Questions tagged [infopath-rules]

InfoPath rules are specific instructions defined in an InfoPath form for handling formatting and actions. Rules may be run automatically when the form is loaded, when a specific field changes, when a button is clicked, or when some other condition is met. Rules can perform a variety of functions such as hiding/displaying fields, populating fields, and submitting forms.
