I'm making a user control for a master page, and I want to include a People Picker (PeopleEditor) control for selecting a single user that will be associated with the control. Everything is coming out fine for the intial rendering, but I'm having issues finding people through the Check Names functionality that are not happening in any other people picker.
Clicking on "Check Names" underlines a name provided, saying no exact match found, etc, then I click and it says "
<No Matching Names>":
If, however, I click on the "Browse" button and enter the exact same text in the search field there, I get the correct result to select:
Other People Pickers on the site work fine; I haven't done anything special to configure this one:
<SharePoint:PeopleEditor runat="server" SelectionSet="User" ID="EditContactPeoplePicker" MaximumEntities="1" ValidatorEnabled="true"/>
Any suggestions on things I need to specify, set, or check on?
I have since done a bit more searching and discovred that it does work on some pages, but does not work on other pages (being on the masterpage, I can only guess that some pages load something into context that allows the picker to function, and other pages do not... I have yet to find a pattern...) still searching... When I get an hour or so, I might come back with a list of the pages that do and do not work, but there are higher priorities right now...)
