Mobile Fields to ASP.NET Controls Map

Published: May 2010

The following tables provide information about how Microsoft SharePoint Foundation field types that are used in mobile forms are mapped to Microsoft ASP.NET mobile controls.

SharePoint Foundation Field Type

ASP.NET Mobile Control

Comment

Single line of text

Label

Same as ASP.NET control except for rendering of ellipses.

Multiple lines of text

TextView

Renders plain text of rich HTML text field type.

Choice

Label

Same as ASP.NET control except for rendering of ellipses.

Number

Uses SharePoint Foundation field type controls for format conversion.

Currency

Date and time

Uses code in SharePoint Foundation field type controls for local date/time conversion.

Lookup

Hyperlink or picture

Link

The number of attachments to display is limited. Up to three attachments are displayed, which is set by a rendering limit. See Ellipses and Rendering Limits.

SharePoint Foundation Field Type

ASP.NET Mobile Control

Comment

Single line of text

TextBox

Displays read-only Label control the same as in a Display form if the data to edit exceeds a maximum character limit.

Multiple lines of text

TextBox

Displays read-only Label control the same as in a Display form if the data to edit exceeds a maximum character limit. If the markup language of the current browser is not Wireless Markup Language (WML), the TextBox control is used. The TextBox control does not support rich HTML text formatting, and so in the Edit form, if the field type is rich HTML text, the field is rendered as a read-only control. However, in the New form, the TextBox control is used even when the field is in rich HTML text format.

Choice

SelectionList

Supports drop-down list boxes only, and allows multiple selections. In the New form, if the number of choice options exceeds a maximum number, the first n options (n = maximum number) are displayed. In the Edit form, a read-only Label control is displayed.

Number

TextBox

Currency

TextBox

Date and time

TextBox

Displays description text. Does not support the calendar date picker. The current locale in SharePoint Foundation determines the date and time input format. The following types of calendars are supported: Gregorian, Japanese Emperor Era, Korean Tangun Era, Hijri, Buddhist, Hebrew Lunar, Gregorian Middle East French, Gregorian Arabic, Gregorian Transliterated English, Gregorian Transliterated French, and Saka Era.

Lookup

SelectionList

The maximum limit behavior is the same as for the Choice field type.

Yes/no

SelectionList

Same as ASP.NET control except for rendering of ellipses.

Hyperlink or picture

TextBox

If the display name of the hyperlink or picture exceeds a maximum character limit, the remaining characters are truncated and an ellipsis (...) is appended. The URL itself is not truncated. For the limit, see Ellipses and Rendering Limits.

Name

TextBox

Read-only in Edit form. Does not support the New form for document libraries.

Person or Group

SelectionList

The cutoff maximum limit behavior is the same as for the Choice field type. When multiple selection is not enabled, a Button, which navigates user to the people picker form, is rendered right next to the SelectionList.
