Different way of showing lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a list of acronym's with a search feature for each letter, so if you search for the letter it will show all the acronyms with the letter typed. See below:

    However I want to see it so that I can see every letter and when I click the letter it shows me the acronyms under that letter. See below for example:

    Thanks!

  • You could try the boxed no labels style on the view, which will present a grid like table, which will make more effective use of your white space.  To get that "film strip" view you're after, you'd probably need to convert the view to a DataGrid view and amend the XSLT.

  • Hi,

    You can do this either development or from UI, using Connected web parts

  • None of this makes sense! Is there anything more simple?

  • That's what makes sense because there is nothing like this OOB.

  • You could add a calculated column such as "Alphabet Index" and have it return the first character in the title.  Then you could change the view of the search results to group on that field.
