Charlotte Mini Code Camp – Portals

Posted by Brian Gough on August 31, 2005

We had a great event at the Microsoft Complex in Charlotte, NC. Speakers Ted Pattison and David Leinenger gave great talks about Sharepoint, ASP 2.0 and Dot Net Nuke. Thank you Doug Turnure-Developer Community Champion for Microsoft for putting this together on such short notice. Once again, thank you Ted and David for making the trip and giving such a great presentation. Yeah, I know, there was no coffee. Sorry. We’ll see what we can do next time. 😉

Naturally, I was most interested in the Sharepoint side and Ted had a lot of great information to share. He covered Portal (SPS) and WSS functionality from an adminstrators POV as well as a developers POV. He provided some very nice insight on how to create Sharepoint web parts with Visual Studio .Net, including a method for creating webparts via Custom User Controls that I think was awesome. I will post what he shared, or a link to it in another posting, if you’re interested.
Hopefully these code camps will become a trend with Microsoft and the Developers Guild. The Guild is planning on hosting a Hands-On-Lab in the not too distant future. Stay tuned for more information!

Cut and Paste issues with Sharepoint

Posted by Brian Gough on August 18, 2005

You may have noticed that you can not always use the Right-Mouse click to paste content into Sharepoint areas, like the “Body” of an Announcement for example. However, you can use the ctrl-V to paste the content in.
So, if all else fails, try the ctrl-c / ctrl-v for cutting and pasting and I think you will have much better results.
