I am using Visual Studio 2013. I am using SharePoint online 2013. I am creating a "SharePoint-hosted" App. I have added a List to the project called "Technology". I added a field called "Technology Description". I gave it a type of "Multiple Lines of Text". I published the solution and went to
https://spurl/debugsite/SPApp/Lists/Technology/ and then clicked on "New Item" but I do not get the Rich Text Toolbar that I would like to have there.
Back in Visual Studio I do not see any place for me to make this Multiple Lines of Text rich text. I tried to edit the
"Schema.xml" file associated with this list and to the
Field element with the
Name attributes of
Technology Description I added the following attributes:
RichText="true" RichTextMode="FullHtml" but that doesn't seem to have helped.
I also want to allow the list columns to be modified by the user after deployment of this solution; however, the "List Settings" button does not appear when managing the list.
Therefore the questions that I have are:
How can I get this "Technology Description" field to show the Rich Text toolbar when the field is being edited in the standard / default New Item / Edit Item actions
How can I make it such that when the solution is deployed the user is able to go in to the List Settings for the list and add columns if they so choose after the solution has been deployed to their SharePoint site?
In a nutshell I want to be able to make it so that the Lists which I add to the Solution in Visual Studio will behave more like Custom Lists generated from the "Site Contents" -> "Add an App" -> "Custom List".
