Together with SharePoint legends Box Fox and Spence Harbar, I have the privilege to also host a session at the Software Development Network in Houten (the Netherlands) on the 26th of June! While Bob and Spence are covering the following topics
I will be talking about SharePoint Application Pages..
When you are developing custom solutions on top of SharePoint you often need a page (or maybe even more) in Central Admin where you can configure your solution. And of course you want to this page to look like a SharePoint page and probably you also want to use the SharePoint controls because, if you are like me, you are a lazy developer and don’t want to reinvent the wheel over and over gain. Aside to settings the configuration you are also interested in how to store your configuration.
My session will be about creating those fancy application pages and can be summarized into the following bullets :
- What is an Application Page?
- What SharePoint controls are there for me to re-use?
- How do I store my configuration?
- The things I’ve learned with custom timer jobs
