This type or member can be accessed only from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler.

Examples

In the following code example, the New property is used to determine if the form has been saved previously, and if not, the SaveAs method is used to save the form to the specified URL.

if(this.New)
{
   this.SaveAs("c:\\myforms\\form1.xml");
}
else
{
   this.Save();
}
If(Me.New) Then
   Me.SaveAs("c:\\myforms\\form1.xml")
Else
   Me.Save()
End If
