Using VS.NET to create NEW module for Portal Starter Kit
I'm trying to build my 1st NEW module for the portal starter kit, but I'm not sure what VS.NET is doing...it seems to be creating the wrong 'inherits from'
This is the beginning of my new module codebehind file

This is the beginning of an existing module codebehind (that works)
Public MustInherit Class Announcements
Any ideas on what the correct inherits statement should be for the new module?
Should i change 'Inherits System.Web.UI.Page' to 'Inherits ASPNET.StarterKit.Portal.PortalModuleControl' and/or do something else also?
OK I figured it out

the ASPNET.StarterKit.Portal.PortalModuleControl evidently inherits from the System.Web.UI.Page,so everything works from there on out.

yeah - with limited sucess as things started to go screwey after a while with the containers - it is something I still want to get working - but I dont seem to have the time to do so at the momentVarious IBS Addons available at http://www.snowcovered.comLead Developer [vb & c#] - MCAD
I have been able to do it, just displaying information in datagrids, but I had to pass variables in the URL to keep the nested module active and visible as the page refreshes.DarmarkMark as Answer, if this reply answers your post.

I'm a complete novice, just installed the Portal Starter Kit last week, and am tring to create a staff directory using the delivered contacts module.
Records are displayed in database order so, if a new record is created it will display at the end of the list, not in alphabetical order. Is there a way to sort the list before it is displayed?
Also, does anyone know how to changed the field labels (e.g. from 'contact 2' to 'photo')

I have one module that generates a report AND updates a database with information which another module on the same tab uses to generate its display. But after the user gets the report the information isn't automatically displayed in the other module. Wondering if I can refresh the one module from the other.
Even better, is there a way to access controsl on one module from another module? Somehow I'm thinking no...
I am assuming that your second module (the non update one) retreives information from the same database, assuming this is correct you could simply make the module go and collect information from the DB each time you load the page although this could be a big performance hit if you retreive a lot of data, but effectively this is what you are trying to do. To do this remove your database retrieval from your 'if' statement checking for IsPostBack (that is assuming this is how you went about designing your module).

Yes, I believe you are looking for the ModuleCommunication framework, you can download a simple example for my website on the downloads page: http://www.brainal.com/aspnetportal/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=10 then download Module Communicator Example - Version 2.0.0
There are also some other great examples here on the forums, just do a search for IModuleCommunication.

GreetingsI am creating a support system module which will require the ability to add sub modules. For example, there is an admininstrators section in which suport requests are administered, anwsered, solved etc.There is to be another function in the admin section of the support module in which admins can upload a new support form template module, ie, say an admin wants to set up a form for users to lodge a request for new hardware, the form will display all required fields, graphics, validation etc for that request. Another support form template might be to have a new user set up on the active directory so the form will include fields for name, email, dept, phone etc.these submodules are not to be viewed in the admin panel at the top of DNN but only in the admin section of the support module. can someone give me some advice on how I can build a module that will allow submodules to be added to it? Is it even possible?Thanks in advance...Modules Containing Modules
I have no idea if this is possible or not, but I'm keeping my fingers

I am looking to create a Forum module like this forum.So I looked at this starter kit to get some ideas.
But I find that the forum is containing only links and doing static message display.In other words it is not what it shud be.
Can some one who has a good idea about creating forums tell the concept that goes behind creating a fully working one. The messages shud be stored
in XML files and not database. If you can provide code it will be still better. It will be good if you can provide step-by step instructions. How to integrate the FCK editor into a web page?

Hi DNN Community,
I've developed a DNN module (let's call it module X) which is included in my DNN website as a private assembly. However, I'l like to add a scrolling marque usercontrol to my module X. As a start, I purchased a scrolling marquee module from snowcovered which works great as a stand alone module. However, I'd like to modify this module so it fits into my module X. Can anyone explain to me how to do this, and if there is any source code available where I could see how this is done.
