Search result link goes to page but not tab on page

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
I have a sharepoint page that has a java tab control on it to represent sub categories of the page content. Say the 3rd tabs content is about commissions. Now I'm on another page and use search and type "commissions" and see it in the results. When I click that link it brings me to the main page that has the tabs, but not to the tab about commissions. Is there a way to make it go to the specific tab?

How to Transfer Search Result/Gridview onto a different page?


Hello Everyone,

I am new at this VB/Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2010 Express thing. I am amaze that I even got this far and thatI manages to make this search page work. Below is the code and picture for this search page. It's working. However I want to transfer the result/the gridview onto a second page Result.aspx. But I tries all kind of thing and it just doesn't seem to want to cooperate with me. If anyone can give me some hint/some sample codes on how I might be able to transfer controlfrom one page onto another. That would be greatly appreciated. And if you can please be as detail as possible - I am extremely newat this, and just have to learn it from a class extra credit project. Thank you in advance. -Also in the picture above I am using a direct connection to an Access database not the ObjectDataSource. I was just playing around with it to see which is better. But I ended up going with direct connection to Access database.



<%@ Page Language="VB" ClassName="SenderClass" EnableSessionState="True" %>


<script runat="server">

Open a custom page on click of a result from Search Result screen



We are in process of designing the architecture of our sharepoint application. We have a tweeky requirement.

From the default search results page, if user click on one of the result, a custom page should open which not only display the actual result text but this page should have the concatenated string of text from some other items.

For instance:

there are 2 lists:

List A with an item with text "Design: Complex hierarchy"

and List B with an item with text "Design: Hello"

If user searched "Complex" then a click on the result on search results page should open a page with this content

"Design: Complex hierarchy (tab)(tab...) Design:Hello"

Any solution or direction is welcome.


Link goes to next page but url doesn't change?


I have a text input to get a 'roomID' and an ASP button that calls an 'enterRoom' function:

roomID:<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="roomID"></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Enter Room!" OnClick="enterRoom" />

In my head tags I have my enterRoom Sub:
    <script runat="server">
        Sub enterRoom(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
            Server.Transfer("users/room.aspx?roomID=" & Request.Form("roomID"))
        End Sub

Now when I click that button it essentially goes to the right page in all ways but the URL stays as my default.aspx instead of changing to users/room.aspx?roomID=23423. I've tried it in IE and Firefox with the same results. Is this something I'm not understanding about Server.Transfer or why is this happening and how do I fix it?

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.

Currently when a user attempts to conduct an advance search they recieve a page not found message. When I tried to conduct a search myself I was able to enter in my search term, but the search results came up as page not found. On closer inpection I noticed that it is droping part of the URL.


http://sitesp.ca/sites/PETL-EPFT/searchcenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx becomes http://sitesp.ca/sites/PETL/searchcenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx

Has anyone seen this before? Any help would be greatly appreaciated.


Customizing Search Results page in MOSS

QueryEx (Search) results and Custom Page Index


Hi All,

I done a web part which allow the user to query the search.asmx. It return the result fine against which I apply some xslt. However I need a mean to create a Page index. I only return the result based on a range defined in the query.

I need somehow to obtain the number of result the search is returning in total against what I only want to display on the screen.

The only way I sort of figure to do that is by first make a search just to obtain the number of result it will return in total and then make a search defining a range.

Has someone done something similar?


Trying to get to a page via an email link. Could the sitemap be stopping this?


I had this working.  I would email a link to a page (i.e. Work.aspx), and using the code below, the user would be routed to the login page and then sent  to Work.aspx after logging in.

But since I added a site map this isn't working.  I always go directly to my home page.  If I set Work.aspx as my start page in VS it works, but not if I click a link in the email.

Any thoughts?

Long execution times for Search pages even after 4th or 5th user has accessed the same page.

Hi Guys We have a Sharepoint 2010 farm with two NLB web fronts ends, a Index server and a two box SQL cluster. The same problem also occurs on a dev box which has Sharepoint 2010 and SQl server running on the same single box. When a user access the search or advanced search page we get long execution times of between 15 and 30 seconds.  The strange thing is that the user will have a slow response the first time, then they are fine for a period of an hour or two and then they hit the slow response again.  Below i have copied info from the developer dashboard.  Does anyone have a suggestion of where to start tackiling this issue.

Why does RowLock result in a Page Lock

Hi, I am having a problem where even though I have indicated a rowlock it results in a page lock and a subsequent process is unable to access the table till the first process has commited.   Sample code is below.   Process 1 Begin Transaction SELECT EmpName FROM fEmployee WITH (ROWLOCK) WHERE EmpNo = 1 PRINT fEmployee.EmpName -- will print 'Sam' UPDATE fEmployee SET EmpName = 'Bob'  WHERE EmpNo = 1 .... .... .... Lots of other related processing takes place here and then finally COMMIT TRANSACTION Process 2 Begin Transaction SELECT EmpName FROM fEmployee WITH (ROWLOCK) WHERE EmpNo = 2 PRINT fEmployee.EmpName -- will print 'Rick' UPDATE fEmployee SET EmpName = 'Paul'  WHERE EmpNo = 2 .... .... .... Lots of other related processing takes place here and then finally COMMIT TRANSACTION When I run process 1 and process 2 at the same time, till process 1 commits the transaction, process 2 does not perform the Select and print the name. Why is this the case as they are both selecting different records and the Select has specifically indicated a RowLock. What I noticed was that when the rows are in the same page this problem occurs, while if the records are in different pages (assuming the data is large in the table and the gap between the empno's are large) it does not occur. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Search results page showing random characters instead of item's description

I have an email-enabled document library that a few Japanese people email PDF files into (all external to the company). When I search for any PDF file sent from particular email addresses, the search results page displays random characters instead of the item's description. Here is an example: From Screen shots These characters don't appear for all email senders, just some of them. Our MOSS site is in English and we don't have any language packs installed. The PDF file contents are also in English. Can anyone point me towards a solution for this?
