How can I switch the "Linked to document" link from the 'name' column to another column e.g. title

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
In SP2010 it is not possible to click on the icon to open a document in a list web part. Therefore I want to move the 'linked to document' feature from the name colum to the title column (as I do not show the name colum on the site). How can I do it or how can I make sure that clicking on the document icon leads me to the document and not to the edit menu?

How to link Title to it's associated page in list view without URL path column visible -bug?

  
I don't know if this is a bug or if I'm an idiot (or perhaps both, I'm open minded).   My site I'm developing is a site with publishing features activated where all my news stories are pages. What I want to have is a sortable list (the type hypothetically achieved using the XsltListView Web Part) the lists these pages with 3 columns visible: The Date created, the title (not the page name), and the author. The tricky part is that I would like the title, when clicked on, to take the person to the page. I'm actually almost there. I've created a new view with these specifications except for one issue. To make the title linked to the page, I have to have the column "URL Path" in my list view. When I remove this column, the titles instead all link to the root of the directory I'm in (ex: if I'm in Pages/Forms/My_List.aspx it will link to Pages/Forms/) Is this a bug, or is the URL Path required for the link to work? Is there a way to hide the column? Thanks.

Creating a custom column with a link to document (other than the name field) in document library

  

Hello!

I have a document library with the standard name column linking to the document. However, we'd like to create a custom field and have that link to the document (and edit item menu).

How is this best accomplished?

Thanks in advance!

How do I modify the link of a Hyperlink column ?

  



OK , I'm a bit new to this game. I'm trying to build a web page that simply scans a directory in the server and creates a web page with links to the files in that directory - sounds simple and should be easy to do !

So I have a bit of code that reads the myDocuments folder in my web site and then populates a grid view hyperlink column with the filenames in the folder - wow it works !

The only thing I am struggling with now is getting the hyperlink correct within the GridView so that the user goes to the actual document.

So my code behind is;


Dim dirInfo As New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("~/MyDocuments"))  
       articleList.DataSource = dirInfo.GetFiles()  
       articleList.DataBind()  

which reads the file info in the directory myDocuments and binds the info to a datasource.

So now I'm using that datasource to display the filenames in a gridview so that the user can click on a name and open the file.


SOLUTION: Renaming the Title list column globally across the site collection

  
So, you screwed up like I did, and modified the Title display name of the Item base content type and it has renamed ows_Title across every list in your site collection? Here's how you fix it: //WARNING //If you have come this far, be aware that this tool is a blunt axe. With it, you can cause //all sorts of mayhem and chaos in your site collection. So, to use this, you must be desperate. //or possibly dumb. Apparently, I'm just as dumb as you, because I did it. This is why I wrote //this stupid thing, so stupid people like us can go right on being stupid. //Your choice of weapon in this battle amuses me. Shall we begin? using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Text; using Microsoft.SharePoint;   namespace RenameField {     class Program     {         static void Main(string[] args)         {             if (args.Length < 3)             {                 Console.WriteLine("Usage: RenameField <url-to-sitecollection> <internal-field-name> <new-fieldtitle>");               &n

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

  
I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

  
I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

Adding a column from another List to a Dataview? Must I link sources or can I just add a new data so

  
Using Designer, I added a dataview to a webpart page and dragged in a single list source. It works as expected. I now want a column from another list in my view. Must I link in another datasource, or can i just insert the data source for the second list into my datasources? The new datasource is there in the code and I see the caml select for it. but my XSL still does not find data: <xsl:value-of select="/dsQueryResponse/Master/Rows/Row[@ID = current()/@Key]/@Lastname" /> I noticed my new columns are not in the <datafields> tag, I tried adding them but it did not help. If Master is my lookup list , @Key is the dataview I will match with and @ID is the column in Master, and @Lastname column I want to return, is the above syntax correct? Many Thanks.

Lookup column uses ID instead of Title in rule formula

  
I have two SP lists: Partner and Request. Partner just has a Partner Name column, plus the ID column. In Request, I have a lookup column pointing to the Partner list. There is also a Title column and a Request Date column. When I set up the lookup I set it to get info from the Partner list’s Partner Name column, not the ID column.   I made an InfoPath form to make a new Request, with the Partner being selected from a Drop-Down List Box. When this form is submitted, I would like to change the Title field to be a string concatenation of Partner Name, a comma, and the Request Date. I made a rule to do this. Example of what I want: “Partner A, 8/27/2010”.  However, the result is that the Partner ID is used instead of the Partner Name and what I get is “1, 8/27/2010”.   (More: In production I would use the Form Submit rule to do this. For development I used a rule that runs when the field changes. If I change the Drop-Down List Box properties Value property (on the data tab) from d:ID to d:Title the string is formatted as desired, but the form won’t submit and shows a tooltip that only positive integers are allowed.)   How can I make the rule use the Partner Name column in the formula for the rule, instead of the ID?   Thank you, James.

Title Column-Document Information Panel

  

Hi, I'm pretty new to Sharepoint 2K10; I have the following issue.

I create a content type based on the standard "Document" content type that has the Title Column required.

I've activated multiple content types in a library and I've associated a ppt template to the content type.

When I create a new document based on the above content type, the Title field in the Document Information Panel (Office 2010)doesn't appear as mandatory even if it actually is.

That's generate confusion on the user.

Suggestions?

MOSS 2007 - I'd like to create a calculated column in a List that presents itself as a link (<a> tag) similar to how the Title column has version for Edit and View links (rather than simple text).  Is is possible top mimic this OOTB behavior?

"Email a link" column

  

Hello,

I'm new to sharepoint so I don't know how easy or difficult this is.

I am building a document library in Sharepoint 2010 and I need to display the url's of the documents in a column.  This url will be read by a program outside of our sharepoint.  I was able to add the URL Path column through SPD but I need the http://mycompany before that path.  Basically, I need it to look the same as the "email a link" without copy and pasting mannually everytime.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

List and its Title Column

  
Hello all,

I think its that time of year when you want to pull your hair out and wonder what sharepoint is doing ??

Observe the code inside siteprovisioning.vb file in visual studio site definition project

 ' //    Hide Title Column
Dim oList As SPList = currentWeb.Lists("Logs")
oList.Fields("Title").ShowInDisplayForm = False
oList.Fields("Title").ShowInNewForm = False
oList.Fields("Title").ShowInEditForm = False
oList.Fields("Title").Required = False
oList.Fields("Title").Update()
oList.Update()
currentWeb.Update()

As you can see I am trying to hide Title column from a list I have programmatically.

It's just not working...??

Can anyone advise what is an alternative.

PS - please don't suggest remove title column from list definition because I am not using a list definition merely a custom list type.

Thanks
