Data View Web Part breaks using query string ID after deleting list items RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm using a data view web part to display a single list item form in a web part page. I'm filtering the DVWP using a unique query string and the ID of the list item.

    I deleted all my tests to release the solution to the public, when the DVWP broke with the error: "List item was deleted or cannot be found."

    Since each list item has a unique, sequential ID number, why would this break if I delete list items?

  • Did you tried using different name for your query string variable?? for example instead of ID try using itemID..

  • Chanakya, thanks for your reply! I'm using the variable "goid" rather than "ID".

  • Hi,

    Could you please tell me the detailed steps about releasing the solution to the public?

    I had test in my local, it worked well.

  • Hi Xue-Mei, Thank you for your reply, it is much appreciated!

    My steps:

    1.     I created a data view web part in a web part page, and set a single item form to filter based on a query string filter.
    2. Then I add some test items in the custom list which the data view web part is linked to. All works well, I'm able to edit the items using my DVWP.
    3. I need to delete my test items so the public does not see them, and started add new, production items.
    4. Yet when I delete the test items, the DVWP no longer functions, showing the SharePoint error page with the "Item has been deleted" error for the production items.
    5. On a whim, I restored from recycle bin all items, and the DVWP now works.

  • Any chance you can show us some of your DVWP's xsl/html markup.  Specifically the tag <SharePoint:SPDataSource  and <ParameterBindings

    Did you manipulate the XSL directly to work with your custom filters?

  • Hi J, thanks for your reply! I did not manipulate the XSL directly to work with the filter, but did modify it quite a bit to build the form i wanted.

    <SharePoint:SPDataSource runat="server" DataSourceMode="List" SelectCommand="&lt;View&gt;&lt;Query&gt;&lt;Where&gt;&lt;Eq&gt;&lt;FieldRef Name=&quot;ID&quot;/&gt;&lt;Value Type=&quot;Counter&quot;&gt;{GOID}&lt;/Value&gt;&lt;/Eq&gt;&lt;/Where&gt;&lt;/Query&gt;&lt;/View&gt;" UseInternalName="true" ID="dataformwebpart2"><SelectParameters><WebPartPages:DataFormParameter Name="ListID" ParameterKey="ListID" PropertyName="ParameterValues" DefaultValue="{875420D1-6C62-4147-906B-74F62C20B305}"/><asp:Parameter Name="StartRowIndex" DefaultValue="0"/><asp:Parameter Name="nextpagedata" DefaultValue="0"/><asp:Parameter Name="MaximumRows" DefaultValue="1"/><WebPartPages:DataFormParameter Name="GOID" ParameterKey="GOID" PropertyName="ParameterValues"/></SelectParameters><UpdateParameters><WebPartPages:DataFormParameter Name="ListID" ParameterKey="ListID" PropertyName="ParameterValues" DefaultValue="{875420D1-6C62-4147-906B-74F62C20B305}"/></UpdateParameters><InsertParameters><WebPartPages:DataFormParameter Name="ListID" ParameterKey="ListID" PropertyName="ParameterValues" DefaultValue="{875420D1-6C62-4147-906B-74F62C20B305}"/></InsertParameters><DeleteParameters><WebPartPages:DataFormParameter Name="ListID" ParameterKey="ListID" PropertyName="ParameterValues" DefaultValue="{875420D1-6C62-4147-906B-74F62C20B305}"/></DeleteParameters>

    <ParameterBindings>					<ParameterBinding Name="dvt_apos" Location="Postback;Connection"/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="UserID" Location="CAMLVariable" DefaultValue="CurrentUserName"/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="Today" Location="CAMLVariable" DefaultValue="CurrentDate"/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="dvt_startposition" Location="Postback" DefaultValue=""/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="dvt_firstrow" Location="Postback;Connection"/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="dvt_nextpagedata" Location="Postback;Connection"/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="ListID" Location="None" DefaultValue="{875420D1-6C62-4147-906B-74F62C20B305}"/>
    									<ParameterBinding Name="GOID" Location="QueryString(goid)" DefaultValue=""/>

  • Joe,

    offhand, it looks right.  Is it possible you hard-coded a value instead of $GOID somewhere in your XSL

  • Is this the only DVWP on your page? Are there any closed web parts on the page? What modifications did you make to the DVWP?
