Try editing the SharePoint list settings in the browser. Open the list, go to List Settings, click the field name and select "No" for "Allow multiple selections". Edit after clarification that this is not a list form: The described behavior of the control leads me to believe that the form has initially been created with InfoPath 2007 and the people picker ...

Per that same article, Microsoft has indicated they will support InfoPath 2013 until 2023 and that they are working to provide migration guidance from InfoPath into whatever successor technology or technologies based on Office and/or SharePoint may take its place. If you have a 3-5 year time horizon, I wouldn't rule out InfoPath completely. It would seem ...

The reason you're seeing this is that your production farm uses Claims AuthN whereas your dev enviroment the classic mode. You should probably make your code handle both scenarios. Here are some details about the claims encoding: http://www.wictorwilen.se/Post/How-Claims-encoding-works-in-SharePoint-2010.aspx

You should set-up the Item Level Permission for the list or library so only users who created the item can view/edit etc. check out this article that explains how to achieve this in SP2010 Item Level Permission 2010

I have a solution (workaround). Only thing you need to compromise on is to replace your option button with check box (but with same functionality as option button). I hope that you have some basic skills with InfoPath rules since my solution is all rules and it is not so simple (but you asked for no code). Step 1: Add two new columns to source list: ...

I had the same problem and found out a way to solve it. I saved the form as source files, opened all the files in a text editor (in my case on Visual Studio) and replaced all URLs, used for publishing (actually in 2 files: manifest.xsf and view1.xsl). After publishing it worked fine. Good luck. Regards, Pilan

While researching this myself, I found a solution that might be a bit better than a substring. You might want to try the following: SPClaimProviderManager manager = SPClaimProviderManager.Local; if (manager != null) { if (SPClaimProviderManager.IsEncodedClaim(encodedString)) username = manager.DecodeClaim(encodedString).Value; else ...

Concerning the answer with reference to S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton How to submit the rows of a repeating table in InfoPath to a SharePoint list I managed to succeed in running the code from that article in Infopath 2010 (Sharepoint Online/Office 365) only after I changed CAML template XML file content from given in article: <?xml version="1.0" ...

Are you using SharePoint? SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise edition? If yes, your users do not need to have InfoPath installed on their machine. All is required is to enable InfoPath Form Services in the Central Administration Web site and in the document library settings specify open forms in browser.

Probably one should use references from Microsoft itself on MS products. So, Microsoft source tells: "Workflow form changed from InfoPath form to aspx form For a workflow based on SharePoint Designer 2013 (WF4) and Windows Azure Workflow, SharePoint creates aspx forms instead of InfoPath forms that were created by SharePoint Designer 2010 (WF3.5) ...

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 ...

My guess is that the error is thrown by a SharePoint field that's is a lookup and it expects an internal ID of list item, not its actual value (visible in the dropdown list). Setting up dynamic drop downs in the out of box SharePoint forms If you get an error that says Only Positive Integers Allowed, you're trying to save a string into a column ...

The second review, does it take place within the form or is it a task in a task list? If it is within the form, then wait for a field to be "rejected". If you are doing it as a repeating field so that multiple people can enter, then you can concatenate that field into a hidden field within the form and promote this concatenated field out to your form ...

There are a couple reasons it may not be displaying: You're not running the Enterprise edition of SharePoint. This feature requires Forms Services, which are only available in EE. You're looking at a list type that does not support this feature. Basically, any list type that uses a non-standard display for an item, like Calendars, will not have this option ...

I am using Infopath with code-behind in Sharepoint Online (Office 365) since June 2012 (now is 2013, since January).

If you are using a browser-based form you can only edit the form code using C# .NET or VB .NET. In InfoPath 2010, there should be a "Developer" tab where you can edit the code (using the "Code Editor" button). If you have to use Javascript, you could also try to call the script indirectly, using the method here: ...

The following products are currently available: Nintex Forms Nintex Forms for Office 365 P.S. Disclosure, i do not work at Nintex company

I don't believe these make it into the file when using xsd.exe because they are processing instructions, not actually part of the XML data structure. If you need these then update the file as XML and use XPath queries such as: var ipsNode = xml.SelectSingleNode( "//processing-instruction('mso-infoPathSolution')", namespaceManager); ipsNode.InnerText ...

You would want to promote the details to columns within your library so that the data can easily be used, then you can put these columns of information within the email to your "approver". The user would then be given a link to a view of the form that will allow them to approve or deny the request. Another thing you can do is look on codeplex, there is a ...

I would expect it to work, but you have some interesting variables there so it would be a good idea to plan for some validation before you commit to anything. Normally there is some backwards compatibility with office apps. InfoPath is a little different, but the underlying XML schema should be compatible.

You are probably facing the issue described in KB article 2554288 Columns published from InfoPath fields are recreated when the same InfoPath form template is re-published to more than one document libraries in a SharePoint site. The issue is that InfoPath isn't very flexible when it comes to matching up columns in SharePoint with what it's expecting in the ...

Arrays/Collections in C# are zero based so item Items[list.Items.Count] does not exist the last item in this collection is Items[list.Items.Count-1]. Please note: I am not sure this solves your problem completely as I never tried to retrieve items from InfoPath via C#.
