Append an Item to a SP List and NewForm dropdown menu

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

When Lookup Column on a NewForm.aspx, that was populated from another SP List, does not contain a value in the DropDown menu can it be added/inserted into the source SP List from the NewForm without leaving the NewForm? 

Is there code or example how to insert the Item in the SP List, then refresh/repopulate the Lookup Column's DropDown menu (in the NewForm)?

Or is there a better way to do this add an item both the List and the dropdown without resetting the values already entered in the NewForm?

Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item



I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.  I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.  I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.  I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).  I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.  When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.  The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.


I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.


I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.  It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.

dropdown list box with datasource assigned in code but need to also manually add an item?

helloI have some dropdown list boxes that I need to fill with data from a database but I also need the first option to be "Show All"... So I need to combine using a datasource and manually adding an item to the top of the list. I have tried two different ways with no luck:1. with the appendDataboundItems = true, on aspx page, and below code in codebehind://lstClass.Items.Clear();                 //lstClass.Items.Add("Show All");                 lstClass.DataSource = finalQuery.Select(i => i.CategoryClass).Distinct().ToList();lstClass.Items.Clear();lstClass.Items.Add("Show All");lstClass.DataSource = finalQuery.Select(i => i.CategoryClass).Distinct().ToList();2. with appendDataboundItems = false, on aspx page, and below code in codebehind:lstClass.DataSource = finalQuery.Select(i => i.CategoryClass).Distinct().ToList();lstClass.Databind(); lstClass.Insert(0, "Show All"); so what method *should* work when you need to combine a datasource with manually added items?

Databound dropdown list inside detailsview filtered dependent on selected radiobuttonlist item


It's driving me mad.  I have a detailsview bound to an sqldatasource. One of the items on the data table is to get its value from a dropdown list, so I created a template field and entered a dropdownlist, then bound that to a second datasource with the selection values in it. As the values can be male or female related, I have an unbound radiobuttonlist above the dropdownlist with two values - male or female - retunring an d"m" or an "f" and I want to use this to filter the records coming from the second data source for the dropdownlist.

I can't use a normal SQL control parameter on the datasource as the selector (the male/female radiobuttons) are in the detailsview and therefore "invisible".  I set up a normal control parameter with "none" as the type.  I then set the "autopostback" value to "true" for the male/female radio buttons and tried writing in the code-behind for the "maleorfemale_SelectedIndexChanged" event and using debug lines revealed that I was getting the "m" or "f" I needed by using "findcontrol", so that's fine.

I also tried adding in the "selecting" event for the second datasource to use the value of the radiobutton item, but although the "selecting" event fires

Removing forms from the List Item Menu with SharePoint Designer

In SharePoint Designer 2010, if one removes one of the default forms (say "EditForm.aspx"), how does he also remove the "Edit" option from the List Item Menu? The default forms are not represented in the "Custom Actions" pane when looking at the form settings page in SharePoint Designer.  The background is that we have created a custom form that is really add, edit and view combined into one.  We need to eliminate two of the pages and only link to the one that is left.
