creating new item in form library programmatically

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi all,

I have a form library with infopath form published in it. I am trying to create a new item programmatically in it which will contain a instance of the published infopath form. But its suggesting me to use SPFileCollection.Add() for that.


Can anyone show me some light how I can meet my requirement?

Creating a new document in Document Library from custom menu item (in the ECB)

Hello! I created a custom menu item in the ECB for a document library. I'd like for this to create a new document from this menu item. Additionally, I'd like to create a workflow where the Title of the document from which the menu action originates is inserted into a custom textfield in the new document that is created.

Unique Permission on every individual item in a SharePoint Form Library can result in very slow perf


Hi All,

I just want to know that can sharePoint performance become slow by assigning unique permission on every individual item ? I have a form library in which there are hundreds of items and every item has unique permissions.

FYI: I read the following blogs and they are of the opinion that SharePoint performance can become horribly slow by assigning unique permissions

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated..

Creating an Excel Spreadsheet programmatically using VB.NET

The Interoperability services make it very easy to work with COM Capable Applications such as Word and Excel. This article reveals using Excel from a managed application. Excel is the spreadsheet component of Microsoft Office 2000. The majority of Excel programmatic functionality is exposed through Automation via the type library Excel9.olb. The intention of this article is to express that a managed application can interrelate with Excel as a COM server.

Creating Reorderlist Programmatically


I hope to get some guidance on how to create reorder lists programmatically because of the situation described below. Thank you.

I have a page where I want to have a toDo Iist for each of several (typically 10) milestone categories. I can think of 3 options.

I don't know in advance how many 'active' categories there will be but I there is a known fixed total of about 20  categories, of which from 1 to 20 may be 'active'

1. Have one Master ReOrderList And Then Nest the Category ReorderLists Inside 

2. Create the reorderlists programmatically.

3. Brute force approach. Hardcode all 20 reorderlists and their associated sqldatasources, and then set visibility

depending on which category is active. This approach is the simplest but has the disadvantage of too much

repetitive code and the reorder lists would be in a fixed order, when I really want them to match the category order.




Assigning users when creating a list item in a workflow


I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.  When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.  When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.  How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?  Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?


Programmatically create an InfoPath form


I'm programmatically creating an InfoPath form using this article: http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-create-infopath-form-console-app.htm.


Everything works well up to 29 fields (my:field1 ... my:field29). After that it runs without an error and posts a form to the library however the icon does not switch to an infopath icon and the filename stays blanks. I don't believe this field specific, it seems to be happening when I use any 29 to 30 fields so I'm thinking its a memory issue with the stream reader.

Has anybody every had this issue before, is there a way to fix this?


Creating a custom column with a link to document (other than the name field) in document library



I have a document library with the standard name column linking to the document. However, we'd like to create a custom field and have that link to the document (and edit item menu).

How is this best accomplished?

Thanks in advance!


Copy the content of one form library to another form library



I have created a form library named "A" where I store all the info-path forms submitted by a certain group of people. In that form library I created a column "status". When the form is submitted the value of status will be "0". Once a person approves this form I am changing the status value to "1". If the value is changed to "1", that form should be copied or transferred to another form library named "B".

How can I implement this logic ? Any help...

create a secure new item form



i hope i can explain this the right way.

i'm using sharepoint services 3.0 and sharepoint designer

i have to create this senario:

the employee need to fill in a new item form to request for absence or vacation days.

for this i use the Absence and Vacation Schedule template. a good one!

but the thin is i have to modify the "new item form" that when the user open the "new item form" it has to get the id from the employe and join it to the id of his manager. so when the employee fill in the form it can only go to the employe his manager for approval. the purpose for this senario is that the employee dont get a chance to send his request to another manager or to the HR department without an aproval.

is there a workflow for it. or how can i join the employee id with the manager id?

and how can i create a web part that counts the vacation days of an employe and also display how many days he has left so he knows how many days he can request for?

hope some1 can help me with this


Calculated Columns in a Form Library receive error: Value does not fall within the expected range.


I have a forms library that posts the date the form was created. We would like to create a calculated column that allows us to look at these forms based on the month and year they were created. I had created a calculated column that extracts the month and replaces the number with a text string by using an if statement; "IF(MONTH([Proposal Date])=1,"January","") It goes on to evaluate each month and replace the number with the text string. This formula worked for quite some time, though now when I try to add any calculated columns or edit any existing calculated columns on this form library I receive the following error: Value does not fall within the expected range. Now my existing calculated columns (like the one above) do not work and I can not create new calcualted columns. Any insight would be awesome as this has been plaguing me for a couple of months now.

On New Item form, select item on choice dropdown based on query result.


I posted this on Experts Exchange awhile back with no answer, so here's hoping someone here has an idea :)

So I've mostly figured this problem out, but I need some help in getting over the hump... note that I'm using JavaScript to do this (SPServices) on SharePoint 07'.

I'm on the New Items page of a list. Based on a user's selection in a "Teacher" dropdown, I'm doing the following:

1.) Get the value of the Teacher field and several other fields (School and Visit Date)
2.) Run a CAML query based on those fields to find the last list item entered for that Teacher

So here's where I'm stuck...

I have 10 choice fields, all with choices 0, 4, 7, and 10. Depending on what they were set to in the last entered item (which I queried), I want to set the selected item on each of those dropdowns to equal that. So "Score 1" was set to "4" on the la

Infopath Brower enabled form not visible in the sharepoint library after being submitted

Hi, I have created a infopath browser enabled form to submit to a sharepoint form library, however the submitted forms are not visible in the sharepoint link structure.   I'm able to see them in the SPD structure.  I'm using infopath 2007 and MOSS. I actually created a SPD workflow which retrieves specific values from the submitted form and saves it to another sharepoint list. This works fine even if the forms are not visible. Appreciate any help. Thanks

InfoPath Form not showing up in Sharepoint Form Library

I have set up a template form setup that users can fill out and then by pressing the submit button sends an email.My current issue is, when I publish the form to sharepoint, I don't see it, I have sharepoint set to view all documents and I still don't see it.  I can get to the form by clicking the "view my form in browser" pop up after I'm done publishing it.  I would like the users to just be able to click on a link in the library, but I can't find where it was published.Any insight on this would be great thanks.
