Identity Element (View)
Last modified: July 15, 2011
Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013
Used in a New or Edit form to render hidden fields used by the form.
The Identity element renders the following <INPUT> tags for the Edit form of the first announcement in the built-in announcements list. These values are posted back to the server when a form is submitted so that the server knows the list, as well as the row, to which the POST refers. The NAME attribute's owshiddenversion value is used for conflict detection.
