Definition

<xsd:element name="hwsOperation">
  <xsd:complexType>
    <xsd:choice>
      <xsd:element ref="xsf:input"/>
    </xsd:choice>
    <xsd:attribute name="type" type="xsd:string" use="required"></xsd:attribute>
    <xsd:attribute name="typeID" type="xsd:string" use="required"></xsd:attribute>
    <xsd:attribute name="serviceUrl" type="xsd:string" use="required"></xsd:attribute>
  </xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>

Remarks

Upon submit, the hwsAdapter element automatically creates a globally unique identifier (GUID), as required by the HWS Web service; encodes the XML file; and updates the processing instructions of the XML instance file with the new GUID.

Note   If this element or attribute is in the form definition file (.xsf), InfoPath Forms Services will prevent the form template from being deployed to the server as a browser-compatible form.
