Use field twice on a form


Posted by bburke - Feb 13 ’15 at 10:53

I have a form with tabs. I would like to place a field on the the first page of the form (first tab) and use that same field on the second page (tab) of the form. It would be preferable that the field could be updated on either tab.


Thanks, Bill

    I am looking for the same solution for Sharepoint 2010.  Any suggestions?

    [#1]: You cannot have the same field in Edit mode twice on the same form. So I'd recommend to re-organize your form and put the field above the tab control. Also, you can place the field twice in ReadOnly mode: put Plain Text or Rich Text control onto your form and insert the following content: [FieldName]

    There is a  work around for this problem:

    - In the list create an field of the same type as the one you want to show twice

    - Put that field on form

    - in the onsubmit handler make sure the "real" field is updated from the other one if needed.
