Missing Web Parts


I've noticed that customised list forms lose any dataform web part(s) that were added. The destination file just strips it.
Is this usual? I haven't tried with OOTB web parts yet.

That should read "List Views" where the default web part has been converted to a dataview.

And now I see why. The ListID doesn't get modified to to match the new list. :(

I suppose this could be done programatically? But I have no idea where to start.

Managed to resolve this by substituting ListName for ListId within the DVWP XML.

It's ugly - and I'm pretty sure it'll break as soon as anyone changes the Display Name - but it works. :)

I also spelled this out in the List Description.
