Is it possible to show the displaying name instead of value in list?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,I just created a custom field type to show all the users of the site.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace WSS.CustomContentFields
{
  public class UserFieldControl : BaseFieldControl
  {
    protected DropDownList ddlUsers;
    protected override string DefaultTemplateName
    {
      get
      {
        return "UserFieldWebControl";
      }
    }
    public override object Value
    {
      get
      {
        EnsureChildControls();
        return this.ddlUsers.SelectedValue;
      }
      set
      {
        EnsureChildControls();
        this.ddlUsers.SelectedValue = (string)this.ItemFieldValue;
        
      }
    }
    

    protected override void CreateChildControls()
    {
      if (this.Field == null || this.ControlMode == SPControlMode.Display)
        return;
      base.CreateChildControls();
      this.ddlUsers = (DropDownList)TemplateContainer.FindControl("ddlUsers");
      if (ddlUsers == null)
        throw new Exception("Error: cannot load .ascs file");
      if (!Page.IsPostBack)
      {
        SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite(SPContext.GetContext(System.Web.HttpContext.Current).Site.Url);
        SPWeb site = siteCollection.OpenWeb()

Page layout list not displaying in page settings

  

Hi

I have 4 different custom page layouts in my publishing site at the site collection level. I have one site named "Services" in site collection. When i create page, i select one page layout from above 4. But when i go to the page settings of that page to change the page layout of it, i can see only one page layout which this page based on.

Problem is why all the page layouts not listing there? I checked "Page layout and site templates" settings from look and feel of Site Settings, this r set to "Pages in this site can use any layout".

Please help..!

Thanks in advance.

DVWP not displaying a column as per the original list

  

I have a data view web part which displays a list column that allows multiple items to be selected from another list.  So in this column (in the actual list), the content in a particular cell is as follows:

6698; 1211; 3342; 1231; 1231

However, when I insert this field into the DVWP, the content above ends up losing all the spaces and so looks like this:

6698;1211;3342;1231;1231

I am not sure why this is happening, and plus some of the entries in this column are made up of a very long string of numbers.  Even if I control the width of the column, this long list only ever gets displayed on one line (i.e. width restriction is ignored), therefore my page is being displayed very wide.  I think this is happening because of the lack of spaces in the string, but am not sure.

Does anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks for taking time to read.

problem with displaying items in list view web part

  
I have a list view webpart at default display form. Default Display form display items (for example) from the contracts documents library. List view webpart also associated with the same documents library (contracts). In such case this webpart doesn't display any item. But if I add another list view web part associated with warrants document library it display item without any problems. Is it possible to bind list view webpart to another data source for contracts document library? Or maybe another solution? Thanks!

Show value from Lookup List inside a view

  
I've got a Categories list, a Product list with a Category field defined as lookup value. The Product list is used in an OrderLine List. How can i show the category value from the selected Product in the OrderLine view? I tried calculcated columns, but they don't work on lookup columns. Would this be possible by creating a custom FieldType? (without performance problems, i assume there's a reason why calculated values don't work on lookup columns) Thanks Marco

Basic List Definition steps - cannot get columns to show up in New, Edit, etc.

  

Can someplease explain (since the MSDN docs don't) all the necessary stuff required to make a custom List Definition?  I'm trying to make a List Definition and in the schema.xml I've added some custom columns, as well as existing site columns, and I cannot get anything but the default items (from VS creation itself), like Title, to show up.  Some things I've tried:

1 - Yes, "ShowInNewForm", "ShowInEditForm", and "ShowInDisplayForm" are all set to True

2 - I've tried making an inline Content Type for these new columns (i.e., not a new ContentType element, just inside the Schemal.xml file)

I cannot ever get the custom columns to ever appear on anything other than a View.  Also, how the heck do you hide/get rid of the Title column if you don't need that?

data view web part unable to show data from list in subsite

  

Hello all,

In 2007, I never had any issues with doing this. In 2010, I created a web part that looks at the Pages list and pulls a few columns and as long as I am within the site, it works fine. But I need to call information from the Pages list in a subsite and display that information on the parent site default page.

In 2007, I made this work by changing ListID to ListName and DefaultValue="Pages" and then change the WebURL to DefaultValue="/SubsiteName/" then place it anywhere and it found it. Now if I change the ListID to ListName and default value to Pages I get an error that the web part cannot be imported. if I try using the actual ListID and change the WebURL to the subsite, I get an error that the web part is looking for a list that does not exist. This worked so easily in 2007.

Any one able to tell me what's going on? Or have a solution?


Metadata properties set in list item, but don't show up in the DIP.

  

Hi folks,

I'm creating a document programmatically on the server side and using SPFileCollection.Add(...) to create it using the binary contents and a hashtable of the metadata properties.

This works great in SharePoint.  The SharePoint list item picks up the metadata properties and a new document item is created in the library with the proper metadata for all of the fields.  If I view the properties or go to edit the properties in SharePoint, all of the metadata is correct.

However, when I open the document in Word, it seems that none of the managed metadata fields (taxonomy field types) "stick".  The values are only for the managed metadata fields.

In SharePoint, if I change any of the fields and do a save on the list item and then open the document, the taxonomy fields "stick" when I open the document again.

I've opened up the document to view the XML and it seems that the custom properties XML doesn't change from pre-update to post-update.

I've also tried calling SPListItem.SystemUpdate(...) and SPFile.Update(), but this has yielded no results so far. 

So in summary:

  • All fields except for managed metadata fields "stick"
  • All fields show up fine in SharePoint in view and edit mode
  • Managed metadata fields are blank when Word document is open
