Add functionality to AllItems.aspx

  Asked By: Sudhir    Date: May 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3180

I'm looking for direction on the best approach to add
functionality to the AllItems.aspx page.

Should I use feature overloading, edit the AllItems.aspx
directly, make a copy of AllItems.aspx and point to instead, or use
some other way to add functionality?

I would like to add icons that can perform actions for each list item.
Something like this screenshot where the action icon has been added
with a popup menu:

Why not use the existing drop-down menu  and expand that? You can add
and remove content on that menu using a CustomAction feature  as
described in my article at SharePoint Magazine:

If you want to add  your own column you should be prepared for some
development work, either by making your own field type to house more
complex logic or by creating your own view schema code.

You wouldn't add  this functionality  bye editing the AllItems.aspx. You would
add it by creating a custom column and adding it to the list. The grid you see
on the allitems.aspx page  is a list  view web part and can't be edited directly.
You could replace that with a DataView web part, but the columns there still
come from the list you are displaying.
