Unable to Show Edit item Links in Data Form Web Part

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have a DFWP connected to custom list and the boxes to Show Edit Item Links, Show Delete item links and Show Insert Item links are grayed out so that they can not be checked. This works fine when I use a DFWP connected to a standard list (i.e., Contacts). Is there something special that needs to be done to activate this functionality?ThanksDean

Data form web part not displaying - Unable to display this Web Part. ....

  

Hi,

I am designing a data form - adding some formatting etc.  I am able to see the webpart correctly in SPD split view, but when I trying to preview it, it gives me the following error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
ANy help would be welcome, I have spent a lot of time on this page and don't want to do it again.  THere are a lot of fields and it's a tedious process to move them to the correct location.  I am at my wits end, I am not sure how to debug this!!
Thanks,

data view web part unable to show data from list in subsite

  

Hello all,

In 2007, I never had any issues with doing this. In 2010, I created a web part that looks at the Pages list and pulls a few columns and as long as I am within the site, it works fine. But I need to call information from the Pages list in a subsite and display that information on the parent site default page.

In 2007, I made this work by changing ListID to ListName and DefaultValue="Pages" and then change the WebURL to DefaultValue="/SubsiteName/" then place it anywhere and it found it. Now if I change the ListID to ListName and default value to Pages I get an error that the web part cannot be imported. if I try using the actual ListID and change the WebURL to the subsite, I get an error that the web part is looking for a list that does not exist. This worked so easily in 2007.

Any one able to tell me what's going on? Or have a solution?

Data Form Web Part - Sharepoint Dropdown List as a field in Edit View - Possible?

  

Hi guys,

I'm building a Sharepoint page with a data form web part that uses custom SELECT and UPDATE statements with an SQL Server connection in order to retrieve and store records of information.

I'm getting along fine, records seem to update how they should etc, but I've ran into a problem with one thing: Sharepoint dropdownlists in 'Edit Template'

So the issue is this: if I replace a textbox field with a dropdown list that is populated with a separate SQL datasource, the dropdown list seems to be unable to show the current value of the field.

E.g. I have a dataview which has a field "FruitID", which I can update just fine by setting the ID value to different numbers. The SQL datasource uses the FruitID to display a list of all available Fruits, (e.g. 1 = Banana, 2 = Apple, 3 = Cherry, etc).

If i open the dataview in editmode, the default value in the dropdown is null, despite the real value of the field being "2", which should show "Apple" in the dropdown.

I can select a fruit and click save, and it will update just fine. But the initial display needs to show the correct value to start with.

Is there a custom binding I should be coding to make this work? I can't configure dropdown <items> on an individual level as they are populated from the SQL server. I can't set "SelectedI

AJAX, Data Form Web Part, and Paging

  
I've placed a Data Form Web Part into an Update Panel, and it works great.  This particular use of the web part requires Single Item mode with paging.  My problem is that the "Previous" button for paging calls a javascript function for "history.back()".  Well, the only history to go back to since I am using AJAX around the web part is whatever page (if any) that the user was on before navigating to the page with the AJAX functionality.  It does not go to the previous list item.I've copied the function from the "Next" button, and created my own xslt variables to pass into it for the previous item:<xsl:value-of select="ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent(concat('dvt_firstrow={',$PreviousRow,'};dvt_startposition={',$PreviousPageData,'}'))" />This works fine UNLESS items are deleted from the List that is providing that data to the Web Part. Then my idea doesn't work because it is trying to look for ID numbers that do not exist in the list anymore.  Does anyone know of a way, or a built in variable from the ddwrt namespace, that will pass the previous list item to the "Previous" button no matter if there are deleted items (missing ID numbers) in the providing list? I would greatly appreciate some help.Thanks. Jason A. Graham http://jasonAgraham.spaces.live.com

Show all in BDC data item picker by default

  
I have one ADF where it actually, by default when opening, show all 5 items without having to enter any filter criteria, which is great!  I'm trying to reproduce it for another project and cannot for the life of me do it again and it's driving me crazy.  I'm sure I'm missing something, but not sure what it might be and have spent hours comparing the two files for any elements, attributes that I might be missing without success.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Data form web part issue with pagination

  
I have a data form web part which I put inside a user control. I have an issue with the default pagination. Clicking the previous button on the pagination causes a "Webpage is expired" error. I've tried copying the code from the next button but it doesn't work and I've also tried caching my pages still nothing. I read somewhere here that someone was able to implement the previous button pagination from code behind but he still hasn't replied to my question. Does anyone else know how to implement this from code behind? Really need help with this.

Append changes to list data not showing in customised edit form

  
Sharepoint version 3.0 running on Sql Server 2005

My Notes field in a list has the append changes to list ticked so that we can see who added notes and when. This works fine until I attempt to customise the edit form, at this point the previous notes (which had appeared underneath the field) vanish.  How do I get them back? I know they are still there as I can see them when I use the DispForm.aspx view, they dont appear when ever I cuistomise the EditForm.aspx

Assuming I must be missing something obvious as everything else is easy to configure.. Any help or guidance appreciated.

Changes not reflecting in Data Form Web Part

  

Hi All,

The problem I am facing is as follows:

I have a DataFormWebPart used to DISPLAY data from a list (call it List A) which was created in MOSS 2007. This web part was later migrated to SharePoint Server 2010.

The Web Part works fine. The problem arises when trying to modify the web part. I followed the following steps:

1. I exported the .webpart file of the webpart from the Web Part gallery.
2. I made changes to the XSL template of the web part.
3. Uploaded the template back to the web part gallery.
4. Added the webpart to the page.

However whatever changes I made are not reflected. I tried openning the page in sharepoint designer and I can see my changes in the HTML code of the page. Then I tried a View Source of the page and the changes are not there.

Seems very confusing. Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,

Huzefa Mala.

How can I show version history on a custom edit form?

  

Hi,

I have a simple list that contains aa title and a number field.  On the edit form, I want to show all prior updates to the number field, like so:

Title:  ABC
01/01/2010     10  Updated by: user1
02/01/2010     20  Updated by: user2
Count:            <Textbox for input>

I can create a custom edit form in Designer, but by default I get a DataFormWebPart with an XSLT.  I don't know how to configure the data source to pull all versions so that they could be shown in the XSLT.  If I can't use the DFWP and have to do everything custom, please provide details and/or links.

This is for WSS 3.0.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

SharePoint Edit Form Shows Field Tabs over Field Item - How Can I Hide These

  

I am working with a custom edit form in SharePoint designer and I notice that when the form is displayed it shows the form field title in the column on the left and also in a tab directly above each field in the column on the right.  My question is how do I remove those tabs? IOW I just want to show the form field title on the left and the form field on the right; I don't want those grey tabs above the form field.


Tom Molskow SharePoint Architect - If I solved the issue please propose my reply as the answer - Thanks!
