InfoPath 2010 People Picker - Find Email Address

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I am creating a form that uses the people picker to find information on a user but it doesn't appear to contain an email address for the user. I can create another form that uses a web service to connect to the SharePoint 2010 user profile service and pull back the current user details but I want to be able to send data from the people picker to fill in parts of the form with that users details (includiong email) and not the current user

Infopath 2010 How to activate the people picker control

  
I am creating a form where i am populating a people picker with the logged on user. This is fine but how can i then activate the control to get it to lookup the display name and account type.   I am using a rule to set the AccountID field to be the Username function available in rules. Then on the form you have to click on the tick icon to finish the lookup. This is the bit i want to automate.   I also have c# code running in the background so am happy using .NET code to do this.   Thanks   Paul

InfoPath 2010, People Picker Control - problem with sharepoint group targeting

  

Hello!

I have developed InfoPath 2010 web form with People Picker Control. I want to set sharepoint group which would be used in People Picker Control to search people. Ok, I set sharpoint site url and aftet that - select sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group' I need. Everything works fine - I can select only people inside sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'.

Now I deploy my solutions (wsp package) on different site collection and sharepoint server installations. In this case People Picker Control can't find right sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'. Sometimes People Picker Control select another group, not that I have select in InfoPath Designer and sometimes People Picker Control select all users.

What's wrong with it and can I configure People Picker Control to select sharepoint group?

Formatting problem with Email from an Browser Enabled InfoPath 2010 Form in SharePoint 2010

  

I'm creating a form in InfoPath 2010 to be filled out in the browser within our SharePoint 2010 instance. It's pretty simple, four columns with total table width of about 650 pixels, textboxes, checkboxes, datepicker and one multiselect list box. The form is working fine up to the point where I invoke a data connection which emails the form to myself. When it arrives in my inbox, the format of the form included in the body of the email is funky. When I open the email and set it to a full screen viewing window (1440X900) the area that takes up the form exceeds the width of my viewing window and requires scroll bars to see all the fields on the form.

When printing the form from my email the area is so large that no data will show up in the printable area (it appears to be centered on the form and it is cutting off the "extra content" to the left and right which contains the form data as the user entered it). I'm using Outlook 2007. I also forwarded the email to a person who's using Outlook 2010 and they experienced the same problems as myself.

Things I've tried to fix it: Setting each column width, setting each control width to a pixel length (instead of using %). I added some code behind to switch the view to a two column view with a table width of 400px before it sends out the email. It's closer to being at a state where it's

Using Additional Fields from External Content Type in InfoPath 2010 External Item Picker

  

Hello, we've created an external content type for our store locations. Each location in the content type has a name, id, manager, region and so on. When we use this BCS content type as a field in a list, we are given the option to "Add a column to show each of these additional fields"

What would the equivalent be in an InfoPath form? When we add an External Item Picker to a form a number of fields are included in the form's data source, including a repeating group called BDCEntity with the following fields:

  • EntityDisplayName
  • EntityInstanceReference
  • EntityId1
  • EntityId2
  • EntityId3
  • EntityId4
  • EntityId5

Entity display name appears to be what we configure as the Display Field Name in the picker properties, and the EntityId1 is the location ID, which is the identifier on the external content type. EntityId2-5 are all blank.

We use region and other location attributes in workflows so how can we access all these other fields?

Thanks for your time.

Can you embed an Infopath 2007 form with MOSS 2007 in an Outlook 2010 email?

  

Hi,

MOSS 2007, Infopath 2007 and Outlook 2010

Is it possible to embed the Infopath Form in the email itself.

I read this link (point 1) http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/microsoft-office-infopath-2007-top-10-benefits-HA010165024.aspx, but I have been unable to do this?

Do you have to have Infopath 2007 on the client machine to be able to do this?

Thaks.

John.

Patch for VS 2010 Find and Replace Dialog Growing

  
One of the top reported Microsoft Connect issues with VS 2010 has been an issue with the Find and Replace dialog - which grows 16px each time you use it (which is pretty annoying). The Visual Studio team recently released a patch that fixes this issue. You can download and apply it here. Hope this helps, Scott P.S. A few people reported issues installing the patch if they had an older version of the Silverlight 4 tools installed.  If you see an error message that says you need an update to Visual Studio to support Silverlight 4, you can fix it by installing the latest Silverlight 4 tools release.
