Description

Build "customization dialog" (see whiteboard photo in cvs:
jalama/docs/dev/Sep2004mtg-whiteboard/configure_entry_form_03.jpg) that is used
to customize some aspects of the form generated by the form generator.

Customizable aspects include field visibility, default value, validation
required, location etc. Dialog basically amends Drools rules before ui
generation takes place

History

#1 Updated by Matthew Brooke almost 14 years ago

Another customizable aspect might be "collapsed on start" for widgets that hold
optional and infrequently-completed values (like epiphyte and canopy in pisco
app) - see Bug #1936

#2 Updated by Matthew Brooke almost 14 years ago

To expand on the "Default Value" setting: this could include:

1) a timestamp (already implemented in XBL)

2) auto-increment field (already implemented in XBL, but needs additional
functionality, such as starting at user-defined values, and counting in
user-defined direction - like in reverse at first, then forwards after tide goes
out, for example, depending on field conditions) - see Bug #1938

3) Could be set to echo the value entered in the previous record; currently,
fields do automatically keep prev record's values, but this should be
configurable by the admin: keeping same values may be appropriate for
"metadata"-type attributes that aren't being collected (eg site, date, etc), but
not for data-type values (species found etc)
