List Properties Supporting Files Display item form won't stay set

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

In Sharepoint designer I am trying to set a custom display form for a list, following the instructions in the Sharepoint designer help.

 

I've got a functional display form, called DispForm3.aspx. I know it works since I tested it by replacing the form name in the normal URL where a display form is opened.

 

However I can not get the list to accept this new form as the display item form.

 

In Sharepoint Designer, in the List Properties Supporting Files tab I set the Display item form to be DispForm3.aspx and press OK. When I look again I see that the Display item for is DispForm.aspx.

 

This happens on any list that I try to customise the display form for, even new ones.

 

Sharepoint designer is allowing me to set the display item form to DispForm3.aspx but is not saving it, or is failing silently when it tries to save it.

 

Any assistance appreciated.

List Properties > Supporting Files?

  

I don't understand one of the fields/drop lists I am seeing on the Supporting Files tab.  It is the second one down  "Content type specific forms:",  then the drop down list has Folder and the the name of my Content Type used for that list.  I know that selecting the correct one is important in selecting a new edit item form because my edit form select doesn't "take" if I select the Contenty Type one. 

Also, in case they are related, in my list when the new Item button is clicked, the user is presented with creating New ContentType Name.  Why is that? Why isn't it a new item?


There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Add a New Item to a Custom Sharepoint List and Sharepoint Calendar from one Infopath form.

  

I am trying to create an infopath form for requesting time off.  Once the request is approved I want the form to add the event to a calendar on sharepoint.  I was able to do this using the article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-item-sharepoint-calendar-infopath.htm.  But I want the form to also add an item to a custom list that has the employees available time off stored on it.  That way the form can automatically subtract the time entered on the infopath form from what is available on the custom list.  I was able to do this using another article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at  http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-rich-text-item-sharepoint-list-infopath.htm.  I can make both of these functions happen seperately but I need them to happen on the same Infopath form.  I am using Infopath and MOSS 2007.  I have tried to use 2 CAML receive data files and I treid to co

Custom List Edit Item Form

  

If I change the default querystring variable from ID to CustomID then it doesn't show the relevant record from the list.

I did this to avoid an error

"No item exists at http://moss-server:18498/pagescollection/EditGroupMeetingPlannerForm.aspx?ID=88.  It may have been deleted or renamed by another user."

What should i do, to avoid this error. Plz help me.


Metadata properties set in list item, but don't show up in the DIP.

  

Hi folks,

I'm creating a document programmatically on the server side and using SPFileCollection.Add(...) to create it using the binary contents and a hashtable of the metadata properties.

This works great in SharePoint.  The SharePoint list item picks up the metadata properties and a new document item is created in the library with the proper metadata for all of the fields.  If I view the properties or go to edit the properties in SharePoint, all of the metadata is correct.

However, when I open the document in Word, it seems that none of the managed metadata fields (taxonomy field types) "stick".  The values are only for the managed metadata fields.

In SharePoint, if I change any of the fields and do a save on the list item and then open the document, the taxonomy fields "stick" when I open the document again.

I've opened up the document to view the XML and it seems that the custom properties XML doesn't change from pre-update to post-update.

I've also tried calling SPListItem.SystemUpdate(...) and SPFile.Update(), but this has yielded no results so far. 

So in summary:

  • All fields except for managed metadata fields "stick"
  • All fields show up fine in SharePoint in view and edit mode
  • Managed metadata fields are blank when Word document is open

Custom Form Fields not appearing in Workflow Tasks column list when try to Update List Item

  

UPDATE:  This problem seems to be solved by closing and reopening the Workflow xoml wizard.

Hi,

I have created a 3 step workflow and at each step I have a Collect data from user task that I use to Update my list item.  I actually have 4 options (If Else clauses) per step and for each option I have to collect the same data from a different user.  So I'm aiming at using "Update list item" 12 times in this workflow.

I have been developing this workflow over some days but the Custom Form Fields that I create in the "Collect data from user" task are not always available when I try to "Update list item".  By which I mean, I try to specify the "data source and field to perfom the lookup on" and I can select the "Workflow Tasks" list but the field that I just created in the "Collect data from user" task does not appear in the fields list!!!

I can't determine why a field doesn't appear.  I have tried using no spaces or special characters, keeping the name of the field short but for some reason my newly created field doesn't appear in the list.  The field does appear in the content type when I look at the settings for the "Workflow Tasks" list and the field appears in the "Workflow Tasks" list of columns and the site content type.&n

problem copying list item containing office 2007 files, fine with office 97-2003 format

  

hi,

I created 2 document libraries, with a few fields in it, one of it is the people and group field named "Approver".  The thing is, when the document is of 97 - 2003 format, the approver field gets copied over fine, but when is of 2007 format, it does not get copied, its only the people and group column, I tried different names like Hidden_Approver, but yet it does not get copied. Am I doing something wrong here, and have anyone else faced the same error


How to remove blank item from infopath form in drop down list

How to send an email to Supervisor (field in the form) after New Item in a list is created?

  

I have user who creates a record and User's Supervisor, who need to get notification about new record (different Users have different Supervisors and they input them manually into field when create a new record).

(Users I've mentioned are domain users with emails assigned to them and we use Outlook that is integrated with our sharepoint)

 

1) I've tried to create a workflow in Sharepoint Designed (as described here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sharepointdevelopment/thread/2A525E2F-2407-42C9-AB9D-B5FB609B34B5) , but there I can choose only concrete email address (I need it to be populated from the field on the form).

I think the workflow can be configured somehow to send an email to user from a field, but I don't know how. 

 

2) I've created a new view with filters by Supervisor and configured Alerts for the view, but it is too complicated for all Supervisors to do that. (just not the best solution)

 

any ideas?
