Assigning Rules to Audiences via STSADM « SharePoint Automation. If you read my last post, Creating Audiences via STSADM, then you know that I've been working on a project which requires me to be able to script out the creation of audiences via STSADM.

Assigning Rules to Audiences via STSADM « SharePoint Automation

My last post covered the creation of the audience itself, but an audience with no rules isn't all that useful, so for this post I'll be covering my next custom command, gl-addaudiencerule, which enables you to add complex rules to an audience. I'll reiterate a couple of things regarding creating rules from my last post. First off, when you create rules via the browser you are limited to just simple rules - in other words, you may have multiple rules but the boolean logic is limited to all rules matching or any rules matching - there is no combination or complex boolean logic with grouping. This is not the case if you create the rules programmatically - by programmatically creating the rules we can use grouping (up to 3 levels deep) and any combination of boolean logic. 1: case "member of": SharePoint - Stack Exchange. Data View/Form Web Part to the Rescue! - Sharing is Caring. Those of you who've been unlucky enough to meet me have probably seen the spit fly in all directions as I rant and rave about the Data View Web Part.

Data View/Form Web Part to the Rescue! - Sharing is Caring

My excitement is not without good reason; the DVWP can save your life as a SharePoint developer by preventing you from writing custom code to do what is actually quite simple (usually): retrieve data from any enterprise source (including SharePoint, but also SQL, Oracle, Web Services, XML, ...), and render it however you see fit.

And let's face it, anything that makes you like SharePoint Designer a lot more is always going to be a good thing! The DVWP (or DFWP, depending on the time of month) is also incredibly useful for making simple customisations to built in List Views - and for this I always encourage IT Pros learn about it on their way to becoming absolute heroes in their respective organisations (or at least, reverred semi-geeks). And before I go, a pop quiz. If the question is "anything", what's the answer? Command Index « SharePoint Automation.

Using Log Parser with SharePoint - Todd Klindt's SharePoint Admin Blog. A recent blog post of Joel Oleson's got me thinking about who visits my blog. I run my blog on my own server and I have access to all of the logs. SharePoint sits on top of IIS and I can get all the information I need from the IIS logs.

In this blog post I'll cover how I tackled going through my IIS logs and getting some useful information out of them, all with free products. I knew I wanted to get some information about the visitors to my blog, but I needed to decide exactly what information I wanted. Initially I was just curious about the number of people that were subscribed to my blog, and the number of unique visitors I get per month (or year, or whatever). The downside of Log Parser is that it can be tough to get up to speed on. Like I mentioned before, I was mainly interested in the stats mentioned in Joel's blog post.

Code, Articles, Discussion on Microsoft Technologies : Switch the sharepoint webpart page Display Mode into Edit Mode and Vice Versa

He was lazy of going to Site Actions -> Edit Page and then again going somewhere else for Exit Edit Mode :) To give some background for beginners, whenever we click Edit Page on Site Actions menu,the pages switches into a different display mode called Design Mode. Its not a feature ofSharepoint, but ASP.NET 2.0 Webparts Framework. Background For example, to programmatically switch the current page into design mode, you can simply add a link control with an event handler that sets the DisplayMode property to DesignDisplayMode.

WebPartManager1.DisplayMode = WebPartManager.DesignDisplayMode; Although this would work technically, but it would not give up the visible changes to page, like visibilty of Page Editing toolbar, webpart zones etc. This would be present in default.master.
