Web Parts

P: n/a
CW
I'm creating some web parts using VS.NET & InfoPath. Question, I'm currently
using Windows XP as my Office, Frontpage Infopath development platform but in
order to create Web Parts for Sharepoint Services I understand you have to
have SharePoint Services installed on 2003 Server. Can Sharepoint Services
not be installed on XP only for creating the Web Parts and then upload the
part to the Sharepoint Portal/Services production server?

a) you will want to engage the sharepoint forum in the future. I'm no
expert on sharepoint...
microsoft.public.sharepoint.portalserver.developme nt

b) If you want to create a web part in Visual Studio, you do need the dlls
from Sharepoint on the machine so that your web part will compile. You do
NOT need to actually run sharepoint on your machine in order to compile.
Therefore, it is common for developers in your situation to copy the
sharepoint dlls to the local hard drive and simply reference them in the
project.

c) of course, if you don't have sharepoint running locally, running in a
debugger becomes impossible. That's the trade-off.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Nick. I alrready started that way, I wasn't sure if that would be
good enough. Your other point makes sense as well.

Cheers!!
