Action Form Notes

Action Form is a module developed by DNNSharp.com for the DNN Content Management System and Development Platform. The developers at LetItShine.biz have used the Action Form module for countless projects and solutions for a number of years. The following is an modest collection of notes that we have started to record about techniques to take advantage of the strengths of this module. We record this here not to become a secondary help system for Action Form users or DNNSharp. But if you can find something here that helps you, that makes us happy too.

Push a Grid Selection to a Form

Mark Buelsing 0 22 Article rating: No rating

You can pop up a grid that will display records to choose from and then take the values from the chosen row and put them into the fiels on the form. This is a multiple column drop-down list box.

(Something that I have asked for in the past)

Use the following JS to move the field data from the grid to the form

/* Insert the module id of your FORM in the line below */

var module = '#dnn458root';

 

/* Use your form field names on the left side, and values from your grid row on the right */

angular.element($(module)).scope().form.fields.FirstName.value = '[FirstName]';

angular.element($(module)).scope().form.fields.LastName.value = '[LastName]';

angular.element($(module)).scope().form.fields.Email.value = '[Email]';

/* Trigger the form to update by applying the field changes */

angular.element($(module)).scope().$apply();

See a nice video that demonstrates building the popup components here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hw_zY1Vdp14&list=PL67RlTAxc73HwiL13W1nvYZ_Wgb2jhWwd&index=4

Welcome Photographers!

We would like to make connections with amateur photographers who would like to see their beautiful images used on the Internet.

If you are interested, leave your name and email and we'll contact you when a particular photo is needed for one of our website projects. If you have a photo that fits the need, then send it to us. At the very least, you will get credit for the photo. Some projects will pay for your photo. It is an opportunity to get your work published!

Thank you
