InfoPathDev.com: Excellent InfoPath Resource


Shoutout to InfoPathDev.com – several of our product team alums are hosting an excellent resource for the InfoPath developer community. Lots of great content there: sample form templates, very lively forums, and walkthroughs. My personal favorites:

1) Localizing form templates. Very clever method, using secondary data connections to store localizations in XML files. I still refer to it as “the Shiraz Cupala method”. Note that this method works even better with InfoPath 2007, as button labels can now be dynamic (can come from a data source).

2) Super-FAQ: auto-generating sequential row numbers.

3) Interop between rules and code: article on xdextension. Note that this trick is not supported in browser-enabled form templates.

    If you have Arabic support installed, there will be a button in the designer toolbar which allows you to flip the reading order from LTR to RTL.
