"Connect to Outlook" - disable offline synchronization

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

Good afternoon. For legal and regulatory reasons, our company has disallowed the use of .PST files in Outlook 2007 for email archival, opting instead for a third-party solution. As they have disabled PSTs through Group Policy, our users are receiving errors when using the "Connect to Outlook" feature in SharePoint 2007 calendars, lists or libraries. Further research has revealed a way to fine-tune Group Policy such that PST usage is still limited, but the Outlook features which rely on special PSTs are not disabled.


However, our organization is also concerned with and has experienced these special PSTs growing very large, as many of the lists we are integrating with Outlook contain big attachments. I understand this is because the attachments are added into the special .PST file, where they are subsequently available for offline use. However, the number of laptop users in our company is small, and laptop users typically work through Remote Access, so offline access is almost never needed.

My question is, is there any way to use

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?

In Sync: Creating Synchronization Providers with the Sync Framework


The Sync Framework can be used to build apps that synchronize data from any data store using any protocol over a network. We'll show you how it works and get you started building a custom sync provider.

Synchronization Coverage: Code Coverage for Concurrency


As more and more multi-threaded software applications get developed, software development professionals need to adopt new tools, techniques and metrics that can deal with multi-threaded software. Synchronization coverage is a simple, practical way to do this and this article covers a prototype synchronization coverage tool for .NET, called Sync Cover.

Concurrent Affairs: Build a Richer Thread Synchronization Lock


In my last column, I showed the various thread synchronization mechanisms employed by the Microsoft® . NET Framework (see Concurrent Affairs: Performance-Conscious Thread Synchronization). I then examined the performance characteristics of all these mechanisms and determined that the Interlocked methods performed the best because the calling thread never has to transition to kernel mode.

Concurrent Affairs: Performance-Conscious Thread Synchronization


In my career, I have architected and implemented many thread synchronization techniques. This has provided me with a lot of experience that has shaped the way I now think about thread synchronization problems.

My last three Basic Instincts columns have examined techniques for using asynchronous delegates and creating secondary threads. Those columns demonstrated how to introduce multithreaded behavior into your applications.

.NET Column: Safe Thread Synchronization


By far, the most common use of thread synchronization is to ensure mutually exclusive access to a shared resource by multiple threads. In the Win32® API, the CRITICAL_SECTION structure and associated functions offers the fastest and most efficient way to synchronize threads for mutually exclusive access when the threads are all running in a single process.

Web Farms: Use Data Caching Techniques to Boost Performance and Ensure Synchronization


Performance is an important concern for any application, but becomes critical when the app is a Web Service accessed by thousands of clients simultaneously. One hardware approach to distributing Web Services requests evenly is a Web farm consisting of multiple servers. Once on a Web farm, Web Service performance can be improved by using ADO.NET DataSet objects to cache frequently accessed data, reducing round-trips to the database. Here the author describes data caching in a Web farm environment and discusses how to avoid the cross-server synchronization problems inherent in this approach.

Disable check box in a gridview does not working



I have a check box in a template field in a gridview.

Based on some condition, I want those check boxs to  be enable and disable.

I am trying the below code but does working..

 protected void GVstudents_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
              if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                    string studentID = GVstudents.DataKeys[0].Value.ToString();
                    int stdID = Convert.ToInt32(studentID);
                    int schID = profile.getSchoolIDByStudentID(stdID);
                    int tchrID = profile.getTeacherIDByStudentID(stdID);

                    if (patti.chkIsTeacherPaid(stdID, schID, tchrID))
                        CheckBox cb = (CheckBox)e.Row.FindControl("chkTeacherPayment");
                        cb.Enabled = false;

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

HTML Table Disable


I have a HTML Table that I use to place the control in so they display nicely on my Web Form.  I also use the Disable method to keep unwanted users from editing those controls based on their log in information, however I still want the information to be displayed for their review.

The information is displayed for example in the Text Boxes, however when they hit Enter on the form because the table is disabled for some reason the information is lost when I do my update to the SQL Server (the text box shows "")?

Why is it I can see the information on the screen, but the text box shows empty when hitting enter on the form?



Checkbox disable/enable


I hope someone can be kind enough to help/advise me with this.

I have a web form with multiple checkboxes on it , with one of the checkboxes as the main (controlling) checkbox.  By this I mean that when this main checkbox is checked then all the other checkboxes need to be disable and when its unchecked these other checkboxes need to be enable.

I've found (plenty of) code to do this in javascript but i would really prefer to to it in vb(.net), if possible.

I hope all this makes sense to you.


Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

Disable VS2005 Undo?


Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the Undo feature within VS2005?  I searched through the options but nothing jumped out at me.
