List view search and results - No Column view?

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


Recently we have moved from Portal server 2003 to Sharepoint Server 2010 and can't seem to find how to search a particular list vie(filtered view) and also how to have the search results return in column view.
Previously in Portal server 2003, our end users had the ability to do full text search in any list view. This allowed our end users to easily search a subset of a list. The returned results were also in a column view

In Sharepoint Server 2010, the list view search, searches all items in the lists(instead of the filtered list view) and also does NOT return the results in column view.

Is there anyway around this?

How to link Title to it's associated page in list view without URL path column visible -bug?

I don't know if this is a bug or if I'm an idiot (or perhaps both, I'm open minded).   My site I'm developing is a site with publishing features activated where all my news stories are pages. What I want to have is a sortable list (the type hypothetically achieved using the XsltListView Web Part) the lists these pages with 3 columns visible: The Date created, the title (not the page name), and the author. The tricky part is that I would like the title, when clicked on, to take the person to the page. I'm actually almost there. I've created a new view with these specifications except for one issue. To make the title linked to the page, I have to have the column "URL Path" in my list view. When I remove this column, the titles instead all link to the root of the directory I'm in (ex: if I'm in Pages/Forms/My_List.aspx it will link to Pages/Forms/) Is this a bug, or is the URL Path required for the link to work? Is there a way to hide the column? Thanks.

Is it possible to hide column header in list view webparts?


I can't seem to find a way to hide the column header of a list view web part.  Is it possible?  It appears that OOB the only list that doesn't show the column header in web parts is the Link List.


Display Version History in List View Column


I am working with a multitext line for comments and I have enabled versioning.  The version history shows in each item within the View Form.  I was wondering if I can have the comments field list in the List View as a column with all the version history.  Right now, it shows as a link "View Entries...".  I would like to be able to view all versioin history in the list view under the comments column.

Is is there a feasible solution?

Thanks in advance.

Issue with People and Groups type of column in datasheet view of shrepoint list.


We have a list created in MOSS 2007 which has a column of type people and groups. When we open the list in datasheet view and try to add records for people and groups type of column the column shows only records from All People section of the site collection. I have verified this for another site collection within the same web application where I am able to see all the users though they are not in the All people section of site collection.
Could anyone please let me know if I am missing any setting or if there is any change required to see all the user names in the people and groups type of column in datasheet view.

Thanks ,

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

Datasheet view lookup column issue


When a column that has a lookup is empty in datasheet view and I attempt to update a different column I get this message: the text entered for isn't an item from the list. select an item from the list, or enter text that matches one of the listed items.

I found this hotfix, but it did not apply.


Any ideas how to get this resolved?

Calculated date field displays differently in List View and Data View web parts

In SharePoint GUI I created a simple custom list with a calculated Date/Time field (Due).  The calculation is =[Created]+7.  I'm trying to display this data on a page using a DVWP.  But first, for testing purposes, I also created a second calculated Date/Time (TestCreate) field in my custom list that is simply =[Created]. In the List View from within SharePoint, the dates show as expected (for example): Created = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM Due = 8/19/2010 3:45 PM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM In SharePoint Designer, I added a Data View web part and the above three data elements (each configured to display mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt).  I see the time displayed for the example list item as: Created = 8/12/2010 3:45:30 PM Due = 8/19/2010 10:45:00 AM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 10:45:00 AM I've tested a couple scenarios and the calculated fields always display five hours in the past (along with dropping the seconds).  It seems like the DVWP is returning the date in a different time zone (with no seconds).  The lcid is set right (1033).  I didn't see any time zone settings for the DVWP specifically.  I'm basically stuck.  Could someone help me figure this one out. Thanks.

List view - inline editing with read only fields

I'm new to sharepoint and using SP2010. I would like to use the inline editing feature of list view and at the same time to lock some of the fields. Is there a simpler way to achieve this like adding some field property using SP designer?

List View Permissions and Views for Web Parts

My fellow developers and I are going in circles a bit with our new Sharepoint 2010.  This question probably has several different answers.   I have a list of grades and comments that our Team Leaders want to create and save on Sharepoint.  When saved, the user who was graded should be able to see their own grades.  Its a pretty simple requirement and I'm 90% of the way there.   I created a list with the required fields, and two separate views.  The first view filters the list by the user's name so they see on their grades.  The second view shows all grades in a grouped order by the person who assigned the grade.  To make this second view more readable, I added some formatting with Sharepoint Designer 2010.  It looks nice.   Here's where the speed bump occurs.  I create a web parts page for each view.  The page showing only the user grades works as expected.  The other page, however, shows the list in a view that I didn't create.  No matter what view I select from the "Edit Web Part" menu, it always shows this strange view.  If I select the list, it says its current view is "Default".  The second view I created is set as default, but its not the view I see.  If I change the current view from list menu to the second view specifically, it shows up correctly. &n

Create a new list View Style

Hi, In SharePoint 2010 for XSLT List View Web Part you can assign different view styles using SharePoint Designer. For example "Basic Table", "Boxed" or "Shaded" etc. These styles just don't fit my needs. So my question is how can I create my own View Style which I can apply to any list? I came across "Customize XSLT > Customize Entire View" option under Design tab in SharePoint Designer which allows me to change the XSL stylesheet and control the rendering for a list. But how can I create my own list "View Style" which I would like to reuse with other lists too? Thanks, Hitesh  

How to hide the list ribbon in XSLT List View Web Part?

Hi, In SharePoint 2010, I have a custom list "Clients" on a site. On the home page of the site, I have added a Clients List Web Part. When I access the home page in a browser and click anywhere in that list, it displays the "List Tool" ribbon group which has "Items" and "List" ribbons. I do NOT want these ribbons at all when clicking on the list. How do I achieve this? Should I disable the click event on the list so these ribbons do NOT appear? How do I disable the click event on the list? Or What should I do to hide these ribbons when clicking on the list? Basically I want it to behave same as content query web part. In content query web part, if you click anywhere in it, it doesn't show up any extra ribbons. I want the same behavior with list web part. Thanks, Hitesh

How to add List item in search results for anonymous in a publishing site?

Hi all,   For now, results in Library (document set or not) are shown and the link is the binary file. This is ok. But for list, anonymous users can't view results. As logged in I see the items in the AllItems.aspx page. How could I allow this result to be viewed by anonymous users too?      Thank you,   Benoit Pironet
