Latest Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Forum Threads That Have Answers

Can I split Security Administration Permissions? I want to allow people to assign permissions to roles but not have access to delete users or change other users passwords. So can I write permissions for the roles and users screens separately? Ideally in the long run I would like there to be a way for Only one person ie me(or one Admin) to be able to delete users and a way for uses to register themselves without nessisarily having access to the permission to assign themselves Roles. Is any of this possible? Is there a way to maybe write my own security screens to overide Lightswitches build?

We're writing a 'case management' system that revolves around an event in the workplace-- slip and fall, burned your lip on hot coffee in the kitchen, etc. Related to a 'case' are people-- witnesses, investigators, etc.  As you might imagine in the database structure the 'case' is the head of the octopus, with witness and investigator tables linked to it in a 1-to-many fashion. Right now we're trying to craft a screen whereby we pass in a a 'Person' as a screen parameter-- and I don't mean the built-in 'Person' type from LS, but an entity of our own making.  We would like to see on the screen all cases involving that person, whether they're an investigator or witness or other.  (The witness and investigator and other entities have related links to the Person entity, so for Investigator #342 you know who that is.) On this screen we're working on, as one of the datasources, we have the Case table, and have selected the 'Edit Query' link to filter the listing of cases

I have a list detail screen with the "Show Add-new Row" checked for the list. When a new row is added I'd like to fill out some of the detail with default values. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the "Write Code" menu when I select the  list query. The closest would be "FeeManagementQuery_Changed" but that doesn't seem right.  Scott Mitchell

Okay, I have tried to do this numerous times, i.e. select custom control and then click edit render code. Create the render method not renaming it.  I get the below error so, I change it back to a textbox and everything works fine and I go through the above again and get the same error.  What am I doing wrong?  CustomControl error: Name_render() method not found Thanks, -ja

Hi all, I have a LightSwitch desk top application that I wrote back in 2011 right after LightSwitch was available using VS2010 and the necessary extensions.  I am now in the process of trying to upgrade that application using Visual Studio 2013 Version 12.0.30501.00 Update 2.  The first thing that I do to make my life easier so that I am not re-inventing the wheel is connect to a copy of the original database.  This makes things a bit easier in that I now don't have to re-create my data entities.  However it appears that even though this is a copy I cannot edit the design. Are there any flags or properties that I can flip to make the entities editable? I need to change the database design. Thanks, -ja
