DataForm in WPF

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I'm new to WPF and kind of confused that there is no DataForm control? I always thought of WPF as the bigger sister of SL and therefore should have all the controls SL contains. Or am I missing something? How could I achieve the same results (validation based on attributes etc) in an other way?

Thanks for clarification!

Dataform in Expression Blend

Can Expression Blend 4 handle a Dataform control? I added a Dataform control to my xaml in VS 2010 and when I now open the same project in Blend it throws an exception. Also the reason i added it in VS 2010 was that I could not find the Dataform control in Blend. Am I missing a reference/namespace etc...?

Dropdown on the Dataform webpart

Hi  I have a question regarding dropdown on the dataform webpart in MOSS 2007 I am having a dropdown box on the dataform webpart and it is filtering depending on site column. The content is coming from a custom list and  by changing the value of the dropdown. But I want the content to be loaded for the particular item when the page layout loads. Now it is coming all listitems when the page loads. I checked weather OnLoad method exist for the webpart but I couldnt see nowhere. Can anyone help me to solvethis Best

custom editform.aspx with dataform webpart

we created a custom editform.aspx for a sharepoint custom list and added  custom list form/dataform webpart (insert-->sharepoint controls-->custom list form)  control
to the webpart zone and set the visibility of default "ListFormWebPart" to false.

some of the  form field controls (not required fields) are removed from the dataform webpart. we are able to open an item in edit mode using this custom edit
form and save the  list item.

The strange thing we noticed is that this edit form(editform.aspx) always opens in  EDIT mode (with page | Workflow | Tools | Save and stop editing)

links on the page(below the navigation control). though  "save and stop editing"  link is clicked the page is posting to the server but with no luck, still able to see those links.

We noticed this only with editform.aspx but not with Newform.aspx,displayform.aspx.

Environment: MOSS 2007 + SP2
