How to: Log and Reset InfoPath Forms Services Configuration Settings

SharePoint 2010

Last modified: March 30, 2010

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

For the purposes of this task, the FormsService class and associated members are used to set the default values for most of the items on the Configure InfoPath Forms Services page, which is available on the General Application Settings page of the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration site.

The form that you create for this project contains a button and a rich text box. When executed, the rich text box is populated with the name of the class member used to set a configuration property, and the old and new values of each member.

Note Note

This topic assumes that Microsoft Visual Studio is installed on the Web front-end (WFE) or single farm server that is running InfoPath Forms Services.

To set up the project

  1. Create a new Visual Basic Windows Forms Application project in Microsoft Visual Studio.

  2. On the Project menu, click Add Reference.

  3. On the .NET tab of the Add Reference dialog box, select Microsoft SharePoint Foundation, and then click OK. (If Microsoft SharePoint Foundation is not available on the .NET tab, on the Browse tab, browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\ISAPI\, select the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll assembly, and then click OK.

  4. On the Project menu, click Add Reference again.

  5. On the Browse tab of the Add Reference dialog box, browse to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Bin\, select the Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.dll assembly, and then click OK.

To add controls and code to the form

  1. Add the following controls to the form. These can be found in the All Windows Forms category of the Visual Studio Toolbox:

    • A Button control

    • A RichTextBox control

  2. Rename the button to "List and Reset Configuration Settings" by modifying the Text property of the button in the Properties Window.

  3. Reposition and resize the form and the controls until all text can be seen on the button and the RichTextBox control fills most of the form.

  4. On the View menu, click Code.

  5. Paste the following code into the code window, replacing all existing code.

  6. Click Form1.vb [Design] on the Window menu.

  7. In the Properties Window, click the drop-down list, and then select Button1.

  8. In the Properties Window, click the Events button, which is typically the fourth button from the left in the row of buttons under the drop-down list.

  9. In the Action section, click the drop-down for the Click event, and then select Button1_Click.

  10. On the File menu, click Save All.

  11. Press F5 to run the application.

Use the procedures earlier in this section to create a new Visual Basic Windows Forms application that uses the following code example to log and reset InfoPath Forms Services configuration settings.
