Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

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

Dynamic Data Foreign Key Filter - how to limit the # of dropdowns on the list view



I have a visual basic website in VS 2010 framework 4, linx to SQL, with scafolding.... and this dataclass has about 10 foreign key fields, of which all 10 are shown in the list view of the website.  I want the ability to exclude those filters from the list view (or exclude some and keep some), but without eliminating them from the edit forms.  Using <scafoldingcolumn("False")> does the trick to remove them entirely but that will also remove them from the grid/list itself, which I don't want, and remove the column from the edit record views, which I don't want either.

Any help would be great!!!!

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.

BCS Data List - Unable to Allow Filtering

Hello,   I'm using the BCS Data List to display values from the 'Contoso Inventory List' on the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 demo machine.  I'm unable to allow user filtering of data - the options appear grayed out.  Here's what I did: Dropped a BCS Data List web part on my page Selected my External Content Type Data appeared as expected I then clicked the 'Edit View' link to modify the BCS Data List view The selections under 'Items to Retrieve' are grayed out - with "Retrieve All Items" selected by default.   I had hoped to use 'Retrieve items specified by the user' which in SharePoint 2007 BDC gave the user filtering options.I'm hoping someone can help me understand what I'm doing wrong.     Thanks!   Steven   ps - I get the same behavior with different SharePoint sites and External Content Types, so I don't believe it's a problem with my SharePoint site.

XSL Lookup to another List in a View. Joining in data from another List. xsl:value-of select=

I've been able to create a DataView with data joined from two SP Lists. I did this using SPD, a linked Source, and doing joined subviews.  The technique works nicely, but I have to create my DataView from scratch.As an alternative, I took an existing AllItems View in SPD, converted it to XSL, and was able to add a column from another List as follows:   <TD Class="{$IDA1VDGH}" style="width: 62px; height: 23px"><xsl:value-of select="/dsQueryResponse/Master/Rows/Row/@Lastname" />The problem is, it reports the column for the first row everytime. I'm new to XSL and was wondering..    using XSL, and preserving all the original columns already in the View, is there anyway to make the added column smarter, maybe with a filter?I noticed in my working example, I have this filter (I guess where the subview join magic is)            [@Title = $dvt_ParentRow/@Key] which does not resolve syntax:I tried this, but it does not work, only finding one match, and it also seems to get set for the entire Dataview and not just the column.     [../../../Master/Rows/Row/@Title = @Key] I guess I'm looking either for the SPD steps, or XSL code for adding a single column from another list, joined in by a column in both lists.Thanks for any help or information.

Data View and Scheduled Start & End Dates Filtering

I have a data view that needs to display all pages that are current and the closing date is greater than or equal to today's date. The issue I am having is that the data view is displaying pages that are have the a future scheduled start date or the scheduled end date is past, i.e. something that has a start date of tomorrow, is displaying and a page that has an end date of yesterday is displaying. I can tried to filter the data view on the scheduled start and end dates but I can't see it in the Filter Options of the 'Common Data View Tasks'. I have also tried adding XSLT Filtering but am unsure how to set it up.  I have added the following as an XSLT filtering [@PublishingStartDate<=$Today or string-length(@PublishingStartDate)=0] I am wanting to check whether I have done this correctly or not. Some pages won't have a scheduled start date but all will have an end date. Below is the code from my data view: <WebPartPages:DataFormWebPart runat="server" ShowWithSampleData="False" AllowRemove="True" AllowHide="True" SuppressWebPartChrome="False" PartImageLarge="" ViewContentTypeId="" ExportMode="All" Dir="Default" MissingAssembly="Cannot import this Web Part." ID="g_fdf00570_38e8_4df9_8ab3_5ca3ed974c41" DataSourceID="" IsIncludedFilter=""

About Filtering in Dynamic Data



Is there a way in which you might provide an answer to the following:

(A) In what I call "Bulk Insert Mode" (which is just staying in the Insert page after an insertion has been made) I would like to have available all previous selections I already have made in the dropdownlists of the previous entry. All other might as well be "reset" for fields like dates, text, numbers, etc.

I need to implement this feature as to make data entry easier to the end user. e.g.:

Imagine you are entering products into a catalog and the products table has (let's suppose) 20 Foreign Keys belonging to reference data as : type of product, type of package, brandname, type of transaction, accounting code, country of origin, warehouse code, userlogin, dataentry, color, container type, type, shipment number, etc.

As it is now in Dynamic Data after an insertion has been made it takes yoiu back to the List page and if you choose Insert again then everything has been already reset and you have to start from scratch ...all fields are empty and the dropdowwnlits are set to [No Set] ... pretty ugly, uh? (... ooops ! sorry for the oxymoron)

(B) I'd also like to know the way in which I could implement cascading among filters considering its inheritance (I don't know the

Unable to view data on list views

I have two lists. A List item in one list will be inserted to the other list based on the actions. This is easily achieved on the event receiver by adding the list item to the target list. Though I adds the list item to the target list; i am only able to view those data when i click on "Modify View" and simply click on "OK" button. Basically its a view refresh / commit. Has anyone came across such issue?

Can a Dynamic Data page update a View?



I just started working with Dynamic Data (asp.net 4, VS 2010 express, C#) and have tried to simplify the displaying/not displaying of columns by using a simple, single table, updatable SQL view.  Adding and displaying the view work and the in-line edit and update controls are there and seem functional but I can't access any of the columns.

Does DD not support updatable views or have I missed something?


Data View Web Part, update to Data Source / adding new list to existing data source


Hi all,

I have four Lists with identical columns :

List 1
List 2
List 3

I had to merge them, hence i created a data source ( Linked Source ) and merged these lists in SPD. I have used a data view webpart to display some columns from the merged lists data source and everything was working fine.

But now i have a new List : List 5 which also has the same columns like the other four lists and i need to update the data soure such that it is merged list of 5 lists not 4.

i updated the datasource property of the linked source to merge this new list as well. However the contents of List 5 dont appear in the data view webpart. 

Am i missing something here ? 

I dont want recreate the data view web part from scratch eachtime , because in future there might be List 6 , List 7 as well ...
