SharePoint 2013 XsltListViewWebPart display list from another site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    All our content types use a lookup field linked to a custom list with a lot of item. For helping end users to select a lookup value in the dropdown list I customized the editform.aspx by adding a XsltListViewWebPart displaying the list referenced by lookup field.

    This list is located on the site collection root site. That's the reason why i used the WebID property.

    It's working like a charm when I edit properties of already existing document.

    When I upload (upload.aspx page) a new document into the Library I am redirected to the EditForm.aspx page with an error message "The object specified does not belong to a list.".

    URL : <SharePoint site URL>/_layouts/15/Upload.aspx?List={<List Unique ID>}&RootFolder=<Relative Library URL>.

    If I remove this parameter from query string all is working correctly.

    I think that my WebID property from my XsltListViewWebPart is overwritten by the RootFolder parameter.

    Does someone already had this issue or knows how to workaround ?

    PS: I tried to modify the Upload page for changing the redirect URL without success. Redirect is done by native SharePoint server side code.

    Thank you for your help,

  • Before using server side HTTP module, please have a look into the following links:

    function MyInit()
        alert("MyInit added to page init");


    Sys.Application class belongs to ASP.NET AJAX library, that is built into ASP.NET 3.5 and is automatically made available behind all pages in a SharePoint Farm. The events are related to the Sys.Application class, which provides a runtime object to take care of client events and to manage client components. This object provides access to all its members without creating an instance for it.

    • pageInit
    • pageLoad
    • pageUnload
    • Note that this class can be used because we have in our masterpage the asp:ScriptManager class:

      <asp:ScriptManager ID=”ScriptManager” runat=”server” EnablePageMethods=”false” EnablePartialRendering=”true” EnableScriptGlobalization=”false” EnableScriptLocalization=”true” />


      You can simply call the Sys.Application.add_load method from <head> or <body> to register a function that will execute right after the HTML elements on the page have been made accessible through the DOM.

      Example of usage:

      function MyLoad()
         console.log("Sys.Application.pageLoad. Time: " + (( - performance.timing.navigationStart));
