Sharepoint Foundation - Create and deploy custom edit/view forms for external lists


Firstly, we are using sharepoint foundation so Infopath forms are not an option for us.

We have a Visual Studio sharepoint project which deploys a complete sharepoint site. The site contains a number of external lists and we want to be able to create customised view/edit forms for these lists and add them to our Visual Studio project so they can be deployed as part of the new site. The idea is that we can deploy the solution to a fresh site with a default set of forms which can then be customised for different implementations of the site.

Here's the steps we have been using to try and do this:

1. Deploy the base project (BDC) to the sharepoint site

2. Create external lists based on the BDC content types

3. Use Sharepoint Designer to create new edit/view forms for the lists and set these as the default forms for the list

3. Save the site as a template

4. Import the template into a new Visual Studio project and select the lists we require. This gives us a List Definition, a pages module (with element file), an elements file and a schema file (both for the List Instance).

5. We then add the contents of the imported project to our main solution as follows:

  • Create a new List Definition (including List Instance)
  • Copy the contents of the imported Elements.xml to the Elements file for our List Instance.

How to create a custom Gantt Chart for SharePoint using VS

So I have been told you can't create a custom gantt chart using SharePoint Designer.  I don't believe that actually, there must be a way to create one from scratch using SPD and a Data View and editing the XSL directly....but assuming there is not..

Are there any articles that explain for a non-developer how to create a custom gantt chart for a SharePoint site using Visual Studio 2008?

Can I deploy a custom site page from the VS2010 SharePoint project?

Hi We're setting up some demos of our sharepoint plugins and want to easily deploy these into sharepoint so that all members of the company can easily get the demos running on their own machines. This is fine for layouts, web parts and so on - but the demo also has a customised sharepoint home page (which I edited in SP Designer) - how do I make this edited home page part of the VS2010 project so that it can be deployed easily to any site collection?   Thanks  

How to create a custom view in SharePoint 2010?

I can't find a good answer for this with the 15 minutes of searching I have done. Makes me think that there might be some roadblocks here.  I want to create a custom view for a list in sharepoint. Basically, I want to conditionally apply some custom table row formatting based on a value of a column in that row  conditionally add an image along with a text in a column (again based on a column value) I am thinking that a custom view is the way to go...any direction on this? maybe a link to a good example? Thanks, Jake.

How to create and deploy custom masterpage

I am trying to build the custom masterpage and I have read and googled a bit but not getting complete hold of how to proceed. Still has lot of IFs and questions. My objective is to create a masterpage that will have completely new skin/design from default.master and also different type of navigation bar (both right & left menu bars). The menu bar will have its menu contents read from sharepoint list (or similar). I am bit confused about the above as how to proceed and which to choose for the above mentioned. Also I see doing in SPD will not be a good option if we need to deploy the masterpage across servers and doing in SPD will have portability issues. Not sure about this.   Please suggest how to proceed with the above.    Next question is once I have masterpage created, how do I deploy it ? and will it appear in masterpage galleries in site actions menu? If I want to attach an existing ASPX page to this mastersheet, what value should I specify in that ASPX page? Currently the ASPX page has something that begins like  "~sitecollection/"  thanks.  

create a custom "newform.aspx" for document library using sharepoint designer and web services


Hi All,

I need to change the look and feel of "NewForm.aspx" for my Sharepoint 2007 Document Library. But the constraints are

1. I cant use C# coding. No Visual Studio.

2. Not allowed change anything in the farm level. e.g. cant install features/webparts fo this.

3. Can only use JavaScript, JQuerry and Sharepoint Designer 2007.

I came across some suggestions that we can create a custom page in Javascript/JQuery. Which will take all input data and insert new items in list/doc library using some XML services.

Please help me, I dont know if this is really possible. Let me know if any alternative is possible.

How to deploy custom assembly to Sharepoint and invoke it from Silverlight or WPF client?


I apologize upfront because my questions are probably trivial, but I don’t even know the correct wording to search for solution. We have C# assembly which performs some OpenXML processing and now we need to “plant” it to Sharepoint 2010 server, so that it can be invoked from the client to work on server documents.


1.     How (in what form) do we deploy it to the server, so that it is accessible (invocable) from the client code? We use VS 2010 for development.


Create Custom Site Template & Deploy as Farm Solution


So I've seen a few posts and blogs about this, but nothing with the specific error I'm getting.  All I'm trying to do is create a custom site template from an existing site (now WSP), and make that custom template available in CA so I can create host-named site collections from that template in PowerShell.  Apparenly this was a lot easier in 2007, as you could just save your template as STP, and run some stsadm addsolution to get it in the farm.  With 2010, I've read there are 2 options:

  1. Install-SPWebTemplate
  2. Deploy via Visual Studio 2010

I've tried running Install-SPWebTemplate (which only takes CAB files), and NOTHING I do works.  I've created a cab from the WSP with makecab, I've renamed the WSP to CAB, and all I get is "cannot find or parse web template file".  So on to VS2010.

Using this article as a guide (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff408263.aspx), I created a new 2010 Import existing solution project, left all items selected, and the import was successful.  I made a change or two to the ONET.xml to fix some things, and then I just try to deploy it to the farm.  Whether I set the URL to the root intranet site, or the CA URL, I get deployment conflict errors:

Sharepoint Designer 2007 - Workflows stopped and can't create custom NewForm or custom EditForm


Everything was working great until the last few days when I made the SP site more robust. I am now ready to create a custom New Form so that my "requestor" doesn't have to deal with all of the fields. I want to create a custom Edit List so that I can hide all of the flags that get tripped while completing workflows. This morning I tried to create the NewForm (as I have done in the past) but nothing loads. I tried creating it with a different list, and it loaded fine so I know it has something to do with my list. I tried executing workflows so that I might be able to narrow down the problem, but now no workflows work even though they did a couple of days ago.

One of the items added as a "pause until" workflow. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. I also have roughly 85 fields. I haven't seen anywhere on the blogs that the number of fields is an issue but you never know.

Can anyone help? Please?

Deploy and update script file with custom ribbon tab to Sharepoint Server 2010


Hey everyone,

currently I'm building a custom tab for Sharepoint Server 2010 and at the moment I'm stuck on the following issue,
with the first debug deployment Visual Studio sends the .js file that provides some functions for the ribbon elements from Scripts folder in the VS project
to Sharepoint Server.
However, it won't apply any changes I did on the script afterwards to the file on the server.
So the effect is, that as soon as I do the next debug, the previous script is being used by Sharepoint and the new version, containing the new code, is left aside.

It seems to me as if Visual Studio would only deploy the .js file just once and then rely to this copy, maybe there are some configuration settings to make, but after hours of research, I still can't figure out where things do go wrong or what configuration to apply to update the script on the server.
I couldn't locate the file on hdd either, even searched the whole fs but the results showed only the new script file.

Any help on this would be very much appreciated, this issue drives me nuts and consumes plenty of time ;)

Workaround at the moment: each time the script is changed, set up new project... :D

Greets, Norman
