SharePoint: grouping items into folders

For a project I had to create view and group list items based on the folders they reside.

Short answer: in SharePoint you can't group by folder (name).

So you have to map the folder information into some column associated to your data:

  • create a text / choice column to store the folder name
    if you have deeper levels, you can consider create a taxonomy column
  • map the folder to the newly created column via folder default values or eventually workflow (more extensible but slower)


An article explaining the concept using folder default values is Group Items on Their Folder Name Inside a SharePoint Library. This article also remembers that SharePoint folder default values don't exist in SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 Foundation.

Html: character maps

Sometimes you need character maps in html, to reproduce the strange Windings symbols you find in Word documents and PowerPoint presentations.

You can find it here: Wingdings character set and equivalent Unicode characters.

SharePoint: how quickly empty the Recycle Bin

For my current project I have done a lot of tests, so my site Recycle Bin is really full.

Instead of emptying each page manually, I searched for a quicker options, and I have found that simply pasting javascript:emptyItems() on the address bar effectiverly clears it!

Only two notes:

  • when pasting, for security reasons Internet Explorer removes the javascript: from the address, so you need to write it manually;
  • if the operation goes in timeout because of a very big Trash Bin, simply re-try.


I have found this trick in the page Completely Empty the SharePoint Recycle Bin.

SharePoint 2013 stand-alone installation error: "The SDDL string contains an invalid sid or a sid that cannot be translated"

When installing SharePoint 2013 in stand-alone mode, typical for study purposes, you'll get this error: "The SDDL string contains an invalid sid or a sid that cannot be translated".

I have found the solution in the TechNet article SharePoint 2013 : The SDDL string contains an invalid sid or a sid that cannot be translated: the solution is to share (via Properties | Sharing | Advanced Sharing) the folder Admin_{guid} in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Data\Office Server\.

jQuery: creating extensions

When developing with jQuery, I often need to verify selectors, so I usually write something like this:

$('my selector').css('background-color', 'red');

To save some typing, I wanted to create a jQuery extension so I have followed the tutorial Writing Your Own jQuery Plugins and here is my extension:

(function($) {

   // This function makes the background color red (used for debug)
   $ = function() {
      this.each(function() {
         $(this).css('background-color', 'red');

   // This function alerts the length of the collection items (used for debug)
   $.fn.alertLength = function() {

   // This function alerts each item in the collection (used for debug)
   $.fn.foreachAlert = function() {
      this.each(function(index, value) {
         alert('' + index + ': ' + value);


SharePoint: getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle

When developing in SharePoint using the client-script object model, for sure you have met the function getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle, proposed by Microsoft and copied in many websites.

The basic implementation can be found in many websites, and the article Tags and Identifiers for getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle Function is only one of many examples.


But this function doesn't handle choice fields displayed as radio buttons.

So I have found another other implementation in the blog post Trigger JavaScript Events When a Choice (Radio Button) SharePoint Field Type is Clicked.

Regions in Notepad++

While editing JavaScript files with Notepad++, I have noticed that like in Visual Studio there is the nice feature to collapse function methods.

But so I thought, how to implement the "regions" that I can define in C# files?


I have found a nice trick in one of the answers at the question notepad++ user defined regions with folding: simply add a comment and then the opening and closure brackets.

In my example it could be:

  • ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////{ BEGIN of my region
  • ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////} END of my region

SharePoint Item Validation Formulas

I always forget the available formulas used to build SharePoint item validation formulas.

The main formulas are:

  • IF(condition, value if true, value if false)
  • AND(cond1, cond2, condN)
  • OR(cond1, cond2, condN)

SharePoint: Bamboo Lookup Selector other bugs

Here other bugs I have discovered related to the Bamboo Lookup Selector:

  • if you mark a field as mandatory, then you can't edit the display form (like adding web parts or customizing existing web parts)
    You can avoid this marking the field as not required, modify the form, the mark the field as required
    This is anyway very annoying, because it's time consuming and, in the end, you can forget to reset all the proper fields as mandatory
  • if you mark a fields as mandatory, if you have the Related Fields web part if your display form and you try to add related records, the refresh of parent display form throws an error
    The only solution I have found to avoid this is to market the field as not required and leave it in this way

Sorry but my evaluation of Bamboo Components is of low quality (many bugs to understand and avoid) and not coherence with SharePoint.
