The demonstration InfoPath form will now be displayed on the page, as shown next. Click Stop Editing from the ribbon to exit design mode. Using the InfoPath client, you create form templates that are used for a SharePoint document library.
As users complete the form and submit the data to SharePoint, the form is stored in the document library in the same way a Word document or any othercontent would be stored.
Another key benefit is that the individual data items captured in an InfoPath form can be bound to columns in the document library. In this case, using a Word template would also allow users to complete forms within the browser.
In the preceding example, you learned how to create a basic form and publish it to a form library. In effect, we created a form template that SharePoint can use to create new documents for storage within the MyForms library. To see this working, navigate to the MyForms library, open the Documents tab in the ribbon, and select New Document.
You can see that our InfoPath template is displayed in a new page. Click Save and then enter MyTestFile as the filename. Click Close to return to the MyForms document library. You can see that a new document named MyTestFile has been added to the library. Open InfoPath Designer. Behind the scenes, the data structure is defined as an XML schema. In the Fields pane on the left side of the page, right-click the myFields node and then select Properties from the context menu.
Change the Name to EquipmentRequest. In the Actions section, click Add Field. Create a new field of type Group and type the Name as Customer.
Repeat this step to create another group named Equipment. Select the Equipment node and then click Add Field. Add a groupnode and type the Name Item; however, this time check the Repeating checkbox, as shown: Now we can begin to add nodes for our individual fields. Within the Customer group, add the following fields: Within the Item repeating group, add the following fields: In the Equipment group, add the following fields: After all fields have been added, the data structure should look as shown next.
If any fields are not in the correct location, right-click the wayward field and select Move from the context menu to relocate the field within the data structure. We can now start adding controls to capture data for our fields. The design experience in InfoPath is very much data-led. When we define the data source first, creating a user interface is often a case of simply dragging the appropriate data elements onto the page.
InfoPath Designer automatically inserts an appropriate input control that is bound to the correct field. In the Customer Details section, select the cells that are underneath the title, and then, from the Layout tab of the ribbon, select Merge Cells. Repeat this step for theEquipment Details section. The revised form should look as follows: Drag the Customer group element into the Customer Details section of the form.
InfoPath Designer will automatically add text boxes for each field together with labels for the field name.
Rather than having the controls laid out sequentially on the page, we can reformat them into a table by converting the section control into a Controls in Layout Table control.
