  4. I saw you post on some dude’s blog:

    Hey Manish,

    I must say that your post is very good and useful, because you have given very good description of each and every attribute. Nice work.

    I have one problem into CustomAction tag, if I use location as “Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu” and GroupID as “NewMenu” then it didn’t work for me, I mean, I can’t see my custom link into “NEW” menu, if I didn’t use for specific list and remove RegistrationType and RegistrationID then it’s working fine and I can see new custom item into all lists, but I would like to display new custom menu into “NEW” item for specific list.

    Do you have any idea what I need to change or where I am missing? I just changed below lines as per your example of “MY DOCLIB NEW CUSTOM ACTION BUTTON”

    Id = “CustNewLink”
    RegistrationType=”ContentType” RegistrationId=”0x0101006F0588113A5C1F439B176C99A35B41C5″
    Title = “Custom Create Title”
    Description = “description goes here.”
    GroupId = “NewMenu”
    Location = “Microsoft.SharePoint.StandardMenu”

    Above code didn’t work. Please help.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sanket Shah

    Did you solve this issue and how did you do it. Experiencing the same thing.

    Thank you.

  5. Hey Sanket, Nice to see your blogs. Good way to go!!!

  6. I am new to sharepoint. I have a list , I need to create a subsite for each and every item in the list using code.I need to create subsites for already existing items in the list and also I need a subsite for a new item added to the list.It is really very very urgent can you Help me out sanketh?

    • Hi Vishal,

      Sorry for the late reply!

      It requires some parameters/inputs for creating new site/sub-site from the object model code, i.e. web site URL, web site name, web site description, port address and many more.

      I am hoping that you will be having all above parameters into your list from where you want to create new sub-site for each items from the code.

      Here are some links from where you will get exact code for how to create site from code.



      Now as per your requirements:

      1#) Creating site for existing records/items into SharePoint List: You need to write and add above code into small utility program which will go into existing list and take each item and create site for you.

      2#) Creating site for new records/items into SharePoint List: You need to write event handler on “Itemadded” event and write above code into event handler which will create site when any user create new item into SharePoint list.

      I hope you will get solution from above mentioned steps, if not then please let me know if you need any other information.
