Josh Meyer fun with .Net

Monday morning I attended a great session, InfoPath  2007: Office Integration and Collaboration Scenarios.  Here are some of the highlights…

  • New form import framework allows for importing of Microsoft Word forms into InfoPath, automatically converting Word fields to InfoPath fields
    • Underlines à Textboxes
    • Tables à Tables containing text boxes
    • Multi-row tables à Repeating tables
  • Improved Publishing Wizard
    • Publish to Email (moved from File menu)
    • Publish to install file (.js or .msi)
  • Integration with Outlook
  • Tight Outlook integration
    • You can now create a form folder to store InfoPath forms, with promoted properties displayed as columns
    • InfoPath icon
    • Support for conditional formatting
    • Fill out forms directly from the forms folder in Outlook
  • Browser forms
    • Possibly the coolest new feature, allows IP forms to be rendered as web forms in browser
    • Supports MOST of the same functionality as the thick client, with a few relatively minor exception

If you are an InfoPath 2003 developer you will find that most of the pain points from 2003 have been addressed in 2007, at least from what I can tell.  Anyway, I haven't been able to blog as much as I would have liked, but oh well.  I really want to blog on the awesome WSS v3 sessions from Todd Bleeker and Ted Pattison, so maybe I can find some time later.  These guys have tons of insight into developing for WSS so they are great resources.
