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.

Action Form

Pop Up a Page, or a Page with a Form on it

Mark Buelsing 0 171 Article rating: No rating

If you want to pop up a page on top of the current one, add the following to the end of the querystring to remove the page skin and containers.

?dnnprintmode=true&SkinSrc=%5bG%5dSkins%2f_default%2fNo+Skin&
ContainerSrc=%5bG%5dContainers%2f_default%2fNo+Container

 

If this is a form, add the following to have the form close when it is submitted.

&afcallparentonsubmit=angridEditDone

See if a Particular Option has been Checked

Test to see if one of the checkbox options has been checked.

Say you have a checkbox field, and you want to know if a particular option has been checked. Here is the JS to do it.

Example:

Fieldname: ManagerList

Manager to test for: 33

Items currently checked: 33, 34

 

Syntax:   '[ManagerList]'.indexOf("33") != -1

This means, starting at position 0 in the string of chosen options, the position of the first occurance of "33" is not -1

 

Otherwise you could easily get

- [ManagerList] returns 33,34
- [ManagerList:JsonArray] returns ["33","34"]

Collapse the row with hidden fields

Mark Buelsing 0 154 Article rating: No rating

Setting fields to Display:none hides them but the row that they are in still takes up vertical space. When you want to collapse that space, add the following

Add this class to the hidden field: HideFormGroup

Add this bit of JS somewhere in the form:  $('.form-group-HideFormGroup').parent().css("display","none");
