comment How to disable event firing outside an event?
What if I need to disable event firing on a list, i.e. when I don't have the context of the list in question. I have some SharePoint web part code that needs to update a property of an item in a list. And I want to disable event firing when updating the property of that item, since the list has a registered event receiver.

since I am working with SharePoint 2007 (MOSS), there is no client object model, if that is what you mean by "client side API", right?

comment Best practice for calling web service from Sharepoint List Item Event Receiver
Your side note is very much in consideration because even I didn't feel comfortable with invoking a web service from the item receiver and introduce additional latency and another point of failure. On the slightly brighter side, the web service is invoked only once in the lifetime of the document added to the library and it does not happen every time the item is updated. Also, the lengthier part of the operations occur in the itemUpdated method which is inherently asynchronous, so the user is not exposed to any delay. Still, there must be a better way...

comment Coding best practice display name vs internal name in itemUpdated event receiver
I tried using internal name and keeping getting a null value for a specific column. When I use the display name, I am able to retrieve a non-null value. What gives? This is with MOSS 2007.

Thanks... it was my dev environment web.config. I followed that article and updated the settings to not display custom/full errors.

comment Deploy/bind event receivers to lists in single feature
I am having trouble with the event receiver and since it is related to this question from a follow-up perspective, I thought I will bring a new Stackexchange question to your attention.

comment Customize document library EditForm.aspx to display Error/Exception
The RedirectUrl property is not in WSS 3 apparently. Without that line, it takes me to an user unfriendly error page displaying the error, but also the stack trace.

comment Deploy/bind event receivers to lists in single feature
that worked out really well. Not only did you answer my question, but you gave me some neat, reusable code, as well as helping me understand WSPBuilder a little better. Thank you!!!

comment Deploy/bind event receivers to lists in single feature
Thank you for the detailed answer and a very good looking ER binding utility method! The noob that I am, I need a little more hand-holding, as apparent from the following questions. (a) What type of feature should I select in WSPBuilder, for step# 2? (b) Should I select the Feature with Receiver item in WSPBuilder for step# 4? (c) Wiring up it all in WSPBuilder is where I lack the experience rather acutely, since I limited myself to using its wizard like interface. I'm wondering, based on how you would do something like this, do you end up with a single feature.xml and elements.xml?
