SharePoint 2010: Displaying Content with Web Parts and JavaScript

Many of the SharePoint Web Parts and controls use XSL as the basis for styling. In this session we'll look at the XML Viewer Web Part and talk about XSL basics to create formatted HTML from an XML document. Then we'll look at the Content Query Web Part - a powerful Web Part that comes with the publishing infrastructure that can query the content in a site collection and display the results in a variety of formats. You can create your own formats with XSL. To complete the discussion of displaying content we'll move away from Web Parts and XSL and looking briefly at JavaScript. I'll show you how you can mingle the SharePoint Client Object Model with JavaScript to create formatted output with custom behaviors.
