Request - Connection to other webpart


It would be nice to be able to connect webpart to other webparts like listview or something like that. Have you any idea how to do that?

Microsoft doesn't allow SharePoint Sandbox web parts to connect to other web parts. Not fixable.

SPrello is a 'sandbox webpart' (so its easy to install and works with Office 365) and that doesn't allow web part connections so you're not going to be able to do this in the normal way.

Can you describe what you're looking to do with this - there may be a different way.

I'm having agenda which is sharepoint list and title of angenda need to be dragble so that i can reorder titles. For that i use your sprello webpart wich is work great. But i having another sharepoint list wich need to be connectable with sprello title. So scenario is simthing like this. When i reorder agenda druring the session an people click on title in sprello another sharepoint list return some data related to sprello title.

I also was hoping to connect the SPrello webpart to a Content Query Filter webpart, where I can grab the filter out of the URL and have the filtered result displayed in my SPrello Wbe part. I tried creating a list view that was filtered with a query string parameter, then specifying that view in my SPrello webpart, but that didn't work. Any way else to do this? Thanks!

You can't create a View that is filtered with a query string filter web part (QSFWP)- what you've done is created a View then LATER filtered the list with the QSFWP.

SharePoint does not all you to connect Sandbox web parts to other web parts - so you can't do the filtering in the usual way. This is a limitation of SharePoint and not something anyone else but Microsoft can change.

The only way you're going to be able to do something like this is to modify the SPrello code to examine the query string on rendering and apply any filters you need yourself.

You would do this in SPrelloAssets/WebPart.js in the setup_getView_OnSuccess function where it sets up query.set_viewXml

Sorry I cna't help you do this - but if you've got someone familiar with javascript and the client side object model it shouldn't be too difficult.
