Hide Document Infomation Panel

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I created bdc columns to get the data from our database (SQL). 
When I upload a document i need these columns but not when i create a new document.
So all i need is i do not want the show document information panel when i create a new document.

Is there a way where i can disable or hide document information panel?

i tried few but they dont work. Let me tell u what are all the steps i tried:

1. Document Library Settings -- Under content Types -- document -- Document Infomation Panel Settings

But in document information Panel settings check box for Always show Document Information Panel already unchecked. (But still the document information panel opens when ever i create a new document) 

2. In word 2007 developer version navigate to developer tab - Document panel - I see that the checkbox is unchecked for always show document information panel on document open and initail save.
Display By Default = standard and SharePoint Library properties.

Please suggest me something to disable document information panel .

BDC + Document Information Panel Javascript Error


I hope someone here can shed some light on this one...


We have a document library configured with a few content types and document information panels for those items. Also on this list we have a BDC column setup to pull client names from MS CRM. This works fine on the list itself, however, in Word 2007 - the picker does not show up in the DIP, so we cannot easily select clients without knowing the name (first issue).

Secondly, if we enter in a client name, or partial, we recieve the following error:

"There was an error in the validation code" - with the following details:
Document Information Panel cannot complete this action, because of an error
in the form's code.
The following error occurred:

Object required

Any help is appreciated!

Document Information Panel problem with Infopath

Hi, I have created a custom document content type that uses a specified word template deployed by a feature for a sharepoint site collection. The Content Type is defined in site collection level i have add a column also defined as a site column called "Abstract", and I added this column to my content type. Now I want to create a custom DIP using Infopath, when infopath is launched it maps all column from this content type. The problem that the "Abstract" column wich is defined as rich text and optional column is not mapped correctly Infopath show that field as a required field and can not be blank. When i added this content type to a document library and try to create a new document i have an error "Document Information Panel cannot create.. problem on the schema with Abstract field". When i try to modify the xsn file at the document library level and republish the form it works but when i do it in the site collection level it's impossible to map the field properly. Any suggestions about what might be causing this problem or how to fix it would be greatly appreciated. ABT

People Picker Render Error in Document Information Panel

I created a Content Type and added 3 columns.  One of those columns is a People Picker type column. When I open the Content Type by going to NEW -> MyContentType in a document library in SharePoint it opens in Microsoft Word but the People Picker control does not render correctly in the Document Information Panel. There is no error - just a display of a broken control. Is there a fix?

After async postback, hide/show panel stops working

I have a Gridview in an UpdatePanel with a column containing an "expander" button that shows (and hides) more detail beneath its row of data.  It all works great until the user pages the gridview.  After the async postback to page the gridview, the javascript function to toggle hide/show appears to work flawlessly (the expander's button image even changes correctly), but the detail panel just doesn't show on the page.Note that my expander control supports a "AsyncTriggerId" property that, if set in the markup, will rebind the javascript toggle function when that control triggers an async postback (see OnPreRender below)Here's the hide/show toggle javascript:function toggleExpander(divId, imgId) { var div = document.getElementById(divId); var img = document.getElementById(imgId); var cssClass = div.getAttribute("className"); if (div.style.display == "" || div.style.display == "none" || cssClass == "hidden") { div.style.display = "inline"; div.setAttribute("className", ""); img.src = "images/dir_down.png"; mce_src = "images/dir_down.png"; img.alt = "Collapse to hide details"; } else { div.style.display = "none"; img.src = "images/dir_rig

Using jQuery .hide() and .show() on panel sets doesn't maintain status through postback. Viewstate

I'm using jQuery against a set of three asp panels.  I set up an 'onChange' function for a dropdown list that dictates which panels to hide and show based on the UI selection.When the page first loads, one of the panels will be shown, the others will be hidden.  Let's say pnlOne is showing because the dropdown has option 1 selected.  This is done on the server with this:pnlOne.Style.Add("display","block");//and all the other panels are set to ".Style.Add("display","none");" based on logic.Then, the user selects a different value in the dropdown.  Let's say they select option number 2.  With javascript and jQuery I do this:$("#<%=pnlOne.ClientID %>").hide();$("#<%=pnlTwo.ClientID %>").hide();$("#<%=pnlThree.ClientID %>").hide();switch($("#<%= ddlOptionNumber.ClientID %> option:selected").text()){case "1":$("#<%= pnlOne.ClientID %>").show();break;case "2": etc.,}The issue is when the page posts back.  I'm running client side validation only at this point.  (Even if I add client side in the future I will still run client side as well to avoid security issues.)  When the validation functions detect an issue and the page returns to be displayed, the original panel (pnlOne)

Hide ribbon, Hide site content/recycle button. Caledar overlay. Document publishing. Other questions


I have a 2010 farm operational and working well. I had a few questions.

(1) How to disable ribbons from appearing on the top (for anonymous sites).

(2) When I move the mouse over a tab in the top bar, how do I display a banner. It was easy enough in 2007, but I am not sure in 2010.

(3) I have disabled quick launch. But it still displays all site content and recycle bin. Is there a way to not to show those.

(4) Calendar overlay - Is this to display multiple calendars in one calendar using different colors to differentiate them. But if I had calendars in different site collections, then I guess due to the gallery boundary, I cannot calendars from multiple site collections.

(5) Document publishing - For some reason, this was easier in SPS 2007. I am not able to get it to work in 2010. Basically update a web page dynamically from a word document. Could anyone kindly provide a link. Also, would I be able to update a page in one site collection from a document from another site collection.

(6) Is it possible to move a folder/doc from one document library to another in one site collection (without webdav). Further, can I move a document library from one site collection to another.

Please advise. Sorry if I asked too many questions in the same post. I am newbie and this is my first post.

Title Column-Document Information Panel


Hi, I'm pretty new to Sharepoint 2K10; I have the following issue.

I create a content type based on the standard "Document" content type that has the Title Column required.

I've activated multiple content types in a library and I've associated a ppt template to the content type.

When I create a new document based on the above content type, the Title field in the Document Information Panel (Office 2010)doesn't appear as mandatory even if it actually is.

That's generate confusion on the user.

Custom Choice Field in Document Information Panel


Hello Everybody,

I have created a custom field from SPFieldChoice. My requirement was to customize this custom field in such a way that the dropdown can show items from a specified list.This column type I created specifically for a document library meta data.

I tried to add items to the Choices collection (within the constructor). It seems working fine as I can see the dropdown populated perfectly while uploading documents. But at the same time in the Document Information Panel of the MS WORD, it is not showing properly. What happening is, the dropdown values are not "dynamic". Even if I change the values in my list, the doropdown within the DIP stays same.

Mean time, on the document upload page, it is showing dynamically.

if I remove the column and re-add, it populates again with that instantaneous list items, but remains static afterwards on the DIP.

Error: "The document information panel was unable to load"





I have created a custom document content type that uses a specified word template for a sharepoint document library for contracts and offers, and added a few custom columns in the document library as well. The word template launches succesfully when creating a new item in the document library, but the problem arises when I add custom columns to the word template content type. When the document loads in Word, I get the following error: "The Document Information Panel was unable to load. The document will continue to open.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.
