Library Form

Form Definition for Library Application


  • Each row in the table below defines a field in the resulting Wiki form.
    • These fields must also match any HTML data entry or search forms.

  • Be sure to use a unique and unambiguous name for each field.
    • Avoid using field names that collide with those in another form!
    • A naming convention with a common prefix is recommended.

  • Use WikiWord format for each field Name. You may "space out" the name.

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

  • Do not press "return" in any textarea fields when adding data to this table. All fields should contain one unbroken line of text.

  • Note that menu items (for type select) can be stored on another page (where the page name must match the field name).

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 "size" defines how much to show,
      e.g. how many menu items are visible at once or how many checkboxes in a row
  • 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 own, named by the field name.
      • If you want a menu to be empty initially, begin the list with a comma
    • For other types, ignore the "values" field
  • Tooltip Message
    • optional
    • This should be a short descriptive phrase
  • Attributes
    • optional
    • An attribute H indicates that this field should not be shown in view mode.
    • An attribute M indicates that this field is mandatory.

See TWiki.TWikiForms#Defining_a_Form_Template for additional documentation.

  • If you change the Name on any row below, all data values for that field will be lost for any existing pages using this form!

  • If you add a field (row) to this table, be sure to update any related forms (e.g. Library Page Create) as well.
