How to pass parameter to NewForm.aspx

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

SharePoint 2007

I have a two lists (users and classes).

A third lists has a NewForm.aspx with 2 fields.  Both LookUp fields (User and Class).

Is there a way to pass parameters to the NewForm.aspx that will prefill the form with the user and class of choice?

i.e., https://domain/site/list/newform.aspx?User=Smith, John&Class=Math 101

I have access to SharePoint Designer, and I am a site collection admin.  I do not have access to the servers and cannot install anything on the server.  This is a secure sharepoint configuration and third party webparts, apps, programs are not allowed.  So this will have to be done with site admin priviledges and/or SharePoint Designer.

Please be as detailed as possible.

Thank you in advanced.

How to pass a parameter from a choice filter with project IDs to a KPI web part?



I have an excel pivot table like this:

Report Filter: Project ID
proj_name     Status 
A              70
B              60
C              80

I have this workbook published onto Sharepoint server through excel services.
On the site i have a choice filter that has all the project ID's. I am able to show this table in a web part and filter the web part by passing parameter from the choice filter to the report filter in the workbook as shown above.
I added a KPI webpart that uses the "status" from the above table as its indicator value. What I want to do is that I want to pass the parameter from the choice filter on the site to this KPI web part so that it will show me the corresponding status dynamically accoring to the project chosen.
Can someone help me solve this problem?

How can I pass a parameter into my report?


I looked all over the forums, spent about a day on it, found numerous people having similar problems passing a parameter, but all the solutions I found so far were partially incomplete or incompatible to my project. I tried using a few of the "solutions" and they generated exceptions. I'm using straight ASP.NET so far with no c#. Is there a way to do it without code behind?

If someone suggests a solution I would be very grateful! Laughing I'm certain that if you provide a complete working example that others in the future will be very grateful as well.

Here is what I have thus far:

I used studio to create an .ASPX web form, and I used the report wizard to create a .RLDC file on the .ASPX page.

When I execute it, it works! Beautiful... Now how do I pass it a parameter?

So this is what I have below (which works), but I want to pass in a single int32 parameter to the stored procedure usprptGetData in which it is based.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MyPage.aspx.cs" Inherits="My_Reports_Guarantor" %>

pass parameter between datasets

so i guess i need two datasets but how can I pass parameters between them to know what is the current user id ..?

thanks so much

Form Action Button to pass parameters through URL and how to fill a NewForm with them

Hi I'm trying to solve a bigger problem we have in babysteps, and I guess after days of searching and trying I simply need to ask for help. The big picture is, that we're trying to put a Form Action Button (via Sharepoint Designer 2007) above a custom DataForm DispForm.aspx which is supposed to navigate to a NewForm.aspx where the Title Field is supposed to be prefilled with a parameter from the DispForm and the user should be able to add information to the item before it is saved. I found several explanations from people on the internet, but nothing really worked. The first babystep would be to get the parameter through the button into the url of the new item.   < input type = "button" value = "Zugriff Beantragen" name = "btnFormAction0" onclick = "javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__redirect={../Zugriff Beantragen 2/NewForm2.aspx?test={ItemID}')}" />   That's the code for my button. Somebody wrote that should definitely work because SharePoint is able to replace {ItemID} with the actual ID of the item. Well.... it kind of doesn't. What I get as the end of the new URL is exactly "...?test={ItemID}"   I tried with different names for the ID, I added an @ before those ... no change. I read somewhere about javascript.functionName() which should work with all parameters of the item, but

SharePoint 2007, Modify Tooltip Text in SharePoint forms: EditForm.aspx and NewForm.aspx

I have a list in SharePoint that was created awhile back.  The names assigned to some of the columns in the list are no longer relevant.  Due to existing code, the column names cannot be modified to reflect the preferred names.  I was able to change the lables assiciated with these fields within forms NewForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx.  All looks and works just fine except for when the curser lingers in one of these fields, the tooltip that appears contains the underlining (original...no longer relevant) column names.  This is confusing to the user since the name within the lable and the tooltip are different.  I would like a way to either disable the tooltip from displaying or to modify it to display a custom value.  Below is the code from behind the form as it appears in Sharepoint Designer.  I would appreciate some input on this. <SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff11{$Pos}" ControlMode="Edit" FieldName="My_x0020_Field_x0020_Name" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff11',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@My_x0020_Field_x0020_Name')}"/> <SharePoint:FieldDescription runat="server" id="ff11description{$Pos}" FieldName="My_x0020_Field_x0020_Name" ControlMode="Edit"/>
