2007 web part problem

  Asked By: Chaim    Date: Apr 14    Category: MOSS    Views: 814

I'm trying to deploy a HelloWorld web part. I am following the
following steps:


This works fine for C#. However, when I create a vb web part I
cannot get the web part to show up in the gallery after I deploy it
to the bin folder. I'm guessing it has something to do with the
AssemblyInfo.vb file being in a different location than it is in a
c# project (When I create a new vb class library, it creates
AssemblyInfo .vb in the My Projects folder instead of the Properties
folder like in C#). I checked the vbproj file and it does look like
it is compiling the correct file, however.

Does anyone have any step by step guidance to creating a vb web part
(or idea what I'm doing wrong)? I've seen Ted Pattison's demo on
channel9, but he's developing on the server, while I'm developing on
my local machine.

Developing on the server  vs. your local  machine won’t have an impact since, like this guy’s blog post, it’s a pure ASP.NET 2.0 Web Part (assuming you aren’t using the Microsoft.SharePoint.*.WebPart class).

Have you made sure you’ve listed it in the safe controls? Added it to the gallery?

Answer #2    Answered By: Patricia Richardson     Answered On: Apr 14

Yes, I've added it to the safe controls. Exactly like I did for the
c# web  part. I don't see the HelloWorld.webpart entry on the
following page:

Web part  Gallery: New Web Parts

This list displays all available Web Parts for this gallery. Select
each Web Part you want to add, and then click Populate Gallery.

I will to create  another one, but I still don't think that I've done
anything differently.

There’s nothing special about a VB Web Part when compared to a C# Web Part… so I’m not sure what the problem  is, but comparing the two should help. I’m a C# guy so I can’t be of too much help debugging VB.

It is frustrating because I can create  a C#
web part  in about 30 seconds now. I just cannot get a vb.net one to
deploy for me. And it should be so easy...

If anyone out there has deployed a vb.net web  part please post the
steps you've followed!

Created one in 30 seconds? Any chance you’re considering switching ot the dark side with is lowly C#’rs?

It all depends on how good the food is on the darkside.
