  • A quick look at the content type editor in Visual Studio 11

    Visual Studio 11 introduces a new content type editor that you might find useful when building your next content type.  It starts with a SharePoint Project Item that you can pick from the New Item menu. From this screen, give your new content type a name and then you’ll be presented with this next...

  • Using CAML to deploy a lookup column via Feature

    This week, I needed to deploy lookup columns to some of my lists and as usual I wanted to avoid writing code at all costs.  As some of you may know, Kyle Kelin and I debate this topic often as he prefers a code approach.  I figured it had to be possible with CAML, but many claimed it was not...

  • A Note on Content Type Inheritance

    I ran into this issue a while back so I thought I would post on it.

At the time we did not know what site columns we wanted included...

  • How to: Create a Custom Document Library

    Not too long ago, I talked about how to remove the Explorer View from a document library. As part of the post, I mentioned that I would post how to build a custom document library in the near future. That is what I am covering today.

  • Implementing Metadata Inheritance using an ItemEventReceiver

    When implementing an ECM solution, it is often necessary to come up with a way for documents to inherit metadata from a parent folder.

  • Creating a Content Type based Folder in SharePoint via Feature Receiver

    I have been working a lot with document libraries again and in this particular implementation, I had a need to create a pre-determined set of folders upon document library creation that were based upon a custom content type. I couldn't find a way to do it with CAML (maybe I am just a noob), so I...
