"Launch forms in a dialog" setting is ignored for custom lists deployed with a feature

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

Hi folks!

I have a custom list (schema.xml) deployed with a feature. The list has custom new, edit and view forms defined in the schema.xml.

Every time i create, edit or view an item the form is displayed in a modal dialog. I tried to set tha "Launch forms in a dialog" to "No" in the Advanced Settings of the list, I also tried to set this property programmatically (SPList.NavigateForFormsPages), and I also tried to set it directly in the schema.xml.

With no success. My forms are still launched in dialogs! For other lists I create in the SP GUI this settings works as expected. Does anybody encounter the same problem and know a workarround??

regards,
Simon

EventReceiver oddities: When deployed as site scoped feature, it attaches to all lists - when deploy

  

Well this strikes me as very odd...

I have a VERY simple event receiver, running on ItemAdded, doing actually nothing but log for testing purposes. In the elements.xml it is attached to a specific List template (ListeTemplateId="10002").

My feature to deploy the list and the event receiver is site collection (site) scoped.

Everything deploys fine, but here comes the funny part:

(A workflow is attached to the said list)
After creating a new item in the list, the EventReceiver fires - all good. But it also fires for the Workflow History + Workflow Task list which have been touched by the workflow.

This seems impossible as I told the EventReceiver to only fire for the list with Template ID 10002... When trying to "find" the deployed EventReceiver via the OM - I cannot find it anywhere. It is actually not attached to the list (list.EventReceivers is empty besides the workflow event receivers) and it is not listed under SPWeb.EventReceivers. Neither the Workflow History nor the Workflow Task list has any EventReceiver.

The solution: Create a new web scoped feature and deploy the EventReceiver with that one. Outcome: Everything like it should be - the EventReceiver is only firing for the list I specified.

Why is this craziness happening?


Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature

  

I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.

Error when activating Infopath form deployed as a feature

  
I've packaged a form as a feature and created the appropriate WSP file for it.  i then deployed this feature to a target system using the following commands: @SET STSADM="C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\STSADM" @ECHO OFF ECHO Retract Solution %STSADM% -o retractsolution -n "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" -immediate ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs ECHO Remove Solution %STSADM% -o deletesolution -n "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" -override ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs ECHO Adding Solution %STSADM% -o addsolution -f "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs ECHO Deploying Solution %STSADM% -o deploysolution -n "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" -immediate -allowgacdeployment -force ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs The deployment process completes without errors, and when I check under Central Admin > Solution Mgmt, my feature is there and shows as "Deployed/Globally Deployed".  So all looks good at this time. However, when I go to the Site Collection and try to activate the feature I get this error -- any ideas what may be going on here or what I'm missing? Feature '25f5615f-b338-48ff-8eb7-2ba05dd9972c' could not be installed because the loading of event receiver assembly "Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server

What lists and what column types allow for setting "column default value settings"

  
There is a new setting for lists in 2010 called "Column default value settings". What lists does this setting apply to (I think just lists with a base template of Document Library)? And for what column types is it available? It was available on a "Single line of text" column but not a lookup column. Thanks in advance!

Custom Code Security Setting

  
I am using custom code in couple of my SSRS reports. I can view the output on report manager, but in my BI development studio it shows me an error "An error occured during local report processing". I tried all the possible options to resolve the issue. I am adding the references of the assemblies System.Data and System.XML. Also i referred the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/842419/en-us and tried all the steps to modify the code access security for custom assembly. I am clueless as in what to do next. Thanks, Chaitali

List Event Receivers firing for all custom lists

  
Hello, I have a site with two custom lists, and I have created an EventReceiver class to handle the ItemAdded event for custom lists. I have modified the EventReceiver's Elements.xml file to only handle items added to one of the custom lists instead of all custom lists, by changing: <Receivers ListTemplateId="100"> to <Receivers ListUrl="/Lists/MyCustomList">   however, when debugging, the ItemAdded method is being fired when an item is added in both custom lists. I have had to work around this by checking within the ItemAdded method for the list that fired the event:        public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)        {            base.ItemAdded(properties);            if (properties.ListTitle.Equals("My Custom List")) { ... } I thought the ListUrl attribute of the Receivers element specifies the event to only fire for the specific list with that url? (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms431081.aspx). Is there somewhere else I should be checking?   Thanks

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha

Custom masterpage Layout works fine, but WIDE sharepoint lists flow through, over design

  
Hello all, and thanks in advance for any help. We've built a custom masterpage layout and so far it works great.  We have specified a layout based on tables that fix the width at 960pixels.  The tables are centered on the screen and have a particular background that is different from the page's background to make the content pop.  It works fine in most cases and still displays all MOSSs dynamic contents like the quicklaunch bar at left, etc.  The theme sort of looks like this : http://www.sharepointpackages.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65&products_id=268&zenid=a045f5b7dba91fdab94d754569e0b611 The problem is that when a list has too many columns and is therefore wider than the 700 or so pixels that are left over for the placeholders inside the table, the list continues on, but does not affect the table itself.  In other words it appears as if the content was placed OVER the tables in the layout.  This is odd first of all, but it is actually bad in a way, because even if I use styles on the table cells that hold these placeholders, and have the overflow use scrolls, the table ACTUALLY does not see an overflow and the contents continue to run through without activating the scrollbars (they don't even show up).  Can anyone help.  Please, Please, I've been looking at HTML for two days straight now trying to fi
