InfoPath is acting up

13 12 2010

We’ve been trying to update the list definitions of the SharePoint list we’re connecting our form to. Problem is, last update deleted and recreated the list, and now it refuses to connect.

I guess there might be a way to reconnect it, but it’s just so frustrating working without code access at times like these. I also tried to google the error-code to see who else had the same issue. Found this site: http://anjlab.com/lenta . Crazy!

Between a rock and a hard place

9 12 2010

We’ve been developing this InfoPath application for a few weeks now. The problem is, I’ve been developing it unconnected to SharePoint. This brings two problems along, the first that I have to redo ALL my connections since I haven’t used the proper field names or namespaces during development. And second, that when we connect firmly to the SharePoint list we for some reason lose the ability to write custom code. So we either have to code our own submit/update/delete functions for the custom list and connect it to a “free” form, or as is the case, create a form which can’t use any custom code. I guess this is a sandbox thing, but I don’t enjoy it very much. InfoPath is still very rich, but it’s rough not being able to add code.

InfoPath 2010

I’m currently working on a project with InfoPath 2010. It seems this version is much different from previous versions. From a design standpoint, it’s very hard to work with, but I’m amazed how much advanced stuff you can do without writing a single line of code. We previously had some issues with not being able to publish our form to a custom list. But I think I’ve found a way around it. By accessing the list webservice native in SharePoint 2010, I’m able to do a SOAP call to insert data that way. Yay!
