Custom field type

Jul 6, 2009 at 4:59 PM


I have a custom list that has 1 content type.

This content type has a custom field type with validation (Regex validator -


1- The content type column is shown in my form.

After assigning the content type to my custom list, I even change the list setting to 'do not allow content type' and I still have the content type shown in the form generator.

2- The custom field type validation is not fire at the right time.

When entering a bad value this field in form generator, the form stays in the current page (do not go to submit URL) and show only custom field error message WITHOUT any fields.

Thanks for the regex validator.

Did you check for the content type column shown in Form generator webpart? I noticed that in your screen shot example, there is no content type column shown. Is it because you create column directly in the list (not using content type)?

It would be nice if the form generator would use the exact column order of the content type to display the columns.
