Creating WebPart on SharePoint Services 3.0
Posted on 2012-03-30
I am brand new to SharePoint and SharePoint programming. I did some research but couldnt find anything concrete for what I am trying to work on. So giving it a shot here
I have installed Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. I created a site SPPilot. Within it I created a list item called "MYLIST". The list has the following fields . The data type of the fields are given in brackets.
1. IssueID (integer)
2. Title (string)
3. Due Date (date) (optional)
The list has just 1 row
IssueID Title Due Date
Now I am not even sure if this is the right way of doing it. But what I want to do is create a new column. Lets call it "Reverse Title" (String). This column essentially is the reverse of the title column. So for example, the Reverse Title column will be "321tset" the reverse of the content of title.
Since I am a complete newbie, the only suggestion I got was to create a webpart and I need to use C# scripting and aspx. I was asked to create a webpart that takes this particular type (string) in our case and then output the results as I described above.
Ive been trying to do this on my own, with whatever examples I can find but nothing has helped and its been 2 weeks so far. Any kind of help would be much appreciated.
Also if you know any further reading that might help me, please point me to those resources as well.
