Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi

Error deleting an item from Custom List in 2010

I have an issue that I can't figure out, concerning deleting an item from a custom list in SharePoint 2010. If I create a custom list and add a few items, and I attempt to delete one of these items by selecting the checkbox to the left and using the "Delete Item" command on the Ribbon, I get this error (in IE):Object Expectedinplview.jsCode:0Line:2Char:20804URI: <a long nondescriptive URI>Interestingly enough, if I attempt to delete the same item by viewing it and selecting "Delete Item" (in the dialog box), it works that way. It seems like I can't delete items using the command in the Ribbon. This is also true for deleting library document items.Any ideas on how to solve this? I can't seem to find out what this inplview.js file is used for, and it doesn't exist on the server PC (I did a file search for it, and came up empty).Thanks,John

Refresh Parent Page List after Edit Item Modal Dialog Save/Close

I am calling the Edit Item URL (EditForm.aspx?ID=x&IsDlg=1) via javascript code to bring up the Edit Item Modal Dialog. This works fine and dandy. But what callbackfunction should I invoke after the Save so that the parent list is refreshed? Is there a better way to do it than call reload on the entire parent frame? It almost looks like there should be a way to refresh just the list. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Jake.

Add a New Item to a Custom Sharepoint List and Sharepoint Calendar from one Infopath form.


I am trying to create an infopath form for requesting time off.  Once the request is approved I want the form to add the event to a calendar on sharepoint.  I was able to do this using the article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-item-sharepoint-calendar-infopath.htm.  But I want the form to also add an item to a custom list that has the employees available time off stored on it.  That way the form can automatically subtract the time entered on the infopath form from what is available on the custom list.  I was able to do this using another article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at  http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-rich-text-item-sharepoint-list-infopath.htm.  I can make both of these functions happen seperately but I need them to happen on the same Infopath form.  I am using Infopath and MOSS 2007.  I have tried to use 2 CAML receive data files and I treid to co

The page cannot be displayed error when creating new item in custom list


Hi i am workign with a cutom list and every time i try to add a new item and hit ok i get the error shown below. Sometimes it happens and other times it doesnt and it only happens with a select few. One way of getting around this error is to not edit it on the page on which it is on but to go to view all content then to the custom list.

I have tried observing whether there was an issue with the pages being checked in and checked out but all pages were checked in and published. I tried deleting and recreating the custom list and no luck. Your feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks in advanced

btw i am a user with full control and our site is being hosted.

The page cannot be displayed
