Add a BDC column in a page layout

  Asked By: Diane    Date: Aug 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1243

I have a BDC column in the Pages list and a I have also a site content type in this list. I have a page layout associated with this content type. In this page layout, I'm able to add metadatas from the content type to the layout but not the BDC column. As you know, BDC column cannot be added to site columns nor to site content types. So, the BDC column does not appear in the choice I have in SPD when I add others content type columns to the page layout.

I'm wondering if you can help find a way to achive this?

There will be no out of the box types  that would display your BDC column  data. You would need to create a control or web part to do this. You would then need to call the EntityInstanceIdEncoder class as in this post to get and set the value:
