I am working on an event receiver inside my sharepoint server 2013. now inside the event receiver i use the following html code to build a link to the current item which cause the event receiver to fire, and send this link by email. now the current item for the event receiver can be a custom list item or a discussion board item:-
"<a href='" + properties.Web.Url + "/" + properties.ListItem.Url + "'>" + properties.ListItem["Title"] + "</a>"
now in-case of a Discussion board item the generated link will have the following
href, which will reference the item correctly :-
but in-case of a custom list item the
href will have the following url that end with
so now to fix this i have manually build the
href for the custom list item as follow (which will reference the
"<a href='" + properties.Web.Url + "/Lists/Projects/DispForm.aspx?ID="+properties.ListItem.ID + "'>" + properties.ListItem["Title"] + "</a>
but my question is why
properties.ListItem.Url inside my original code did not work for the custom list item (the generated url will end with
_.000), while it worked well for discussion board item ? is it a problem inside my code or it is a problem/issue inside how sharepoint reference the custom list items?
