Infopath Buttons In SharePoint 2013


  • Hi there

    We have developed a form that is being used via SharePoint 2013.  We would like the audience to be able to click on a list item to open up the InfoPath form and then when in the InfoPath form, press on the created buttons to load different views of the form and hide/show certain sections....without it being in Edit mode.

    The premise being that the end user has an interactive form that is quick and easy to use upon loading.

    Is there any way that a user can activate the rules applied to the buttons in Read mode or does Edit mode always have to be activated first?

    Many thanks in advance for any hints or tips!

  • Hi Jivetalker (love that user name!): not sure I fully understand what you want to happen, but you can create different views for your form and have them change with a button/action rule. This can be set up inside the form when you design it. Users won't have to be in edit mode to use these buttons.
