email form creation issue

Hi

I have done this hundreds of time before so i know it works, but now it doesnt. I just installed databridge 1.2 on DW CS6, Windows 7
I click on create email message, enter name and email and all the other goodies. Than i uncheck the "manage my email body from file" and click the pencil icon. The window for the mesasage body editor opens. I click on the lightnig bolt on the bottom, select the first form field, it shows up in the editor. I hit enter, my cursoir is under the the code for the first form field

<?php echo((isset($_POST["name"]))?$_POST["name"]:"") ?>

than i click on the lightning bolt and select the second form field which should be added underneath the first, however it replaces the first. I can only make ONE line of code show up. Every new selection will replace the previous. Help ???

I have done this hundreds of times...

after you hit enter, try typing some static text, select that text, then go to the bindings panel, select the new binding and click the insert button at the bottom right of the bindings window.

I though you where using the DW Edit icon, I missed that you where using the pencil icon to create a text based email.


This is a bug using the pencil icon, you will need to copy the code for the name column, and maul create the code for addition bindings,

for exmple:
<?php echo((isset($_POST["name"]))?$_POST["name"]:"") ?>
<?php echo((isset($_POST["title"]))?$_POST["title"]:"") ?>
<?php echo((isset($_POST["company"]))?$_POST["company"]:"") ?>
<?php echo((isset($_POST["phone"]))?$_POST["phone"]:"") ?>
<?php echo((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"") ?>
<?php echo((isset($_POST["location"]))?$_POST["location"]:"") ?>

Not yet, it should be fixed in the next update.

i have a form with 35 fields, checkboxes and radio buttons, what is the best way to get this done without having to manually type in the form fields names in 2 places for 35 fields (70 values)

At this time there is not another way except to manually type the element names.

actually, you could click the lightning bolt, select an element, copy the code that it generates

click the lightning bolt again and select an element, paste the previously copied code after the new code, then select all the code again and rinse and repeat.

or have another text editor open.

elect an element, copy its code, paste it to the text editor. rinse and repeat for all elements, then select the entire code and paste it back into the UE window.
