InfoPath 2010 - Attachment and embedded picture control (not linked) missing

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I'm relatively new to list form designing, but I've got most of want I want completed.

The only trouble I'm having is adding additional attachment controls or pictures.

The only control on the menu for a picture is for a linked (URL) picture.  The attachment control is no where to be found.

What am I missing?

Thanks,

Steve

Infopath 2010 How to activate the people picker control

  
I am creating a form where i am populating a people picker with the logged on user. This is fine but how can i then activate the control to get it to lookup the display name and account type.   I am using a rule to set the AccountID field to be the Username function available in rules. Then on the form you have to click on the tick icon to finish the lookup. This is the bit i want to automate.   I also have c# code running in the background so am happy using .NET code to do this.   Thanks   Paul

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.

InfoPath 2010, People Picker Control - problem with sharepoint group targeting

  

Hello!

I have developed InfoPath 2010 web form with People Picker Control. I want to set sharepoint group which would be used in People Picker Control to search people. Ok, I set sharpoint site url and aftet that - select sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group' I need. Everything works fine - I can select only people inside sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'.

Now I deploy my solutions (wsp package) on different site collection and sharepoint server installations. In this case People Picker Control can't find right sharepoint group 'Test InfoPath group'. Sometimes People Picker Control select another group, not that I have select in InfoPath Designer and sometimes People Picker Control select all users.

What's wrong with it and can I configure People Picker Control to select sharepoint group?

SharePoint 2010 External Content Type and InfoPath 2010 - Numeric data type fields missing in InfoPa

  

Connected SQL data table to SP 2010 ECT from SQL table.  The SQL table has several fields that have a type of "numeric(3,0)".  The SP 2010 list shows all fields form SQL.  When we open up InfoPath Designer and reference the SP List data (from SQL) all of our numer fields are missing from the available fields list.

I amd going to try another data type but that hardly feels like a solution.  If anyone has any ideas please let me know!


Sharepoint 2010 AD Sync - missing picture from AD to pictureURL

  

Hi all:

I have followed Jie Lie (Technical sharepoint Product Manger) steps in entirety (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2009/11/19/user-profile-sync-setup-in-sharepoint-server-2010-beta.aspx), my sync with AD is working fine except it is not pulling the pictures in the AD.

Here is my issue, we have photos of all employees stored as domain.xyz.jpg in the custom attribute (emp_pics_2001) with type string, but the picture url type is url (is this the culprit type change), I am using the custom attribute to map the field in the Sharepoint 2010 miis client.

I am using the below url to do the set up: http://goodbadtechnology.blogspot.com/2010/05/setting-up-pictureurl-user-profile.html

i did check the profile db picture url field is NULL, i have all the other values for person except the picture.., I have already wasted more than 2 days in figuring this out

If i just get domain.xyz.jpg pulled to sharepoint, then i can prefix a url in front of it using powershell
I am using a full trusted service account with full permissions to the domain

please help me out..

thank you

Problem opening an attachment from Infopath 2007 form in SharePoint 2010

  
I have an InfoPath 2007 form that is opened as a web based form in SharePoint 2010 that has an attachment control.  In Windows XP with IE 7 when you double click the attachment there is a warning message presented and after you click OK you get a prompt that asks if you want to open or save the file or cancel.  In Windows 7 with IE 8 when you double click the attachment there is a warning message presented and after you click OK you get a prompt that asks if you want to save the file or cancel, no open option.  I already set the SharePoint browser permission to permissive for the site and it doesn't help.  How can I get this to work in Windows 7 and IE 8?

Bind Infopath 2010 Form Control to another List Field

  

Hi, I am having Sharepoint 2010 RTM Enterprise Trial on Windows Server 2008 SP2.

I have Two Lists (List1 and List2) and List2 has a lookup field for List1 ID.

I want to bind some of the controls on infopath form of List1 to List2 fields such that when the user enters the values, these values would be saved in List2 and when the user want to edit the data of List1, the values can be retrieved from List2 on Form Load.

can it be done ?

can it be possible without having a field in List1 (direct binding to List2 field) ?

thanks.

Custom list -- control issue with column type "Choice" and Infopath 2010

  
I finally got our project lead to abandon external SQL lists, so now I've created custom lists in SP 2010. I have some columns that are of "Choice" type/"Display as radio buttons" (customer requirement). When I start Infopath 2010 locally and create the data connections to the list(s), those choice fields display in I/P as dropdowns. If I change the control with a right-click to "Option Button", I only get one -- I need 2 (yes, no) or, in a few upcoming cases 3 or 4. BTW, same with changing the control to a check box -- only get 1. FWIW, I get the same results if I start Infopath directly from the list in SP Designer 2010. Any ideas?

Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

  
If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

VWDE 2010 Won't Install Ajax Control Toolkit on XP Pro

  

To my displeasure I cannot find VWD2005 which at one time would generate a complete web.config for Ajax so I downloaded and installed VWDE 2010 to a clean install of XP Pro.

I've created a new tab on the toolbar for the controls but after I select the Ajax dll to add the controls to the toolbar it grinds away and then goes poof and closes down the task leaving VWD look as if I had never even created the tab in the toolbar. 

 

Any advice here?


Attachment upload error on browser based InfoPath form

  

Hello,

I am having an interesting problem with browser based InfoPath forms in SharePoint 2007.  For some reason the file attachment control is not working any more.  It was working fine in July, but now it will not allow file attachments over a few kb.  I tried a 34KB file and I get the error below, a 2KB file works fine.

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
