Infopath browser form - odd behaviour on auto expanding multi line text boxes

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

 

I have a browser form with a multi line text box. The height is set to be AUTO. Within the client all is fine. When opened as an administrator approved form the text box automatically adds a new line for every 20 characters you type.

 

So if you type 40 characters without pressing enter you get 2 blank lines appear under you text that you CANNOT remove.

 

I have tested this on a new form with various multi line text boxes. The width setting is unimportant, the spell check setting is unimportant.

 

If i fix the height then the issue goes away but this is not any good.

 

I cannot use rich text boxes as i have around 40 text boxes on the form and if they are rich text they take around 10 minutes to load in the browser (this is another issue i have)

 

Thanks in advance

 

Paul

Form Services 2010 - potential bug in plain text - multi-line boxes

  

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone else has found the following and perhaps a resolution.  (Blog post with image examples here: Click)

Scenario:

An InfoPath Form created in Microsoft InfoPath Designer 2010 and is installed as an Administrator approved template.

  • Form Control: Text Box

Display:

  • Read-only – No
  • Enable spelling checker – Yes
  • Enable AutoComplete – Yes
  • Multi-line – Yes

Size:

  • Height: Auto

Compatibility Settings:

  • Form Type: Web Browser Form (2010)

Issue:

  • Browser: Internet Explorer 7, 8, Google Chrome

When running the Form in the web and a user types into the multi-line text box; after 20 characters the text box gets bigger by 1 row.

On evaluation using the IE8 development toolbar.  It would appear that the control is rendered as a <textarea> HTML element and JavaScript runs on the 22<sup>nd</sup> character and adds 1 to the “rows” attribute of the <textarea> element.

For example:

InfoPath Form and Multi-line Text box

  
Hi,

I'm using a multi-line textbox in my infopath form, the text scorlls when user enter texts that exceed the width/height of the text box, thats fine. But after user submits the form, the textbox just dsiplays one line of text with with "..." at the end and user needs to use "End" key or drag the text using the mouse key to see the remaining text. We want to display all the text that user entered instead of "...". What setting needs to be done in the inforpath forms.

Also I wanted to know if there is any known issue using Rich Text field in Infopath form with SharePoint InfoPath service.

Thanks in advace,

Attachment upload error on browser based InfoPath form

  

Hello,

I am having an interesting problem with browser based InfoPath forms in SharePoint 2007.  For some reason the file attachment control is not working any more.  It was working fine in July, but now it will not allow file attachments over a few kb.  I tried a 34KB file and I get the error below, a 2KB file works fine.

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view

  

Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field

  

Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads
_spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("lockFields");

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
{
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

Deploying InfoPath 2007 form to WSS 3.0 as browser enabled

  

Please Help! I've created an Infopath form and wanted to deploy the form as browser enabled to WSS 3.0? What are the different options I can do this? If i cannot use a form then i would like to  create a custom list with all the form fields but the user should be able to enter information in the list and he should see only the information related to him. I don't want to give access of the whole list to each and every user. Only the administrator should be able to see the whole list. The form was actually a user access request form.

Any help and suggestions is appreciated.

Thanks

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

  
My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

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
