  1. Thanks. But, how to do change the size of the code window that opens.

    In SP 2007, I could drag the edges and even go outside the SharePoint IE window. In SP 2010, I get a fixed box that I can scroll vertically, and that is it.

    Line wrap jumbles the code, so I copy it and edit in Notepad. Then paste it back. That seems silly.

  2. I want to use a workflow to edit the HTML source of a multiple lines of text field when an item is created in a contact list. Is this possible? If so, how?


  3. Thanks for the blog.
    I got what i was searching for.
    Suggestion:- Please try to make the pictures big so that others can see it clearly.
    Any way good work

  4. All I have is a few words of text in one of my contenet editor web parts. I do not want to use HTML. No matter what I do it messes it the spacing in the web part. Any suggestions for better way to edit other than HTML?

  5. this works with SharePoint 2010

    function ExpandCalendar() {
    firCal = SP.UI.ApplicationPages.CalendarInstanceRepository.firstInstance();

    function WaitForCalendarToLoad()
    if (typeof SP.UI.ApplicationPages.CalendarNotify.$4a == ‘undefined’) {
    // post SP1
    var pwold$4b = SP.UI.ApplicationPages.CalendarNotify.$4b;
    SP.UI.ApplicationPages.CalendarNotify.$4b = function () {
    else {
    // pre SP1
    var pwold$4a = SP.UI.ApplicationPages.CalendarNotify.$4a;
    SP.UI.ApplicationPages.CalendarNotify.$4a = function () {
