An interesting question was posted on one of the distribution lists today. “The client wanted to look into this MSDN drag and drop typed left navigation bar to work on Sharepoint 2010, does anyone make this work or have idea about this?” Click the control that is circled, and the menu is expanded or...

One of my favorite new additions to SharePoint 2010 is the client side object model . You can easily reference it using an assembly for Silverlight or managed code development, which means you get all the Intellisense goodness. However, there is no Intellisense displayed for client side object model...

SharePoint as a Composite Application Platform
I had the pleasure of speaking at the SharePoint TechFest 2010 event today in Dallas, Texas. Over 650 people at this event, holy smokes it was a great time. I had the first time slot of the day, and when I first started the talk the room wasn’t even 1/4 full (maybe about 30 people). ...

Virtual Earth Now Supports Pin Clustering
Very cool... Virtual Earth now supports pin clustering . You can see a sample that shows pin clustering . You can control clustering with a VEClusteringOptions class, which contains properties for the Icon and callback method. This is a lot easier that the kludge code that I wrote for a customer awhile...

Made My Blog Go Live
I was surfing around awhile today, and came across David Chou's blog . He has some widgets on his blog that I thought were interesting, including a Live Messenger window that lets you ping him if he's online. That caught my attention, but what I thought was even cooler was a drop-down list that allows...

The Impact of Enterprise 2.0 on the Enterprise
When I think of the impact of Enterprise 2.0 in the next 5 years, I can't help but imagine there's a war brewing. Web 2.0 was the big love fest, can't we all just share data and get along with standards? Enterprise 2.0, by contrast, doesn't share that same vision. Today's view is, "Can't we all just...

What You Need To Know: WCF, WCF, ADO.NET SyncServices, and ClickOnce

Using the Virtual Earth Control in SharePoint
I have been using the Virtual Earth control a lot lately for various demos, mostly by putting customized maps into SharePoint Content Editor web part. It's a cool effect, and can be an incredibly useful tool for your company's intranet. For instance, I am planning an event at Qwest in Denver, Colorado...

Digital Asset Management and IMM
My wife says I have the humor of a 13-year old at times. Maybe she's right. I was able to interview Mark Kashman, Product Manager for Interactive Media Manager, on IMM as a Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution . I can't help but picture Beavis and Butthead, "Huh huh huh... he said DAM." Jokes aside...

Highlighting Activities in the AJAX Workflow Monitor Example
In my last post, I showed how you can use Jon Flanders's AJAX Workflow Monitor example with Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 . After I got it working, I was so giddy that I kept on tinkering for most of the day. If you have seen the DinnerNow scenario , you have probably seen the WF designer control hosted...

Using the AJAX Workflow Monitor With .NET 3.5 Beta 2
Awhile back, Jon Flanders posted an excellent example of creating an AJAX enabled Workflow Monitor using ASP.NET AJAX 1.0. What's really cool is that you can very easily upgrade this sample to use with .NET 3.5 Beta 2 and use it without downloading the ASP.NET AJAX libraries since all of the ASP.NET...

Using SyndicationFeed to Access a Secure Feed
Prasad asks how to use the SyndicationFeed type in .NET 3.5 to access a secure feed . I have to say, it depends on what you mean by "secure feed." RSS and Atom are typically delivered through HTTP GET with text/xml as the content-type. I have to assume that you are securing that HTTP GET endpoint...
