I want to add additional fields to my enterprisewiki.aspx page layout, these fields are :-

  • created

  • created by

  • version

so i try editing the page layout inside SharePoint designer, but i can not find a reference for these columns inside the columns toolbox. so i try finding how the following default message is constructed,:-

enter image description here

and i find the following default code :-

<SharePoint:FormattedString FormatText="<%$Resources:wss,wikidiff_lastmodifiedby%>" runat="server">
                        <SharePoint:FormField id="modifiedFieldCtrl" ControlMode="Display" FieldName="Modified" runat="server"/>
                        <SharePoint:UserField id="editorFieldCtrl" ControlMode="Display" FieldName="Editor" runat="server"/>

so i change the above default code to be as follow, and i get the Created date field:-

<SharePoint:FormField id="createdFieldCtrl" ControlMode="Display" FieldName="Created" runat="server"/>

so my question is how i can follow the same approach to display the Created BY & version values?


Try following:

   <SharePoint:UserField id="modifiedFieldCtrl" ControlMode="Display" FieldName="Author" runat="server"/>
            <SharePoint:FieldValue FieldName="Version" runat="server" ControlMode="Display" DisableInputFieldLabel="true"/>

Custom Form Does Not Display "Created By" value

  • thanks a lot for the great help , finally i got these working. but my question now is why these fields are not available in the "Page fields" or inside the "control fields" toolbox inside the SharePoint designer ? – john Gu Sep 16 '14 at 11:44

    No idea about that. You can ask a fresh question for this, so that somebody else can help on this better. – Aanchal Sep 16 '14 at 11:47
