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

Hi,

   I have a library with workflow, I've use SPD for display this library in sub site (by exported webpart). But the problem is, workflow status column(in webpart, in sub site) is blank, it doesn't show anything. How can I display workflow status in this case?

Dataview Webpart - display document type icon with status

  
Hello, I recently came across an excellent post by Marc Anderson on how to surface the document icon within a DVWP. http://sympmarc.com/2008/09/10/displaying-the-document-type-icon-in-a-dvwp-in-sharepoint/ What I wanted to know is has anyone any knowledge of how to extend this so that the icon will reflect if a document is checked out? Thank you for your comments and thoughts. Sincerely, Tim

How to make the Workflow Status remain "In Progress" when a task is "Rejected"

  

Hi Sir/Mam,

I have a work flow running on a list, when a task is Rejected at a stage then the Workflow status is set to "Completed". Instead of this I want the Status to remain as "In Progress", so that in future after the modification of the document the Approver may Approve it and then take it to the next stages. This is not possible if the Workflow is set to "Completed".

Can you please suggest an easy way to do this

Thanks in Advance

Change the Workflow Status through code

  

HI Folks,

I have a scenario where i need to develop a 6 stage approval workflow(sequential) using WWF and depoly it to sharepoint. Everythigns fine till here.

Now we look ahead to change the Status field on the documents library which actually has the Workflow Name as the column name and its value being In Progress, depending on the stage of approval. Like(Approved 1, Approved 2, Approved 3.)

And if rejected the status should be rejected than Completed. Any idea how can we update this column of the List item.

I have tried item[workflowProperties.Workflow.ParentAssociation.Name]="Approved 1";

But this throws an error saying input string is not in a correct format.

Any information would be of great help :)

Thanks

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow

  

In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.

In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details

SPD workflow status show "starting" when I create a document from the library !!. and hangs

  
I have a document library in MOSS 2007. Have created a WF and that starts "autmatically when new item created" In the document library I have created couple of column those are mandatory (required columns) and user has to fill those column while uploading a document as well creating a document from library. WF has ran and completed succefully  when I use "upload" option to load a document.  As you are aware, when we "upload" a document, we will have to fill all "required columns" and the click "check in" command button.  After I do all this, document get loaded and WD ran succesfully. However, the WF is not running when I create a document (.docx) from this library (using "new" button) !!.  I have filled all required field in the document information panel . After save & exit from WORD application, I can see WF status as "starting". But, it never started and completed.  So I did following and found WF worked !! a) After creating document (.docx) using "new" option I found WF status "starting"!. So,  I did "Check-out and Check-in" manually from document library. After doing this,  WF ran and status has been changed as "completed" b) In SPD, I change workflow start option from "Automatic" to "Manually start".&nb

How to get SPPageStatusSetter to actually display a status message

  
I have a event listener running on a list, with several possible conditions.  I want to use the status bar to update the user as a case happens.  I thought, that since the code is a event reciever/listener, that this would be considered server side code, and to make something appear on the status bar, I can use the SPPageStatusSetter.AddStatus method to show the message.  Yet, when I put in the method parameters, nothign  happens. (I did a statusbar= new SPpageStatusSetter(), statusbar.AddStatus("caller", "messgae", Yellow)) What am I missing?  Is this not considered server-side code, and I should use the other mechanism to set the status bar?  or? thanks rsRocky Sanders

OOTB Approval Workflow - Approval status could not be updated

  
I've setup up a standard OOTB (out of the box) approval workflow on a Pages library, in order to manage the approval of all pages created and updated.  This operates as expected, and the users are mostly happy, execpt for one scenario: Once a page has been submitted for approval, if the approver wants to edit the page, it stops the workflow (after prompting) which then requires the workflow to be started again.  They would like it so the approver can edit and then approve, without restarting the whole workflow process. There is a setting in the approval workflow configuration of the 'Complete the Workflow' section in the 'Cancel this Workflow when the' area, and by unchecking the 'Document is changed' option, I believe this should enable approvers to edit the page and then approve the page, without stopping the workflow  However, the workflow appears to operate as expected, except the page does not automatically get approved.  By looking in the workflow history, I can see the following error: Post-completion activity performed. Approval status could not be updated. I've tried this on two separate MOSS 2007 Enterprise farms, both are publishing sites and I'm running as a site collection administrator, both with the same results. Is anyone else getting this, is this normal?! Is there another way to approach this, without having to go

Hi ,

  Since two days I am facing weired error from simple workflow. I have created a simple infopath form and WF (in SPD). Workflow starts normally and ends also. But when I click the status link "completed" it just throws an 'unknown error' page. It used to work few days back and suddenly stopped. I canno't see the the log or any status. Other workflows in other site collections work fine.  

The link to the page is :http://servername/_layouts/WrkStat.aspx?List={656C7595-C056-483A-8058-C2402BC78B9C}&WorkflowInstanceID={8ac46ac9-aae0-434d-a3ea-f8125f08df96}

Exception Type: System.NullReferenceException Exception Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Any help ??

Approval Workflow does not update the Content Approval status if started automatically

  

Hi,

I’m using a simple Approval Workflow associated with Content Approval on site pages. It works fine when I set it to be started manually (by using Allow this workflow to be manually started by an authenticated user with Edit Item permissions  option) and on the completion of the workflow the Content Approval status is updated accordingly. But when I set it to be started automatically (by using Start this workflow when a new item is created  / Start this workflow when an item is changed options), it does not updates the Content Approval status. Note that I’ve set the Update the approval status after the workflow is completed (use this workflow to control content approval) option to true.

Workflow keeps status Starting

  

Hi,

We use SharePoint 2007 in our organisation, and are developing some simple Workflows with SharePoint Designer.
The thing is that, even the most simple workflows, are not running consistent. Sometimes the workflow goes
from 'in process' to 'completed', but mostly the status of the workflow keeps 'Starting'

I read many forums about this isseue, but stiil I have no idea what i'm doing wrong. Somewhere I got the tip
to put a delay in the action of the workflow, but the result is not satisfied.

Can someone give me a tip?

With kind regards,
Jurgen
