InfoPath will be supported till 2023 as Microsoft says. Also they are looking forward for a more responsive design supported tool. Which may come with SharePoint 2016. So feel free to use it. They will not easily drop it all the way given there are many services that use .xsn file format such as Biztalk.

=IF( OR(INT(A)+INT(B)+INT(C) = 3, INT(A)+INT(B)+INT(C) = 0), "Accepted", "Not Accepted" ) This should work. FYI: The formula's used by calculated columns are Excel formula's and you can open a blank excel sheet to play with them :)

Using Infopath form it's not possible to make it 100% responsive. All I was able to find was this 2007 article. Also Microsoft is retiring InfoPath and 2013 is the last version of its kind. You should change your approach from InfoPath to a ListForm, and use that along with JSLinks etc. to make it fully responsive.

This can be done using Rules in Infopath. There is 3 different types of rule that you can use, Validation, Formatting and Action. They are accessible from the top ribbon tab "Home" and are found almost in the right corner. Add a formatting rule on the field you wanna hide and set the condition to be something like Yes/No Field is equal to True / False ...

Fired up Wireshark and looked at the XML coming back from SharePoint and saw how to do this. Basically you just set the Field's value to a string with each choice separated by ;# for example if Choices 1 and 3 were selected: <Field Type="Choice" BaseType="Text" Name="Process">;#Choice 1;#Choice 3;#</Field>

InfoPath may be discontinued by Microsoft but in the official statement, they make it very clear that they will keep supporting InfoPath for many years to come. So it's up to you to decide whether to use it or not. How long will InfoPath be supported? The InfoPath 2013 client will be supported through April 2023. InfoPath Forms Services for ...

Activated "Team Collaboration Lists Feature" and it works now.

It depends on how you published it. Did you publish it as a content type? In that case you can see it when you add a new item to a list or library that includes the content type.

I've had this requirement before, and each time I stray away from InfoPath and tell my users the only reasonable way is to use customized SharePoint list forms, edit/display/new. But in InfoPath, you would have to write code-behind in the InfoPath form, making it administrative approved. In the code, you would, upon submission of a document attachment, use ...

Current view dropdown from ribbon can be hidden through current view created in InfoPath.

Provided Columns A,B,C have either a 1 or 2 value; =IF( INT(A)+INT(B)+INT(C) = 3 , "Accepted" , "Not Accepted" ) checks if ALL 3 columns have a value of 1 =IF( MIN( INT(A) , INT(B) , INT(C) ) = 0 , "One of the columns is 0" ,"None of the colums are 0" ) Checks if either one of ABC is 0 =IF( MAX( INT(A) , INT(B) , INT(C) ) = 2 , "One of the columns ...

Then get the field collection and get the particular field by name and if it's the required one: update it. Kindly find the code sample below class Program { static string Path = ...

Hi you need to do the following: 1) Create a SharePoint Custom List 2) Click the ribbon button Customize on Infopath (sorry for the picture my infopath is in Spanish, and remember to use IE) 3) On infopath you can add all the fields that you need, just try to use CamelCase for the field names 4) To add a button click on home ribbon Button or Picture ...

You will need to promote those columns by re-publishing the form. As you step through the wizard for publishing your infopath form a dialog appears where you can choose which columns you want to appear as promoted columns on the SharePoint list. You can see the steps here in this blog post: ...


2

Well there are two types of infopath data. First type is non-promoted infopath fields. These are fields in your form that are NOT promoted to SharePoint. The data for these fields live ONLY in the XML file. The second type are promoted infopath fields. These are fields that are in the form that you HAVE decided to promote to SharePoint as columns. ...

Try string-length(field) - string-length(translate(field, " ", "")) < 10 which is inspired from KB Article Formula to count the number of occurrences of a single character in one cell If you are concerned about searching for a single character in a single cell, the formula is simplified to: =LEN()-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(,"a","")) Let me know if you ...

In my case, the copy of the core.css that I wanted to keep actually included a querystring (core.css?somerandomlookinglettersandnumbers) so I simply disabled the offending core.css stylesheet as follows: <script type="text/javascript"> for (i = 0; i < document.styleSheets.length; i++) { var currSheet = document.styleSheets[i]; ...

Use a CEWP at the top of your page. Store the Image in an image library so SharePoint can get it. Then, use HTML in the CEWP to make your header with the image. Should work just fine.

If i have understood correctly : 1.Add all images to images doc lib . 2.Create a new list , add a column with "picture" type . while creating new item provide the url of picture from images library . OR directly create a picture library and add items . UPDATE : When you click new item in list , it either can open in newform.aspx or editform.aspx . ...

As it is a repeating table, only a single row will appear by default. You will need to add the number rows as per your requirement at run time.

I agree with PirateEric. A forms library will only be required if the features of a list form are not sufficient. If you can make do with a list form, you can save all the extra work required to promote fields to library columns and all list columns are available to Excel by default. Other advantages of a list compared to a library: you can configure ...

We had a similar situation and we solve it by adding new command to the ribbon. Basically, the user selects the item and press a choise named: New record. The button copies the current item's data to a new one and opens the new item. We followed code in https://patrickboom.wordpress.com/tag/ecma-script/ Another solution is to add a field named "this is a ...

This is just how SharePoint and InfoPath work together. It is also not different from the behaviour of the list form that comes out of the box with a SharePoint list. When a form is opened, it is tied to the record that it displays. The form can only change that item. To release the item, the form needs to be closed. Maybe you need to step back from the ...

Initially create 2 SharePoint groups one with Contribute permissions and another with read. Put all the users to group with Contribute permissions. Once a user fill the form, remove the user from that group and add to the group with Read permissions. Assign required users individually Contribute permissions. When submitted, remove permissions and apply Read ...

I've done something similar with Nintex, allowing for the form to receive attachments, then using workflow tools, extract the base 64 encoded attachment and load it into a document library with a web service operation, then update the form xml to remove the attachment. Perhaps though with a form rule, once the field is assigned that determines the name, you ...

This is possible with rules. Please see the image below. Add an action to switch the view.

I've found a solution (via a page on Delphi-ts.com which I had to get from the wayback machine), but it's not ideal (from my novice standpoint), as it requires addition of C# code to the form which 1) means I've had to recreate the form in a forms library, not an item list and 2) the form has to be uploaded via sharepoint central admin, not published direct ...
