Hi,

I am building a sandboxed solution in SharePoint and it needs to stream binary data like (docx, pdf etc) to the end user.but it looks like the sandboxed solution has its limitations in the sense that it cannot stream binary data to the end user. How can this be achieved? IS there a way to stream binary data using Sandboxed solution?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi!
I guess there are no restrictions on streaming in sandbox solutions, they do have limitations on file system read and write, but if you work with file in memory, I guess it should not be a problem. So it looks like some other operation causes security access violation. Can you post the code that causes the problems?

Hi,

Thank you for the response. Unfortunately, I can't post the code. However, from the above documentation, I realized  that we cannot deploy  nonsharepoint assemblies in  a sandboxed solution and my code uses a couple of non share point libraries, which help in creating the binary data.   Therefore I am not able to stream or create this data. The two non share point libraries Iam using are ibex.dll for PDF document generation and DocumentFormat.Openxml For creating office documents. Is there any way we can store this data temporarily to stream to the user?

Any help is appreciated?

Thanks,

Indeed, sandbox solutions can call external librarires, but these libraries should have AllowPartiallyTrustedCallersAttribute attribute (http://msdn.microsoft.com/EN-US/library/d18a6dca(v=VS.90)). If assembly does not have this attribute, then you cannot call it. So I guess the only solution is to rebuilt your libraries with AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers attribute.
Besides all external libraries should be places in GAC.
