FilterZen: Feedback Forum > Can FilterZEN connect to PictureLibrary web parts (MOSS)?


I have had a good look around this forum but I can't see anything about SharePoint Picture Libraries. I am investigating your tools because SharePoint doesn't, for some reason, allow connections between Picture Library web parts and other web parts. I have tried Form and various standard Filter wb parts but the "connections" option is always greyed out.

Can FilterZEN help me?

See the Filter on a Picture Library thread from January.

Additionally, general check list when connections are not supported:

1. your "Picture Library" is always a Web Part, even on its View pages. Check in its web part settings that connections are allowed.

2. some out-of-box Views do not support connections, such as Calendar views or I think in SP 2007 Thumbnail Pictures views.... switch the Web Part to another view (all items often works) and it should be possible to connect.
