Linksys validating formview itemupdating newvalues
For reference, here are the places that Info Path can submit to; Now, given that this series of articles is about Share Point, which option of the above list do you think we are interested in? Back in part 4 of this series, we first published the form and as part of that process, created a form library called “Leave Forms”. Therefore, if you use the “Save” option, the “In-progress” copies of the form are stored in the document library and no data validation has taken place. Note the before and after screenshots below Spot the difference?
The “Save” and “Save As” buttons are missing, and with that I can confidently say that I have now made this form Homer proof because he can’t inadvertently click “Save” and think he has submitted the form. “You must select a data connection for submitting to a Share Point document library”.
First up, I want to categorically state that, as a heterosexual Australian male, I have a few stereotypical personality traits .Of course, it is so Homer proof that he now has no way to submit the form, so now we have to enable the “Submit” button. Hmmm…I hope that something about that message sounds vaguely familiar to you.Once again, open the leave form in design mode, and choose “Submit Options” from the “Tools” menu. That is because this is not the first time we have dealt with data connections.We added some validation rules to ensure that you could not return to work before you started your leave of absence. Like everything else designed by nerdy engineers, Info Path and Forms Services can be used in a few different ways.But at the end of that post, I showed how a published form did not obey our data validation rule, where the form was set to prohibit incorrect dates, yet I was able to click save and put the form straight into the document library. This offers flexibility of course, but has the disadvantage that if the flexibility is not well understood (i.e not reading the instructions ), it is easy to cause user confusion.
