SharePoint Timer Job : Key things while developing 2

Hi All,

When we develop the Timer job for SharePoint 2007, in the mean while in between when you developed and testing the solution on server, and you installed WSS 3.0 SP2 and MOSS SP2. This installation removes all the permission to Central Admin pool user.

So, we again get the same error or issue. So, again give the same permission, which we have given by using this link. :)

SharePoint Timer Job : Key things while developing

Hi All,

 

While developing custom job for SharePoint 2007, I had faced many problem. I develop this job as feature in SiteCollection. On the deployment time of the feature for SharePoint job it gives many type of permission issues. Like when we activate the feature, it adds the SharePoint job in the Central Administration->Operation ->SharePoint Job definition.  So, the user (like Domain\User) which have administrator permission also generates the error on deployment time of SharePoint job. It gives following error “'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object 'proc_putObject', database 'Intranet_Config', schema 'dbo'” at taskLoggerJob.Update(); code. So after many research and googling I find these following two resolution for the error.

  1. During feature activation I had: 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object 'proc_putObject', database 'Intranet_Config', schema 'dbo''. After doing a profiling on the database, I saw that the SPJobDefinition.Update() code is executed with the web application's application pool account. This account has to have access to the configuration database. I did this by setting the necessary rights in SQL Management Studio by giving to the web application's application pool account EXECUTE permissions on the proc_putClass, proc_putObject, proc_getNewObjects and proc_dropObject stored procedures.

  2. After doing the thing above, the SPJobDefinition.Delete code throws a weird exception: Access to the path 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\360c4621-fccb-4c2a-9182-b3c75ae80cf3\cache.ini' is denied. Solution: give full control to the WSS_WPG user on the folder where the cache.ini file is searched.

Find at following link.

Second, issue which I am faced the problem when debugging the solution. When I am attached the solution with OWSTIMER.EXE one the time of debugging the solution, when the error generates in the code and after resolution of the error and rerunning the solution in debug mode. The OWSTIMER.EXE is attached with previous dll of the solution. Means it does not refer the updated dll of the solution. So, to overcome this issue we have to rerun the “Windows SharePoint Timer” service from the services. When you deploy the solution, then we have to restart the service.

Get values from InfoPath form XML in Form Library

To get values from the InfoPath xml , their are two values

1. By promoting the values of InfoPath form to form library and get that values by using SPObject and SPListItemObject.

2. Is that is below :

SPWeb _web = SPContext.Current.Web;

string temXml = _web.GetFileAsString("Idea Forms/Formulate.xml");
            XmlDocument xDoc = new XmlDocument();
            xDoc.LoadXml(temXml);
            XmlNamespaceManager ns = new XmlNamespaceManager(xDoc.NameTable);
            ns.AddNamespace("my", "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/infopath/2003/myXSD/2008-02-08T09:24:40");

 

string strSampleValue = xDoc.SelectSingleNode("//my:myfield", ns).InnerText;

Timed Jobs in SharePoint

Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) and its Portal version, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS), carries out various automatic, scheduled jobs to realize repetitive tasks in a standard way.

The SharePoint Timed Jobs infrastructure takes care of the scheduled tasks needed to ensure proper functioning of the system. Timed Jobs run in the background and are based in the Microsoft SharePoint Timer service, which is always installed in the default setup of WSS and MOSS. Installed Timed Jobs can be configured from SharePoint's Central Administration using the Command-Line administrator's tool or programmed using the Object Model.

Limitation

Timed Jobs can be set up to run immediately or in a time frame based on "one," meaning a SharePoint Job can run each minute, day, or week but not, for example, every two hours or days. Another limitation is that it is impossible to schedule Jobs to run on relative time frames; for example, the second Monday of every month. A Timed Job requires a starting time, and the configured time frame determines the interval it will run at. The starting time can be an absolute time (at 12:00 am, for example) or a time range (between 8:00 and 9:00 am); in the first instance, the Job would require a few seconds to execute because the service needs to be initiated; in the second case, the Job will run at a random time within the range, giving the different servers in the farm the opportunity to progress at varied periods, balancing the load on the system.

Updating the SharePoint User Profile in SSP Programmatically

The User Profile Database in SharePoint is a great centralized location for storing all the information about the users of your SharePoint Portal.

To import the AD profiles in SharePoint then we have use UserProfileConfigManager class.

Add following references in solution:

using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using
Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles;
using
Microsoft.Office.Server;
using
System.Web;

and the following code


SPSite HomeSite = new SPSite("http://mossvs2008");

           UserProfileConfigManager SPUserProfileConfigManager = new UserProfileConfigManager(ServerContext.GetContext(HomeSite));

           if (SPUserProfileConfigManager.IsImportInProgress() == false)

               SPUserProfileConfigManager.StartImport(true);

WordprocessingML : Insert page number in the word document in center bottom of MS Word Document

Their are 3 things required for the inserting page number;

1. Footer.xml
2. Footnotes.xml
3. EndNotes.xml

And Section Properties to append in the document.

Sample code for that

                Footer footer = new Footer(new Paragraph(new ParagraphProperties(new ParagraphStyleId() { Val = "Footer" })));
                var footerPart1 = mainPart.AddNewPart<FooterPart>("rid110");
                Footer1().Save(footerPart1);
                body.Append(footer);

                Footnotes footnotes = new Footnotes(new Paragraph(new ParagraphProperties(new ParagraphStyleId() { Val = "Footnotes" })));
                var footnodeinpage = mainPart.AddNewPart<FootnotesPart>("rid111");
                PageFootNote().Save(footnodeinpage);
                body.Append(footnotes);

                Endnotes endnotes = new Endnotes(new Paragraph(new ParagraphProperties(new ParagraphStyleId() { Val = "Endnotes" })));
                var endnodeinpage = mainPart.AddNewPart<EndnotesPart>("rid112");
                PageEndNote().Save(endnodeinpage);

SpredSheetML : Updating Column in Excel sheet

Hi,

Thw basic thing in excel is to update the cell in the sheet. We have know idea how to do that. From packaging class method it is diffcult/complez to update specific row column. The SPreadsheetML makes more easy to do that. We have to just add reference of the DocumentFormat.OpenXml and write below code in the solution.

Code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging;
using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Spreadsheet;
using DocumentFormat.OpenXml;

namespace ExcelUpdation
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
// InsertText(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "123456789");
UpdateCell(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "420", 22, "C");
UpdateCell(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "420", 22, "D");
UpdateCell(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "420", 22, "E");
UpdateCell(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "420", 22, "F");
UpdateCell(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "420", 22, "G");
UpdateCell(@"c:\SummaryGraphs.xlsx", "420", 22, "H");

Open XML : Image Part in the Word document

To insert image in the word document. Use reflector tool which comes with Open Xml 2.0 SDk. it will make great help in generatin the code. For inserting a image use below steps:

1. Create a blanck word dcoument.
2. Copy paste the image(which you want to insert).
3. The go to DocumentReflectorTool.
4. Open this document in that tool. copy the image code.
5. Add following code to solution:
ImagePart imgPart = mainPart.AddImagePart(ImagePartType.Jpeg);
using (FileStream strem = new FileStream(@"C:\Bharat.JPG", FileMode.Open))
{
imgPart.FeedData(strem);
}
imagePartID = mainPart.GetIdOfPart(imgPart);
mainPart.AddExtendedPart ("http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/officeDocument/2006/relationships/image", "media/image1.jpeg", imagePartID);
Paragraph ImageParagraph = new Paragraph();

body.Append(new Paragraph(new Run(GenerateDrawing())));

Copied code from reflector tool :

public static Drawing GenerateDrawing()
{
var element =
new Drawing(
new wp.Inline(
new wp.Extent(){ Cx = 536575L, Cy = 407670L },
new wp.EffectExtent(){ LeftEdge = 19050L, TopEdge = 0L, RightEdge = 0L, BottomEdge = 0L },
new wp.DocProperties(){ Id = (UInt32Value)1U, Name = "Picture 1", Description = "C:\\Bharat.JPG" },
new wp.NonVisualGraphicFrameDrawingProperties(
new a.GraphicFrameLocks(){ NoChangeAspect = true }),
new a.Graphic(
new a.GraphicData(
new pic.Picture(
new pic.NonVisualPictureProperties(
new pic.NonVisualDrawingProperties(){ Id = (UInt32Value)0U, Name = "Picture 1", Description = "C:\\Bharat.JPG" },
new pic.NonVisualPictureDrawingProperties(
new a.PictureLocks(){ NoChangeAspect = true, NoChangeArrowheads = true })),
new pic.BlipFill(
new a.Blip() { Embed = imagePartID, CompressionState = a.BlipCompressionValues.Print },
new a.SourceRectangle(),
new a.Stretch(
new a.FillRectangle())),
new pic.ShapeProperties(
new a.Transform2D(
new a.Offset(){ X = 0L, Y = 0L },
new a.Extents(){ Cx = 536575L, Cy = 407670L }),
new a.PresetGeometry(
new a.AdjustValueList()
){ Preset = a.ShapeTypeValues.Rectangle },
new a.NoFill(),
new a.Outline(
new a.NoFill(),
new a.Miter(){ Limit = 800000 },
new a.HeadEnd(),
new a.TailEnd()
){ Width = 9525 }
){ BlackWhiteMode = a.BlackWhiteModeValues.Auto })
){ Uri = "http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/drawingml/2006/picture" })
){ DistanceFromTop = (UInt32Value)0U, DistanceFromBottom = (UInt32Value)0U, DistanceFromLeft = (UInt32Value)0U, DistanceFromRight = (UInt32Value)0U });

Open XML : Styles in the Word document

Styles are the important part of the word document. When we create paragraph or link or other component in the word document we have to set some styles on that components like Hyperlink,Heading1,23.. or Title etc.

For this we have to do some exercise like as follows :

1. Create a word documents
2. Insert all the styles like in image.


3. Save the document.
4. Rename the document(DocName.docx to DocName.zip)
5. Extract the document.
6. Go to DocName\Word folder


7. Copy the styles.xml and paste in the solution.
8. Write the below code to use in our solution

StyleDefinitionsPart styleDefinitionsPart = mainPart.AddNewPart();

//File Styles Uploading : Location of style c:\\styles.xml
FileStream stylesTemplate = new FileStream("c:\\styles.xml", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
styleDefinitionsPart.FeedData(stylesTemplate);
styleDefinitionsPart.Styles.Save();
9. When we want to append Heading 1 with our para then we can use like :

Paragraph AuthorPara = new Paragraph();
Run run = new Run();
Text TextLine = new Text("Created by: " + System.Environment.UserName);
run4.Append(TextLine);
AuthorPara.Append(new ParagraphProperties (new ParagraphStyleId (){Val="Heading1"}), run);

This is the way we can append styles to our created document.

Open XML : Adding Hyperlink to word document by WordProcessingML

To add hyperlink in the Microsoft word document. We have to write following code:

using (WordprocessingDocument WorDocument = WordprocessingDocument.Create(@"c:\Test.docx", WordprocessingDocumentType.Document))
{
// Add a new main document part.
MainDocumentPart mainPart = WorDocument.AddMainDocumentPart();
//Create Document tree for simple document.
mainPart.Document = new Document();
//Create Body (this element contains other elements that we want to include
Body body = new Body();

//Hyperlink to add
Paragraph HprPara = new Paragraph(
new Hyperlink(
new Run(
new RunProperties(
new RunStyleId(){ Val = "Hyperlink" }),
new Text("TestLink")
){ RsidRunProperties = "00356238" }
){ History = BooleanValues.One, Id = "rId4" }
){ RsidParagraphAddition = "00651E0C", RsidRunAdditionDefault = "00356238" };

//External realationship to make for hyperlink
ExternalRelationship exprRealationship = mainPart.AddExternalRelationship("http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/officeDocument/2006/relationships/hyperlink", new Uri("http://www.google.com"), "rId4");

body.Append(HprPara);

mainPart.Document.Append(body);
// Save changes to the main document part.
mainPart.Document.Save();
}

Open XML : Working with WordProcessingML

To create word document from the open xml (packaging class) is quiet tedious job. MS provided a DocumentFormat.OpenXml assembly for Open XML work. This assembly provides object for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. It will make easy to developer to create word, excel or PowerPoint reports programmatically.

Add DocumentFormat.OpenXml assembly and start working on creation of the reports. This assembly is provided by the open xml SDK 2.0. It can be downloaded from the Microsoft download center.

The following references are used for creation of the word document from this assembly.

using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging;
using DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Wordprocessing;

We can first start with simple adding text in the word document from the code. To add text in the word document add the assembly reference and then add above namespaces:

First create a paragraph object and set its properties like below

using (WordprocessingDocument WorDocument = WordprocessingDocument.Create(@"c:\Test.docx", WordprocessingDocumentType.Document))
{
// Add a new main document part.
MainDocumentPart mainPart = WorDocument.AddMainDocumentPart();
//Create Document tree for simple document.
mainPart.Document = new Document();
//Create Body (this element contains other elements that we want to include
Body body = new Body();

FontSize fontsize = new FontSize();
fontsize.Val = 38;
Color TextColor = new Color();
TextColor.Val = "4F81BD";
Bold boldFont = new Bold();
boldFont.Val = DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Wordprocessing.BooleanValues.On;


Paragraph AuthorPara = new Paragraph();
Run run = new Run();
Text TextLine = new Text("Created by: " + System.Environment.UserName);
run.Append(TextLine);
AuthorPara.Append(run);
RunProperties runProps = new RunProperties();
RunFonts runFonts = new RunFonts();
runFonts.Ascii = "Segoe UI";
runProps.Append(fontsize);
runProps.Append(runFonts);
runProps.Append(boldFont);
runProps.Append(TextColor);
run4.PrependChild(runProps);
body.Append(AuthorPara);

mainPart.Document.Append(body);
// Save changes to the main document part.
mainPart.Document.Save();
}

For creating table in the word document create table object and set properties as below

Table object and properties
Table table = new Table();
TableProperties tblPr = new TableProperties();
TableBorders tblBorders = new TableBorders();
TableWidth tblWidth = new TableWidth();


tblWidth.Width = 550;
tblBorders.TopBorder = new TopBorder();
tblBorders.TopBorder.Val = new EnumValue(BorderValues.BasicBlackDots);
tblBorders.BottomBorder = new BottomBorder();
tblBorders.BottomBorder.Val = new EnumValue(BorderValues.BasicBlackDots);
tblBorders.LeftBorder = new LeftBorder();
tblBorders.LeftBorder.Val = new EnumValue(BorderValues.BasicBlackDots);
tblBorders.RightBorder = new RightBorder();
tblBorders.RightBorder.Val = new EnumValue(BorderValues.BasicBlackDots);
tblBorders.InsideHorizontalBorder = new InsideHorizontalBorder();
tblBorders.InsideHorizontalBorder.Val = BorderValues.Single;
tblBorders.InsideVerticalBorder = new InsideVerticalBorder();
tblBorders.InsideVerticalBorder.Val = BorderValues.Single;
tblPr.Append(tblBorders);
table.Append(tblPr);
tblPr = new TableProperties();
tblPr.Append(tblWidth);

Create new table row and table cell

//Table Start
TableRow tr = new TableRow();
TableCell tc = new TableCell(AuthorPara);//Paragraph above
TableCellWidth tblCellWidth = new TableCellWidth();
tblCellWidth.Width = 600;
TableCellProperties tcp = new TableCellProperties();
GridSpan griedSpan = new GridSpan();
griedSpan.Val = 11;

tcp.Append(griedSpan);
tcp.Append(tblCellWidth);
tc.Append(tcp);

tr.Append(tc);
table.Append(tr);

In this way table can be created in the open xml using wordprocessingML

Change the Top Tool Bar color in FormServer.aspx page in SharePoint 2007

To change the color of the toolbar in the InfoPath formserver.aspx page in SharePoint2007 follow these steps:

1. Go to following location "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS".
2. Open the page "FormServer.aspx" in notepad.
3. Write the tag of scripting below page directive and copy paste this below script


//function changeColor()
//{
//document.getElementById("__toolbar_top").style.backgroundColor = "#E96A37";
//}


4. Call this function in the body OnLoad event tage of the page.

body OnLoad="javascript:changeColor()" style="margin: 0px;overflow:auto;"


5. The resultant change in the page



We have to adopt this approach because there is no css class is attached with this div. Inline styles are written instead of CSS Class.

Populating Drop Down List Box in InfoPath 2007

Generally when we have to populate data in the drop down of InfoPath we generally follow the resource file way which is present at following link. But there is another way also for that work.

For that we have to follow below steps:

1. We have a list in SharePoint from which we have to fill data in drop down box.

2. Goto control in InfoPath drag a drop down list box in the form.

3. Goto data source in InfoPath add group in the datasource like as follows:





4. In this repeting group add the two Field Displayname and Value.

5. For Display name, from data source right click on Group, and click Add



6. Similarly follow 5th step again for “Value” field. The group looks like that



7. Then goto DropDown List Box propeties and opt the follwoing option :



8. Select the newly added repeting group in the xpath in the entries field. Also select display name and values from the repeting group.





9. Open the code/event where to write the code for populating the drop down.

10. Write the following code:

public void PopulateDropDown()

{

try

{

SPSite Rootsite = SPContext.Current.Site;

SPWeb website = Rootsite.OpenWeb();

SPList SharePointList = website.Lists["Customers"];

SPListItemCollection SharePointListItems = SharePointList.Items;

XPathNavigator XMLDom = this.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:Group", this.NamespaceManager);

foreach (SPListItem Item in SharePointListItems)

{

XPathNavigator NewCloneNode = null;

NewCloneNode = XMLDom.Clone();

NewCloneNode.SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:Group/my:Displayname", this.NamespaceManager).SetValue(Item["AccountName"].ToString());

NewCloneNode.SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:Group /my:Value", this.NamespaceManager).SetValue(Item["Desktops"].ToString());

XMLDom.InsertAfter(NewCloneNode);

NewCloneNode = null;

}

NewCloneNode.DeleteSelf();


NewCloneNode = null;

}

catch

{


}

}

Benefits:

1. Don’t have to delete again and again the filled nodes in the drop down.
2. Less code work (Smart Work).
3. Performance increase.
