convenient place to show Remove All can be on the Shortcut menu, where it s safely hidden unless a user brings up the context menu on the control Actions like Insert and Remove are straightforward Let s brie y discuss what some of the other actions mean Two of the other actions are Insert Above and Insert Below You might ask, Insert above and below what Remember that when your custom commands for this control are shown to the user, a control must be selected; otherwise, the command won t show That is, there is always a context for the action Think of it as Insert above the control instance the user has selected A Choice Section control s Replace With action is actually quite tricky in its function and is best explained with an example Let s say we have Choice Section controls A, B, and C You know that because this is a Choice Group control, only one Choice Section of the Choice Group can exist at any time So either A or B or C can be in the form at a given moment Let s assume that A is the default choice in the form When we show the context menu for A, it will say Replace with B and Replace with C (Figure 453) What if B was in the form Its context menu would show insert commands for A and C As you can see, when you display the context menu for a Choice Section when lling out the form, the menu shows commands for all Choice Sections under the same Choice Group (except, of course, the Choice Section that is already inserted)

In this chapter, we ve rounded out our discussion about controls You learned about the advanced controls available in InfoPath in design mode that you can add to your form template in order to do some fairly complex operations You ve also learned how to customize your controls through control properties Now you can design intricate form templates In the next chapter, we ll expand our discussion of form design even further by showing you how to add logic to your form templates without having to ever write a line of code

In the last chapter, you learned about the advanced controls available in the InfoPath design mode as well as some advanced customizations you can do In this chapter, we ll dive into some of the more advanced design features you can use to add business logic to your form templates without writing any code at all We ll not only talk about conditional formatting, which is a control-centric feature, but we ll also talk about data-centric features such as data validation and rules that happen to be exposed through the properties dialogs for controls Those features act on the data in the underlying data source but also have an affect on controls Let s start by talking about conditional formatting, which is a feature that is available for most controls

In 4, we talked about properties dialogs for controls and the different tabs that appear, including the Display tab Conditional formatting is the one feature that appears in the Display tab for almost every control In fact, the Hyperlink, Scrolling Region, and Horizontal Region controls are the only ones that don t support this feature However, the properties dialog isn t the only way to access it Once you select a control, you can access the Conditional Formatting dialog from the Format menu or the context menu for the control

Conditional formatting allows you to format a control (eg, bold, italic, underline) based on a set of conditions However, this feature allows you to do more than just format the control You can also hide the control, disable it, or make it read-only (The available options depend on the type of control) You can also use this feature to do such things as hide a certain row in a Repeating Table or color it green, for example, based on a set of conditions In some cases, such as with Repeating Tables, Repeating Sections, and Optional Sections, you can even prevent users from inserting or deleting instances of the control based on conditions you specify (In some cases, such as for a Rich Text Box control that doesn t support all types of formatting, certain options will be disabled) Let s set conditional formatting on a Text Box as an example To specify conditional formatting for a Text Box, the rst step you must take is to open the Conditional Formatting dialog from the Format menu (Of course, as we mentioned, you can also open this dialog by clicking the Conditional Formatting button in the Display tab of the properties dialog or from the context menu) When you click on the Conditional Formatting menu item on the Format menu, the dialog shown in Figure 51 opens At rst, this dialog doesn t look very interesting Later, after we add a few conditions, this dialog will display all the conditions and their corresponding actions
