Module 1: Introduction to Web Parts for Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies
  • This unit explains the concepts behind Web Parts, which are a type of ASP.NET server control. Unlike standard ASP.NET controls, which are added to Web form pages by programmers at design time, Web Parts are added to Web Part Zones on Web Part Pages by users at run time.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Describe the origins and evolution of Web Parts technology. Describe the fundamentals of Web Parts infrastructure.

Module 2: Adding Web Parts to Pages
  • This unit explains how to add Web Parts to pages. Web Parts are componentized Web page elements that allow developers to create modular Web sites. Actions such as closing and deleting Web Parts will be explained in detail. This unit also introduces how to modify Web Part Pages and set Web Part properties.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Add a Web Part from any of the four default Windows® SharePoint Services Web Part galleries to a SharePoint Web Part page. Close and delete Web Parts. Modify Web Parts. Set properties for Web Parts.

Module 3: Using Web Part Templates in Visual Studio .NET
  • This unit explains how to use Web Part templates in Visual Studio .NET. Since Web Parts are ASP.NET custom controls, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET provides an excellent environment for creating and debugging Web Parts. This unit also introduces the Visual Studio .NET Web Part Library templates for both C# and Visual Basic .NET.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Create a Simple Web Part Library Project. Add a New File to a Web Part Library Project. Set the Output Path for a Web Part Project.

Module 4: Web Parts as ASP.NET Custom Controls
  • Creating Web Parts is a variation on the process of creating ASP.NET custom controls. To create effective Web Parts, it is important to understand the similarities and differences between Web Parts and other ASP.NET custom controls.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Compare Web Parts to other ASP.NET custom controls. Create Web Part classes. Add child controls to Web Parts. Render HTML for a Web Part. Create and display custom properties.
top
Module 5: Connecting Web Parts
  • This unit explains how to connect Web Parts. The Web Part infrastructure provides rich support for communication between Web Parts. Developers can use standard interfaces to create Web Parts that can exchange information with each other.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Describe Web Part connections in a browser and in FrontPage 2003. Describe the Web Part interfaces. Implement a Web Part.

Module 6: Packaging and Deploying Web Parts
  • This unit explains how to package and deploy Web Parts using administrative tools provided with Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Describe the components of a Web Part package. Describe the concept of deploying a Web Part package. Build a Web Part package. Add a Web Part package. Delete a Web Part package. Enumerate Web Part packages. Export and import .dwp files. Add Web Parts to Web Part pages. Set Web Part properties.

Module 7: Web Part Security
  • Microsoft ASP.NET 1.1 enables Web applications to operate in a partially trusted environment. This unit describes how Windows SharePoint Services implements custom security permissions and policy files.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Describe the manner in which Windows SharePoint Services uses ASP.NET 1.1 enabled code access security. Define both default security permissions for Windows SharePoint Services. Designate Web Parts as safe to make them available on the virtual server. Use code access security to ensure your Web Part assemblies get required permissions. Identify Windows SharePoint Services default trust level values. Edit and create policy configuration files.

Module 8: Exploring the Windows SharePoint Services Object Model
  • In this unit, you will use Visual Studio .NET to program the Windows SharePoint Services object model, which is integrated with Microsoft ASP.NET. This enables developers to program the Windows SharePoint Services object model in a Microsoft Visual Studio .NET environment to customize Web Parts for use in a Windows SharePoint Services deployment.
  • Unit Objectives
  • After completing this unit, students will be able to: Understand the capabilities of Windows SharePoint Services Object Model. Use Visual Studio .NET to program Windows SharePoint Services Object Model.
