When I click on EditItem in the list it is navigating to DispForm.aspx

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

Hi Swirch,

I am changing ControlMode to "Display" and making <IsVisible> to false in custom EditForm.aspx. But when I click on EditItem in the list it is navigating to DispForm.aspx whose ControlMode is Display.

Please suggest some workaround for this.

Delete not working on List.aspx - out of box



I'am trying to use Dynamic data web site on my project. I have Visual Studio 2010 enf Framework 4.0. I create the default project with the wizard. I add my own Entity Data Model.

When I try to use the "delete" autogenerated button on List.aspx, on the table ServerSetting (see image below), I receive a null exception.  I have no custom code involved in this operation and cannot seem to determine what is Null.

Any help would be appreciated!

How to use a drop down list to edit in the standard Edit.aspx with DD?


Hey All,

I'm brand new to Dynamic Data and to ASP.NET.  I've been able to fumble around and get the calendar extender up and running and a few other customization options implemented, but I can't seem to get this drop down list to work - even after reading tons of online info.  The good news is that my web page/application is VERY simple, so hopefully you guys can help me out.  I'm working in VB btw.

I have a list of road projects submitted to me by local governments.  One of the fields is SponsoringAgency, which has a limited number of possible entries (the names of member governments).  Thus, when they submit a new project, or edit an existing one, I want to limit the input into the field "SponsoringAgency." I'm trying to use a dropdownlist because I'm familiar with it from Access, but it may not be the best approach.  Imagine you just setup a brand new, standard DD website, how would you get this to work?

Methods tried and failed (probably because I don't understand them fully):

UIHint - The closest I can get with this is an error saying that since SponsoringAgency isn't a Foreign Key, I'm out of luck.

Creating a SponsoringAgency Table - In my data layer, I created a second table with a list of government names.  I then tried se

the list.aspx bad behaviour


I have two tables : table1 (primary) and table2 with one to many relation .

table 1 has more than 130 000 records , table2 has near to 200 000 records .


when i am trying to list table2 , the table2/list.aspx will build filter depending on the relation.; this operation slows down the page (drop down list with 130 000 record)

 I disabled the filter by using the attribute AutoGenerateFilter = False .


now the problem is that table2/list.aspx?key=value will list all the recoreds in table 2 .


why is the page not using the query that is related to the parmeter passed to it ?


List.aspx (or list.aspx?key=value) will always get all the recorders from the table2  after disabling the key relation filter .

I want my table2/list.aspx?key=value  to query the table2 depending on the passed key which is the expected behaviour .

please advice .

Way of showing ID on the DispForm.aspx page without programming?

Is there a way of showing the ID system field on the DispForm.aspx page without programming.
I don't want to use a dataview, as new fields being added in the future won't appear automatically anymore this way on the DispForm.aspx page. 

I found somewhere that I could use a calculated field, with as formula =ID (so, in fact just copying the value of the ID field in the calculated field), which is one option.

Are there other options/solutions known?

Copy of dispForm.aspx and lookup column

Hello, we have created in SPD 2010 a new Dispform. This new dispformuser.aspx is the new default form for viewing list entries. We want to hide some elements with jquery. We are using some lookup columns in our list. When we open an entry in the new form, the lookup-columns looks like <a href="http://s-sharepoint-02.kkrn.local/_layouts/listform.aspx?PageType=4&ListId={1D8EE013-E164-482F-861E-9CACB2EBF6B5}&ID=1&RootFolder=*">Marien-Hospital</a> The form is not customized at the moment, it is only a copy at the moment. Any other colums are ok. Editform and newform seems to be ok, also the lookup columns. Maybe somebody can help us with this behaviour.  thank you Regards Marc

Custom Email Alert template creating links to DispForm.aspx

I have a requirement to customise the alert template for a standard blog post list. To do this I: 1. Created a copy of alertstemplate.xml 2. Copied the genericList alert template node and customised 3. Registered the new template file against the site collection, iisreset and finally assigned the new Alert template to the list, when alerts are created the custom template is emailed. The problem now arises that the 'View <Post Title>' in the toolbar section now creates a hyperlink to http..../Lists/Posts/Dispform.aspx?ID=xx rather than post.aspx. I have checked using sharepoint designer that the list supporting files has the correct display item form of Lists/Posts/Post.aspx. Additionally if I reset the alert template for the list back to use the Generic list template the same problem still occurs so this leads me to believe it is not the customisations that are the problem. Code used to assign the alert template to the Posts list: var ats = new SPAlertTemplateCollection((SPWebService) site.WebApplication.Parent); var newTemplate = ats[alertName]; if (newTemplate == null) { // We did not find the specified Template. throw new Exception("Failed to find template SPAlertTemplateType.NewsPost in the template collection."); } list.AlertTemplate = newTemplate; list.Update(); Any assistance will be most welcome, thanks in advance.
