RemoveFieldRef Element (ContentType)

Last modified: March 09, 2015

Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2010

Specifies a column reference that is included in the parent content type but is to be removed from this content type.

You need only specify the ID attribute of the RemoveFieldRef element. SharePoint Foundation ignores all other attributes of this element.

Attribute

Description

ID

Required Text. Specifies the field ID of the column to be removed from this content type.

Minimum: 0

Maximum: No limit

If the RemoveFieldRef element specifies a column that is not included in the parent content type, SharePoint Foundation disregards the element.

The following example shows RemoveFieldRef elements specifying several columns to remove from a content type.

<FieldRefs>
  <RemoveFieldRef ID="{67df98f4-9dec-48ff-a553-29bece9c5bf4}" Name="Attachments" /> <!-- Attachments -->
  <RemoveFieldRef ID="{f1e020bc-ba26-443f-bf2f-b68715017bbc}" Name="WorkflowVersion" /> <!-- WorkflowVersion -->
  <RemoveFieldRef ID="{bc91a437-52e7-49e1-8c4e-4698904b2b6d}" Name="LinkTitleNoMenu" /> <!-- LinkTitleNoMenu -->
  <RemoveFieldRef ID="{82642ec8-ef9b-478f-acf9-31f7d45fbc31}" Name="LinkTitle" /> <!-- LinkTitle -->
  <RemoveFieldRef ID="{ae069f25-3ac2-4256-b9c3-15dbc15da0e0}" Name="GUID" /> <!-- GUID -->
  <RemoveFieldRef ID="{de8beacf-5505-47cd-80a6-aa44e7ffe2f4}" Name="WorkflowInstanceID" /> <!-- WorkflowInstanceID -->
