Adding a custom form to List's FormCollection in code

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hello, In a site within a site collection, using SharePoint Designer 2010 we have created custom Display, Edit and View forms and assigned them to the Item content type of a custom list as it's default forms. When looking at the Forms property of the list, I can see all six forms listed: the three original forms (DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx, NewForm.aspx) and the three custom forms (displayifs.aspx, editifs.aspx, newifs.aspx). Each site in the site collection has this custom list and I want to add these three custom forms to the custom list in each site in the collection as the default forms for items. In code I have tried copying the files from the Item subfolder of the first custom list to the Item subfolder in each list in each site, and then setting the properties for the Item content type's default forms to point to these new files (e.g DisplayFormUrl = "~list/Item/displayifs.aspx"; EditFormUrl = "~list/Item/editifs.aspx"; NewFormUrl = "~list/Item/newifs.aspx";) and I have also copied the fourth file template.asxn to this folder in each list. However, I have not found how to add these new files to the Forms property of the list iteself, as this property is read-only. It still only contains the three default forms. Is this possible to do in code? When I try to open the Display form or Edit form in

Hello, When I try to insert a custom list form for a custom content type I created, nothing happens. Same thing is for the content type "message" & "discussion".

Add a New Item to a Custom Sharepoint List and Sharepoint Calendar from one Infopath form.

  

I am trying to create an infopath form for requesting time off.  Once the request is approved I want the form to add the event to a calendar on sharepoint.  I was able to do this using the article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-item-sharepoint-calendar-infopath.htm.  But I want the form to also add an item to a custom list that has the employees available time off stored on it.  That way the form can automatically subtract the time entered on the infopath form from what is available on the custom list.  I was able to do this using another article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at  http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-rich-text-item-sharepoint-list-infopath.htm.  I can make both of these functions happen seperately but I need them to happen on the same Infopath form.  I am using Infopath and MOSS 2007.  I have tried to use 2 CAML receive data files and I treid to co

Adding Multiple hyperlinks to form connected to SharePoint 2010 list

  

I have a SharePoint 2010 list and am using an InfoPath 2010 form to create items. I am trying to allow users to reference other list items by inserting a hyperlink to other items in the same list. I have created a column in the list containing each items URL. I then created a drop down list in the InfoPath form that queries this column, so that it contains all the items URL’s. I also created a button and a hyperlink field in the InfoPath form. I would like the user to be able to choose an item from the drop down list, click the button and have the hyperlink inserted into the form. Then be able to choose another item from the drop down list, click the button and have another hyperlink inserted. I added a rule on the button that when clicked, sets the value of the hyperlink field to the value of the drop down item picked. This works, however, only allows for one hyperlink to be inserted.

I have also tried to use the multiple selection list box, by querying the URL column as the choices. This allows for multiple selections, however it shows up as text a

Sharepoint Custom List Form

  
In modifying my New and Edit forms for a Sharepoint list, I open in Sharepoint designer and delete the default List Form web part and then insert Custom List form. On every occasion I seem to be limited to 12 fields to this form. Is there any way to get aditional fileds from the list into this control?

Creating a Custom List Definition that uses InfoPath Form

  

Hi,

I have created a custom list definition in Visual Studio 2010.  By default it is using the out of the box "pages\form.aspx" for the New/Edit/Display form rendering. 

I am just wondering if it is possible to use an InfoPath form as default for the New/Edit/Display form?

I have tried to create a custom list with custom info path form thru the UI, and export the site as WSP.  I have analysed the files and notice a few things:

1.) I need to add a XmlDocument section in the Schema.xml for displayifs/editifs/newifs.aspx

2.) I need to provision the xsn in "Lists/{List Name}/Item"

3.) I need to provision the *ifs.aspx in "Lists/{List Name}/Item"

As you see, some of the settings required the {List Name}.  That's mean I can't really create a list definition that is reusable because I need to know the List Name before hand. Is there any way to specify the path with some kind of variable instead of static list name?

Furthermore, I notice that the "Developer" tab is missing from the Ribbon when I modify form, hence I can do any code behind.  Is this a limitation, or is there a workaround?

Thanks,

InternalStartup method erro when publish InfoPath form with custom code

  

Hi All,

I created a SharePoint Form Library, and added a button in the form. Then, by following the steps of adding custom code. I was trying to add codes to the button click event in VSTA. When I try to publish this form to my SharePoint library, I got an error message say:

"The form template has been published to the server but it can only be opened in InfoPath Filler.

There is an error in the InternalStartup method of form code.

There may be additional error detials in the Design Checker task pane."

However, I did not make any changes to the InternalStartup. and then I tried to create another SharePoint Form Library Form in InfoPath Designer, and just add click event, but did not input any code, I got the same error. So I believe this is caused by either environment or the configuration of SharePoint Server. Could anyone help me out? Thanks!


Can a single form create multiple entrys in a custom Sharepoint list

  

Hi,

I want to have a form where the user can specify how many items she wants to create for a custom sharepoint list? When submitting the form, that will start creation of X number of new items in a custom Sharepoint list.

Is this doable with forms?
