@spevilgenius, thanks for the suggestion, but that did not work. Using an SPUser object still ends up showing created by System Account in both view form and list view.

comment how to iterate through all folders inside subfolders of root level folders
Well, I haven't tested it, but the idea is that, for every folder, if it has subfolders, it tries to ProcessAllSubfolders. Then, for each of those subfolders, if they have subfolders, it tries to ProcessAllSubfolders, etc., etc. So theoretically, it should recursively go down through all the subfolders until it reaches folders that have no subfolders. Keep in mind, this is still starting only from folders at the root level who's name starts with "a".

comment How to find the current folder through JS COM?
So according to Anders' answer, this ctx object is only available in SP 2013? Because you are using it in your answer also... and I am on SP 2010. Is there any way to do something similar in 2010?

comment How to find the current folder through JS COM?
Thanks for your answer Mike, but I am not looking for the root folder of the library. If the library has a folder in it called "FolderA", and inside FolderA is a subfolder called "Subfolder1", and the user has clicked into the subfolder (essentially at http://server/sites/site/library/folderA/subfolder1), then I want to know that they are currently in Subfolder1. Basically I want to answer the question "what folder am I currently in?" using JSCOM.

Ummm... make the datatable not static, and wrap the code that populates it in an if(!IsPostback) block?

comment Property Bag in SharePoint
Interesting. After a quick test in Powershell, I got an error because System.Collections.Hashtable doesn't contain a method named 'Update'! So you can't actually do farmObject.Properties.Update(). (I also verified that there is no Update method available on SPFarm.Local.Properties in VS.) I did however, manage to get a new value saved using just farmObject.Update(), so I'm not sure where the OP's problem is really coming from. And maybe those code samples you found that don't use the properties update method are actually right.

If calling Update() on the Properties object pushes the changes to the database, is there even a need to call Update() on the Farm object?
