In his recent post Robert J Wheeler has presented his way of dealing with building CAML queries dynamically. Here at Imtech ICT Business Solutions we use a slightly different approach.
Some of our customers like to have the information displayed in a different way than the order of the fields within the Content Types: there is frankly a difference of the information meaning for their customers (visitors) and the Information Workers within the organization. As SharePoint 2007 ships with the in-place edit possibility it’s quite obvious that this is the recommended way to use for managing the data – especially when it comes to Information Workers who not necessarily have to have technical background. Implementing the required fields in the Page Layout seems to be the solution for this problem: both IW and visitors have the idea of the page will look after publishing.
