For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
Hi, we have a standard SharePoint 2007 Intranet. I would like some users to be able to edit a document however they cannot see the Site Actions -> View All Site Content. I'd rather they don't have access to edit pages, what is the best way of providing this?
I've given them access on the file itself however when they open the document and edit and save it, a message appears saying the file is read-only. Can anybody please advise/help? Thanks
I have a SharePoint Custom List Application that in some cases could go
Dashboard.aspx has a link that calls Editform_Gates.aspx with the following passing parameter values for record ID and SOURCE
The EditForm_Gates.aspx then has a couple links that call other pages to add/update children associated records
The problem I have is once you get to that third deep code if you hit cancel or save it does go back to the second page the EditForm_Gates.aspx but from there if you hit cancel or back it loses the SOURCE= from the first call and does not know where to go..
What is the proper way to dothis and if any samples or examples are out there I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in Advance
Hi. Am sure this has been asked multiple times, but I can't find an answer. I have a main site, (project control). From there we will create sub-sites, project 1, project 2, project 3 etc. On project control I then want to list the projects so users will navigate to them from there.
At certain points in a project life the project will have its permission level changed so more people can view it, ie move from level 1 to level 2.
At this point I want the project control sheet to display all of the projects that the user that is logged on can see. eg project 1 and project 2 only, they don't have the rights to view project 3 (yet).
I have set up some permissions, (all by groups) and they seem to be working, (tested on sub-site folders and dependant on who is logged on different folders are becoming visible).
I have tried creating a list on project control, but all sites are listed, how can I get it to only show the relevant permissions.
Thanks in advance.
Are you certain it is not working correctly already. We are doing a similar thing simply using a TOC web part. The results are security trimmed so depending upon the login to the main page the sub-sites displayed will vary.
I have a need for the uploader of a document to set the approval task "due date" after he publishes the document. There will be multiple approvers, hence I am using a workflow created using Sharepoint Designer.
Ideally he should be able to specify the due date, so that this can be included in the mail that goes out to the approvers.
any ideas as to how can this be done, will be greatly appreciated.
My server information:
Windows Server 2012
I created two identical workflows on 2013 & 2010 platforms which send an email to my account when a file is uploaded to a library.
On 2010 platform the workflow is fine, but on 2013 workflow platform, it's not running successfully. I don't get any email.
I have created an API with Client Identifier, Client Secrets, Auth URL and Access Token URL in Vimeo. Still searching for solution to fetch private videos from Vimeo using REST/ JSON/ JQuery.
Any help appreciated to provide some sample code to fetch private videos from Vimeo using REST/ JSON/ JQuery.
Does anyone know how to increase the width of a sharepoint date control. It seems that I can't increase it from the original date control and I'm not sure how to increase the width of it. I also want to put the icon inside the date text box and by default it is on the outside.
Here is the date control code:
<SharePoint:DateTimeControlID="dtcProjectStartDate"runat="server"DateOnly="true"/><SharePoint:InputFormCompareValidatorID="cmpPorjectStartDate"runat="server"ForeColor="Red"ErrorMessage="Please Enter Date"ControlToValidate="dtcProjectStartDate$dtcProjectStartDate"Type="Date"Operator="DataTypeCheck"BreakBefore="true"Display="Dynamic"></SharePoint:InputFormCompareValidator>
using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://appes-pc/my/personal/dotnet")) // Site Collection
using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb()) // Site
SPList list = web.Lists["My Contacts"]; // Listint i = 1;
foreach (SPListItem item in list.Items)
Console.WriteLine("Item: " + (i++).ToString());
in the current project, the client request advance search which enable the user to type search keyword and specify date range and choose the the entity type to search in (entity type like news , events , image gallery, document library, etc .........nearly, all the modules of the project)
so, i'm trying to implement this by the SharePoint out of the box features
i know that advanced search web part had been removed starting form SharePoint 2013
Can a SharePoint WFE be added to a farm to host unique web applications that are not part of the existing farm?
We have a test farm which currently hosts our flagship product and other supporting web applications for testing. Can a 2nd WFE be added to the farm to host a distinct/unique separate version of one or more of those apps?
Our goal is to create an area where we can test upgraded versions of the integrated analytics product and support controls (eg- latest version of infragistics). The reason for the 2nd WFE is to have a different GAC for these products and our own to keep things segregated.
We are migrating user's mailbox to cloud and we have script for that. We want to create a page on sharepoint and delegate access to the users that they can accept the terms and when they submit the request workflow trigger the script to move their mailboxes on cloud.
Is there any way through which we can trigger the powershell script through workflow.
We have an OLAP project which uses Sharepoint 2013 Excel Services to show excel files that contains external data from SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) cube. Our Authentication method to login users is FBA (Forms Based Authentication)
Our Goal is to show only subset of data from SSAS cube for each user based on their role which has already been defined in SSAS side.
FBA authenticates users against AD and all authorized user are already member of respective role in SSAS based on their clearance level. We need Excel Services passes EffectiveUserName to SSAS and for that we enabled the EffectiveUserName in global settings of Excel Services on SharePoint central admin.
Than in Excel, we have enabled the Windows Authentication in the Excel Service Authentication Settings of Connection Properties as we read on some blog posts. But after accessing it via the SharePoint, the following error occurred.
"The data connection uses Windows Authentication and user credentials could not be delegated." As I already stated, I don't want to delegate user credentials to SSAS. It's already been configure for Excel Services to use single account to connect to Analysis Services. I only want to pass EffectiveUserName.
Using windows authentication is not an option because users access the site from extranet and internet
Everything works fine until it gets to the extended properties of the webpart. Within that logic, the panel title will set correctly. This is a direct string assignment to the custom property. However, the CSPUElevel and PanelType are dropdowns and the assignment is never made. What is more interesting is that the CSPUElevel and PanelType don't seem to be exposed as custom properties in the same way as the Panel Title. In other words, the test for $prop.Name is never equal to "CSPUElevel" or "PanelType".
I am new to SharePoint and need to allow a SharePoint portal to load my asp .net application into the portal from the application server where I have hosted the asp .net application. I think I can use a SharePoint WebPart page viewer to do this by assigning the application URL to the page viewer. I don't know if this will allow the SharePoint user's to use the fully functional asp .net application or will it just show a specific web page and not allow the user to use the full functionally of the website. Can someone help?
