A question about program operation
#1
Hi, I really like your program, I see alot of potential for what I need it to do. I created a form, added some records (internal form) and then decided to add more fields to the form. When I went to add more records to the form, the new fields that I added would not display.

Do I need to create or update the view to handle the new fields?

Also, how do I create a multi-page internal form? Is that a feature yet?

It would be great to have multi page forms that above the form fields you could put html/text/ or php code. Just being able to put text or embed flash content above a multi-page form submission on each page of the form would be awesome.

Thanks for your hard work.

Regards,
Smmedia

Hi Dave,

Exactly! This isn't obvious, I know - it even trips me up. But anytime you add fields, you need to add it to whatever Views you have created.

Nope! Multi-pages are inherently sequential (page 1 -> page 2 -> page 3). The admin interface is entirely flat: it arranges the fields in tabs, not sequential pages. That won't actually change with the admin section. The idea is that the admin interface is really for managing forms and less about inputting them as a "user".

The upcoming Form Builder will remedy this, though. It'll let you publish your internal forms (which will be converted to new "Form Builder" form types) on your site. The Form Builder takes View tabs and makes separate pages out them, creating multi-page form versions of the same tabbed field content. (Hope that makes sense!)

Agreed! The lack of labels and text has always been a regret. But again, with the Form Builder, you'll be able to add in any arbitrary text you want.

Sorry for pushing the Form Builder so much ... Smile It's just that I think it will fit the ticket very well for a lot of your requirements. I've finished the code and have been working on testing this last week. Still lots to do, but it'll be out in the next few weeks. As I mentioned in another of your threads, I'll have a video demo out in the next few days.
