Like the Spanish Inquisition,
“Our chief weapon is surprise…surprise and fear…fear and surprise…. Our two weapons are fear and surprise…and ruthless efficiency……”
In part 1 of this 2 part series we created an InfoPath form which used the SharePoint Object Model in it’s code behind to create new Task list items.
In part 2 of this 2 part series we published this InfoPath form to SharePoint and hooked it into the SharePoint user interface by using a content editor web part to create an HTML link to the browser form.
In part 3 of this 2 part series I conducted a small experiment to see how one could have this InfoPath form replace the default NewForm.aspx called when adding task list items.
If you were doing this in a production setting, you could quite easily specify the URL of a custom NewForm page called to add new list items, and there are plenty of articles available for custom list form pages.

Possibly a handy technique for quick List form replacements, maybe even User Editable List forms (shudder :-)) ?????
