    Can we open an infopath form in document library directly in a portal?

     I have a document library that saves infopath forms. When a user clicks the link of the form in the document library, the form should be open in the portal. Is this possible ? Can anyone tell me how to do this or suggest me any article for this?

    What do you mean "open in the portal"? Are you talking about browser forms (IPFS)?

     Yes, Normally when we open the form it opens in complete browser. But I want it to be opened in the portal.

    Sorry, I'm still not clear on what you mean. I understand that there are two ways to open a form when using SharePoint:

    1. In the browser (Internet Explorer), using IPFS.

    2. In the client, i.e. Microsoft Office InfoPath.

    I'm not sure what is the portal that you mention.

    When we open the form in the first way as you mentioned, the form opens in the browser and the form occupies the whole browser space. But what I want is that form should fit in the portal that is with all the top tabs, left menus and all that. Something like, the master page should remain the same and the form should be the content page. Am i making sense to you?

     Lemme explain it this way. Normally when we open a browser enabled infopath form, saved in the document library it opens like this.

    But what I want is to show it as a part of portal like, something like the below shown screen when clicked on the link of the form saved in the document library.

    I think the second pic is not the correct one what I intended to show, this pic would be more relevant

     As no one replied, I thought I didn't frame my question properly. So I'm re-framing my question this way.

    When some one opens a form in a document library, it opens in this way

    But what I want is, Whne he clicks the link in document library to open the form it should directly open in the portal with in the content page as any webpart like this,

     

    Can this be done?
