I am playing around with workflows, and I have stumbled on what is either a possible bug or a mistake in documentation.
The SDK clearly states that "Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (version 3) supports absolute or server-relative paths in the workflow template definition. All form path URLs must be expressed in one of these formats. For example, an absolute path, such as "http://site/library/page.aspx"; or a server-relative path, such as "/layouts/page.aspx". Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (version 3) does not support link fix-up in workflow template definitions."
So from this I understand that a link like "http://sharepoint/_layouts/formserver/.../form.aspx" is as valid as "/layouts/formserver/.../form.aspx".
Well, either I misunderstood, or the documentation is wrong or there is a bug. I tried the full absolute URL ("http://sharepoint...") and when I set the workflow settings for a forms library, it tried to open the link as if it was relative ("http://sharepoint/http://sharepoint...").
I can only hope this is a minor bug, and microsoft are planning to fix this.
By the way, am I the only one who, when he writes fast on the keyboard writes "sharepoing" instead of "sharepoint"? I guess its because my fingers are used to writing "ping" and also because I am used to an agronomic keyboard, and I dont have one here at work. )-:
