    InfoPath Auto Print


    I have an infopath form that has an information view and upon filling out the necessary questions in that view on submit it switches them to a corresponding view based on the choices they made in the information view.  What I am wanting to do is on submit have the document Print 2 different views to the end users desktop. Unless a checkbox is checked then I do not want it to print or switch views.  Can anyone help me with this, atleast the first part of the question.   I might be able to get the rest figured out if you can give me that starting point.

    I think you would need code for this, since there is not a print action.

    Typically you would create a specific print view, this is best practice since most Infopath views are built for screen input not to fit on a paper.  In View properties you can set the view for printing.

    Then rather than two views you would make your print view have two pages one for each or something, unless you need to send it to different printers or something.

    You also can have routines that will autoprint documents. That could maybe be simpler rather than putting the code in the form itself. Trigger a batch process instead.

    Hey Clay,

    The pages that will print will vary upon the selection on the information view page.  For instance Document A will print out for the correct state.  And B(Service) or C(Sales) will print along with it depending on the choices made on the primary view.  Any suggestion you can give to tell how I might do that?  Perhaps an example because I can not begin to figure it out.

    This is the same as you would use in a non-print view.

    You would add to your print view everything possible.  Put each group of components in a section to make it easier.

    Then use conditinal formating to hide the sections when they do not apply. 

    So if it is not sales hide the sales related components, etc.

    Awesome Thanks Clay!

    This will work well, keeping it simple even.
