SharePoint Custom Web Parts from Cheers (The TV Show)
So there I was -- another day of writing slick AJAXified custom SharePoint web parts. This was a simple one. A series of dropdowns that cause subsequent dropdowns to be re-populated with increasingly restrictive data. Planet Continent Country etc. But, when I changed the planet choice to be "Earth" the continent choice DID populate with the continents on earth but it caused a complete page round trip -- not the smooth AJAXified action I expected. Plus, my UpdateProgress panel wasn't being displayed ......

Debugging Half-Installed-AJAX on SharePoint
You've been there. "It works on my box!" Our new SharePoint web parts don't work in production! This project called for a suite of data entry grids inside custom SharePoint web parts. The customer already owned Infragistics' NetAdvantage for ASP.NET so I used their UltraWebGrid. Very slick and easy to deploy with your custom web parts. The primary feature they wanted was the cool Excel-like cut-n-paste functionality but that wasn't working in our production environment. At the beginning of the project, ......
