The New method was called from an event handler for the Loading event.

The New method can only be used to create a new form that is based on an existing form; it cannot be used to create a new form that is based on a form template. To create a form from a form template, use the NewFromFormTemplate method.

When you use the New method, the new form opens in Microsoft InfoPath and is ready to be filled out.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed only from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler.
