Custom Insert / Edit Pages

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 
I'm working with a legacy database that is not normalized, nor can i change it to normalize it and/or add relationships. I've successfully got my List and Details pages up and running and am now moving on to insert/edit. Here's my challenge: The insert page needs to accept data that will be written to multiple tables (i.e. consider a customer call where we're creating the customer, the customer address record, etc. on the fly). In addition, the customer can either be a "customer" or a "prospect", each being a separate table. Any suggestions as the best approach to tackling this issue. My gut feel is that I should write a standard aspx page and hook up the data manually. Not sure how to navigate to this page from the insert / edit button (modified routing). Thanks.

Insert and Edit Pages with Web User Control Template for another table

  
Hi, I have an Address template(web user control) which holds the fields of the Address table.  The Address template is embedded in the School Insert Page.  I want to insert a new school together with its address(which means I have to insert a record into the address table).  Can you let me know how I can pass the newly generated addressId to update school table?  Also, how can I associate the Address.cs in the App_Code with the Address template?  I want it to be able to scaffold columns which needs to be hidden from user in the address table.  When I click on Insert School, the Address template shows in "insert" mode, I just need to link the two together. Thanks for your help! CC  

Cannot edit pages based on custom page layout

  

Hi guys!

I have created a site definition that applies a the publishing features and a feature containing some publishing page layouts before it creates some publishing pages based on these layouts.

My problem is that once I create a site based on this definition the resulting publishing pages are not editable. Also in the site definition one of the pages have a webpart added to one of the layouts containers that it should be based on, but when I try to open the page in the browser I get the error: "One or more Web Parts on this page references a zone that doesn't exist".

It appears that either my layouts or publishing page declarations are incorrect, but I cannot for the life of me figure out where. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been googling this problem for well over a week now :S

 

The module part of my site definition:

<Module Name="Homepage" Url="$Resources:cmscore,L

Combining view-only data and Dynamic Data on insert/edit pages

  

Hello all, here's a problem I've been trying to figure out an elegant solution for, but so far I'm coming up blank. I have a situation where I'd like to display view-only data and Dynamic Data together on the same page (without creating custom insert.aspx and edit.aspx pages). I've been playing around with using a SQL view, so that it returns me both my view-only fields and my updateable fields as well. I'm having issues with the insert side of things, the edit page works quite well, and I know I'm going to have to create custom delete logic. The major drawback to using a SQL view though is that to get it to behave you have to 'hack' the .edmx file, and I'm not sure I want to do that. So I guess what I'm asking is that has anyone had any success with this, or should I just bite the bullet and create custom pages for the situation of having view-only data and Dynamic Data on the same page? For the record I'm using the Release Candidate version of VS, and my website is an "ASP.NET Dynamic Entities Web Site". Thanks!


Creating a custom page for a different action - not insert/details/edit/list?

  

If want to make a new page with a different action (not insert/edit/details/list) is the website root the right place to put it?  That seems to be the only place where I don't get a "404 - Not Found" error.  I just wondered if there's a best practice for this ... maybe creating a new action in addition to List/Edit/Insert/etc so that my page can go in the same folder with the other pages for the same table.  For example could I add a "Print" action and then put my page in DynamicData/CustomPages/SurveyResponses/Print.aspx?

Thanks in advance!


Detecting Edit or Insert Page

  

I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help! 


Custom tree view for navigating wiki pages

  
I'm creating an information resource on our intranet (WSS 3.0) using the wiki style format.  The only trick is, unlike a standard wiki, where all pages are directly under the parent, I want to be able to create a customizable tree view where some pages are nested underneath each other.  For example, this particular site talks about all of our different IT systems.  I'll have a wiki page for each system, then underneath each of those pages, there will be more pages for things like training, documentation, etc.  Even though all those pages are at the same level, I need to be able to nest them in a navigational tree view on the quick launch bar.  I suppose if there were also a way to nest the wiki pages themselves, I could just use the pre-packaged tree view.  Anyone have any ideas?

SharePoint Designer: insert custom list not working anymore

  

Hello,

Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.

It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).

Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they say.

I also tried the solutions listed here: http://blogs.msdn.com/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx
But they don't fix the problem.

So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page

  

I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?

can template save custom pages?

  

I created a template off a site I made last year (without content). That site had some custom pages with webparts on them.  These pages were linked to from the Quick Launch menu.  I just made a new site using that template and it appears the custom pages weren't part of the template as when I click on the links to them in the QL menu, I get a 404 page not found error. I tried again saving the template with content this time and my custom pages show up - but then I have all the lists/libraries filled with old content.  Any remedy?

I am on MOSS 2007 and can use Designer.


review, edit and insert data using 2 diffrent database

  

hi,

is it possible to create a custom list in sharepoint designer to enter a vacation request and using a work flow that goes to the HR department. but when the HR department approve the request the HR can store these requested data into another database?

what i mean is, the employee fill a form in to request some vacation days using a custom list in my wss3 site. i assume that these data will be stored in the WSS_content database. now when the HR department get this filled form they have to store the data of the form in to a database but not in the WSS_Content database.

is this possible?


Customizing the Insert/Edit Forms

  
Hi, I need to have 2 tables show in one webform(one-to-one relationship). I have tried customizing the Insert webform from the PageTemplates(creating the entity folder under CustomPages and copying the Insert page from PageTemplates), but it shows a lot of duplicate errors, e.g. The type GRIPS.Insert already contains a definition for DynamicDatamanager1, ScriptManagerProxy, etc... Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks, CC

Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

  
I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi

Custom Edit form - close modal dialog and navigate to page

  
Hi, I created one custom edit form for my document library, replaced default save and cancel buttons with input buttons and added the form action to them. Then I set my page as default edit form.

When I try to save the item by clicking new save button, item gets saved but pop remains as it is. Now, I want the modal pop up to get closed and navigate to page other than the parent page with some parameters after I click save button. How can I achieve this? Thanks!!

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha
