Hi Sahil,

Thanks for your nice articles on Sandboxed Solutions in SharePoint 2010. I have also been enjoying your SharePoint book. I have got a question and wonder if you can help me.

I am writing a Web Part and using the Client Object Model in JavaScript. I want to deploy it as a Sandboxed Solution. In one of the examples in your book, this is how you have registered sp.js file in a web part:


new ScriptLink()


ID = "SPScriptLink",

Localizable = false,

LoadAfterUI = true,

Name = "sp.js"



I have tried doing the same in my web part and then I found out that you can not use ScriptLink with a Sandboxed Solution. So I don't know how do I register sp.js in my web part which will be deployed as a Sandboxed Solution. I have also tried putting the script block (<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/sp.js">) in a literal control and instantiate that control in CreateChildControls method but that didn't work.
