Custom modal dialog for 2007 launched from web part

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


I have a web part containing a button.  When clicked, the button unhides a div that I want to look like a SharePoint modal dialog (2007), I need it to work in 2007 so can't use anything from later SP products. 

I don't necessarily have to unhide a div - showing a dialog via javascript or back-end ASP.NET code is fine as well.  I just need to duplicate the SharePoint dialog functionality somehow :)

Custom Edit form - close modal dialog and navigate to page

Hi, I created one custom edit form for my document library, replaced default save and cancel buttons with input buttons and added the form action to them. Then I set my page as default edit form. When I click edit button, my custom form opens in modal pop up. When I try to save the item by clicking new save button, item gets saved but pop remains as it is. Now, I want the modal pop up to get closed and navigate to page other than the parent page with some parameters after I click save button. How can I achieve this? Thanks!!

What factors into the calculation of the width of modal dialog windows? (problems with custom master


I have a fairly customized masterpage and while the modal dialog boxes seem fine in Chrome and IE, they aren't rendering wide enough in firefox causing them to need to be horizontally scrolled.

I've figured out that it's not my stylesheet because when I deactivate it the problem still remains. When I try going back to v4.master it also works fine, so I'm mostly positive it's my masterpage.

I've tried going through and removing various customizations but nothing seems to resolve the issue. I'm thinking it may be related to the ribbon which I have detached from the top of the page.

I'm hoping if someone knows how the width of the modal window is calculated I might be able to track down the bug.

I wish I could just set the modal windows to use a different masterpage all together or have more easily accessible css. Maybe Sharepoint 2012? :)

Open custom aspx page as modal dialog from link


Here's what I'm trying to achieve. I got a url field in my list which contains a link to a custom aspx page I've created earlier. I've added the "&IsDlg=1" property to my url and I want to page to be opened as a modal dialog. However the page opens full window and not as a dialog at all.

Do I have to create a custom field? I've seen how to open a modal dialog with javascript, but my url field only accepts http://xxx aso so I'm screwed. Any help is very much appreciated.

Write Custom WebParts for SharePoint 2007

The popularity of SharePoint Portal Server 2003 led Microsoft to tightly integrate the next SharePoint version, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, with its ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart framework. This tight integration enables the ASP.NET and SharePoint developer to do a number of things that previously weren't possible

Writing Custom Web Parts for SharePoint 2007

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, SharePoint 2007 is built on top of ASP.NET 2.0, which means you can now use ASP.NET 2.0 features (Forms Authentication, Master Pages, Membership, Site Navigation, New Data Controls, etc) when building SharePoint sites. This is true for both the new Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 version (which will be a free download) as well as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (which costs money).

Windows XP: Escape from DLL Hell with Custom Debugging and Instrumentation Tools and Utilities, Part


Building on his article published in the June issue, which demonstrated several ways to get process and DLL-related information from APIs such as PSAPI, NTDLL, and TOOLHELP32, the author presents some unusual ways to get system-oriented info that you can easily integrate in your own toolkit. There are three tools included as samples: LoadLibrarySpy, which monitors an application and detects which DLLs are really loaded; WindowDump, which retrieves the content and a detailed description of any window; and FileUsage, which redirects console-mode applications to tell you which process is using any opened file.

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page


I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?


Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Custom Button (Sharepoint 2007)




I have a relatively small project to build a class sign up portal for my company.  I am about 90% done and this is one I have so far:


1 custom list off all classes called “Classes” (Class name, Data, teacher, etc, ..)

1 custom list of employees who signed up called “Signup sheet” (Employee Name, Class  name)


What I want is when you display a class information from the “Classes” list, I want a button on the bottom called “sign up for this class” that brings me to the new item page of “Signup sheet” with the class already filled in for you.  Seems easy on paper but I have been trying to do this for weeks.


I am ok with share point designer and am open to any suggestions.


Thanks in advanced,


Refreshing a Jquery modal dialog after closing another Jquery modal dialog


I have one aspx page which contains a webpart. The structure of the webpart is:

Webpart(holds one user control say UC1)

      UC1-> contains another user control say (UC2) in a <div>, which I am going to show as a popup on clicking of a link button inside a gridview in UC1.

      UC2-> contain another user control say (UC3) in a <div>, which I am going to show as a popup on clicking of a button inside in UC2.

That means -> UC1(main page) ------->(Onclick) One JQuery popup(UC2)--------------->(OnClick) One Jquery popup(UC3) here UC2 is still remaining in focus and UC3 will be another Jquery popup on UC2.

Now my requirement is when i fill the Jquery popup(UC3) and click on save button in UC3, I would like to close UC3 Jquery popup and refresh the gridview inside UC2 Jquery popup without closing it.

Is this possible?(please explain the logic if found in terms of Jquery, but not in terms of normal popup windows)
