InitializeEventArgs.InputParameters property

Sets name/value pairs for use as custom parameters that can be used in the form being initialized in the XmlFormView control.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server (in Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.dll)

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property InputParameters As Dictionary(Of String, String)
	Get
'Usage
Dim instance As InitializeEventArgs
Dim value As Dictionary(Of String, String)

value = instance.InputParameters

For more information about query and input parameters, see How To: Use Query Parameters to Invoke Browser-Enabled InfoPath Forms.

In the following example, the InputParameters property is used in the Initialize event of the XmlFormView control to create a name/value pair indicating the department name.

Protected Sub XmlFormView1_Initialize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.InitializeEventArgs) Handles XmlFormView1.Initialize
    e.InputParameters("Dept") = "Accounting"
End Sub

To use this input parameter in form code, use the InputParameters property of the LoadingEventArgs object available in the Microsoft.Office.InfoPath namespace. For example, the value set in the XmlFormView1 initialization event is used to set a field's value in the form.

Public Sub FormEvents_Loading(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As LoadingEventArgs)
    Dim MyNav As XPathNavigator
    MyNav = Me.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator()
    MyNav.SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:field2", Me.NamespaceManager).SetValue(e.InputParameters("Dept").ToString())
End Sub

To use this input parameter in form code, use the InputParameters property of the LoadingEventArgs object available in the Microsoft.Office.InfoPath namespace. For example, the value set in the XmlFormView1 initialization event is used to set a field's value in the form.

public void FormEvents_Loading(object sender, LoadingEventArgs e)
{
    XPathNavigator myNav = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator();
    myNav.SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:field2", this.NamespaceManager).SetValue(e.InputParameters["Dept"].ToString());
}
