Access List Item DispForm.aspx via Title instead of ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there anyway to access the DispForm.aspx of a List item using DispForm.aspx?Title=?? rather than DispForm.aspx?ID=??

    I have tried typing this in the address bar but I just get a blank form instead of the form related to the list item with that title.

    (Also using Custom List Form for displaying)

  • Looking at the DispForm.aspx its basically a ListFormWebPart, theres nothing really to change to make it accept Title. I think thats the behavior coded in. 

    What you could do is create a dataview webpart to display the items, and have it accept a query string parameter to match the title.
