sharepoint 2003 development

  Asked By: Palak    Date: Sep 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 778

My team is new to sharepoint development. We are currently using
SPS2003 and Visual Studio 2005. One of my questions is where do you get
the web part templates to install into VS2005? Also, how do you go
about opening a portal page using VS?

I know these are very elementary questions, and I appologize for that.
Is there a document somewhere that walks through these steps?

SPS2003 is based on v1.1 of the .Net Framework. Visual Studio 2005 compiles to
v2.0 of the framework. The web part templates for SPS2003/WSSv2 are designed for
Visual Studio 2003.

Editing portal pages is a very complex topic. You *can* edit them in FrontPage
2003, but there are issues you should be aware of before doing so. Search for

do you know of any documentation that could get us started
in the development  of some of our portal pages?

Well, you didn't specify what you are looking for, so it is hard to say for sure.

A good starting point may be http://www.intranetjournal.com/sharepoint. There
are articles that that cover a wide variety of topics.

SPS2003 development  was done using Visual Studio .NET. Microsoft never
created a set of templates for VS 2005 to be used to create SPS 2003
webparts. VS 2005 extensions were created for MOSS 2007. You can create
Sharepoint 2003 webparts using VS 2005, but it requires a lot of manual
effort. Easier to find an old copy of VS.NET and use that. The templates
for that are located here:
