How to control which library fields are in the NewForm.aspx in application templates? RRS feed

  • Question

  • WSS 3.0 We've been starting to use the Project Management & IT Team Workspace templates to get some basic project management going. In customizing the columns in the "projects" library, we've noticed a descrepancy on what fields show up when you create a new project. At first it was maybe based around which fields were required, but we have some fields required that do not show up on the "new" form, and some non-required fields that do show up. Is there a method to which fields are available when creating a new item? Thanks in advance-

  • Hi,

    This happens when you use multiple content types in your list/library.

    Some fields fall under one and some on another.

    However at the top of the newform.aspx you will find a drop down as Type where you can switch between these content types and can provide values to required fields.

    In an alternate way you can disable content type and then you can create your columns. In this case you will be able to see all of them in newform.aspx .

    I hope this will help you out.
