalls; [STAThread] static void Main() { TestService = (IFoo)Activator.GetObject(typeof(IFoo),"ipc://Channel"); Helper = TestService.GetHelper(); testmultiplecalls.Start(); } }   internal class TestThreads { public Start() { for (int i = 0; i < 20; i++) ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem((new TestCall(i.ToString())).DoWork); } }     internal class TestCall { private string m_str; public TestCall (string str) {m_str = str;} public void DoWork() { Program.Helper.StoreString(m_str); } }     Que

Filter items with a date column with parameters start date and end date on a sharepoint list?

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items. How Can I add a filter with two parameters, start date and end date, to only show records with status date equal to or greater than parameter start date and status date is less than or equal to parameter end date? This is a sharepoint online site and I can't create and deploy custom code, can use SPD though. Do I need to use SPD or is this something I can do in the list settings? Thanks in advance.   Edit: I had a look here http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/09/29/sharepoint-date-filter-filtering-a-list-by-greater-than-or-equal-to-date/ but I don't have the Date Filter web part.

Question about List Tools ribbon

List of Objects in Declarative Service

I am trying to create a WCF workflow service that accepts requests from a user to add a new user.  I want to add this "user to be approved" to a list of users List<PendingUsers> and wait until an approver approves one. Then the workflow will remove the approved user from the list and add it to the database. Requirements: 1. Pending users should not be added to the database, they should be maintained in a variable until approved. 2. The second ReceiveAndSendReply will return the list of all pending users.   I have created a service with a flowchart that has a flowchart variable that is the list of pending users. The problem is after each call it is lost. I am assuming the workflow is unloading. Is there another approach I can take or some way to keep the List of Users from unloading between calls.

Create drop-down filter for External List

I hope this is an easy question. I will have an external list of a bunch of people.  There are several ways I want to display this data: All of them, Only the ones that have a value of 1-4 in the status field, Only the ones that have any other value in the status field, and people that have a value of 1-4 in the status field, but are at a certain location. I want to be able to put a drop-down filter above the list where people can select that. Could someone please point me in the right direction? Time is of the essence.

How to filter a List View by multiple values for one filter field?

Hi, I need to create a dynamically created link to a List View with a filter on one field, but with multiple values. Example: http://<server>/Lists/<list>/Allitems.aspx?FilterField1=Name&FilterValue1=John/Jack/Jonas which should give me all items where Name equals John, Jack or Jonas. Is this even possible?

How do you filter a list in a Meeting workspace based on the meeting date?

I have a customer who is using a meeting workspace, and has a list on said workspace (we'll call it "Meeting Instance List"). The workspace houses this list, and of course after each meeting, the workspace, in essence, resets itself in preparation for the next meeting - so it looks like it removes the items from the list, when in actuality, they are there, just on the previous meeting instances. Some of his stakeholders are finding this limiting because they perceive it as losing historical information (you know how some folks can be, if they don't see it, they think it's gone). His solution is to replace the non-series list, with a series list, and incorporate legacy records from another older list. Only problem is, now there's not a way to filter the series list so that it shows items from a parcticular meeting date. For instance - the [Today] variable will only return a current system date value. Surely there ought to be a similar variable that would all you to filter the list based on meeting date, right?

list view connection filter doesn't work

  I have  a custom display form for documents library with two connected List View WebPart. I am trying to filter documents at the second list view with the value from the first one. Both list views contain data from the same documents library. I have configured the connection, but second list doesn’t display any item, and it doesn’t matter which field I use for filtering. Also  for another document s library’s custom  display form  it work perfect.But there second list view contain data from another documents library. Not the same as at first   case. Any ideas with my issue?

Filter External List by a range of data

I have an external list web part that I am currently using a choice filter on to filter by a certain status.  The options are yes, no, or (empty).  However, I would like to be able to add an additional option to filter where the person has the previous status set to no, but has a value in a different field greater than 90. I realize that the choice filter probably wouldn't do this, and that I could do this easily with separate list views, where I have some sort of web part that can change the list views on the fly. I would think I could use one of those list filters to do this, but when I tried to do that for my original problem, I was unable to connect the filter to my external list. I could connect the list view filter to any internal list without an issue however.  Somebody commented on my old thread that I posted as cptInsane0 that I could just make an infopath view form that has buttons that do this.  I have dabbled with infopath a little bit, but I wasn't able to get infopath to connect to my external list either.  I first had to connect to an internal one, and then for some reason I could add the external list as an alternate data source. I can't be the first person who has had this issue. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Multi Select List and Filter Capabilities



I have a custom list created and one on the columns is a Choice list with the multi select option.  I need to be able to filter by the data based on one selection from that choice list.  For example, this choice coloumn is for a list of job role.  I need users to be able to select their role so to filter to what they need to see in other coloumns in that same custome list.  I have tried adding the sharepoint filter above my list however, that column is not an option to select on due to the multi select option. Is there an easy way to filter on that column.

Custom List View - filter blank value



I am creating a custom list view in SPD2010 and am having some problems. I want to have 3 filters (language, country and quarter). I have set these up as ASP drop down lists that auto postback and then I have defined the paramaters and linked them into the list filter.




This works fine and all 3 drop downs filter the list. The only problem I am having is if I want to search just on one column. The way I have it set up in the filter is

Country EQUALS [Country] AND
Language EQUALS [Language] AND
Quarter EQUALS [Quarter]

If I want to show all entries from Germany and not filter on Language and Quarter how do I do this? I have tried adding a "Please Select.." entry at the top of the list and setting the value to nothing but it does not work. I have had to create 3 seperate views but I would love to get these 3 filters working at the same time.

Is there a value in SP that I can use to filter on blank values or not consider the column at all? I have tried using nothing in the value and also tried NULL but neither have worked.

I have been trying to solve this for some time with no luck :( If anyone has any
