Sample text

Part II is about advanced form design. In this part of the book we talk about using more advanced form design techniques, including how to write code for InfoPath. These chapters are geared mainly toward software developers who have some basic coding experience. However, if you are an information worker and you have completed Part I of this book, the second part may interest you as well. In Part II, we talk about such topics as the InfoPath object model (Chapter 15), advanced topics regarding InfoPath Forms Services (Chapter 17), and ways to host InfoPath (Chapter 18).

We thank Mike Palmer, Andrew Begun, Silviu Ifrim, Eric Korn, and Nima Mirzad for their help with the InfoPath object model. • Jeff Bienvenu and Aparna Suripeddi shared their knowledge of Information Rights Management. Preface • Mary Smith provided pointers to the Office Customization Tool. • Without Travis Rhodes and Nick Dallett, we couldn’t have included topics on the data connection library, centrally managed connection library, and Universal Data Connection (UDC) files. • Natalie Eason helped set up and convey all sorts of information on Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO).

In addition, many other people helped us along the way, whether with technical information or advice on what topics would be most useful to readers. • Dragos Barac helped us with user roles, workflow, and hosting.
