I created a custom list with some fields and designed this new item form in Infopath and users enter the data here what I want the same login user opens new item,here I want to show a drop-down filed (it has values Yes/No)

when the user clicks the Yes form will submit the data in case of no form will not go to submit.

Here How I manage to put conditions in InfoPath that the log-in user has already created a list item?
If he had created list item then i want to show a Message in text fileld and show a Dropdown field to user
with values Yes/No.

    Based on your description, I understand that you want to compare the current user with created user. If the current user is equal to created user, then show a alert message, them submit the form.

    Per my knowledge, there is no option to achieve this through InfoPath.

    As a workaround, you could use some codes to fulfill the requirement.
