Once again, you can't just drop an ASP.NET application into your SharePoint server. If your company and SharePoint dept feels this is best then they all need to gain a better understanding of SharePoint. A sandbox solution has nothing to do with this context unless you are providing a SharePoint solution and wouldn't make much sense anyway as your solution would need to make use application page most likely.
A PageViewer[^] webpart would provide the functionality to link the external pages. However, any security tokens, if necessary, are not sent to the other site by default unless you have SSO configured.
Failure is not an option; it's the default selection.
I have a web application created on wss3.0 and i use LDAP (active directory) authentication to authenticate the users. But there are few users who doesnt come under the domain, but still i want them to have access with customised credentials given to them.
Eg: i have domain abc and all the members of this domain can access the appliciation. But incase, if i want a member (who is not a member in abc domain) and have gmail account, i want him to access the site with gmail account. Is there any possibility to achieve this. Kindly guide me.
I wanted to create a consolidated view of lists from muliple locations. So, I created SOAP Service Connection (in SP Designer). Then I created a Linked Data Source to link multiple lists. I was able to create a Data View and create a consolidated view.
Now the problem I have is how some of the fields are being displayed (example: Facility). In the original list it displays just the name (example: ‘Fayette’). However, in the consolidated view it displays “28;#Fayette”. I have this similar issue with three other columns. The only difference is that the other columns displays ‘float;#’ before the numeric value.
I believe this may be due to the fact that the ‘Facility’ column is actually a lookup function on the original list (with drop down). And the columns with ‘float;#’ in front of the value are actually calculations.
I used the same logic you provided for other columns that had a similar issue. The good part is the ‘2;#’ and ‘float;#’ disappeared from the Data View.
Now the one thing I’m still having trouble with is editing the calculation columns. For example I have a ‘Tonnage Capacity’ column, which is a calculation on the initial lists (tonnage capacity = pallet capacity * 1500). In my data view I am able to edit all my normal columns to a number format with 0 decimal places. However, when I format the Tonnage Capacity column to number format the values disappear. Is there a way around this?
I have just changed V4.master in shraepoint designer 2010 and saved it after that I came back and changed it to default format,
Now when I change themes for Home site (parent for all other web sites for themes)just child web sites change and the in home web site just the color of links and libraries change. I can not change the theme of home site and it is like a fixed custom design.
The masterpage used by child sites can change independent of the root masterpage, especially with publishing sites or if code has been run on the child sites, perhaps with feature stapling when the site was created.
I have inserted a dataview webpart of a list(example LIST-B) in the display form of another list(example LIST-A). Inline editing to insert new records has been enabled in this dataview.
Is it possible to autofill some of the fields in the dataview when a new record is added by retrieving parameters from LIST-A displayed in the dispform by using webpart connections. If this is possible, i request you to kindly guide me in this regards.
We have many custom asp.net applications which need user management (login, authentication, lost password, add or delete users, update profile etc.), logging (actions, search logs, connection problems etc.), content approval and content upload.
Each application is duplicating the above functionality and I want to get rid of the duplicated effort.
My question is:
Can I create 1 custom asp.net application which will use the WSS at the back end to handle most of the above? So basically I will create a web user interface and use the sharepoint sdk and database to do the aforementioned.
Or do you have some other suggestion?
Artificial Intelligence is no match for Human Stupidity.
1. SharePoint is compatible with the ASP.NET MembershipProvider, which is where *most* of the user functionality you seek lies.
2. SharePoint has lists and document libraries which you could leverage for the content functionality you mentioned.
Do take note of some of the strengths and weaknesses of sharepoint though - even if you plan to use the "free" version.
I am new to sharepoint and trying to setup development environment. I have installed windows server 2003. As WSS is embeded in Windows Server 2003 R2 which is not my case as i only have Windows Server 2003 SP2. What should i need to do to setup WSS 3.0? Simply downloading and installing WSS 3.0 will do the job?
Currently i am working on Asp.net and want to learn sharepoint.
while searching on google i didnt find the Right way to start Learning Sharepoint.
Please Guide me for the same.
should i go with the Sharepoint Admin or Sharepoint Developer?
