Button in a form that does not submit


I've been trying to figure this out all afternoon but my google-fu seems to be failing me. I'm setting up a page with a fairly large form, which has one field that is going to require some kind of popup page that will allow the user to perform a lookup. At the moment I'm only prototyping the page so I'm actually only attempting to a the button up to fire an alert when the button is clicked instead of generating a lookup screen. However it seems that no matter what I do the button causes the form to submit.

I remember one of the very first ASP .NET beginner videos I ever watched went through configuring a button to perform actions without submitting, but I can't seem to figure out which one it was.

InfoPath form web part stops the close on submit

I have successfully published HTML browser enabled InfoPath 2010 forms to form libraries in SharePoint 2010. Users can navigate to the libraries and click new docuiment and fill out and submit forms, and the behavior of submit is as programmed in the form namely I have a concat rule for form name and chose action after submit to close the form with a success message. The problem I am seeing is a little abstract so stay with me while I explain. I'm hosting a number links to web part pages with the infopath web part on them. I use a links web part to aggrigate about 16 forms links on a single page. Users can successfully click on a link, are migrated to the web part page that has the form displayed in the infopath web part and all is well till they click the submit (on the ribbon, or custom button or whatever) The form does successfully get saved into the form library, but the form does not close. I need to make this process very simple for users without any training expended on the process. I'd like to shift focus to the previous web page, or close the form or something dramatic visually to show the user that they have completed the form fill out, and allow them to fill another form. Codebehind examples gratefully accepted! /Robin    

Custom Edit form - close modal dialog and navigate to page

Hi, I created one custom edit form for my document library, replaced default save and cancel buttons with input buttons and added the form action to them. Then I set my page as default edit form. When I click edit button, my custom form opens in modal pop up. When I try to save the item by clicking new save button, item gets saved but pop remains as it is. Now, I want the modal pop up to get closed and navigate to page other than the parent page with some parameters after I click save button. How can I achieve this? Thanks!!

Uploading Files with Info Path Form




we'd like to provide an Info Path Forms Services based form to give users an easy web based ability to upload new documents with some metada and doeing some plausability tests to check if the metadata do make sense. The form will be presented to external users to provide documents in a structured and qualified way.


So we created the InfoPath form and added a repeating "File-Attachment" control to the form. But with this control the files are attached to the InfoPath form itself and not uploaded to a document library. And so the internal users can not easyly work with the documents.


So what would options do we have to customize InfoPath to provide an possiblility to upload documents to a document library?




Attach File causing JavaScript error on Custom Form

Let me first apologize for this fairly large post. I've basically laid out the problem I'm having and then how I solved it initially then what the final problem.  The reason I put all of the steps is because I am open to any suggestions about handling this different.  If you want to skip to the actual problem, scroll down until you see the text "-----Go here if you want to see the actual problem-----"

Okay, so now the problem:
I have a lookup field called Room Name in a calendar that is looking data up from a list of rooms.  I have programmatically set the permissions of the room name list items to only allow members of different groups to see certain items.

When people go to the calendar and create a new event, they can only choose rooms that I set their group as having permission to choose.  This works great, but it has an unfortunate side effect.  When viewing an event on the calendar, if you are not of a memeber of the group that has read permissions for the item selected in Room Name, you can't see it.  This makes sense internally because of the way I set permissions.  For each item in the list of rooms, if you are a member of a group that should be able to read that item, I give you read permission, otherwise you have no permission for it.

Unfortunately, the viewing of the events is done by people other than those who create the

Programatically close web enabled form after submit


Hi all

I have an InfoPath 2007 form, which is web enabled and deployed to Forms Server 2007.

On the form I have a button. What I want to happen when the button is pressed is this:

1. My custom code behind should be executed. The custom code calls an external aseembly (common to ALL my InfoPath forms) which has a method that includes a dataconnection.Execute which will submit the form.

2. Close the form IF the submit went well.

Currently, I have a code behind and a rule on the button. What I am trying to get working is that the code behind sets a status flag on the form to "Success" and then executes the data connection. If an exception is thrown, I set the status flag to something else ("Failed") and rethrow the exception. In the rule of the button I then check this status field in the condition of the rule and if it is set to Success I close the form. What happens is, that the form is not closed uppon succesfully execution of the data connection. I am not sure in what order the code is run; Is the rule fired first or is the .NET code behind? It appears that the .NET code IS fired... and if the form was closed in the rule, then I wouldn't expect that to happen. So that means the rule is fired last. On the other hand the value set in one of the fields is not present upon validation of the condition of the rule, so tha

PreSaveAction is not firing for a custom save button on a Custom List Form

Hi Everybody,
I've created a custom list form using SPD. Now I want to put a custom button for saving and redirecting to another page based on a logic. I am using following script for making a custom Save button.

<input type="button" value="Submit" name="Submit" onclick="{ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit;__redirect={Confirm.aspx}')}  " />
When the user clicks this button, I am able to save the values, but the validation I have implemented in the PreSaveAction() is not getting activated. I don't understand where the problem is.

Is validation with PreSaveAction()  works only with OOB SaveButton ?

Thanks in advance,

Custom Submit button rule breaks down in the middle of the actions


I have an infopath form that is published to a SharePoint library.  After the form is filled out, the user clicks a custom "Submit" button which has a rule with the following actions: 1) submit to main connection (database table), 2) submit to connection (SharePoint library - which starts an approval workflow in SharePoint), 3) thank-you message, and 4) close form without prompt.

99% of the time, all works well with form data getting submitted to database table, and also to the SharePoint library (which triggers the approval workflow).  1% of the time, when my custom submit button gets clicked, only the first rule action performs (i.e., data is submitted to main database connection), but the process stops at the action to submit to the SharePoint list.

I have checked and triple-checked the actions in the submit button rule, and they appear to be correct - and, in fact, behave correctly 99% of the time.  It's that 1% when the rule breaks at the point of submitting to SharePoint library that has me crazy.  This occurs only sporadically with different users -- users who it works correctly for most of the time.

I also have a form field I created called "DupChecker" that looks in the database table to see if the exact record exists, and if it does, it will not allow the user to submit it again.  So when the use
