For the SharePoint 2010 release, we’re trying something a little different with our sample code solutions. During the Beta timeframe, we’re going to be posting them to Code Gallery, rather than waiting to release them in the SharePoint 2010 SDK for the first time at RTM. This will let developers benefit from having the code samples available as early as possible. And we’re hoping it’ll benefit the code samples by having the SharePoint developer community giving us feedback on the samples and how we can make them better. We’ll include the code samples in their final form in the SharePoint 2010 SDK download at RTM.
We’ll be keeping the list below up-to-date each time we release a new code sample, so you might want to bookmark this post. (We’ve already got three samples posted, and the SharePoint 2010 Beta isn’t scheduled for public availability until next month.)
Unless otherwise noted, each code sample is written in C#.
SharePoint Foundation 2010 Code Samples
This sample is a custom content class that implements Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Backup.IBackupRestore. Objects that instantiate this interface appear in the backup/restore UI of the SharePoint Central Administration application as items that can be selected for backup or restoration.
SharePoint Server 2010 Code Samples
A console application that demonstrates the basic functions of a custom activity feed gatherer application.
This sample creates a custom activity feed gatherer and demonstrates how to use the new Activity Feed object model in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. The sample creates custom ActivityTemplate, ActivityType, and ActivityEvent objects and shows how to publish and multicast events from a custom gatherer. Console output verifies that each step in the application is finished.
A Web part that displays social data statistics.
This sample consists of a Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Visual Web part project. After you build and deploy this project on your Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 site, you can add this Web part to any page where you want to display statistics for the social tagging activities of your users. The Web part displays the following information in three tables:
· Each URL that has been tagged, and the terms with which each URL has been tagged.
· Each term that has been used in a social tag, and the number of times that term has been used.
· Each user who has added a social tag, and the number of times that user has tagged URLs.
The sample demonstrates how to use the new Social Data object model in SharePoint Server 2010. It also takes advantage of the SharePoint Visual Web Part template, one of the new SharePoint templates that you can use in Visual Studio 2010.
