create a custom "newform.aspx" for document library using sharepoint designer and web services


Hi All,

I need to change the look and feel of "NewForm.aspx" for my Sharepoint 2007 Document Library. But the constraints are

1. I cant use C# coding. No Visual Studio.

2. Not allowed change anything in the farm level. e.g. cant install features/webparts fo this.

3. Can only use JavaScript, JQuerry and Sharepoint Designer 2007.

I came across some suggestions that we can create a custom page in Javascript/JQuery. Which will take all input data and insert new items in list/doc library using some XML services.

Please help me, I dont know if this is really possible. Let me know if any alternative is possible.

Custom Editform.aspx crashes Sharepoint Designer

Hi there,

I've recently designed a sharepoint list and customised newform.aspx and editform.aspx. I made copies of the originals then customised the copies.
On both forms I simply:

* Closed original List Form web part
* Added Custom List Form
* Added some section breaks (<tr>) to the form to break it into sections
* Added a new css style to change the background colour on the section breaks (table rows)

Now NewForm.aspx works fine. However after making above changes in EditForm.aspx, I saved it. However whenever I try to reopen EditForm.aspx in Sharepoint Designer (SD), SD crashes! I can only open it in Text view. The error details reported by SD are:

I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes.

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

Custom document library template at farm level.


Dear all..

I'm trying to create a custom document library template at farm level, as I want to template to be available in all the sites I create.

The thing is that I'm not sure if I'm taking the correct approach. I just need a standard document library with 3 additional columns (Metadata) 2 text fields and one date field. I will then add a document library of this type to a custom site template I've already created. (So instead of list with Type '101' I will use my custom 10055 library.

The way I'm trying to do this is:

1. I make a copy of the FEATURES\DocumentLibrary folder of my installation. So now I have FEATURES\CustomLibrary folder

2. I create an empty SharePoint project in Visual Studio 2010 and map the TEMPLATE folder, and the I add CustomLibrary folder and all the files and subfolders in it.

3. I edit the feature.xml, and add a newly generated GUID

4. I make the modifications I need to the other xml files included in the DocLib and SiteTemplates subfolders. (Type=10055, etc..)

5. I right click on the solution and deploy.


After this, I can't see my custom library when I try to create a new item in my sites. 

One thing I don't understand is why the OOTB DocumentLibrary feature has HIDDEN = true in the feature.xml file. Anyway I've tried both in my custom template, but

Change Document Library default action on Items



I have a standard Document Library where I uploaded various  kinds of file (.pdf, swf). Whenever I click on an item (or I paste its direct link into the browser) it prompts me to download it instead of opening it into the browser directly (with flash player or acrobrat in my example).

How to obtain the desired behavior? Thanks

Custom search to document library to find specific document



I have a document library with having multiple folders approx 100 (001 to 100) , each folder is having multiple document ,Every folder in that document library contains 50000 documents , Document library has some fileds like Fname, Lname,Document Type [Look up field] having value(Genral,Average,Advance) . now the problem is to search these documents with using custom search as per requirement

the user wants a webpart where it has 2 textbox [FName and LName] and a dropdown [Document type] and a button , using this the user can enter the first name , last name and selecting document type from the dropdown and finally clicking the search button filters the document library. 

my problem is with that how the value of this search criteria can be passed to the Document library.How these webpart can be connected with custom search or do we have any other way to search.




Outlook "Save as" in document library with all custom column


I want to put my Outlook 2007 email in my sharepoint document library (moss 2007).
To do that, I do "Save As" in Outlook. In "My Network Places" I put the url of my library.
Then, in some cases, my email is saved directly. And in other cases, outlook opens me the form to inform the different meta-data "web file properties" (
that's what I want) . it does not save the field values. It takes the default values of columns. Same required columns

However, in any case, the metadata are stored in sharepoint.

Do you use this method?
What configuration of my document library must have that outlook I am proposing to fill the metadata? (Docume

Save button on custom EditForm.aspx locks record



I am having an issue with my EditForm.aspx on a list. My problem is that when I make a change to a record and click save (and it brings me back to the page), the first set of changes are saved fine but if I then enter more content and click save without refreshing the page I get the error:

 Save Conflict.

Your changes conflict with those made concurrently by another user. If you want your changes to be applied, click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and resubmit your changes.


This is the code that I am using for my save button:

<input type="button" value="Save Changes" name="btnFormAction" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit')}" style="padding: 5px; border-style: none; background-color: #21374c; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; font-size: 14px;" />

 Is there something I need to add to my code that unlocks the record once it has been saved?

Thanks in advance for the help :)

Custom Ordering in Document Library

I would like to order the document library folders and files (in those folders) on a custom column. Is that possible? For example, I would like to create a "number" column and sort the items based on that column.

Are there any other alternatives?


custom editform.aspx with dataform webpart

we created a custom editform.aspx for a sharepoint custom list and added  custom list form/dataform webpart (insert-->sharepoint controls-->custom list form)  control
to the webpart zone and set the visibility of default "ListFormWebPart" to false.

some of the  form field controls (not required fields) are removed from the dataform webpart. we are able to open an item in edit mode using this custom edit
form and save the  list item.

The strange thing we noticed is that this edit form(editform.aspx) always opens in  EDIT mode (with page | Workflow | Tools | Save and stop editing)

links on the page(below the navigation control). though  "save and stop editing"  link is clicked the page is posting to the server but with no luck, still able to see those links.

We noticed this only with editform.aspx but not with Newform.aspx,displayform.aspx.
