PreSaveAction is not firing for a custom save button on a Custom List Form

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi Everybody,
I've created a custom list form using SPD. Now I want to put a custom button for saving and redirecting to another page based on a logic. I am using following script for making a custom Save button.

<input type="button" value="Submit" name="Submit" onclick="{ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit;__redirect={Confirm.aspx}')}  " />
When the user clicks this button, I am able to save the values, but the validation I have implemented in the PreSaveAction() is not getting activated. I don't understand where the problem is.

Is validation with PreSaveAction()  works only with OOB SaveButton ?

Thanks in advance,

BDC field cannot save on Custom List Form


I'm having a problem with a Sharepoint Business Data Catalog, I have a List which are connected by BDC to a SQL field/table, and with standard sharepoint Forms it all works fine, I can lookup data in BDC and it saves correctly.

However, I need to create a Custom List Form for New Items on this list, and whenever I do this - the BDC works for lookup, but it doesnt save the data in the List when the item is created ?
(All normal fields save, but the BDC field is just empty on the new Item)

Anyone got any bright ideas? Cause I'm running out.

Adding a custom form to List's FormCollection in code

Hello, In a site within a site collection, using SharePoint Designer 2010 we have created custom Display, Edit and View forms and assigned them to the Item content type of a custom list as it's default forms. When looking at the Forms property of the list, I can see all six forms listed: the three original forms (DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx, NewForm.aspx) and the three custom forms (displayifs.aspx, editifs.aspx, newifs.aspx). Each site in the site collection has this custom list and I want to add these three custom forms to the custom list in each site in the collection as the default forms for items. In code I have tried copying the files from the Item subfolder of the first custom list to the Item subfolder in each list in each site, and then setting the properties for the Item content type's default forms to point to these new files (e.g DisplayFormUrl = "~list/Item/displayifs.aspx"; EditFormUrl = "~list/Item/editifs.aspx"; NewFormUrl = "~list/Item/newifs.aspx";) and I have also copied the fourth file template.asxn to this folder in each list. However, I have not found how to add these new files to the Forms property of the list iteself, as this property is read-only. It still only contains the three default forms. Is this possible to do in code? When I try to open the Display form or Edit form in

List Event Receivers firing for all custom lists

Hello, I have a site with two custom lists, and I have created an EventReceiver class to handle the ItemAdded event for custom lists. I have modified the EventReceiver's Elements.xml file to only handle items added to one of the custom lists instead of all custom lists, by changing: <Receivers ListTemplateId="100"> to <Receivers ListUrl="/Lists/MyCustomList">   however, when debugging, the ItemAdded method is being fired when an item is added in both custom lists. I have had to work around this by checking within the ItemAdded method for the list that fired the event:        public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)        {            base.ItemAdded(properties);            if (properties.ListTitle.Equals("My Custom List")) { ... } I thought the ListUrl attribute of the Receivers element specifies the event to only fire for the specific list with that url? (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms431081.aspx). Is there somewhere else I should be checking?   Thanks

Add a New Item to a Custom Sharepoint List and Sharepoint Calendar from one Infopath form.


I am trying to create an infopath form for requesting time off.  Once the request is approved I want the form to add the event to a calendar on sharepoint.  I was able to do this using the article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-item-sharepoint-calendar-infopath.htm.  But I want the form to also add an item to a custom list that has the employees available time off stored on it.  That way the form can automatically subtract the time entered on the infopath form from what is available on the custom list.  I was able to do this using another article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at  http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-rich-text-item-sharepoint-list-infopath.htm.  I can make both of these functions happen seperately but I need them to happen on the same Infopath form.  I am using Infopath and MOSS 2007.  I have tried to use 2 CAML receive data files and I treid to co

Save button on custom EditForm.aspx locks record



I am having an issue with my EditForm.aspx on a list. My problem is that when I make a change to a record and click save (and it brings me back to the page), the first set of changes are saved fine but if I then enter more content and click save without refreshing the page I get the error:

 Save Conflict.

Your changes conflict with those made concurrently by another user. If you want your changes to be applied, click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and resubmit your changes.


This is the code that I am using for my save button:

<input type="button" value="Save Changes" name="btnFormAction" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit')}" style="padding: 5px; border-style: none; background-color: #21374c; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; font-size: 14px;" />

 Is there something I need to add to my code that unlocks the record once it has been saved?

Thanks in advance for the help :)


Sharepoint Custom List Form

In modifying my New and Edit forms for a Sharepoint list, I open in Sharepoint designer and delete the default List Form web part and then insert Custom List form. On every occasion I seem to be limited to 12 fields to this form. Is there any way to get aditional fileds from the list into this control?

Creating a Custom List Definition that uses InfoPath Form



I have created a custom list definition in Visual Studio 2010.  By default it is using the out of the box "pages\form.aspx" for the New/Edit/Display form rendering. 

I am just wondering if it is possible to use an InfoPath form as default for the New/Edit/Display form?

I have tried to create a custom list with custom info path form thru the UI, and export the site as WSP.  I have analysed the files and notice a few things:

1.) I need to add a XmlDocument section in the Schema.xml for displayifs/editifs/newifs.aspx

2.) I need to provision the xsn in "Lists/{List Name}/Item"

3.) I need to provision the *ifs.aspx in "Lists/{List Name}/Item"

As you see, some of the settings required the {List Name}.  That's mean I can't really create a list definition that is reusable because I need to know the List Name before hand. Is there any way to specify the path with some kind of variable instead of static list name?

Furthermore, I notice that the "Developer" tab is missing from the Ribbon when I modify form, hence I can do any code behind.  Is this a limitation, or is there a workaround?
