So you can input this checkbox in a section so add formating rule to section . So I hope this is usefull.

The InfoPath formatting rules don't allow you to hide checkboxes. Typically you'd create a rule on the check box to check if the corresponding rich text field is empty and set the formatting to Hide this control. You could try to export the source files and manipulate the XSLT and see if that gets you the results you want. I haven't had much success editing ...

Dave, the only way i can think of is adding jQuery script on your new form that checks the values, since this is a custom logic depending on the field value.

I found a way to accomplish this to the satisfaction of my customer. The response above from PirateEric is quite valid and preferred in most occasions but I thought it worthy to share this somewhat lengthy method. Perhaps somebody may choose to elaborate or improve on this solution. First, create a webpage from master. Run SharePoint Designer. Select ...

I have a suggestion but this is a few dirty:) You must add a number field foreach text fields. so you must add role into text1 when this field change (select text1 in home menu click add role then click this field change and set value) in the set value field insert this text1 number field and for value type this string-length(text1) and so for other text ...

You will want to create the column in the content type first. I've had mixed results with letting InfoPath create and manage the columns on promotion, in particular with updating after the fact and getting duplicate columns. Once you have it in your content type it should become available to your InfoPath form and when you publish it you will be able to ...

I found that InfoPath forms can be edited in-browser to allow webparts to be added to the iframe that the form is loaded onto. This then allowed me to insert a CEWP after the form, after which I used jQuery to dynamically convert each span to a link back to the original list. Unfortunately, I found nothing on how to achieve this with OOTB SharePoint.

I have never had success exporting the files and importing or adjusting the CSS so this is what I do. I make all the fields not required, eliminating the red dashed border and put an asterisk by the required fields. Then I create rules to disable a custom save/submit button until all the required fields are not blank.

Infopath services use State Services( for session management), i don't know if you can get the information from state services or not? Couple of ways you can deploy the solution without affecting the user. as Jesus mentioned deploy the solution after hours and ask for downtime and also recycle will not affect the filling the form rather if user submitting ...

I had a similar problem and found it was due to the request management service routing from my web application host header to the server name. I found the following line in the log file: Request Management Mapping URI from ...

Another option is to use an event receiver subscribing the itemAdded event, then iterate over the start date until the end date and create new entries in the list. Just remember to disable further events firing within the method using EventFiringEnabled = false

I would create an ASP.NET WCF Service which uses Client Object Model to interact with SharePoint.. And call this service from InfoPath form and pass the parameters to one of the functions which will be responsible for adding items in the list.. You can simply use C# and iterate through the start till end date and make entries in the list..

It sounds like the fields were promoted to columns. In the InfoPath form, go to Form Options and click on the Property Promotion category. See if the 2 fields you mentioned are listed. If so, simply click Add to add your desired column(s) and click OK, then publish the form.

When using picture buttons, head to the picture button properties and deselect the option that says 'Hide picture button in read-only views'.

I believe your seeing the result of a perfect storm from using InfoPath, Versioning and Enh Rich Text. http://www.guio.com/marlene/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=10. Eliminate one of the three attributes(InfoPath, Versioning and Enh Rich Text) to resolve the issue .

Another option that seems to have worked for me is this: Create a template of the list from the development environment. Create the list in the production environment using the new list template. Create a new form in InfoPath selecting "SharePoint List" as the type. Set the location of the SharePoint site as your production site which contains the new ...

From memory the FormServerTemplates library always gets created in the root site of site collections. The path you have for your template http://vshoprspfe/services/FormServerTemplates/TravelAuthority.xsn makes me think /services is a site collection different than the one the travel library sits in (/). You say you have deployed the admin approved form ...

Instead of using SharePoint Event Receiver, write a Custom Web Service.. Call that service from InfoPath form, you will have the option to communicate between InfoPath form and Service (SharePoint in short)..

It's not possible to send message from event receiver to InfoPath. But you can send email to user.

Just got it other way.Since I am using a repeated table and the default hyperlink option given by the table I have deleted them and added the new hyperlink control and in data source i given the secondary data connection which I have created earlier to pull the urls. It brought all the urls as it is without any issues. Thanks.. :-)

Substring will just match on the first instance not find all occurrences. Try a translate function instead. =translate(myURL, ' ', '%20');

You mention that the form is stored in http://sharepoint/travel, but the error mentions the form residing in http://sharepoint/services. It could be that /travel and or /services are (in) different site collections using explicit managed paths. Get a listing of all Site Collections in that Web Application and see if this is the case.

There is a lot that can be wrong (particularly when you inherit a farm like this...) Have a look at the Alternate Access Mapping for the Web Applications in question. Are they in the same Zone? Also, looking at the URL it appears that the URL to Forms Server "vshoprspfe" is the part that is tripping up InfoPath. When you Published the form did you use ...

Might be a long shot but doesn't take more that a minute to try: If you have the form template (.xsn) that was created by designer you can save it as the source files (in designer 2010 it's in the publish options). Look at the manifest file in notepad and see if you can find a reference to the bad location. If found, change to the correct location and then ...

Yes you can have a form submit to a database or a folder in exchange. The advantage sharepoint brings is that data analysis on the form results is much easier. You can create forms using Infopath and Visual Studio has templates but they do not seem intuitive. Check out the videos on youtube by lynda.com they give a good overview of what is possible with ...

InfoPath includes a Form Template that can feed directly into a database. It can also publish the results to XML files, one per response. I think SP is required for the web forms functionality, but InfoPath filler can be used to fill the forms but not change them.

Customise the form using infopath designer and increase the table height and width which is conatining the contents. It might help you.
