Sharepoint search results opening in infopath

  Asked By: Jered    Date: Sep 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2948

When I search a document library with infopath form files, it will
return the results as xml files. When I try to open it, it asks for
open or save infopath form. I want it to be opened in browser by default.
How to do this?

I already had the settings "Display as Web Page" for the document
library. It is working properly when we go to the list and open  any
existing/new form, by displaying it in browser. But when I search  for
the document  and click on any xml  file returned by search, it is
prompting for open or save  the infopath  form. I want the searched form
to open in browser  when I click on the search result xml file. Please
provide me some solution for this.

This will require a customized search  results web part - the OOTB one
uses the URL for InfoPath client, not form  services. If you do a web
search you should be able to find several examples of editing the xslt
for the web part, in this case you'd be adding the additional query
string parameter to open  the form in a web page.
