Hi there listers,
I have to set up a rather complex 2 column form with country/state
drop-down (similar to "Front End User Registration" extension) and other
select options with multiple choice possibilites.
I just had a look at the over 2000 lines of code in
class.tx_srfeuserregister_pi1.php and have to admin that it looks pretty
I saw a couple of interesting extensions, e.g. "CWT Frontend Edit" which
has some very nice features
- Automatic rendering of Input, Textarea, Select, Password and File types.
- Automatic input validation (from TCA) for Input, Textarea, Select,
Password and File types.
- Additional input validation possible (email, atLeast, atMost ...) for
Input, Textarea, Select, Password and File types.
Unfortunately this extension seems to be limited to Input, Textarea,
Select, Password and File types.
May I ask for some statements on how to go about creating such a complex
form (not a mail form, but a form to be saved in the database). Writing
a new extension is very time consuming and therefore please let me know
if there is a shortcut to such an html standard job.
