Error creating a normal Custom List

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am using the normal sharepoint screans to create a custom list. When I click create it falls over with

'w3wp.exe (0X2254) 0X2C80 CMS Publishing 8Ztg Medium Got list item version, but item was null. ' on the log files.

This is a publishing template site with no VS custom list definitions.
This is just a normal site.

The page cannot be displayed error when creating new item in custom list


Hi i am workign with a cutom list and every time i try to add a new item and hit ok i get the error shown below. Sometimes it happens and other times it doesnt and it only happens with a select few. One way of getting around this error is to not edit it on the page on which it is on but to go to view all content then to the custom list.

I have tried observing whether there was an issue with the pages being checked in and checked out but all pages were checked in and published. I tried deleting and recreating the custom list and no luck. Your feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks in advanced

btw i am a user with full control and our site is being hosted.

Error creating Read Item or Read List operation in Sharepoint Designer 2010

In terms of high-level requirements, I need to pull in lists from a couple of different web apps.  To do this, I’m using SPD 2010 to create an External Content Type for the list of interest.  I’m able to create a SOAP Service or WCF Service connection just fine.  However, when I try to create the external content type and create a Read Item Operation on one of the GetList or any other Get* (or other Update methods for that matter) methods, I get the following error:"The method that your operation is based on has parameters with complex types that do not have default parameterless constructor.  This kind of data source methods cannot be used in Business Data Catalog."I tried defining an operation on the “AddAttachment” method, and that worked just fine.  I also tried providing default values to the listName and viewName parameters when creating the SOAP Service connection, but still get the error.  Same issue with a WCF Service connection as well. Does anyone know if this is a 2010 issue, or am I approaching this requirement incorrectly?  What are other approaches for connecting to lists that reside in a different web app than yours? 

Error deleting an item from Custom List in 2010

I have an issue that I can't figure out, concerning deleting an item from a custom list in SharePoint 2010. If I create a custom list and add a few items, and I attempt to delete one of these items by selecting the checkbox to the left and using the "Delete Item" command on the Ribbon, I get this error (in IE):Object Expectedinplview.jsCode:0Line:2Char:20804URI: <a long nondescriptive URI>Interestingly enough, if I attempt to delete the same item by viewing it and selecting "Delete Item" (in the dialog box), it works that way. It seems like I can't delete items using the command in the Ribbon. This is also true for deleting library document items.Any ideas on how to solve this? I can't seem to find out what this inplview.js file is used for, and it doesn't exist on the server PC (I did a file search for it, and came up empty).Thanks,John

Creating a Site Column that Looks up an External List causes error when saving site as a template.


I'm not sure what the best practice is here, but I'm having a major issue trying to save sites as templates and I think I narrowed it down as to what the issue is.

When I try to save a site as a template, it creates the solution package, but it doesn't activate it.  When I try to activate it manually, I get the following error:

Feature definition with Id e9431ed5-27b1-4c33-9eeb-81b4ace9d372 failed validation, file 'test1ListInstances\ElementsFields.xml', line 481, character 231: The 'SystemInstance' attribute is not allowed.

I opened up the solution package and looked at the ElementsFields.xml file.  I traced the line to this:

<Field Type="BusinessData" DisplayName="Acme People Name" Required="FALSE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Group="Custom Columns" ID="{55b3bbba-a7e3-4698-9946-648a6b726e9e}" SourceID="{026904fd-f2d0-4e57-a239-c6da838458fa}" StaticName="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" Name="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" SystemInstance="ACME" EntityNamespace="http://????????:28241" EntityName="People" BdcField="FullName" Profile="" HasActions="True" SecondaryFieldBdcNames="0" RelatedF

Error occurring when clicking the New button for a custom list


I have a custom list that was created from a list template, when I click the "New" button the following error occurs:

"An unexpected error has occurred"

I tried resetting the site definition of NewForm.aspx to the original but the error still occurs.  This is the only thing I can find in the logs regarding this list:

Creating a Custom View for a Custom List


I have been thrown in head first to MOSS 2007 and am trying to learn it as fast as possible. Here is what I got:

A custom list that is populated from an external database by a timer job every minute. There is also another job that clears items in that list that are over an hour old.

What I want to do is, create a view/web part that essentially shows a gridview with certain columns from the list. Also need a column that is calculated on the fly, and is not in the list (basically create a hyperlink to another site based on a column in the list).

I also need 2 buttons or something next to each row that will allow me to manipulate that row. And I need that list to autorefresh every few seconds to reflect changes in the list.

What would be the best method to do that?

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.

Error when creating a custom site template



In VS 2010, I created a new SP project to create a custom site template.

W/O modifying the content, except setting the output path of the webtemp file to another language, I have the following error when I try to create a site based on this template :


failed to instantiate file "default.master" from module "defaultmasterpage": source path "default.master" not found


I've taken a look at OOB site templates, and I don't see what is missing.

I'd appreciate any help.




FYI, here is the content of my onet.xml  file :




Creating a Custom List Definition that uses InfoPath Form



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?

Problem with creating Custom List in SharePoint Designer


Hello all,

I have used SharePoint designer 2007 to create a custom list for my SharePoint 2003 portal.  The list is quite simple, without any extensive programming. 

First I created a 'shell' for my list inside of SharePoint, where I name my fields and select their input types (Choice, Date, Currency, etc).

I then create a new .aspx file, insert a Custom SharePoint List into the new file, and use the above mentioned 'shell' to insert my content.

From this point, I rearrange the design, insert a few basic JavasScript elements - for image rollovers - and save.

The page displays perfectly in my live SharePoint environment.  However, when I enter data into this form, and submit, it doesn't save the data correctly.  For instance, there's a Yes/No option near the end of the form, defaulted to No.  If I click that checkbox - to set it to Yes - and submit the form, the resulting record does not show that I had clicked the checkbox.  In fact, it shows the whole form as being blank, as if I had entered nothing at all.

If this makes sense, how would I go about fixing this?
