Activates a form template to a SharePoint site collection.
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server (in Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.dll)
An administrator approved form template is not available for use on a SharePoint site until it is activated to the site. Using the method for a form template will make the form template available in the Form Templates library of the root site in the site collection, and as a content type available for subsites of the site collection. The equivalent procedure on the Central Administration site is Activate to a Site Collection, available on the drop-down menu of a form template on the Manage form templates page.
The following example activates all form templates uploaded to the server farm to a site collection, and writes a message to the console for each form template that is activated.
An additional imports statement is required for the Microsoft.SharePoint namespace.
Dim LocalFormsService As FormsService Dim LocalFarm As SPFarm Dim ft As FormTemplate Dim ExampleSite As SPSite Try LocalFarm = SPFarm.Local ExampleSite = New SPSite("http://server/sites/hrteam/") LocalFormsService = LocalFarm.Services.GetValue(Of FormsService)(FormsService.ServiceName) For Each ft In LocalFormsService.FormTemplates ft.Activate(ExampleSite) Console.WriteLine("Form template " & ft.Name & " activated to the " & ExampleSite.ToString()) Next Console.Write("Press Enter to Continue") Console.ReadLine() Catch ex As Exception Console.WriteLine("Error: " + ex.Message) Console.Write("Press Enter to Continue") Console.ReadLine() End Try
