Remove Column from List Content Type

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hi,

I have a list that inherits from 2 site content type.  When I added the "site content types" to my list it created a "copy" of it in my "List Content Type". 

Then I created a new column directly into my list, and at the bottom of the column creation screen there is a checkbox saying "Add to all content types" that was checked by mistake (I dont want the List Content types to have the column).

Now, is there a way I can remove those columns from the "List Content Type"? 

I saw that I can delete the "List content type" and re-link to the "Site content type", but I would need to delete all of my items before doing that, and I want to avoid that.

Thanks

Daniel

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.

using [content type] in calculated column

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?

Insert Image column in External content type

Set a Calculated column as hidden in a content type

  
Hello, I'm building a custom list with several columns, including a Calculated column. This calculated column simply takes the value of a choice column in the same list to convert this value to a single line of text value. I do this because when adding a lookup column to this list, I cannot select Choice columns as additional columns, but I can add the calculated column. Speaks for itself that this calculated column only needs to exist in the background, and end users should not see this column in the Add/Edit/Display forms. In add/edit forms the column is not displayed, but in the display form it gets displayed. Piece of cake I thought, I'll just set it as hidden in the content type used for the list. When I open the column the column settings (required/optional/hidden) is grayed out, so I cannot set it to hidden. In SP2007 this was possible, why can't I do this anymore in SP2010? Do I miss some feature in order to do this, or is there a good reason why this seems to have changed in SP2010?

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

Retreive content type of a list programmatically

  
Hi everyone,   I need to retreive all active SPContentType of a list.

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

Is there any way to populate an InfoPath form field with the data from the site content type column?

  

I have a Form library with a form template.

The templat has a field "Office name" which should not be a fixed list of values, but a dynamical list, feeded from a different type of form. I'm a novice with InfoPath - Sharepoint and I want to find out, how can I can give users a possibility to create and maintain a list of offices and also have this list as a selection list inside main library form - ALL inside one library, if possible.

I assumed that if I publish main form (Itinerary) as a library template form and lookup form (OfficeInfo) as a SiteContent, I should be able somehow to connect to siteContent column and it's information. But I cannot see how - Site Content Gallery is not appering as a Connection item.

Can I use SiteConenct for this purpose or there are other ways to create end-user lookup lists?

Thank you!

 


BCS Method Security / External Content Type Permissions / Custom List Security Provider / Security T

  

I have an external list setup with the usual CRUD methods.  The external SQL table is also being populated by another source.  I want to enable/disable deleting depending on whether the record was created from SharePoint.  I would also like the normal list permissions to work.  So if a user has permissions to delete on the list, they can only delete items created for SharePoint. 

Where should this logic be incorporated?  On the BCS Delete method, somewhere in the External Content Type or on the list instance?  Most examples I find relate to security trimming for search.  I'm only concerned about the delete method.

I'm sure there are multiple ways to accomplish this.  Which is the best?

Thanks,
Ryan


Custom Action for specific External Content Type List

  

I have an External Content Type list instance feature in Visual Studio. Deploying the instance works fine. However, I can't create a custom action using RegistrationId="{$ListId:Lists/yourlistname;}" RegistrationType="List"

Even if I specify the list Id as follows RegistrationId="{8F595340-5D08-4287-8BF6-30D50989D2F4}" or RegistrationId="8F595340-5D08-4287-8BF6-30D50989D2F4" I get nothing.

However, RegistrationId="600" works fine, but for all External Content Type lists.

I added the custom action with SharePoint Designer and it works as expected. When I generate a site template and import it into Visual Studio, the custom action uses RegistrationId="{$ListId:Lists/yourlistname;}" RegistrationType="List"

Creating a new site based on the site template creates the custom action correctly. However, deploying just the custom action does not work (feature deploys, but no custom action appears). I also tried RegistrationId="0x0100D67E541CC4BB6A4A9D62D22657ECFF68" RegistrationType="ContentType" with no luck. The content type id was pulled from the list instance using the object model.

I have to tie the custom action to a specific list instance. Because the li
