    The definition of the 'View Only' permissions level is as follows:

    Members of this group can view pages, list items, and documents. If the document has a server-side file handler available, they can only view the document using the server-side file handler.

    What is considered to be a server-side file handler in the context of SharePoint? Is this an HTTPHandler? What technology is it based on, how do I write one?

  • Server-side file handler is something like Excel Web Services, or HTML Viewer, I thought.

  • I think it mainly refers to ASPX files being executed on the server before returning data rather than downloading the actual ASPX file.

  • is causing this behavior? I can change the code to avoid it if I can figure out why it is happening. Is there any way through the SharePoint UI or APIs to "release" the document so that the original... into it. Either way, it then opens the file in Excel. The code to open the file is some client-side script that figures out the location of the Excel file in SharePoint, sets an href variable to that URL.... Note that this is just opening the Excel file without checking it out. Problem: Once in a while, and for no reason I can figure out, a user will click the button and the spreadsheet will be returned

  • from the server on which SharePoint is running, using the internal domain name (e.g. http://localhost:5050/site). If I view the site home page while not logged in, I can't see the webpart -- this is the correct behaviour. However, if I view the site via the public address (e.g. http://www.realaddress.co.uk:5050/site) while not logged in, I can see the webpart. (I shouldn't be able to -- it's only targeted at the 'Staff' audience'.) This happens if I'm browsing either on the SharePoint server or a remote machine. I'm a bit baffled!

  • -with-business-connectivity-services-bcs-in-sharepoint-foundation-2010.aspx But I have not seen any examples of what to do when your external SQL DB has foreign keys. For example. I have a database that has orders and customers. An order has one and only one customer and a customer can have many orders. How can I setup external content types in such a way that when in the list view of these external content types, I can jump between and possible lookup values to that other type?

  • Are Managed Metadata fields supported in the Word 2007 Document Information Panel? We are having an issue with a client where they are opening a word document in SharePoint 2010 with Word 2007 and for the Managed Metadata fields they are read only with the text saying "Edit Property on Server" Can anyone provide some insight or a solution? Cheers

  • I wonder if someone can tell me where, on a totally fresh install of WSS/MOSS 2007 on a 64bit machine, are the registry keys placed? Is it: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0 or is it: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0 (note the Wow6432Node bit in the second one.) (I ask because my dev box recently got corrupted, and the problem seems to be that while SharePoint is looking for the WSS registry key under Wow6432Node, it only exists in the other registry location. I do not know what

  • I know that in SharePoint 2007, every image inside a [Picture Library] can have a thumbnail by adding the (_t) folder and the _extension.jpg to the file name. What about if my images are stored inside a [Document Library]? is there a way to display thumbnails of those images (of course without having to download them all :)) I am working on a thumbnail view application and my images are all stored inside a Document Library.

  • and they do not work. I have found the code that I can place in the machine.config file that turns off the check, but I would like to figure out what is going on with this. I have ensured that debug is set to false in the web.config file as well. It is only my user controls that are causing the issue, but I do not know why. So it would be nice if there was a list of known .Net assembles that were... deployed to the CONTROLTEMPLATES folder on the 12 hive. The forms worked fine until the security folks said we had to enable FIPS. Once this was done, Sharepoint went nuts until I changed the machineKey

  • I've created a custom list in SharePoint 2010 from a custom content type (inherit from item) and I would like to give the users the option to order the items in this list - similar to how users can order items in an out of the box Links list. In SharePoint 2007 I did this several times by using the OrderedList property in the List element of the schema.xml, and I've tried the same approach in 2010. I also added the OrderedView property on the View element. After creating a list from this defintion, when I look at the list settings and attempt to modify a view then I see the options
