How to Deploy an InfoPath 2007 Form Containing Managed Code to a Browser-Enabled WSS v3 Library
Update (8-14-2006): InfoPath Forms Services is NOT part of WSS v3. It is a separate install, or you can install it as part of the MOSS 2007 Beta 2 install. The RTM version, last I heard, will be available as a separate SKU or as part of MOSS 2007 Enterprise Edition. Assuming you have already created an InfoPath form containing managed code, this document will explain the steps necessary to deploy it to a WSS form library that is “web-enabled” by InfoPath Forms Services. Publish the Template to the ......

OFC 327 Integrating Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 Forms into Workflow Solutions and Business Processes
Ok, I think I'm just going to blog on the cool InfoPath sessions from TechEd, since there will probably be tons of people talking about all the great SharePoint sessions.

Tam Tam World Cup 2006 Webpart
How cool is this?!? After not posting for several months I should probably post something of some educational value, but this was just too cool. Being a lifelong soccer player and fan I am really excited about this. The guys at Tam Tam have created a web part that allows you to predict match scores for the World Cup coming up in less than a month in Germany. The webpart automatically retrieves actual scores from their public web service and updates the webpart as matches are played. You can get the ......

Using ASP.Net 2.0 WebParts with WSS v2!
This is great news! Anyone who's spent time developing custom web parts for WSS knows what a pain it is to develop, test, and deploy them. Jan Tielens and the other guys at U2U made all of our lives much easier with the SmartPart v1, and now it seems they've outdone themselves! They have been working, with full support of the Microsoft SharePoint Team, to develop the SmartPart v2, or Son of SmartPart as Mike Fitzmaurice has pronounced it. This new SmartPart will allow WSS to host ASP.Net 2.0 web ......

Overriding Style at the Page Level WITHOUT Using FrontPage
Anyone who's been working with WSS for any length of time has undoubtedly run into the infamous "ghosting" issue. For anyone who hasn't, check out Todd Bleeker's discussion of the subject here. Now on to the subject at hand. Although I'm a proponent of site definitions as a method of global customization, what about page level customization? Here's an example: Our current customer uses a Windows application containing a Visio drawing in the Visio ActiveX drawing control. It basically monitors a ......

Deploying Fully Trusted InfoPath form to SharePoint Form Library - Eliminating headaches with Citrix
Citrix is an extremely powerful tool for allowing remote users to connect and participate in a corporate domain environment. For a company like our current client, who has locations all over the world that must be connected, it's a great way to maximize available bandwidth. One of the current projects we're doing involves an InfoPath form installed in a WSS form library. The form executes managed code that requires it to be fully trusted, and it must be available to various locations in the U.S. ......
