Going to discuss Office 365 Taxonomy and OneDrive for Business at SharePoint Saturday Paris

SPS ParisThis week I am off to Paris with my little family, and on Saturday I will enjoy spending my day with the French SharePoint community and presenting my views and case study of using OneDrive for Business in Office365. I will be presenting [en Français] which I have not done for years, so be sure to hear some weird “fran-glais” as the technical terms are all in english for me.

The title was actually “Shall we forget about taxonomy with Office 365?” which refers to the fact that OneDrive for Business allows users to store a crazy-full amount of files on the cloud and the question that stands: what to do with all this ? What about my team sites, department sites, organised libraries with metadata that I have been telling and training my users to maintain for years ?
Do I have to forget everything I learnt ?

See you on Saturday to see how some of my clients are managing this question!
À Samedi pour voir comment certain de mes clients gèrent cette problématique d’entreprise!

Looking forward to see some familiar faces at the SharePoint Saturday Jersey this weekend, it’s always amazing to see so many people willing to sacrifice their Saturday to talk geeky / work related subject.

Our session is at 10:30 so come and learn about the latest BI Reports Tools in Excel that will make you re-think about Excel, and see how we can expose those reports into SharePoint and Office365 in minutes.

If you see me around, please stop me and say Hi !  / Bonjour ! :-) (click my profile to see what I look like ;-)

How to validate string.format within Visual Studio

February 28, 2014 Leave a comment

 

In writing code we use string.format a lot to create strings for error reporting or sending to the screen. Some of these will only ever get created if an error occurs so they become difficult to test to make sure the don’t throw an error. Take the following example

The following code would fail at runtime but is fine in the compiler

string.Format("{0} This is valid but will error {1}", this.siteURL);

So how do we catch these. Well we all use the code analysis tools built into visual studio. Don’t we?

 

Well this has a nice test case that will catch and highlight this problem.

 

Run code analysis on your project Alt+F11 or select “Run Code Analysis on …” from the Analyse menu.

 

Then once this has finished you can search for issue CA2241. This will show any and all string.formats that would fail at run time.

 

It would be nice if the compiler caught these but this is still a good approach.

Infopath Namespace manager creation code

February 18, 2014 Leave a comment

I have had to create some code this week that reads the xml created by InfoPath. I then found that if you try and xpath on something you get a null return until the namespace manager has all of the correct entries. In the past I have created these manually but after a bit of google fo I have come up with the below piece of code. It takes an XMLDocument that you have created based on the form file (or any XML document really) and returns you a newly created namespace manager that can be used along side you xpath queries to get the data you want.

 

 

public static XmlNamespaceManager GetNameSpaceManager(XmlDocument xmlDoc)
{
XmlNamespaceManager ns = new XmlNamespaceManager(xmlDoc.NameTable);
foreach (XmlAttribute att in xmlDoc.DocumentElement.Attributes)
{
if (att.Prefix == "xmlns")
{
ns.AddNamespace(att.LocalName, att.Value);
}
}
return ns;
}

.csharpcode, .csharpcode pre
{
font-size: small;
color: black;
font-family: consolas, “Courier New”, courier, monospace;
background-color: #ffffff;
/*white-space: pre;*/
}
.csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; }
.csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; }
.csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; }
.csharpcode .str { color: #006080; }
.csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; }
.csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; }
.csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; }
.csharpcode .html { color: #800000; }
.csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; }
.csharpcode .alt
{
background-color: #f4f4f4;
width: 100%;
margin: 0em;
}
.csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; }
