Prevent users from inserting or deleting a control InfoPath 2007

Author: mety Nagm Labels::

When you design a form template in InfoPath, you can choose a specific compatibility mode to design a browser-compatible form template. When a browser-compatible form template is published to a server running InfoPath Forms Services, and then browser-enabled, forms based on the form template can be viewed in a Web browser. When you design a browser-compatible form template, some controls are unavailable in the Controls task pane because they cannot be displayed in a Web browser.
HideList of controls that cannot be inserted or removed

The following table lists the Office InfoPath 2007 controls that can be set, by using conditional formatting, to ensure that a user cannot add or remove them. The table also lists whether the controls are available for browser-compatible form templates.
ControlAvailable for browser-compatible form templates?

Repeating recursive sectionNo
Optional sectionYes
Repeating sectionYes
