    InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    If you have any InfoPath 2010 questions (including SharePoint-related InfoPath questions), feel free to ask them here or in your own thread.  I look forward to them...

    EDIT: I just realized that I'm still using InfoPath 2007. I thought our upgrade was to 2010... Sorry in advance!

     

    Hello. I have an unusual question.

    For multiple reasons, we cannot have our InfoPath form on the Internet, connected to a SQL back-end (the kind of data we're collecting is personal and not all our locations where we will be collecting data have Internet access). So, I am having to distribute the InfoPath forms using jump drives and connecting them to an Access back-end. 

    How can I configure InfoPath such that I do not need to make new data connections each time the users arrive at a new computer with the jump drive?

    How can I set the security so that they are not asked to validate their desire to proceed into working with the form?

    Thanks.

    Hi warrtalon, Do you have any idea about how to use multiple select boxes in web browser compatible forms through InfoPath 2010? Thanks!

    How to use them?  What do you mean?  This is a new feature of 2010 and it just works - it doesn't require configuration.  Have you tried it, and it didn't work, or something else?  Which exact multi-select box are you using?  Dropdowns, radio buttons, checkboxes, combo boxes, etc? Let me know, and I'll be sure to answer quickly.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Thanks for quick reply. I used a wrong template. Now I found the right version which has multiple select boxes for browser compatible form. It seems 2010 Infopath uses a different extension rather than .xsn. Do we use it in the same way as before when we configure the feature.xml and workflow.xml for an Infopath task edit form in SharePoint workflow?

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    It still uses .xsn. what are you seeing?  Every 2010 form template I've created is an .XSN file type.

    I don't know about feature.xmla and workflow.xml, but I do know that we can now customize workflow task forms in SharePoint Designer 2010 out of the box, so I don't know that you even have to worry about the method you're familiar with.

    I took a template instead of a form. Should look carefully on the new interface.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    hi warrtalon, I built a web form, but it can't pass the design checker when I have verify on server checked. Are we able to use InfoPath 2010 with MOSS 2007? Thanks! I have a multiple select box, a secondary data connection for pulling information from a SharePoint list and a submit control set to hosting environment in the form.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    no, of course not. you cant publish a 2010 form to 2007 at all. you can build 2007 forms in 2010, but it removes the new 2010 capabilities to ensure compatibility. browser form restrictions are on the forms services side, not the infopath side. so, the new browser form features are not related to what you can do in ip2010. they have everything to do with what forms services 2010 allows, and that only exists in sp2010.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Greetings!

    I have just installed infopath 2010 (by upgrade from 2007) on a windows 7 64 bit machine and both the .net programmability features and the visual studio features within the installation options were marked with a red cross as 'not available'.  I proceeded with the install (Office 2010) only to find that the custom code function is not available in infopath (button greyed out).  I have seached the web and cannot find any information on how to enable this feature. Note I had this functionality in the previous installation of infopath 2007.

    I am of the understanding that .net 2, 3, and 3.5 are inherently installed in windows 7 (the .net 2 feature apparently being the one required for this feature within the Office 2010 installation) and under the windows installed programs list there are a number of instances of visual C++ (2005 & 2008 not 2010) however I have no idea where to go from here.  Can anyone help?

    Phil

    Re above, I have since determined that the install options are available if Infopath 2007 is uninstalled.  Further to this, in 2010, custom code is only available for C# and visual basic.  Any previous forms with other script (eg java) must be rewritten in either C# or visual basic if you wish to edit or update them in Infopath 2010.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    This is a publishing related questions for InfoPath 2010. Is it possible to programmatically publish an InfoPath form using C#? I could never find an answer with InfoPath 2007 and figured that it was not possible with 2007. I wanted to publish to email based on task list in SharePoint. I had written code to create a task for a group of people to fill out a form; I would like to to publish to email based on the people the task was assigned to instead of open up InfoPath and selecting an email group or individual emails. Any help would be appreciated in solving this. Thanks.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Do you mean submit to email?  Publishing is when you publish the form template to SharePoint after making changes.  Submitting is when you have an XML form open that is based on the template, and you are submitting it to the specified location (email, form library, etc.).  Is there a reason you need to do it with code instead of just using the built-in functionality?  I can't tell exactly what you're doing nor why code was required for creating a task.  I would do all of this with a codeless form and codeless workflow unless there are some specifics to your requirements not mentioned yet.

    Warrtalon:
    Thanks for the quick reply. 

    It is publishing. In InfoPath 2007, if you use the "Publishing Wizard", it gives you four options on publishing a form:

    • To a SharePoint server with or without InfoPath Forms Services
    • To a list of e-mail recipients
    • To a network location
    • As an installable form template (requires Microsoft Visual Studio

    I used the "To a list of e-mail recipients" so the user could fill out a form in Outlook 2007 and submit the filled out form to a SharePoint library.

    Below is the scenario:
    Each year a company requires its employees (~700 employees) to fill out an attestation form. The form has to be filled out and the company needs to be able to know who has and has not filled out the form. Each employees has 7 days to fill out the form or they will receive an email telling them to fill out the form. After the seventh day warning, they receive an email every three days until the form is submitted to the SharePoint library.

    I create a user control in SharePoint to create a task for each employee (~700) in a task list. The task list has a workflow that kicks off and basically waits 7 days before sending a reminder to the employee about filling out the form unless they fill it out before the 7 day window expires. After creating the task for each employee, I had to open up InfoPath to publish "to a list of e-mail recipients" to send the form to each employee. It would be nice to be able to automate this in a workflow instead of having to have someone open InfoPath to publish; for example, new employees would need to fill out the attestation form and the process would have to be repeated. One click would be a lot nicer.

    The client would like to send the form using the email option. I hopes this helps in understanding the case. Let me know if I should be doing this another way or if publishing to email through code is possible. Thanks again for the quick reply.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Hy,

     we have a lot of forms developped in infopath 2003 with vbscript inside.

    They work well in infopath 2007. 

    For 2010 version, i've read that scripting was no more supported in version 2010. Is-it possible to easy migrate vscript code in managed code ?

    Thank for your replies

    Hi

    i am migrating my infopath 2007 templates to infopath 2010.

    but for some of the templates it gives XML scema validation error, multiple namespace error.

    please be advised that some of the templates contains the managecode as well as the data connections also. 

    Please advise.

    Regards,

    Dipesh
