Feature Receiver in SharePoint 2010.

- No comments
We can also able to add a Feture Receiver to a Feture defination to extend the functionality of  the feature definition in SharePoint 2010.

A Feature Receiver allows you to write event handlers in a managed programming language such as C# or VB.These event handlers are executed during feature-specific events such as feature activation and feature deactivation.

For example, you can write an event handler that fires during feature activation and performs routine initialization tasks such as creating new lists and adding list items, adding pages, navigation links and Web Part instances.

To create a Feature Receiver, you start by adding a new class to your project that inherits from  the SPFeatureReceiver class defined in the Microsoft.SharePoint namespace. Next, you override methods defined in SPFeatureReceiver, such as FeatureActivated and FeatureDeactivating.

Feature Definition in SharePoint 2010.

- No comments
A feature definition provides a mechanism for adding elements to a target site or site collection through a process known as feature activation. The types of elements that can be added to a site include menu commands,link commands, page templates, page instances, list definitions, list instances, event handlers, and workflows.

Physically, a feature definition is implemented with a set of files that are deployed within a dedicated directory created inside the FEATURES directory. More specifically, a feature’s directory contains one or more XML-based files that contain Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML). The only file required for every feature definition is the feature manifest file, which must be named feature.xml and must be placed at the root of the feature’s directory.

A feature definition often contains one or more XML files known as element manifests that define the elements that make up the feature definition.

The directory for a feature definition can also contain several other types of files for elements such as list definitions and page templates as well as other kinds of resources, such as image files, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) files, and JavaScript files.
