Check out button with only read rights

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
When a user has just read rights on a document library and he opens the document, he gets a checkout button at top. When he clicks it; the username and password is asked. He just can't login and he gets a "Cannot perform this operation. The file has been deleted or someone else has it checked out". Is there a solution to this problem? The user may not see the checkout button!!

Check-out issue when opening a document from a document library when a read-only copy is open

We have an issue when a user has a read-only copy of a document from SharePoint open and then tries to check-out and edit another copy of the document (i.e. from the document library) the checked out copy is not connected to the web server. For the user it will look the same they will make edits, save and then close, but when they do so the document is not updated in SharePoint - it may be saved locally in their SP drafts, but the user will think that they have lost their version. We then get the checked out to another user error and you have to discard changes to get the document working again. Steps to reproduce this issue: * click on the name of a office doc on a Document Library * Make sure "Read Only" is selected and click "ok" * Minimize open document * click on the same file on the Document Library * Make sure "check out and edit" is selected and the "Use my local drafts folder" checkbox is ticked. Select OK. * Edit document and press save. Changes are never saved back in SharePoint, they are only on the local draft. We are using MOSS with SP2. Clients are on Office 2003 and 2007 Is this normal behaviour? Is there anything that can be done to prevent this from happening?

Document is read-only in SharePoint, but user sees "check out" option in Office 2007 / Word / Excel

I am finding that when there is a document library in SharePoint with checkin/checkout required, if a user with read-only ("Visitor") permissions opens a document from that library, the document will open as read-only in Word, Excel, etc., but the user will see the "Server Document" bar with the message "To modify this document, you must check it out" and the "check out" button.  When the user tries to check the document out, they are asked to authenticate, and then receive the error "Cannot perform this operation.  The file has been deleted or someone else has it checked out."    How is it possible to prevent a user with read-only rights in SharePoint from seeing the "Check out" option in Word or Excel?

Not getting the Prompt in SP 2010 for "Read Only or Check Out and Edit" anymore.



     I am not getting the prompt for Read Only/edit any more, I am only able to"Open Save, cancel" when I open the file it opens in the native client in read only mode.

 Here are the specs.

Sharepoint 2010 Standard on windows 2008 64 bit. Ms Office 2007

Changes made 

  • Sharepoint server publishing Infrastructure Activated.
  • Changed the permissions to permissive to open the pdf files in the broswer.
  • Installed/Uninstalled Ms Office 2010 beta.

Any help or guidance is highly appreciated.
I had highly mentioned (edit documents/ single document only) etc to my users and now I am in a pickle.

How can i check if button clicked inside a button click event?


private void View_Log_File_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                processNotePad = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("notepad.exe", path_exe + @"\log\logger.txt");


It was easy to check it inside a checkbox event for example:


private void Show_satistics_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)


             if (Show_satistics.Checked)
                     statform = new StatisticForm();

Internal error. Buffer provided to read column value is too small. Run DBCC CHECKDB to check for any



I'm using Asp.NET 4 to perform a simple query on database.
But when navigating to page that needs data (i'm using SqlDataSource) i receive this internal error.
I already ran DBCC without error and i still have the issue.

Sql Server Standard 2005 SP4

The same query, executed from SSMS works fine.

Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

To do this you would set Operator="DataTypeCheck" and instead of setting the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare attributes as you normally would you use the Type="Date" (or any of the data types I have listed above).

Check All with JQuery and a Asp.Net GridView

Display a Grid on the screen with a checkbox in each row. At the bottom of the page have "Check All" button.

Typically if I need to do anything interesting I use a template column. So my GridView will look like the one below (most other columns removed for readability). The only interesting point to note is the CssClass="ApprovalCheckBox" in the CheckBox ItemTemplate.

Long time ago I wrote an article about getting the value of the selected RadioButtons inside the GridView control. The code did not addresssed the postback issue which means that the selected radio button was cleared after the postback occurs.

A Simple and Extensible Radio Button Style GridView

The GridView is one of the significant controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and later versions. No doubt it reduces a lot of work time. However, customizing the GridView control is not an easy task. For example, it's hard to add a radio button column to the GridView. This article demonstrates the reason why a radio button column cannot act as normal and how to create a simple and extensible radio button GridView.
