Have you tried whether activating/deactivating your webpart feature updates the files?

comment People Search result scoping
Yeah - like I said I would normally prefer that too but unfortunately AD is unlikely to get tidied up enough to be able to rely on that.

comment People Search result scoping
This is normally what I would do, but AD is a mess and needs tidied up, so for now the prefix text seems to be working.

comment People Search result scoping
it seems to be working - has it been changed in later service packs for 2010? I guess i could try just changing it to WorkEmail:"org1.com" to see if I get the same results.

comment SharePoint 2010 Sandboxed solutions performance
Correct, I have experienced a slow down too. This is down to how sandboxing works - creating a copy of the page object, running the sandbox with that, then merging back to the parent page object.

have you tried using a web application relative url instead of the page url? it may be that the pagemethod needs to be accessed slightly differently?

When do you intend on doing this? do you mean to attach a listener to the site waiting for a new site column to be created?

comment SP2013 Custom Workflow Deployment issues
I've not only recycled the service, I've recycled the entire server to no avail. Something seems to be holding on to the wrong workflow DLL.

comment PreSaveAction on a ListInstance with a custom ContentType
Thanks, it works but I also figured out how to use validation in the list schema anyway.

comment PreSaveAction on a ListInstance with a custom ContentType
I think there was a JS issue, thanks it does work even though VS doesnt like it.

comment PreSaveAction on a ListInstance with a custom ContentType
Doesn't look like its working with my version of SP2013/VS2012. JSLink works fine in the CustomField but not in the form tag in schema.xml.

comment PreSaveAction on a ListInstance with a custom ContentType
I'd gone down the route of using JSLink on the field itself to validate it, I didnt know it could be used on the form itself.

comment Why does SPList.GetItems(string fields[]) return more fields than specified?
is there a typo on that code? shouldnt it be an array of strings you're passing in instead of just comma separated values? SPListItemCollection items = list.GetItems(new string[]{"UniqueId", "Name"});

comment ListDefinition and ListInstance failures with custom content type
I think it was to do with spaces in names - essentially I removed my ListDefinition and ListInstance, renamed my SiteColumns and ContentType Fields with no spaces and recreated my ListDefinition and ListInstance, it all deploys nicely now.

comment Custom Workflow Feature not available in Site Features or Site Collection Features
doesnt clicking Deploy Solution from Central Administration install the feature? anyway Get-SPFeature shows the feature as being in the Web Application already. Using Enable-SPFeature made my workflows available but I need to figure out why the feature isnt in Site Collection Features

comment Controlling which feature a project element is added to
I know I can move them, but I'd have preferred to be able to specify them at creation time.

comment Controlling which feature a project element is added to
Thanks, the Mavention product doesn't work in VS 2012 but its a useful insight anyway.
