Set Contact selector rules in InfoPath when using DIP from SharePoint


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.

Using Infopath rules and filters off an XML data source


Hi Everyone:

Using InfoPath browser based form, I have an drop down menu connected to another list using an XML data source (I am doing this so I can use the view to control the data in the drop down menu).

When the user selects a value from a drop down, I also want other fields in the form to populate with the corresponding data for that item from the other list. I can't get the filters to work and I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I originally had just a regular secondary source for the list and the filters worked just fine but I need to use the XML source so all items will show up in the drop down, not just part of the list. So the XML data source shows odd field names like ows_Project_x0020_Number in the zrow of the XML source. I set up all the filters but when I select an item from my drop down the other fields are only showin the first items from the list and not filtering to my selection.

Hope you can help.




Testing InfoPath Forms with Rules using GetCommonMemberships Data Connection


I have my first InfoPath form coming up for testing. This uses a GetCommonMemberships data connection as a condition for various rules (for example, form load rules that switch views when the user is a member of a Packaging AD group). I’m not a member of any of the AD groups being used for these conditions and neither are the company’s QAs.

Because I’m not a member of any of the groups, I tend to set my rule up in reverse to check it. For example, if I have a rule where the DisplayName is equal to “domain\Packaging” (of which I am not a member), the control is not disabled for me. This assumes that the opposite is also true if I change the rule to is not equal to “domain\Packaging”. In other words, the control should not be disabled for members of that group but it should be for me.

How do you guys allow your QAs to impersonate different team members to properly test this without compromising the integrity of the form?

Sharepoint 2010 : Infopath rules and filters vs SharePoint workflows



I need to perform a lookup of a user creating a list item and fill out some of his properties automatically.  (such as company, departement, etc.)

I can imagine there are two ways to go ahead with this.   You can create Infopath filters or/and rules to lookup information.   I don't know whether it is possible to lookup information from Active Directory with this as well?   I do know it's possible to lookup information from another list.   I could of course use BCS to create a list within SharePoint and then use that.   Somehow that doesn't feel like the proper solution.

I can also use workflows that would start automatically and go ahead an retrieve user information in such a way.  I don't know whether this is the best option either.

Any advice / feedback would be much appreciated.

Best regards, David

Submit InfoPath Form Attachments one after another. Avoiding Sharepoint 50mb size limit


As the title says. How would I make an infopath form submit an attachment, then after being submitted; Submit the 2nd attachment, and so on.

The problem I'm running into is the 50mb file attachment limit in SharePoint. It is not an option to change this Max amount. This way the 4 attachments which are all around 15 mb, won't total 60mb at one time and go over the file size limit.

C++ Rules: Power Your App with the Programming Model and Compiler Optimizations of Visual C++


Many programmers think that C++ gets good performance because it generates native code, but even if your code is completely managed you'll still get superior performance. In Visual Studio 2005, the C++ syntax itself has been greatly improved to make it faster to write. In addition, a flexible language framework is provided for interacting with the common language runtime (CLR) to write high-performance programs. Read about it here.

InfoPath: Turn User Input into XML with Custom Forms Using Office InfoPath 2003


Office InfoPath 2003 is a new Microsoft Office product that lets you design your own data collection forms that, when submitted, turn the user-entered data into XML for any XML-supporting process to use. With an InfoPath solution in place, you can convert all those commonly used paper forms into Microsoft Office-based forms and end the cycle of handwriting and reentering data into your systems. Today organizations are beginning to realize the value of the mountains of data they collect every day, how hard it is to access it, and are striving to mine it effectively. InfoPath will aid in the design of effective data collection systems. Here the author shows you how to get started.

Web Services: Extend the ASP.NET WebMethod Framework with Business Rules Validation


In an earlier article the authors showed how to build a custom WebMethods extension that provides XML Schema validation, a function that is lacking in ASP.NET. In the process they established a foundation for enforcing business rules during the deserialization of XML data. The technique, which is described in this article, uses declarative XPath assertions to test business rule compliance.In building this business rules validation engine, the authors integrate the validation descriptions into the WSDL file that is automatically generated by the WebMethod infrastructure. Finally, they demonstrate how to extend wsdl.exe, the tool that generates WebMethod proxy/server code from WSDL files, to make use of their extensions.
