InfoPath 2010 & SharePoint Designer list forms Editing

List Forms: SharePoint list contains a set of list forms that you use to view, edit, or add items to a list. Each list form displays the columns from that list as fields on a page where users can view add, or edit information. Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 can customize these forms so that they’re easier to use and more targeted toward your business solution. Microsoft InfoPath 2010 in SharePoint Designer is used to create and customize these forms.
Microsoft InfoPath 2010
InfoPath 2010 is a powerful form creation and information gathering program included in the Microsoft Office 2010 release. Using InfoPath 2010, you can create highly customized, sophisticated forms without writing any code. You can drag and drop fields onto the form, add instant form validation using a set of rules, and apply different themes or branding to the form.
Customizing a list form in InfoPath Designer 2010 is similar to the experience of customizing a list form in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010. Typically, you add and remove fields, add text, graphics, and server controls, and change the layout and look and feel of the form.
 
 
 
Working:
When you open a list in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 and look at the available forms for that list, you see three forms: DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx, and NewForm.aspx
 

DispForm.aspx is used to display the properties of an item in the list.

EditForm.aspx is used to edit the item in the list.

NewForm.aspx is used to create new items in the list.

To customize these forms in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010, you open them individually and make changes to them or create new forms to replace them. The next time you open your site in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010, you’ll notice the addition of the new forms on the summary page for the list.

 
Default List Form
The default edit form (EditForm.aspx) appears as follows in the browser.
When you customize the form in InfoPath 2010, the new edit form (editifs.aspx with associated InfoPath template) appears as follows in the browser.
 
How to customize a list form using InfoPath 2010:
    1. Open your site in Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010.
    2. In the Navigation pane, click Lists and Libraries.
    3. Open the list you want to customize.
 
    1. On the List Settings tab, in the Actions group, click Design Forms in InfoPath, and then choose the content type that you want to use for the list forms.
                                               

      InfoPath 2010 opens with a new InfoPath Form Template.
                        
       
 
  1. Use the form editing tools in InfoPath 2010 to customize the look and feel of your form and add the necessary rules based logic to the form.
  2. When finished with your customization, publish the template to your SharePoint list. There are two ways you can do this:
      1. If you’re finished working on your form, simply close the form and when prompted, choose Save and Publish.
     
    1. To publish the form and continue working in InfoPath, click the File tab, choose Info, and click Quick Publish.
                     
       
  3. Click OK to the publish confirmation message.
  4. Close InfoPath 2010 and return to Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 if necessary.

Sharepoint 2010 rating feature

Rating:

In SharePoint 2010 there is a new feature called Ratings. Ratings are very generic things that have a lot of flexibility they allow:

1).Users to rate content (of any type, Lists, Documents, Pages on a site, and even Content Types).

2).Store that ratings data in the database just like the new social tags that are part of 2010.

3).A rating represents the average score from all users submitting a rating for that item.

4).SharePoint Server provides the rating store, a control to rate items, and a web service to collect and consume the ratings. This service can be used from anywhere inside or outside of the system, including Office 2010 clients.

5).Ratings feature activated, you can enable support for it in individual document libraries.  When it’s turned on, users will see an interface like this:

Getting Started: To start with ratings, we take a simple list with some movie titles in it that we’ll enable ratings on.

To enable ratings, we go into the settings for this list. Under General Settings for the list you’ll see a new option called Ratings settings.

Select this and you’ll see the option to turn ratings on or off for this list. It works the same for a Document Library.

Now two new columns have been added (from the site columns the service created above). A Rating column (this is a new Content Type) and a Number column to hold the number or ratings. Each time a user clicks on a rating for each item, the number goes up. This is used to average out the rating score to produce the overall rating value for the item.

Now when we look at our list we see the new Rating and Counter columns added (they’re added by default to your list but you can change this in the view just like any other column).

As you hover your mouse over the stars the color changes to yellow to reflect the rating you’re about to assign via a mouse click.

 

Once you click on a rating a confirmation tooltip is shown. This is the second star in the ratings control and displays the current user’s personalized rating. This is all done asynchronously so there are no icky postbacks.

Purpose to build it:

SharePoint 2007 doesn’t provide any rating capabilities. As for SharePoint 2010 – it does provide new rating capabilities, but still has some limitations such as:

No support for voting (thumb-up/thumb-down) and “Kicking” rating methods

No support for adding comments to ratings

No support for locking an item from being rated after a defined date

How to add rating to SharePoint 2010?

Created a custom content type and page layout inherited from the OOTB article page layout.  Within this page layout, users are able to rate the content on the page from a scale of 1 to 5.Enable ratings within my list settings by going to the /Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx view and clicking on the Library Settings link on the Library tab of the ribbon:

Enable rating functionality on the list by going Rating Settings and checking the “Allow items in this list to be rated?” –> yes radio button: 

Two new site columns/meta-data columns to my list called Number of Ratings and Rating (0-5):

 

Now, on my pages list, on the allitems.aspx view, it added a new rating field type web control associated with those columns:

Now Ajax functionality allows you to rate the item without checking out the list item.

Now from the timer job called “User Profile Service Application – Social Rating Synchronization Job” (Central Admin –> Monitoring –> Review Job Definitions) and pressed the Run Now button.  After a minute or so, the average rating showed up.

Now a rating control on content page layout which users can now use to rate:

Conclusion
With WebMatrix, there seems to be all you need to build and maintain a web application.

We look forward to the completed product, but it promises well.
