HP Optimized Power Plan on Windows 7

Optimized power plan on Windows 7

In the downloads section on the support pages on http://www.hp.com  for my HP EliteBook 8730w, I did found that HP is offering something called “System Default Settings for Microsoft Windows 7” One thing that this installs is a new power plan called HP Optimized, which actually replaces the default Balanced power plan.

So what differs between the two? I compared them and come to the following differences:

SharePoint: How to apply ViewStyle in schema.xml

When you are customizing a SharePoint list with a custom schema.xml file, you may also want to set the ViewStyle for your View.

You do that by adding a <ViewStyle ID="xx"/> element within the <View> element. For exampl ID 17 corresponds to the "Shaded" view style.

Here’s a table with the common ViewStyles available, as defined in the <12 HIVE>\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL\XML\VWStyles.xml

0 Basic Table
12 Boxed, no labels
13 Boxed
15 Newsletter
16 Newsletter, no lines
17 Shaded
20 Preview Pane
0 Default

Using UserMulti field in the CAML schema

This was unexpected, and not documented at all in the SharePoint SDK.

When you create a UserMulti column, you must also specify Mult=”TRUE”, otherwise it will fall back to a standard (single select) User column type.

<Field ID=”{12312312-1234-1234-1234-123412341234}”


Group=”My Group”
Type=”UserMulti”
Mult=”TRUE”
