WSS 3.0 - Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ListViewWebPart

  Asked By: Bahadur    Date: May 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2190

I really would like to customize the ListViewWebPart. I would like to
be able to have a ListViewWebPart that lists items from a list on
another site. Is this possible? As I can see its not, the
ListViewWebPart is a sealed class so I cant inherit from it. Are there
webparts to "buy" that supports listing items from another site? I know
there is the "Content Query Web Part". But with this you only get a
link to the items. Maybe someone has another idea to accomplish what I

Second I would like to change the rendering so if it is a
documentlibrary it would render a treestructure. Any idea how to fix
this? WebParts to buy?

Either you can go for RSS Feed or build a smile webpart that iterates
items from list(s). I think you might even think of googling it out for
such web  part in handy....

The Content Query web  part will work for sites in the same site
collection and can be extended to list  most any file you like by
customizing the xslt. A Data View web part  can also be used and can
access any site  via the web service interfaces.

But can you in these webparts  use a toolbar and a dropdownmenu on
each item as you can in the listviewwebpart? Because thats what I
want. I want a webpart that works excactly as the listviewwebpart  but
with the possibility to show its content  from another site.

No, they cannot (at least not  OOTB) and to the best of my knowledge no
such web  part currently exists. If you have a lot of XML/XSLT/CSS
expertise, you might be able to take an existing list  view, convert it
to a Data View in SharePoint Designer, then much with the XSL and data
sources to get what you want. I've not tried it personally, so I don't
know how feasible that approach is and how close you'll be able to get
to what you want.
