Inactive User Fields?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi,I have an LDAP query that is returning many users, some of which are no longer active with my company.  I've  been trying to find out what field marks them as inactive, but with no success yet.  I've tried msDS-UserAccountDisabled, ms-DS-UserAccountAutoLocked, msTSExpireDate.  I'm also asking our IT guys what field they use, but ...it may be a long long time before they ever get back to me:)Thanks for any help,Michael

Values in user control fields empty when AutoEventWireup=true ?

As a BizTalk developer I'm trying to build a ASP.NET website so some obvious things might be new to me (so please be gentle). I have a web form and I have a user control on it. This user control contains a panel with some user properties that are to be stored in a database. So far nothing fancy. The user control itself contains a panel and is working fine (all code to retrieve and store the values is working). I used the default settings of creating a user control and one of them was AutoEventWireup=true. This works fine because I also have some dropdown boxes (and other fields) that need to be filled with values from the database and that happens in the Page_load event. The panel specifies the 'DefaultButton' which calls a method when clicked to save the values after the user has changed them. On this click the code of the method is called, I confirmed that, but I found out that the values of my controls on the user control (for example the Textbox control) are empty. As a non-ASP.NET developer I couldn't figure out why. So I changed some settings like AutoEventWireup to false. Off course this resulted in my dropdown boxes no longer to be initially filled, but my surprise was big to find out my controls actually contained the values the user typed in. Logically I need both the values and th

How to change item user permissions by workflow using item fields


Hi, thats not a question, but solution. I have read a lot of requests about how to perform this task, so here it is.

Code behind will run workflow which will take XXZ and XXY which are user fields and assign their values as "Full acces" and "Design" user permissions to given list item.

This workflow contains two sections. onWorkflowActivated1_Invoked and SetItemPermissionsEx.

Create inactive user using the membership provider


Hello all

I have a CreateUserWizard that uses the membership provider and creates a user in a sql server database.

I need to change the IsApproved property on creation to false.

I know that it can be done by createing a custom navigation template... but then i will have to code all the checks for the creation of the user...

Is there any other way to access that attribute?

this is the aspx code:

<asp:CreateUserWizard ID="createUserWizard" runat="server" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="0.7em">
            <SideBarStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" BorderWidth="0px" Font-Size="0.9em" VerticalAlign="Top" />
            <SideBarButtonStyle BorderWidth="0px" Font-Names="Verdana" ForeColor="White" />
            <ContinueButtonStyle BackColor="#FFFBFF" BorderColor="#CCCCCC" BorderStyle="Solid"
                BorderWidth="1px" Font-Names="Verdana" ForeColor="#284775" />
            <NavigationButtonStyle BackColor="#FFFBFF" BorderColor="#CCCCCC" BorderStyle="Solid"

Issue using Managed Metadata with custom fields in the User Profiles application


Hi there,

I've created several custom properties in my User Profile Application.

I've also created several Term Sets in the Managed Metadata service application Term Store for use with these custom properties. Some of the Term Sets contain terms and have a closed submission policy whilst others have an open submission policy.

If the user hasn't already populated any of these custom fields in their profile, when they click on the Edit My Profile link from their My Site Profile page everything seems okay (for the first time).

The user is then able to successfully select values for these custom fields - the metadata is available. They can click on the "tag" icon to select values, or start typing and the suggestions appear. They are also able to enter new values into custom property fields where the term set is open to submission.

If they then Save and Close then go back into Edit My Profile, often not all of the existing data is populated in the metadata custom fields. On different occasions different fields may be blank. Sometimes this is accompanied by the error "Message from webpage / The server method 'ValidateTerms' failed", but not always.

Has anyone else tried this or have any suggestions are to what the issue might be?

Thanks in advance.

dynamic fields added/removed depending on user selection


Is it possible to dynamically add/remove fields upon creating an item in a list?

For example:
If user selects from drop down list and chooses "Booked"

and a date field name "Booked Date" will dynamically pop up underneath.

And if user selects a different choice, the date field will dissapear.

Can someone point me to anything that can be of help?

I searched around and noticed that this can be achieved via javascript using the ows.js object model?

Thank you for your help.

SQL searches based on user selectable fields


This is the second time I've searched on this and came up not fully understanding why this isn't possible. Say you have one text box, but you want to be able for a user to search by "company name,"  "job number," or "Order No," So you put one text box and a drop down list where the user can select what field to search.

Here is what I would like to do  Select [order_no], [job_no], [company_name] From [order_tbl] WHERE @var1 Like '*@var2*'  (maybe not totally correct syntax, but you get the picture....and @var1 is set from the selection of the dropdownlist and @var2 is set from the text box).

What I do now is three separate SQL statements. If DropDownlist1.SelectedValue = 1 then do, if it = 2 then do, etc.

But when you have a large select statement with table joins, you have to make any changes three times, and it seems easy to make a mistake...not to mention if you have more than three choices, you have an SQL statement for each choice.

Am I misunderstanding that it isn't possible to do a variable field name so I can have one select statement to work with?  And if it isn't possible, I just wish I could wrap my head around why, because it seems such a simple thing to do.


Visual Web part with embedded User Control, fields are null


I have a legacy ASP.Net application that consisted of a series of ascx user controls which I am attempting to convert into visual web parts.  

I have wrapped each ascx in its own visual webpart and deployed to my site. Within my site I am able to add some of these to my pages and they render properly.

The ones that I am having difficulty with are those ascx user controls that have a child reference to other custom user controls.

For example I have CustomerinfoUserControl.ascx that has many fields within the control, but one is also a custom user control to select the date called DatePicker2UserControl.asx

Here is the declaration within CustomerInfoUserControl  and usage …



Show/Hide fields on InfoPath based on context User Group Membership

I am reading a book on SharePoint 2010 Development by Wrox and although it is a good book, the InfoPath section is limited. I am Googling to see if I can find anywhere where i can perhaps have this type of functionality to hide and show a specific field based on their Group Membership?

Auto populate custom fields with values based on user selected in People Editor



I have a requirement wherein I want to populate the currently logged in user in people editor field of my custom web part and based on the user in people editor field, Also I should be able to select any other user if needed. I need to fill some other custom fields as well. I am able to get this quite easily. But suppose I remove the current logged user's name from people editor and enter some other name and then click on Check Names, then how do I change the custom fields based on the new user ?

    PeopleEditor peNameofFileRequestor = new PeopleEditor();
    TextBox txtPhoneNumber;
    TextBox txtDepartmentName;
    SPContext cnxtCurrent;

    protected override void CreateChildControls()

      cnxtCurrent = SPContext.Current;
      SPUser usrCurrent = cnxtCurrent.Web.CurrentUser;

      peNameofFileRequestor.MultiSelect = false;
      peNameofFileRequestor.SelectionSet = "User";
      peNameofFileRequestor.AutoPostBack = true;

      System.Collections.ArrayList entityArrayList = new System.Collections.ArrayList();

      entity.Key = usrCurrent.LoginName;
      entity = peNameofFileRequestor.ValidateEntity(entity);

Create user control fields based on bound properties



I am creating a user control that I would like to be able to generate the form entry fields based on what custom data object the form is bound to. Basically, I have a drop-down box that allows the user to pick what type of data object they are working with (user, address, etc.) That choice will bind the user control to the related data object. No big deal there. I am stuck, however, on how to generate the form fields based on the properties of the object. I feel like I have seen examples of this in WPF but am not able to find them now. All form fields will be simple label, textbox combinations in a stackpanel.

I know more detial will probably be required. Let me know what specifically you would like to know. Any help of direction is greatly appreciated.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control
