People Picker values not displaying properly in DispForm while using Custom List Form

I have tried  customizing the DispForm.aspx and once I view the form in browser i found the people editor values are not displaying properly. Instead some HTML code was displayed.And this happened only for the people editor controls where I have allowed multiple selection.

When I opened the form in the designer I found the XSL code for the particular people editor showed

<xsl:value-of select=”@Team_x0020_Members”/>

I have added another parameter disable-output-escaping=”yes” to that line. No my code read as

<xsl:value-of select=”@Team_x0020_Members” disable-output-escaping=”yes”/>

That have done the magic.

  1. Hey…I’m having the same issue, and I’m currently new in sharepoint, so could you please briefly explain how to open the form in designer so I can modify the XSL code??

    Thank you!!

  2. similar issue but instead i have lookup fields in the library that lookup a field in a list. when i customized the Display.aspx form (for the library) the field displays like this:


    the value 1 for the above should display as hyperlink to the list item

  3. interesting in my first post, the HTML code actually displayed the 1 in a link format but in Sharepoint it displays the HTML code…’s the code again but i had make changes so that it doesn’t come up with the actual link. (i put a space after the first = sign)


  4. Oh for crying out loud! For a document library, I hid the display.aspx form (in Designer) and created a new form. Two of those columns are lookup columns that retrieve values from a list in the same site.

    In “View Item” the link value is displaying the html 1 rather than the actual link. If I set Format item to Text, it still displays the same thing.

    Help is appreciated. Thank you.
