The first step in internationalizing an application is to respect the current regional settings when outputting numeric, date/time, or currency values. Below is an example of an application that displays numeric and date/time values, using the ToString method for instances of double and DateTime. In the Click event handler, we set the labels’ content. With regional settings set to English (United States), […]
SharePoint 2013 Designer workflows now has two new interesting options: the ability to call HTTP web services and the option to loop over some code a number of times. This, together with the new REST API, which supports querying lists and returning data in JSON, allows iterating through list items in a workflow, something that was not possible before.
In order to demonstrate this, let’s create a new Site Workflow
in SharePoint Designer, that will iterate through the Tasks
Call it Process Tasks
, for example, and make sure you select SharePoint 2013
as the platform type.
align="justify">In the workflow designer, let’s start by creating a new stage, call it Retrieve Tasks
In it, we add a new Set Workflow Variable
action which creates a new String
variable called url
with the value “http://sp2013/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Tasks')/items”
. This uses the new REST API, and you can pass in additional options, such as for ordering by the DueDate
field in descending order:
http://sp2013/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Tasks')/items?$filter=DueDate gt DateTime’2014-07-31T00:00:00’
Next, we add a Dictionary
variable (Build a Dictionary
action), call it requestHeaders
, and initialize it as this:
entries are of the String

SharePoint Designer 2013 workflows brought along new and quite welcome features. I will list my favorite ones.First, the ability to define stages (blocks of instructions) and to jump (yes, goto-style!) between them. This permits a better organization of our code and because of conditional jumps, even includes the ability to reuse code and to loop between stages.
Next one is stage-level loops. We have two flavors: one where the loop count is predefined from an Integer variable and the other where a condition is used to determine its end.
Then we have a new
type of variables, Dictionary, and three associated actions: build a dictionary with values, get an item from a dictionary and count the number of items in it. Each Dictionary item can be of a different type, and it is even possible to have items of type Dictionary. A Dictionary can be indexed by its key or by position, which is very useful to use inside loops.
It is now possible to start list and site workflows, but only SharePoint 2010 are supported. Workflows can be started synchronously, in which case, the originating workflow will wait for the result,...(Read whole news on source site)
