Hi ramuar1981,
I will do most of my customization with SharePoint Designer. Some times we need to go for Custom Forms instead of built in pages in list (like Allitems.aspx, NewForm.aspx, DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx).
So If I build the custom Newform page then Some of the fields need to be label instead of original Data type.
For Example in my list say ABC I have Title (Single Line Of Text), Project Name (Single Line Of Text), Project Completed % (Number), Status(Choice).
So I created a Custom New Form then I add Custom List Form to my New Custom New Form. So I will get all the fields with original data types.
But I want to Show my Status field values as Label instead on Choice. We have an option to change Choice to lable but it is not showing value in the form at runtime ...
Please let me know if anything is not clear ...
Thanks,
Rao.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Thanks Nilang_ETI.
But 3rd party tools are allowed... :(
Anyway thanks for the good resource.
Any idea with SPD 2007 ?

you can put the newform page in split code/design view.  my suggestion is to create a new label field so you can see the code for label fields.  then click on the field you want to change, and modify the code so it's a label.

sorry i can't be more specific.  i don't have access to sharepoint in order to give you the exact code.  but this is how i used to do it.

Hi zephyr_hex,
Actually in NewForm it is not working. But the same concept is working in EditForm.
The label is binding to Data Field but it is not showing the value ... :(
I tried your way also but no luck.
Thanks,
Rao.
