Getting a list of all pages and all web parts on one page

Hi, is it possible to get a list of all pages in the portal in, for example, a treeview, with the WebParts info dynamic loaded from Personalization? Something like:


The pages (info) is actually stored in a DB and retrieved dynamic on loading (pretty much as I tried to explain on my blog).
I'm using a MasterPage and load a Custom Control with Zones in the ContentPlaceHolder. Thank to URL rewriting, I am able to perform Personalization on the rewritten URL and overwriting the Personalization provider.
This means that all my "PersonalizationBlobs" should be retrievable by path. Question is if I can do something with this Blob without actually being on that particular page. And how to get it into "readable" data?

Is there a way that I can create an instance of the PersonalizationManager and set it on retrieving the data for a specific path?
Somthing like...

PersonalizationManager m = new PersonalizationManager();
m.Path = "~/PathSavedInDB/";

Which will allow me to loop through the Zones and WebParts of that page/path?

yeah, thanks for you reply, but that is only for web parts and web zones on the current executing page. I want to access all zones and web parts of ALL pages (paths in the personalization database) on 1 page.
More sometime like

foreach (path in paths)
   get webpartmanager of path
   foreach (zone)
      foreach (webpart)

I've seen a solution in Darren Neimke's book "ASP.NET 2.0 Web Parts In Action" (highly recommended) that uses the BuildManager to execute the Page and it loads the Webparts by


You can get all webpartpages by

PersonalizationStateInfoCollection psic = PersonalizationAdministration.GetAllState(.,.,.,.);

foreach(PersonalizationStateInfo psi in psic)
{ apply the BuildManager stuff}


But I can't exactly remember how the BuildManger.CreateInstanceFromVirtualPath stuff really works. You have to google.


Hope this Helps,

Thank you very much for the response. It is exactly what I was looking for. As a matter of fakt, I was reading that book but other more urgent things came along so I had to put it aside before I came to that section. I just found it in the book and will have a look at it as soon as I have time again.

Seems like the BuildManager class is indeed the way to execute the page silently and so retrieve the web parts on it :D

I see if I can write an article about it on my blog as soon as I understand the concept.

Is it possible to embed part of one web page into another web page?
Any answers will be highly appreciated.  Thanks. If you can adjust the page you want to embed onto the other page, you could use a .ascx (web forms control).  Then you can add controls to it and just drag and drop it using VS.NET from the Solution Explorer window to the webform.  You can then also embed it onto other pages in that same web project easily by drag n drop.  I hope this helps, it's not exactly a portion of a web page but may be an acceptable alternative for you.Rachel AppelMVP - ASPInsider In order to better answer this, I could use some details as ...

Web page opens second web page, how does first page know when the second one closes?
I have an app written in ASP.NET where one of the web pages opens up a web page in a second window.  When this second web page closes, the first web page needs to update its data.  How do you do this? You can have the child window call a parent method when the user clicks a link to close it. Otherwise, you'd have to set up polling to check for the existence of the child, and refresh if it doesn't exist. Please Mark As Answer posts that helped you."If we learn from our mistakes, I should be brilliant by now."

How can an update in one part of a page cause an update in other parts of the same page?
I have an web page that describes information relating to a single test case in our automated test system. Much of the information is embedded in various controls (ascx files). Some information is displayed in relation to test results and also in a summary table. This means that the same data may be displayed in two places on the same page. This obviously means that when the data is updated in one place, the other part of the page that contains the same data (or the entire page) must also be updated. The data in question is held in grids, so it may be updated, deleted or a new row i...
