Conditional Formatting in Custom Newform Based on Value in Different List

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

Hi All,

Running MOSS.

I have two lists: one with Upcoming Events as items, and one for Registrants. They are tied by an Event ID (as a common field) that we create for each event. An event may or may not have a fee associated with it; the fee is a column in the Upcoming Events list.

When someone signs up for an Event, I have customized a version of Newform to collect information for the Registrants list. I have fields for Cardholder payment information in the Newform1, which I would like to hide if the fee in the Upcoming Events list equals zero. I have looked at Conditional Formatting, but don't see a way to look outside of the Registrants list for the info.

I have read about event receivers, but I don't know or have Visual Studio. I was thinking about a workflow, but the registrants may be unauthenticated users (anonymous), which creates an error page to those users when workflows are triggered. I have seen discussions of javascript solutions as well, but they tend to be somewhat off-base and they go into areas that lose me.

The Event ID gets populated to the Registrants list via some custom coding done by someone else (who is no longer available to be consulted). If condtional formatting based on a value in a different list is not possible, I would be interested in any ideas to popu

How to do Conditional Formatting based on List Rating (0-5)?

  
I have a list that houses Knowledge Base articles. I have the view style setup as a Preview Pane so people can just hover over the titles and quicky glance at the body of the article. Each article has the Rating (0-5) and I would like to setup Conditional Formatting where articles rated higher than 4 will have size 14 font Title and articles rated lower than 2 may have size 10 font Title. I've set my condition as @AverageRating > 4.00 but nothing changes in the Preview Pane. Am I doing something wrong?

Custom List Edit is redirecting to newform

  

Good Afternoon - I have an issue with a Custom List I created.  I created a custom new form, called CopyNewForm and it works perfectly.  I tried to change EditForm just to rearrange fields.  Everything broke New, Edit, and Display.  I got New and Display working (I've made no changes to Display) but now when you select EditForm, SharePoint redirects to the CopyNewForm.

 

The Supporting Files of List Properties has been changed for <b>Item</b>.  New item form directs to CopyNewForm.aspx and Edit item form points to EditForm.aspx for content type "Item". 

 

I'm at a loss as to why when I try to click on Edit Item, SharePoint directs me to CopyNewForm. 

 

Please does anyone have any suggestions.

 

Thanks,

Picker returns nothing for BDC column in custom list

  

Playing with the BDC for the first time, running into some issues adding a Business Data column to a custom list.

I believe my ADF file is solid. I've been able to import that just fine and can use the application to drive various BDC-specific webparts (a Business Data List or Business Data Item, for example). It also seems to work when I manually enter information in my NewForm.aspx field and click the Check Names button (it verifies my entry and underlines it, creates link to profile when I view the list data).

But...

If I try to use the picker, I get nothing. Enter a name I know is valid or a % and click the magnifying glass icon and I very briefly get the "Please Wait" message, then just an empty set with "Type into the search box above then press "Enter" to start your search" where my results should be.

Any pointers? Thanks.


SharePoint Designer: insert custom list not working anymore

  

Hello,

Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.

It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).

Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they say.

I also tried the solutions listed here: http://blogs.msdn.com/spdsupport/archive/2008/07/03/how-to-fix-custom-list-forms-will-not-insert-or-show-up-on-the-design-surface-of-sharepoint-designer.aspx
But they don't fix the problem.

So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.

Need to pass parameters from URL to fields in Custom List

  

I have a complex customized list and I need to pass parameters of two fields so that when the 'Questionnaire' is completed and subsequentially opened after initial submission, it will retrieve the Number and GUID automatically in respective fields. I send an email out with a link to the 'Form' that carries the parameters. I am trying to use the following javaScript but am unsure as to where to place this on the SharePoint page for it to work.
