Friday, March 06, 2009 10:28 PMThe custom control I had developed for TFS Explorer I now need to revise for tfs WebAccess. The control had a pop-up dialog form which I know can be a tricky concept for Web development.
My simple approach before was to gather information from the dialog (note type-comboBox and note- text field) and add it as a record into my datagrid.
Can anybody suggest an approach for my custom control?

You may want to take a look at the sample WorkItemIdReference custom control we ship with Web Access to get started. It sounds like you're trying to build something similar. To find the sample code, please look in the SDK directory under Web Access installation folder.
Let us know if you have any other questions,

Monday, March 09, 2009 6:24 PMYes, I used this concept in the development of the control for TFS explorer last year. This works nicely but it is using the built in components of TFS and TFSWebAccess. In that version I had used a popup window with properties I would retreive from the main component. My WebAccess control will most likely resemble the Attachments or or Links tabs in that I have a grid control and will most likely need a HTML link to an Add/Edit page for adding the notes. Notestypes will be picked from a combo box with note types supplied by the properties bag.
The concept I'm being a little thick on is how do I get the information from this popup or html page back to the work item being saved?
I may be just overthinking this or just not seeing the whole picture. I have been looking at the sdk, I am finding it pretty vauge although after studying numerous times it makes a little more since. Sorry, I only do enough Web stuff to be dangerous, I'm more of Widows developer. Unforturnately, I also also don't see a whole lot done with WebAccess components on the Web and everybody refers to the same documented(or lack of) sdk.

did someone find a solution for this?
I'm trying to implement such a control but I don't find the right way to achieve this.
