missing edit template in Form Library Advanced Settings

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I just noticed that the ability to edit an infopath (published) form from the advanced settings within the form library is missing.  I looked at several other form libraries and noticed the same problem.  I am the site collection admin, and my rights have not changed.   How would the link to edit a pubished form dissapear from the advanced settings page?

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

Using the Inventory Tracking Template - how to edit the "log a sale" form

We are using the Inventory Tracking Template.  Although its a good form as is there are a few modifications that would make it even better.

When you use the "Log a sale" feature - the new form pops up with the title "Transactions: New Item"   - every item has an associated Category.   We have many items and need a way to filter them so the user doesn't have to scroll through so many items.  I thought using the category field would be best.   In a perfect world the user selects the category in the form and then the form only shows the items in that category that are available.  How do i acomplish this?

Thanks in advance for your help (and patience)

Missing Custom Control Library Project Template in Visual C# 2010 Express?


I am using Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Express Version 10.0.30319.1 RTMRel and I want to add a Project for a WPF Custom Controls library. Note: The WPF Custom Control Item Template is included and can be added to a WPF Application project.

Does anyone know:

  1. Should the WPF Custom Control Library Template be part of this application edition?
  2. Where is the online documentation that states exactly which features are and are not included in each edition?
  3. What can be recomended as a work around?


Document Library Missing Columns in Edit Properties

Hi, I'm having an issue with a specific Site Collection.  The issue is that some of the columns do not show up when you go to the Edit Properites page, or when the user creates a new document.  The items can be edited when opened in a data sheet, but the users would like to be able to edit them on the Edit Properties page.  They say they haven't made any changes, but this has happened at least 3 times with differenct document libraries on this specific site.  Has anyone else ever dealt with this?  Anyone got a solution?  Let me know if more info is needed.  Thanks.

Infopath Form template when used not promoting data to a library view




Have a really strange issue here that I can't figure out and wondered if any of you have had this issue?

Basically we have 5 libraries and the infopath form moves between them and there is consistent promoted fields in all the libraries.

We have 4 forms per lib with all the same properties promoted.

But one of the forms does not seem to show it data in the table view (you can see it in edit form (SP Page)???) for lib 4 (it shows in all the others).


I can't determine why this is occuring and what I need to do to fix it.

Can't relink infopath forms to a new template in the form library


I have an InfoPath form that has been working fine.  I made a change to the form, turned off printing and republished the form.  I then relinked all forms, or thought I did.  The new forms created work fine.  Most of the ones at the beginning are relinked and working fine.  There are about 228 forms in the middle that won't relink and you can't update them.  If I try to update the properties, it has an invalid link.  If I edit the form and submit it back with the changes, I get the following error message box, but only if I actualy make a change on the form and try to save it.


InfoPath cannot save the form
The specified location is not valid, not available, or you do not have the correct permissions
Check the spelling of the file name and verigy that the location is correct, or contact the server administrator.

Is there another way that I can force the relink?  There is also a field that does no populate in the properties.  It won't let me add that metadata.  I have a designer workflow that takes the ID created for a document/item and copies it to the field.  This is then used to create the unique name of the document.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RPC and C++: Build a Template Library for Distributed Objects Containing Multiple Interfaces


Building a C++ template library for developing distributed object-oriented applications using Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) allows the programmer to design RPC applications that are composed of components that implement multiple interfaces. This article demonstrates the use of techniques such as assembly-level thunks to build machine code on the fly, and C++ features such as templates, conversion operators, virtual destructors and virtual function tables. Along the way, familiar C++ interfaces and classes are transformed into a distributed application. The benefits of using distributed objects rather than raw remote procedures, which include writing fewer lines of code, is explained.

jquery datepicker not popping up in Gridview Edit Template textbox


I have a gridview that I can't for the life of me get the datepicker calender to pop up for.  I've been using the datepicker for months very successfully for a variety of textboxes on the page and inside of formviews but this is the first time I've tried using with gridview.  I didn't expect any issues however can't seem to find anything to work.  I have searched the forums for 2 days and attempted any suggestions found within the solutions to no avail.  I've tried using the CSS to link the datepicker but everything stopped working when I changed the code and my page which uses a css style already got all distorted looking.  Please help!

Here is my gridview (only included a part b/c it is large and am only having problem with the datepicker for the date completed text box)

<asp:GridView ID="GridViewCompleted" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
        AutoGenerateColumns="False" BackColor="#CCCCCC" BorderColor="#999999" BorderStyle="Solid"
        BorderWidth="3px" CellPadding="4" DataKeyNames="job_id" DataSourceID="SourceJobProjectCompleted"
        ForeColor="Black" CellSpacing="2">

Can you hide the "Form Template Conflict" message?


We have 100s of Infopath 2003 forms published on our Sharepoint site (MOSS 2007).  These forms are updated constantly.  The problem we have is that anytime we change the form's design (ex. change wording on the form), the user will get the "Form Template Conflict" message when they click on the form.  This is very confusing to them, and although we've asked them to click on "Replace form", they still get confused.

This message is very confusing to anyone, not just a user.  We would like to suppress this message so that every single time we update a form, they don't have to see this.  I'm not sure why it even saves a copy locally on their machines, anyway.  The fact is that in 100% of all cases, they will need to replace the form on their computer.  Renaming the forms every time we edit them is not an option - there are too many and links would all be broken. 

Can anyone tell us how to "hide" or "suppress" this error for our users?  Or design a form on the back-end that won't show this?  Could possibly changing security settings prevent this?  Any suggestions would be appreciated on how to prevent this message from popping every time we update a form.

listview 3.5 bind dropdownlists edit item template VB.NET


I am trying to do this with many issues of data binding doubling the amount and not setting selectedValue on dropdownlist. I have read some posts and they help but I am missing a crucial piece. My problem is that my dropdownlist is doubling the amount of records for the dropdownlist. Instead of "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE", I am getting "YES;NO;SELECT A VALUE;YES;NO;YES;NO". My database is correct with the UPDATE part but the rebind after update is failing horribly.

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If IsPostBack Then
            If Session("ACTIVETAB").ToString() = Session("SUBCONTRACTSATABNO").ToString() Then
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

    Public Function loadlookups(ByVal id As String, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewItemEventArgs) As DataTable
        Select Case id
            Case "ddlCertReceived"
                dt = GetLookupTable("SubcontractsA", "Sub 1 Cert Received")
                Dim ddlCertReceived As DropDownList = _
                CType(e.Item.FindControl("ddlCertReceived"), DropDownList)
                ddlCertReceived.DataSource = dt
                ddlCertReceived.DataTextField = "lup_text"

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...

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.
