Pseudo EIP
« on: June 18, 2007, 11:20:03 PM »
Hi All

I want to make a pseudo eip form for the web. I've seen this on a few sites (especially erp).

It is basically a table with the rows as in a browse but each line has each value as an entry field. Like an invoice.

What I have in mind is to build this and allways add one empty line at the bottom with an add button on the line. This will then allow the user to enter a new line and add it. Or edit the other lines directly.

Each entry field should have ajax validation and update of other fields on the line.

I suspect it would actually need to be a new template - CapeSoft?

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris,

4.26 (which should go out today...) will mostly be bug fixes accumulated along the way, and some other fixes that are outstanding.

4.27 is scheduled to include EIP for the browse. However that _may_ come in stages. (For example 4.27 may just support check boxes in a browse, with 4.28 supporting entry fields and so on.)

As you point out this has the potential to get really complicated, what with validation and all, so I need to step very carefully. But EIP is definitely a useful feature that I want to add in the not too distant future.

Cheers
Bruce
