  • Custom XML Document Content Type with ASP.NET Forms in MOSS 2007/WSS 3.0 Stuart Whiteford

    I'd like to create a custom content type in SharePoint 2007 (WSS 3.0) that inherits from the existing XML Document content type (i.e. an InfoPath form) but I want to use custom ASP.NET forms to edit the XML. Is this possible and, if so, how?

  • This is mainly a verification question as I have been fighting with an issue for a couple of days now. I have two lists derived from 2 custom content types. Both content types used the task base content type. Each of the derived content types have custom form rendering templates. I am using a custom usercontrol with codebehind added to the .ascx page as a control to redraw the forms differently... did on the other form. I am wondering if it is because both lists share the same type number (107) or if it might be something else. So does each list need to have a custom type number or does

  • I've encountered the strangest problem. I've got two features: ContentTypes: contains a couple of custom fields and a content type (based on plain ol' 0x01) called Withdrawals that uses them. Scoped to Site. Registration: contains a ListTemplate and a ListInstance that just modifies a basic Custom List to enable content types and add my custom content type. Scoped to Web. Here's what's happening. When I activate ContentTypes, the content type and field are deployed as expected into my site collection. When I activate Registration, the list is provisioned and the content type is added

  • I am trying to get the CAML for a custom content type that I am creating. What I am really doing is creating the content type in Visual Studio 2010 and then deploying that content type to my sandbox. At that point, I am modifying the content type using the SharePoint interface (i.e changing advanced settings, adding columns, etc). What I would like to do, is after I have made my changed, update my CAML in Visual Studio to match my changes. I want to do this because I am creating custom fields and content types for my project and want to create a solution with these customizations. Since

  • I am using Microsoft Search Server 2008 (based on SharePoint Server 2007) + C# + .Net 3.5 + VSTS 2008 + ASP.Net to develop a web application which invokes Search Server 2008 Web Services when a button in the html page is pressed. I am using the following code to query content from Microsoft Search Server 2008. My question is how to display the search results from the DataSet retrieved? I did not find a very good sample from Google. protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { //The string containing the keyword to use in the search string keywordString

  • (I have also asked this question on Stack Overflow) I have a SharePoint feature I'm using to add some custom aspx files to the Pages Library. When I activate the feature, I can visit the pages in-browser and they are visible in SPDesigner, but when I "View All Site Content" they are not there. Why is this the case? The Feature's Elements File: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <.../Pages/Example.aspx When I "View All Site Content" I am looking at the contents of the "Pages" list: http://myserver:PORT/subsite/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx

  • I have tried to create a custom form template but without success. I have followed several tutorials but it still does not use the custom template. If I change the template id to override the 'ListForm' it works. So I'm thinking that I've done something wrong in the content type definition. Here is the code: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <Elements xmlns="http...;ContentType ID="0x01009dea68f3be5946789ab1a8ac699fcb8f" Name="UnderstadingContentTypes - MyContentType" Group="Custom Content Types" Description="My Content Type

  • or automatic creation of an accident list item. Now the process will need to have a set of official forms filled in by various people. This is where I find SharePoint limiting me with it's document centric nature. Typical workflows are about the document, like getting it approved or reviewed or some such. In this case the workflow needs to create new documents, InfoPath forms perhaps. Using task forms...SharePoint workflow by nature is document centric in that you have to have a 'thing'; A object for the workflow to run on. This object can be a document, form or simple list item but this thing has

  • Let's say you want to build a custom ASP.NET CRM app and use SharePoint as backend document storage. Is it possible to redistribute WSS 3.0 / SharePoint Foundation 2010 along with your custom application from a legal perspective. How do you incorporate WSS installation into your MSI or any other package. In essence, just like SharePoint can deploy SQL Express as database backend I am wondering if I could deploy WSS as mine backend.

  • From SharePoint Designer it is possible to modify the edit and display list forms. From the ribbon in ListSettings tab select Design Forms In InfoPath and choose the content type you want to modify forms for. InfoPath will open with a generated form and the form can be modified. My question is when you publish the form from InfoPath to a SharePoint List is it posible to export the list and import it to list in SharePoint Foundation or are the forms dependent on InfoPath ?
