Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

So I promised you guys one interesting fact based on my dev experiences every week.  I failed last week due to a ton of junk going on.  Here it is:

  1. Open up an "EditForm.aspx" in SharePoint Designer
  2. Go to the Insert menu and click on the SharePoint Section and you will see Insert Custom List Form Field
    At this point you want to choose the list you are working with in the drop down and make sure the radio button for Edit Form is selected
  3. Switch to Split and highlight part of the form tables, notice you can see the CSS Items

This view is really good if you want to see what CSS classes are used for labels, controls, and columns in an edit form.  Since you can't use the InputFormControl or InputFormSection in a web part this may help you out if you want to derive from these classes in the RenderContents method without creating your own style sheet.  Isn't that really neat?  I will try and post another interesting fact later on this week before Sunday hits.  For now catch you guys later.
