I have created a display form in InfoPath for a SharePoint list.

On the display form I have a visible control image button called 'Edit'.

When I click the button in display mode I switch to another view.

The problem is the new view is opening in display mode and not edit mode.

How can I control what mode the new view is opening in when the 'edit button' is clicked?

Best regards Morten

I think you must have checked "read only" in the new view. make sure to uncheck it by changing it in the properties option located just under the view tab enter image description here

Hopefully this helps :)
