Change Display Name

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


Is there a way to change the way someone is presented in SharePoint, specifically in My Site?

Right now when users are presented, either in their "Welcome" message at the top right or in the Profile and Colleagues areas it shows up as DOMAIN\John. What I would like for it to say is John Doe. How do I do this? This should be applied for all users, not just for me and my profile.

WPF: how to change the ListView cell template if the content is too long, it will display as Charact


We have used the GridView inside the ListView. We fix the column width (see the following link):


if the content is too long in one cell (since we fix the column width), we want it display as CharacterEllipsis at the end

just like the TextBlock we can define TextTrimming="CharacterEllipsis"

how can we achive it?


we have used the ListViewItemStyle as following, can we modify the <GridViewRowPresenter  /> section to achive it?

  <!--ItemContainerStyle with the Trigger for selection x:Key="ListViewItemStyle"-->
  <Style x:Key="ListViewItemStyle" TargetType="{x:Type ListViewItem}">
   <Setter Property="Background" Value="Transparent"/>
   <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center"/>
   <Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment" Value="Center"/>
   <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black"/>
   <Setter Property="Margin" Value="5,0,5,0&q

How to change the display name for LinkTitle or Title field in a Custom List programatically


We have a requirement, where we need to create a list from "Custom List" Template, through a console application.
But we need to change the Display Name of the column named "Title" created by default to something else say "CategoryName". We do not want to remove the column but only change its display name, so that the column with name "CategoryName"still has a hyperlink and ECB menu attached to it..

The same can be done by going to list settings and changing the name of the Title column, but I am not able to figure out how to do it progrmatically.


"Title"].Title = "Some Other Name";
CustomListName.Fields["LinkTitle"].Title = "Some Other Name"
