You can download the solution as well as the source for free from CodePlex here: Here is the entire DocIconJob class:. Lines are just the declaration of and logic needed to persist some properties. The Execute method beginning in line 86 is what is called when the Timer Job actually runs. I override this method to ensure my custom code gets called instead.
Understanding DocIcon.xml Files
My custom code really begins in the UpdateDocIcon method starting at line If this job is installing Running on Solution Cmlthen I just check to see if the node was found.
If so, all done! In order to work, the mapping node needs to be added as a child of the ByExtension element, so we find that in line By default the mapping nodes are listed in alphabetical order by their extension. Failing that, I add it to the end in Line and save the file in line Hopefully this example will help make the concepts I was talking about in my previous post make some sense.
If not, then sadness will fill my soul and flowers will no longer bloom or something. This post will focus on the plumbing necessary to setup your own custom timer job that dpcicon on every server in the farm. XML file will be saved for later. There are a couple of different alternatives here, but basically your properties need to serialize down to strings. But you will probably need to implement at least a matching constructor with some custom properties. In my Timer Job, I wanted to pass three properties which I then store using the method aboveso I use this:.
Depending on the base Job Definition class you chose, the Execute method may have a slightly different signature, but either way this is the method to override to provide your own custom logic. Uncomment the FeatureActivated and FeatureDeactivating methods. This will be the method where we install or uninstall your custom job.
In your FeatureActivated and FeatureDeactivating methods call this new method accordingly:. I am not doing any kind of scheduling since dociocn job just runs once on initial deployment and once when being removed.
However, you may want to adjust your method to include doccicon schedule Just set xm myJob.
DocIcons element (Document Icons)
Schedule parameter before the Update call. Lines are finding any existing job definitions that share the same name and deleting them since creating jobs with duplicate names will cause an error. Line 12 actually creates the job with my default parameters and then line 15 sets a Title. This is where you would introduce a schedule if you wanted the job to run more than once, but if not just call Update to save your job. I want my job to run immediately, so in line 17 I call the RunNow method to do exactly that.
You now have a shell for setting up and installing a custom job — specifically one that runs on every server in the farm. Nearly everyone who has ever used SharePoint has had to setup the PDF icon mapping so that PDF documents will have the familiar Adobe logo rather than the blank, unknown icon SharePoint uses by default.
This is relatively simple and there are guides to do doing this all over the internet. Here is a very brief summay of the steps that must be performed manually on every server:. So, like many before me, I thought, surely this can all be automated! So I looked and I found some solutions for SharePoint and several solutions that only worked for Standalone Servers or for only one server in the farm.
These were of help, but still no good for my needs. So, I wrote my own.
In making this, I came across several blog entries that were especially helpful, here are most of these Thanks! Skip to content Home Posts tagged ‘DocIcon’. Here is the entire DocIconJob class: Job Definitions you can inherit from in the Microsoft.

In your FeatureActivated and FeatureDeactivating methods call this new method accordingly: Quick Note about testing: In many dovicon you will need to either restart the Timer Job Service on each server or change your Assembly Version number to get the timer job to pick up any code changes.
Here is a very brief summay of the steps that must be performed manually on every server: If not found, it adds one in alphabetic order and points it to the icon file An IIS Reset is performed to get the changes activated When Deactivating, the Timer job removes the mapping for PDF documents So why use this thing?
