Been absent from here for some bit...
I've been logging many hours trying to move my application from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2013. Most of it has gone well enough. I don't have supportive IT folk right now. (They [he] are [is] swamped.).
The pictures attached are my answer to not being able to use the DVWP. So far I like them quite a bit. I cannot use the DVWP as I am not permitted to modify the .aspx files on the new 2013 server as I was on the 2007 version. I am working to get these permissions, but IT is not understanding the level of complexity of my corner of our SharePoint server. (Most of the organization I work for the folks just show lists and don't dynamically display any data.)
Here I have made heavy use of +Marc D Anderson
's SPservices and pushed the resulting data through the solution referenced here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25712917/how-to-create-curved-overlapping-menu-tabs-in-css
as created by Roko C. Buljan.
The tabs are items from a SharePoint list. The visible panes below are selectively revealed by jquery <div>s. It responds well. There are 4500 items in the source list. I split it out among 58 individual geographical locations/page and 19 tabs.The downfall
: As I have created this client side from scratch, I have lot the ability for the end user to upload. With SharePoint 2013 and the almost mostly modern browser (IE 9), the default upload means is the new drag and drop function. The 2007 way of doing things, I'd just poke at the site enough to generate a call to Upload.aspx. Now I'll need to build one more by hand. I am currently looking to adapt what was done here: http://sympmarc.com/2010/10/15/a-jquery-library-for-sharepoint-web-services-wss-3-0-and-moss-real-world-example-part-4/
(Thanks again to +Marc D Anderson
) to add a link to the bottom of my display.
In the fantasy realm of things. I'd love to co-opt the function of dragdrop.js that SharePoint uses natively. My guess is that I could attach a function from within dragdrop.js do the <div> that surrounds my data. It seems that dragdrop.js generates a call to upload.aspx at the end of things anyway. I just want to be able to drop the data within that call to meet the needs whereby my users could upload.
Has anyone dug into dragdrop.js to do something along these lines and/or encountered a reference to the calls within that file?
I appreciate you standing by and reading all this. Good luck in all you do!
