I saw an MSDN Forum post today, so I looked for a ListInstance Hidden property in SharePoint 2007 features. There is none, but interestingly enough there is one in 2010. I wondered what would happen if you did this: <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.micro... <ListInstance FeatureId="00bfea71-de22-43... Title="Hidden List Test" Description="Testing a hidden list." TemplateType="100" Hidden="TRUE" OnQuickLaunch="FALSE" Url="Lists/TestHidden" /> </Elements> ...

I wrote a couple features with some list definitions, site columns, and a content type with a feature receiver. It was the first real feature that I ever wrote. I built a presentation on features, but that was all research and books. I did the presentation once, but I never really knew much about features. This time around I did not use STSDev or VSEWSS. I knew what the DDF file was and the Manifest.xml from my SPS 2003 days, but was very rusty. I think that this week definitely helped me with my ...
Yes, that's the question I have been pondering for the last couple of hours (maybe more). And I am begriming to believe that it cant be done. Other than for the route of either writing a feature receiver to upload the template to a list on activation (but I think this approach is unclean) or modify onet.xml (a site definition?). I think both approaches are unnecessarily complex for the task at hand. Think about it, just so that I could have a custom document library or form library with a custom ...

The Title Column inherrited from Item typically shows itself up in any contentType that would define. But ever wanted to call it something else? Here is how you do it. <FieldRef ID="{fa564e0f-0c70-4ab9-b86... Name="Title" DisplayName="Your Other Name for Title" Sealed="TRUE"/> The trick is in the DisplayName. Reference the Title Colulmn and give it a seperate DisplayName And you could even have a go at LinkTitle <FieldRef ID="{82642ec8-ef9b-478f-acf... Name="LinkTitle" ...
Having to upgrade servers to B2TR today, I was wondering, it would really be cool to have a tool that could backup ContentTypes that you have defined using SharePoint into a feature definition. That would actually make defining ContentTypes as a feature more easy, provide a means of porting them between servers, and also assist as a means of fascilitating granular backup. Does anyone else see eye to eye with me on this? I am thinking that if Microsoft doesnt have this on their radar it might be an ...
