Problems still exist.

After having a torrid time with validation issues in previous versions that both Jason and Ray worked on with a few add on revisions one of the annoying issues still remains in the latest build and it is something that I use in most forms.

If you add one form element per line there should be no problem but in most of the forms I build this is not the case, example, asking for the persons title and name which would look better?

<input>Title</input>
<input>Name</input>

Or

<input>Title</input><input>Name</input>

So what’s the problem? Well the spry validation works fine on the first example but on the second and the spry validation text for the title field disappears. I know both Jason and Ray pointed out it was a positioning problem in code view that could be fixed with some manual intervention but considering the edit group contents panel allows you to move sets into other lines I would have thought it would also take care of positioning the spry validation messages as well.

Also if I edit it code side and later use the interface to change a form field it overwrites the changes I made code side making the whole process infuriating.

to have 2 form elements on the same line with unique spry validation, follow these steps:

1) In the Form builder wizard, edit the CSS Layout. make sure that the form is set to have 2 columns, and the width for the columns is set to half the width for the form.


2) In the Form Contents, edit the group that you would like to have the 2 elements in.

3) Create a line for the 2 elements. In that line create a set for the Title element and another set for the Name element.

4) Select the set that contains the Title Element, and set the Error message that should display, select the title element and set the validation type;

5) Select the set that contains the Name element and set the Error that should display when the name validation fails, select the Name element and set the validation type.


The key here is that the validation error message is applied to the set. so to have more than one validation error message in a line, you need to have more than one set, and the CSS needs to be configured to have a column for each set you plan to use

The gap between title and name is massive! what if this was viewed on a mobile, it would appear at first that there was no name field. It should look like the attachment

this is a limitation to the tool. for the elements to have unique spry validation, they need to be in separate columns.

could you recommend a short cut to adding fields with rounded corners? I know the css for it but didn't want it to clash with the generated code or be over written with each re-edit.

add the rounded corners css to another CSS file so that it wont be overwritten by the CSS Form builder wizard.

standard rounded corners code should be fine, it should not conflict with the CSS Sculptor CSS.
