Web Context?

Feb 5, 2008 at 9:06 PM
How do you get the web site for the smartpart?

Here's what I'm doing in my Page_Load of the usercontrol:

SPWeb web = SPControl.GetContextWeb(Context);

This causes an error, which can't even be trapped.

Help please.

When you say the message can't be trapped, have you made these mods to web.config?
I found this solution here:

Debugging SharePoint can be problematic at times, it does like to hide debugging information from you. The bain of my life recently has been “An unexpected error has occurred” with nothing written to log files, trace or the event log.

Normally I can debug the problem with a little commenting & narrowing down of the problem, but today I have managed to get rid of that error screen completely.

The solution is to change a single entry in web.config, by modifying the line…

<SafeMode MaxControls=“200“ CallStack=“false“…


<SafeMode MaxControls=“200“ CallStack=“true“…

You will also need to set custom errors to 'Off' .

<customErrors mode=“Off“/>

You will no longer see the “An unexpected error has occurred” error page and instead you get a lovely ’standard ASP.Net error page’ with the stack trace and everything…development has got that little bit easier!!

Turned out to be a permission issue. You couldn't call Sharepoint from code-behind with trust set to "WSSMinimal." When I set the trust to "WSSMedium," it ran fine. Is there any other opinions besides changing the trust level?
