Using a contact selector control in InfoPath 2007

If you want to build electonic forms solutions, InfoPath is the way to go… However, lots of people have built a lot of Outlook Forms in the past, so if you need to replace these forms, you will need to find an easy way for people to select e-mail addresses. Luckily InfoPath 2007 has a new control that enables you to choose e-mail address from an address book – the Contact Selector control – for more info see Open your rolodex from InfoPath using the Contact Selector on the InfoPath Team blog.

But you can also use this Contact Selector control when deploying the InfoPath forms to SharePoint 2007 – this is especially handy when you need to use these InfoPath forms in a workflow scenario. When you publish an InfoPath form to a SharePoint site - it will validate the contacts against the SharePoint server – for more information on how you can do this, take a look at How to: Configure a Contact Selector Control on your InfoPath Workflow form.
