Firstly, we are using sharepoint foundation so Infopath forms are not an option for us.
We have a Visual Studio sharepoint project which deploys a complete sharepoint site. The site contains a number of external lists and we want to be able to create customised view/edit forms for these lists and add them to our Visual Studio project so they
can be deployed as part of the new site. The idea is that we can deploy the solution to a fresh site with a default set of forms which can then be customised for different implementations of the site.
Here's the steps we have been using to try and do this:
1. Deploy the base project (BDC) to the sharepoint site
2. Create external lists based on the BDC content types
3. Use Sharepoint Designer to create new edit/view forms for the lists and set these as the default forms for the list
3. Save the site as a template
4. Import the template into a new Visual Studio project and select the lists we require. This gives us a List Definition, a pages module (with element file), an elements file and a schema file (both for the List Instance).
5. We then add the contents of the imported project to our main solution as follows:
I would like to create a .NET interface to Create and Maintain Custom Lists in SSAS Cubes. Would anyone know if there are any source code projects going in this direction?? If not, some direction on how to accomplish this? Anyone have existing
code/samples to.. Ex. Create lists from MDX scripts wrapped in Stored procedures
Any help would be greatly appreciated
I've done this so many times with no problems so i'm unsure what might be causing it this time. I'm simply taking a SharePoint "Team Site" template with a few added web parts and saving this site template so I can use it over again throughout
my SharePoint sites. The .stp does show up in the Site Template Gallery, but for some reason the site template is not shown in Sites and Workspaces to select.
I made sure that all version numbers match by checking the verions via Central Administration -> Operations -> Servers in Farm
I'm on version 188.8.131.5224
Any ideas on something i'm missing? In the past all I had to do was save site as template, and than boom! it would show up in Sites and Workspaces.
Any suggestions on what I might be missing would be of much help.
Hi, i have over 100 items all loaded in a dropdown list. They all are assigned a value between 1-10 which represent 10 categories.
When certain buttons are clicked, i want the dropdown list to display only items with a value "1" or "2", etc.
How can this be done?
Wondering if any one else seen this, I noticed custom ribbon buttons don't show up when I select item in document library in webpart view. Site is created using team site template and the webpart that shows contents of a document library is inside of a wiki
editing control in team site home page
Button shows up correctly when I select the item once in document library view
We are in the process of upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010. Our business users have noticed a new option of creating a new "External List" under the Custom Lists heading. Is there any way to remove the External List option without
having to customize the create.aspx page?
Hi everyone, I've come here as a last resort before I find a revolver and a barn. I've struggled with this problem for weeks, even though it should in theory be a ridiciously simple thing.
My problem is that I have build a eventreceiver in VS2010 which for some reason is triggered on more lists than I specify. When I modifiy a list, the itemadding/added/updated/deleted-event is triggered for all the lists in the site. I don't have a clue why
this happens, and I will provide code below. I have looked into the possibility that older versions/eventreceivers have been in action, hence I've deactivated all solutions and all, but a couple of integrated features. I've also started a new project in VS
several times, and copied only the code over to the new project.
Obviously I've removed the ListTemplateId from the Receivers in the Elements.xml file. I should mention though, that my eventreceivers were still called even if I didn't assign them to any list in elements.xml, or if I specified ListUrl="myList" for example.
The result is that the itemadding/added/updated/deleted-event is triggered for all the lists in the site.
My elements.xml file is as below:
