Why do you need mappings First things first: let me explain, why do you need to use mappings at all. With some accuracy it can be said, that a Choice field in SharePoint represents a DropDownList control. And in the ASP.Net DropDownList control, each item (ListItem, to be precise) has two essential properties: Text and Value. Obviously, Value property acts ...

If you're trying to get cell data from Excel (or any other table source) into a SharePoint list's Checkbox column in Datasheet view, the values in each source field must be delimited with the semicolon and hash characters (;#). Each cell's data must also have a leading and trailing semicolon/hash pair. This last bit is counter any other delimiting style I've ...

It is not supported for multiselect fields (i.e. fields represented in the normal UI as check boxes). The following quote is for 2013 but the same rules apply for the ListData.svc. You can filter on the client side, though, depending on how you represent the data and the controls you use. Queries for multi-value lookup fields and users Because multi-...

Go to the column drop down list in question. At the first entry on the list do a return to create a blank space. Inside that blank space place your cursor and press and hold down the ALT key while typing 0129 on the NUMERIC KEYPAD. This will enter another type of “blank character” that SharePoint cannot wipe away. In the Default Entry setting do the same. ...

The Right Way To Do This Using: SharePoint2013 Current Answer Not Acceptable I've seen several answer similar to the above. Everyone saying use ALT0129 or the blank font character. I found these workarounds unacceptable because they would create a disconnect from the default SharPoint column filter (Empty) and instead create a new check box that is just ...

I've done what Unnie describes above before. First you create a list and populate it with all your choice values. Then you configure your list people will add items to by creating a new column of type lookup that points to the list you just created using the Title column. You set it to allow fill in votes. Then in a workflow, you check if a fill in option ...

If you have pairing defined, you can use mapping method: var map = new Object(); // or var map = {}; map[myKey1] = "subCat1,subCat2"; map[myKey2] = "subCat3,subCat4"; function get(k) { return map[k]; } //Attach event with dropdown selector, of main category. $("#categorySelectorId").change(function(){ var subCategory = $("#subCategorySelectId"); ...

You can use the GetFieldValue method of the field class if you are unsure of the actual type of the underling value. For example: item["MyChoiceField"] = listIstance.Fields["MyChoiceField"].GetFieldValue("Choice1");

The only solution not involving code is: Create the column as: Choice Not required Unique Choices: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 (not None) Drop-Down Menu Clear default value That'll allow the users to create any number of entries without a priority, but only one for each of the 5 values. This seems is like you want it to work. BUT once an entry has been assigned a ...

All credit goes to Xiang Zeng for providing the answer, many thanks! This is a bug in Sharepoint. However, there is a workaround. Directly modifying the SchemaXml property to change the choices is allowed: public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { base.ItemAdding(properties); string itemTitle = properties....

SPFieldChoice has a property named FieldRenderingControl. Using reflector you can find this code in the FieldRedneringControl property: .... switch (this.EditFormat) { case SPChoiceFormatType.Dropdown: control = new DropDownChoiceField(); break; case SPChoiceFormatType.RadioButtons: control = new RadioButtonChoiceField(); ...

Retrieve choice field value in Rest API by attaching 'value' to the field name. for e.g. if your field name is Flags, use the term FlagsValue in the filter string. This works if the choice field is not a multi select field. Your url should be like http://tssites/departments/appdev/_vti_bin/ListData.svc/TeamCalendar?$expand=Flags&$filter=FlagsValue eq '...

Descerning the original values from the user filled-in is easy, as the additional values entered by a user are not added to the original choice field definition, which will remain unaltered. So, in order to retrieve all the list items where the choice field value is not one of the predefined values, you need to build a CAML query with the NEQ operator on ...

Try this $(document).ready(function(){ $('#ctl00_m_g_de548742_27f6_4e71_b3ec_2d9a1ecca117_ff151_ctl00_DropDownChoice').on('change', function(){ var accountType = this.value; if(accountType == 'Military') { $('.milShow').show(); $('.ctrShow').hide(); $('.civShow').hide(); } if(...

I have seen this happen before (when a programmer without SharePoint knowledge 'fixed' a problem with imported/pasted data and emptied/deleted the existing definition of DropDown values The underlying database stores anything that is written to it, so modern JSOM code can write values to a 'DropDown' field without checking those values actually match with ...

You can't do it like this because Lookups are internally based on reference-ids and not the values. As Formulas can not expand these complex types (same applies to: Multiple Select, [Me] and Person Columns) you can not use them in Calculated Columns Your workaround is to use Workflows to read the Complex type value and write it to a basic Text column, ...

You have to bind field value like below. In below Sample is your field's internal name. ThisItem.Sample.Value or Sample.Value will also work.

Is it possible to update information from one choice field into another choice field in a different list? Yes, it's possible and I applied this scenario multiple times on my side. But you should be aware of the value of first choice field should be within the list of values of the second choice field in the other list. For Example The Choice field ...

I am not 100% sure if this should be posted as an answer or a comment (but the question doesn't include a question). You can't get it without the #. The separator is actually ",#": a comma followed by a pound. Independently from SharePoint, Excel does handle drop down lists (choice fields), but does NOT handle drop downs with multiple selections. When ...

To set a choice field value, you need to set it as 1 or 0. Like - oListItem.set_item('emailcheck', 1); Also, once "updated", you need to execute it using executeQueryAsync to actually send data to the server and add a list item. Modify your code as below: function createListitem(){ var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(_spPageContextInfo....

Probably no help but this could be done as a lookup to another (very short) SP list, with 'Yes' in the looked up column. Yes can then be selected but it's also possible to delete it to be blank.

This looks to be a compatibility issue with .docx documents being used in older versions of SharePoint (ex. 2007). https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/6799e3cc-99e9-4548-8484-90d51d77a505/metadata-fields-not-saving-from-edit-properties-form

In the end I have followed the direction proposed by Stuart and marked this still another SharePoint blackhole, so I have left any hope of using this CAML tag as last for now. During my research I had a look at many classes in the framework but I cannot find anything related to using the mapping "attribute", so I can only assume that it was an uncompleted ...

There is an explanation how to fix your problem, but I'm not sure that this solution is good, because you should change sharepoint fiels. I think that the best way is to change logic of your application.
