Custom actions and URL tokens when working with the Ribbon

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I'm trying to add a new item to the Ribbon using a custom action in a VS SP2010 project. The new action shows up where we want it but the problem we are facing is that tokens like {ItemId} or {SelectedItemId} are not parsed when used in the CommandAction attribute. I would like to use these tokens and construct a URL pointing to an application page we've created. In the same way one can do using UrlAction when adding custom actions to the ECB menu (this is working fine in our project). The custom action below simply prints out different tokens. When run it seems like the tokens {SiteUrl},{SelectedListId} and {SelectedItemId}are parsed but for me both SelectedListId and SelectedItemId are null. Are there any other tokens that can be user or is there a better way to get hold of the item and list for the context? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"> <CustomAction Id="{1f2da003-2069-4d4a-8fc5-1deeb98ecdda}" Location="CommandUI.Ribbon" Sequence="20"> <CommandUIExtension> <CommandUIDefinitions> <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.ListForm.Display.Manage.Controls._children"> <Button Id="{ca157255-5ef3-4f1c-bcb6-6ff5ff7610fe}" Command="{7887e42e-

Adding Custom Actions to Ribbon UI in InfoPath forms

  
Hi experts, - I have a custom List in my site. - I have modified the default SharePoint List forms (DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx and NewForm.aspx) using InfoPath 2010, changes being related to the layout of input controls. - Then I wish to add a custom action (a print button - for printing based on modified layout) in the Ribbon Control of these InfoPath modified forms (i.e. displayifs.aspx, editifs.aspx, newifs.aspx). - I am doing the following http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2010/02/19/adding-custom-actions-to-the-ribbon-ui-in-sharepoint-2010-using-sharepoint-designer-2010/ but i guess, it only forms for the SharePoint List forms and not the Infopath modified forms. Any suggestions on how to add a custom action of 'Print' on the Ribbon UI of the list forms. Is there any other better approach? Kindly advise. -Pallz.

SharePoint Designer: insert custom list not working anymore

  

Hello,

Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.

It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).

Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they say.

I also tried the solutions listed here: http://blogs.msdn.com/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx
But they don't fix the problem.

So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.

Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

  
I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi

SSRS custom security extension behind a router fire wall not working

  
I have a instance of SSRS 2008 installed (we are not using IIS) with custom security extension which accepts a application user ID and password and sends back a sql authorization cookie back to client for logging into SSRS.  The (SSRS) server is behind a router,  SSRS is configured on port 81,  Port 81 in router if forwarded to the SSRS server. Here is the problem If I am inside the router firewall (RDP'ed to the machine) I am able to access report server (http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx:81/ReportServer) and reports manager (http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx:81/Reports) without any issues. If  am outside the firewall and try to go to report server page (http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx:81/ReportServer) from browser and try to login it works (I am getting the cookie back and authentication goes through fine).   But if I try to access reports manager (http://xx.xxx.xxx.xx:81/Reports) the login page shows up when I enter user ID and password and hit enter to authenticate it comes back to the login screen (I am not gettint the cookie back from SSRS). Any help is highly appreciated on how to debug /fix this issue. Note : if I first login to Reportserver (which sends the cookie back) and in the same session I login to Reports Manager I am able to get into Reports Manager page since I got the cookie when I logged in to reports server page already.  When I

Create 2 custom actions as one

  
Hi, In the custom actions in SharePoint designer 2010 it's possible to set: Navigate to a form / start a workflow / navigate to a url. Is it possible to set in one custom action: start a workflow and then navigate to a url...? (i want to start a workflow which create a wiki page and then navigate to this new page, all in one custom action. i didn't find a way to do those 2 steps in a workflow, since it may create the page but it doesn't open it... and on the other hand i didn't find a way to set a URL which creates the new page in the wiki library...) thanks!

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha

WPF Ribbon - Remove from QAT not working

  
I've managed to get everything working the way I want it with the Microsoft WPF ribbon, but one thing eludes me - I can't remove items from the QAT once they're added. Is this perhaps due to my templating?   I've set the following ItemTemplate for the QAT: <ribbon:RibbonQuickAccessToolBar.ItemTemplate> <DataTemplate> <ribbon:RibbonButton Label="{Binding Path=DataContext.Label}" SmallImageSource="{Binding Path=DataContext.SmallIconPath}" LargeImageSource="{Binding Path=DataContext.LargeIconPath}" ToolTip="{Binding Path=DataContext.ToolTip}" Margin="0,-3,0,0" Command="{Binding Path=DataContext.Command}" /> </DataTemplate> </ribbon:RibbonQuickAccessToolBar.ItemTemplate> I can't seem to get it to display properly without the binding to my DataContext's DataContext. What I am doing is binding the itemssource of my RibbonTab to a viewModel and applying the following templates: <DataTemplate DataType="{x:Type Commands:CommandViewModel}"> <ribbon:RibbonButton Label="{Binding Label}" SmallImageSource="{Binding SmallIconPath}" LargeImageSource="{Binding LargeIconPath}" ToolTip="{Binding ToolTip}"

Custom SPD workflow actions not showing in prod enviornment

  
We have developed some SharePoint designer workflow actions and in our production enviornment we get the behavior where the Custom actions show up in the actions list but when select the associated sentence text with paramters is not displayed.  We have double (and triple) checked that the actions files and the assembly signatures match - the SAME files have been installed in another environement and everything works. We believe we have tracked it down to when SharePoint Designer makes a call to the site collection web service webpartpages.asmx - GetAssemblyMetaData the client machine (with SharePoint Designer running) is not getting a full response to this call.  Any thoughts / ideas are appriciated!  Rob Roach
