Dataassist 3 ?

Is there a timeline for the release of DA3 yet ?

I find the table based forms generated by the DA2 wizard aren't very appealing, so I frequently end up discarding the CSS and tables and use CSS table free form markup.

If the DA3 wizard were to help do this for me, it would save me a lot of time

DataAssist 3 is currently in development, but I do not have a time frame for when it will be available, nor do i have a feature list.

Thanks Jason, in the meantime I will put table free css markup on my wishlist

While I agree that we should be using css in favor of tables, some items (tabular data, like data assist lists) it is still valid to display them in tables.

Mostly however, I would like to see cleaner structure in the layout of forms. The forms generated by form builder, and security assist 2, while technically css forms, are even more bloated code wise than tables, with all sorts or wrapping and nested divs and span tags.

I would like to see something with cleaner code, and maybe have the code based on form lables, and inputs, perhaps putting elements in unordered lists.

I have a few times tried to edit a form generated by form builder by hand in code view, and quickly get lost in the excess divs and spans.

What do other folks think?

I agree the forms are currently far to bloated

i agree

for simple forms, i just use an ordered list with css, the code is really neat and tidy, and the forms are clean and attractive.
