Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise Wiki - TOC, Table of Content - Displaying only headers for individual pag


I am currently trying to build a wiki for our users in Sharepoint 2010, but there is one particular item I just can't get right. The table of content...

I am aware of the web part TOC, but this one can't be configured to display headers for an individual page only. Instead it insist on displaying all my navigation links, for all my sites, which is quite unnecessary since they are already displayed in the navigation pane to the left.

Is there a way to create a TOC as you see on any other normal wiki page, so it would end up looking similar to my example below?

[SITE Header Example]

1. Header

1.1 Subject 1

1.2 Subject 2


2. Header 2

2.1 Subject 3 and so on...


Then the TOC should be placed in top and look similar to this.


1. Header

1.1 Subject 1

1.2 Subject 2

2. Header 2

2.1 Subject 3


Can this be done, or would it require any 3rd party plugins?

I'm a bit baffled that the build in web part isn't more configurable, since I would have guessed that MS actually would have looked at other wiki pages to see how it is done, before adding their own templates? But maybe I am missing the obvious

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?

Repeating table not showing content following a rule refresh

Background info: I have a form where I populate employee info from the GetUserProfileByName ws. From there I populate its manager info from another web service call (seperate data connections).  Once the manager is populated, through rules, I'm populating the first approver. All this is done at form load through rules. The approvers node is defined as follows and is displayed on the form as a repeating table:  participants (group)    approver (repeating group)       ApproverName       ApproverLogin       ApproverEmail Problem: The repeating table is not showing any content even though I'm using an alert to show that I do in fact have one row in there. As a side note, I know the table is working because if the user elects to delegate approval to another user (through the people picker), the table shows these approvers correctly.  Anyone as any clue what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!    

master pages - how to access content page from master page?

Hello,I have a master page setup that is used throughout my site that is basically a header with a menu. I recently added a textbox and a button to this master page which is to be a quick search box that is available anywhere in the site. When a user enters text into the search box and hits the button, I need to load the actual content page which is used to search and show search results (which also uses this same master page), and have the text entered available so the search can be triggered automatically. Again, this search text box and button is now in my master page so it could be  triggered from anywhere in the app... it serves as a convenient way to do a basic search from anywhere in my app, without having to first navigate to the actual 'search page' that already exists.  You can also navigate to the actual search page, which uses the same master page, where there is many more search options.I'm thrown off by the master page arrangement, which I have not used until this project. What do I do?

Problem displaying Date from Sql table on Calendar Control

Hi, I am displaying Event dates from SQL table on Calendar Control in ASP.NET. Also, I have GridView Control which shows event details when certain date is clicked on calendar control. But I have a problem as not all dates are displaying properly. Strangly enough only dates which have same month and day date are displayed. For example: It shows ok dates such as 08/08/2010, 09/09/2010, 10/10/2010 etc. If I click on the date which in SQL table exists as 11/25/2010 or 12/15/2010 etc (no matching month/day numbers) it shows error message saying: "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string."  Follwoing is my code: using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Web; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; using System.Data.Sql; using System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging; using System.Configuration; using System.Data.SqlClient; using System.Data; using System.Drawing; public partial class Test_Calendar : System.Web.UI.Page { SqlConnection mycn; SqlDataAdapter myda; DataSet ds = new DataSet(); DataSet dsSelDate; String strConn; private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { strConn = "Data Source=mydatasource;Initial Catalog=DBname;Persist Security I

Accessing master page from content page? Raising Event?

Here is my situation:I have a user control that has a menu in it.  This user control sits on my master page.  It is my main navigation menu for my application.I am having an issue where, on one of my pages, users seem to be leaving the page before committing all changes to the database, which results in a loss of data.So what I want to accomplish is - if the user is leaving this page and the data has not been saved yet, I want to prompt the user and say something like "The information is not yet saved, are you sure you want to leave this page" in a modal popup.So my approach is this:In my menu user control, create an event handler called MenuClicked that is raised when the menu web control's (in the user control) MenuItemClicked is raised, I raise my custom MenuClicked event.Then on my master page, I can catch this event in NavMenu_MenuClicked.My problem is - I need to catch this event in my content page, not the master?Am I approaching this correctly?Thanks in advancesb

Master Page and table layout

Hi, i am in the process to learn create master page using HTML table layout.I find out many resources online that use table to design their master page layout.I have 1 thing that i do not undestand:all of them using heigh= n pixel to control their footer, header, content  and navigation menu.My concern is that by doing so, the master page is fixed to only particular resolution only.In future there might be higher resolution available, the master page design need to be changed from time to time which is considered not so good programmer.OR in future, the when site need to have something like "Best view in resolution 1024 x 768", somethign like that...Is there any other way not to do so? Are they doing their master page correctly?

Copy table (with content and links) from one page to another

Hi, I'm new to sharepoint and learning this software on my own.  I'm running WinXP Professional.  I've created a table on one page in a subfolder/directory (10Kgold) and would like to use the same table on a page in a different subfolder (24Kgold).  Both subfolders are in the same root folder.  Here are the steps I took: On 10kgold/bracelets.aspx page: right-click on element to copy --> select Copy On 24kgold/bracelets.aspx page: right-click --> Paste On the 24kgold/bracelets page, the "Paste" option was disabled, so then I knew I wouldn't be able to copy/paste the table I copied from 10K gold/bracelets page. I don't want to recreate this table again if I don't have to. Also, I've tried to copy and paste links within the same page, but that doesn't work either. Here are the steps: Select link (yellow-gold) on 10kgold/bracelets page: right-click --> Copy Scroll to where I want to paste the link Right-click (yellow-gold) on 24kgold/bracelets page: --> Paste Is there a way to copy and paste links and tables, etc. from one page to another, with the page/s being in either the same subfolder and/or a different subfolder as long as they are within the same root folder? Thanks in advance for your help.    

Problems with Master Page and content window

I have a master page whose primary function is to allow a user to search for a Credit Union.  They can either search by ID # or search by name.  With processing this page it will set session variables which in turn I would hope would be passed along to the content window. Within the content window I am displaying the information that will be needed on that particutlar page, if no record is found then it will allow them to add.  I also need it to clear the fields in the content window if they go from one record with data to one without.  Now if a user types in the ID#, then it doesn't seem to have any problems populating the content window.  The problem comes when they try and search by name.  If more then one record is returned then it will populate a listbox.  Which then I would like a user to select the name they are searching for and then populate the search boxes as well as process the content window. The problem I seem to be facing is the Page Load on the content window.  Session variables don't seem to be set in time for the content window to have the variable available to it. Hopefully you can help me out.Masterpage.master.vb Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load 'ResetValues() Me._txtCUName.Attributes.Add("onchange", "if(document

Windows 7 - WPF - Framework 3.5 - Content not displaying in developer or when running

Help. I seem to have broken WPF 3.5 on my development box.  If I bring up VS2008 and create a new, blank WPF app, it does not display the designer.  If fact, I can see the desktop wallpaper through VS 2008.  If I run the app, I get a window with the same see-through properties.  Plus if I drag the app window around, it leaves artifiacts all over the screen. If I create a new WPF 4.0 app in VS 2010 - no problem.  If I target the app to 3.5 - the designer does not go crazy, but I get the same run-time issue as with VS 2008. Please help! L.

Accessing master page controls from content page formview



I have a master page with a textbox that I want to use for a search, and display the results on the content page.

I've dragged in the datasource to the content page, and configured the formview to use that datasource... almost.

The issue I'm having is that on the last step of the configure datasource wizard where you select the parameters, I want to select the master page textbox control for the search parameter... but of course it's not available in the list. The list only allows me to choose controls from the content page.

How do I set this master page search box as the parameter for my datasource?

Any ideas would be much appreciated!
