I got the task to create a custom web part for sharepoint server 2010 where a user enters details about a site. Fields are: title, description, dropdown with a list of site templates, listboxes with user groups and listboxes with site permissions (full access/contribute/read only). An administrator is supposed to be able to select one/many groups in one listbox and populate the permission listbox with these groups.
The webpart will then create a site with the specified template and the specified permissions. Is all this possible to achieve with a custom web part? I have worked with the provided SharePoint web services before (mostly Lists.asmx though) so I know how to use some of them. I know there is an Admin service but does it provide me with enough permission/parameters to set all these things?
This is my first custom web part and I have started to create a SharePoint 2010 Visual Web part in VS2010 and before I dig too much deeper I'd like to hear some opinions.
Thanks in advance.
