Design a SharePoint Form Using the Blank Form Template

Scenario/Problem:You want to create a new form for user input to be used in SharePoint.


Solution:When you open InfoPath Designer 2010, you are automatically taken to the File, New page, as shown in Figure 2.1. Either double-click Blank Form or select the Blank Form button, and click the Design Form button to create a new blank form.

Figure 2.1. The New page provides templates for designing new forms.


To design a simple form, follow these steps:

1.
Click the Click to Add Title text that appears and enter a title for the form.

2.
Click in the bottom section of the form where it states Add Tables.

3.
Click the Insert ribbon bar menu and select the Two-Column 4 table in the Tables section. This is a layout table that assists in aligning the labels and controls on your form.

4.
Click the File menu and select Save.

5.
Enter a name for the form file and click OK. This will save a local copy of the form.

We now have a base form to which we can start adding controls, as shown in Figure 2.2.
