I have created a SPList named Pets having 2 fields petname[single line of text] and pettype[choice field] and created a new customform from this list using SP Designer 2010. Now I need to presaveaction and some jquery,spservices stuff in this form for validation and manipulation when save button is clicked. But I am not seeing any ID of the field for applying the jQuery and fetch the values.Am able to see the below code.

  • Can I create a separate ID/assign separate ID for each field in this form, just like we do in ASP.NET forms and visual web part using SP D?

           <tr>
                        <td width="190px" valign="top" class="ms-formlabel">
                            <H3 class="ms-standardheader">
                                <nobr>PetName</nobr>
                            </H3>
                        </td>
                        <td width="400px" valign="top" class="ms-formbody">
                            <SharePoint:FormField runat="server" 
                  id="ff2{$Pos}" ControlMode="New" FieldName="PetName" 
                 __designer:bind="
              {ddwrt:DataBind('i',concat('ff2',$Pos),'Value',
             'ValueChanged','ID',
               ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@PetName')}"/>
                            <SharePoint:FieldDescription runat="server" 
                     id="ff2description{$Pos}" FieldName="PetName" 
                 ControlMode="New"/>
                        </td>
                    </tr>
    

    currently this is my spd form looks like, ie the code for petname field. am confused by id="ff2{$Pos}".

  • Can i use this in my jQuery/PreSaveAction validation as it is? If not, whats the best way of implementing this assignment of field IDs?
  • I have saved the form and form is appeared with these 2 fields. If I want to add 3rd column say a checkboxlist through SD P, how to achieve this?

    I tried adding a new row and on the 2nd column I tried to insert a control abd added the dvcheckboxlist, but this action failed and my form becomes corrupted / shows error when clicked on add new item.

  •              <tr>
                        <td width="190px" valign="top" class="ms-formlabel">
                            <H3 class="ms-standardheader">
                                <nobr>selections</nobr>
                            </H3>
                        </td>
                        <td width="400px" valign="top" class="ms-formbody">
                            <SharePoint:FormField runat="server" 
                   id="ff4{$Pos}" ControlMode="New" FieldName="selections" 
                         __designer:bind="
                    {ddwrt:DataBind('i',concat('ff4',$Pos),'Value',
                  'ValueChanged','ID',
             ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@selections')}"/>
                            <SharePoint:FieldDescription runat="server" 
                        id="ff4description{$Pos}" FieldName="selections" 
                       ControlMode="New"/>
                        </td>
                    </tr>                       
    

    here, I am having multiple checkboxes, but in my presaveaction, how can I get the each & every ID of the checkboxes, such that, i can get the status of each checkboxes when submit button is clicked!

    Below is my F12 Dev tools section of checkboxlist.Assuming that, i need to port this code from one list to new list or new env.,i cant enter the same ids [ here ctl00_m_g_baff0aa2_5fdf_420b_ab45_b8235b35dcd3_ff4_1_ctl00_ctl00 ] to the new list as list ids would br diffeent for different lists. So is there a way i can specify a ID like id=chkboxforORCEBE" in my designer form such that, my jQuery validation is smooth.
