Connecting webparts in SharePoint 2013

A while ago, I had a question here on the forum on how to connect webparts in SharePoint 2010. The question is here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_28011101.html

The answer to my question then was to use SharePoint designer 2010 to connect webparts in my example.

Since then, we have moved to SharePoint 2013, and realized that in SharePoint Design 2013 it is no longer possible to connect webparts!

So, what does that mean to us? Is there no longer *any* way to connect our webparts?

Thanks!

Hello Fredrik,

I've only had a few glimpses of SharePoint 2013 and SPD 2013, but from what I've seen I deduct that unless you know how to use the ASPX or other page elements to encode the connections you won't be able to do it.

SharePoint Designer 2013 does not have a design view anymore. The Design View in SPD 2010 was the vehicle to access the ribbon commands to open the "Manage Connections" dialog for a selected web part.

On a hunch, I'd do this: In SPD 2010, create a connection with multiple fields. Then select the web part and study the tag properties (you need to switch them on with the View options in SPD 2010).

In SPD 2013, select the web part in code view and bring on the tag properties in the side bar, then try to re-create the tag properties values along the same lines as in SPD 2010.

As I say, it's just a hunch. I currently don't have a SP 2013 environment to play with and verify my claim.

cheers, teylyn
