Silverlight in SharePoint web parts

Are you using SharePoint and want to know how to leverage Silverlight?  Have you seen the Blueprints project on Codeplex?  But what if those particular implementations don’t meet your needs and you want to create your own contained web part with your Silverlight 2 application? Kirk Evans writes about a method of doing this in a recent post: Hosting Silverlight in SharePoint.  Take a look at Kirk’s post with a step-by-step guide of getting started with his method.  In looking at the method he describes, it is conceivable that you actually could make a more generic web part that...

FeedReader web part 3.0.0.2

For those of you who use my RSS FeedReader Web Part for SharePoint, it has been updated into an ‘official’ release for the project.  Version 3.0.0.2 is now the latest release.  It incorporates all the changes from our team’s contributor, Ryan – thanks Ryan!!!  You can read the checkin on the Codeplex site or review this previous post for Ryan’s checkin notes. As always, the source code is included on the site, licensed under the Ms-Pl. There has been some emails/work items/debate over the installer.  The installation is two parts: ...

SharePoint guide for Visual Studio Extensions released

Silverlight for Sharepoint

I've gotten a few requests from internal local sales teams, Sharepoint professionals and developers about how to implement Silverlight in Sharepoint.  I usually try to explain that since Sharepoint is essentially an ASP.NET application it is relatively simple to implement.  Of course, that usually doesn't help :-).  What helps is some documentation and samples that show how you would use Silverlight to enhance a Sharepoint experience. As a part of the Software+Services Blueprints series, a new bundle has been made available to download to provide guidance and source code to help provide some information.  In the blueprint you'll get: ...

New power tools for Office development

If you develop Office applications, then hopefully you've seen some of the great improvements for developing Office applications using Visual Studio 2008.  I recently spoke about these at an event in Denver and demonstrated some of the capabilities. Of the many new features in streamlining the process for creating Office applications, there are two that required some extra hoops.  Now granted they are minor, but if you are doing a lot of Open Office XML and Ribbon customization, it was a bit of a snare to always refer back to other applications and documents for reference. Well, the Office team has released...

feedreader gets a contribution

feedreader, my sharepoint web part originally built for sharepoint 2003, has been consumed by quite a few people (which i think is cool -- it is a rare moment when a lowly d00d like me can fill a gap).  while sharepoint 2007 has better built-in support for syndicated feeds (actually 2003 did already with the xml web part), i still think feedreader has some advantages that can be leveraged. a while back i put feedreader on codeplex, an open source sharing ground.  i used the microsoft public license so anyone can download, alter, and profit from the code.  i did this...

arizona sharepoint user group starting

over the past 6 months i've received numerous questions whether or not a user group for sharepoint existed in arizona.  it didn't (there was one but it drizzled away), but i'm happy to announce that some volunteers rallied to start another one.  they have set a date for their first meeting or the arizona sharepoint professionals group. here's the information i have: Date:  Thursday, 31 JAN 2008 Time: 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM Locations: University of Advancing Technology, 2625 W Baseline Rd, Tempe, AZ they are asking people to register (not sure why) so if you plan on attending, please do register for them.  you...

join us for a big dev event

miss the days of devdays?  me too.  my team is trying to bring a little of that spark back!  joe shirey on my team has organized a full-day of developer and architect goodness.  we'll be hosting two events, one in the phoenix, arizona metro area and one in the denver, colorado metro area.  here's the gist: keynote: microsoft patterns and practices is being shipped in to talk about what they've produced and the logic behind it! developer track: exposing and consuming data using the microsoft stack (rob bagby): take a look...

MOSSDevCamp in chi town

the concepts of these 'devcamps' seem to be a winning formula.  a combination of open spaces, tech content, socializing, and contesting is luring people to iphone devcamps, silverlight, adobe air, and now sharepoint. my compadre dave in chicago is helping to support a MOSSCamp in chicago.  using the barcamp site?  of course not, it is for moss :-) so they are using some of the new sharepoint features in a public site.  you can read about the plans for the 9 NOV event being held at clarity consulting. so if you are available, in the area, and not too tired if...

sharepoint and firefox

a while back i wrote a post about sharepoint and firefox...i saw a trackback to this in a forum indicating a lot of rant for microsoft not including this support.  in my original post i made reference to a partner that was enabling this for firefox users.  the link is in the post but i'll make it here again. telerik and cross-browser editor for sharepoint 2007 done.  get it (free btw) and install it.  they have a doc to help you configure/install. there, so no more complaining :-) tags: sharepoint, telerik, radeditor, moss, moss 2007, firefox, rich editor

migrating to sharepoint 2007 as a developer...

...and missing the CAML love?  you got so used to the template structure for sharepoint 2003 didn't you :-)  take a look at some information to help you understand if you don't know much about master pages (the ASP.NET template framework that sharepoint...err...um...sorry, MOSS uses now) this is a good primer especially if you are using sharepoint designer to manage your sharepoint site. when you visit the sharepoint designer tutorial link you'll see information about: introduction to asp.net master pages modify the default master page modify the default sharepoint content placeholders create a content page...

smartpart + ajaxbasepart = yummy

eric schoonover pointed me to what jan completed late last night -- implementing ajax support in the smartpart...yippee... check out the smartpart for sharepoint now with asp.net ajax support! tags: sharepoint, moss 2007, sharepoint 2007, windows sharepoint services, ajax control toolkit, ajax, asp.net, asp.net ajax, microsoft ajax, ajaxbasepart, web part, smartpart, smart part, jan tielens

ajax and sharepoint sittin' in a tree

have you been looking at sharepoint (yeah, yeah, okay "moss")?  wanted to add some ajaxified love to those new interfaces?  or perhaps some of your own web parts. take a look at some comments from mike ammerlaan on the topic.  in a recent post, mike talks about integrating asp.net ajax with sharepoint (see he doesn't even use moss).  there are some tips on extending the sharepoing web.config with the appropriate elements, yada yada. in addition to that, eric schoonover writes about the AjaxBasePart and provides examples and code for you to use. with these two resources it should be enough...

sharepoint: feedreader and flash web part on moss 2007

over the past few weeks i've been getting a few requests for if my web parts work on sharepoint 2007 (also referred to as moss).  well to be honest, time has been getting the better of me and i hadn't had a chance to test. well tonight i fired up a windows sharepoint services 2007 instance and loaded the web parts AS IS to see what they did after that i loaded them up.  here's the flash web part in action: and here's the feedreader in action: they rendered without issue for me.  there is something funkadelic in the upper left corner that i...

sharepoint and firefox: no rich editor for you

okay, not entirely true.  i recently got a comment on how sharepoint might not make it in a company because one of the features, a rich editor for html that is used in rich edit areas, wiki, blog, etc., does not support firefox as a browser.  basically you can still edit, but you don't get the WYSIWYG environment. well, there are a couple of options.  first, the hack (i haven't even tried this to be honest so i shouldn't even be announcing it :-)).  in web.config (since sharepoint 2007 is an asp.net app) you can add <browserCaps> elements to the...

moss 2007 in action

bill pointed out this great example of moss2007 in action, in use, full-featured, and guess what...it doesn't "look" like sharepoint.  it's the sharepoint european conference site.  the site seems well organized and even uses the infopath form server features as a part of the registration form. talk about dogfooding!  well done! tags: sharepoint, moss, office 2007, infopath, bill simser

why sharepoint 2007 makes me happy

two words (separated by a dot): default.master having worked with sharepoint technologies since "v1" (dare i call it alpha?), those could appreciate the likes of using such rich development tools like notepad to modify themes and templates.  i mean, who needs designers and other productivity greatness like color coding, intellisense, previews, etc.  after all, they only save time... as a long time fan of web development and lover of all things asp.net, i was so happy to learn early on that sharepoint v3 (i much prefer that than MOSS) was going to be built on asp.net.  don't get me wrong,...

doclibutils source code released

following releasing code for feedreader, the source for doclibutils is now available as well. this is far less mature and has a few known scripting issues, but now those can tinker away! codeplex: DocLibUtils

FeedReader open sourced...finally

well, for those that have been emailing, i hope you stayed subscribed.  feedreader has finally found a home and the complete source code is available.  as i’m sure most of you have reflected the code ;-) you’ll know it isn’t brain surgery, but that there are probably some things that could be cleaned up and we know there are areas that need to be fixed. so visit the feedreader codeplex today and get the source released under the creative commons attribution-sharealike 2.5 license. remember, the purpose of open source is to share :-D, so be sure to contribute back your fixes and...
