This problem is caused by differences in the SourceID property of the metadata fields. If you compare the value of SourceID on a field of a content type in one library with the same field of a content type in another library you will see that they differ, and they are used inside the Word document when referencing the metadata field.
The solution is to set ...
I found the best way of accomplishing this was to create a workflow and use the workflow initiation form to capture all the necessary meta data, and then create the document via the workflow itself, inserting the corresponding fields from the initiation form into the document columns.
The popup is indeed part of the Lync features. Lync installs a plugin (for 2010 it was an Active X one, but in 2013 I have seen presence in Chrome so I guess it is a bit changed) that scans websites for a specific type of markup (that SharePoint for example uses around names and images) and then applies for example the presence icons!
On hover of those ...
You must have wait for some time to check if the file is ready to use or not.
Means you need to wait till lock status SPFile.SPLockType.None becomes true.
Please check below code which applies System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000) for file to unlock.
if (SPContext.Current == null)
//If the initial file length is 0, pause the ...
My experience is that by default uploaded files remain checked out until all required metadata fields have been provided. The user cannot check the document in unless they fill in the fields. As long as the document is checked out, only the user who uploaded it will be able to see it.
Scenario: Document Library with two content types, one is the default ...
I've just made a small test of difference ways to create a word document in the file system and then use it to programatically create documents in a document library with properties.
Create not using SharePoint
Create document/template from scrach in Word. Add Custom properties. Add Quick Part using Field|DocProperty|Property. Save to file system
I've had the same problem in two document libraries in two different farms. All other fields worked fine in DIP except managed metadata fields.
I don't know what have caused this problem for these document libraries. Fixed by adding new dummy managed metadata column temporarily in the list and removing it afterwards.
CoreInvoke('createNewDocumentWithRedirect2',event,'http:.... //there are more parameters with site Url, document template Url etc.
so you can do it the same way.
Open the default view in a browser and view the source. Search for "Create a new 'YourContentType'", take CoreInvoke() and use it with an A tag. It should ...
The example demonstrates how to specify list item properties (Content Type in this case) while uploading the file:
var targetList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle(listTitle);
var fileInfo = new FileCreationInformation()
Content = fileContent,
Overwrite = true,
Url = fileUrl
var uploadFile = targetList.RootFolder.Files.Add(...
I don't think you can disable the DIP. The only setting available through the UI is to force the apparition of the DIP: go to the CT settings, "Document Information Panel settings", and ensure "Always show DIP..." is checked or unchecked.
With that, the DIP should show up only if a required field is needed (and maybe also at initial doc creation, I'm not ...
Make sure that the Opening Documents in the Browser has been set to Open in the browser
Go to the Form Library to which you published the InfoPath form template.
From the above ribbon > Click Library setting > Advanced Setting
On the Form Library Advanced Settings: page under the Browser-enabled Documents category, choose Open in the browser
In some ...
As another option, perhaps you could have your users fill out the metadata within the actual document itself using Quick Parts. This would work if your content type has a custom MS Word document template attached to it. Your users would see the Quick Part as a field that they need to fill out within the form content. When they save the form, the Quick ...
DIP will not allow more then 256 characters for a field if the field has the default False value for UnlimitedLengthInDocumentLibrary.
If you set UnlimitedLengthInDocumentLibrary to true then DIP should allow unlimited length.
Set UnlimitedLengthInDocumentLibrary to True and update the field.
You can do that with PowerShell.
$web = Get-SPWeb webUrl
Using SPD you can create another edit form but restrict access to it so only users with a certain permission level can use the new form. You could then disable the field in the standard form so normal users can see it but not change it.
You could potentially add some jQuery to the form to enable or disable the field depending on the user but getting user ...
An InfoPath content type and a document content type are two different things.
InfoPath forms can be published as a content type, but they will be InfoPath forms. An item created from an InfoPath form content type will be an XML document.
You cannot easily use InfoPath forms to edit the metadata of a document content type. It's different with lists, where ...
When you open the document that you have pulled off the SharePoint server (as that normally by default causes the DIP to open) and save the document or template to your machine, you just need to run the inspection function within word (I image the same exists for excel etc).
In word 2007 this is on the path Office Icon > Prepare > Inspect Document. Select ...
There is an article that describes a similar problem (it's about excel templates) and some workarounds.
I haven't tried all these workarounds but it may get you started. I am dealing ...
I believe this is a bug. I have not found solution but I have workaround. I have split my content type into 2 content types. One has managed metadata columns I do not want to be displayed in DIP and another has columns that should be displayed. I added these 2 content types to my library and assigned the one without managed metadata to my documents. After ...
