Change Announcement Web Part Character Limit Display

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I’ve change the number of characters displayed on Announcement web part in my default.aspx.

I’ve change it by changing the value of Limit Len from 250 to 10000.

But when I tried toput more than 10000 characters on an announcement it doesn’t limit the characters shown to 10000.

Can anyone help me with this.. Thanks...

How do I adjust the word/character limit in Announcement web parts?


So In 2007 there was a default limit of 250 characters in annoucement web parts, that could be adjusted via the "Limit Len=" in designer, but I do not see anything close to that in 2010 and that limit is simply too small for real use.

I have the following text "Items focused on helping you develop and implement strategies are included on this page.  If you are looking for either the Strategic Solutions Team (SST) or the Sales Resource Hub...you found it!  We will continue to refine and add materials to Strategy to help you win...period!"

That gets cut off with half a sentence to go.  Honestly, who is the genius who put such a small limit on this web part and then removed the only way to adjust it via designer? 



Change part of a page without full postback


I have a page with two columns. Initially, the left column will contain a list of links that are article titles. Clicking on one of the links will display the text of the article in the right column, keeping the list of titles in the left column. Clicking on another title will clear the text of the first article and display the second. Is there a way to accomplish this without having to repaint the whole page? I would rather not have the whole page resent each time a title is clicked, but rather have the page stay as is and only the contents of the right column get cleared and redisplayed. I assume there's a way to do this with JavaScript, but I don't know how and would appreciate some help. Thanks!

Data form web part not displaying - Unable to display this Web Part. ....



I am designing a data form - adding some formatting etc.  I am able to see the webpart correctly in SPD split view, but when I trying to preview it, it gives me the following error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
ANy help would be welcome, I have spent a lot of time on this page and don't want to do it again.  THere are a lot of fields and it's a tedious process to move them to the correct location.  I am at my wits end, I am not sure how to debug this!!

Cannot change value of pre-populated textbox in web part

I have a user control inside a web part. I am pre-populating a textbox in the Page_Load event in the code behind of the user control. The value I am pre-populating is a value the user previously entered. The value is pulled from a sharepoint list. We want the user to be able to change this value if they need to. No matter how many times I change the value in this field, it keeps the pre-populated value. It will not save the new value back to the list. The list item is being saved, but only with the pre-populated value. If I remove the line of code that pre-populates the textbox from the page_load event, then I can change the field without issue. Since I have little experience with using user controls, I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Should I be pre-populating this field in another event?

In data view web part - how to display document name with link that opens lookup document rather tha

I have a list with a lookup column to create relationships with documents in a separate library. I am creating a data view web part to display each item in the list.

Now I am only managing to display the document name linked to opening the document's display form of the related document library, and then I have to click the document's name there to open it. Alas one unnecessary click too many. Any wize tips? Henning

Using a List View web part to display documents from multiple document libraries from different site

Hi there, I am trying to have one web part display documents (or list items) from different document libraries (or different lists) from different site collections. I have achieved this under a single site collection using Data View Web Part (using SPD). I have also achieved displaying a single document library (or a list) from a different site collection by using List View Web Part. but I am not sure how to get my head around displaying documents or list items from different document libraries or lists across site collections. I have thought of using SPSiteDataQuery or ListViewByQuery, but they all seem to focus one site collection at a time. If any of you have done this before, please share your best practice on this one with me. Much appreciated. Clark
