InfoPath - How to show multiline text box in print view with entire text i.e. text exceeds more than

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
I have created an Infopath form with a multiline text box, at times, there is more information entered into the text box, cause a user to scroll. 
That feature is ok but when a user prints the form, only the information displayed on the screen is printed, and not the entire contents of the text box.  How can I print the entire contents of the text box?
also i dont want to create an another view as we have around 100 from and each can be change time to time causing print view need to be changed.

Print Form View and expanding text fields?

The form i'm editing has a small text field with a scroll bar that users enter quite a bit of data.  I'm wondering how to create a print view for the form that will expand that field to match the size of the content text. Does that make sense?

Can't paste text into an Infopath form and see it with print preview

I have a user who says that they can't view any of their text that they cut and paste into the fields of a form when they choose Print Preview, in the forms library.  They're using IE8 to access the SharePoint site. When I access the same form in the same library from any browser from my computer, I can view pasted text in any field when I click Print Preview. Anyone see this before and can help me?? Thanks!    

InfoPath 2010 Web forms in IE and Firefox regarding the Multiline text box


Could someone please confirm if this is a bug.

I created an InfoPath form in 2010. As an Infopath form, the multiline textbox grows, as a user enters text, automatically as expected.

The very same form as a web form:

In IE 7 and IE 8 the box expands at every 20 or so chharacters instead of at the end of a line.

In Firefox (3.xxx) the box does not expand unless you press enter at the end of every line.

In IE 7 and IE 8 if you open a form that was created with FireFox, the boxes end up expanding as if it had been entered in IE instead of FireFox. FireFox seems to be the most compatable but how do I explain to user that they can use IE for everything but forms?

The question is this: Is it a bug because I would think the box should be dynamic as the user eneters data and should not require the user to press enter. When will this be fixed. It is holding us up as to ever being able to use InfoPath Web based forms which is a requirement because InfoPath based forms are not supported on any OS other than Windows. Web Based forms should operate and be available regardless of the browser type. Please advise.

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.

Use value binded to gridview to show text corresponding to the value

 Hi, I am developing a website which populates a gridview from an arraylist through binding it to the gridview. This data can come from the database or just be entered by the user. However, I have codes to represent the text values chosen by the user to reduce the memory requirements of the database. Is there a way bind a value to the database and then display the corresponding text. The text will be already on the webpage in the form of a dropdownlist. Any help would be really appreciated! I can't seem to find anything on this on the internet. Regards,       Seamus

Why is the text truncated in the grid view?

Hello,If you build a DD site using a database that has a varchar() field of length more than about 20, then when you look at the grid view for the table, you only see the first 20 or so characters in the field.Can I change this to show more? Even better, can I modify th grid to show this one field on the next line so it can take up the whole line?Thanks

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

Infopath browser form - odd behaviour on auto expanding multi line text boxes




I have a browser form with a multi line text box. The height is set to be AUTO. Within the client all is fine. When opened as an administrator approved form the text box automatically adds a new line for every 20 characters you type.


So if you type 40 characters without pressing enter you get 2 blank lines appear under you text that you CANNOT remove.


I have tested this on a new form with various multi line text boxes. The width setting is unimportant, the spell check setting is unimportant.


If i fix the height then the issue goes away but this is not any good.


I cannot use rich text boxes as i have around 40 text boxes on the form and if they are rich text they take around 10 minutes to load in the browser (this is another issue i have)


Thanks in advance
