CustomField of Type "Person" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I want to add custom field to the project called "IT Admin" it will refer to a resource.

    I want to add this field to a PDP in the "Project Fields" web part. but I dont want to make it Free text box. I want to have browse button just like the "Project Owner" field.

    in another words I want to show the "Pick Resource" dialogue.

    anyway?

  • Hi,

    Have a look at the Automcomplete solution starter webpart, it allows you to effectively put up a people picker field based on a Project Server security group.  The webpart is available is found in the PDP customisations part of the PS 2010 Solution starters (http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/P2010SolutionStarter/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=5303)

    hope this helps,

  • It's in the PDPCustomisations.zip file. I use the source.zip file, and there is one VS solution in there with a stack of cool customisation, that being one.

  • Alex, I turned on the feature, personally I liked it , but I dont think its acceptable becuase there will be no consistency in the same page. i.e the project owner will be chosen from a dialog box and the IT admin will be chosen with auto-complete!

    I guess I will write my own webpart.

  • Hi Karthi,

    take the following scenario to understand the "dynamic custom fields" webpart:

     Suppose that you have a custom field called "Project Department" it get the data from Lookup table. and you want some other custom fields to be required if the project department is "IT" , and you want other fields to be required if the project department is "HR". in this casae this webpart will help you to do that.

     

    I hope i delivered the idea :)
