SharePoint 2003: List - Collapse group by default not working

  Asked By: Miguel    Date: Jun 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3271

Issue: I create a list of links. Using FrontPage 2003, I convert
the list to XSLT Data View, and check Collapse group by default.

In the browser the list show the plus sign next to the categories,
but they are expanded instead of collapsed. If I click on the plus
or minus signs, they do not work at first, and then they work after
several tries. If I refresh the page, the lists are expanded
again. I even cleared the cache in IE.




1) Create a custom list named Quick Links in a SharePoint Team
site.



Category => (Text) Links and Resources

Link => (Hyperlink)



2) Here is my list in SharePoint:



ID
Resource
Category

1
Test Link
Links

2
SharePoint
Links

3
SharePoint Sites
Links

4
Microsoft SharePoint - Home Page
Resource

5
Sample SharePoint Site
Resource




3) Add the Quick Links as a web part on the home page.



4) Open the home page with FrontPage 2003 to edit the web part.



5) Convert the web part to XSLT Data View.



6) Modify the properties to the following:



a) No Toolbar

b) Sort and Group via Category.

c) Group Properties



(1) Show group header

(2) Collapse group by default



7) Save and exit

8) In the browser the list show the plus sign next to the
categories, but they are expanded instead of collapsed. If I click
on the plus or minus signs, they do not work at first, and then they
work after several tries. If I refresh the page, the lists are
expanded again. I even cleared the cache in IE.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Thanks for your help with a way of using Front Page to make some
quick launchs work. I will try it. Have you had the same problem
with quick launch not working  in SPPS 2003.

I was able to get the Quick Launch links to work fine, but now it
does not work.

I think that the following error message it causing the problem.

I receive the following error message when opening a SharePoint Team
site in FrontPage 2003, after double-clicking on a web part.


The IntializeStrings method returned an incorrect number of
strings. Note that these strings must not be null.

Have you seen this? Any thoughts? I can't seem to find anything on
this.

“The IntializeStrings method returned an incorrect number of

Error message was a confirmed bug in the TR release of SPS.

The resolution or workaround for this problem was the following



1 Reset IIS

2 Open the Portal Home page in FrontPage

3 Close FrontPage and save



After this process you should be able to edit other area’s or team sites



I know this isn’t the exact same scenario as I assume your using the RTM versions of SPS and FrontPage?

Thanks for your reply. I tried the IIS reset fix, and received the
same problem.

Any thoughts?
