Hello all,

I've got an InfoPath 2010 form that I've added as a webpart on a SharePoint 2010 page. It's all working fine however I'm unable to change the Submit Behaviour. As you can see in the attached screenshot the behviour is greyed out and I've not got an idea as to why. Really I need the form to open a new form on submit.

 Submit behaviour greyed out on InfoPath Webpart
Any pointers greatly apprectiated.

My guess would be it is detecting the submit as an illegal type or you have not set a default submit.

In your form go into the Submit options and check. In 2010 they now have a box to select the default submit.

SharePoint needs to see this default and there may be some stipulations on what kinds of Submits a webpart will allow. I have not played with this yet.

I would assume submit to a library would be fine.

I think on a webpart you would want it to close and not leave the form open. This should be a reset of the form which i think is what you want, but again would need to play with it.

Hi Clayfox,

On my submit I'm using custom rules with the data connection as the last option. I may be being blind but I can't see a tick box for a default Submit option :S could you screenshot where I should see it?

Unfortunately on this particular webpart I need the form to open a new form after Submit.

Curiously, and adding a bit more detail, this option was available the first time I added the form to SharePoint but now it is greyed out as shown in the screenshot from my first post.

Thanks,
Dan

I am guessing it does not like your rules.

In SharePoint 2010 at the end of the submit data connection wizard I have been seeing a check box but maybe it is only for Filler forms.

There is also the Submit Options button in the ribbon. There you can configure the default.  I am guessign you should only have one submit.

I would make a test and create a new button with just the submit and see if you get the same issue, or a new simple form.  I am guessing something you added to the button has broken this.

If you use design checker does it show any warnings or errors?
