users_Profile

I've added 5 new fields to the users_registration page and database, seems to be working fine. Now I need to update the users_profile page to reflect the extra fields I've added. I'm not sure of the steps to hookup the fields to the database to display and update the user info?

I assume you have database which allowed you to make the update on the insert page.

You should be able to make the same changes on the update page. Basically double click the DataAssist Update Server Behavior from the Server Behaviors panel and bind the new columns in your database to the new input fields you have on your page.

I subscribe to all the extensions.

I used DataAssist2 just like I did on the user_registration page but when the user_profile form is submitted the information is updating in the database but it then does not display on the users_profile page in the newly added fields?

These are the steps I took:
Doubled clicked on the Update Record (users)
The first window "General Configuration" I make no changes,
press next,
select one of the newly added fields,
select the lightning bolt,
a server entity window opens with about 6 different choices, I choose WAATKUpdateForm and selected the new column I added to the database. So after saving and uploading, when logging in as a user and filling in the new fields, when submitted the fields will update the database, but on the user_profile page it shows my newly created fields as blank. So what am I missing to get those fields to show the information from the database like the rest of the fields on that page?

I have error reporting on and get no errors.

OK, to update your profile page:

1. open your profile page
2. open the bindings panel in DW (Window -> Bindings)
3. in the Bindings Panel expand the record set
4. you should see the new columns that you have added to your table
5. drag each of the new column to your page

this should update your profile page to display the new columns.

This is all new to me, maybe I'm using the wrong words for terms.
Drag them where on the page? Are these suppose to to be the 'values' of the form fields I added?
I'll give that a try.

Dragging to the 'value' worked for the the text fields and for textarea <textarea>dragging here</textarea>.
Thanks for your help.
