Inserting a custom list form for a custom content type

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
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". I already cleaned up my profile (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/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) I use MOSS 2007 version and SP designer 2007 SP2 on Win7. Below you can see an example of the custom content type.     Columns Name Type Status Source Title Single line of text Required Item Segment Lookup Optional   Form Lookup Optional   Main Product Lookup Optional   Weight Number Optional   Price/Kg Currency Optional   Unit Price Currency Optional   Manufacturer Lookup Optional   Packaging Lookup Optional   PL Yes/No Optional   Label Lookup Optional   USP Lookup Optional   POSC Lookup Required   Place Lookup Hidden StoreCheckHeader Country Lookup Hidden StoreCheckHeader SC_Link Single line of text Hidden StoreCheckHeader

Create a list definition without a Custom Content Type

is it possible to create a list definition without creating a custom content type?  I want to create a list definition and select "Custom List" and then I just want to add fields to the custom list and not create a content type that will show up in the SharePoint GUI.  Seems like to get the new fields to show up in the new and edit forms I have to add the fields to a custom content type.

BCS Method Security / External Content Type Permissions / Custom List Security Provider / Security T


I have an external list setup with the usual CRUD methods.  The external SQL table is also being populated by another source.  I want to enable/disable deleting depending on whether the record was created from SharePoint.  I would also like the normal list permissions to work.  So if a user has permissions to delete on the list, they can only delete items created for SharePoint. 

Where should this logic be incorporated?  On the BCS Delete method, somewhere in the External Content Type or on the list instance?  Most examples I find relate to security trimming for search.  I'm only concerned about the delete method.

I'm sure there are multiple ways to accomplish this.  Which is the best?


Custom Action for specific External Content Type List


I have an External Content Type list instance feature in Visual Studio. Deploying the instance works fine. However, I can't create a custom action using RegistrationId="{$ListId:Lists/yourlistname;}" RegistrationType="List"

Even if I specify the list Id as follows RegistrationId="{8F595340-5D08-4287-8BF6-30D50989D2F4}" or RegistrationId="8F595340-5D08-4287-8BF6-30D50989D2F4" I get nothing.

However, RegistrationId="600" works fine, but for all External Content Type lists.

I added the custom action with SharePoint Designer and it works as expected. When I generate a site template and import it into Visual Studio, the custom action uses RegistrationId="{$ListId:Lists/yourlistname;}" RegistrationType="List"

Creating a new site based on the site template creates the custom action correctly. However, deploying just the custom action does not work (feature deploys, but no custom action appears). I also tried RegistrationId="0x0100D67E541CC4BB6A4A9D62D22657ECFF68" RegistrationType="ContentType" with no luck. The content type id was pulled from the list instance using the object model.

I have to tie the custom action to a specific list instance. Because the li

Custom Workflow TaskEditForm(Custom Content Type) not getting displayed in Tasks List.



I have developed a custom sequential workflow. I have also developed a custom content type derived from Workflow Task Content Type.

I have 1 TaskEditForm.aspx in this custom Content Type. The custom Content Type is getting associated with the Tasks List but when I click EditItem option in ECB Menu or Ribbon,the in-built EditForm.aspx gets displayed instead of displaying my custom TaskEditForm.aspx from the custom Content Type.

Can anybody help?

http 400 Error when performing item upload after setting custom edit form on content type



What I am trying to do is create custom edit forms for different content types within the same document library.....so basically I have done the following:

  • I have created two site content types and reconfigured my library to use CT's. 
  • I then connected to my site using SPD. 
  • When examining my library I can see that I have the two CT that I added earlier.  I then created a new editform for one the CTs using the top ribbon menu and in the drop down box associated it to the CT.  I did not select this as the default form for the library.
  • I then updated the library CT (not site CT) with the url to form in the editform properties.

When I create a document and edit the properties it works fine - totally as expected.  However when I upload a document the default EditForm for the library is used and I can select the CT to associate the document to.  When I choose the CT with the custom form the new edit form is not found and I get a page not found error - http 400.

The full url for this library is is http://XXXX/functions/ehs/CSI

So the URL I have used is /functions/ehs/CSI/Forms/EditForm2.aspx (EditForm2.aspx) is my form and this is fine.  I have even used CSI/Forms/EditForm2.aspx and this works...  BUT ne

How do I deploy a custom form with a Content Type?

I have a VseWSS solution which deploys a site definition. Within this are some site columns and content types. With one of these custom content types, I'd like to use a customised form for displaying details. I know how to do it manually via SPD (List Properties > Supporting Files > Content Type, etc) but I can't figure out how to include it in my package.

Custom document library list template issues with custom content type


Either I don't know what SharePoint is doing or I don't know what I'm doing (or both, which is more likely).

I'm attempting to create a Custom Document Library template with a custom content type association (Custom Document), all using a feature. When I create
a document library based on the installed template, the content type association is there. However, when I click on New Custom Document, the template.dotx does not reflect the Custom Document content type association. The Word document information panel does not show any Custom Document content type properties (like Title and Comments).

Here are the steps I've taken:

1. Create the feature.xml with element manifests of contentType.xml and CustomDocumentLibrary.xml
2. Create the contentType.xml (Custom Document) with an additional field reference for Comments
3. Create the CustomDocumentLibrary.xml for the list template
4. Create a Custom Document Library subfolder that contains the same files that are in the 12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\DocumentLibrary\doclib folder.
5. Edit the schema.xml to use the new content type and field reference
6. Deploy and activate the feature
7. Create a new "Custom Document Library"
8. Go to Custom Document Library Settings and verify the Custom Document content type is being used
9. Click on New Custom D

Adding a custom form to List's FormCollection in code

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

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
