Subject Re: SharePoint List item URLs
Date Wed, 20 Nov 2013 21:13:42 GMT
I was trying to read the value as metadata, but clearly, then, it is not
available, and we will need to construct it ourselves, probably according
to this formula:

// Display form full url
string.Format("{0}{1}?ID={2}", item.Web.Url,
item.ParentList.Forms[PAGETYPE.PAGE_DISPLAYFORM].ServerRelativeUrl,
item.ID)

The problem is that when I included this in the plugin code, the
plugin failed to work properly.

No doubt it threw an exception of some kind, but we have no idea what that was.

Constructing it in Java is fine except I'm missing whatever the
item.ParentList.Forms[] array would have

contained.  Can you confirm that this is the plugin you tried:

11832 Nov 20 17:35 MetaCarta.SharePoint.MCPermissionsService.wsp

If the size differed it is possible you were using the wrong one -
let's just rule that out first.
