I have a list that uses three different content types. Content type management is enabled for it.

Now, when I create my own view, and set the fields' property LinkToItem to TRUE, the links in the view all lead to the default display form, not the display form of the content type of the item the user clicked.

I have tried everything, but the official documentation is poor and incomplete, there is no code completion in the Designer, and I can't find a way to edit the links. Help?

For now I'm using a built-in column that all lists inherit from the Item content type. It's the LinkTitle. It's a calculated field that automatically adds the correct content type in the querystring, so it solves my problem.
