Lately I’ve been looking around for some decent rich text editors for use in my asp.net (and SharePoint) applications.
I found this awesome article explaining 20 free rich text editors you can use, some better than others: http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2008/12/20-excellent-free-rich-text-editors/
My favorite ones
As for which ones I would call my favorite (based on functionality, compatibility, performance and ease of deployment) – I would have to say:
- http://freetextbox.com/ [ASP.NET Based Editor]
Just be sure to read the license for each of the different editors. Some are GPL/LGPL, others are completely unlicensed and some uses other licensing models.

This is by no means meant to be anything other than a small tip on how to interact with the object model. If you need more information on how to interact and code with the object model, drop me a comment. But for now this is just to show you guys out there who havn’t done any coding with SharePoint, that it’s actually a piece of cake!
Start off by creating a new Visual Studio 2005 Windows Forms application.
Add the following namespaces: (Administration-namespace might not be needed depending what you want to do further from this point)
Also make sure you’ve got something in the Recyclebin that will show up when we launch our application later:
I made an interface like this, really hot:
Then just add the following simple code:
That’s all there’s too it! It’s not hard at all to interact with the object model. As you can see I’ve used the commonly used SPSite which contains the SPRecycleBinItem. From this point, you should know how to move on with this. An example, all you need to do in order to enable deletion of things in that recyclebin from your application is to use the .Delete() method of the SPRecycleBinItem called rItem in this case.
All very basic, should get you interested if nothing else!

This is the first post I’m making in a series of small "how-to’s" and "aha!"-posts. It will be basic stuff that you often want to know, and why not write them down here instead of in a hidden document that I’ll forget about..
Today’s tip is: Enabling Annonymous Access to your site
- Begin by navigating to central administration (CA from now)
- Choose Application Management
- Choose Authentication Providers in the Application Security section
- Select the correct web application
- Click the Default Zone link
- Check Enable Anonymous Access and hit Save
From the Permissions-page in your site you can choose Settings -> Anonymous Access and from there make ajustments to what permissions anonymous access will have.

In this post I will show you how to configure search by creating a content source that should be indexed and a search scope to limit the results when searcing. I will also show you how to customize the Search Center and adding a tab with a custom search and search results page.
I will walk you though how to set up searchscopes and content sources (such as fileshares).
We will begin by creating a content source and a search scope This will presume that youve got a network share with files and folders, e.g. the share whateversomeShare mapped against Z: on your local system.
1. Open SharePoint Central Administration and the Shared Services Provider admin site.
2. Open the Search Settings page
3. Choose the Content Sources link in the Crawl Settings section.
4. Choose New Content Source in the toolbar menu
5. Enter a name (I used "Demo Documents")
6. Choose File Shares as Content Source Type
7. Enter the start address (e.g. whateversomeShare)
8. Choose if it should include all subfolders or not under Crawl Settings
9. Set a schedule of your preference and choose to start the crawl if you want, then click OK
10. It should now look something similar to this image:
(Image broken due to SharePointBlogs.com crash )
Now you need to start the crawl, if you didn’t do so when creating the content source
Creating a scope to narrow down the search results to only file shares
1. Navigate to Site Settings
2. Click on View Scopes in the Scope Settings section
3. Click Create New Scope in the toolbar and enter e.g. "File Shares" as the name and click OK
4. Note that the "Items" column states "Empty".
5. Click on the name (File Shares) to navigate to the Scope Properties and Rules page
6. Select "Empty > Add rules"
7. Select "Demo Documents" in the Content Scope and press OK to create the rule.
8. Now note that it says "New Scope – Ready after the next update (starts in n minutes)." To avoid this waitint time, go back to the Search Settings and click "Start Update Now" under the Scopes section.
9. Click the Site Settings menu at the top right of this site collection and choose Search scopes
10. Click the "Search Dropdown" display group and then check the "File Shares" scope and click OK.
11. Go to the Search Center to validate that the scope actually works and shows in the drop down

Monday through wednesday (today) I went the T2617 course held by Göran Husman, Sweden’s only MVP in sharePoint. The overall impression was great, and my thanks goes out to Göran who did a great job as the tutor.
I will in my upcoming post(s) describe some of the subjects covered, and what that really means. I will set up a MOSS 2007 labenvironment on which I’ll make some examples and try to explain some general concepts that are new for 2007.
I’ll update you guys in a couple of days.
