SharePoint 2010 OOTB Features

The following are the features installed by SharePoint 2010 Enterprise.  I frequently need to find what a feature is associated with a feature id during development, and hence the table. As all feature titles and descriptions are localized, I have extracted the localized strings for each of the strings from english langauge installation. Hope this helpful.       Feature Id Feature Name Scope Hidden Solution Id 2acf27a5-f703-4277-9f5d-24d70110b18b Advanced Web Analytics Reports Site True 5fee007f-3729-4a78-86fb-688d8597713c   This feature is advanced Web Analytics Reports for the site collection 8e947bf0-fe40-4dff-be3d-a8b88112ade6 Web Analytics Web Part Site True 5fee007f-3729-4a78-86fb-688d8597713c   The feature is a web part to display popular content, search queries and search results.

Use CAML Query to Read Data from lists or Libraries

One way to read the data from a list or a library is to iterate through it using the items collection of the list or library. But this is not the most efficient way to do it, specially if only few items are needed from this list. Enter CAML Queries. The following is the example query <where> <eq> <fieldref name="Title"> <value type="Text">title</value> </fieldref> </eq> </where> One thing to note in the CAML Query is that there is start and end tag.

Sharepoint Delay Activity Timer

Sharepoint Delay Activity is rounded off to the minute interval that is setup for ‘job-workflow’ property. This is because the job is responsible for waking up the workflow at the specified time. This job is usually set to run every 5 minutes. It is easy to change (increase or decrease) this value. To get the current job interval value: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\stsadm -o getproperty -pn job-workflow -url http://siteaddress< Or to change it every minute C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\stsadm -o setproperty -pn job-immediate-alerts -url http://siteaddress -pv "every 1 minutes between 0 and 59" Just be careful about this on production server, as it would create extra load if set to 1 minute interval.

Sharepoint 'Unknown Error' Solution

Sharepoint is very bad when it comes to showing useful error. Even the log files does not contain information that can be considered useful. This is a big problem specially when programming webpart and other extensions. To change this behavior and get sharepoint to display detailed message Modify your web.config to set the following: <SafeMode ... CallStack="true" ...> <customErrors mode="Off" /> <compilation batch="true" debug="true"> All three of the modifications are required for full debug output.

Welcome to Niral.Net This is the new Niral.Net. The site is empty as of now, but I will be putting on content as time goes by. I am running the site on Drupal for multiple reason, my laziness to create something is just one of them. Apart from that, Drupal also gives me the ability to publish some content that I always wanted to but never got enough time to actually do it.

Blast from the Past !!!

I just discovered that 3D Releams open sourced the classic Duke Nukem 3D a few years back. That means windows ports for the old classic !! Damn its looks good !! Being fickle minded, I hardly stick on to one game. But Duke Nukem was and is probably the only game I played for extended period of time (On my old P60 hehehe ). I tried google and wow, I found the home of jduke3d a windows port of the game.
