Filed under: Sharepoint,SmartPart — patrickyong @ 6:37 am

Jan Tielen give SharePoint developers a nice Valentine gift yesterday when he takes Return of SmartPart 1.3 out of beta. Quoted from his blog, “For those of you who don’t know the SmartPart: it’s a generic web part wrapper for SharePoint 2007 which can host any ASP.NET Web User Controls. So basically you can build web parts by using the Visual Studio designers instead of having to write all the code by hand.” Now it gives you the capability to develop AJAX enable webpart easily. Download it here and below is the tutorial on setting up SmartPart 1.3.

Look mum!! No more STSADM command for SharePoint feature installation!! Thanks to a CodePlex project called SharePoint Installer, you can create a setup file which also let you decide which SharePoint site to activate your Sharepoint Feature.
