Modifying the choices in the "Choice column"

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


I have a "Choice column", with five possible choices. My problem is, that when I create a new item in a list, I should only be able to choose 3 of the 5 possible choices. Only when I edit an item should I be able to choose from all five choices. Is this possible to implement?

Best regards

Is it possible to populate property choices from a database?


I'm creating my first server control, and have it working where I can set up an enum and the user can set a property's choices,  based off of that enum.  But I'd like it to pull records from a database and populate the list of choices for the property from a database.  This would allow me to add a new "Host System" to the database, and the other designers wouldn't have to get a new copy of the dll.

rendering today's date through DVWP and modifying the XSLT

I need the Current date or Today to do some simple calculations(calculated columns) such as this: =IF(AND([Due Date]< [today], [today] < ”[Due Date]”),”Red”, “Green”) Question is: To can I convert the above formula so that it works in XSL modifying the XSLT. I new at this and not sure about the syntax. Can anyone help? I am thinking it would be something like this: <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="ddwrt:Today() &gt; @DueDate"> <xsl:text>Red</xsl:text> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:text>Green</xsl:text> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose> Obviously something is wrong with the code above...i don't get anything in return.   Thanks Cnothing for members to see

Custom List Row association to multiple documents - Design choices?

I want to associate custom list entries to muliple documents. Thinking about options.   1 row will have many docs, but one doc will only have one row. Possible? Trying to keep it simple with minimal development. I was thinking I could have a unique column or the id column in the list act like a key (somehow).. and  add a required column to the document list requiring it to tie back to the list entry.  Then a view could drive listing all the docs for a particular row from a link in the list built in a custom dataview. All the docs could be in the same library. Is the the best approach? Ideas/suggestions? Thanks.

WSE 3.0 - Modifying the Security element

Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can help.  I'm building a SOAP client application that passed messages to a sever outside of my control.  Using WSE 3.0 and VS 2005 I'm able to generate the SOAP envelope correctly except for 1 of the server's requirements.  The specification requires that I place a specific element inside the wsse:Security element of the SOAP header.  The end result should look something like this: <wsse:Security><customnode></customnode>[other security info]</Security>. I've tried to do this with custom policies / appending a XML element to the Security node. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John.

Modifying Customizing EditForm.aspx of Doc lib breaks Upload function - Unknown Error

Part of a bigger design issue really. But does anybody know why customizing EditForm.aspx of a Doc lib breaks the Upload function? and how to fix it so it does not. My version of the editform works great, but after an upload I get Unknown Error the resulting url looks like this: https://xxxxx.edu/sites/xxxx/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List=%7b0404432B-91A3-4E18-9202-5954E3A7E0D2%7d&RootFolder=%2fsites%2fmcpharm%2ftest3&Source=https%3a%2f%2fxxxxx.edu%2fsites%2fmcpharm%2ftest3%2fForms%2fAllItems.aspx --- The bigger design issue - disregard if you like: That said, the bigger design issue is we are trying to relate one list row to many documents, but don't want to seperate the docs into seperate folders and would like the solutoin to be seamless. We are going to add a look up from the doc lib to the list, but did not want to use anythng but the List's ID column. However, we do not want users to have to manually look up List row IDs in that form, and we did not want to use a list column that can be edited, even if we can add a unique column policy. My design and thinking is to build a few custom pages with dataviews to show row level details in both lists (1 to many) and a dataview to drive list level functions like edit, delete and upload docs. I think all the pieces are there except for the less than graceful upload function that fist uploads the file and then asks the

Error when modifying permissions on Itemadded for a file upload

All, I have registered an eventhandler for a document library. On ItemAdded, I want to modify the permissions of the item such that only the uploader(creator) should have access to the file he is uploading. When I upload a file and fill in the required metadata and click on Save, I get the error"The file SubmissionForReview_Draft/Untitled.htm has been modified by SHAREPOINT\system " . But, I did verify the event fired and all appropriate permissions are set. The only explanation for this could be, the file gets uploaded, the event fired and the properties of the file has changed and then the form to add additional metadata has poped up. On clicking on save, SharePoint determines that the file for which the metadata has to be added has changed internally and throws error, which may be as expected. Question: Is there a way around this issue, maybe to suppress check on file changed ?   Thanks mano Mano Mangaldas | Blog : http://howtosharepoint.blogspot.com
