Introduction

Web Part developers can use Microsoft® Visual Studio® .NET to build Web Part assemblies for use in Microsoft SharePoint™ Products and Technologies. These templates are provided to help developers create Web Parts. The templates are similar to the default server control file and project templates included with Visual Studio .NET.

Before using these templates, developers should be familiar with he following:

  • Microsoft Windows® SharePoint Services and its features
  • The Web Part architecture as it applies to Windows SharePoint Services

For more information about developing Web Parts for SharePoint Products and Technologies, see the Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies software development kit (SDK).

System Requirements

To create a Web Part assembly, you must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Access to the Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services assembly
  • Sufficient permissions to install the template package and create Visual Studio projects
  • Meet all the requirements for Visual Studio .NET

Installing the Web Part Template Package

This section explains how to install the Web Part templates for Visual Studio, how to add a reference to the Windows SharePoint Services assembly, and how to prepare Visual Studio to use the templates.

    Note   You must accept the EULA to successfully download the package.
  2. When prompted, do one of the following:
    • Click Open to install the package. The Setup Wizard starts.
      Note   If a security alert appears, choose to trust content only if the source of the file is Microsoft.
    • Click Save to save a copy, and then type the location on the local files system to save the package. After the download is complete, locate the downloaded file and double-click Setup to start the Setup Wizard.
  3. The Setup Wizard starts. Click Next to install the package.
  4. Select the programming languages for which you want to install the templates and then click Next.

  5. In the text box provided, type the location of the Windows SharePoint Services assembly in the file system and click Next.
    Note   If Windows SharePoint Services is installed on your machine, the default location will already be populated in the text box (for example, local_drive\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\ISAPI\).
  6. The Confirm Installation page appears. Click Next to continue.
  7. The Installation Complete page appears. Click Close to close the Setup Wizard.

Creating a Simple Web Part Library Project
