How to display a user's department in another field

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


I have created an infopath form with a UserPicker Field. Just under that field is a textbox where I would like to display the department of whatever user was selected in yeh userpicker field. I have tried connecting to the getuserprofilebyname webservice, but it seems only to reflect the current user's details.

Is there any way of reflecting this information? All details are captured in AD and I would really like to keep it only in AD

Thanks in advance

Passing Primary Key to User Control to Display Record Detail


I'm building a user control to display detail information on a parent record. The user control will be displayed via an Ajax Modal Popup. The user control works and is displayed when expected. The problem that I'm having is that I'm not able to pass in the primary key for the parent. The control is displayed via the _ItemCommand event of a Repeater. In the markup for the user control, I explicity set the ContactId to 0 to avoid an error when the control loads (its still underdevelopment, eventually that I'll check if the value is valid).

I was assuming that I could change the property in the _ItemCommand event, but obviously its not working.

In the Page_Load event this code successfully sets the ContactId property of the control. The _ItemCommand event appears to set the value. However when I set a test label on the user control to the Me.ContactId, its showing '0' as if it was never passed in.

        UserControlContactDetail.ContactId = "1462"
        test.Text = UserControlContactDetail.ContactId

How to Set a list item's createdby or modifiedby field as a User(deleted from AD)



I have to migrate data from SQL DB to SP list. But its old data and some users who created/modified the record has been deleted from the AD. Now I need to set the CreatedBy / ModifiedBy Field of the item accordingly. How to achieve this?

Please help me find an optimal solution for this...

User display Name & People Picker

Hi, We wanted to use a web application without user profile service. We have added users their display name is always domain\username. Is it that without user profile service display names will not be updated. But my understanding is that people picker also returns display name. Is it something else we need to configure to get the displayname from the people picker itself.Satheesh

Is it possible to display the friendly name or email address of LiveID User Using Claims Authenticat

We have finally gotten LiveID authentication to work.  However when we specify a user to add to a sharepoint group, we need to do it via the unique id that live uses.   The user does login using their usual email address and password, but on the sharepoint side they see the PUID@live.com as the logged in user, and when we want to specify the user to have access to the a particular site or library, we have to do it by the same PUID@live.com.  This display makes it difficult to manager users on the sharepoint side.   Is there something I missed on setting up of the authentication provider, or is there something I can do to get sharepoint to retrieve the other information so that we can view the user through the email or full name that live provides?   Steve Paplanus

Display each new line of a sharepoint mutliline text field as choice in drop down box.

The question pretty much says it all. I have a lot of data I need to represent, and this would be the best way to do it. I have a multiline text field in sharepoint, where each line has a choice that should be a seperate choice in a text box. How do I do this? I have the data connection set up, and I would be fine with adding some sort of tag after each line, if that would make it so infopath can somehow parse out those tags, and interpret each "chunk" as a choice. Thanks in advance for your help.

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

Display Value Based on ID Field in Datalist


This should be very simple but I guess my mind is even more simple.

I am trying to display a starting date from an access database based on the dateId field in a datalist.

On page 1 (using a master page) the customer selects a starting date from a dropdownlist. When the customer hits the submit button, they are transferred to page 2 where the selected starting date is displayed.

The database table is basically:

DateID Startingdate

1             1/1/2010

2             2/1/2010

3             3/1/2010

4             4/1/2010

5             5/1/2010

The dropdownlist from page 1 is:

<asp:DropDownList class="formtextbox" ID="DrpStartCov1" runat="server" 
                DataTextField="Date" DataValueField="DateID">

My select command is:
SelectCommand="SELECT [NextMonth], [DateID] FROM [List]"

display of username in "domain/user" instead of "surname givenname"

SharePoint User Display


Is there any way to force SharePoint to use the "Lastname, Firstname" format when a user is logged in. I would like to display this instead of DOMAIN\USER on the top right of the screen. My first and last names are valid in my AD account so I am not sure why SP is pulling DOMAIN\USER instead of "Lastname, Firstname" format.


Display confirm message using javascript after user successful logs in



I need to display a javascript confirm box after the user successfully logs into the application. If the select 'yes'  of the confirm box then I need to navigate them to a different page and if they select 'no' the default.aspx page should be displayed. I am using the login control.

I tried to use ClientScript. RegisterClientScriptBlock on Login1_Authenticate event, it didn't work. I tried the same thing on the Page_Load event of Default.aspx as well as Master Page load event, that also didnt work.

How can this be accomplished? Need a quick resolution.
