My Key Note Demo – SharePoint v3 OM, SharePoint v3 Workflow, InfoPath and Office 2007 Client Add-Ins


The past two months, May and June, where just amazing. So many events and lots of changes – for me personally as well;)


Yesterday and today we had the last large events before summer – the Office System Developer’s Conference and the 16. Architect forum. For the OfficeDevCon I used a enhanced and updated version of the demo I have prepared for BigDays 2006.


Now, that Beta 2 of Office 2007 has arrived, I want to share this demo with you all folks. It really shows, how to put all the things together to a solution: I started with developing a Workflow for Windows SharePoint Services v3 and Workflow Foundation that controls it’s flow based on InfoPath Forms submitted to a forms library (Bug Request:)). Then I have extended the SharePoint v3 Web Services infrastructure with custom Web Services where I am using the SharePoint v3 Object Model to get the contents out of the form library and provide the information to client applications. Oh yes, and the last piece is a Excel 2007 and Word 2007 Add-In that extends the Ribbon and adds a custom task pane to get the information from the form library right into the client applications.


Although it would have been possible to solve some things cleaner, I think it is really a nice demo showing the capabilities of the next generation of Office… So download it (attachment of this post), try it and get your ideas out of it…

    The previous post shows how to run WPF XBAP with Gadget (the steps are fine). Well, I´m working in a gagdet with WPF. In Vista Beta 2, the only zone running correctly with gadget is Local Intranet. If IFRAME source (is a XBAP or a simple HTML) running in others zone (Computer, Internet, Trusted Sites, …) the Gadget don´t run!!! Are you experienced with this issue? In my point of view, this is a Sidebar bug.
