Display progress to users from code behind

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have created a custom ribbon button which assembles multiple documents into one pdf.  I used Bart X. Tubalinal's excellent example http://www.deviantpoint.com/post/2010/05/08/SharePoint-2010-Download-as-Zip-File-Custom-Ribbon-Action.aspx to create my ribbon button and action.

The process of converting word doc's to pdf and then assembling them takes some time.  I would like to display progress to the users either with the Notify or Status feature.  (It would be cool to have each document name slide across their screen with the Notify method when starting the conversion for that document).

In a nutshell the ribbon executes a command in a custom.js file.  That file compiles the id's for each document and then opens an aspx page.  that aspx page has a page load method which then converts each document into a pdf and then merges each one together to form one document.

But I believe that the aspx page that get's opened is preventing the site to update iteself with notifications.  here is the js file that i'm using:

/// <reference name="MicrosoftAjax.js" />

Attack Surface: Mitigate Security Risks by Minimizing the Code You Expose to Untrusted Users


In this article, Microsoft security expert Michael Howard discusses the cardinal rules of attack surface reduction. His rules - reduce the amount of code executing by default, reduce the volume of code that is accessible to untrusted users by default, and limit the damage if the code is exploited - are explained along with the techniques to apply the rules to your code.

Code Name WinFS: Revolutionary File Storage System Lets Users Search and Manage Files Based on Conte


One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

Want to create Page URL rewrite based on Users GUID and Display name?



I am using the asp.net membership. 

On my site I have a Profile.aspx page.

In the code behind of this page,  i get the logged in UserId (Guid) and pass

this to a method in my DAL. GetUserByUserId()


In my database I have a Table called Member which the method gets the data from

and displays details on the page about  the user.


What I want to happen is when they have logged in and are diverted to Profile.aspx,

the page URL shows www.MyWebSite/Profile/UsersName 

for example



is this possible. In my Member table I have FirstName and LastName columns or do I get the

name from the membership table.


even better would be they go straight to www.MyWebsite/JohnSmith.aspx


thank you for any help

Gridview display users and personal profiles



I am trying to populate a gridview control to display the current registered users on the site.

I query various tables from the ASPDOTNET.mdb database in order have a list comprising of UserNames, Email address, LastLoggedOn, etc. This bit is fine and it displays all the details.

The part I'm having a problem with, is I would like to add the FirstName and LastName to each row also. But I'm not sure how to get at the record. In the profile table I have a column with this detail within plus other personal details but I only need to retrieve the names and display that in the gridview.

Cheers Rob.

How to prevent users from pasting HTML code in choice list (MySite)

Why a Security Warning on web page loading? How can code or users avoid it?


My asp.net page now gives a popup box titled "Security Warning" when the page loads. There are multiple pages in my app that do this. The content of the dialog box reads "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?"

Why is this happening all of a sudden? I think it's because the pages contain some http links to external site pages, but i don't remember seeing the message before, and those "nonsecure" links have been there from the beginning. I did add 30+ images though, sourced from in another directory of the project.

Is there some way i can make the images and links "secure"; delivered via https?

Is there some browser setting for users to set so they don't see this popup every time one of the many pages in this website loads?

All feedback and insight is appreciated!!!

Source Code Display


Does anyone know how to make my source code to display on one line instead of multiple in source view.  The display drives me batty when I'm trying to find something and I would prefer to display across the page instead of multiple lines down the page.
