I’m still living in InfoPath Forms world and I needed to make one of those “small” changes to a form that, unfortunately, breaks a naming convention I adopted with it two weeks ago. I thought to myself, “someone is going to look at this thing a year from now and say, ‘What was Paul thinking? By Jove, his naming convention makes no sense!”
I realized that I could create a view on the form for this and then, once again, realized that I could have been doing something like this all along. I added a “Developer Notes” view to the InfoPath form as such:
I’ve configured the form so that users can’t get to that view and therefore, it’s only visible with the InfoPath client in design view. Now I feel a little inoculated against some future unknown developer looking at my form and thinking bad thoughts about me. Phew!
