Extending Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer with Custom Controls, WebParts, and Workflow Activities
Play Extending Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer with Custom Controls, WebParts, and Workflow Activities
In this session, we learn how to extend the components available to SharePoint Designer users by creating and installing custom elements to our SharePoint server. We use Microsoft Visual Studio and other tools to develop new ASP.NET Controls and WebParts, make them available in SharePoint Designer, and enable accurate design-time previews and property grids. We also create new Workflow Activities and integrate them into our sentence-based Workflow Designer. Finally, we cover some of the many tools and tips for developing, packaging, managing, and deploying solutions that contain these custom elements.
