Modify list edit and display forms using InfoPath

  • Modify list edit and display forms using InfoPath John Hansen

    From SharePoint Designer it is possible to modify the edit and display list forms.

    From the ribbon in ListSettings tab select Design Forms In InfoPath and choose the content type you want to modify forms for. InfoPath will open with a generated form and the form can be modified.

    My question is when you publish the form from InfoPath to a SharePoint List is it posible to export the list and import it to list in SharePoint Foundation or are the forms dependent on InfoPath ?

  • When you design the form with InfoPath, it will appear to be an ASPX page, but the page contains an InfoPathForm webpart.

    Therefore, when you run this on SharePoint foundation you will get a webpart missing error. Since the Infopath webpart is only included in the Enterprise Edition.

  • I have an InfoPath form that starts a workflow (on item created). The business requirement is that after submission form must be read-only (no changes to the initial request can be made). However workflow must change certain properties of the form (e.g. approval time, approval phase etc.).

  • SharePoint workflow by nature is document centric in that you have to have a 'thing'; A object for the workflow to run on. This object can be a document, form or simple list item but this thing has... or automatic creation of an accident list item. Now the process will need to have a set of official forms filled in by various people. This is where I find SharePoint limiting me with it's document centric nature. Typical workflows are about the document, like getting it approved or reviewed or some such. In this case the workflow needs to create new documents, InfoPath forms perhaps. Using task forms

  • I'm working on a prototype SharePoint site at the moment where a forms library has been created with an InfoPath form published to it. A content type has not been used, the form is bound directly to the forms library. This now needs to be put into a redeployable feature and solution package. I tried SPSource but the list definition it produced deploys as a document library. I also tried adapting MS' XmlFormLibrary feature with the same result. Is it possible to create your own Form Library list definition and if so, how?

  • Symptoms: You develop a browser-compatible InfoPath form with managed code for business logic.

  • content type. Each of the derived content types have custom form rendering templates. I am using a custom usercontrol with codebehind added to the .ascx page as a control to redraw the forms differently.

What I... did on the other form. I am wondering if it is because both lists share the same type number (107) or if it might be something else.
