Removing Custom Field Types RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking for a way to see the installed custom field types and a way to remove them.  So far I have not found anything in central admn or any stsadm  command to get rid of them.  I uninstalled the solutions involved, but there are two CFT still left.  They do not show up as installed features.

     

    I can of course go in and delete the xml file from TEMPLATE\XML and also remove the .ascx from _ControlTemplates and delete  the assembly from the GAC, but my experience has led me to believe that such hamfisted techniques usually cause more problems than they solve

  • If the custom fields were not installed as part of a solution package (i.e. via xcopy or a similar method) then the manual approach you described is the ony way to remove them short of writing custom code to do that work for you...
