  • You can use links like

    <server>/<site>/<list>/dispform.aspx?id=<itemid>

  • Hi ez44,

    Thanks for your post.

    As i understand, you want to add a custom action to the external list. It can be achieved by using SharePoint Designer 2010. here is the link:

  • When you create external content type, you need to link someone field of datasource with Title column. Then you just need to add this column to the view and it will be displayed as a link to item details.

  • Am I missing something? When you create an external list, you automatically get a bunch of info path forms so when you select and item from a list you get an item detail or update form.

  • I have a similar question, I think. I have a library of pictures, with various permissions. I want to make a list of these pictures, which anyone can look at, including certain descriptive fields, such as titles and captions. I also want to include hyperlinks to the actual pictures, but if the user clicks on the hyperlink, only those with the correct permissions can see the picture.

    How best to accomplish that?

    Thanks, PB
