How do you change the width of a multiple line of text box on a custom list form?

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

 

I have a custom list that has been added using SharePoint Designer to a web part page as a custom list form (Insert - SharePoint controls.)

The list has many single lines of text and one multiple line of text.

The multiple line of text is too wide - I need to make it narrower but how?

Anyone?

Thanks!

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

  
My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Custom List Row association to multiple documents - Design choices?

  
I want to associate custom list entries to muliple documents. Thinking about options.   1 row will have many docs, but one doc will only have one row. Possible? Trying to keep it simple with minimal development. I was thinking I could have a unique column or the id column in the list act like a key (somehow).. and  add a required column to the document list requiring it to tie back to the list entry.  Then a view could drive listing all the docs for a particular row from a link in the list built in a custom dataview. All the docs could be in the same library. Is the the best approach? Ideas/suggestions? Thanks.

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

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

Infopath browser form - odd behaviour on auto expanding multi line text boxes

  

Hi,

 

I have a browser form with a multi line text box. The height is set to be AUTO. Within the client all is fine. When opened as an administrator approved form the text box automatically adds a new line for every 20 characters you type.

 

So if you type 40 characters without pressing enter you get 2 blank lines appear under you text that you CANNOT remove.

 

I have tested this on a new form with various multi line text boxes. The width setting is unimportant, the spell check setting is unimportant.

 

If i fix the height then the issue goes away but this is not any good.

 

I cannot use rich text boxes as i have around 40 text boxes on the form and if they are rich text they take around 10 minutes to load in the browser (this is another issue i have)

 

Thanks in advance

Seven entries per change in daily alert on a custom list

  

I have an alert on a custom list with "All changes", "Any changes" and "Send a daily summary" set.  In the daily email, each change entry is repeated 7 times.  I only have one active alert (if I had multiple, I'd likely get 7 email messages, not one with duplicate entries).

The version number of the item is consistent with only one change being made.  The SharePoint version is reported as 12.0.0.6341.  I don't have admin or physical access to this installation and can not see if there are any unusual features installed.

Change form width ???

  

With this code I can change the width of a panel til the width of the form - the useable part of the form !

  public partial class Form1 : Form
  {
    public Form1()
    {
      InitializeComponent();
    }

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
      Panel aPanel = new Panel();
      aPanel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle;
      aPanel.Width = ClientSize.Width;
      aPanel.Height=50;
      this.Controls.Add(aPanel);
    }
  }

How can I do it the other way around = set the form width to the width of a panel ?

It seems like the ClientSize.Width is READ ONLY !

I can use

this.Width = aPanel.Width + 8;

but what is this spooky 8 ????

Adding Multiple hyperlinks to form connected to SharePoint 2010 list

  

I have a SharePoint 2010 list and am using an InfoPath 2010 form to create items. I am trying to allow users to reference other list items by inserting a hyperlink to other items in the same list. I have created a column in the list containing each items URL. I then created a drop down list in the InfoPath form that queries this column, so that it contains all the items URL’s. I also created a button and a hyperlink field in the InfoPath form. I would like the user to be able to choose an item from the drop down list, click the button and have the hyperlink inserted into the form. Then be able to choose another item from the drop down list, click the button and have another hyperlink inserted. I added a rule on the button that when clicked, sets the value of the hyperlink field to the value of the drop down item picked. This works, however, only allows for one hyperlink to be inserted.

I have also tried to use the multiple selection list box, by querying the URL column as the choices. This allows for multiple selections, however it shows up as text a
