Description

closed bug 1106 and opened this one to update it.
-------------------------------------------------

for data forms, need mechanism to show/hide relevant metadata, such as type,
units, range etc.

Suggestions were:

1) use existing "description" and "example" labels to display this data, and add
a button to container to show/hide all these at once (already implemented,
except for toggle on/off button. just need to populate labels using rules)

2) show/hide automatically for each individual widget, as focus moves (would
make UI fields move up & down, though)

3) click on label to get popup or replacement screen showing this metadata
(although Mark p preferred the idea of seeing all values at the same time - not
having to click individually. But matt pointed out that the user woudl become
expert pretty quickly, so might need reminding only about the occasional field)

4) show adjacent to each input field, maybe on right side
