I have a Portal and 48 WSS sites under it. I am creating a custom webpart that
needs to go into the Portal. This webpart needs to crawl all the WSS sites and
find the new Announcements in them and display them.

I have managed to crawl and retrieve the data. I have it as
SPListItemCollection object for each site. To display the data I looked around
for some info on ListViewWebPart/DataViewWebPart, but cud not. So I used a
DataGrid and used the GetDataTable method of SPListItemCollection to get to the
data. But the news items are displayed as raw text. The links etc. are
missing. they are not connected to the actual news items.

Since the data is extracted from a list, it should be possible to display them
using a ListViewWebPart and get the same look and feel. Also I need to know how
all the SPListItemCollections can be merged into one.

Any ideas??

I've no clue how to solve this programmatically, but you could use web parts from CorasWorks to solve this problem. Check out www.corasworks.net/.../ara.html for details.

Didn't find what you were looking for? Find more on ListViewWebPart? Or get search suggestion and latest updates.
