Display Images from a Custom List's Attachment Field

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
i need to show each item on the list with image that was uploaded to its attachments field. the idea is that this list is a news list and will be show as a grid with the news and their corresponding attached image. i tried to add a custom column of type Picture, but it only allows to have a hyperlink added. i need the ability to upload the image on a new item creation form.   if there is a way to display it that would be great, if not please recommend a way to accomblish what i have explained.     thanks

How to change the display name for LinkTitle or Title field in a Custom List programatically


We have a requirement, where we need to create a list from "Custom List" Template, through a console application.
But we need to change the Display Name of the column named "Title" created by default to something else say "CategoryName". We do not want to remove the column but only change its display name, so that the column with name "CategoryName"still has a hyperlink and ECB menu attached to it..

The same can be done by going to list settings and changing the name of the Title column, but I am not able to figure out how to do it progrmatically.


"Title"].Title = "Some Other Name";
CustomListName.Fields["LinkTitle"].Title = "Some Other Name"

Best way to display data of a single column from a Sharepoint Custom List

I'm trying to create pages that will automatically populate with data pulled from a sharepoint list (like title, department, contact info, etc.).   I'm using publishing pages. What would be the easiest way to do this, and how would I specify which data to pull from the list? For example, the page would be set up like this: [Title:biology] [Department:biology] [Contact Info:biology]   and when the page loads, it would look like this: Biology Lab Biology Department 123-456-7890   I want it to just pull the data -- I don't want a list view or anything like that.  I need this page to look pretty, and I need the each column's data to show up in a very specific place. How could I make pages that would do that?

Workflow - automatically create discussion item using title field of of custom list item as its subj

Anyone any ideas as to how I can configure SharePoint to create a discussion item using the title of a list item. e.g. user creates list item on a custom list - SP automatically creates a Discussion thread for this list item in the discussions list.

Viewselector is not working in a custom ASPX list view nor does the custom view display in the list


I created a custom ASPX page to display data from a linked datasource in SharePoint designer. (Let's call it NewView)   After creating the new page I inserted a web part zone then inserted a data view into the zone and attached the default master to the page.   From the linked data source, I added the columns I wanted to display in the data view and added additional columns from the 2nd linked list as a subview.

I copied the following code just after the </WebPartPages:SPProxyWebPartManager> tag and just before the <WebPartPages:WebPartZone tag:

  <table class="ms-menutoolbar" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%">
    <td class="ms-toolbar" nowrap="">
     <SharePoint:NewMenu runat="server"></SharePoint:NewMenu>
    <td class="ms-toolbar">|</td>
    <td class="ms-toolbar" nowrap="">
     <SharePoint:ActionsMenu runat="server"></SharePoint:ActionsMenu>

Automumber Custom List Field


I need to create a custom list which includes a field wich will be updated when the user changes the "status" custom field (option with several values) to an auto-incrementing number.


This is, if the user updates the status field to an specific value.. I need to set the value to this custom field... but it must be unique and incremented by one in respect to other items in the list.


This is the classic "autonumber" column... Is it possible to do this in MOSS?


How could I achieve this behaviour? Any tips?

I working with creating an External List with ECT and .NET Type. Im using Sharepoint Foundation and

I can't figure out how I can change url to the different forms like with a regular CT I use something like this:

ct.EditFormUrl = "_layouts/someeditform.aspx";<br/>
ct.NewFormUrl = "_layouts/somenewform.aspx";<br/>
ct.DisplayFormUrl = "_layouts/somedispform.aspx";<br/>

I have tried changing the list displayformurl and there it complains about it can't find the url or something like that.

BDC field cannot save on Custom List Form


I'm having a problem with a Sharepoint Business Data Catalog, I have a List which are connected by BDC to a SQL field/table, and with standard sharepoint Forms it all works fine, I can lookup data in BDC and it saves correctly.

However, I need to create a Custom List Form for New Items on this list, and whenever I do this - the BDC works for lookup, but it doesnt save the data in the List when the item is created ?
(All normal fields save, but the BDC field is just empty on the new Item)

Anyone got any bright ideas? Cause I'm running out.

custom field type works in view properties, but not in list view: 3 parent fields filter child list,


My situation:

A) odd thing is that no matter where I put a stop point in my custom field type, it is NEVER hit when the items are displayed in list view.  Event with <Field Name="CAMLRendering">TRUE</Field> which causes the list to error out, but again no stop point to help me know why.

B) the value of the column in question will be different for every user who views the list, I'm querying a secondary list based on the user's loginName, and two of the fields from the list we're in. 

C) the display is customized based on whether any records were returned and the current DateTime, so possible displays would be "", "! 12/1/2010", and "7/7/2011"

D) and the text displayed links over to a form for them to do their assignment. the link url would be a config setting url + "?[one of the fields form the list we're in]"

My questions:

1) Is it possible for fieldtype code to execute while a list view is being rendered?

2) If not, then should I chase down the path of a content query webpart?  Will it be able to filter on the current users login name?

3) If not on 1 or 2, can you think of any other way to do this beyond creating a custom application page? (need to having filtering and sorting on this page)

Custom List with attachment problem


Sharepoint 2007:

I created a custom list and the user can attach two files that is stored in listitem.attachments.

I try to give the user a delete button but when I perform the delete I get an error.

When I press the delete (image button) the page postback and if I click for example another button (a save button or an add attachment button) it raises an SP Exception (No item exists at http://server/site/Pages/edit.aspx?id=37. It may have been deleted or renamed by another user). If I go to the list and then return in the item everything is fine.

In order to add the attachment I am using the following code:

if (FileUpload.PostedFile != null && FileUpload.HasFile)
    Stream fStream = AnswerFileUpload.PostedFile.InputStream;
    byte[] contents = new byte[fStream.Length];
    fStream.Read(contents, 0, (int)fStream.Length);
    SPAttachmentCollection attachments = myItem.Attachments;
    string FileName = Path.GetFileName(AnswerFileUpload.PostedFile.FileName);
    attachments.Add(FileName, contents);

In this article, the author will develop one such report renderer that outputs HTML reports, but the skills you'll learn can easily be used to create a renderer for Microsoft Word documents or any other format of your choosing.
