Control specific hidden attributes to customize workitemform controls


A while back I made a post on Hidden attributes to control your work item form layout . Later I realized from a forum post that there are few control specific attributes that are not documentated, so I updated the post with NumberFormat & MaxLength attributes for FieldControl and Format & CustomFormat attributes for DateTimeControl. I did another search in code and looks like I haven't missed any other attributes. The format attributes are good to know for DateTimeControl because I occasionally hear the question: DateTimeControl seems to show only Date, no "time" part - now we know how to set it up to show time part.

    is there a way to put an image or dynamic text on a tab of a tabpage based on a field’s value?  I am wanting to highlight a tab (for instance the attachments or links tab) if they have data in them.

  2. Answer to above question is No. We have this feature in list of things considered though.
