Setting up Windows Azure .net development environment

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on February 21, 2013

I recently started Azure development and thought maybe this post would be useful for future developers. It’s basically about setting up Windows Azure development environment for .NET

  1. Download and Install Windows Azure SDK.
  2. Download and Install NuGet package Manager. Nuget package manager is a easy way to download and reference the needed libraries to your project.
  3. Setup a Windows Azure account from Windows Azure Website. Microsoft provides 90 day free trial to use the Azure cloud resources. During the registration process, it asks for credit card details to validate the authenticity. They do not charge the card.

Assuming you have Visual Studio already installed, that’ pretty much it.

MOSS Web Services – Accessing Sharepoint List data

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on June 4, 2009

Sharepoint 2007 provides rich set of API’s that allows developers to develop custom components in Sharepoint to meet custom requirements.

SharePoint API’s can be classified into two types.

  1. Sharepoint Object Model
  2. Sharepoint Web Services

Sharepoint Object Model enables developers to customize almost anything that is in Sharepoint right from creating a Site Collection to connecting to external data sources. This object model is enclosed in 10 dll’s with 30 namespaces. A series of articles on consuming Sharepoint object model can be found here and here.

In on of my previous posts, I wrote down the steps to access SharePoint list data using SharePoint object model and CAML queries.

Now, lets see how to consume the Sharepoint Web Services in order to retrieve the Sharepoint List Data.

Step By Step

  1. Create a new windows form project.
  2. Add Web Reference to Sharepoint Lists Web Service
    1. Right-click ‘Service Reference’ and select ‘Add Service Reference’.
    2. In the Add Service Reference dialog box, click Advanced button.
    3. In the ‘Service Reference settings’ dialog box, click Add Web Reference.
    4. In the Url dropdown box, enter the url of your sharepoint site’s web service. If you are developing in the same system as the system in which MOSS is installed, then you can find the web services by clicking the link ‘Web Services in this Solution’ available in the Add Web Reference dialog box.
      1. Note : The _vti_bin directory present under the sharepoint website directory lists down all the web services available.
    5. Scroll through the list of Web Services. Click in the ‘Lists’ web service. Check the url in the url column and ensure that this Lists web service corresponds to your sharepoint site.
    6. Lists Web Service
    7. In the Web Reference name text box, give a name to the Lists web reference. Lets name it ListsWS.
    8. Click Add Reference.
    9. AddWebReference
  3. Place a button in the form. Name it btnGetListItems and the Caption can be Get List Items. Double click the button and generate the event handler.
  4. The Lists web service contains an class called Lists. Lets create an object for this Lists class.
    1. ListsWS.Lists list = new ListsWS.Lists();
  5. The List object contains a method called GetListItems(). We need to invoke this method with appropriate parameters to get the items from the list
    1. The first parameter to this method is the name of the list.
    2. The remaining parameters are there to filter the list based on user defined criteria’s. Without any criteria, to fetch all the items from the list, the method should look like the following.
      1. list.GetListItems(“MyListName”, “”, null, null, “”, null,null);
      2. The signature of GetListItems in MSDN
  6. The return type of the GetListItems() is an Xml Node.
  7. The XmlNode’s inner xml looks like the following.
  8. We need to process the xml node in order to access the list values.
    1. Below, I have processed the xml to obtain the value of the column ‘Title’ that is present in the list and displayed it in a label.
  9. The entire code is given below

ListWS.Lists lists = new ListWS.Lists();
lists.UseDefaultCredentials = true;

    XmlNode nodes = lists.GetListItems(“MyList1″, “”, null, null, “”, null, null);foreach (XmlNode node in nodes)
    {
        if (node.Name == “rs:data”)
        {
            for (int i = 0; i < node.ChildNodes.Count; i++)
            {
                if (node.ChildNodes[i].Name == “z:row”)
                {
                   lblResults.Text =  node.ChildNodes[i].Attributes["ows_Title"].Value;
                }
            }
        }
    }

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Creating Lists using Sharepoint Object Model

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on May 26, 2009

In my previous post I wrote about creating sites using sharepoint object model. I strongly recommend to read that post before proceeding with this. It discusses about Sharepoint Site Architectures in detail.

Listed below are the Sharepoint site components and their corresponding object in the sharepoint object model.

Sharepoint Site Architecture Component Object in Sharepoint Object Model
Site Collection SPSite
Site SPWeb
List Collection SPListCollection
List SPList
List Field Collection SPFieldCollection
List Field SPField
List Item Collection SPListItemCollection
List Item SPListItem

Steps to create a new Sharepoint List:

  1. Open Visual Studio. Create a new Windows Forms project.
  2. Add a textboxes, one to accept the name of the site collection and another to accept the name of the new site to be created under the site collection.
  3. Add a button that creates the new site.
  4. Add reference to Microsoft.Sharepoint dll. This dll is represented by the name Windows Sharepoint Services in the Add Reference dialog box.
  5. Add the namespace of Microsoft.Sharepoint dll like this.
    • using Microsoft.Sharepoint;
  6. In the button click event, open the site collection.
    • SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite(txtSiteCollectionUrl.Text);
  7. Now open the top level site of the site collection.
    • SPWeb site = siteCollection.OpenWeb();
    • If you want to open a different site under the site collection other than the top level site, you can use the overloaded methods of the OpenWeb() method that accepts the name of the site as argument.
  8. The Lists property present in the SPWeb object will return all the lists that are present in that site as an SPListCollection object
    • SPListCollection listCollection = site.Lists;
  9. In order to add a new list, use the add method of the SPListCollection object.
    • listCollection.Add(“listname”, “list description”, SPListTemplateType.GenericList);
    • Note that the third argument accepts the template in which the list should be created. GenericTemplate represents the custom list. We can choose the template we need from the SPListTemplateType enum.
  10. Close and dispose and the site and site collection
    • site.dispose();
    • siteCollection.close();

The complete code can be found below..

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
public Form1()
{
InitializeComponent();
}

SPSite siteCollection;
SPWeb site;

private void btnCreateSite_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

try
{
siteCollection = new SPSite(txtSiteCollection.Text);
site = siteCollection.OpenWeb();
SPListCollection listCollection = site.Lists;

listCollection.Add(txtListName.Text, “list description”, SPListTemplateType.GenericList);
}
catch (Exception)
{ }
finally
{
site.Dispose();
siteCollection.Close();
}
}

}
}

Hope this is useful.

Creating Sites using Sharepoint Object Model

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on May 24, 2009

MOSS 2007 provides rich set of API’s that allows developers to programatically accomplish  almost everything that can be done in sharepoint. Sharepoint Object Model comes with 10 different dll’s comprising 30 namespaces.

The aim of this post is to leverage the sharepoint object model in order to create a new sharepoint site programatically.

Before getting into that, lets look at the sharepoint site structure in the following diagram.

SiteArchitecture

Each layer in the above architecture diagram is represented by an object in the sharepoint object model. The object mapping is represented in the following table.

Sharepoint Site Architecture Component Object in Sharepoint Object Model
Site Collection SPSite
Site SPWeb
List Collection SPListCollection
List SPList
List Field Collection SPFieldCollection
List Field SPField
List Item Collection SPListItemCollection
List Item SPListItem

Steps to create a new Sharepoint Site:

  1. Open Visual Studio. Create a new Windows Forms project.
  2. Add a textboxes, one to accept the name of the site collection and another to accept the name of the new site to be created under the site collection.
  3. Add a button that creates the new site.
  4. Add reference to Microsoft.Sharepoint dll. This dll is represented by the name Windows Sharepoint Services in the Add Reference dialog box.
  5. Add the namespace of Microsoft.Sharepoint dll like this.
    • using Microsoft.Sharepoint;
  6. In the button click event, open the site collection.
    • SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite(txtSiteCollectionUrl.Text);
  7. Now open the top level site of the site collection.
    • SPWeb site = siteCollection.OpenWeb();
    • If you want to open a different site under the site collection other than the top level site, you can use the overloaded methods of the OpenWeb() method that accepts the name of the site as argument.
  8. SPWeb object has a property called ‘Webs’ that contains a collection of all the sites present under that site.
  9. Inorder to add a new site, use the following code.
    • site.Webs.Add(txtSiteName.Text, txtSiteName.Text, Convert.ToUInt32(1033),site.WebTemplate, , false,false);
  10. Close and dispose and the site and site collection
    • site.dispose();
    • siteCollection.close();

The complete code can be found in this file.using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
public Form1()
{
InitializeComponent();
}

SPSite siteCollection;
SPWeb site;

private void btnCreateSite_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

try
{
siteCollection = new SPSite(txtSiteCollection.Text);
site = siteCollection.OpenWeb();
site.Webs.Add(txtSiteName.Text, txtSiteName.Text,
txtSiteName.Text + ” Desc”, Convert.ToUInt32(1033),  site.WebTemplate,
false, false);
}
catch (Exception)
{ }
finally
{
site.Dispose();
siteCollection.Close();
}
}

}
}

Hope this is useful.

Custom Templates – Save Site as a Template

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on May 9, 2009

In my last post, I explained all the out-of-the-box templates availalble in Sharepoint 2007.  In some cases (say a unique business requirement that needs a site template that doen’t fit in any of the one available out-of-the-box),  the templates available out-of-the-box, cannot be utilized right away. We might want to create a template that is customized to a requirement.

MOSS 2007 lets us create a site that is customized to our requirement and allow as to save and use that site as a template. How? Read further..

Now, I want to create a site template that will have the following elements. To make it very simple, I am having  just the following two elements.

  1. Document Library
  2. Picture Library

No available out-of-the-templates suites this requirement. Hence we build our own template

Creating Template Structure

  1. Go to Site Actions –> Create
  2. Select Site and Workspaces
  3. Give a title to the Site, enter the Url in the corresponding box.
  4. In the Select Templates, select Blank Template under the tab Collaboration
  5. Provide the administrator id and click Ok to create the Blank Site
  6. From the newly created Blank Site, go to Site Actions –> Create
  7. Selecte Document Library in the Libraries and Lists section.
  8. Give the name and decscription for the Docuemnt library and click Ok.
  9. Again goto Site Actions –> Create.
  10. Select Picture Libraries in the Libraries and Lists section.
  11. Enter the name and description for the Picture library. Click Ok.

Now we have created the structure for our template. The next step is creating a Template from this structure

Creating Template

  1. Go to Site Actions –> Site Settings
  2. Select Save as a Template from the section ‘ Look and Feel ‘.
  3. savesiteastemplate1
  4. savesiteastemplate2
  5. Enter the name for the template and the template file name. I am giving the name of  ‘TrainingTemplate’ for both template and the filename.
  6. Note the template file is has an extension of .stp.
  7. Give a short description for the template.
  8. Click Ok to create the template.

Once the template is created, it will be available in the Site templte gallery as shown below.

Now lets create a site based on the template we just created.

  1. Go to Site Actions –> Create
  2. Select Sites and Workspaces.
  3. Now you can see a Customtab in the templates section as shown below
  4. Select the Custom tab. This will show the template ‘TrainingTemplate’ we just created.
  5. Select the template, fill other required details like primary site administrator. Click Ok.
  6. Now the created site will have Document libraries and Picture libraries by default as shown below.

Hope this is useful.

Thanks.

Creating Custom Web Parts in MOSS 2007

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on May 9, 2009

Over my previous posts, I was discussing about the out-of-the-box site templates and out-of-the-box webparts available in MOSS 2007. This post is dedicated to Creating Custom Web Parts in MOSS 2007.

Creating Custom Web Parts:

Let us list down the procedures involved in creating custom web parts.

  1. Create custom web part control in Visual Studio
  2. Strong name the created web part assembly
  3. Place the assembly in the bin directory in the Virtual Directory of the web application
  4. Place the assembly in the GAC
  5. Notedown the assembly name, version and public key token by looking into the assembly properties in the GAC
  6. Add a SafeControl entry for the web part assembly in the application’s web.config file
  7. Do IISRESET
  • Create Web Part in Visual Studio
    • Open Visual Studio 2005–>Create New Project–>Select Class Library project template–>Enter the project name as CustomWebpart
    • customwebpart_vs_createproject
    • Add Reference to System.Web dll
    • Open Class1.cs. Add the following namespaces
      • using System.Web;
      • using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
      • using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
    • Change the name of the class to CustomWebPart1. Inherit CustomWebPart1 from WebPart class (see code below)
    • Override CreateChildControls and RenderControls events (see code below)
    • Create a label control and assign its text property inside CreateChildControls events ( see code below)
    • The code looks like the following
    • using System;
      using System.Collections.Generic;
      using System.Linq;
      using System.Text;
      using System.Web;
      using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
      using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;

      namespace CustomWebpart
      {
      public class CustomWebPart1 : WebPart
      {
      Label lblName;
      protected override void CreateChildControls()
      {
      lblName = new Label();
      lblName.Text = “This is the Custom Webpart created in MOSS training”;
      this.Controls.Add(lblName);
      base.CreateChildControls();
      }
      public override void RenderControl(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter writer)
      {
      base.RenderControl(writer);
      }

      }
      }

    • Build the solution.  The assembly CustomWebpart will get created

customwebpart_vs_customwebpart

  • Strong Naming the Assembly
    • Go to Project Properties page (Right click the project and select properties)
    • Select Signings section.  Check the ‘Sign the assembly’ checkbox.
    • Select ‘Create New’ in the ‘Choose the strong name file’ drop down box.
    • In the dilog box enter a key name say snKey and click ok. (Uncheck the password checkbox).
    • customwebpart_vs_createstrongname
    • Now the assembly is strong named. Build the project.
  • Place the dll in the bin folder of the application’s virtual directory

customwebpart_vs_iis

  • Place the dll in the GAC and note down its name and public key token

customwebpart_gac

  • Add the assembly as Safe Control in the application’s web.config.

customwebpart_webconfigjpg

  • Thats all. Do an IISRESET
  • Adding newly created web part to Site Collection
    • Go to SiteActions –>Site Settings
    • In the Galleries section choose Web Parts
    • In the Web Parts gallery click on New
    • In Add new web parts page, scroll through the list and select the web part you just created.
    • Click on the button Import Web Part to the Gallery.
    • Now, go to the page where you want to add the newly created custom web part
    • SiteActions –> Edit page
    • Click Add Web Part. In the Add Web Part box, select the custom web part.
    • Click Ok.
    • Now you can see the custom web part is added to the page.

Hope this is useful.

Please leave your comments.

Thanks

Form Web Part

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on May 9, 2009

This post discusses about Form Web Part which is an out-of-the-box web part available with MOSS 2007.  Other out-of-the-box MOSS 2007 webparts are discussed here.

Form Web Part unlike other web parts does not operate alone. Usually this web part is used to provide input to other web parts / lists to act accordingly. For example,

  • Form web part can pass the url / path of an image that is to be displayed in the Picture web part.
  • Form web part can pass the value of the filter to be applied to a column in the sharepoint list.

Let us take one of the examples and discuss in detail.

There is a sharepoint list with the name ‘EmployeeDetails’ with the following columns. Name, Title, Email and Department.  The lists looks something like this

formwebpart-employeedetails

The requirement is, we want to dynamically apply the filter on the Department column. ie, we might want to see employees belonging to department ‘HR’ at one time and employees beloging to department ‘Sales’ another time.

For this, lets Add a Form Web Part to the page.

  1. Go to Site Actions –> Edit Page
  2. Click Add a Web Part
  3. Select Form Web Part from the list of web parts displayed
  4. By default, Form web part contains a  textbox and a ‘Go’ button.
  5. Variety of controls like Labels, check boxes etc can be added to the Form Web Part using the Source Editor present in the tool pane.( A web part’s tool pane can be accessed byclicking Modify Shared Web Part option present in the Edit menu of that web part). For simplicity, lets make use of the default controls available with the Form web part. Now the page looks something like this
  6. formwebpart
  7. Now in the Form Web Part, go to Edit –> Connections –> Provide values to –> Select ‘EmployeeDetails’.  This will open ‘Configure Connection’ dialog box.
  8. formwebpart-configureconnection
  9. Select Column T1 and click next (Note T1 is the name of the textbox in the form web part which you can see from the Source Editor of Form Web Part)
  10. Now a second dialog box appears that lists the columns present in the ‘EmployeeDetails’ list. Select the column for which we need to apply the filter. In our case it is ‘Deparment’ column
  11. formwebpart-configureconnection3
  12. Click Next or Finish to complete the configuration
  13. Now to list employee belonging to the department ‘HR’, enter ‘HR’ in the textbox of form web part and click Go. You can see the filtered EmployeeDetailas as below
  14. formwebpart-result1
  15. To get employees belong to Sales department, enter ‘Salee’ in the Form Web Part to get the needed list like below.
  16. formwebpart-result2

 

Hope this is useful..

Please leave your comments.

Thanks.

Sharepoint Webparts

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on May 9, 2009

Web part is what that makes up the web pages in a sharepoint site. A Sharepoint site is nothing but a group of web pages in which each and every web page holds one or more web parts which in itself contains different types of data based on the type of the web part chosen. The following are the out-of-the-box web parts available with MOSS 2007.

  1. Content Editor Web Part
  2. Form Web Part
  3. Image Web Part
  4. List Web Part
  5. Page Viewer Web Part
  6. Site Users Web Part
  7. XML Web Part

Lets see each of these web parts in detail.

  • Content Editor Web Part
    • Content Editor Web Part is used to display data in the form of text, images, table and links. To provide input to this web part, it exposes three properties in its tool pane (A web part’s tool pane can be reached by Site Actions –> Edit Page –>Click Edit in the web part–>Select Modify Shared Web Part ). Those are
      • Source Editor : Data is entered in HTML format. The data can be formatted using HTML tags and it requires author to know the HTML syntax.
      • Rich Text Editor :  Allows to enter information in plain text. It provides tools to insert images, tables and links into the web part.
      • Content Link : This can be used to link this web part to a text file with HTML formatting.
  • Form Web Part
    • Form Web Part needed a separate post and it can be read here.
  • Image Web Part
    • This Web Part is used to add an image to your web part page. The image can be a drawing or a logo or a diagram. The supported image formats are .bmp, .emf, .gif, .jpg, .png
    • The path of the image can be given in the Image Link property in the web parts tool pane
  • Page Viewer Web Part
    • This web part displays the content of any web page that is linked to it. In addition to web pages, it can display the contents of a folder or a file for which the path is provided in the toolpane.
    • There will be three radio buttons in the toolpane for each for Web Page, Folders and Files. The appropriate radio button should be checked and in the Link textbox, the path of the webpage, file or folder should be provided.
  • Site Users Web Part
    • This web part displays the list of users and groups who have access to the Sharepoint site. There are three two filter conditions that can be applied to customize the users / groups being displayed.
      • Number Of Items To Display : Restricts the number of items (users / groups) being displayed in this web part. The value ranges from 1 to 1000.
      • Display Type:
        • Display Users / Groups who have direct permission.
        • Display user’s belonging to this Site’s members group
        • Display users from this group . ( The needed group name can be entered in the text box provided)
  • XML Web Part
    • This web part displays XML formatted data and applied XSL Transformtions prior to the display of the data.
    • XML Editor and XSL editor properties present in the tool pane allows the user to enter the XML data and XSL transformations.
    • XML Link and XSL Link properties present in the tool pane allows the user to link to XML files and XSLT files present anywhere in the connected network.

Hope this is useful.

There is also a post on out-of-the-box site templates in MOSS 2007 here.

Thanks.
