Web Part's RenderWebPart() method Code Problem

  Asked By: Quinton    Date: Nov 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2585

Can anyone confirm that this code does/does not work when running from a
working Web Part's RenderWebPart() method:
output.Write("<h1>" + virtualServers[0].Sites.Count.ToString() +

I consistently receive this error message:
Cannot complete this action. Please try again.

The code I really want to run is this, but it fails for the same reason:
SPSiteCollection sites = virtualServer.Sites;
foreach(SPSite site in sites)
output.Write("--" + site.Url + "<br>");

I think that this may be a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services bug,
but I need someone to confirm.

Your object virtualServers is of what type? SPSite?

Answer #2    Answered By: Ernesto Dawson     Answered On: Nov 29

Whoops. Here is the definition for virtualServers:
SPGlobalAdmin globalAdmin = new SPGlobalAdmin();
SPVirtualServerCollection virtualServers =

Trying to keep it short and sweet for the group I left out a crucial
piece of the code, sorry. I only recently became aware that an
SPVirtualServer had an SPSiteCollection object property. I'd like to
iterate thru the entire farm but this code  is preventing me.

As a side note, it also sheds some light on why we all have to use
SPSite for the site  collection and SPWeb for each site in that
collection. But if the virtual server object isn't going to properly
implement the site collection I wish they would not have used the good
object name.

When I put it in a try/catch block and send the exception error  to the screen, I
get the following error message:

Request for the permission of type

Raise your trust level to Full for the test.

Now I just get the following error  message:

"Cannot complete  this action. Please try again."

That is the same error  message that I get. Aaron said that it is working
for him. I wonder what we are doing different.
