InfoPath 2010 Tutorial: InfoPath 2010 views and page layout templates

Learn how InfoPath 2010 page layout templates behave when you add page breaks between them on InfoPath 2010 views.

Views in InfoPath 2010 serve as a canvas on which you can place controls that can be used to fill out a form. An InfoPath form always contains at least one view. You can add more than one view to a form and you can also add different types of views (such as read-only views or print views) to an InfoPath form.

Page layouts can be used to lay out controls on a view. They can also serve to separate controls that should be printed on several pages when an InfoPath form is printed out. A view can contain one or more page layouts, and in each page layout you can place tables to precisely lay out controls.

The video shown below explains what views and page layouts are and shows you how to use them in InfoPath 2010.
