Example Code: Reading Forms and Form Fields

Applies to: SharePoint Workspace 2010 | Visual Studio 2008

This C# code demonstrates how to find a specific form in a tool by its Form ID. The ReadForms operation returns the Form ID as a string, not as a double. The following code fragment:

  • Reads the forms in the tool.

  • Finds the form with the specified ID.

  • Read the fields of that form.

// First create the GrooveForms2 service and 
// verify that the tool is initialized.

// Iterate through the forms in the Forms tool
GrooveForms2.Form[] forms = forms2Svc.ReadForms();
for (int i =0; i < forms.Length; i++) 
    GrooveForms2.Form form = forms[i];
    // Test to see if expected form exists 
    if (form.ID == "2.1697193868839881E+086")
        // Set the HTTP Post URL to form URI
        forms2Svc.Url = HTTPAddressAndPort + form.URI;
        // Read form fields
        GrooveForms2.FormsField[] fields = forms2Svc.ReadFormFields();
        for (int j=0; j < fields.Length; j++)
            GrooveForms2.FormsField field = fields[j];
            string name = field.Name;
            string type = field.DataType;
            // ...
        // Found form, do not need to check others
