Nevron Vision for SharePoint Documentation
Connecting to a SharePoint List

SharePoint Lists are the foundation on which sites are build. Lists are automatically generated by SharePoint for different types of SharePoint infrastructural information. Of particular importance is that lists can be created and edited by SharePoint users, which allows you to feed Nevron web parts with any custom data.

The SharePoint List connection panel is displayed when you select the Share Point List option from the Data Source Type combo:

The connection is defined by the following settings:

Site Mode - lets you select the way in which the web part will connect to the site and web. The possible options are:

Static Site - the site is specified explicitly from the Site setting. The web is specified relatively to the site.
Current Site - only the site is obtained dynamically (the site is the current site in which the web part resides). The web is specified relatively to the site from the Web setting.
Current Web - both the site and web are obtained dynamically (e.g. binds to the current web of the current site in which the web part resides).

Site - only available in Static Site mode. The web part will automatically enumerate the currently available sites in all web applications for you. If you see the site in the combo just pick it - otherwise manually specify it in the site text box.

Web - only available in Static Site and Current Site modes. For the site that you have chosen, the web part automatically enumerates the server relative paths of all webs beneath it. If you see the web just pick it - otherwise manually specify it in the web text box.

List - for the site and web that you have chosen, the web part will automatically enumerate all available lists. If you see the list in the combo just pick it - otherwise manually specify it in the list text box.

View - this setting is optional and lets you select a list view. If the view setting is set to an empty (blank) string the web part will connect to the default list view.

The Site, Web, List and View can be specified with GUIDs too.
All properties of the SharePoint List connection can be specified with expressions too.
