Infopath form view when submitted through email RRS feed

  • Question

  • when a infopath form is submitted through email data connection the view within the email is distorted, elongated horizontally (only when there is a date picker in the form). This only happens in outlook 2010. Is there any way to fix?

    View is fine in all other email clients

  • Are you using the email form template?if so they will show up fine, if not and you are using a browser based form then this will happen as when you say a date picker control is added.  To get around this in browser based controls, add a two text fields and a new section, put the date picker control into the section, when a date is selected or the value of the control changes have an action rule hide the section so the date picker dissapears, have it also copy its value to the 1st text box control, have a function set against the 2nd text box control to do a substring before(1st text box control, "T") and this will then output only the date into the 2nd text box control and not the time.  Now you have two text box controls, one showing the date and time seelcted in the date picker, he 2nd showing only the date, drop which ever one you dont need into the section that will be hidden and leave the one you want on the page for display, now your emails should format correctly.
