SharePoint Edit Form Shows Field Tabs over Field Item - How Can I Hide These

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I am working with a custom edit form in SharePoint designer and I notice that when the form is displayed it shows the form field title in the column on the left and also in a tab directly above each field in the column on the right.  My question is how do I remove those tabs? IOW I just want to show the form field title on the left and the form field on the right; I don't want those grey tabs above the form field.

Data Form Web Part - Sharepoint Dropdown List as a field in Edit View - Possible?

  

Hi guys,

I'm building a Sharepoint page with a data form web part that uses custom SELECT and UPDATE statements with an SQL Server connection in order to retrieve and store records of information.

I'm getting along fine, records seem to update how they should etc, but I've ran into a problem with one thing: Sharepoint dropdownlists in 'Edit Template'

So the issue is this: if I replace a textbox field with a dropdown list that is populated with a separate SQL datasource, the dropdown list seems to be unable to show the current value of the field.

E.g. I have a dataview which has a field "FruitID", which I can update just fine by setting the ID value to different numbers. The SQL datasource uses the FruitID to display a list of all available Fruits, (e.g. 1 = Banana, 2 = Apple, 3 = Cherry, etc).

If i open the dataview in editmode, the default value in the dropdown is null, despite the real value of the field being "2", which should show "Apple" in the dropdown.

I can select a fruit and click save, and it will update just fine. But the initial display needs to show the correct value to start with.

Is there a custom binding I should be coding to make this work? I can't configure dropdown <items> on an individual level as they are populated from the SQL server. I can't set "SelectedI

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

  
My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Map an InfoPath form field to a SharePoint column

  
I am trying to create a custom SharePoint list template feature (feature.xml, schema.xml, the whole nine yards), which is based on the OOTB XML Form Library in MOSS 2007. I copied the XmlFormLibrary feature out of the FEATURES folder on my SharePoint server, and made a few minor modifications (changed the feature name, new GUID, added some fields in schema.xml, created a new content type for it, etc...).

What I ultimately want to do is publish an InfoPath form template into it as the document template for the library, and I would like to be able to map certain fields in the form template to fields in my custom SharePoint library template. In InfoPath, I open the Publishing Wizard and go through the typical steps to publish to a Document Library. I then choose the columns in my form that I want to promote to fields in the form library, and select the appopriate fields to map to in the form library. I publish the form, and do not get any errors or warnings.

However, when I choose "New" from the form library and fill out the form and save it, only certain fields in the library are actually being populated from the form. Specifically, this seems to work fine for a date/time field I am using, but does not work for the "Location" field. I am using the OOTB "Location" field from the "Core Contact and Calendar Columns" group. Ev

Setting Task Field Values in Custom .aspx Edit Form and accessing through ExtendedProperties

  

Since we're using WSS 3.0 and not MOSS 2007, we have to create and use ASP forms for any custom Workflow Task Edit pages instead of being able to use InfoPath forms (which would be nice...maybe some day we'll step up to MOSS). The custom Workflow Edit Pages are used for custom Task Content Types that we create so that our Workflow Tasks can have additional fields beyond the standard Workflow Task fields. Once you've collected the values for the Task fields from the user on the ASP Workflow Task Edit form, the typical procedure is to create a hashtable and fill the hashtable with key/value pairs that represent the names of your Task fields and their associated values, as such:

// This function is called when the user clicks the Save/Submit button
// on the Custom Task Edit ASP form
public void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
  // Create a hashtable that will be used to update the values of task fields
  Hashtable taskHash = new Hashtable();
  // For each field, create two values in the hashtable. If the field name 
  // matches a field in the Task content type, the field name will not be 
  // searchable as a key within the ExtendedProperties hashtable. So 
  // create a second field that is a duplicate of the first but having a 
  // name that doesn't exactly match an existing field in the Task 
  // content type. That way it will be a searchable ke

Field shows as when using SSIS and sharepoint adapter

  

Hello, I am setting up an SSIS usingthe Sharepoint Source adapter. I am replacing and existing process that imports data from Sharepoint into Excel directly, but this is manual.  The sharepoint source adapter seems to truncate column names or provides different column names then what is visible on the user Sharepoin site - they all do not match my manual import into Excel and there are additional fields.  I'd assume that what it is returning is the actual Sharepoint Database column name.  Anyway, I need to map my fields to my existing process in SQL.  The only way I know how to do this and identify what columns are being returned, I am attempting to import the data into Excel using SSIS through the Excel Destination.  I'm having an issue with a few fileds....I have a field/column called QAReviews which is importing into Excel with all the fields for each record showing <Lon Text> instead of the value the Sharepoint site actually contains.  In my manual Excel import process, this field shows the correct data.  By the way, on sharepoint this is a choice field. Can someone tell me why I'm getting something different through SSIS then what I get from using the manual import in Excel.  I also exported the data from Sharepoint to Access and again I get the correct data. Please advise.

 

Thanks

How to send an email to Supervisor (field in the form) after New Item in a list is created?

  

I have user who creates a record and User's Supervisor, who need to get notification about new record (different Users have different Supervisors and they input them manually into field when create a new record).

(Users I've mentioned are domain users with emails assigned to them and we use Outlook that is integrated with our sharepoint)

 

1) I've tried to create a workflow in Sharepoint Designed (as described here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sharepointdevelopment/thread/2A525E2F-2407-42C9-AB9D-B5FB609B34B5) , but there I can choose only concrete email address (I need it to be populated from the field on the form).

I think the workflow can be configured somehow to send an email to user from a field, but I don't know how. 

 

2) I've created a new view with filters by Supervisor and configured Alerts for the view, but it is too complicated for all Supervisors to do that. (just not the best solution)

 

any ideas? 


InfoPath Calculated Field doesn't Post to SharePoint List when form is submitted

  

I have a nice InfoPath form that includes a calculated total field.  That works great.   The form is published to a SharePoint list and when users of the form Submit the form to the list the form information neatly populates to the list.   Well, all of the fields populate to the list except for the calculated total field, that one is just blank.  Naturally, I've noodled around to figure out why and therefore I'm here now asking for guidance.   What should I be focusing on to resolve this issue?

Thanks
