Auto Form Filler In an Outside App

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
 

Hello everybody.

I have been looking for some ideas that can help me. I am trying to make a C# Application that detects a textbox in ANOTHER APPLICATION and fills it with  MyFillingString .  In other words I am trying to make an Auto Forms Filler But NOT to be used for web pages, Instead It will be used to fill another form from another application.

Any ideas would be so appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

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

  

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

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.

Auto populated 'New item form' not saving to sql

  
Hi, I have created a 'New item form' for a sql datasource via Sharepoint Designer. A lot of the fields are pre-populated using parameters pulled from a wedpart on the same aspx page. I have assigned the parameter to the field by setting the 'text' value to equal the parameter e.g. text="{$p3address3}". If I manually type values into the form (with no pre-populated at all) the data saves perfectly into the sql table but if I submit the form when I have pre-populated the fields then no data saves at all. Am I missing something? Is there a different way to set the values for my fields? Thanks Jeni

Workflow does not auto-trigger on form item change

  

Hello there,

Background: I am using an Infopath 2007 (Client based forms) form library, I am associated a condition based workflow which updates another list when ever a form changes. 

Problem: The workflow does not auto triggers when a form item changes.

I am aware that the workflow doesn't auto-trigger if the change is initiated via system account. I also have checked the option which says: 'automatically start the workflow whenever an item is changed'. Worklfows auto triggers easily on infopath web based forms and lists. 

Question: Does this mean that we can auto-start an infopath client based form on item  change?

Any help in this regard will be appreciated

JQuery Validate plugin to validate a ASP.NET Form

How to use getElementById to get the elements in a form

  
There are many ways of accessing form elements, of which the easiest is by using the cross-browser W3C DOM document.getElementById method. Before we learn more about this method, it would be useful to know something about the Document Object Model (DOM), the concept of HTML nodes or elements, and the concept of containers.

Each time you load an HTML page, the web browser generates an internal representation of the page in the form of an inverted tree structure. Let us look at a simple form. We will use this form later to demonstrate the use of the getElementById method.

form feild hints are not displaying for textboxses inside create user wizard?

  

Hi,

I'm using following JS code to display input hint box besides the textbox whenever that asp.net textbox receives focus. 

I'm doing this for a registration form and all of the textboxes are inside the asp.net create user wizard control.

<script type="text/javascript">
function addLoadEvent(func) {
  var oldonload = window.onload;
  if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {
    window.onload = func;
  } else {
    window.onload = function() {
      oldonload();
      func();
    }
  }
}

function prepareInputsForHints() {
	var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("TextBox");
	for (var i=0; i<inputs.length; i++){
		// test to see if the hint span exists first
		if (inputs[i].parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0]) {
			// the span exists!  on focus, show the hint
			inputs[i].onfocus = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "inline";
			}
			// when the cursor moves away from the field, hide the hint
			inputs[i].onblur = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "none";
			}
		}
	}
addLoadEvent(prepareInputsForHints);
</script>
span.
