Hints and Tips

You may use an Editable table to create the form definition.

The fields below will show up in the form. These fields must also match any data entry forms.

You can query pages (search) by these fields as well. If you want to query something in the search, it MUST be represented below.

Hints
  • Do not press "return" in any textarea fields when adding data to this table. All fields should contain one unbroken line of text.
  • Ignore the apparent "broken TWiki links" in the Name column. This is OK.

Columns in the Table
  • Name
    • required
    • Use WikiWord format
  • Type
    • required
    • one of: text, textarea, checkbox, radio, label, select, date
  • Size
    • required
    • For text fields, the size is the width in characters (e.g. 40)
    • For a text area, the size is columns x rows (e.g. 40x5)
    • If type is select, radio, or checkbox, the "values" should be a comma-separated list of choices
      • If you want a menu to be empty initially, begin the list with a comma
  • Values
    • depends on type
    • If type is select, radio, or checkbox, the "values" should be a list of choices.
      • these values may be defined in a page of their ownnamed by the firled name.
    • For other types, ignore the "values" field
  • Tooltip Message
    • optional
    • This should be a short descriptive phrase
  • Attributes

    • An attribute H indicates that this field should not be shown in view mode.
    • An attribute M indicates that this field is mandatory.
