SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

There is very little information available on connecting web parts on a web part page. This seems to be too advanced a topic for most of the end user resources. On the other hand, it's not a developer or IT Pro topic either.

Here are the resources I've checked: - The Bill English's "SharePoint Administrator's Companion" and the "SharePoint 2007 User's Guide" by Seth Bates both have one page on the topic. Rob Bogues' book has nothing I can find. - Office Online, Connect data in Web Parts is not complete.

I want a comprehensive list of all of the out of the box web parts that are connectable and under which exact scenarios.

Are you waiting for the bounty? I don't see the option to add one yet. –  Tom Resing Feb 4 '10 at 15:02
    
@Alex Thanks for the edit. You're right. That is less subjective. And more descriptive. Any ideas on the answer? –  Tom Resing Aug 25 '11 at 14:28
    
Sorry no and no time to find out either! But the way I would find out (being a dev) is use a tool to find all web parts in the SharePoint DLLs that implement the connectable interfaces. –  Alex Angas Aug 25 '11 at 22:54
    
@Alex that's a good idea. –  Tom Resing Aug 30 '11 at 14:25

Hmmm...did a little quick digging, found some interesting resources:

I found several other posts that may be what you're looking for, but they seemed a little more specific. Here's what I used to do the search: SearchforSharePoint.com

Hi John, those are both good articles, but don't you think there should be something better? I've wondered about this question from the very first time connections were demonstrated to me by a SharePoint MVP 4 years ago. Why doesn't someone explain it better? –  Tom Resing Jan 31 '10 at 14:24
