Change Columns to be represented in calendar View

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



I have created a global calendar that takes events from my subsite calendar. It works great, the only problem is that I cannot change the default Title column in Month View Title, don't know what code to use. I know I should create a content Type to hold my custom column, so I'm using the same columns in all my subsites, I want to change Title as the column in "Month View Title", "Week View Title", "Week View Sub Heading", "Day View Title" and "Day View Sub Heading". I will continue my search but if anyone knows I'll be glad to get some help. Thanks.

Calendar View using Calculated Columns


I've got a large list of documents that undergo regular maintenance.  To help facilitate this, we had an Excel spreadsheet (recently converted into a Custom List in SharePoint) containing columns with "Date Last Revised"(Date), "Effective Period"(number), "Delay"(number), and "Next Revision Start Date"(calculated; Date Last Revised + Effective Period + Delay).

This works fine, until you get into SharePoint.  My columns are:
   Date Last Revised - Date and Time (Date Only) format
   Effective Period - Number format, Default Value = 365 (1 year)
   Delay - Number format, Default Value = 0
   Next Revision Start Date - Calculated (based on other columns) format; sum of other three columns

The Calculated column works fine, and will calculate a Date based on the values of the other columns.  HOWEVER, my ultimate goal would be to have a Calendar View of this information, where the Start/End dates are the "Next Revision Start Date" column.

When I try to use any other Date column, it works.  When I try to use the calculated "date" column, it gives me a generic error message:
An unexpected error has occurred.

I don't really want to lose the functionality of each item being able to have separate effective period and delay values, but any informatio

Change grid view from table to other HTML layout



You'll have to excuse my ignorance, I'm coming at this from a front-end perspective, and don't really know how to deal with data views in ASP.NET.

Basically, I'm trying to change the layout of some repeated data from a straight table, to something more design-heavy.  It's the same data, just re-organised slightly.  The current ASP.NET code looks like this:

                    <asp:GridView ID="GVMoments" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
                        AutoGenerateColumns="False" PageSize="20" RowHeaderColumn="FirstName"
                        SkinID="GroupSkin" DataKeyNames="moment_id" 
                        <PagerSettings Mode="NumericFirstLast" PageButtonCount="20" Position="TopAndBottom" />
                        <RowStyle />
                                <asp:BoundField DataField="moment_id" HeaderText="moment_id" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="moment_id"
                                    Visible="False" In

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

Thanks, Jenda

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

Applying custom CSS to the MOSS 2007 Calendar control Month view



I have a requirement to use the MOSS 2007 Calendar Control - month view is to apply a custom css to have a look and feel as per our requirements.

We tried applying the custom css to the MOSS 2007 calendar control - month view, it does take the custom css and applies it, but when i click on any date and come back to the calendar control, it changes the CSS of the MOSS calendar control back to the default one.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestion on  how to customize the calendar control for css for our intranet application.

Your response would be highly appreciated.






DataGridView>Edit Columns> Column Read Only property is unwilling to change

Hello, I am facing the following mystery: When changing the read only property of a column to false and reopening the "edit columns" window, it mysteriously turns back to true. Even when closing the designer and changing it in the designer code, the resulting execution does not allow edit, as well as when re-opening the designer you see true again.             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.DataPropertyName = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.HeaderText = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.Name = "numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.ReadOnly = true;//False is required We thought it might be related to data binding. rebinding the grid did not help as well. The is no other place in the code where it changes. Please advice, Thanks

Customize calendar to view next month

I was wondering if there is a way to change the calendar view on SharePoint so that it defaults to next month.  Will I have to create a custom web part for this functionality or can I create a view and manipulate it with filters? Thank you in advance.

Displaying Calendar Description Field In Calendar View

In the default "out of the box" calendar view it only shows the Title of a calendar event. Is there any way to show not only the Title field but also the Description field?

Calendar and grouped view causes errors

Hello, I've come across a bizarre situation on a standard web part page. First I add a simple (or so I thought) document library web part with a view grouped on a column. The view is collapsed. Then, I add a calendar view to a page. Immediately, my grouped doc lib view turns into a site navigation web part with no resemblance to the doc lib. If I change the doc lib view to a non-grouped view, all is well again. I've built three different pages on different sites and can re-create this problem every time. If I change the Calendar web part to a detail rather than a calendar view, the page goes back to normal. Any idea what is going on here or how I can mix a calendar and a grouped view on the same page?   Thanks.

Remove time from Month Calendar view

We have a calendar part on a page that has very narrow boxes for each day. As such we want to remove the time from appearing before the title of the event. I have managed to do this through css where there is only one event. However, have not been able to remove it where there are mutiple events. Any ideas on how this can be removed in both scenarios? Cheers, Theo

Can Managed Metadata columns be edited in the DataSheet View of a Library or List?

Hi, I like to mass set document properties in a library using DataSheet View, the properties are columns based on Managed MetaData values. When I open the doc library in Datasheet view, those columns become read-only. I made sure the library does not require 'Check Out' and also tested it in other views then the AllItems view. Can someone confirm what is the expected functionality and or if there is a bug?

Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

Problems with a calendar and a grouped view

Hi, I am having a problem mixing a SharePoint 2010 Calendar view with a Document library view that is grouped and collapsed. Whenever I add the calendar view to a page (calender details work fine just not the graphical calendar), I lose all the detail in my grouped documents view. I see either an empty icon with an "X" on it or just the name of the grouped column. I need to have these elements together on a team site home page for a major project. If you have not tried this, could someone see if they can replicate the behavior? I've tried it on my dev and QA systems and it happens the same on both and in different site collections as well. Thanks.
