Design a SharePoint Form Using the Blank Form Template

When you open InfoPath Designer 2010, you are automatically taken to the File, New page, as shown in Figure 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 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.

Figure 2. Entering a title and adding a layout table to a form produces a base form.


Add Controls

Use the Controls section from the Home top ribbon bar.

To add controls to your form, follow these steps:

1.
Click the first Add Control cell in the layout table of the form.

2.
From the Home ribbon bar, locate the Controls section, as shown in Figure 3, and click Text Box.

Figure 3. The Controls section displays the available controls that you can insert onto your form.


3.
Click the Add label in the cell to the left of the text box and enter a label for this entry. This is tell the user what information to enter into the text box.

4.
Repeat these steps for the remaining rows in the layout table. Your form should look similar to Figure 4

Figure 4. Adding labels and controls to the form provides the basis for user data entry.

5.
Click Save from the File menu to save your changes locally.
