Brilliant News Site

Been swamped for waaaaayyyy to long. Finally getting through stuff and reading some old blogs. I found this awesome news site off of the Scobleizer.

Sharepoint Lists - Getting the Field Data via [SPList].Items.GetDataTable

As part of our sharepoint image library project we've added some custom fields to the image lists. I accidently stumbled upon an interesting method today to get the data out, though. the Items collection of a list has a GetDataTable method that gets the entire field collection across each item in the list into - yes, you guessed it - a datatable.

hmmm, this opens some interesting possibilities for binding, etc...

A slow blog month...but loads of content to come

Ok, I know I've been a bit lagging on the blog front this last few weeks. I've barely been reading, let alone posting. This seems to be a slow month for quite a few people blog-wise as the end of the year approaches. I've been seriously ducked under with work, but I'm hoping to be clear from about next week. In the meantime, I've also been working on other content. I'm just about done with an article on some of the real nitty-gritty bits of working with typed datasets. It's a sort of a follow up to a recent msdn article, but gets much into some of the difficulties and work arounds needed.

Also, I've finished the No Touch Deployment app to get images into Sharepoint. It's working well so far, but my tester will find out how stable it is ;-). I've got some Sharepoint articles brewing in the brain too... Watch this space.
