Unable to add selected webpart(s)

  • Unable to add selected webpart(s) Stef Heyenrath

    I've created a Custom List ('Tooltips') in SharePoint. After this I used SPSource to reverse engineer the list into a feature.

    After installing and activating this feature, I want to add this list in a WebPart zone.

    When doing this, I get an error message :

    Tooltips: List View Web Part could not be added, list may be hidden.

    What's wrong with the list?

  • Order of operations? Are you trying to add it to the zone before the list was created?
