Controlling the form design

On thing that going to no-table forms is much more complex css. I am having trouble controlling the preset or adjusting the post creation forms from the new Data Bridge Pages Wizard.

Can you provide any assistance generating a preset that controls the form design or how to modify the generated pages to solve the following problem.

I want to control the margin to the left of the form labels and in the case of some HTMLeditor fields, set the label to be above the editor so the editor can be the same width as the publicly viewed web page.

Here is what I get and I cannot seem to control the layout the way I could with the old DataAssist pages:



How do I move this form to the left and be able to get label "Content" above the edtor so the editor could be the fill width of this page layout (the white pace between the green border)?

Please post a url where I can view the page and then I can suggest how to update the css or the html in order to make the updates you would like.

How about a support ticket. It is all on my local server right now, but it is not a public page.

I opened up an incident for you. You can post a location for me to view it there.

Thanks Ray. Done for the night, but I will post one ASAP. It would be nice if some settings were added somewhat like sculptor to set the design of the form in the DA pages. I think the layout code is getting too complex to be slick and modern, but it becomes more problematic for generic forms.

On the admin side, the tables are easy to use.

Hi Ray,

I posted a link. All the information in the case you initiated was incorrect. I am assuming that does not matter (wrong product, reason for ticket, and problem description).

Yes... I added the incident quickly with everything going on and didn't scrutinize the options when creating it. I'll find it and take a look... probably not until tomorrow morning at this point since I have a lot on my plate at the moment.

You're busy? Really? Doing what? ;)

Hi Ray,

I may have figured it out. I can adjust the

form.Sharp_Default label.sublabel, form.Sharp_Default td.DetailsPage, form.Sharp_Default td.DetailsSublabel



width to adjust the label width, and

form.Sharp_Default div.errorGroup



to adjust the position of the fields.

I do think the layout is getting into too many elements, but I did not see any way to adjust the margin of the errorGroup item in the form creator wizard and I think that is an odd name for the element. I understand the logic (it wraps what can have an error), but it is really the inputWrapper within which an error can appear. It is a bit counter intuitive because all the elements with names related to the field have no impact on its position... I have to move the error group over.

Would I be correct in assuming that when the form builder bugs are fixed, I'd have control over this in the wizard, but just under a different name?
