we created a custom editform.aspx for a sharepoint custom list andÃÂ addedÃÂ custom list form/dataform webpartÃÂ (insert-->sharepoint controls-->custom list form)ÃÂ control
to the webpart zone and set the visibility of default "ListFormWebPart" to false.
some of theÃÂ 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 theÃÂ list item.
The strange thingÃÂ we noticed is that this edit form(editform.aspx)ÃÂ alwaysÃÂ opens inÃÂ EDIT
mode (with page | Workflow | Tools | Save and stop editing)
links on the page(below the navigation control). thoughÃÂ "save and stop editing"ÃÂ 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
