InfoPath Filler - Hyperlink via datasource issue - always reverting to http://address/



I am trying to design an InfoPath Filler 2010 form (form based on a SharePoint List) and I want to create a dynamic URL based on another field in the form.

When I place an image on the form and create the hyperlink from it, I get the option to choose a data source.

I do this, but as soon as I click ok and publish the form, the formula is lost and it defaults to http://address/

Has anybody else experienced this? and if so, did you find a workaround to create a dynamic URL?

Kind Regards

ASP.NET Architecture - ASP.NET Worker Process - HTTP Pipleline - Http Modules and Handlers

"ASP.NET is a powerful platform for building Web applications, that provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and power for building just about any kind of Web application. Most people are familiar only with the high level frameworks like WebForms and WebServices which sit at the very top level of the ASP.NET hierarchy. In this article I'll describe the lower level aspects of ASP.NET and explain how requests move from Web Server to the ASP.NET runtime and then through the ASP.NET Http Pipeline to process requests.

HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden


(VB Express website directed me to ASP.NET Web Services which in turn redirected me to this forum).

 Hopefully someone can help me here...... 

I am using VIsual Web Developer and downloaded the small business application to use as a starting point to help my wife get a website up for her small business. When I load the application, I can F5 and it runs fine but as soon as I make any modification to the app and hit F5, I get the HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden when it tries to show the website.

I notice a pop up that occurs when I run that allows me to choose the link for my app and it displays correctly (I close the webpage that has the error on it).

This seems like a pain, is there a setting I'm missing - I would think that this should "just work".
