is officetoolbox.sharepoint.lists.wsp SharePoint 2010 compatible?

First of all, I really appreciate you for developing this product which is very useful for my sharepoint env.
By the way, I'm planning to upgrade sharepoint 2010, and I wonder if it's SharePoint 2001 compatible. Thanks again.

I installed this on my SharePoint 2010 development environment.  I was able to add the solution and Deploy it globally. 

However, the feature does not appear at the Farm, Site Collection or Site level for activation.  I didn't investigate beyond this point.

One of my colleagues pointed out that SharePoint 2010 lists have their own Form Settings and FormSettings.aspx page.

I've rebuilt the solution in 2010 (since the structure of features has changed somewhat and to make it compatible with VS2010 if someone opened it). I have it deployed and semi-working. You can turn things on/off and that's all good. The problem right now is that the overlay screen that 2010 pops up isn't respecting the values of the hidden fields now. Not sure where 2010 is looking at when it uses that data but will try to dig into right now. Thanks.

Update: I realize I didn't deploy the FormSettings.ascx control to replace the existing one (I changed the page name to OfficeToolbox.aspx to avoid conflicts with the new 2010 Form Settings). I'm not sure 2010 still uses the FormSettings.ascx control and that technique but checking it out now. Might be the fix that's needed.

Just an update. I have the final version working now. It's a new 2010 solution so the major change is of course the structure (just load it up in VS2010) and there was one rename. I changed all the "Form Settings" to "Office Toolbox" (including the .ascx and .aspx files). They'll be no confict if you tried to deploy the 2007 version to your 2010 setup, this is just the one that will work. I've also rebuilt this version from the 1.0 version of the toolkit. I tried building it from the current changeset but the code doesn't match the released version and it's got less functionality. So I've restored it back so the 2010 version is exactly the same as the 2007 one in functionality (it even uses the same property bag name so if you migrate a 2007 site to 2010 you'll get all the same settings for your forms).

I'll put together the files as soon as I can and make them available along with some info about the conversion. Any existing docs are still valid since like I said I re-built it from the original codebase so it has the three sections again and respects this when rendering the forms (but it won't use this if you convert your list forms to InfoPath of course).

Thanks again for the great tool!

I'll look at checking this in as a new folder in the source tree since it's a new solution file as well.

Awesome, I was just looking for something exactly like this.  Please check the new version in.

Do you have the latest code?  I am trying to upgrade to 2010 and would like all the current functionality.  It's a great feature!

I just downloaded this .wsp today but get an error when I attempt to install in my MOSS 2007 environment:

Solution manifest for solution '195535a7-e28f-41d0-a84c-d81e45720fee' failed val
idation, file manifest.xml, line 2, character 110: The 'SharePointProductVersion
' attribute is not declared.
d:\installs\Office Toolbox\OfficeToolbox[1].CentralAdmin.wsp: The Solution insta
llation failed.

When I opened the manifest.xml file, the SharePoint product version is:

SharePointProductVersion="14.0"

Is it possible to get a MOSS 2007 compatible version?

Do you know when the 2010 compatible files will be available for download?  

Feb 18, 2012 at 4:29 PM

I have the same problem, after I installed the solution i can not see how can i use, could someone help me.

Mar 21, 2012 at 6:56 AM

Please upload 2010 compatible version :)

I've installed the current version in my 2010 environment and it seems to be working, BUT there are 2 "form settings" on the list settings page. Based on the conversation above, you've updated the project to show "Office Toolbox" instead, so can you please share the solution?

I've updated the file myself and it seems to be working perfectly. All you have to do is change the link it shows in list settings because SP 2010 already has a "form settings" link.

1. Use the info here: http://sharepointroot.com/2010/07/07/editing-contents-of-a-wsp-sharepoint/ to unlock the wsp file, change "Form settings" to "Field settings" (replace all), in the elements.xml file and save a new wsp file. (I didn't change the name OfficeToolbox.SharePoint.Lists.wsp)

2. Uninstall/remove the the solution from SP and add/deploy using the new wsp file. Use these instructions if necessary: http://www.dotnetmafia.com/blogs/dotnettipoftheday/archive/2009/12/02/adding-and-deploying-solutions-with-powershell-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx

3. Activate the solution in central administration under Application Management/Manage web applications/Manage features

Works great in 2010!

In which file do I have to change this?

Kind regards!

It's the elements.xml file.

Thank you. I already got it! ;)

Please, upload visual studio 2010 version compatible for sharepoint 2010! I tried convert source project to 2010, but when I import in VS 2010, I don't get WSP, only dll file. Please upload work project for visual studio 2010 sharepoint project template.

Hi, do you we this tool for SharePoint 2013 instead of using SPD or Infopath to customize these forms? thank you
