I've had a similar problem; SharePoint/InfoPath doesn’t seem to deal with multiple-selection list boxes very well (unless I'm also missing something). The workaround I used w/o code was to create a new hidden field with the default value set to: eval(eval(MultiSelectField[. != ""], 'concat(., ", ")'), "..") where MultiSelectField is your field Tick ...

Firstly, we need to know whats happening behind the scenes with Admin approved forms while uploading and activating within the Central Admin. Behind the simple click of the Upload button, InfoPath Forms Services creates a feature to deliver the form template (.xsn file). The feature is then wrapped in a Windows SharePoint Services solutions package which ...

The only time I've seen this happen I've had duplicate documents (usually with duplicate Document IDs). This was either caused by Actually having duplicate document IDs, seemingly caused by some defect in SharePoint Search not crawling the documents properly This may not be the cause of your issue, especially if you only have a single result, but have a ...

The "answer" to this turns out to be the Lists.GetListContentTypes Method operation. With it, you can get back the customized forms per Content Type. I've added this operation into v0.4.8 of my jQuery Library for SharePoint Web Services so that I can use it in the SPScriptAudit function. M.

It's been a few projects since I've done Infopath, but are we talking about connections stored externally to the form? These are stored in a .udcx file in a Data Connection Library. If so, why isn't it as simple as just editing the .udcx file? If not, why store embed the connection in the form rather than use .udcx files? Or am I missing something ...

Yes as far I'm aware that's the only way. You need to save the source files out in InfoPath client, edit the manifest file with the correct URLs, then save and publish back into SharePoint. I haven't come across any community tools that make this process easier but you would think there's a good need for them. You may want to search around for that.

I ran into something similar. The problem is that the InfoPath Form Template is under the element's sub-folder. You need to put the .xsn file in the same folder as Feature.xml. I could not find a way to do this using the SharePoint Project template in Visual Studio 2010. So I used a WSPBuilder project instead.

Here are answers: Yes. Take a look at InfoPath 2010 Introduction Part 3: SharePoint Form Web Part No. It is not logical. Maybe you can just hide your list from users (navigation) as simplest woraround. Yes. Take a look at InfoPath 2010 – turn off Ribbon and then you need to add Submit connection and button for submit action.

You can create simple workflow using SharePoint Designer. Your InfoPath form should contain field Manager and you should propagate it to SP when you commit your form. Your workflow can then read this value and use it to sen email to manager. You can use OOTB Modified by (Editor) column to determine person who submitted the form. Your workflow can be ...

After spending much of today on the phone with Microsoft developer support, it turns out that this is a legitimate bug. It was fixed by the August 2011 cumulative update for SharePoint Server. Once I installed that successfully, the above error no longer occurred.

well, state service just use SQL DB to store user session data so Guids are most probably refers to current User session. Lock on a SQL table can appeared after too many requests at the same time. Probably your State Service is a performance bottleneck for a bigger farm? Could you please enable SQL profiling on State DB and check its performance and locks? ...

Each InfoPath form type has a different purpose and different restrictions related to that purpose. There are (in general) three types of forms List Form Web Form Filler Form First I will talk about what the restrictions are for each, and then how to use them List Form: A list form is a SharePoint specific form meant exclusively for use to replace the ...

I had a similar issue with "You are not authorized to perform the current operation" when publishing to a HTTPS destination. The form template was set to Full Trust (Central Admin Administrator Approved). However InfoPath wants to "see" that URL and confirm it's a valid destination. I opened the HTTPS website in IE. By clicking "View Certificate" then ...

A bit late, but since the other answer was not terribly helpful, you can reference other classes and code in a separate strong-named assembly and include a reference to it in your project. The form's assembly may be fairly rigid, but you can always design around it. Build your other functions/classes in a separate VS project, deploy it as a SP solution, and ...

While deploying your feature you need to change the scope of your feature(feature.xml) as web. So when you activate the feature it will be activated for that subsite only. Scope="web" more can be found here: http://weblogs.asp.net/soever/archive/2007/05/03/sharepoint-features-elements-scope-and-other-info.aspx

User form templates that contain code can be published by site collection administrations to form libraries as sandboxed solutions. For more information about sandboxed solutions, see Sandboxed solutions overview (SharePoint Server 2010). Form templates that require full trust or use a data connection that is managed by an administrator must be deployed by ...

There is no single answer here. Getting form design correct is really going to depend on the requirements. In some cases, designing a single list and customizing the form will be the answer for a small process. For larger processes, designing a form that is deployed as a content type in a site collection will work, for other cases, you will need to deploy ...

Open the InfoPath Form in Design view. 1) Go to Tools -> Form Options. 2) Select Category 'Open and Save'. 3) There is a section called 'Open behavior', where you can set Rules. These Rules are fired when the Form is opened. This is similar to Rules specified in "Form Load" option in InfoPath 2010.

I just went through your question again and was able to notice that there are internal web service calls that you are using for the InfoPath Forms. I have listed some possible solutions which could be checked in this situation. Permissions on the Forms Library or lists. Atleast Contribute permission should be given to the user submitting the Forms to these ...

When you customize forms for a list or library, those forms simply replace or customize the current forms, the permissions are not affected. However, creating your own custom form that has nothing to do with a list that is already deployed can be affected in many ways. If the forms is deployed as a content type, then it can be used in any library that ...

This is horrible, but you could construct a "special version" of the InfoPath form that recieves data from the InfoPath Document Library, with a filter to pick the specific form in question, then in the form you can put "fx" or Rules to copy into each field from this Receive data source, using a filter on each to pull the exact InfoPath Document Library. ...

On the page where you want the InfoPath form to display, create two web parts. The first is a standard list web part that exposes the library where you have your Infopath forms stored. The second is a form web part to expose an InfoPath form. In the edit web part dialog, set the InfoPath web part to point to the same library (where you have your forms). ...

The question is rather loose in defining context as well as in used terminlogy. But generally, if the the fields are added to an Infopath form template through Infopath Designer 2010, then the new form tempalte was created and only template with which previous forms were created can be used for editing/updating previously filled Infopath forms.

I cannot give you advise on your specific issue, however, I was in your situation that an existing form should be updated. Until now I was able to aviod what you are trying to do. I prefer to update the form and publish it to another location. After that the old library will be set to read-only and the new form will be used. Don't know if that is helpful ...

Open Central Administration and go to Operations/ Timer Job Definitions Find your form template job and delete it. Then click Manage form templates on Application Management tab. Refresh this page. Probably it shows your form template that it is ready. I know this is not a real solution, but it saves time ;)
