ASP.NET (AJAX) in SharePoint 2007

SP1 has AJAX 1.0 in it. Which mean you can use the functionality of AJAX in your webparts. I'm currently playing around with it, and Ill keep you posted of any problems I might encounter. If anyone has does it before, i'd be interested in seeing their webpart.

Anyone need help?

I've been helping a few people over the past few weeks with some issues they're having, but a lot of them have been very small and simple task. So I thought I'd ask people for some complex problems they might be having or are experiencing. If you have anything that you're having problems with, please let me know.

On another note, .net 3.0 SP1 is out now. I recommend you download it and install it on your system. It's help me eliminate some of the errors I've been seeing in the event logs.

SharePoint Service Pack 1 crash


Some people have had SharePoint stop working after the installation of Service Pack One. This is mainly due to the upgrade process not completing. You can force an upgrade by running the following command from a command prompt:

psconfig -cmd upgrade -force

This will force the upgrade process to run again and should fix the problem for you.

You might want to also try this:

Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the following lines, and then press ENTER after each line:

cd /d %commonprogramfiles%\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\Bin

stsadm -o upgrade -forceupgrade

Let me know how it goes.....


New year, new bugs

Well, the new year is here and the bugs haven't stopped. Im not sure if any of you have had the issue where you have both Office 03 and Office 07 installed on a box and SharePoint doesn't work the way it should. Things like datagrid views crashing ie. I have a fix for it. If you want to know how, email me. I will upload it in a couple of days.
