Custom Action RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our consultant turned on a feature that enables a custom action on our picture library.  This feature is specific to the a picture folder. We need to enable this feature on another folder in the picture library and cannot figure out where this is turned on. The item should be displaying under the new menu for the folder. The feature is turned on, however it is not showing in the menu. 

    Can anyone help with this? The libraries are in the root of our sitecollection. If you need further information, please let me know. Here is some information from the elements.xml

  • According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/ms460194.aspx :


    Optional Text. Specifies the identifier of the list or item content type that this action is associated with, or the file type or programmatic identifier (ProgID).



    Optional Text. Specifies the registration attachment for a per-item action. Possible values include:








    So, you are using List RegistrationType, your RegistrationID should contain the identifier of the list.

    And by picture folder, i think you mean picture library, which is a list.

    And according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263911(v=office.12).aspx: feature is scoped to Farm, Web Application, site collection or site.  Your picture folder can be on different site.
