Sharepoint designer - Create alternative edit form

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

I have a problem with creating a new edit page on an existing list. This list has lots of attributes (>50) and has some 800 rows of content.

I can open het site, create a new page from the existing update page, delete the web part. So far so good. But when I try to add a custom list form with my list and content type selected, I get a time out (Error Code 1460: Timeout Background: xxx).

What can I do about this ? I've tried it several times, but without succes. I tried it at the customer site using the VPN, I even went on site, but it just did not work :-(

Regards, thanks,

Marc Nemegeer

Using SharePoint designer to create a new infopath form

  

Hi,

I've got an infopath formula that should trigger off the creation of a second infpath formula populated with some of the fields from the orgininal form via a SharePoint Designer workflow.  I set the correct content type and everythinf is ok - except that the form created via the workflow has an xsn extension and not an xml extension and therefore opens in the infopath client and not IE.

I knew about this problem with SPD 2007, and the workaround to put an empty xml version of the form as a content type - but can anyone confirm that this is still necessary in 2010 ?

Thanks for your help

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

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

Access Denied while using Sharepoint designer 2007 to create a work flow

  
I am using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to create a work flow that sends emails to different people in a group depending on status of a record. For example, when some one reports a problem, an email is posted to concerned person and as soon as he/she checks the problem and updates the status an email is sent to next department and so on. Starting the work flow creation wizard is no problem but as soon as I press 'Finish' to create workflow I get 'Access Denied' message box. Any Ideas? I am using WSS 3.0 on 2003 Server.

Sharepoint Designer 2007 Variable Data on a form

  
I am a lifetime COBOL programmer trying to make a new career in a Sharepoint world. I am working on a project where I have created a list of Employees.  Almost all of the employees on the list must update their status on a day-to-day basis. A view was created on this list using [ME] as the search criteria to only return the employee who is updating his own info. With Sharepoint Designer 2007 I created a custom form. I cut and pasted the code for the view that I described above and then created a series of buttons to allow the employee to choose a status. For each button, I built a workflow to do the specific updates to the employee's list line. I was able to set up an onclick event for each button to execute a Javascript function that would go to the webpage and start the workflow.  I got the actual workflow URLs from the Sharepoint Intranet webpage after I completed each one. Here is my problem (and it is probably my inexperience that has got me stumped); The URL that is fed to the Javascript function has a hard-coded number representing the ID field of the Employee list (that is what probably sets the "Current Item" in the workflow.  I can see that the listview from above the buttons has the ID field as one of its Fieldrefs.  How can I substitute some kind of ID variable in the set of parameters that is fed to the Javascript? 

alternative to publishing pages that are editable in sharepoint designer?

  
when i create a publishing page, i can only edit the page in the browser.  it's not possible to edit publishing pages in sharepoint designer.  i want to be able to edit my pages in sharepoint designer.  so, i'm using web part pages.   now, i want to change the way the title of the page is generated for my pages.  the template i'm using has this:   <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server"> <SharePoint:ListItemProperty Property="BaseName" maxlength="40" runat="server"/> </asp:Content>   i want to change that.  i can change it in each web part page individually in advanced mode.  i can also change the template so that new pages are generated with my customizations.  but i haven't found any way to automatically apply my customizations to all of my existing web part pages. the page layout feature of publishing pages would allow me to do this.  but then, i wouldn't be able to edit my pages in SD.  is there any way to be able to edit pages in SD, and still be able to apply customizations to all of my existing pages in one shot?

create a custom "newform.aspx" for document library using sharepoint designer and web services

  

Hi All,

I need to change the look and feel of "NewForm.aspx" for my Sharepoint 2007 Document Library. But the constraints are

1. I cant use C# coding. No Visual Studio.

2. Not allowed change anything in the farm level. e.g. cant install features/webparts fo this.

3. Can only use JavaScript, JQuerry and Sharepoint Designer 2007.

I came across some suggestions that we can create a custom page in Javascript/JQuery. Which will take all input data and insert new items in list/doc library using some XML services.

Please help me, I dont know if this is really possible. Let me know if any alternative is possible.
