I currently have a external list with a column valued either 0, 1 or -1. I want to display different pictures for each value (like a status indicator). Is it possible to do so in SharePoint?

I'm using SharePoint2010.


Create a status indicator which an item in Status list. You can create status list using the following 2 options:

option 1: Create just a status list, after status list has been created then add indicators to the list.

Option 2: Create web part with Status list. This is a webpart which builds in A Status list automatically, so that all you need to do is add indicators. Then you can easily use the web part on a dashboard and other web page

Hope it help.

The following link is using javascript to display the indicator: http://www.learningsharepoint.com/2013/04/01/add-task-status-indicators-in-sharepoint-2013-using-js-link/

  • I'm very new to SharePoint. Can you explain in more detail? I tried making a status list based on the external list I have, but all it does is creating a single row indicating how many of the entire list is 0. I want one indicator for each row in my external list. Is there a way to do it? – Tengyu Liu Jun 17 '14 at 15:13
