Custom Field Control 'not registered as safe'


Hi all,


my goal is to create a custom field control based on a custom field, to be part of a custom content type which derives from a publishing page. Also I want the custom field control to be part of a custom page layout which is associated with my custom content type.


I followed the steps from Patrick Tisseghems book 'Inside MOSS2007', which includes the following instructions:


  • Create and implement the following classes: CustomField, CustomFieldValue, CustomFieldControl. Sign them and deploy the assembly to the GAC.
  • Create a User Control Custom.ascx. Copy it to Controltemplates directory.
  • Create fldtypes_custom.xml and copy to 12\TEMPLATE\XML
  • Add <SafeControl /> entry to web.config

I did of all the above plus I created a page layout in SharePoint Designer which contains an instance of my CustomFieldControl.


When I create an instance of CustomPage (derived content type from Publishing Page, with extra field of type CustomField) with my custom page layout and add it to the Pages library of my Publishing site, everything seems to go fine. When i edit properties of the page with /Pages/Forms/EditForm.aspx I can even edit the custom field value trough the interface using mu custom field control! Everything seems to work perfectly!


But... this

Custom Validation Attribute is not called by validation mechanism.

Hello everyone I have create custom validation attribute and assign it to class level validation. Unfortunately, it is not called. I try every way that it think it could be solve the problem. However, it take me for hours and I can't find the attribute is not called by validation mechanism.For illustrate you I put the following code.Attribute[AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Class, AllowMultiple = true, Inherited = true)] public sealed class BooleanDependencyAttribute : ValidationAttribute { private const string _defaultErrorMessage = "?????????{0}"; private readonly object _typeId = new object(); public string DependencyPropertyName { get; private set; } public string DependentPropertyName { get; private set; } public BooleanDependencyAttribute(string dependencyPropertyName, string dependentPropertyName) : base(_defaultErrorMessage) { DependencyPropertyName = dependencyPropertyName; DependentPropertyName = dependentPropertyName; } public override object TypeId { get { return _typeId; } } public override string FormatErrorMessage(string name) { return String.Format(CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture, ErrorMessageString,name); } public override bool

Creating a custom drop down field type with SelectedIndexChanged Event

Hi All, I am trying to create a custom drop down field type and I was able to acheive that using the MS link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb861799.aspx. As per the link, once the custom field is created we can override the "Validate" method to write the Validation logic and that works fine for me too. However I am facing a challenge even before going to Validate . Let me explain my actual requirements here. I need to build a custom drop down field and expose the field to the user in "Edit Properties " Page of a document library. Along with this field, I will be having some OOB site columns in the Edit Properties Page (Ex: Title, Subject etc)  . When user selects a value in the drop down, I need to hide/show few OOB site columns based on certain criteria.  I am facing a challenge of how to capture the "SelectedIndexChanged " event for the Custom drop down field in Sharepoint (Can we wire the SelectedIndexChanged event to a custom dropdown field type) ? Is this acheivable in SP 2010 Custom field type ? If so, how can I do it ? Can any of you kindly help me here?   Regards, Yesh
