nSPTiles: Windows style tiles for SharePoint by Anchal Nigam

Some time ago Anchal Nigam asked if it was OK to make a spin-off based on my SharePoint 2013 style tiles solution.

This was no problem to say yes to as my tiles solution has fallen a bit behind on the updates due to other projects – mostly DFFS.

I have now finally fond the time to try out his solution, and it is great!

There is a lot more configuration options than in my original version, and best of all: it has a GUI to create or edit the tiles directly in a grid on the page.

Check it out here: http://nsptiles.js.org/

This is not a sponsored review. I have written this as a courtesy to Anchal.  I have nothing to do with this solution, and therefore all related questions must be posted in the page linked above.

License agreement for Site collection scoped licenses has been updated

Based on feedback from “corporate users” I have decided to remove the “100 user limit” for the Site collection scoped license.

This means that the “Site collection license” and the “Corporate user license” can now be used in site collections with more than 100 users without violating the license terms.

Read more about the updated license terms here.

Cascading dropdowns updated to v3.30

I have posted a small update to SPJS-Casc.js to fix these issues:

  • Added support for autofilling values when using “Autofill subsequent dropdowns when they contain only one valid option.” in DFFS.
  • Changed the jQuery variable from $ to spjs.$ to fix a bug with SharePoints internal file “assetpicker.js” as this one kills jQuery.

Get the updated version here

You find the article describing the solution here, and you find the dedicated forum here.

SPJS-Utility.js is updated to v1.200

I have updated SPJS-utility.js to v1.200. I have changed the file so all functions are now part of the “spjs.utility” namespace. I have included support for existing code using the old function names as well. There are not many changes to the functionality, but a few small changes to setFieldValue and getFieldValue related to various bugs reported from DFFS.

Get the updated version here

This file has always contained “internal” functions used in various solutions, but you can use the functions in your custom code. Unfortunately there is not documentation made at this point, but you can post questions in the SPJS-Utility forum.
