Previewing improvements to Continuous Editable Forms in Morfik 3
Recently a developer on our blog site made the following comment: “I’ve been watching and trialing Morfik for about a year now. I still can’t use it because of one simple thing. You haven’t created a properly functioning, bug free, good user experience continuous editable form.”
Well, I am about to share with you something that will completely change that!
In Morfik 3 the implementation of Continuous Editable Forms is dramatically enhanced. In fact it will have features of both Continuous and Single Forms; content will be displayed like Continuous Forms but will have the editing capabilities of Single Forms! The best way to get a feel for the improvements in performance and usability is to have a look at the following Continuous Editable Forms demo:
Another major enhancement in Morfik 3 is the ability to customize the way a band appears and functions when in edit mode. This will open up a number of interesting possibilities. As well as a greater level of control over the appearance of edit controls, you can define a custom layout to better accommodate advanced editing tasks. For example, you can edit fields that are not visible in the Continuous Form normally.
In Morfik 3, a new band for Continuous Editable Forms is automatically created at design time which will allow for customization of the Detail band in edit mode. The content of this band is synchronized with the content on the Detail band. For example, if you have a TextLabel linked to the field “Category”, the IDE will create a TextEdit control in the new band that is linked to the same field.
We are committed to making Continuous Forms the preferred model for presenting tabular data on the web, and with Morfik 3, I feel we are coming a step closer to delivering on this promise.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
