So I’ve been tasked with developing some stuff at work for SharePoint, and so far I feel like I’m missing something fairly basic.
I bought and worked through the book ‘SharePoint 2007 Development Unleashed’ by Hoffman and Foster which was a good introductory read and certainly got me up and running. But I still feel that there must be an easier way of doing this stuff.
I’m basically creating the web part to display information by overriding the CreateChildControls() method and entry the creation of HTML controls in there, e.g.
Which is working fine, but is there an easier way to do this? i.e. some graphical drag-and-drop option.
Interested to hear from other SharePoint developers on things I’m doing wrong, and in particularly any good starting guides out there!
