InfoPath Filler Questions...

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hello.  I was wondering if someone knew whether InfoPath Filler was available separate from Designer?  I would like to make InfoPath Forms available to my users, but I won't be using Browser Based Forms. You might say, I am looking for an Adobe Reader-type approach to my forms...  Like, deploying Filler as a free reader to my users... Thanks, Gene.

Infopath 2010 Browser Based Form Vs Infopath 2010 Filler Based Form Issue

  
I have created a detailed infopath form that is connecting to multiple sharepoint lists, some of which contain thousands of rows and dozens of columns.  To tailor for the data load i have enabled the form to only pull in data as needed and on some of the lists i have created 5 or 6 data connections to the same list, each only looking at a certain set of data, and as you make your way through the form selecting your options, the data is pulled in. If i preview this form from within Infopath or if i launch it using Infopath filler this works great, the data is pulled through in under a second.  However if i then publish the form to the browser and launch it through the browser, it now takes roughly 30 seconds to pull in the data. My question is therefore this,  Is there something i can do to speed up the way the data is pulled in when launched through the browser?  are there transport protocols i can alter or something like that? maybe config in central admin or infopath config? any help would be gratefully appreciated as if i can not get the form to pull the data in fast through the browser then the whole project is a waste of time as my management team will never go for the solution if it is slow and will get slower as more data is added. thanks

Infopath Changed Event code triggering in preview but not in web filler.

  
Hi there, I've written some code for a changed event hookup on a field in infopath 2010. The form is for submission to a sharepoint 2010 forms library. What the code does is fill in a specific value into a field depending on the selected value from a combo-box elsewhere on the form. When i preview this in Infopath 2010 it works perfectly but when i fill out the form through the web interface it simply does nothing. I've got another piece of code which executes on load and this works perfectly in both the preview and the web filler. What it does is just set the value of a field when the form loads. Here is the code, could someone tell me what i'm doing wrong? public void InternalStartup() { EventManager.XmlEvents["/my:myFields/my:service_level"].Changed += new XmlChangedEventHandler(service_level_Changed); EventManager.FormEvents.Loading += new LoadingEventHandler(FormEvents_Loading); } public void service_level_Changed(object sender, XmlEventArgs e) { // Write your code here to change the main data source. XPathNavigator xroot = MainDataSource.CreateNavigator(); XPathNavigator serviceLevel = xroot.SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:service_level",NamespaceManager); XPathNavigator xest = xroot.SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:est_cost", NamespaceManager); switch (serviceLevel.Value)

Infopath questions

  

Ok, I'm working on a project which keeps getting increasingly more massive, and I have some questions, when responding, just number the answers how I number the questions, thanks!

1. Is there a way to have a text field auto-calculate userName the first time the form is viewed, then reload the same userName any subsequent times it is loaded, regardless of the user accessing it?

2. How would I make it so a day after a form is submitted, a field shows up? I know it would use rules, but what would the rule look like?

3. How do I get item-level permissions in sharepoint? I need it so a form is pretty much read-only for all users other than "admin" and the creator of the infopath file.

I appreciate any help offered.

Hi guys,

Does anyone know how link to sharepoint so that it opens an Infopath 2010 form through the web interface as opposed to the desktop client? If u use the Encoded Absolute URL in my workflow emails it tries to download / open the document through my desktop client.

Thanks!

Is it possible to convert an InfoPath 2010 Filler form to an InfoPath 2010 Web Browser form?

  

I have built an InfoPath Filler form that I deployed to a SharePoint 2010 Form Library.  While deploying, I checked that the form could be opened up using a web browser.  I receive a warning that the form template has been published to the server but if can only be opened in InfoPath Filler

This is a problem, because it was decided that the form would be required to be opened using the browser.  I made changes to the form so that it abided by the rules which allow it to be opened using a broswer (There were no design checker warnings or errors).

This is the second form that had this problem.  To fix it the first time, I simply created a new form that was not a filler form.  Now that it has happened again, I wonder if there is a way to convert the filler form to a web browser form to save development time.

Can this be done?  Any other suggestions?

Many thanks.

InfoPath Filler - Hyperlink via datasource issue - always reverting to http://address/

  

Hi,

I am trying to design an InfoPath Filler 2010 form (form based on a SharePoint List) and I want to create a dynamic URL based on another field in the form.

When I place an image on the form and create the hyperlink from it, I get the option to choose a data source.

I do this, but as soon as I click ok and publish the form, the formula is lost and it defaults to http://address/

Has anybody else experienced this? and if so, did you find a workaround to create a dynamic URL?

Kind Regards

Giles

Linq qry with order by basic questions

  

I have never tried a group by with linq, now I do and I'm stuck.

I try to convert this sql statement to its linq counterpart :

SELECT COUNT(tb_Mailer_Smses.Id) AS [cnt], tb_Mailer_mailing.Id As [Id]
,SUM( CASE WHEN tb_Mailer_smses.DLRStatus = 200 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) As [Delivered]
,SUM(CASE WHEN DLRStatus BETWEEN 300 AND 499 THEN 1 WHEN DLRStatus BETWEEN 800 AND 899 THEN 1 END) AS [Errors]
FROM tb_Mailer_mailing INNER JOIN
tb_Mailer_Smses ON tb_Mailer_mailing.Id = tb_Mailer_Smses.MailingId
WHERE tb_Mailer_mailing.ApplicationId = 1
GROUP BY tb_Mailer_mailing.Id


Is there some one who can me show me the convertion process ?


Questions about getter and setter

  

I created a getter and Setter in Visual Basic. I have some questions though. Please look at the code below.
Here are my questions.

A.) At line 1 below, should "pieces" be declared as Private?
B.) In the IDE at lines 4 and 7 the IDE keeps changing those variables to uppercase so that the property name "Pieces" is the
    same as the variable name "pieces".Should I instead define the integer pieces with an underscore: _pieces ?
That is the only way I can get around the IDE forcing the variable to become uppercase.

 

1  Dim pieces As Integer

2  Public Property Pieces() As String
3  Get

4  Return pieces
5  End Get

6 Set (ByVal values As String)
7   pieces=value
8 End Set
9 End Property
