|Can not find "<SAFECONTROLS>" in web.config file. Any idea? Thanks.|
You should be able to see the "SafeControls" section quite at the top of the file. See below the top of a typical Sharepoint web.config file:
|I can upload the WebPart, but can not find the following "MSN Stock Chart" of the graphics settings where? Please advice Thank you.|
Michael, to embed the web part on a page, do the following:
- navigate to the page on which you want to place the web part
- press “Site Actions/Edit Page” to switch to page edit mode
- press “Add a Web Part” on one of the web part zone headers to open the web part gallery dialog box
- Choose the “MSN Stock Chart” entry in the “Miscellaneous” section of the Web Part Catalog popup window.
The web part should now be placed on the page
- Click “edit/Modify Shared Web Part” in the web part header menu to open the web part configuration pane.
Thank you very much for the advice. But when all do a good job, I chose to add the Web Part, the system prompts an error message: "Unable to add Web parts selected. MSN Stock Chart: Cannot import this Web Part". I do not know why, but my system is Moss Chinese, I do not know and have nothing to do with this?|
Can you check if the trust level in your web.config file is set to “WSS_Minimal” ?
If so, can you try to set it to “medium” as follows:
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" />
When i upload this web part it is appearing in webpart gallery, but when i put this on a page it prompts an error "Can not import web part".
I have also done changes in web.config's trust level from "WSS_Minimal" to" WSS_Medium" but still facing the same error.
Any solution please...|
is your Sharepoint site using SSL? If yes, please re-download the ZIP file and replace the DLL, since we have added SSL support for this web part in the meantime.
|Hi Juerg, |
this error is only in this web part case. Media player web part is running sucessfully on my site & i don't know either my Sharepoint is using SSL or not. I followed the steps described by you in each web part case but this error comes in Stock web part. I have put the dll file in assembly, entries in the safe controls and uploaded .webpart file in the web part gallery but when i go to add this web part in the web part zone it throws an error "This web part can not imported". Please give an idea to solve this problem.
could it be that your proxy settings do not allow you to access external web sites (in this case the web part needs to access http://moneycentral.msn.com/ ).
Regarding SSL, you'll have to check if the URL of your Sharepoint site starts with https:// (compared to the common http://)
i cant Drop the StockChart.dll into c:\windows\assembly|
|I am getting the same error when I click ADD to add the webpart onto the page.
"Unable to add selected web part(s)
AE MSN Stock Charts: Cannot import the AE Stock CHart Web Part"|
|Philip, can you check if you properly put the DLL either into c:\windows\assemby or c:/Inetpub/wwwroot/wss/VirtualDirectories/80/bin ? |
please use Windows Explorer (not a command prompt) either directly at the server or via RDP (not via a network share) to be able to drop the DLL into the "c:\windows\assembly" folder.
|Do we have to do this process (copy and paste DLL files ) on every server in the farm or just appication server. looking at the stock web part.
Nice work any way !|
you currently have to do this for each server but we will soon add a WSP deployment option.
we have now added the WSP solution file.|
|I decided to add the Web Part, the system prompts an error message: Unable to add selected web part. |
were you able to successfully deploy the solution via Central Administration and then add the feature in your Sharepoint top site ?
|Hello - Can I embed this web part in a .master page or ASCX page?|
|I am looking to leverage your stock chart on my Cisco Digital Signage. Does your product work on/with the Cisco DMS/DMM solution? Thank you|
yes, that's possible. When placing it in the master page, please make sure to put it after the web part manager.
|Hi we have 2-WFE, 2- App. Among one of the app is hosted central administration. Can you please tell me,whether installing in App-1 is enough or do i need to install in both WFE's or App's|
just install it on one of your WFE's. The "Deplpy solution" opreation will then automaticxally install the web part on both WFE's.
|We have purchased the license key for this web part and this web part is being used in SharePoint online i.e. on HTTPS and the stock ticker uses HTTP. The browser displays a warning of mixed content. How do configure this to use HTTPS stock ticker?|
we have now fixed the HTTPS problem when using the web part on Sharepoint Online.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
|It worked perfect first time. Thanks for the great instructions!|
|The link to Money Central when you click on the chart goes to a page that cannot be found. I do not see that it is editable in the web part. I am using Office 365. Will that be updated soon?|
MSN Money has recently changed the URL to the stock detail page.
Please re-download the current version from our web site, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
|The chart is showing the last available date is 6/28. Today is 7/10. Is this part of the evaluation? I would like the chart to refresh daily, if not more often.|
we also noticed this problem and are currently trying to get some information about the cause of the problem. We hope that it is transient. If not, we will proceed to provide a fix during the course of next week.
|We're getting the same issue, our stock is not showing anything past 6/28/2013. Do we know when to expect a fix for this? Also clicking on the stock image is giving an error on the MSN site. It used to take us to the full stock page for our symbol. This is the error URL:|
|Scott and Bill,|
since MSN Finance has stopped to provide free stock charts, we switched to the Yahoo Finance web service and have updated the web part accordingly.
Please note that the new version currently does not yet support https.
You can download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
|did you update the sandbox version? i am still getting the same data as before with MSN.|
yes, we did also update the sandbox/Office365 version. Can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
It should read 1.2.0
Is there a plan to re-implement HTTPS support? This is an important component of the earlier version.
we have now added HTTPS support to the Stock Chart web part.
Please download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Please then also check the web part’s “Use SSL” setting to enable https support.
|Does the same "SafeControls" text above work? Since trying this new file, I'm getting security errors.|
does your browser give a „mixed content“ warning ?
If yes, can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
If it’s lower that 2.0.0, please re-download the current version from our web site, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution (we added SSL support with version 2.0.0).
Is there a way to make the chart smaller or add a custom size option? The small size is larger than we need for our page.
would a chart size of 190 by 95 pixels be OK ?
That size should be fine as long as all information is included in that dimension. We are currently using 210 x 100 in our 2007 environment.
we have now added the new „tiny“ chart size option (190x95 pixels).
Please download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
|Hi, I can't seem to pull the stock i'm looking for specifically AUX:TWE (I've tried TWE, AUX:TWE, AU:TWE, nothing seems to work. MSFT works fine. any ideas?|
are you referring to „Treasury Wine Estates“ ?
If yes, please us the following symbol: TWE.AX
|Kurt Verschaeve |
|I would like a stock chart for our company Galapagos with symbol GLPG.|
MSN link: http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/stockdetails/fi-202.1.GLPG.AMS?symbol=GLPG.
I tried various symbols in the configuration (GLPG, NL:GLPG, GLPG.AMS, ...) but none do actually work. Can you please tell me what to fill in in the Stock Symbol field?
we found several symbols on Yahoo Finance.
GLPYY (OTC Markets)
GPSIX (Galapagos Partners NASDAQ)
|Hi, I can`t find the Stock Symbol for LME Nickel, any ideas ?.|
unfortunately neither the Yahoo Finance service nor the Google Finance service offer any data for the London Metal Exchange.
|Juerg, today this webpart has started failing on Office 365. The error is: "Web Part Error: Solution failed validation. Correlation ID: 4c3ebd9d-d0b3-3000-a981-03876f84ce8a"|
I'm almost positive it was working yesterday!
Microsoft actually withdrew support for „sandbox“ web parts yesterday (December 1) which also affects the Stock Chart web part.
We are thus currently preparing a new version which will become available at the end of next week.
we have now published the new Office365 version of the web part (please see the download section at the top of this page).
Have just re-downloaded the zip file to update our MSN Stock Chart Webpart. The version info says it is 2.0.3, but it appears to still be version 2.0.2... at least that is what is being installed when I run the install2013.bat. Can you check please.
we did not correctly update the download package for SP 2013, which has now been fixed.
Please re-download the zip file, extract the WSP solution file and then update the web part solution.
|Juerg - the Office 365 web part seems have stopped working again. I downloaded the latest version, but it seems to do the same thing. I briefly see the "Working on it", then nothing, just a blank widget. |
the Yahoo Charts are currently down.
I switched the App to grab the Google Charts.
Parameters will not word instead of the Symbol, CSS and License Key.
We hope yahoo Charts will becom available soon again
|Mojo Jojo |
|Are the charts down today?|
the web service seems to be up and running.
Can you indicate your web part's "Stock Symbols" setting ?
