I need to add a new page in a new doc library. That works fine. In the page I need to add a webpart to filter list data from a view bases on 3 columns from the view.

The following code is not throwing any exception but its not either filtering the data. There are 3 items in the list

// Uncomment the method below to handle the event raised after a feature has been activated.
        public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
            string pageUrl=AddSponsoringEventsDashboardPage(properties.Feature.Parent as SPWeb);
            AddNavigationLink(properties.Feature.Parent as SPWeb, pageUrl);

        private void AddNavigationLink(SPWeb currentUnsafeWeb, string url)
            bool allowUnsafeUpdatesSetting = false;

                // Cleanup all  quick links
                allowUnsafeUpdatesSetting = currentUnsafeWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates;
                currentUnsafeWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

                SPNavigationNodeCollection quickLaunchNodes = currentUnsafeWeb.Navigation.QuickLaunch;

                foreach (SPNavigationNode node in quickLaunchNodes)
                    if (string.Compare(node.Title, "Lists") == 0)
                        SPNavigationNode dataNode = new SPNavigationNode("$Resources:SPNLSponsoring,Navigation_SponsoringEventsDashboard_Title", url, true);
                currentUnsafeWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = allowUnsafeUpdatesSetting;


        private string AddSponsoringEventsDashboardPage(SPWeb currentWeb)
            Logger.LogDebug("NLSponsoringSiteConfigSponsoringCentralEventReceiver", "AddSponsoringEventsDashboardPage(SPWeb currentWeb)", "BEGIN");

I reckon you could do this with no code using Sharepoint Designer e.g using webpart connections. Cheers

might be best to show the lines which caused the issue and then the lines once they are fixed... – Mauro Jul 13 '12 at 9:42
