On a recent project I have an external data list showing some data from a SQL database that is part of an LOB system. When I click any of the items in the list I’m getting the list’s display form but it launches in a dialogue. I really want it to be a full-page so List Tools/List/List Settings but Advanced settings isn’t there because it’s an external data list.
One of the things that would often work in a previous version if a setting got trimmed out of the UI is just construct the URL to the setting. My list is on the Admin subsite of my web application, so I can use:
and then put the GUID of my list on the end. I get the advanced settings with one option Launch Forms in a Dialog. If I put this to No and press OK, I can turn dialogues off on the list, just like any other. There really was no need to trim this setting out of the interface
