  1. Extend SharePoint REST API to retrieve list by staticname

    We have a solution which provisions lists to several site collections. There can be different language version, so list display names are localized. It would be nice have a REST endpoint to retrieve list by it's internal name.

  2. provide some guidance on how to use the office-ui-fabric-react components in a way that is consistent with the way sharepoint uses them.

    Hi,
    I think what we really need is some goidance on how to use the office-ui-fabric-react components in a way that is consistent with the way sharepoint uses them.

    How do we add a time control to the date-picker?
    How do we make a panel open when user selects an item in a Details list.
    How do we add the ellipses to a DetailsList and make it open a context menu
    How do we make a DetailsList display like the QuickEdit view(if thats what quickedit uses).
    How do we populate a PeoplePicker from sharepoint.

    I think a document (or a…

  3. List AllowDeletion is missing in new CSOM version !

    I am sorry if this duplicate or if I missed to read the documentation. I tried to toggle allow list deletion to true or false and couldn't find the property.

  4. Enabled Javascript in Modern view

    I have implemented, JSlink for the Document library's default view, where JSLink associated at field level to get field properties and invoke Java script functions to get the properties and do some tweaks.

    We want to have same type of approach with the Modern view also. As per Microsoft still it not supported in Modern view of library. Any alternate way to achieve this?

    I have already tried with the custom Action at the document library Toolbar (associate custom action with Content type), but the issue is it not support JavaScript calling.

  5. Use CSS Grids and Flexbox for Layout

    It's 2017, you really shouldn't be using <table> for layout!

    SharePoint should use Grid and Flexbox for layout of not just the Ribbon, sidebar, navbar etc but for List forms too. This would clean up the SharePoint HTML and CSS considerably as well as making it easier to customise the layout of forms.

    (Sure, there's an argument to be made that there's a semantic relationship between form input and tabular data, but I'm pretty sure the 'tables for form layout' is just something carried over from earlier versions of SharePoint needing to serve browsers with poor standards support.)

    Hi – thanks for your input. Technically this has been already done at SharePoint Online where all the new experiences are natively responsive, including site pages, site contents, list or library experiences. We are also working on including these in the future feature packs for SharePoint 2016 on-premises. We are not using

    format for the layouts with the modern experiences.
