FileRef and FileLeafRef in a list view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want my list (blog posts) to include FileRef and FileLeafRef fields. It's not a document library, so I think that's why these fields get thrown away or something (the content type and list definition have them, I checked with PowerShell). I checked the list definition, view definitions and there's no word about those fields but in the AllPosts view it is included. Why? How? How do I tell SharePoint to pass them to XSLT?

    This has been really bugging me for a week, so at least an explanation why it is that way and why I can't do anything about it would be really appriciated.

  • let me give a try

    According to my understanding, FileRef and FileLeafRef are built in fields of SharePoint because of which you are not having control on these fields

    FileLeaRef:Identifies a field that contains information about the server-relative URL for the file node that is associated with the specified SharePoint Foundation object.

    FileRef:Identifies a field that contains information about the server-relative URL for the specified SharePoint Foundation object.

    these are content types associated to a folder.

  • I think that's not answering the question. What about "Title", "Created", "Created By", "Modified", "Modified By"? Aren't those a built-in fields?

    I think still need to find the reason why these fields are hidden from Create View columns.
