Not able to insert text to a RichText field

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to insert a modal dialog return value to the RichText field (FullHTML) through Javascript. When i was digging on to the RichText field i found that each text that we give on the RichText field is stored within a <div> tag.The RichText field itself is rendered in the following manner.

<iFrame ID="[RichText_CliendID_iframe]" its a hidden field>



<iFrame Baseline ID="[RichText_ClientID]"

<div>The text that we entered here</div>


I have tried getting the reference of the "RichText_ClientID" and created a <div> tag. But this doesn't work. When I tried getting the reference of the "RichText_ClientID_iframe" and then added a <div> tag to it. I am able to add to this (Have observed this through Dev Tool bar), but couldn't able to see it on the field. 

I am just relating one of the SharePoint OOTB behaviour to this "Insert ---> Upload File" (Displayed on the list forms ribbon button for the RichText fields). Using this option i will be able to upload a file to "Site Assets"

FormView Text Field Being Set by A Drop Down List


Hello, I have a FormView which is used to insert a record into a database.  Outside of this formview i have a drop down list, I want to grab the value from that drop down list and set one of the text fields within the formview to it's currently selected value.  I've tried the following code, but the dynamic categorytextbox line is what seems to not be working.

Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

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.

Adding starting text to a column field

I am wanting to know if there is a way you can add starting text within a field that displays within a page layout?  I have a page layout that has a field (column) called 'page summary'. What I want to do is when a content managers creates a new page based on that page layout, the text "This page contains a public notice" is automatically inserted in the page summary field and the content manager can continue typing or highlight the text and remove it. Kind of like adding a base 'Text Value' to the field (column).  I want to be able to do it without having to do custom code though.

Get Text Value in Gridview from Invisible Field

Hello,  I've run into this before, but I was using a formsview and just changed the field to hidden.  If you've seen my previous post I am trying to get the value of a cell out of a gridview to a variable and here is the code: Protected Sub GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles GridView1.SelectedIndexChanged Dim varClientID As String = GridView1.Rows(GridView1.SelectedIndex).Cells(6).Text.ToString() End Sub This works perfectly if column 6 is visible, but because it's an id number (which is not the primary key) I do not want it visible, but changing it to visible="false" causes this code to return null.  Changing it back to visible and it works.I'm not sure why the visiblity of a control changes the functionality of it.Are there any other ways to get this data out?

Showing highlighted text (HTML) in calculated field?

Greetings all,   We're porting our 2007 list to 2010. In Sharepoint 2007, we used the following Calculated Column code to display a highlight over items that had different statuses:   =IF(Date="","<DIV style='background-color:#ff6666'>Not <b>Yet</b> Set</DIV>", IF(Finalized=TRUE,"<DIV style='background-color:#66ff66'>Finalized</DIV>", "<DIV style='background-color:#fffa91'>Tentative</DIV>"))   When we use this in Sharepoint 2010, it doesn't seem to apply the DIV structure. Any ideas of how we can change our code to make this work? Thanks! --Dave   No matter -- I need to add a code snipped ( http://marijnsomers.blogspot.com/2010/01/write-html-code-in-sharepoint-via.html ) to the page... thanks!

Rich text field showing html code

I am an end user of Sharepoint. This issue only happens from my computer, not from any other within our organization. What happens is that when I edit an item in Sharepoint that contains a rich text field, HTML code is showing. Like so: <div class=ExternalClassC900CFF4F2BF4312A89133C01A6E3C96> Some text</div> This happens from any web browser. Sharepoint 2007 is used. I have Windows 7 x64. Any idea what is causing this?

Insert picture from sharepoint disabled in editor field

Hi, When I create an announcement list, the body is a" multiple lines of text" field with then enchanded rich text editor mode enabled. When I add a new item, I can open the tab insert and click on picture. There I get 3 options: from computer / from address / from sharepoint The option "from sharepoint" is disabled (grayed out). I looked on the forum here and google, and all I could find was that the SharePoint Server Publishing should be enabled, but that is already the case on my site, and still the option is disabled. I tried with a custom list, but it gives the same problem. When I add a content editor web part on one of my pages, the option to insert a picture from sharepoint is enabled. So it's only happening when trying this inside a listitem. How can I browse for a picture inside SharePoint from the editor inside a listitem ?

Display each new line of a sharepoint mutliline text field as choice in drop down box.

The question pretty much says it all. I have a lot of data I need to represent, and this would be the best way to do it. I have a multiline text field in sharepoint, where each line has a choice that should be a seperate choice in a text box. How do I do this? I have the data connection set up, and I would be fine with adding some sort of tag after each line, if that would make it so infopath can somehow parse out those tags, and interpret each "chunk" as a choice. Thanks in advance for your help.

xml as text will not save in table field in some cases

I have a stored procedure that saves 4 fields into a data table named xml.  One of the fields is called xml, and is just a text field.  Usually, my sp properly stores the data, but occassionally the xml portion of my record is not stored.  It's on a remote server, so I'm having trouble hooking up a debugger to it, but I may have identified some charactoristics of the data in the cases where the data is not saving into the field.  I think it has a lot of "......."s mixed in with the xml.  I'm wondering if SQL could be identifying this as some kind of security threat.  Any thoughts would be super appreciated. 

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T
