CustomEdit Form

  Asked By: Loren    Date: Oct 01    Category: MOSS    Views: 632

Am trying to customize an edit form for MOSS custom list using SPD. I've read &
copied the many blogs, and I'd swear I did it 6 months ago, but now I cannot get
the customized edit form to be the default edit form.

1) I copyNpaste the default edit form, rename the copy
2) on the duplicate, I delete the WP, insert "custom list form"
3) make my mods, save the dup
4) from within SPD, view the mod form in browser - all is OK
5) I right clk on the list, go to Properties, associated files
6) go to edit form box, navigate to my mod form, choose it
7) hit apply, then OK

But now when I look at Properties of the list & its associated forms, it has
reverted to the standard edit form not my mod.

When you assign the new edit form  in the associated files dialog make sure you
are associating it to the content type and not to the folder. If your list  name
is higher than "F" for example "Tasks" as opposed to "Calendar" you'll find the
default selection on the associated files page is to assign it to the Folder
content type, not the native content type for the list. You need to select the
right content type before you click OK.

Otherwise, you get no error, but it doesn't do anything because the form was
assigned to the wrong content type.

The letters just mean I'm a really good test taker. And actually, that's not
even all of them.

But the reason I could answer your question. In fact the reason I can answer a
lot of the questions I do is because its a mistake I've made before. In this
case its a mistake I made in the middle of a demo in front of a class full of
students. I didn't figure it out until the next morning.
