No Form Entries Shown in UE's DW Edit

No Form Entries Shown in UE's DW Edit

Occasionally, I encounter a problem with a form that I have created via FB (in case it is pertinent) where I do not get the form entries listed in the Bindings panel after selecting DW Edit from within UE, that is, when I'm in the WAUE_HTML_WA_Universal_Email.php file. When I’m not in UE, I do see these entries in the Bindings panel (with its square looking icon).

I should note that I had previously used UE on a file by the same name; everything seemed fine then. And, I did delete the Universal Email entry associated with the old form in the Server Behaviors panel before generating the new form.

Does anyone know how to correct this problem? Thanks in advance.

I just ran a quick test and the form was showing in the bindings panel. here are the steps that i took:
1. create a form with form builder
2. apply UE on the same page and click the DW edit button


Are you applying UE to the same page as the form, if not you might need to add the form to the page by going to the bindings Panel and click the + and then select Form Data and select the page that contains the form.

Hi Dani

Yes, I am applying it to the same page as the form. I tried going to the Bindings panel, clicked the "+", then selected "Form Data" from the list, which in turn provided an "Add To Form" pop-up window from which I selected the page's php file. The form entries still don't show up.

Any other suggestions?

In case anyone is following this thread, I found a workaround:

After I click the "+" in Bindings tab in the Server Behaviors panel, I selected "Form Variable" instead of "Form Data" from the pop-up list, at which time I was prompted to enter a form variable name. This created a new grouping in Bindings called Form with the identified variable listed in that grouping. I then repeated this step for each variable in the form that I wanted to put in the email message.

After that, I then inserted each of these variables to the appropriate location in my email message. Rather than seeing the PHP icon that I normally would, I get information like {Form.variablename}. But this seem to have worked!
