Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2010

Represents a property that applies to a Web application.

  Default = "Text"
  HTMLEncode = "TRUE" | "FALSE"
  Name = "Text"
  Select = "Text"
  ShowField = "TRUE" | "FALSE"
  StripWS = "TRUE" | "FALSE"
  URLEncode = "TRUE" | "FALSE"

Optional Text. Renders the text assigned to this attribute if the value returned by a selection is an empty string ("").


Optional Boolean. TRUE to convert embedded characters so that they are displayed as text in the browser. In other words, characters that could be confused with HTML tags are converted to entities.


Optional Text. Specifies the name of the server property.


Required Text. Specifies the name of the property to select.


Optional Text. The ShowField attribute can be set to the field name to display. By default, a hyperlinked text from the Title field of the record in the external list is displayed. But the ShowField attribute can be used to override that and display another field from the external list.

The following data types are allowed as targets of a ShowField attribute: Text, Choice, and Counter.


Optional Boolean. TRUE to remove white space from the beginning and end of the value returned by the element.


Optional Boolean. TRUE to convert special characters, such as spaces, to quoted UTF-8 format (for example, %c3%ab for character ë).


Optional Boolean. Like URLEncode, but TRUE to specify that the string to encode is a path component of a URL so that forward slashes ("/") are not encoded.
