Everybody dance now!
Everyone loves a good remix… So… By far my most popular blog post is my entry Creating a SharePoint List Parent / Child Relationship - Out of the Box. I am thrilled that so many have found it useful. However, several questions have popped up from the blog and I’ve learned more since then and wanted to redo the blog. So, what better way than to do it with videos! I broke the entire blog up into 6 different videos for your viewing pleasure. Sorry if I ramble.. but hopefully I get my thoughts across and it makes sense.
If you find any portion confusing let me know and I’ll try and redo it!!! Without further ado… Creating a SharePoint List Parent/Child Relationship – Video Remix….
*Hush of the audience in anticipation*
Okay.. okay.. I’ll just get to it.
Video 1 – Creating the Site and Lists
Video 2 – Setting Up Filtered Child List on Parent Display Form
Video 3 – Creating Custom New Page form for New Child Entry
I also start the processing of inserting a link to the new page
Video 4 – Passing the Value of the Parent List ID to the Child New Item Entry Page
As requested, here is the code used for the “insert” link that I use in the video.
GoToLink(this); return false;" target="_self">Create a new Task...</a>
Video 5 – Automatically Setting Parent ID field in Child List from Query String Variable
I also hide the Parent ID field on the Child New Item form to prevent users from mucking it up
Video 6 – Creating Links to Child Entry Display Pages From Child List on Parent Display Form
