Infopath Messagebox SharePoint Web Form

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


I have a requirement to display a messagebox when clicking a button on an info path form when submitting data or when a drop down list value changes.

Infopath will provide a data saved message box in a web enabled form. How do i use the same functionality to display my custom message boxes?

Insert image into Infopath form and save to SharePoint as PDF file


I have an InfoPath web-enabled form in MOSS 2007, that is integrated with a K2 blackpoint process for an approval workflow.

Once the form (a Purchase Order request form) has been approved in the K2 workflow process, I switch the form view to a "print-friendly" view for the requestor to view from the browser.  However, now I need to go one step further with this scenario:

1) I need to somehow insert/embed an image with the scanned-in signature of the approver (likely stored in a SP doc library) at the signature line section of my form.  Also, what are the security requirements for storing such images, but not granting all users access to these (e.g. only services accounts that need to access this for embedding into the form, etc.)?

2) Then I need to convert this final "print-friendly" view of the form (with the signature image) to a PDF document so that I can store it in SharePoint (and email it to the requestor using K2's email event capabilities).

Can anyone help me with a solution to both of these requirement, or point me to some resources for this (even 3rd party components are open-game).



How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

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.

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

How to prevent automatic update from sharepoint list on Infopath 2007 form

Hi there, I've got an Infopath 2007 form on MOSS 2007. I have a custom list in sharepoint and the infopath form has a data connection to that list to receive data. Is there any way to prevent automatic update on the values in the form that is received from the list. I'd like the new form to have updated info received from the list. However, the old/existing forms that were created should have the data that were available at the time when the form was created. Let me know if this is not clear and I'll try to explain more. Thanks,Pman http://www.pmansLab.com/

Cannot publish InfoPath 2010 form template to SharePoint Server 2010 RC

Hi all, I am MSFT in Vietnam. I created a SharePoint list using InfoPath 2010 RTM 64bit. After publishing it to SharePoint 2010 RC, I see an error message:  Click on button "Show Details" the message is The list schema does not match the schema of this form. Refresh the data source and publish the form again. When I create new item based on published SharePoint list, I can see plain form not browser enabled InfoPath form. I checked InfoPath Form Services, everything seems to be good. What should I do to publish SharePoint list from InfoPath 2010 to SharePoint 2010 as browser enabled form?

Infopath Form Data submitting to Sharepoint 2010 List

Making a Client intake form that once submitted will send data to  a sharepoint 2010 List called contacts. Short Summary the form will have repeating fields and alot of information to submit. I have looked and read all over but I cannot find an easy step by step guild on how to submit the form data like that. Long Summary on the sharepoint site a button will open a form for adding a new client.  once the form has been filled out and the user hits submit sharepoint will then create a User File, in clients file, and take the data and put it into contacts list. I am trying to make use of Sharepoint as I would with access, meaning the more information I have on a client the easier it will be to mail merge letters, motions, basicly any file prepaired stuff. So once I have css designed forsharepoint to make it look the way I want then the forms should intergrate perfect

InfoPath 2007 - Publishing Creates multiple columns on SharePoint Form Library (GUIDS apparently are

I have been working this issue for 2 days now.  This has happened to me in the past and I was able to work through it.  It doesn't appear that this time I am going to be so lucky. Issue Description: When publishing an InfoPath form a new column is created that has the same name as the correct one, but a new GUID is created. Troubleshooting steps: I have read this article: http://www.delphi-ts.com/blogs/lozzi/post/2009/06/03/Duplicate-site-columns-in-MOSS-from-InfoPath-Forms.aspx   This was the solution the last time I had this problem.  However, no matter what I do, it is not working now.  I have a column named User Name which is the username of the person that submitted the InfoPath form for use with my Visual Studio workflow.  When the workflow kicks off, it reads this column and attempts to get the value.  The value is blank because a new column with the name User Name now exists and that is where the value is stored.  I attempted to fix it by remapping the GUIDs as described in the article.  I also reverted the code to a previous version from TFS.  None of these worked.   I now have 3 columns called User Name and I can remap the GUID to the second column and third column.  But when I try to map it to the first column (the one I need) it doesn't work. The first column that is circled is the correct column. 

Map an InfoPath form field to a SharePoint column

I am trying to create a custom SharePoint list template feature (feature.xml, schema.xml, the whole nine yards), which is based on the OOTB XML Form Library in MOSS 2007. I copied the XmlFormLibrary feature out of the FEATURES folder on my SharePoint server, and made a few minor modifications (changed the feature name, new GUID, added some fields in schema.xml, created a new content type for it, etc...).

What I ultimately want to do is publish an InfoPath form template into it as the document template for the library, and I would like to be able to map certain fields in the form template to fields in my custom SharePoint library template. In InfoPath, I open the Publishing Wizard and go through the typical steps to publish to a Document Library. I then choose the columns in my form that I want to promote to fields in the form library, and select the appopriate fields to map to in the form library. I publish the form, and do not get any errors or warnings.

However, when I choose "New" from the form library and fill out the form and save it, only certain fields in the library are actually being populated from the form. Specifically, this seems to work fine for a date/time field I am using, but does not work for the "Location" field. I am using the OOTB "Location" field from the "Core Contact and Calendar Columns" group. Ev

Add a New Item to a Custom Sharepoint List and Sharepoint Calendar from one Infopath form.


I am trying to create an infopath form for requesting time off.  Once the request is approved I want the form to add the event to a calendar on sharepoint.  I was able to do this using the article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-item-sharepoint-calendar-infopath.htm.  But I want the form to also add an item to a custom list that has the employees available time off stored on it.  That way the form can automatically subtract the time entered on the infopath form from what is available on the custom list.  I was able to do this using another article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at  http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-rich-text-item-sharepoint-list-infopath.htm.  I can make both of these functions happen seperately but I need them to happen on the same Infopath form.  I am using Infopath and MOSS 2007.  I have tried to use 2 CAML receive data files and I treid to co
