This one is throwing me for a loop. I've joined two lists using "Linked Sources" in SharePoint Designer. On a new ASPX page I added a data view and added 3 columns (Title, Priority and AssignedTo) as a multi-Item view. I can select
a row and apply conditional formatting to the Title field (changing the background color if @title = 'Parent 1') and the changes are displayed in the design pane. The only oddity there is that I have to go back and edit the condition
in advanced mode, changing the XPath expression from
../../../Rows/Row/@Title = 'Parent 1' to @Title = 'Parent 1' and then it seems to work just fine.
Here's the problem. I want the condition applied to the AssignedTo column (hide row if 'AssignedTo != 'John Doe') If I create a condition to hide contents if the AssignedTo = 'John Doe' it creates the XPath expression
../../../Rows/Row/@AssignedTo = 'John Doe'. When I save it, the row is still visible. If I edit the XPath expression, changing it to @AssignedTo = 'John Doe'
and save it the row is still visible. The same is true if I simply try to change the background color, conditionally formatted against the AssignedTo column.
Does anyone have any ideas here?
