i have created simple webpart in visual studio 2010 with the WSPBuilder Template (restricted to use this template. can not use the sharepoint tooling). I have added the Visual Webpart type. i found a .ascx file inside the Template->Control Template->MyWebpartName folder on the design view i added 2 text boxes and a button. logic is in code behind like, on button click event want to copy text from textbox 1 to textbox 2. that it.
By right click the project node in the solution explorer i added the verified sharepoint site path in Package/PublishWeb to deploy the webpart. Now said build, and deployed. I got Done! message means successfully deployed.
I can see MyWebpartFolder in 14 hive as well (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES).but while i said Insert->Webpart there is no Custom folder available. So thought it might be the issue about activation of feature , so checked the features on site. But i could not found that in feature list. What else i have to do ? Webpart scope is WebApplication level. i checked at webapplication level through central admin. i can see it is activated. but unable to add on any page. what else i need to do to get that webpart on page?
