Infopath: Contact selector field

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

I am designing an infopath which is connected to an Access DB.

I need to have a "Contact selector" field in my Infopath, is this still possible without having a sharepoint server to connect to?

If yes, how can this be achieved?

Contact Selector Failed in MOSS Workflow Modification Infopath Form

  
Hi,   In my proof of concept Moss 2007 WF, I tested an Infopath modification form successfully.  Then the contact selector ActiveX control was added but it failed to open using the modification link of the workflow page.  In a different form for the WF initiation, I similarly created two CS controls and it worked there.  A snippet of the MOSS error is below   Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.ContactPicker.RenderClientViewDataLeafContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ControlViewData controlViewData, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.LeafControl.RenderClientViewDataContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.BaseControl.RenderClientViewData(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.ContainerControl.RenderClientViewDataContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.BaseControl.RenderClientViewData(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.CollectionControl.RenderClientViewDataContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext rend

InfoPath / ActiveX error when using person selector field in Word template off SharePoint document l

  
I have created an out-of-the-box document library on a SharePoint 2010 site.  I left Microsoft Word Document selected as the Document Template.  I then added a person or group column and a multiple lines of text column to the document library. I then went into Library Settings --> Advanced Settings and clicked on Edit Template, opening the template in Word.  I created my template and added the two new columns to the document.  I did this using the Quick Parts --> Document Property --> [column name] feature under the Insert tab in Word.  I then saved the template back to SharePoint. Upon opening the template or creating a new document from the template, I get the following dialog box: --------------------------- Microsoft Office InfoPath --------------------------- One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page might not display correctly. --------------------------- OK   --------------------------- I've searched around (I believe fairly extensively) and have not run into anyone else with the same issue.  Some have mentioned a similar error when creating a custom document information panel in InfoPath, and suggested lowered ActiveX security setti

Set Contact selector rules in InfoPath when using DIP from SharePoint

  
Hi,

I created a custom content type of type document in WSS 3.0. I created column called "person" of type "People or Group ". So when I create a new document in SharePoint, there is a contact selector (people picker) in document information panel . But I would like to use InfoPath to edit the contact selector in this way: When a person is picked in the contact selector, another field (also custom column from my content type) will be changed according to the person I picked. I hope it is clear :-)

But in InfoPath when I right click the contact selector, there is no Rules... option, even no Data validation option etc.

What can I do?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I managed to create contect field in IP form, then separate it into 3 text fields, which are then linked to sharepoint library fields.

It`s fine, but resulted SharePoint list recieves contacts as text and stores them also like text fields (ad account or name strings).

But i want to see name`s field type of User or Group.

Can that be done ?

Contact Selector - Form tab index is lost after selector resolves names on blur

  

I'm working with an InfoPath2007 form developed to be filled-out through the browser on a SharePoint 2007 site, and I'm testing using Internet Explorer 7.  It's a straight-forward form, with a number of text fields and two Contact Selector controls.

The issue I'm encountering is with the Contact Selector control, where if the actor only enters a partial name into the text-field and then TABs away from the control the form will perform its auto-postback to look-up and resolve the partial name (showing the name resolution dialog is necessary), and afterward the actor's cursor is focused on the next field in the form.  The actor can type text into the focused field, but any subsequent pressing of the TAB key returns the actor's focus to the browser's ADDRESS bar, which is incorrect as it should proceed to the next field in the form.  I understand that the Contact Selector needs to perform its postback to perform the name resolution (so that there is no way through the InfoPath form designer to disable postbacks for the control), but why does the browser not know how to continue the TAB order of the fields on the form even when a field has focus?

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.

Automatically populating Contact Selector not working in Form Services

  
Hi,I'm currently working on a form where i wan't to automatically populate a contact selector control with a users manager. I've got the managers userid, called the ResolvePrincipal webservice provided by sharpoint, and set all the values in the contact selector with the correct values. When previewing it works perfectly however when i move the form to Form Services it won't work.I've tried setting it via rules: i.e. on the change of a textbox write the manager values to the contact selector.I've tried setting the default values of the contact selector to fields where i write the manager values.I've tried setting it through code i.e. SelectSingleNode() and SetValue() for each of the fields in the contact selector.All of which work fine in preview mode but will not work in Form Services, UNLESS the contact selector already has a user in it. So if the contact selector is blank it won't work, however as soon as i manually select a user then try using any of the previously mentioned methods of setting the control it works. While using code i get a nullreferenceexception which leads me to think that possibly when theres no user in the control the xml nodes representing the AccountId, DisplayName, AccountType don't exit???? TO throw another spanner in the works, on the very odd occasion it will work in Form Services as expected, after celebrating and trying again it returns

Problem Resolving More Than One Contact Selector

  
On a Forms Services form I have 3 contact selectors.  The form connects to SharePoint and creates an item in SharePoint based on code behind. The problem is that only one of the contact selectors resolves automatically.  If the user clicks into the contact selector field manually and tabs off the field then it will resolve but I need to automatically resolve all contact selectors before the user clicks a button on the form to add the items to SharePoint list. If the user does not click into the contact selector field then the username in the field does not become underlined (i.e. resolved) as a valid username. When debugging I can see that the XML behind the form is as follows: <my:AssignedToPersons> <my:Person> <my:DisplayName>Bloggs, John</my:DisplayName> <my:AccountId>DOMAIN\jbloggs</my:AccountId> <my:AccountType>User</my:AccountType> </my:Person> </my:AssignedToPersons> <my:ManagerPersons> <my:Person> <my:DisplayName>Bloggs, Bill</my:DisplayName> <my:AccountId></my:AccountId> <my:AccountType></my:AccountType> </my:Person> </my:ManagerPersons> <my:ManagerPersons> <my:Person> <my:DisplayName>Bloggs, Jim</my:DisplayName> <my:AccountId></my:AccountId> <my:AccountType></my:AccountType> </my:Person&

How to insert a name field on an InfoPath path that allows you to insert names from the AD directory

  
How can I set up a field on an Infopath form so that when I click on a "Check Names" button, (exactly the same way it works on a SharePoint point Name field), the name is checked against the AD directory? I am not trying to control user access to sections of the form - I am simply adding names to the form that is collecting data on a task - such as Delivery Lead, Designer, etc.

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
