  • What features are you most looking forward to in SharePoint 2010? Phill Duffy

    I am personally looking forward to seeing what people can create with the Client Object Model.

    One answer per post please

  • The new Ribbon Control.

  • Compliant HTML. Hoping for no more tables used for layouts!

  • An XSLT List View Web Part as explained here. Haven't spent many difficult hours adding custom behaviour to the existing CAML-based LVWP, I'm very happy to see it bite the dust.

  • Claims-based authentication...say no more...

  • Access Services - Will this allow SP to create more flexible DB apps?
    Multilingual features - Looking for a MUCH better story than MOSS2007

  • Browser independence - bringing up Firefox and Safari to the same level as IE.

  • Better tools for developing in Visual Studio! Worst nightmare is it will just be another VSeWSS v.1.something

  • Business Connectivity Services, and in 2010 it will be available in Sharepoint Foundation so it will be for free.

    This blog post sums it up pretty good.

  • SandBox Solutions

  • Silverlight Webparts and AJAX funvtionalities all over . .

  • then navigate to any other page, and then click BACK or FORWARD I get an error message that says "Webpage has expired". Note that my web.config entry is: <httpRuntime executionTimeout="43200... AJAX fileupload control. Implementing the fileupload (Uploading attachments functionality) within a pop up window. So what do you think? Is there any way to fire an event which it re-loads/refresh the web page (Which has my web part) whenever user clicks on BACK or FORWARD ?

  • I currently have enabled the MOSS Enterprise publishing infrastructure feature on an existing site collection that was just a collaboration team site without publishing. When I enable, the horizontal scroll bar is need to see the complete contents that formerly appeared without issue using the collaboration portal without publishing enabled. When I deactivate the feature we are back to normal. What is causing my layout to do this? Do I now have to republish pages? I do want to go ahead and utilishing the publishing infrastructure going forward.

  • How can I get the selected language in the screenshot, from inside of a webpart? alt text http://thomasstock.net/currentlanguage.png I'm using SharePoint 2010. My webpart is a "visual web part" created in VS2010. I'm trying things like SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.RegionalSettings and SPContext.Current.Web.Language" but ofcourse these things have nothing to do with that setting. :-| Can someone please help me? What property am I looking for.

  • " type="string" /> <property name="ContentTypeBeginsWithId" type="string" /> Does anyone know if these can take multiple values and if so what is the format? Are there any other implications to be aware of i.e. do the content types need the same site columns for the fields you want to display? I'm looking to do this in SP2010 but would be interested to know if the same applied for MOSS.

  • I have a request for a migration project. My client has a mechanism for Wikis. So they are looking at the feasibility of migrating existing data from wiki onto SharePoint site server. So how can I start off with this project?

  • not. What should I be looking for? What could I have customized? Our admin does not yet have the latest service pack installed, nor do I get much of anything out of them support wise.

  • I'm curious if anyone has seen any guidance/best practices on developing web parts that can work for both SP2007 & SP2010 with minimal conversion? They wouldn't take advantage of any new 2010 functionality. Rather, I'm thinking about forward migration - taking parts written for 2007 and ensuring that they can run on 2010. Recompilation to target new SP DLLs is OK but I'd rather not maintain two completely separate code branches.

  • it to the default.aspx home page. I would be happy either way. Note: I want to be able to activate this on existing site, I dont want to create a new Site Definition. Here is what I have tried: Feature Receiver... Module: I think this is the most likely path forward, however it seems to always want to provision a file to the site. For example, if I want to add a web part to the home page (default.aspx

  • I'm looking for a program, feature or timerjob that checks links on SharePoint 2010 Publishing-Sites and Hyperlink-Lists if they are alive. The Out-of-the-box link scanner of SharePoint checks only internal links. I need one that checks external links, too. I tried non SharePoint link checkers, but they won't work with the SharePoint authentification. I found SharePoint Link Checker on CodePlex and it sounds about right, but seems to work only with SharePoint 2007. Any tools I should check out?
