  1. Hi Alex,

    Thanks for a wonderful blog. I have a question- I have a list with multiple fields. Msot of tehm are dropdowns. I am displaying the list or importing the data to Word doc. the issue is it gets all teh columns in teh word doc- instead I want to get only the cols which the user fills and leave teh empty or columns with zero values in my word doc and display form? Is this possible? thanks a ton!

  2. hi,

    i have added a calendar with color in the sharepoint. but cannot find the codes for adding the legend to it. do you have the codes to add the legend to the calendar

  3. Hi Alexander

    Is it possible create workflows to send automatic emails by status, count days, assign values ​​to columns, etc without the Sharepoint Design 2007, by javascripts?

  4. Hi Alexander

    Is it possible create a section to change columns widths? For a example: a field to select the list column and another field to insert the width.

  5. Hi Alexander,

    I have come across your article on https://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/eusp/pages/sharepoint-interactive-charts-using-google-visualization-api.aspx
    and posted a question there – since the last reply on that side was pretty dated, I thought I might try for help on this site.
    First of all, thanks for sharing this great solution. I got it to work reasonably well. I am however struggling with formatting the vAxis. I would like to show a date column for the purpose of a Milestone trend Analysis Chart.
    I tried to add the relevant options in the following format:
    Option Name: hAxis.format
    Option Value: ‘YYYY MM DD’
    I tried with & without single / double quotes – no effect.
    I also tried other options like : hAxis.baselineColor but no effect either. Plain options like backgroundColor seem to work fine.
    Any help is most appreciated.
    Best regards

  6. Hi Alex. Love your Dynamic Forms. They work great! Question 4 U ~ Our company will be transitioning to SharePoint 2013 later this year. Will Dynamic Forms continue to work with 2013 as is or will I need to make updates to the jQuery library or other files? Can you provide any documentation or helpful links?


    1. Hi,
      The solution is compatible with 2013, no modifications needed. I’m sorry, but the only documentation is in the articles regarding the solution in this site. I have also inserted a lot of help icons you can hover over in the GUI. If there are something you do not find the answer to here, let me know.


  7. Hi Alex, your solutions have been very useful.

    I noticed that you use ASMX web service calls. With ASMX web services being deprecated in SharePoint 2013, how will you be transitioning the scripts to use REST or some other client-side object model approaches?


    1. Hi,
      The asmx webservices are deprecated, but still available in 2013. The reason I still use them is mainly for SP 2007 compatibility, but also because some features are not available in the javascript client object model – like the add attachments method I used in my latest solution.

      The rest api has some major issues when addressing fields in lists as you use a truncated display name and not the internal name of the fields in queries. This is even more messy when using different language packs. The rest api is also different in SP 2010 and 2013 which would result in separate versions for each SharePoint version.

      I may look into the rest api in future solutions exclusive for SP 2013, but will not upgrade existing solutions to use rest.
