I must set a Value in Items Adding, it should be start Value of element. How could I set a Value. Like Default Value But that will be number User1, User2, User3 To Unical identyfy User.

I have got code, how to set start value of elementco list "Jawna":

    /// </summary>
    public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)
        this.EventFiringEnabled = false;
        if (properties.List.Title == "Jawna")
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite(properties.WebUrl))
                using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
                    SPList FirstItem = properties.Web.Lists["Jawna"];
                    SPList lstOtherList = properties.Web.Lists["Niejawna"];
                    SPListItem item = lstOtherList.Items.Add();
                    web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
                    item["UnikalnaNazwa"] = "User" + Convert.ToInt32((FirstItem.ItemCount)+1);
                    item["Title"] = properties.AfterProperties["Title"].ToString();
                    item["B"] = properties.AfterProperties["B"].ToString();
                    item["Status"] = properties.AfterProperties["Status"].ToString();
  • First of all, the code above is an ItemAdded event receiver, not an ItemAdding (or you have missed the point of naming your methods correctly) May 26, 2015 at 11:18

I found this link always to be very useful, when it came to understand SharePoint EventReceiver. Looking a the link, you'll find out that it's better to use properties.ListItem["Title"] instead of Afterproperties, because that way you'll get a value for sure. But it should be working anyway (if a value is being added in the first item). Also you shouldn't forget to set "web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;" at the end.

From what I see you're trying to add a new item to List B for every item which gets added to List A. Besides some optimizations which jump to my eye, I don't see why your code shouldn't be working.

Could you please explain your problem in more detail and what you're trying to achieve.

  • I mast have a set start value when the popap show on the screen.

  • If you want to have a default value for a certain column/field when you open up the NewForm.aspx you have to use Javascript as there is no way to achieve this using the SharePoint Server Object Model. Have a look at this link to see if this fits your needs.

  • Could you please follow the link and read what's written there? It's part of the dynamic forms and contains all the required information to do what you want. I don't think it's necessary to paste the code here.
