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

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

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

Webservice versions.asmx: Getversions-method returns error on an item of a custom list.


I using GetVersions from the webservice http://server/_vti_bin/versions.asmx. This method works Okay in SharePoint 2007, and in SharePoint 2010 it also works Okay on documents from a document library. But when I used on an item from a custom list, it returns an error stating: "Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: key". In SharePoint 2007 I could retrieve the histroy on an item with the call GetVersions("Lists/MyCustomList/5_.000"), in SharePoint 2010 this fails.

Do I need to change the parameter, or use another filename for an item instead of "5_.000"? Does any one have the same experience?

Thank you

Creating a custom page for a different action - not insert/details/edit/list?


If want to make a new page with a different action (not insert/edit/details/list) is the website root the right place to put it?  That seems to be the only place where I don't get a "404 - Not Found" error.  I just wondered if there's a best practice for this ... maybe creating a new action in addition to List/Edit/Insert/etc so that my page can go in the same folder with the other pages for the same table.  For example could I add a "Print" action and then put my page in DynamicData/CustomPages/SurveyResponses/Print.aspx?

Thanks in advance!

Access Denied error on custom workflow task list item


We have created a two level custom approval workflow on (an InfoPath) form library using SharePoint Designer (SPD) with first and second approver. The workflow works fine as long as the approver is in the Site Collection Administrators group. The approvers who are not in the admin group can get to the custom Task form for approve/reject, but they can only view the form. When they click on the “Edit Item” button of the task list item, they receive “Access Denied” error. We have given these approvers “Approve”, “Contribute” permissions on the Form library and even Full Control on the task form list (all items). Note: The users use their domain account and the error they are getting is: Access Denied, You are currently signed as DomainName\LoginName, Sign in as a different user.

We have read through several forums and have found people having the same issue. We tried all of the suggestions described in the following links - but no success so far.

Assigning users when creating a list item in a workflow


I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.  When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.  When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.  How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?  Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?

Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi
