Can you add a DataView field to a Create Form?

Can you add a DataView field to a Create Form in the latest version? My subscription expired on version 8.5.5. so I can’t test this and the examples only show Edit Forms. This would be a factor in my decision to renew. Thanks

  • Mike,

    Yes, you can add a DataView field in createForm1.

    No, you will not be able to enter data since the record has not been posted yet. DataView fields are not displayed in "New" mode.

    The good news is that we are changing this very soon. DataView fields will be rendered "inline" starting with release 8.5.12.0.  


    Presently, lists of records are displayed either as standalone infinite lists of records or as "summary" views with paging. Starting with release 8.5.12.0 we are introducing new "inline" display for lists of records. "Inline" rows of DataView fields will be rendered as standard input controls with paging and will not require for the rows to be physically present on the server. Gird/List/Cards view styles will supported.

    Release 8.5.11.0 is due out in the next few days. This release brings "Wizard" presentation style. It is now possible to break the fields of a long record into multiple groups with Next/Prev/Finish navigation between categories of forms.

    "Inline" editing will also make it possible to display and enter multiple rows of DataView fields in wizards and standard forms. The collected data will be posted in a scope of a single transaction. You can read about upcoming features at http://codeontime.com/roadmap. The availability of these features is October 2016.
