InfoPath in SharePoint 2010:
In this article I'm trying to explain how to create InfoPath in SharePoint 2010, and how to publish that and how to store the information into List or Libraries using InfoPath's and how to work out in SharePoint InfoPath's.
Create List under your SharePoint site, and give a name for that as "InfoPathList" as shown in below figure.
Go to that List and then choose Customize form available under List Tools.
Once you click on that Customize form then a new Microsoft InfoPath will be opened, design that form as you need. In my example I just save the employee information into that list. So, I just design the list as per the same.
Open MS InfoPath and then choose Insert menu available in top navigation bar then choose Custom table format and choose the required columns and rows then Design the table using Toolbox controls available under Home menu.
Now, I want to design the form as per my requirement, for that I just add one textbox to enter name of the employee purpose and modify that textbox properties as shown in the below fig.
Once properties has been changed then field name to be changed as per your column visibility into the List result.
In the same manner for all rows and controls need to redesign and modify as per your requirement. The final design is looks become like below.
Now, design everything is completed now I want to save those details into my list for that I just create one Button and design the button control for saving form information into SharePoint List / Libraries.
Just right click on button control and then choose button properties then a new popup window will appear, in Action dropdown you have no.of options in that you just choose Submit then click on Submit options button available in that button properties popup window, as shown in below fig.
After click on Show option button then a new popup will appear there you just choose where you need to save those details, ex: if you want to save that info into List then choose SharePoint List and if you want to save in Library then choose SharePoint Library.
In my scenario I want to save that into SharePoint List. So, I just choose SharePoint List and then click on Ok button.
Now, the time to publish that InfoPath, open file menu then choose Publish option then choose SharePoint List as shown in below fig.
Now, everything is published successfully, now you can able to work out this. For checking purpose you just click on preview button then add few records then check that in your List.
Once submitted those details then check that in your SharePoint List, as shown in below fig.
Hope this article will help you those who are beginners for implementing SharePoint InfoPath’s and those who are fresher’s.
