What is SharePoint List Base Type

Posted By :volvo     Posted Date :November 27, 2013    Points :40   Category :SharePoint 
A list has one specified base type, which is one of the following:
Base Type Name Value
Generic List 0
Document Library 1
Discussion Board 3
Survey 4
Issue 5
An implementation should not have a list with a base type of 3.

If you are using C language to implement the heterogeneous linked list, what pointer type will you use?

  
The heterogeneous linked list contains different data types in its nodes and we need a link, pointer to connect them. It is not possible to use ordinary pointers for this. So we go for void pointer. Void pointer is capable of storing pointer to any type as it is a generic pointer type. (More...)

Describe the difference between a list and a library in sharepoint?

  
Lists are collections of metadata or columns, that can have attached documents. Libraries are collections of documents (Excel, InfoPath, Word, etc.) plus optional metadata. (More...)

How to Update SharePoint List Items without Creating New Versions?

  
SystemUpdate method avoids updating modified and modifier fields.
here is the sample below.
SPSite site = new SPSite("http://mossportal/");
SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();
SPList leaveslist = web.Lists["My Leaves"];
SPListItem collection = leaveslist.Items[0];
collection["Earned_x0020_Leaves"] = "1";
collection.SystemUpdate(false);
collection.Update(); (More...)

Can a list definition be derived from a custom content type?

  
Yes, a list definition can derive from a content type which can be seen in the schema.XML of the list definition in the element. (More...)

What are the two base classes a WebPart you are going to use within SharePoint 2007 can inherit from?

  
There are two base classes that a WebPart which is going to be consumed by SharePoint can inherit from, either the
SharePoint WebPart Base class
or the
ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart base class.
When inheriting from the SharePoint WebPart Base class your derived WebPart class will inherit from Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart. When inheriting from the ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart base class your derived WebPart class will inherit from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart. It is considered good practice to use the ASP.NET WebPart base class since the old base class is meant for backwards compatibility with previous version of SharePoint, however there are four exception when it is better to leverage functionality from the SharePoint WebPart base class:
Cross page connections
Connections between Web Parts that are outside of a Web Part zone
Client-side connections (Web Part Page Services Component)
Data caching infrastructure
(More...)

How do you return SharePoint List items using SharePoint web services?

  
In order to retrieve list items from a SharePoint list through Web Services, you should use the lists.asmx web service by establishing a web reference in Visual Studio. The lists.asmx exposes the GetListItems method, which will allow the return of the full content of the list in an XML node. It will take parameters like the GUID of the name of the list you are querying against, the GUID of the view you are going to query, etc.
Side Question: I got asked how I built queries with the lists.asmx web service. In order to build queries with this service, one of the parameters that the GetListItems method exposes is the option to build a CAML query. There are other ways to do this as well, but that was how I answered it. (More...)

When retrieving List items using SharePoint Web Services, how do you specify explicit credentials to be passed to access the list items?

  
In order to specify explicit credentials with a Web Service, you generally instantiate the web service, and then using the credentials properties of the Web Service object you use the System.Net.NetworkCredential class to specify the username, password, and domain that you wish to pass when making the web service call and operations.

What is the use of UpdateOverWriteVersion method in Sharepoint List?

  
This method updates the list item without creating another version. If we use Update Method it will create the versions.

What are safe controls, and what type of information, is placed in that element in a SharePoint web.config file?

  
When you deploy a WebPart to SharePoint, you must first make it as a safe control to use within SharePoint in the web.config file. Entries made in the safe controls element of SharePoint are encountered by the SharePointHandler object and will be loaded in the SharePoint environment properly, those not will not be loaded and will throw an error.
In the generic safe control entry (this is general, there could be more), there is generally the Assembly name, the namespace, the public key token numeric, the typename, and the safe declaration (whether it is safe or not). There are other optional elements. (More...)
