Hi Alexander, the URL parmeter sounds like a great idea. I have not used the “Deploy” option from the AppCatalog because we only need it on ONE site collection so just removing it from the Site Collection would work for me to add the JSON. I’ll use that for the time being. Many thanks.
Sorry, this is the question I meant to ask.
I have already created DFFS forms and they mostly work fine.
I have 40 lists and hence 120 DFFS forms
I can only add the JSON formatting suggested in this post, to the “original” SharePonit form.
How do I access the original form in order to put the JSON formatting in place when everytime I open the forms now I get the DFFS form?
Is there a quick way to temporary “disable” the DFFS form so I can add the JSON to the “original” form?
This is a brilliant work around.
How do you easily get back to the original form though when there ARE DFFS forms defined?
Yes, all fixed for me. Many thanks
I’ll try to build a document for you over the weekend.
No errors – just no options in the “child” field
My form defines a “mapping” between a source “property” and a destination “property”
A property will belong to an “Entity”
An Entity will belong to an “Adapter”
List 1 is called “Adapters”. There are 17 items in this list.
List 2 is called “Entities”. It has a lookup column in it that looks up the Adatpers list and returns the “Title” of the adapter. There are 100 items in this list
A custom JS on this second list concatenates the Entity Name and the Adapter iname
into a text field called “EntityAdapter”
List 3 is called “Properties”. It has a lookup column that looks up the “£ntities” list and pulls back the “EntityAdatper” field from the second list (i.e. NOT the Title). This list also has a column called “DataType” (just a choice column). There are 560 items in this list.
A custom JS on the third list concatenates the DataType-Property-Entity-Adapter in single column
List 4 is called “Mapping”.
Column 1 (source entity/Adapter) is a lookup to “Entities” and allows me to pick an Entity-Adapter combination. It pulls back the column “EntityAdapter”
Column 2 (source property) is the one I am trying to filer. It is a lookup to the “Properties” list and pulls back the DateType-Property-Enty-Adapter column. I need it to filter on the “EntityAdapter” column
Column 3 (destination entity/adapter) is also a lookup to “Entities” and allows me to again pick an Entity-Adapter combination from the field “EntityAdapter” on the Entities list (i.e. I am not pulling the Title field).
Column 4 (destination property) i ALSO need to filer but this one needs to filter on column 3. It is a lookup to the “Properties” list and pulls back DataType-Property-Entity-Adapter. I need it to filter on the value in Column 3
Hope this makes sense
It used to work but seemed to get some issues a way back and I was getting throttling messages. Then I decided to remove that funtion to keep going with my project. I have just revisted it and it no longer gives me throttling messages but unfortunately the “child” lookup shows blank after selecting a value in the “parent”
Just a thought, would it be possible to load in a “light” version of the list set extension that just disables the existing standard form mechanisms and then waits for the real DFFS to load? If DFSS has not yet loaded, the “light” version could give a link which, by the time it is displayed will have loaded DFSS?
Hi Jorah, thanks for the tip but my users need to access the forms from SharePoint lists using the standard SharePoint “New, Edit, Open” functions.
Good find! Thanks Alexander. Great work here.
I did get it working with
Title eq ”
But I then get a message:
“There are no items matching this query”
I tried your Filter idea but it seems like vLookup always is epecting something –
otherwise it just shows a spinning disk forever..
Wonderful news about the new release too. 😀
