Creating views on a form does not allow Hyperlinks to be clicked.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have successfully created an Info Path 2010 form which 5 views.  On each view it has a raft of information, on some of the views they are multiselect items to other sharepoint lists.  This is the basic make up of the form. The form is about Software Application information. Page 1 is General Information Page 2 Environment Page 3 Support This form is the form that opens for the SP list called Software Applications. When I open this list it shows the Software Application list as expected.  When I click on one of these applications it brings up the form mentioned.  The problem is, when the form loads it does not show the other views, so I am unable to change views.  If I am to change views I must first select EDIT and then the views are available.  The problems is when selecting the other views I can not select the hot links to the other items.  This is a major pain.  The only way I can see around this is only containing one view with the information broken up on one huge page. :(  Any ideas?

Switch views when opening a form depending on submit locations?

  

Hello!

I would like to know it was possible to switch views when opening a form depending on where the form has been submitted.

I am submitting my form to library A and library B and want to be able to open it in view 1 in library A and in view 2 in library B.

Is there a way to set some url conditions in the open behavior rules?

Thanks a lot!


Creating a "Save Button" in a browser based Form

  
I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious, but I need to have the funtionality of the "Save Button", which is available and works on the tool bar, available in the form...and I can't seem figure out how to do it.I've found examples, in this forum, of how to use the "Submit Button" to act as the "Save Button", which did work for me, but only when specific basic criteria was met.The criteria that I now have is that I'm initiating a workflow to automatically start when a new item is created.  My workflow then moves the form to one of a few possible different form libraries, based on the logic in my workflow.  The different form libraries are to manage different teams of people that would have access to the Form and then that team would process the form accordingly.My specific situation: 1 - User opens a new form (works) 2 - User enters data and then submits the new form (works) 3 - Workflow is initiated and the form is moved to another form library to be worked on by a select group of people (works) 4 - The form is opened and reviewed and some changes are made to the form data by the select group of people (works) 5 - The form data in the form libary is updated (works, but only if the save button is pressed in the tool bar and then manually closes t

Views for different group of people in form library

  
I have created a form library with many fields. And I have created 3 views say X,Y and Z for this form library. I have 3 set of User groups say A,B and C. When a person in group A visits this form library,  the view 'X' should appear. Similarly when a person in group 'B' visits this form library the view 'Y' should appear. How can we achieve this.. Any suggestions...

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

  
When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

namespace of fields problem when creating form template from xml?

  
I created a form template from a predefined xml, where I do not have any namespace. Later I added more fields. The output xml of the form is for the fields from the xml they have not prefix, for those added later, they have prefix my. I already have them all done. How can I make them consistent to have prefix my? Is there any options in InfoPath to turn on or off the prefix my?   thanks,

Custom Field - SP is creating HyperLinks and using HTML entities

  
Hello. I'm seeking help with a problem related to a custom field in SharePoint 2010. Our Custom Field builds upon (extends) the SPFieldMultiLineText field. Data saved to our Custom Field is being processed by SharePoint before it is sent to the client. For example < and > is replaced by HTML entities (&lt; and &gt;). Text such as http://bing.com and mail@bing.com is automatically being converted to hyper links (<a href="mailto:mail@bing.com">mail@bing.com</a>). Is it in any way possible to have SharePoint deliver the data as it was stored in the custom field? We don't want it to replace HTML with HTML entites, nor should it create hyperlinks automatically. I have attached our XSL file below. <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:x="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/dsp" version="1.0" exclude-result-prefixes="xsl msxsl ddwrt" xmlns:ddwrt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/runtime" xmlns:asp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ASPNET/20" xmlns:__designer="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/designer" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt" xmlns:SharePoint="Micros

Creating a form with an unknown number of rows

  
Hi everyone, I'm pretty new at ASP .NET but not to ASP.  I've got a form I need to create where I don't know how many entries will be added.  It has the following format: "Age"             "Duration"      "Period of Duration"     "etc..." Last30Days 1-5 Months ago 6-11 Months ago Age Age Age etc. So the Age column always has the first 3 options and then an unknown number of Age values that can be inserted.  I've created a table that has the first four fields (Last30days, 1-5months, 6-11months, age)  and I was thinking I could just order by those 4 columns for display.  The problem I have is I'm not sure on how to proceed.  Does anyone have any good ideas on how to handle this situation?  Ideally data entry people could use the same form for both entering and displaying the data.  Thanks.

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

Error creating edit form for external list - Failed to find the default form for PAGETYPE PAGE_NEWFO

  

For the last few days we have been unable to create custom new/edit forms for External Lists in Sharepoint Designer.  When i try to create a form Sharepoint Designer show the message 'Could not save the list changes to the server'.  The corresponding message in the ULS log file is 'Failed to find the default form for PAGETYPE PAGE_NEWFORM'.  Does this mean i have somehow managed to break the form templates for External Lists?

I saw some other posts about the 'Could not save the list changes to the server' error and followed the suggested steps including removing all versions of the list and related content type, and recreatign htem but this didn't work.


Creating a fill in form and also a help desk ticket form in Sharepoint.

  

I want to do two things in Sharepoint. First to create a fill in form where users would be able to fill in information & submit the form. It will get routed to me. Secondly, I want to create a help desk kind of thing in Sharepoint.

I know infopath could be used for creation of forms , but I don't have access to infopath. If anyone could send me a link to download it free, that would be great. otherwise, I would be interested in knowing other ways to accomplish same results.

Thanks in advance

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,
