All about the Document Information Panel and InfoPath issues

יום חמישי, נובמבר 1, 2007

Hi, The Document Information Panel (AKA the DIP) is one of the coolest features in the Office System 2007 integration. If you saw it - it allows you to fill in the Document Library/Content Type metadata within the document and even bind some of the metadata into the document's body. And guess what - This is only the beginning! It's true that Sharepoint auto-builds a very nice DIP according the relevant metadata but the really neat thing about it is that you can easily customize it with the full power of InfoPath 2007. For example: I have a customer...

How does Word communicate with MOSS? A bit about WSS RPC

Performance Update for Outlook 2007

יום שלישי, אפריל 17, 2007

Hey, I have a confection to make: I love the new Outlook even though it has no ribbon. Yep, the sexy To-Do Bar and the cool integration with MOSS 2007 does it to me so I'm satisfying my ribbon fix elsewhere. But like all good love stories, sometime I find myself staring at the screen when Outlook is one and wishing I could just kill him slowly and painfully - one DLL after another... This is not an hardware problem. My laptop is packed with all of the nesseray performance goodies available (dual core, 2 GB Ram and most impotent: NO Vista - I recently moved to Windows 2003 R2 with an...
