Solution to controlling the Redirect URL after saving content in a Data Form View Control



I have customized a Page Layout to include a custom Data Form View Web Part that will allow users to enter comments on a news story page in a publishing site.


I was having a difficult time because when I clicked the button to save the data to the list, everything saved correctly, but the control was redirecting me to the AllItems.aspx page of the list.  This wasn't the desired behavior since the end user would prefer to see that their comment was posted on the news story page and wouldn't know what the AllItems.aspx page was for.


The save button that was created in the XSL seciton of the web part was:


<SharePoint: SaveButton runat="server" ControlMode="New" id="savebutton1" />


Microsoft has documented a RedirectUrl property on this button that I figured could change what page was loaded after the user saved the form data.  However, try as I might I could not get it to work.


Some more searching lead me to this article:


Infopath Form template when used not promoting data to a library view




Have a really strange issue here that I can't figure out and wondered if any of you have had this issue?

Basically we have 5 libraries and the infopath form moves between them and there is consistent promoted fields in all the libraries.

We have 4 forms per lib with all the same properties promoted.

But one of the forms does not seem to show it data in the table view (you can see it in edit form (SP Page)???) for lib 4 (it shows in all the others).


I can't determine why this is occuring and what I need to do to fix it.

Custom List Form web part connection to data view


We have a sharpoint site to manage "projects".    That site includes a document library.  The documents uploaded to the library are categorised based on the project they belong to.

We are trying to implement a custom list form for editing a project record that does one of the following:

1. When the edit form is loaded for a particular projects record that edit form also shows a list of relevant documents.


2. Include a button or link on the edit form to another page that lists only the documents for the current project.

We thought this would be easy to do using web part connections.  If we click on the custom list form it gives us the option to setup a web part connection.  However, if you follow this wizard through and get to the stage of selecting columns to link, there are no columns listed for either the custom list form or for the target dataview.  This is the case whether the target data view is on the same page, ie in case of option 1 or on a different page as in case of option 2.

Could someone advise us how we could either get the web part connections between the custom list form and other dataviews to work or how we could hyperlink to a dataview and pass the id of the record currently being edited to that dataview as a filter?

We are using Sharepoint Designer so would appreciate any suggestions base

Data View: Cannot insert new item form


Hello there,


I'm wrestling with the problem of creating a website form by which it should be possible to submit data to a sharepoint list.

I have gone to the root of my site collection where I have created a new custom list, added all the custom columns I would like and added some dummy content (two rows). 

Now I want create a form in which my frontend users (anonymous) can create new rows to the list. It's a conference registration list where the customers should be able to register for the next conference.

I would like full control over the layout of the form and integrate it seamlessly with the rest of my site design.

Guided by this video I have tried to create a such form: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHtzKsOwqqQ&feature=related

The problem is this: when I have inserted the data view into the webpart zone, chosen my prefered list and chosen the fields I would like to be contained by the form and press the "insert selected fields as... " button the possibility of "new item form" is not available. Why is that so? This seems to be the right thing to do.

Problems with the permissions? I have set anonymous users to be able to create new list items for the relevant list. 

Note: When I proceed the same way in the list-folder and for example open the "newForm.as

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

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view


Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png
