Developing Solutions - WebParts

  • WebParts are the basic building blocks of SharePoint sites.

  • WebParts are ASP.NET Custom Controls that inherit from the WebPart base class.

  • WebParts can communicate with other web parts to pass information and coordinate tasks.

  • These components are packaged into .NET assemblies that are then deployed to the SharePoint site. They can then be used on SharePoint pages.

Summary l.jpg

  • “SharePoint” is an umbrella term for Microsoft’s collaborative web technologies including both WSS and SPS.

  • Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) is a set of web server extensions that are part of Windows 2003 and allow teams to quickly create and manage a simple hierarchy of collaborative web sites.

  • Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server (SPS) is a server product built on WSS that brings together collections of WSS site hierarchies into a single, centrally-managed portal. SPS provides services such as search capabilities that can be shared across all sites in the organization.

  • WebParts are the key building block for adding custom content to SharePoint-based solutions. A WebPart is an ASP.NET custom control that is designed to be managed by SharePoint’s infrastructure.
