I have a rather complex form that was built without a schema - I now need to access a few fields on the form from my workflow process and it seems that I will need to bind these fields to a schema to do so. I tried to create a simple schema to which I could bind the few fields that need to be referenced in the workflow, but when I do so, none of my fields get carried forward as the form gets assigned to new individuals in the workflow. If I remove any bindings to the schema it works. It seems, therefore, that if a schema is used at all, all fields must be bound to it. Is this the case or could there be some other problem? Due to the forms complexity I really don't want to try to create a schema and bind all fields. Can anyone tell me whether I do need to bind all fields to the schema?
Thanks for clarifying this - when I try to access the form fields via xpath and don't have them bound to a schema I can't drill down to the form fields - can you clarify how you would use xpath to reference them - if this can be done it would save me a huge amount of work.
Further to my last post, if I don't have the fields bound to a schema and I try to reference a form field from a process step using XPath, I can only expand the form as far as the following. As you can see, the fields themselves are not visible.
