Open custom application page on list edit item RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one list & a custom application page, when i click on Edit Item in the List Item Context Menu, i want to open my Custom application page in Popup.

    Also, it should pass the Item ID as query string to the application page.

    How can we achieve this?

  • Hi,

    Use the given code to change default editform for list

    SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;
    web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
    SPList list = web.Lists["My List"];
    SPContentType ct = list.ContentTypes["Item"];
    ct.EditFormUrl = "_layouts/editform.aspx";
    ct.NewFormUrl = "_layouts/newform.aspx";
    ct.DisplayFormUrl = "_layouts/dispform.aspx";
    list.Update();web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;


    to  pass ItemID as querystring pass itemid={ItemId} in the Edit form URL after ?.

    i.e. "_layouts/editform.aspx?itemid={ItemID}";

    Thanks.... ________________ Baba (MCTS, MCPD)
