September 20, 2011 4 comments

Here is a way to upload a list template to all the site collections. Instead of going to all the site collections and upload the template manually .. use the script below to add them using Powershell

$GetSiteCollections = Get-SPWebApplication | Get-SPSite -Limit ALL
## Add the List Template to the all the Site Collections
foreach($GetSiteCollection in $GetSiteCollections)
$web = $GetSiteCollection.OpenWeb();
$spfolder = $web.getfolder("_catalogs\lt")
$spfileCollection = $spfolder.Files
$file = Get-Item c:\Temp\MyListTemplate.stp
spfileCollection.Add"MyListTemplate.stp", $file.OpenRead(),$true)

Copy value from column to another using JQuery

August 19, 2011 1 comment

Copy the value from one column to another column on a New List Item Form.

In this example, I am populating the End Date Field with the Start Date Field value when user is filling out a meeting request form in SharePoint.

Add the following code on the page under “PlaceHolderMain” tag.

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Shared Documents/Javascript/jquery/jquery.js">

var strStartDate = $("input[title='Start Date']");
$("input[title='End Date']").val(strStartDate.val());

Comments History not showing on Custom Display Form

April 4, 2011 2 comments

Creating Custom Display Form in SharePoint Designer for a List does not show history for Comments field by default.
Here is the fix for that:


<xsl: select=”@V3Comments” value-of disable-output-escaping=”yes”  />


<SharePoint:AppendOnlyHistory runat=”server” ControlMode=”Display” FieldName=”V3Comments” ItemId=”{@ID}”  />

This should fix the issue and start showing all the comments added in the Comments Field.
