List Definition & List Instance

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Greetings,

I'm trying to deploy a new list definition and with it a new instance of that list. Unfortunately this doesn't work completely. I just wanted to create a new list with some field without any content types.

In schema.xml I did the following changes in the Fields node:

<Field ID="{64E1AAB3-C232-42A5-AAA9-2819AE762044}" Name="test" DisplayName="test" Type="Text"></Field>

And under ViewField

Best method for creating a site definition containing a custom list instance

  

Hi,

I want to create a new site definition which, when provisioned, includes an instance of a custom list. The custom list definition is contained in a feature as part of the site definition project. What's the best method for creating an instance of this custom list?

I can think of a few ways to do it:

- Modify the onet.xml for my site definition to include an instance of the list

- Use feature stapling to enable my custom list defintion feature when a site is provisioned using my new site definition and include a list instance in the feature.

Is there another more suitable method?

Thanks,

Rob


Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature

  

I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.

I made the readonly attributes to false for lookup columns.  

SharePoint List Source and Destination BIDS adapters not working for our sharepoint instance

  
It was with great anticipation I installed the SharePoint List Source and Destination BIDS adapters (from CodePlex, http://sqlsrvintegrationsrv.codeplex.com/releases/view/17652). Unfortunately, the adapters are not working for our MOSS sharepoint instance.  We're a DOD (department of defense) site, so the level of security may be higher than normal and may be affecting the adapters. The error message was lengthy and I couldn't copy it and paste here.  I did screen shots and put the complete error message at http://www.christianbahnsen.com/sharepoint_source_error_message.pdf If I can get this to work I think it would be very useful.  I'd played around with KPI Lists, but one cannot create an Indicator directly from SQL Server 2008 (cf. my related thread at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointbi/thread/bcc95f65-012e-4b8a-8850-b03fb0f16b0f).  I was hoping that these adapters would provide a work-around by populating sharepoint lists that could be the source for KPI Indicators. As always, thanks in advance for any assistance. Christian Bahnsen

InfoPath list definition of type Document Library

  
Is there a way to create a list definition that is a document Library and deploy to SharePoint 2010 that is based on a InfoPath form?  Meaning that it will deploy and if I select the "add new item" link it will automatically open a new InfoPath form that a user can submit?  I have the infopath forms created already but I need a way to create the form library through visual studio so I can promote through our test and production environment and have it automatically and deploy to the different environments and create the proper list structure. 

Feature Upgrade Functionality - Adding a new Content Type and List Instance

  
I've successfully used the upgrade functionality in SP 2010 to upgrade my list structures as needed. So far, these updates have been adding new fields to existing content types. Now, I have some new fields, content types and list instances to add, and am having trouble getting this accomplished. The scenario is this: - A new content type with a single custom field (also new), and a list instance for this new content type - A new field that is a lookup back to the new list instance defined above. This new field is added as an existing content type. - In my feature.xml, I have the Element Manifest specified with both new fields and an AddContentTypeField element for the new field being added to an existing content type:   <ApplyElementManifests> <ElementManifest Location="V1_04\Elements.xml"/> </ApplyElementManifests> <AddContentTypeField ContentTypeId="0x0100..." FieldId="{8028A1C8-1147-4DF7-B5C3-8A1F84A30360}" PushDown="TRUE"/> The result of running the update on this feature is: - My new field that is part of an existing content type is added - My new field that is part of a new content type/instance is added - My new content type and list instance is NOT created, therefore my lookup is broken Any idea why my new Content Type and List Instance is not being created? Do I need to specify there

How can I remove/hide built-in Title field in list definition

  
Now I'm customize a new Content and then new List Template, just like below definition;  <ContentType ID="0x0100ed096ab35eeb4d2e98fb71b9842e9616" Name="Staff Member" Group="Berry Gardens Internet">  <FieldRefs>   <FieldRef ID="{fa564e0f-0c70-4ab9-b863-0177e6ddd247}" Name="Title" />   <FieldRef ID="{F5E777EA-C083-4c2f-BC10-E4BF2B4D6372}" Name="Synopsis" />   <FieldRef ID="{2307576C-A060-4c2d-BABC-34E5A9924667}" Name="Image" />   <FieldRef ID="{051B830A-8105-4384-9AA1-103CEE43B760}" Name="Email Address" />  </FieldRefs> </ContentType> It is inherit from Item parent type, and using built-in Title field({fa564e0f-0c70-4ab9-b863-0177e6ddd247}), but I found that it's diffcult to remove/hide it. When in the default list view, there are two Title fields. So what can I do in the list definition. Regards upzone

Issue Adding a new Lookup Field to an existing List Instance

  
I have a code base that houses all of the column, content types, template, and list instance definitions. Am using the Update functionlaity a lot from version to version. Has been working well to this point. I just added two new columns (fields), one a Lookup and the other a Multi-Lookup. The fields are added fine on the update, columns look correct and the content type to which these were added also look fine. I can create a new List instance from the content type, and the new lookup columns are fine. The problem is this. Any existing list instances that were created from this same content type, now blow up when I try and access list items via the SP GUI. Something about a valid GUID, I dont't have the exect error anymore, but will repost it when I recreate the issue for the tenth time. I tried deleting the new lookup fields from this new list instance, thinking that I might be able to re-add them to fix the problem, but I get a new stack trace when I try and re-add them. Any hints on where I can start digging would be appreciated. I think I'll start with comparing the list instance schemas between an existing list and a newly created one.

lookup field list instance

  

hi,

Got and problem with and lookupfield I create some list instances, list definitions, content types with a lookupfields and all works fine  the list resovels the good list source guid so I can selected te values but when I try to save I get;

<nativehr>0x80070057</nativehr><nativestack></nativestack>Invalid data has been used to update the list item. The field you are trying to update may be read only.

When I manualy create a new list instance from the list definition everything works fine.
I'm guessing that the create list instances in the feature is causing the problem?

What am I doing wrong?

WSPBuilder only including dll, not including list definition files etc

  

Hi All,

I have a project that contains:

2 Content Types

2 List Definitions

2 List Instances

Event Receivers for 1 List

Have grouped the List Instances and Definitions, so in my WSP View I have 3 features

   ContentTypes

   Lists

   Event Receivers

 

Now, when I build the wsp through VS 2008, it only includes the dll, it doesn't include any other files. So on deployment, none of my features get installed.

Any ideas?
