Overview

Build innovative, XML-based solutions faster—with expert guidance from three veterans of the Microsoft InfoPath design team. Discover how to use common InfoPath design patterns to accelerate the development of forms with a dynamic, easy-to-use front end that connects seamlessly with middle-tier services and back-end servers, including databases, Web services, and Microsoft BizTalk® Server. The authors walk you through a range of programming scenarios—explaining the pros and cons of various approaches and sharing their best practices and undocumented tips. You’ll also find real-world examples, including a complete, three-tier business solution.

Discover how to:

  • Customize and deploy your own InfoPath forms, taking advantage of ready-made sample code
  • Create “smart” InfoPath forms to provide a dynamic experience using conditional visibility, data validation, and autopopulation
  • Design a rich form interface with structured and dynamic sections, multiple views, and calculations
  • Build forms-based workflow processing into InfoPath forms using e-mail, SharePoint® servers, and BizTalk
  • Use the Microsoft .NET common language runtime-based object model to increase development flexibility
  • Receive and submit data for your forms using back-end databases and Web services
