In this presentation I want to show you how to capture what the user types in two fields and merge the data into one additional single field. For example their first and second name. I also want the cell to be a read only cell.
My next objective is data validation for example a field cannot be blank. I want the user to type their email address. I
don’t want them to be able to submit the form without a valid email address. I also want to provide feedback, to my users, to let them know if they have inadvertently entered a typo error.
Finally I want users to be able to pick a restaurant name from an InfoPath drop down list. So my last objective for this presentation is to create a data connection to SharePoint list.
Calculate, (merge) two fields into one for example first and second name into full name field.
Apply rules to display validation error messages to textboxes, when a user enters an invalid email address or no data has been entered (left) blank. A unique error message under each textbox is shown when incorrect input has been entered. The error stands out with unique wording and coloured red.
You have a secondary data source that holds a list of entries; you want part of the data in the list – a name field, to be used to populate the items in a list box, InfoPath form.
