Multiple Content Types in a single list - how to edit fields outside a content type

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have a single list and created two content types on the list in order to reduce the amount of visible fields a user sees when entering a form.  Once the form is filled out by one group with the limited data, an alert is sent to another team that adds to the list item using the larger set of fields defined by the second content type.  Unfortunately it seems that the edit burron remembers ihe initial content type that the entry was created with.  Is there another url to access the edit button for the same entry using the alternate content typr?

How to set the order of custom fields in custom list definition of Multiple Content Types

  

Hi all,

First of all I am sorry for my poor english.

I have a custom list definition and I have mentioned two content types in the "Schema.xml" file of this list. I need to change the order of fields in NewForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx.

For e.g. I have two content types ContentType1 and ContentType2. ContentType2 is inheriting ContentType1.

Fields of ContentType1 are

1. Field1

2. Field2

 

and Fields of ContentType2 are

1. Field3

2 Field4

 

When these fields display on new form the order of fields is

1. Field1

2. Field2

3. Field3

4. Field4

 

But I need to change the order of field by

1. Field1

2. Field3

3. Field2

4. Field4

 

Can anyone help me to change the display order of fields in new and edit form?

 

Thanks & Regards,

Sandeep

 


Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

  
I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Duplicate Fields during list creation from content types and site columns

  

I am trying to create a List in Sharepoint 2010 using Site Columns and Content Types. It results in creating duplicate fields in the list for the Site Columns used. Here is the details description of what I was doing.

I have created two site columns 

 

<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="Start Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{A3F2D108-11B5-4B49-9633-338D27227E12}"
Name="StartCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="End Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{06B927BB-C354-4A0A-AE88-9C14E55EAB27}"
Name="EndCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

Then added these to a new content type I

Change the content type for multiple list items

  

I have a document library which is configured to manage content types.  Users will be expected to upload multiple documents into the library.  Then they will be expected to choose the content type of the file and fill in the required metadata.  The only difference in these content types is the template which will be used to create new files of the specific content type so the columns are identical for each content type.

I have created a public view with inline editing enabled but Content Type is not an editable field.

The problem I have is that when I enable Inline editing, the users don't have an opportunity to select the content type, even though the files have just been uploaded and have not been checked in.

My question is this; how can users change the content type of multiple items without having to go through the complete New Item form? 

With literally thousaands of documents to be imported, having the users fill out a separate form for each document when many will have the same column values is a show stopper for our rollout.  It will take too much time.  The project will be a failure. 

I've also tried to create a datagrid view but the same problem exists.  Content type is not an editable column value.

Thanks for helping.

External Data Fields in a Word Template saved as a content type in a document library with multiple

  

I have created a Word Template for a Document Library that has an External Data Column in it of Client Name which also adds Client Address1, Client Address2, Client City, Client State, & Client Zip.  Now this works fine for a Document library with that template as the Template.dotx file. 

I want to be able to make a bunch of Templates and have them all as Content Types in one Library.  When I do this I cannot get the External Data Quick Parts to work.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cannot Edit Multiple Publishing Html Fields (Additional Page Content Fields)

<div id="featureArea">

<PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField ID="rhfFeatureArea" FieldName="FeatureArea"

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.

Add new content types to multiple libraries

  

We use MOSS for document management and content types for document types (i.e. specification, quote, PO etc.)).  We would like to add additional content types to our libraries.  I was hoping to find a tool that would help me to propagate these new content types ad I am not a programmer.

 

 


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

Create a list definition without a Custom Content Type

  
is it possible to create a list definition without creating a custom content type?  I want to create a list definition and select "Custom List" and then I just want to add fields to the custom list and not create a content type that will show up in the SharePoint GUI.  Seems like to get the new fields to show up in the new and edit forms I have to add the fields to a custom content type.

Assigning a reusable workflow to all content types in a list in one operation?

  
When creating a reusable workflow I choose a base content type. I would really like to assign this workflow to the content type at site collection top level and get it to automatically work in all lists that include this content type, and also have it set to work for all children of this top level content type. It seems to me that I have to manually associate this workflow to all lists and content types? I am missing something here? Henning

Retreive content type of a list programmatically

  
Hi everyone,   I need to retreive all active SPContentType of a list. My list is configured to NOT allow the creation of "new folder" under the new button.   However, when I call the SPList.ContentTypes property, the SPContentType "New Folder" is always contains in the resulting collection... even if the SPList.EnableFolderCreation is set to false? Q.1. It's normal? Q.2. If yes, how can I differentiate the "New Folder" content type and all the others content type?   Thanks all   Marc          

Client Object Model : Transactional update of list and content types

  
I am using Silverlight client object model to code against Sharepoint. Essentially, what I want is that when a user clicks a button, An item needs to be added to a list and also a new content type has to be created. button1_click() { //1. Create an item in a list. //2.  Create a new content type. } Also this should be transactional:  only if item is added should the content type be added too, otherwise roll back both. (and vice-versa). My understanding of client object model is that we at the core we are talking to Sharepoint WCF services. So if I say, using(TransactionScope scope = new TransactionScope()) { ClientContext.ExecuteQueryAsync(); scope.Complete(); } can I assume that the updation will be transactional??

Inserting a custom list form for a custom content type

  
Hello, When I try to insert a custom list form for a custom content type I created, nothing happens. Same thing is for the content type "message" & "discussion". I already cleaned up my profile (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx) I use MOSS 2007 version 12.0.0.6421 and SP designer 2007 SP2 on Win7. Below you can see an example of the custom content type.     Columns Name Type Status Source Title Single line of text Required Item Segment Lookup Optional   Form Lookup Optional   Main Product Lookup Optional   Weight Number Optional   Price/Kg Currency Optional   Unit Price Currency Optional   Manufacturer Lookup Optional   Packaging Lookup Optional   PL Yes/No Optional   Label Lookup Optional   USP Lookup Optional   POSC Lookup Required   Place Lookup Hidden StoreCheckHeader Country Lookup Hidden StoreCheckHeader SC_Link Single line of text Hidden StoreCheckHeader
