Event receiver not firing for subsite

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

Hi all,


I have an event receiver (WebAdding and WebProvisioned) which works just fine for sites created off the root of the site collection. However, subsites (for example, teamsites created within other areas) do not trigger the code at all.

Does anyone have any idea as to why?

using System;
using System.Security.Permissions;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Security;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow;
using System.Text;

namespace TestEventReceiver.EventReceiver1
  /// <summary>
  /// Web Events
  /// </summary>
  public class EventReceiver1 : SPWebEventReceiver
    /// <summary>
    /// A site is being provisioned.
    /// </summary>
    public override void WebAdding(SPWebEventProperties properties)

      using (SPWeb web = properties.Web)
        StringBuilder output = new StringBuilder();
        output.AppendFormat("Web Adding");
        output.AppendFormat("<br>Web title: {0}",web.Title);
        SendMyEmail(web, "SendItToMe@MyTestAddress.com", "Web Adding", output.ToString());

    /// <summary>
    /// A site was provisioned.
    /// </summary>
    public override void WebProvision

Event receiver firing wrong list



I have added two eventreceivers to two different lists. But the receivers are firing on both list.
In the element.xml  files ( one for each list) I am adding the receiver to the listdefinition. See below..

When I add an item to any of the two list, the eventreceivers are firing, independent on the list I added the item to.

Does anybody know why?

List 1
<Receivers ListTemplateId="20011">
      <Assembly>AL.Intranet.EventReceivers, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=0224865009a9e8c5</Assembly>

List 2

Why feature with event receiver doesn't activate properly after site provisioning?



I have defined feature with event receivers for my document library and for users List .

I try to activate my feature in onet.xml in section <WebFeatures>. After provisioning a new site from onet.xml  all work fine and my feature is shown as activated, but event receivers doesn't fire. It fires only after reactivating my feature (deactivate, then activate it again). But I need my feature works immediately after site provisioning without deactivating and activating it again. Who knows how to solve this problem?

MouseUp event not firing on ActivityDesigner class?

I have a custom control derived from ActivityDesigner.  I'm basically retemplating the contol to give it a stylized look and feel ... I want to add the ability to change the Display Name by swapping out the TextBlock with a TextBox on MouseUP - but this event is not firing. I can handle the MouseDown event and it works OK, except it enters the Edit mode when dragging the activity around.  Is the MouseUp handled at the base level?  Is there a way to work around this?

Sharepoint Event Handler not firing

I have written an event handler for an ItemAdded eventfor a document library. I am trying to read an excel file being uploaded and extract a value from it which I write to a list column for the item. I have this working properly on my development machine which is a Windows Server 2003 machine.However, on a production Windows Server 2008 machine, the event handler never fires. I am doing a simple write to a log file to test and see if it runs at all even if the Excel parsing does not work but I get no indication that it ran. The event handler is being registered with a feature that I am deploying. I have verified that the event handler is registered to the library by using the u2u Event Handler Explorer tool.Is there any way I can determine if my event handlers are even executing? How can I debug this?

ItemAdded Event Handler not firing

Hi, I have created an ItemAdded Event handler that is linked to a content type. This event handler does certain custom validations and then sends Email to users. I have referenced this event handler in XML file as well but somehow the event handler is not getting fired...Following is the code.   Code Snippet            this.DisableEventFiring();            using (SPSite site = new SPSite(properties.SiteId))            {                 using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())                {                    base.ItemAdding(properties);                     SPList nList = web.Lists["NList"];                    SPList IList = web.Lists["IList"];                     foreach (SPListItem listItem in nList.Items)                    {                        if (listItem["Topic"].ToString() == properties.ListItem["Topic"].ToString())                        {                            SPUser alertUser = (SPUser)(properties.ListItem["SUser"]);                            SPUtility.SendEmail(web, false, true,alertUser.Email,"New item added", "A new item has been added");                         }                    }                    this.EnableEventFiring();                }            }       The XML file is: Code Snippet  <XmlDocuments>      <XmlDocument NamespaceURI="http://schemas.microsoft.com/

List Event Receivers firing for all custom lists

Hello, I have a site with two custom lists, and I have created an EventReceiver class to handle the ItemAdded event for custom lists. I have modified the EventReceiver's Elements.xml file to only handle items added to one of the custom lists instead of all custom lists, by changing: <Receivers ListTemplateId="100"> to <Receivers ListUrl="/Lists/MyCustomList">   however, when debugging, the ItemAdded method is being fired when an item is added in both custom lists. I have had to work around this by checking within the ItemAdded method for the list that fired the event:        public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)        {            base.ItemAdded(properties);            if (properties.ListTitle.Equals("My Custom List")) { ... } I thought the ListUrl attribute of the Receivers element specifies the event to only fire for the specific list with that url? (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms431081.aspx). Is there somewhere else I should be checking?   Thanks

How to rename the document using event receiver during upload

Hi all, I am going to programmaticlly rename the document when it is being uploaded to the document library. In Visual Studio 2010, I used the event receiver and choosed the documment libray type, for the event I selected 'ItemAdding". However I am not able to update the file name using the codes inside this thread: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/5c3dcc5d-3113-463d-8835-2a050b2471a6/ Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks!

Drop Down Listbox SelectedIndexChanged Event not firing when I programmatically change selection

I have two drop down listboxes (DDL1 and DDL2).  When DDL1 has an index change, DDL2 then has a refresh of list items based off SQL Server SELECT from a table.  The database isn't the problem.  Everything works perfectly when the user selects a new item manually from DDL1.But in my code, I save the user data from the selection of DDL1 in a separate table.  And then upon rendering of the page (Page_PreRenderComplete), I do a SelectedIndex assignment of the value of what's saved in the db table.  That works just fine, it selects the DDL1 item, but DDL2 is unaffected, as if DDL1's SelectedIndexChanged event isn't called like it would be if manually changed.  How can I get around this?Thanks in advance. :)

ProcessCmdKey event not firing

I have a fairly involved form that is composed of a lot of telerik controls and also has a ChartDirector chart in it.  I am trying to manipulate a cursor in the chart that will skip from one point to another, and I want to use the arrow keys as one method to move the cursor. I have overridden the ProcessCmdKey event in the Form class that hosts all the controls, and it never fires in my application (I put in break points to be sure).  I have tested the exact same code in a newly created RadForms object that also included similar controls (though not as extensive), and it works just fine.  My conclusion is that there is another event that gets fired first and is intercepting the information before ProcessCmdKey sees it. Is this a reasonable assumption, and if so, does anyone know which event might be being fired and know of a way to check what it's doing?  This single form has a few thousand lines of code, and a truckload of event handlers, so excising them one by one will be time consuming. thanks, David

Running code after site definition site creation in a event receiver or feature receiver

Hi guys I've got a site definition which is pretty much based on STS.This is it's own sharepoint project. Let's call this project SiteDefProj. Next in another SharePoint project (same solution though). Let's call this CustomListProject. In this project I've got a feature which provisions a bunch of lists based on custom content types - this feature is a site scoped. Let's call this feature: CustomListInstances. I have added a feature receiver to this feature to execute some custom code on the lists themselves (under feature activated) In my ONET.XML (part of the SiteDefProj) I have CustomListInstances feature ID as part of my <sitefeatures>. When I do a create site I can actually step through the code and see it actually being executed but after the site is created the list instances are created but it's like the code never run or did anything. The weird part is that stepping through the code while creating a site collection using my SiteDefProj the code runs great with no errors. All lists are there and the code runs smooth. If I manually create a STS site and activate my feature everything works and the code does actually run and the effects are visible after the feature is created. Again I can actually step through it in debug. My suspicion is that there's some sort of a race condition in the CREATE SITE functionality where maybe the web or site collection hol

KeyDown event on a Form is not firing for STX and/or ETX
