How to add webpart to SharePoint default NewForm, EditForm or DisplayForm?

Posted By :volvo     Posted Date :December 03, 2013    Points :40   Category :SharePoint 
We can easily add OOTB webpart or custom webpart to SharePoint default forms in your SharePoint List or Document Library.

Pass below url parameters after .aspx


?PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2

This will change the page in edit mode where you could see the webpart zone to add other webpart.
Once you've completed your update, just save the page.
Then you will have the option to edit the page from Site Actions later on.

What is the difference between System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart and Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart?

  
Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart is provided in MOSS 2007 to provide backwards compatability with MOSS 2003 webparts. In MOSS 2007, it is recommended to use System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart instead.

System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart does not provides a feature to get or provide to to other webparts.

What are the two base classes a WebPart you are going to use within SharePoint 2007 can inherit from?

  
There are two base classes that a WebPart which is going to be consumed by SharePoint can inherit from, either the
SharePoint WebPart Base class
or the
ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart base class.
When inheriting from the SharePoint WebPart Base class your derived WebPart class will inherit from Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart. When inheriting from the ASP.NET 2.0 WebPart base class your derived WebPart class will inherit from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart. It is considered good practice to use the ASP.NET WebPart base class since the old base class is meant for backwards compatibility with previous version of SharePoint, however there are four exception when it is better to leverage functionality from the SharePoint WebPart base class:
Cross page connections
Connections between Web Parts that are outside of a Web Part zone
Client-side connections (Web Part Page Services Component)
Data caching infrastructure
(More...)

What is a SharePoint Solution File? How does it differ from WebPart .cab files in legacy development? What does it contain?

  
A SharePoint solution file is essentially a .cabinet file with all a developers ustom componets suffixed with a .wsp extension that aids in deployment. The big difference with SharePoint solution files is is that a solution:
allows deployment to all WFE's in a farm
is highly manageable from the interface allowing deployment, retraction, and versioning
Can package all types of assets like site definitions, feature definitions (and associated components), Webparts, etc.
Can provide Code Access Security provisioning to avoid GAC deployments
And much more..
