A Content By Query Web Part displays a dynamic view of content on a page

  • The Web Part has two major aspects: query and presentation. Query determines what content you want to show and presentation determines how you want to style and present the content.

The Content By Query Web Part uses XSL style sheets to render these columns by default.

  • If you want to query for custom content types and render specific columns from those content types in the Web Part, you must perform some minor customization in the .webpart file.

  • Edit the properties in the Web Part file to display custom fields. To access the .webpart file for the Web Part, on the Web Part's Edit menu, click Export.

  • In the .webpart file, locate the CommonViewFields property. Use this property to specify the additional fields that you want to display in the Web Part. Add the internal names of the columns and the type.

    property name="CommonViewFields" type="string">KB_x0020_Title,Text;Product;

  • This markup requests the Product column, to make the data in the columns available for rendering

  • Export the database to use it in your SharePoint

    -To change the presentation for given column you have to make changes in .xsl file

  • Hey Amit, m Not Understand the .Xsl Part, Image not Display Properly On Above Link, U Have Any Other Link Or Explain That Part To Me. Feb 18, 2015 at 11:38

  • Amit, Currently m Edit The Property in exported File <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string">InternalColumnNameGoesHere, FieldType</property> THen Upload Again In WebPArt, THen After That Download The ItemStyle.Xsl Then Add Some Line In It Above the </xsl:stylesheet> Feb 18, 2015 at 12:15
  • <xsl:template name="CustomStyle" match="Row[@Style='VendorCustomStyle']" mode="itemstyle"> <html> <table width="100%"> <xsl:if test="count(preceding-sibling::*)=0"> <tr> <td width="8%" valign="top"><div class="item"><b>Name </b></div></td> </tr> </xsl:if> <tr> <td width="12%" valign="top"><div class="item"><xsl:value-of select="@Title" /></div></td> </tr> </table> </html> </xsl:template> Feb 18, 2015 at 12:16
  • After that Save the file, go to the Style Library folder and upload the updated file to XSL Style Sheets folder and click on save button. Now right click the ItemStyle file and publish a Major Version. Feb 18, 2015 at 12:18

1)Open ItemStyle.xsl

2)Add Template just like DisplayTemplate And give Proper Name(Currently given Name='MyFirst')

3)Add Variable After name="DisplayTitle"/> Currently i have two Columns MobileNo And Address

    <xsl:variable name="Address"><xsl:value-of select="@Address"></xsl:value-of></xsl:variable>

  <div class="item link-item">
    <xsl:call-template name="OuterTemplate.CallPresenceStatusIconTemplate"/>
    <a href="{$SafeLinkUrl}" title="{@LinkToolTip}">
      <xsl:if test="$ItemsHaveStreams = 'True'">
        <xsl:attribute name="onclick">
          <xsl:value-of select="@OnClickForWebRendering"/>
      <xsl:if test="$ItemsHaveStreams != 'True' and @OpenInNewWindow = 'True'">
        <xsl:attribute name="onclick">
          <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="$OnClickTargetAttribute"/>
      <xsl:value-of select="$DisplayTitle"/>
    </a> - <span><xsl:value-of select="$MobileNo"></xsl:value-of></span>
