adding sharepoint attachment field to customlist

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I added the  sharepoint attachment field.

 <SharePoint:AttachmentsField runat="server" ID="sp1" ControlMode="New" FieldName="Attachments"></SharePoint:AttachmentsField>       

But i could not see the control either on my pages.

I tried to put some validation on my customlist using ASP.NET requiredFieldValidatoon.

While changing the the Format as TextBox on Sharepoint Formfield,its turn to be nothing instead of showing the generic text box.

Also my Sharepoint field name id i used to get like "ff2{Pos}" on my SPDesigner 2007.I can't attach this id to ASP.NET required field validator.

Any idea ?

Workflow field not being added to list or views when adding a workflow


This problem just started happening in my entire site collection.  Anytime I associate a workflow to any list or doc lib the Workflow column that shows the status and links to the history is not beind added to the list or any views and is nowhere to be found.   Here's exactly what I'm doing:

1.  Go the List settings -> workflow settings -> add a workflow (for this example the OOB approval workflow)

2.  After adding I go to the List, the workflow column doesn't exist.

3.  I go to "modify view", and the workflow column is not listed in the available columns.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

SharePoint Batch Update Auto Increment Field Value

I am making use of SharePoint List Batch Updating methodology in order to update the items in bulk. I build the query dynamically for each and every item using StringBuilder and process the data ultimately using 'ProcessBatchData' Method.

Now, I have a requirement where I have to increment a particular field value in the query while iterating through each item for building the query. How can I auto-increment a field value for each item in the batch query?


Adding a custom ASP page to a sharepoint 3.0 site


I have a custom ASP page that I need to add to my sharepoint 3.0 web site.  I created a virtual directory under my website and placed the ASP file.  When I link to the ASP file, I get a 404 page not found.  To make sure I had the correct URL path, I created a test html file and placed in the same virtual directory and linked to it just fine.  I think it has something to do with managed paths and sharepoint trying to control this new ASP content.  I cannot figure out how to exclude this content from managed paths.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue so I can run this custom ASP file under sharepoint 3.0?

dynamic 'Today field' in sharepoint


how to do i get a dynamic 'Today field' in sharepoint?

I found many examples such as this which is completely wrong.  In the example below the [Today] is only calculated on item creation and edit, not every time list item is accessed.

SharePoint leaving Assigned To field blank in a Workflow Task



We are having an issue with occasional Tasks being created by a WF that have a blank Assigned to field.  Solution consists of:

  1. A form with a People picker field that allows the user to select and validate the Authoriser name.
  2. An Auto-start-on-New SP Designer workflow runs that does a "Collect Data from User action" and assigns the Task to the Authoriser.

Unfortunately, although this worked fine during dev and test, now the solution is live and we are having 150-200 requests per day, we are finding that the WF occasionally fails to fill in the Assigned To details when it creates the Task. (approx 8 failures per 200 requests, ie 4%).

As SharePoint already has the User data field, I am confused why this might fail, and there is no obvious pattern (same auth, 4 work OK then 1 failure). 
Does SP contact the AD again when it creates the Task?

Anything else I should investigate? any suggested fix / work-arounds?

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Use Sharepoint Calendar Start Time field in calculated column

I'm trying to limit the calendar view to current week using the Sharepoint defined field Start Time. However, when I display the serial number behind the Start Time it looks like it is actually giving me the serial number for the Created Date field. I believe it is because the appointment is reoccurring but I'm hoping there is a way around it. I created a new testdate field and manually entered the date and set those appointments as all day events however they are not reocurring appointments. The testdate returns the correct serial number however the start time returns an incorrect serial number. SerialNumber1=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])) SerialNumber2=DATE(YEAR([testdate]),MONTH([testdate]),DAY([testdate])) Start Time  SerialNumber1 Testdate  SerialNumber2 8/31/2010 40420 8/31/2010 40421 8/31/2010* 40405    9/1/2010* 40405    9/2/2010* 40405    9/7/2010 40427 9/7/2010 40428 9/13/2010* 40405    9/14/2010 40434 9/14/2010 40435 9/14/2010* 40405    9/15/2010* 40405    *These are reoccurring appointments scheduled as all day events. The others were entered as one time appointments scheduled as all day events.

adding a SharePoint content source using powershell

Hi I'm trying to create a content source using powershell and (I'm not a programmer) I've got this far -   [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Office.Server.Search, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Sharepoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c") $site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://breakfast/ssp/admin") $searchContext = [Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchContext]::GetContext($site)  $content = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.Content($searchContext) $Content.ContentSources; --> and now I'm stuck! I think I can use the Create method with type and name parameters but I can't work out how to translate this into powershell This is the code I'm looking at: ContentSource contentSource_com = content.ContentSources.Create(typeof(WebContentSource), "www.someurl.com"); WebContentSource webContentSource_com = (WebContentSource)contentSource_com; webContentSource_com.StartAddresses.Add(new Uri("http://www.someurl.com/index.html)); webContentSource_com.Update(); and $contentsource = $content.ContentSources.
