Updateable Web Page View Fields

From SmartWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This code can be used in the field type of 'Web page view' to allow for user to enter data into the form which will be 
updated on their records on the system. Currently this function is only available for the custom fields and not the standard
fields. The following sample code is the format in which this web page view should be in order to be accessible by the user.

Sample Code


<input type=text name='obj.fd_name' value="@name@">
<input type=text name='obj.cf_18168' value="@#18168#@">
<input type=submit value="Save">


Breakdown of the syntax

[@formstart@] : Mandatory, indicates start of a updatable form, only one form can exist on a web page field
[@formsubmitpage=page_will_be_redirected_after_save@] : Optional, what page will be redirected after save, stays on the same page if this tag is missing. Typically, a confirmation page on SmartFolder will be used.
[@formend@] : Mandatory, indicates end of a updatable form.
<input type=text name='obj.fd_name' value="@name@"> or <input type=text name='obj.cf_18168' value="@#18168#@">

The @name@ and @#18168#@ are just typical web page view variable syntax, this will prepopulate the existing values into the field. The obj.fd_name and obj.cf_18168 instructs which field to store the value in. Standard fields start with obj.fd_ while custom fields start with obj.cf_. For the custom fields use the field id number to address the field.

Displaying Checkbox field

To display a Checkbox inside an updateable webpage view field use the following syntax:

<input type=hidden value="" name='obj.cf_fieldid'>
<input type='checkbox' onclick="onlyonechecked(this)" name='obj.cf_fieldid' value='value of field' @checkbox('fieldid','value of field')@>
  • You must include a hidden object with the same name as the check box object, directly prior to the checkbox object.


<tr><td><input type=hidden value="" name='obj.cf_12345'>
   <input type='checkbox' onclick="onlyonechecked(this)" name='obj.cf_12345' value='Financial' @checkbox('12345','Financial')@>Financial
