You might know this situation, when you like, for example, pass a query string to a modal dialog to preselect values in a list form. With SharePoint Designer or custom development this is an easy task. What if you like to customize the form without permanently modifying the form itself?
In this post series I will show my newly discovered way to have better control over forms.
How come? Well over the last week I had the request once again, to pre-fill a list form with values from another list. So I was thinking to myself that there must be a better ways to do this task. Lucky me I found one.
In the next posts I will first introduce you to the basic concept of this kind of customization.
The series is planned to contain the parts:
- Part 1 – Passing data to a modal dialog
- Part 2 – Form customization
- Part 3 – Show related information in a modal dialog
- Part 4 – Can I add another one too?
Hope you enjoy this series and maybe I will add some additional chapters at the end.
