Client based InfoPath form User Roles: Order of Evaluation?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 
Again, client based (and no, this is a separate question from my other one, figured I'd ask them as separate threads).

To keep the example simple, let's assume I have 3 roles:  Administrator; Supervisor; Everyone.

Administrator is determined by your membership in a domain group, and this works great.  It's at the top of the list, so (according to MS), if it is evaluated that I'm in this role, execution stops, and that's my role.

Supervisor is determined if your name is in the 'Supervisor' field on the form (this works as well, even though my other post indicates it doesn't, but it doesn't in the context I'm using it there, so we'll move on and assume it works here).

Everyone else.

Now, if you are in the domain that evaluates to Administrator, that works great, until someone puts your name in the Supervisor field, then you evaluate to Supervisor.  This is wrong.  According to MS, it should still be evaluating Administrator first, and that is my role.  One of two things is happening:

1. MS is wrong, and it evaluates everything (I don't think this is the case, as I've tried changing the order of evaluation, and it still comes up Supervisor if my name is in that field, even though I'd normally come up as Administrator, based on my domain membership).

2. It evaluates i

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 form - browser error client error

  

I am facing a problem with browser enabled infopath form. I have developed this in infopath 2007. I have few fields in a repeating table. It contains Number of units, qty , subtotal and total. Total is sum of all sub totals and Sub total is  multiplication of units and qty. I am able to insert new items in preview and getting subtotal and total. I have published it in sharepiont as browser enabled form as a content type. When I opened the form in browser and insert new item in repeating table then I am not getting my subtotal and total updated. I am getting those for only first row. other rows are not working. This is working with infopath client.  Please help me out..

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

UseExplicit property in infopath with form based context

  
Hi everyone, I have a problem with my infopath form. The context, user of the site mustn't have acces to lists that provision infopath form field. Administrator should have acces to these lists. When i test the useExplicit property of udc file for impersonate the connection to the list i have no problem ( all my account are local account) But when i try to integrate user from FBA, infopath form services don't take care of the UseExplicit property and try connect to the list with the credential of the connected user ( who don't have access to the list since only the user that i use to impersonate the connection have read acces). Here is my UseExplicit property :  <udc:Authentication>    <udc:UseExplicit CredentialType="NTLM">      <udc:UserId>dev\svc-reader</udc:UserId>      <udc:Password>password</udc:Password>    </udc:UseExplicit>  </udc:Authentication>    09/06/2010 15:06:50.46                w3wp.exe (0x09BC)                                      0x1A08 SharePoint Foundation                General

Form opening in infopath client despite Content Type settings "Display as a Web Page"

  
Hi all,   I have a strange behavior with my forms. The infopath template is defined as Content Type for my Form library, in the advanced settings I have checked "Display as a Web page" for the "Opening browser-enabled documents" setting. Despite that when the client is availble on the computer which is browsing the Form Library, I'm asked to "Open", "Save" or "Cancel" instead of opening the form in the browser.   Any idea why this is happening ?

Infopath view based on roles

  

hi, me again

i have created a form with 3 views.

what i'm trying to do is seperate the form in 3, for the user, approver and submitter to database.

first the user open the form to fill it in. then the approver opens the form to approve it, and at last the "submitter to database" open the form to send the records to the database.

for each view i created a role. when the user open the form it opens the form with the view for the user, and when the approver open the form it opens the form with the view for the approver.

but when the "submitter to the database" open the form it opens with the view of the approver.

how can i fix this so when the form is open by the "submitter to database" it opens with the view for the "submitter to database"?


Show/Hide fields on InfoPath based on context User Group Membership

  
I am reading a book on SharePoint 2010 Development by Wrox and although it is a good book, the InfoPath section is limited. I am Googling to see if I can find anywhere where i can perhaps have this type of functionality to hide and show a specific field based on their Group Membership?

i'm using wss 3.0 and infopath 2007.

i have a form that need to be approved by a specific approver.

first when the user submit the form it send an email to the specific approver and the form is also submitted to a library.

in my library i have the following fields:

form name, created by and aprrover's name.

now i need the workflow to look up for the name of the approver and send an "assigned a to-do item" to the specific approver of the form

can someone help me with this?


infopath form view restriction for sharepoint user/groups

  

Hi,

I would like to restrict sharepiont groups on infopath form views . I mean when they login to sharepoint site and open the form they should see their view in the form.  we have sharepoint foundation 2010. 

I have gone through following link

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointinfopath/thread/25951740-8865-4421-8ef1-c850d783e674

I think this service required sharepoint server 2010. Is there any link where I can work out this on sharepoint foundation.

any help appreciated.

 

Thanks

Convert Web Based InfoPath Form via Form Services to a PDF

  

Hello,

 

Does anyone have a good idea on how to convert a web based InfoPath form into a PDF?

 

I've been looking into the MOSS Document Conversions, which could prove quite interesting. OOB, It allows to convert from InfoPath Form to Web Page (Web Publishing Page). Does a converter like "InfoPath Form to PDF" exist? Or perhaps just a "InfoPath to plain PDF" exist?

 

I've also been looking into the http://www.websupergoo.com/abcpdf-1.htm - ABCPDF component. It's quite clever, as it's able to take a URL as a parameter and return the web page as a searchable PDF (not just an bitmap image). However it fails converting any pages coming out of SharePoint / Form Services (even though it actually supports JavaScript).

 

Hit me back on any suggestions and ideas you have on this subject.

 

Kind regards.
