Sharepoint Client Object Model:Working with Survey List and debugging ECMA Script

The List Schema for Survey List is quite different from the Custom Lists.
Every Question is added as the List column(Field)  and
Every Response to questions is added as   List Item.
To retrieve the Survey question and and To submit the response to List via Client Object Model,
do the following.

1)Load the reference of sp.js  and Load the address of function to be called as below
2)Define the function.
var surveyItems = null;
var surveyFields=null;
var surveyList = null;
var oneField = null;

function DisplaySurveyQ()
var context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
var web = context.get_web();
// of your desired target list:
surveyList = web.get_lists().getByTitle('surveylistName');
var caml = new SP.CamlQuery();
surveyItems = surveyList.getItems(caml);
oneField = surveyFields.getByInternalNameOrTitle("Title"); 



3) Create callback handlers in this function
var success = Function.createDelegate(this, this.onSuccess);
var failure = Function.createDelegate(this, this.onFailure);

4)Execute an async query in this function

5)Define  Function On  success full operation.
// Async query succeeded.
function onSuccess(sender, args) {
// for example iterate through list items or fields and assign the value to  html controls like  div, uls etc
var listEnumerator = surveyItems.getEnumerator();
var listFieldEnumerator = surveyFields.getEnumerator();
var Fields=surveyList.get_fields();
var Questions=new Array();
var qCount=0;
//iterate though all of the Questions  and get the recently added question from Survey
var Count=0;
while (listFieldEnumerator .moveNext()) {
var currentField=listFieldEnumerator.get_current();
Count= Count+ 1;
var currentField=Questions[qCount];
var FieldsChoices=currentField.get_choices() ;

// save the current questions internal name in hidden field , which will be helpful while submitting the response.
input type='hidden' name='CurrentQuestion' id='CurrentQuestion' value='"+currentField.get_internalName()

var divSurvey='generateRequiredHtml'
document.getElementById('generateRequiredHtmlandAssignThisIDmustPresent').innerHTML =divSurvey ;


6)Pass on the exception to UI by defining the failure function
// Async query failed.
function onFailure(sender, args)

7)To Submit Response to Survey List

function SubmitVote()
//Get the Group of radio Buttons for vote options  and get the selected value
if (undefined === $("input[name='grpRadio']:checked").val())
// do something
alert('Please select any response');
// Get the current context
var context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
// Get the current site (SPWeb)
var web = context.get_web();
// Get the survey list
var list = web.get_lists().getByTitle('surveyListname');
var itemCreateInfo = new SP.ListItemCreationInformation();
var listItem = list.addItem(itemCreateInfo);
var response=document.getElementById('SelectedRadio').value;(response stored in hidden field)
var questionId=document.getElementById('CurrentQuestion').value (question's internal name stored in  hidden field)
/* Set fields in the item.
In managed code, this would be listItem[fieldname] = value.
In Javascript, call listItem.set_item(fieldName,value).
listItem.set_item(questionId, response);

// Create callback handlers
var success = Function.createDelegate(this, this.onSuccessVote);
var failure = Function.createDelegate(this, this.onFailureVote);
// Execute an async query
// Async query succeeded.
function onSuccessVote(sender, args) {
alert('Thanks for responding Survey');
// Refresh the page.
// SP.UI.ModalDialog.RefreshPage(SP.UI.DialogResult.OK);
// Async query failed.
function onFailureVote(sender, args) {

8)Add the above code lines  in txt file as follows

///less than sign![CDATA[   -- above code lines  here--

]]grater than  sign script ends

 //static html  here inside div div to assign generated html)
9)To debug above code place debugger; after any code line,which helps you to debug client object code with Visual Studio debugger.

10)Save this file as .txt file and upload to library and refer this link in content editor  webpart
This post is for good maintainability of code  on Sharepoint site itself .  That's gr8.. .  :)

WebEventReceivers on Publishing Custom Site Template

To Get the Publishing custom site template
type in browser   http://server:port/sites/publishingsite/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx
and save the template.

Prerequisites for Restoring Publishing Custom Site Template without errors
 1)Error for activating feature with specific guid
    If  you restore the Publishing template on  any other non-publishing site collection ,you will get the error for activating feature with specific guid.
To avoid this ,restore this site template in publishing site collection only.

Still if you are getting the error,
Open the WSP Package in Visual Studio 2010
Search for Onet.xml in the solution.
Ctrl+F Find the featureId for which you are getting error.
Activate it in Parent site collection and You are done.

2)Web Page not found error when subsite is created using publishing custom site template.
Write the event Web Event Receiver to set the welcome Page

public class EventReceiver1 : SPWebEventReceiver


public override void WebProvisioned(SPWebEventProperties properties)


SPWeb web = properties.Web;
if (properties.Web.MasterUrl.Contains("MasterPageNameofcustomTemplate") )


web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

SPFolder rootFolder = web.RootFolder;

rootFolder.WelcomePage = "sitepages/customwelcomePage.aspx";


web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;



If you know the better approach to attach event receiver to particular site template only please add the comment

SPDispose Check Results

- I have noticed that objects(SPWeb) created inside for loops are not being disposed. These objects need to be disposed eventhough you main block of code is "Using".

- Also when you use following snippet it will not dispose SPSite object:
using(SPWeb oWeb=new SPSite("http://abc").openWeb())



Here SPSite object is not disposed so follow below style in case of such scenerios:

using(SPSite oSite=new SPSite("url"))


using(SPWeb oWeb=oSite.OpenWeb())





This will solve the problem of disposing.
- Do not use "Using" when you work with SPContext. As SPContext are disposed automatically and if you use withing Using block than it will dispose SPWeb object and page will not work.

Understand the feelings of TFS which is integrated with Sharepoint Project in VS2010 :)

There are lot of enhancements tfs with visual studio 2010 over visual studio 2008.Lot of automatic things. But Some times we need to take care of.
For example,

1)When you move the files from rootfolder to mapped folder ,still the virtual instance of original file remains as it is for that you need to unload the project
Right Click-->unload the project  then again reload.

2)When you delete the Sharepoint Project Items, And you start packaging the solution ,compiler cries  'could not find the deleted file path'.

thus you need to edit the .feature file  and remove the guid projectitemreferance and package again.
you need to edit the .csproj file-->ctrl+f-->Find project referance guid as mentioned above.And remove the referance

If you know better way or best practices working with tfs integrated with sharepoint project please do the comments

Writing Code Behind for MenuItems defined in Custom Action


When ever you want to  add the application page to Particular location in sharepoint site
Get the reference of this site
for example

To add code behind, You need to inherit  the class from MenuItemTemplate, and to Capture the Postback events inherit for Interface IPostBackEventHandler
public class MyListSiteActionMenu : MenuItemTemplate, IPostBackEventHandler
public MyListSiteActionMenu()
this.ID = "myOwnIdHura";

protected override void CreateChildControls()
this.Text = "Delete Item";
this.Description = "Deletes Item";
this.ClientDEFANGED_OnClickPostBackConfirmation = "Are you sure you want to delete this item?";
this.ClientDEFANGED_OnClickUsingPostBackEvent = this.ID;

public void RaisePostBackEvent(string eventArgument)
SPUtility.Redirect(SPContext.Current.List.DefaultViewUrl, SPRedirectFlags.Default, this.Context);

Some more links  adressing postbacks of  Menuitem template

B)Modifing the text of the MenuItem depending on  Custom List Property value

Psedo Code as follows
 //Code to display text of  menuitem depending on Custom List Property value
set the text of menuitem  according to property of list 

RaisePostBackEvent(string eventargument)
//updated list Propery on menuitem click
list.rootfolder.SetProperty() ;

How to enable Powershell’s Integrated scripting environment for running Sharepoint 2010

Run following commands on powershell
Import-Module ServerManager; Add-WindowsFeature PowerShell-ISE
Search for server manager and add this feature as follows

Configuring ISE for sharepoint
• Copy or type the following text in the Command Pane (View > Go to Command Pane) and press ENTER:

# Creates a local user PowerShell ISE profile

if (!(test-path $profile ))

{new-item -type file -path $profile -force}

# opens it for edit

psEdit $profile

• Running these commands will open a new script file in the Script Pane. Type the following commands in the script file and save it by clicking the Save button on the toolbar:

# Copy the following into the new file and save it

cd 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\POWERSHELL\Registration'


cd \

From now on, the SharePoint cmdlets will automatically load every time you start Windows PowerShell ISE as the same user. If you are still having problems using it, you may need to run it as an Administrator by right-clicking the shortcut and selecting Run as administrator (you can also force it to run as an administrator every time by right-clicking the shortcut, selecting Properties and then the Advanced button).

How to Create the Sharepoint 2010 Projects Where MOSS 2010 is not Installed?

Hello EveryOne,

        This article is just for knowledge sake and  to know about managing on machine where sharepoint 2010 is not installed.
If you have installed VS2010(visual studio ultimate) ,& Navigated as  Start ->VS2010 ->Run as administrator->New Project->Sharepoint 2010. You will get the popup that you can not create the sharepoint projects as MOSS 2010 is not installed.

But dont fear,If there is Will , there is Way :-)
Follow me as follows
1)Start -->Run-->RegEdit-->Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0

and Export the file
and Import on  machine where SP2010 is not installed.
2)Now you wont get the popup but it will ask for the url in Wizard.
still go ahead. and put the IP address of the remote server or any dummy url.
and dont click on validate url  and click on finish

3)With this settings you can just  create the wsp but once you click on the Deploy the project
then again You have to face the same error that 'Sharepoint is not installed on local machine'

4)You can put your commands in a PowerShell script (.ps1) file and pass the path of the script file to PowerShell.exe.  Then you can just put this command in your post build event to run your PowerShell script after you compile

5)This will hold the command which will be executing on the remote machine where Sharepoint 2010 is installed.
to enable the remote execution of powershell commands follow the steps as given in this blog

6)If you get 'Access Denied error' while execution of PS commands, then check if Active directory domain services is enabled on Target machine
