If there is a way to create a submit button in a
survey webpart without opening in the front page.The submit button
should work as save and close but should take to a different page which
would say "Thank you for submitting the survey....".

Any thoughts on this is very much appreciated.

This could definitely be done using the CEWP.

Looking forward to you upcoming book.

Can you give some additional pointers on how one would use CEWP.

Yeah blogs where I have referenced.

I think you might have to override ClickOnce() function, and validate the form, then redirect to a thank you page  or alert.

This may help you.
http://[vs]/sites/Site2/Lists/mySurvey/NewForm.aspx?toolpaneview=2 to drop a hidden CEWP on NewForm.aspx page.

Answer #6    Answered By: Nina Banks     Answered On: Dec 14

I have achieved this by doing something else let's say
1. the NewForm.aspx
2.Thank You page

If you have a link to enter into the NewForm.aspx where the survey  questions is, you can have the link with Source as a parameter, ex:
UNC : NewForm.aspx?Source=<Thankyou page>

Once u clicked the save button  in the NewForm page, values will be passed and will take u to the thank you page.

Let me know if im not clear describing this.

but please explain how it works if I click save  and close  in the survey  webpart.
Can I make the save and close button  to say Submit and drag the tool bar to bottom of the page.

Can you please resend the link you posted for this discussion.

I did not understand what you are really trying to explain.
If I can do this it will be a huge help for me.

Answer #9    Answered By: Christop Mcfadden     Answered On: Dec 14

The link below is not a link to a blog. I was just trying to explain that you will have to append ?toolpaneview=2 to the NewForm.aspx page  of your Survey to add a CEWP, if you don't want to use FrontPage 2003.

There is a similar trick mentioned in Todd's blog by adding a JavaScript in your 'Favorites'.

Answer #10    Answered By: Gopal Jamakhandi     Answered On: Dec 14

Add a CEWP to the instance page  in question. Include HTML that renders a
button that when clicked; runs calls the Save and Close JavaScript after
setting the Source element to the page that you want them to navigate

A simple way to add this type of functionality without any hacks or coding is to
use the Easy Forms web part from InfoTech Canada.. You can see the details on
my blog post about it:

I downloaded the trial version of Easy Forms web part. Looks good to me, but wondering if the web part has the ability to attach a file to a list item, for example in Announcements, Events, Discussion Board etc.

Secondly I added three paragraphs text in the body of an announcement list using the web part. The result showed up as one big paragraph, unless I used br tag or something (I didn't see rich text functionality).

Answer #14    Answered By: Alexis Ellis     Answered On: Dec 14

There are some limitations, such as those you've pointed out. You are not able to add attachments, and the rich text fields end up displaying as just a multi-row text area. Although the text entered here can be html source (I know it's not the most useful to the normal user in that case). As in the case of most tools - if it works for your scenario, its a great tool!

Answer #15    Answered By: Percy Beach     Answered On: Dec 14

Will these limitations be solved in the next version of Easy Forms web part, specially the attachment one?
