C#: How to Add Item to SharePoint list using web services? One of the field is a choice field.

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

I have a code that looks something like this:

 

 

batch.SetAttribute("OnError", "Continue");
batch.SetAttribute("ListVersion", "1");
batch.SetAttribute("ViewName", "{GUID of my View}");

batch.InnerXml = "<Method ID='1' Cmd='New'>" +
"<Field Name='Title'>Something</Field>" +
"<Field Name='Status'>Something Else</Field> </Method>";

myList.UpdateListItems("{GUID of my List}", batch);

 

the field name "Status" is a choice field. When i execute this code, my program doesn't add anything to my sharePoint List. However when I remove the 

"<Field Name='Status'>Something Else</Field>

which means i'm left with this code:

How to Set a list item's createdby or modifiedby field as a User(deleted from AD)

  

Hi,

I have to migrate data from SQL DB to SP list. But its old data and some users who created/modified the record has been deleted from the AD. Now I need to set the CreatedBy / ModifiedBy Field of the item accordingly. How to achieve this?

And when I tried to modify the "Editor" and "Author" field through Object Model, it works. But its not working through Webservice. What is the reason behind this?

Please help me find an optimal solution for this...

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.

Updating a List item field value in a SPD Workflow is setting Date fields to null

  
Hello everybody,I faced a very weird behavior while creating a workflow in SPD against a Document Library.Here is the case:1- Create a document library in sharepoint site.2- Add a custom column of type DATE.3- Upload any document to the library4- Edit the item metadata and set the custom date field to any date you want.5- Now using sharepoint designer, create a very simple Workflow with only one action that updates the current item "Title" field to any value. (Note: In my case I set the workflow to start manually and not automatically)6- Save the workflow and then start it on the uploaded item.7- Now check the value of the date column after the workflow is finished.8- You will see that the Date field is Empty... (very weird)Notes:   1-This behavior will not appear on a standard list. it is only appearing in a Document library.  2- I am using WSS 3.0 SP2 + MOSS 2007 SP2. Also SharePoint designer 2007 SP2Did anyone face this situation and does it have a fix, or am I doing something wrong here... Please help.Regards,Maheed

How do I stop line feeds in a Hierarchy field from a SharePoint list to prevent wrapping

  
I'm developing a Reporting Services 2005 report that includes a Hierarchy field from a SharePoint 2007 list.  The Data Source for the report is an XML type. I would like to display the Hierarchy field on 1 line.  However, it is displaying in 2 or more lines. The field also wraps when rendering to Acrobat (PDF) file.  How can I get rid of the embedded line feed (I believe it's "&#xA").  I've tried using the Replace function in an expression, other functions and changed the properties, e.g., the CanGrow property.  Nothing seems to work. Does anybody have any suggestions?  Thanks.

Display each new line of a sharepoint mutliline text field as choice in drop down box.

  
The question pretty much says it all. I have a lot of data I need to represent, and this would be the best way to do it. I have a multiline text field in sharepoint, where each line has a choice that should be a seperate choice in a text box. How do I do this? I have the data connection set up, and I would be fine with adding some sort of tag after each line, if that would make it so infopath can somehow parse out those tags, and interpret each "chunk" as a choice. Thanks in advance for your help.

Auto-populating a field based on SharePoint Contacts List

  
Hello! Hopefully a quick question for you gurus :) So, I have two relevant fields in my InfoPath 2007 form: A drop-down list called Contact Name, and a text field called Contact Phone Number.  Contact Name is populated through a SharePoint Contacts List, retrieving their Full Name from that list. What I'd love to have happen is, when the user selects a name from the Contact Name list, have the form auto-populate the Contact Phone Number based on the phone number of the selected name from the SharePoint Contacts List. I tried to set a rule in Contact Name to, when the field is Not Blank, populate the Contact Phone Number with the phone number from the Contacts List, but all that does is populate the field with the top-most phone number, not the one matching the selected name. Any way to do this more accurately, and preferably without custom code? (Client has an explicit requirement to not have any custom code on the form or its associated workflow)   Thank you so much!
