New button link

  Asked By: Elton    Date: Jan 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1782

Was working on a custom list form for well a list! Wanted to
change the new button on the list to point to the this form instead of the
standard NewForm.aspx, (doing this all in spdesigner sp2 btw) sounds simple went
to the list right clicked --> properties --> supporting files tab --> clicked
browse... button --> selected my form _NewForm.aspx --> clicked ok button.
Nothing happened! Go back to properties etc (same steps) box is say that it is
pointed to the NewForm.aspx and not my custom form I have selected? Did this
round robin four or five times then thought maybe it was a content type issue so
I selected the content type for in the drop down! So it changed but now I'm
getting a URL can not be found error when clicking the new button on the list?
Questions do I have to do an IIS reset? Where is the value truly stored at for
this attribute (in 12hive in xml file maybe? If so, which one?)

David's blog, for prevention of issue and best practice see SPDesigner support
teams blog):

I would try the IIS reset 1st, also make sure the form  is in the forms library.

Make sure you are picking the content type in the supporting files tab when you
pick the new form. Each content type in a library can have its own NewForm.aspx
and unfortunately the supporting files tab includes folders as a content type
in the list. If your default content type starts with a letter that comes after
'f' then Folder will be the default when you open the tab. Picking a different
New form  will not generate an error, but it won't work unless you change that
