How to redirect after completing list form RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I'm having trouble redirecting to a sharepoint page. When i completed editing or adding a new item to a list i want to redirect to another page in my sharepoint site.

    I search the web and tried some tips but it wont work,.

    i tried this below, but the validation is not working, so its not what i want

    <input type="button" value="Submit" name="btnSave" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit;__redirect={http://www.yoursite.com/customPage.aspx}')}" />

  • There are multiple ways of doing this:

    1. You can  modify the Source attribute in the querystring using javascript to your required URL.

    2. You can use an event receiver to redirect to the required page

  • You need to perform the following steps:

    1. Go to your page (new form or edit form) change the URL to contain the following querystring parameter toolpaneview=2 e.g. if your url is http://mysite/lists/listname/newform.aspx?listid=<GUID> then change it to http://praveenbattula.blogspot.in/2009/04/replace-querystrng-with-some-value-in.html. If it doesn't already exist then add the source parameter to the url as window.location.href = yoururl + "&Source=<relativeurl>";
    2. Save the page and perform your required action

  • Thanks,

    When i add toolpaneview=2 it will edit the page

    then if i will add the window.location.href = yoururl + "&Source=<relativeurl>" in a CEWP it will just redirect it to the page in the source, but i can no longer add an item,

    i think it will not work

    i need to add an item then redirect to a custom page.

  • You are right.. Sorry but this solution won't work..

    Is the event receiver feasible for you.
