About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

I'm sure that you can use the control template also and have it install the solution.  I put a feature in this area: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES and created a new web part feature using STSDev.  Then I added code using this blog post: http://devpinoy.org/blogs/willydavidjr/archive/2008/03/18/creating-complex-web-parts-in-sharepoint-2007-using-web-user-control.aspx.  It was pretty nifty if you don't feel like installing the SMARTPart (http://www.codeplex.com/smartpart), then you could do it this way.  This is something I stumbled upon while playing with my Site Data Reports Web User Control.  I'm not sure if I want to take it a step further.  Someone suggested that I try to use some type of feature dependency option, where I have my user control in a feature and I call the SMARTPart somehow.  I think I am going to play around with this idea over the upcoming week.  For some reason I feel really sick today and can no longer stair at a computer.  I will keep you guys updated on what I find.  I'm not sure how far I am going to take this project.  I may just post my STSDEV source files or find some way to package all these files into some sort of deployment file that installs everything in the right places.  I have not created a deployment file in a while so bear with me plus I have a billion things to do as usual.  But as most of you who read this blog know I probably will do it within the next month, because I like a good challenge.
