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.

More than Just Text

Mark Buelsing 0 249 Article rating: No rating

When you make an announcement on your Home page, add something more than just the text. Optimally add an image or clipart to emphasize or just beautify the text. In the least, provide a title and format it differently than the announcement text below it. 

Remember if you format your announcement title, make sure you use consistent formatting to the other content on the page. Consistent formatting = Professionalism.

Create a COVID-19 Announcements Page

Mark Buelsing 0 243 Article rating: No rating

The announcements from the Church and the Government keep coming out that affect how your church can worship together and meet. If you are putting all your announcements on your home page, it is quickly going to ruin your page layout and degrade the appearance of your site. We suggest that you move these announcements off to another page. Here is what that can look like. Read more.

Remove blank from Multiple Choice

Mark Buelsing 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Multiple Choice fields have a blank entry in the list. I find that non-entry a confusing thing and don't want it there. It is usually the first item in the select list. You can remove it with code. Put a Static Text field on the form and paste the following JS. Change the ID's

 

<script>
// delete the blank entries in the combos
document.getElementById("dnn2244RTDecision1").options[0].remove();
document.getElementById("dnn2244RTDecision2").options[0].remove();
document.getElementById("dnn2244RTDecision3").options[0].remove();
document.getElementById("dnn2244RTDecision4").options[0].remove();
document.getElementById("dnn2244RTDecision5").options[0].remove();
</script>

 

******

A CSS:3 way to do this is to add the following style:

 option:empty{ display:none;} */Removes empty Multiple choice options /*

 

Set the value of a Multiple Choice in JS

Mark Buelsing 0 207 Article rating: No rating

When you need to set the value of a Multiple Choice field from some other field's "On Change Click", this syntax works.

Multiple Choice Field Name: EnteringGrade2

Syntax: document.getElementById(form.fields.EnteringGrade2.id).selectedIndex = 0;

 

This syntax avoids using the actual field ID

The value of 0 is the default entry = "Select"

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
