Using calculated column to write html has been well known since SharePoint 2007. I always like to do this because it does not require complex customization on xslt or even SharePoint designer. Today I check out this blog which has more good examples: http://sharepointwijzer.nl/sharepoint-blog/tech/icc-html-calculated-column-sharepoint-view/#ICCadvanced
I would like to share a simple solution to highlight rows in SharePoint list using calculated field.
Simple. Hope this save the time many out there seeking for quick solution.
This is quick workaround to change the default “Save” button to “Send” or any word, in the default SharePoint list form such as newitem.aspx.
1. Go the Edit mode of the form. (List Tools(Ribbon) > Form Web Parts > Default New Form)
2. Add a Content Editor Web Part and enter the following java script.
3. Save and done.
No need InfoPath. No need SharePoint Designer.
Require custom Display form, remain default New and Edit item form for a SharePoint custom list.
Create custom InfoPath form to replace default DispForm.aspx.
SharePoint list automatically associate edit form from InfoPath. Using SharePoint Designer to set the default form does not work.
- Go to List Settings > Form Settings > choose “Use the default SharePoint form” without checking “Delete the InfoPath Form from the server”. This will reset the list to use back all the default form.
- Go to SharePoint Designer, select displayifs.aspx and Set as Default. This will set the InfoPath form as the default display form.
Found the solution here.
Creating external content type and external list is rather straight forward. But then, I came across this “Access denied by Business Data Connectivity” today. I got this error even I am using the site collection admin account.
The solution is to configure the permission on the BCS Entity. Found the solution from this site: http://zimmergren.net/technical/access-denied-by-business-data-connectivity-solution
