After Sharepoint 365 update (end 09.11.2012) resources string in list definition start display as:


Field definition:

<Field Name="SortOrder" 
   Type="Number" Decimals="0" Required="TRUE">


<Field Name="SortOrder"

The same result. How to resolve?

If there's nothing you did to "break" that, I suggest opening a Service Request through MS online portal or hard coding the DisplayName. Hard coding is a dirty workaround if you need to get it fixed quickly, and not generally a good idea.

Or it just might start working tomorrow if you wait. Wonders of SharePoint Online.

Hello, how to open "a Service Request through MS online portal"? – user1167761 Nov 12 '12 at 12:50
+! for the "Or it just might start working tomorrow if you wait" this should be the mantra of SharePoint Online. – Hugh Wood Nov 12 '12 at 15:51
Added link to Online Portal where you open Service Requests. You need to be administrator, though. – Jussi Palo Nov 14 '12 at 12:56
Downvote if you like, but Online is a black box and it is impossible to provide detailed answers. – Jussi Palo Nov 14 '12 at 13:02
