SharePoint field type "hyperlink or picture"

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

I am making a workflow which creates a task for a user.
When the task is created I want to insert an URL into a custom column in the task list of the field type "hyperlink or picture".
I have managed this through the following code in my createTask activity:

        private void CreateMyTask(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
              ...
              myTaskProperties.ExtendedProperties.Add("CustomLink", "http://mycustomsitelink.com/somelink");
        }

The only problem is, I can't figure out how to set the display text for this link. It will show the entire link on the screen, and I would like it to show something like "My link" while clicking it would lead you to the URL.

SharePoint 2007 to Access 2007 - Issues grouping by "Person or Group" field type/column

  
We are on SharePoint 2007 and using Access 2007.  The SharePoint list contains a column called Assigned Person, column type: Person or Group, single selection, displaying only the name 1) When we Open with Access and Export a copy of the data, then create a report from that table, we do not have the option to group on Assigned Person.  2) When we Open with Access and Link to data on the SharePoint site, then create a report from that list, when we group by Assigned Person... The same person has 2 groups - there are is no other grouping or sorts on the list, and i can't locate a correlation to another field to show why they would have to collections for the same person The Person or Group column sorts "from smallest to largest" as though it is a number field. The list is a task/activity tracking system we created custom for our needs.  We want to pull a weekly report, grouped by Assigned Person, but cannot get access to work.  We do not want to resort to anything more complex, as it takes a much longer process to have reports pulled by Chrystal or one of those types of applications.  And we cannot change out the field for something like a Choice column as the list already has a very large amount of content.  Can anyone assist? Is there a setting hiding somewhere that is causing the problem?

It`s fine, but resulted SharePoint list recieves contacts as text and stores them also like text fields (ad account or name strings).

But i want to see name`s field type of User or Group.

Can that be done ?


Mandatory description field on a 'hyperlink or picture' column type on a list?

  

I've been given the task of making the 'description' field of a url column for a list on one of our sharepoint sites, mandatory.

The problem is that the field is already set as mandatory in the list template (deployed as a feature), although this only makes the web address / url portion of the 'new item' page a mandatory input. The box below this ('Type the description') remains a non mandatory field.

Is it possible to make this field mandatory as well? I would have to do this at a feature (schema.xml) level if so.

Thanks.

SharePoint Batch Update Auto Increment Field Value

  

Hello All,

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?

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.

This is very important my customer wants it done asap.

 

Thank you.

SharePoint leaving Assigned To field blank in a Workflow Task

  

Hi,

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?

"The base class includes the field 'WebUserControl1', but its type (common_WebUserControl) is not

  
Hello.

I tried to convert a project from ASP.NET 1.1 to 2.0 and found one big problem which stops the whole process.

An .aspx page from the subfolder "admin" includes a user control from the subfolder "common". Both subfolders ("admin" and "common" are in the root).

root
- admin
-- aspx page
- common
-- user control

The page works well when started from Visual Studio, but when the project is precompiled for deployment, the next error occurs:

"The base class includes the field 'WebUserControl1', but its type (common_WebUserControl) is not compatible with the type of control (ASP.common_webusercontrol_ascx)"

I tried to use "Reference" in the .aspx page, but that doesn't work.

Does anybody know any workaround for this?

Store XML in XML type field or using FILESTREAM

  
(Posted this in Database Design, but then thought I should post here as well)   Hi All,   I am trying to figure out what would be the best method for storing xml documents in the db...if we should use an XML type field or if we should use the newly introduced FILESTREAM? We would have a need to shred those documents for queries and possibly use the FULL TEXT SEARCH to allow for user defined searches on those documents.  Does anyone have any thoughts on either approach for SQL server 2008?    Always apprecaite the input I get on this forum...very helpful.   --B
