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

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

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?

Unable to Show Edit item Links in Data Form Web Part

  
I have a DFWP connected to custom list and the boxes to Show Edit Item Links, Show Delete item links and Show Insert Item links are grayed out so that they can not be checked. This works fine when I use a DFWP connected to a standard list (i.e., Contacts). Is there something special that needs to be done to activate this functionality?ThanksDean

Unable to view data on list views

  
I have two lists. A List item in one list will be inserted to the other list based on the actions. This is easily achieved on the event receiver by adding the list item to the target list. Though I adds the list item to the target list; i am only able to view those data when i click on "Modify View" and simply click on "OK" button. Basically its a view refresh / commit. Has anyone came across such issue?

Data View Web Part, update to Data Source / adding new list to existing data source

  

Hi all,

I have four Lists with identical columns :

List 1
List 2
List 3
List 4

I had to merge them, hence i created a data source ( Linked Source ) and merged these lists in SPD. I have used a data view webpart to display some columns from the merged lists data source and everything was working fine.

But now i have a new List : List 5 which also has the same columns like the other four lists and i need to update the data soure such that it is merged list of 5 lists not 4.

i updated the datasource property of the linked source to merge this new list as well. However the contents of List 5 dont appear in the data view webpart. 

Am i missing something here ? 

I dont want recreate the data view web part from scratch eachtime , because in future there might be List 6 , List 7 as well ... 


Custom List Form web part connection to data view

  
Hi

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.

or

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 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

Show custom error message inside SharePoint Business Data List web part?

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

Add page numbers for paging in data view web part

  

Hello all,

Has anyone found a solution that will allow me to have page numbers for paging in a data view web part. For instance, if I have 40 items/rows and I set the paging to display 10 items, I'd like the paging to show 1 2 3 4 rather than showing 1-10 and having to click next over and over to get to a specific item.

I found this article, but it is for 2003 and doesn't seem to apply to 2007 or if it does I am not able to really figure out how.

Hi,

I am designing a data form - adding some formatting etc.  I am able to see the webpart correctly in SPD split view, but when I trying to preview it, it gives me the following error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
ANy help would be welcome, I have spent a lot of time on this page and don't want to do it again.  THere are a lot of fields and it's a tedious process to move them to the correct location.  I am at my wits end, I am not sure how to debug this!!
Thanks,

Calculated date field displays differently in List View and Data View web parts

  
In SharePoint GUI I created a simple custom list with a calculated Date/Time field (Due).  The calculation is =[Created]+7.  I'm trying to display this data on a page using a DVWP.  But first, for testing purposes, I also created a second calculated Date/Time (TestCreate) field in my custom list that is simply =[Created]. In the List View from within SharePoint, the dates show as expected (for example): Created = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM Due = 8/19/2010 3:45 PM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM In SharePoint Designer, I added a Data View web part and the above three data elements (each configured to display mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt).  I see the time displayed for the example list item as: Created = 8/12/2010 3:45:30 PM Due = 8/19/2010 10:45:00 AM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 10:45:00 AM I've tested a couple scenarios and the calculated fields always display five hours in the past (along with dropping the seconds).  It seems like the DVWP is returning the date in a different time zone (with no seconds).  The lcid is set right (1033).  I didn't see any time zone settings for the DVWP specifically.  I'm basically stuck.  Could someone help me figure this one out. Thanks.

BCS Data List - Unable to Allow Filtering

  
Hello,   I'm using the BCS Data List to display values from the 'Contoso Inventory List' on the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 demo machine.  I'm unable to allow user filtering of data - the options appear grayed out.  Here's what I did: Dropped a BCS Data List web part on my page Selected my External Content Type Data appeared as expected I then clicked the 'Edit View' link to modify the BCS Data List view The selections under 'Items to Retrieve' are grayed out - with "Retrieve All Items" selected by default.   I had hoped to use 'Retrieve items specified by the user' which in SharePoint 2007 BDC gave the user filtering options.I'm hoping someone can help me understand what I'm doing wrong.     Thanks!   Steven   ps - I get the same behavior with different SharePoint sites and External Content Types, so I don't believe it's a problem with my SharePoint site.

In data view web part - how to display document name with link that opens lookup document rather tha

  
I have a list with a lookup column to create relationships with documents in a separate library. I am creating a data view web part to display each item in the list. One of the fields I want to display is the document field (the lookup column). I want this to be in the form of the related document's name with link to directly open the source document itself (Word, PPT, ...). Now I am only managing to display the document name linked to opening the document's display form of the related document library, and then I have to click the document's name there to open it. Alas one unnecessary click too many. Any wize tips? Henning
