We have found that by installign EForms on the Workpalce XT instance used by the IBM ECM Widgets that any content objects of class "Form Data" when viewed present the appropriate EForms display and seem to function correctly.
However, it is mentioned in the ECM Help (@ http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/p8docs/v4r5m1/topic/com.ibm.p8.doc/ecmwidgets_help/ref/content_list_configuring.htm) for the content list widget that:
Restriction: The Content List widget does not support certain MIME types that are specific to Workplace and Workplace XT. The widget does not display these document types correctly and, as a result, users might encounter errors when they attempt to open the documents. To avoid these errors, use a stored search that excludes the following MIME types:
The question: Does this mean you can't use eform content objects with the content list widget? is specific functionality not supported, or is this warning about something else entirely?

Re: ECM Widgets 188.8.131.52 EForms Support w/ Content List widget2010-07-13T09:02:03Z in response to drdamourYou can open eForm type document in content list widget. Please refer to the attachment. Is it what you want? Bascially, you can see the eForm related documents such eForm template or entry template. but if you want to do further operation such as save, you will encounter some exception or errors

Re: ECM Widgets 184.108.40.206 EForms Support w/ Content List widget2010-07-19T21:28:09Z in response to SystemAdminI'm working with DrDamour.
We have been able to open and save an eForm via Content List Widget. In your example you had not created an eForm document policy for the form, so you were unable to save. Once you do that the CLW will allow you to save the form... and we have it working without errors.
However when we use the Toolbar widget to open the an eForm document policy, (use case being the ad hoc creation of an eForm "form data" document), we get an error.
The error is:
Message: Permission denied
We're curious why the two widgets work differently for opening the same type of content, and if there is an easy fix for the error being generated in FormUtil.js?
Thanks ahead of time for any help,
