Using Views with InfoPath List Forms

As mentioned earlier in this chapter, using InfoPath views you can create multiple views of a form, including separate views for the new, edit, and display forms. In this section, you learn how to create new, display, and edit views of a list form and change the background color of each form. You also learn how to set fields on the edit form to read-only and set a custom display form to read-only.
