This afternoon, I was getting quite frustrated because I was working on a .master file in Visual Studio and all of the code folding and Intellisense was missing! It seems that when the .master file is opened by double-clicking it in the Solution Explorer, these items will be missing. To resolve the problem, right-click the .master file and select View Code!

Ever had a need to find all of the files in a site collection that link to a specific file? A colleague of mine made an excellent find a few weeks ago and taught me this gem from the SharePoint object model. He had a need to find all publishing page layouts on a site and catalog which were being used and which weren’t. Check out his post here: SharePoint Fix: Powershell script to get SharePoint Page Layouts inventory and its usage across site collection

I have a requirement for a DelegateControl where I need the child candidate control to render a link that opens in a new window in certain instances of the DelegateControl and open the link in the same window otherwise. The design that made the most sense to me was to use the same code for the child control to compute and render the link in both circumstances and pass a boolean parameter,
OpenLinkInNewWindow, to control the target of the link.

I was in the middle of a SharePoint demo this morning, was typing some input, and all of the sudden my development server was going crazy! It turns out to be a problem I’ve encountered many times before. The “e” key started Windows Explorer. The “r” key started the Run dialog. The list goes on. It’s so frustrating!

I was introduced to the SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 2010 at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011 in Anaheim, CA. I was very excited about its capabilities and have just gotten around to testing it in the last couple of days.
After configuring PowerShell remoting between my laptop and my development server, I set out to create a new project in the SharePoint Diagnostic Studio and see what it could do. Upon creating a new project, I entered my credentials. After a few moments, I received the following message.
It appears the new project installation was not successful. Click OK to see the error message
