Time ago I said to a punny swordman "I am not stupid enough to use a cannon to hunt a rabbit".

Then WHY on earth I am still here, using SharePoint to replace an app server? Maybe using Yorula to cut that server in half could be a good idea, after all... This application does not belong there.

added client-object-model tag. Should be more fitting for the question

@bodycountPP maybe they are a leftover of some UTF-8 null character? Try to cleanup them and see if they reappear after saving the modified list item.

@bodycountPP - and done. Give me some time and I will try to see if anything comes to mind about cleaning up the note field. One idea could be disabling rich text support for the field.

corrected confusion between server and client object model. My bad.

@bodycountPP - sorry my bad, that was because I used the server side object model classes. Will edit. Again, sorry for the typo.

comment Sharepoint 2010 Upload Document page customization
Some questions: first, what should be the scope of the change? Whole web site or a single document library? Second, can you provide a screen of the label yoy need to change? Maybe it's just my misundertanding, but I don't see that label on the upload form.

So, basically you are getting the "Missing server side dependency" style error but you can use the web part on the same site the error is raised at? Mind posting a screen of the error in the tool?

comment Registered custom web parts
Just as a reference - what is the actual type of the webpart? Third party, SharePoint out-of-box, internal development?

comment How to choose the right datatype when creating external content types?
I am not posting this as an answer since it is more of a guess. Maybe the type should be base on the underlying type of the field? After all SharePoint must too save the values in the db, and the underlying type is just that - the type SP uses when saving the values in its db.

Is this old post linked to the above? It would seem that the base question is the same.

comment How to access Root Site Collection from other site collections?
As I said, it really depends on where the above code will run. An normal user may not have the required permissions to perform the required operations (for example, it may not have access to the root site collection). In that case you may need to wrap the code in a SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges block to elevate the code to be run under the AppPool identity: that should give every permission you may need.

what do you mean by safe, @variable? As I said, the main problem you may have is user permissions preventing your access to the other site, but you should have that no mater how you get your root site collection url. Do you have any specific concern? I had used the above instruction in a web service to recover the url of the root site collection with no problem (other than security).
