Hi Hagi,

You can use this code to get names of all fields:

var formObject = BizFormInfoProvider.GetBizFormInfo("FormName", SiteContext.CurrentSiteID);
var visibleFields = formObject.Form.GetFields(true, false);
foreach (FormFieldInfo field in visibleFields)
   var disyplayName = field.GetDisplayName(MacroResolver.GetInstance());

Does the webpart have to do anything besides show information? If not, may want to look at having an alternate form and changing everything to labels. It can be done through code, and I have a snippet somewhere that does that, but it may make more sense to have this as an alternate form depending on your needs. If thats not an option, I can find the snippet and post it here.
