May 31, 2008

I moduli realizzati attraverso InfoPath 2007 offrono piene funzionalità anche tramite browser, una volta pubblicati attraverso gli InfoPath Forms Services…

    Content Query Web Part + Roller (extended Content Query Web Part with marquee)

    May 27, 2008

    From Meron Fridman’s Blog.

    Few montes ago someone asked me about display the content by query webpart as roller (marquee) style. To achieve that goal with the xslt is a problematic solution. So I extended the CQWP with my custom toolpart and override the way it renders. Yesterday I saw that Steven Van de Craen publish his extension to the CQWP as GroupByItemLimitWebPart (extended Content Query Web Part with item limit per group) . So I decided to share my extension for the most useful webpart that shipped with MOSS 2007. I reorganized the code to the same standards as Stevan’s (I like his style…) so you can merge the two webparts more easily.

    I attach the solution with the full source code so feel free to change it or to add more functionality.  

    (You should only to change the “start browser with url” property to your server\host header value in vs project properties –> debug tab. And then right click on the project –> deploy).

    SharePoint RSS Reader Web Part

    May 22, 2008
    • AJAX enabled, which means fast page load times even if you have a dozen or more RSS Reader web parts on the page!
    • Good alternative to the MOSS RSS Viewer Web Part if you haven’t purchased MOSS or the site you’re deploying to is a WSS site.
    • Deploys with a SharePoint solution file – no Ajax framework dependencies!
    • Uses XSLT to render the feed, so it is very easy to customize what/how the data is presented!
