Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Extending ad_form for assessment ?

Posted by Don Baccus on
Well, I think it's obvious I agree with Bart :)  I didn't mean to give birth to a five-headed monster, really!

Yes, the grouping issue is one that's bugged me and we should adress it.  Currently you can do with by writing a custom style that groups every instance in your form on one line (I did that for GP) but of course that's just as wrong, just in the other direction.

I would like to see as much of the other issues as possible solved via new form builder datatypes and widgets.  You can do a surprising amount of relatively complex things this way.  For instance I built things like a multi image datatype and widget for Greenpeace (used to input images for a slideshow).

Next in desirability IMO is new modes for the form builder, with ad_form wrapping it to expose the functionality.

Bottom in desirability is writing a brand new form builder :)
