Custom Field Types

  Asked By: Vaughn    Date: Feb 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 900

I was able to successfully create a few custom field types . I can use them in any list without a hitch.

There was a known bug in that when you went to edit the properties of a
column using a custom field type, MOSS does not remember the default
property values. You have to either cancel the changes or re-enter the
default values.

Does anyone know if Microsoft has provided a solution or if there's a
programmatic workaround?

WSS SP1, which is now being beta tested, should solve this problem (but
I haven't tested it yet). If you need something sooner, there is a way
to capture the property values  when the CFT is first created so that
they are available to set the controls on the property form, but it will
be a non-starter later this year. It is possible that there is a hotfix

Any good place to follow service pack developments for WSS or MOSS?
I'd like to keep an eye on the development.

I'm also wondering - since WSS and MOSS are technically separate
packages, I assume that service packs for WSS won't be necessary for a
MOSS install - is that right?

Check out Microsoft's beta site to see if you can join the SP beta for
Office Server.

Since MOSS is built on top of the WSS platform, You should expect to
apply WSS Service Packs to both MOSS and WSS installs.

I don't believe it's been announced one way or the other, but WSSv2 SPs
have been pre-requisites for SPS2003 SPs. So it's not a stretch to
think that MOSS might treat them the same way...
