Create "add new item" link to open in dialog

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Rather than use the default "Add new item" link for a list I'd like to create my own link at the top of my page or from the quicklaunch. The issue I'm seeing is then when I copy the link from the system created link and then paste it into a custom link is that it opens in a new page rather than in a dialog.

Can someone help me out on this? Thanks very much.

Open custom aspx page as modal dialog from link


Here's what I'm trying to achieve. I got a url field in my list which contains a link to a custom aspx page I've created earlier. I've added the "&IsDlg=1" property to my url and I want to page to be opened as a modal dialog. However the page opens full window and not as a dialog at all.

Do I have to create a custom field? I've seen how to open a modal dialog with javascript, but my url field only accepts http://xxx aso so I'm screwed. Any help is very much appreciated.

Add new item link to create a no-default content type item


I have a contacts list in which there is a company and person content type. The default content type is person, given they will be the most commonly created item. However, I want to create a link on a different page that links to create a company. The link created correctly launches the company contact form, but for some reason creates the contact as a person contact (i.e. the default) instead of a company content type.

My link is: https://MyServer/MySite/Lists/MyList/NewCompanyContact.aspx?List=0b73f0cb%2Deb48%2D4a25%2Da817%2Dc89f930e19a5&RootFolder=%2FBusinessDevelopment%2FLists%2FContacts&ContentTypeId=0x01007B29F47C6BF470468E8EA02DD8570DFF001DA7CBDD0D967F498114C805487BEA38&IsDlg=1 

Am I missing something?

Cutting Edge: Customize Your Open File Dialog


Displaying an Open File dialog is certainly easy in the Microsoft® . NET Framework with Windows® Forms, but the resulting window is not as customizable as when you create it through the Win32® API. With Windows 2000, Microsoft added a nice feature-the places bar, which is the vertical toolbar that appears on the left side of the window to let you select a frequently visited folder.

Window.Open in AJAX Accordian Panel Opens Link in Same Window

I'm using the following span to open a page in a new window. What is INCREDIBLY odd is that it is exactly the same code from three different pages, but the first refuses to open in a new window. The only difference is that the first example resides within an Ajax Accordian Panel so I suspect that it might be an Ajax related issue. Ideas? Does not open in new window.<span onclick="window.open ('http://[domainname]/Mercury/production/content/directory/DirectorySideBar.aspx','mywindow','width=271,height=498,scrollbars=no');">   Opens in new window<span onclick="window.open ('http://[domainname]/Mercury/production/content/directory/DirectorySideBar.aspx','mywindow','width=271,height=498,scrollbars=no');">   Opens in new window<span onclick="window.open ('http://[domainname]/Mercury/production/content/directory/DirectorySideBar.aspx','mywindow','width=271,height=498,scrollbars=no');">

How to create a wpf-dialog window with constant height?

Good afternoon. I need to create a dialog wpf-window with the constant height. One can see a window height in wpf-editor, and set this value to MinHeight and MaxHeight properties.

What's the bug? Tell me please, how to make a dialog wpf-window with the constant height?

Forcing Sharepoint to open a link with Word emulator


When you open a MS Word document from a document library, it opens it with what I call it's Word emulator (as opposed to a regular web-browser window).  However, if you hyperlink directly to that same document, Sharepoint opens it with a web-browser.

Is there a way to write the hyperlink to force Sharepoint to open it with the Word emulator?  (The hyperlink is going to be from the homepage of the Sharepoint site).
