Calculated date field displays differently in List View and Data View web parts

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
In SharePoint GUI I created a simple custom list with a calculated Date/Time field (Due).  The calculation is =[Created]+7.  I'm trying to display this data on a page using a DVWP.  But first, for testing purposes, I also created a second calculated Date/Time (TestCreate) field in my custom list that is simply =[Created]. In the List View from within SharePoint, the dates show as expected (for example): Created = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM Due = 8/19/2010 3:45 PM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 3:45 PM In SharePoint Designer, I added a Data View web part and the above three data elements (each configured to display mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt).  I see the time displayed for the example list item as: Created = 8/12/2010 3:45:30 PM Due = 8/19/2010 10:45:00 AM TestCreate = 8/12/2010 10:45:00 AM I've tested a couple scenarios and the calculated fields always display five hours in the past (along with dropping the seconds).  It seems like the DVWP is returning the date in a different time zone (with no seconds).  The lcid is set right (1033).  I didn't see any time zone settings for the DVWP specifically.  I'm basically stuck.  Could someone help me figure this one out. Thanks.

Data Form Web Part - Sharepoint Dropdown List as a field in Edit View - Possible?


Hi guys,

I'm building a Sharepoint page with a data form web part that uses custom SELECT and UPDATE statements with an SQL Server connection in order to retrieve and store records of information.

I'm getting along fine, records seem to update how they should etc, but I've ran into a problem with one thing: Sharepoint dropdownlists in 'Edit Template'

So the issue is this: if I replace a textbox field with a dropdown list that is populated with a separate SQL datasource, the dropdown list seems to be unable to show the current value of the field.

E.g. I have a dataview which has a field "FruitID", which I can update just fine by setting the ID value to different numbers. The SQL datasource uses the FruitID to display a list of all available Fruits, (e.g. 1 = Banana, 2 = Apple, 3 = Cherry, etc).

If i open the dataview in editmode, the default value in the dropdown is null, despite the real value of the field being "2", which should show "Apple" in the dropdown.

I can select a fruit and click save, and it will update just fine. But the initial display needs to show the correct value to start with.

Is there a custom binding I should be coding to make this work? I can't configure dropdown <items> on an individual level as they are populated from the SQL server. I can't set "SelectedI

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

List View Permissions and Views for Web Parts

My fellow developers and I are going in circles a bit with our new Sharepoint 2010.  This question probably has several different answers.   I have a list of grades and comments that our Team Leaders want to create and save on Sharepoint.  When saved, the user who was graded should be able to see their own grades.  Its a pretty simple requirement and I'm 90% of the way there.   I created a list with the required fields, and two separate views.  The first view filters the list by the user's name so they see on their grades.  The second view shows all grades in a grouped order by the person who assigned the grade.  To make this second view more readable, I added some formatting with Sharepoint Designer 2010.  It looks nice.   Here's where the speed bump occurs.  I create a web parts page for each view.  The page showing only the user grades works as expected.  The other page, however, shows the list in a view that I didn't create.  No matter what view I select from the "Edit Web Part" menu, it always shows this strange view.  If I select the list, it says its current view is "Default".  The second view I created is set as default, but its not the view I see.  If I change the current view from list menu to the second view specifically, it shows up correctly. &n

XSL Lookup to another List in a View. Joining in data from another List. xsl:value-of select=

I've been able to create a DataView with data joined from two SP Lists. I did this using SPD, a linked Source, and doing joined subviews.  The technique works nicely, but I have to create my DataView from scratch.As an alternative, I took an existing AllItems View in SPD, converted it to XSL, and was able to add a column from another List as follows:   <TD Class="{$IDA1VDGH}" style="width: 62px; height: 23px"><xsl:value-of select="/dsQueryResponse/Master/Rows/Row/@Lastname" />The problem is, it reports the column for the first row everytime. I'm new to XSL and was wondering..    using XSL, and preserving all the original columns already in the View, is there anyway to make the added column smarter, maybe with a filter?I noticed in my working example, I have this filter (I guess where the subview join magic is)            [@Title = $dvt_ParentRow/@Key] which does not resolve syntax:I tried this, but it does not work, only finding one match, and it also seems to get set for the entire Dataview and not just the column.     [../../../Master/Rows/Row/@Title = @Key] I guess I'm looking either for the SPD steps, or XSL code for adding a single column from another list, joined in by a column in both lists.Thanks for any help or information.

Create View in an External List that Gets a Field from Another External Content Type via Foreign Key


I currently have two tables in a SQL Server 2k8 database: Locations and Customers

The fields in the Locations table are:

  • LocationName
  • StreetAddress
  • City
  • State
  • ZIP
  • CusotmerID (foreign key joined to Customers table)

The fields in the Customers table are:

  • ID (primary key)
  • CustomerName
  • CurrentBalance

Through SharePoint Designer, I have both tables set up as External Content Types of the same names as the tables and have created External Lists for each External Content Type. All CRUD operations are working perfectly. I added the proper Assocaiation and I've set CustomerName to be the Title of the Customers External Content Type. I can currently use a picker for CustomerID in the Locations List and CustomerName is displayed properly. Also, the default DispForm also correctly displays the CustomerName for any single Location record.

However, I would like to modify the default ReadList so the foreign key (CustomerID) will show the Title field of Customers (CustomerName). However, I am running into trouble finding out how to do this.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated!!


Unable to view data on list views

I have two lists. A List item in one list will be inserted to the other list based on the actions. This is easily achieved on the event receiver by adding the list item to the target list. Though I adds the list item to the target list; i am only able to view those data when i click on "Modify View" and simply click on "OK" button. Basically its a view refresh / commit. Has anyone came across such issue?
