Paging problem in Data Form Webpart SP2010
Dears, I’ve been facing a bug in the paging of the data form webpart which occurs when the asynchronous update is enabled. The issue is that when you click the previous button, then it’ll redirect you to the previous page as it invokes a call to history.back() javascript function. I’ve done some modifications in the XSLT in order to make this work: • Open the code view and search for a <td> that has a class named “ms-paging” and then paste those lines before the starting of the td tag: <xsl:variable ......

Granular backup/restore in Sharepoint 2010
Dears, I've just recently tried the new feature in SP2010 which is granular backup and restore.

Http Modules in Sharepoint 2010
Dears, Another thing I've faced is that I had to do URL rewriting according to a client cookie.So, first thing came into my mind is writing an Http Module to do the job.

Turn off Automatic daylight saving in Sharepoint 2010
Hello, I've not been blogging for the past 2 months maybe because of being extremely busy. Anyways, one of the topics that I've faced is that the government in my country decided to not use daylight saving anymore. So, in order to make sharepoint understand this you'll probably have to do it manually like this: Go to edit the timezone.xml file found in \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG Take a backup in case something went wrong and then search for your city ......
