AKS Toolkit and font sizes

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
Am I losing the plot or do the masterpages included in the accessibility toolkit (AKS) not allow you to change the font size in the browser?

I thought that was one of the fixes that this toolkit solves or maybe I misunderstood!

Would appreciate anyones thoughts on this.

Need to learn how to change FONT SIZES within web parts through Sharepoint

I'm a new user to Sharepoint 2010 - have casually used Sharepoint Services since 2.0. I'm trying to find a way to change the FONT SIZE of Links in a LINK web part - there does not seem to be a user-friendly option for this.  How can I increase the font size of links in a LINK web part, so that the user can see them more easily?  Does it require something in Sharepoint Designer to do this?  If so - is there any info on easy steps to navigate Sharepoint Designer, to do a simple task like increasing a font size of the links?

Building a grouping Grid with GridView and ASP.NET AJAX toolkit CollapsiblePanel

I've posted an update to this post to apply on demand loading of Details data using ASP.NET AJAX PageMethods. I'm demonstrating the usage if CollapsiblePanelExtender client events on the new post. Check it out.

I admit, Matt Berseth is really inspiring me! Few days ago I pass through 2 of his great posts:

.Surrounding your Data Table and Dialog Controls with ComponentArt Styled Panels
.Building a Grouping Grid with the ASP.NET 3.5 LinqDataSource and ListView Controls
The first one is pure design tips one which I used for making good presentation of my demo here. The 2nd post is actually the idea.

Using the WPF Toolkit DataGrid

WPF comes with a large number of built in controls, but from the beginning it has lacked something that many application developers find extremely important - a DataGrid. You can use the ListView to create something approximating a DataGrid

Where is SilverLight Toolkit in VS2010?


I read somewhere that MS has integrate SilverLight Toolkit into VS2010. Where is it? I can't find it under Toolbox.

VWDE 2010 Won't Install Ajax Control Toolkit on XP Pro


To my displeasure I cannot find VWD2005 which at one time would generate a complete web.config for Ajax so I downloaded and installed VWDE 2010 to a clean install of XP Pro.

I've created a new tab on the toolbar for the controls but after I select the Ajax dll to add the controls to the toolbar it grinds away and then goes poof and closes down the task leaving VWD look as if I had never even created the tab in the toolbar. 


Any advice here?

Office XP: New Toolkit Lets You Share Information Between Office Documents and Web Services


The Office XP Web Services Toolkit makes it possible to build applications that gather information and trigger transactions through various Web Services. The toolkit allows you to easily discover Web Services remotely. It also includes the Web Service Reference Tool, which lets you call a Web Service from inside an Office application. This article shows how toolkit-generated code can be used to access simple, as well as complex, Web Services.The author steps through the auto-generated code to explain the classes that collect parameters, the schema to format the request/response, and the actual operations of the Web Service.

Wireless Web: Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit Lets Your Web Application Target Any Device Anywhere


If you've built Web sites using ASP.NET, you'll welcome the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT). MMIT extends the Visual Studio .NET IDE you already know by providing new controls for handheld devices letting you easily develop applications for wireless devices. This means you can write less code while adapting it to more devices. Not only does MMIT integrate with Visual Studio .NET, it extends ASP.NET as well. This article gives you the background you need to write, test, and deploy a site with MMIT and make all your code able to target specific devices for a custom fit.

SOAP Toolkit 2.0: New Definition Languages Expose Your COM Objects to SOAP Clients


In SOAP Toolkit 2.0, the Services Description Language (SDL) has been replaced with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and the Web Services Meta Language (WSML). WSDL and WSML files describe the interfaces to a service and expose COM objects to SOAP clients. This article describes a custom tool, IDL2SDL, which takes an IDL file and produces WSDL and WSML files without waiting for a DLL or TLB file to be generated. Also shown is a customized development environment in which WSDL and WSML files automatically reflect the changes to IDL files.

Develop a Web Service: Up and Running with the SOAP Toolkit for Visual Studio


The new Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Toolkit for Visual Studio 6.0 provides the infrastructure for developers to build, expose, and consume Web services. With a few exceptions that are outlined in the toolkit, the SOAP Toolkit complies with the SOAP version 1.1 specification. It includes the Remote Object Proxy Engine (ROPE), a Service Description and Code Generation Wizard, and code that provides ASP and ISAPI reference implementations of SOAP listeners. This article describes the tools and the object model of the SOAP Toolkit, and then demonstrates ASP and ISAPI implementations of a functional Web service using this toolkit.

Think that there is actually errors in ajax toolkit for 2.0 framework...hmm


Im using VS2008, asp.net C# 2.0.


Recently i tryed to correct some stuff on my page and i had a friend to take a look at the stuff...


What i did was that i have Examples page with code examples. Then accordion panes for each code piece...And syntaxhighlighter for each code piece. The code that i presented is read from the txt files wich makes it easyer for me to put new examples on the site...

But the problem is now that two of my accordion panes are not working...and everything works in all other browsers this just happens in Internet Explorer. This is kind of weird and my friends explaination was that there is actually errors in the ajax toolkit dll.


Im using the latest version of ajax toolkit for framework 2.0 wich is 1.0.20229.

My friend said its actually amazing that the toolkit has been out there for that long and it has not been tested that well and that there i still errors in it.


You can test this by your self by doing the exact as i explain:


go here: http://www.simpa.dk/Examples.aspx?cookieCheck=true

click Csharp

and try to open the accordion that is from the bottom 2 or 1 they dont collapse...

but this works in all other browsers then Internet Explore

Create databound nested ajax toolkit accordion programatically(In code Behind)


Can anyone guide me in the right direction or give an example of How I would accomplish this?


I have  this so far but kind of stuck on how to do it programtically if I'm using header and content templates 

I have a xmldatasource.. In a nutshell at what point in my code do I need to create a new accordion? does it need to be

in the item_databound handler?


Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class AccordionTemplate
    Implements System.Web.UI.ITemplate

    Dim templateType As String

    Sub New(ByVal type As String)
        templateType = type
    End Sub

    Public Sub InstantiateIn(ByVal container As System.Web.UI.Control) _
          Implements System.Web.UI.ITemplate.InstantiateIn

        Dim ph As New PlaceHolder()

        Select Case (templateType)
            Case "Header"
                Dim myLabel As Label = New Label()
                myLabel.Text = "Test"
            Case "Content"
                ph.Controls.Add(New LiteralControl("<p>hello</p>"))
        End Select
    End Sub

End Class



Partial Class Accordion
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page


Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.
