Set regular Expression input type
I would like to be able to set the input type on regular expression element when using the custom regular expression. This is important for mobile devices to automatically bring up the proper keyboard on click of the element. I'm changing the type after export so at this point I do have a work around but S-Drive users won't.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

New to CoffeeCup HTML Web Form Builder. I tested it thoroughly before buying. It didn't tick all of the requirements boxes, but ticked more than the others :)

Wishlist:
- The promised "Coming Soon" multi-page forms: After more than 2 years, it's status should now be upgraded to imminent or hopefully available ;)
- Fieldsets: a nice way of grouping fields into logical components, especially complex forms with a way for the "Show element" display rules to point to fieldsets rather than fields.
- Hidden fields: via the "hidden" input tag, or via CSS.
- An alternative captcha to reCaptcha: This spambot prevention should be totally self contained for security reasons (yes, regex's exist, but ...)
- Export to a network mapped drive: All my other programs are happy with my mapped drives, only CoffeeCup refuses to even see it.
- Datetime picker: As opposed to Date picker with no time. There are a few lovely no frill open source examples available.
- a "Clear Upload" field button or mechanism: To be used if the user tries attaching a file that is too large.

Those are the crosses and some are probably unique requirements, but I dare dream. The above needs manual hacking to create a usable solution. If I make a change, I have to re-upload, re-hack etc...

I'll not spam the forums with all the ticks as upon evaluating as I'd be seen as a rogue CC plant, but there are many. And I evaluated many packages prior to buying. Good job to the CC team on a lovely product!

Yes that would be fantastic!! I have some forms that are a mile long! I would be nice to have a way to do multi-page forms. And make the popups responsive while your at it :)

When configuring the message for the confirm options and using "redirect to another URL," it would be great if the form data passed so that it can be used that page.
Did you know that Web Form Builder can be used for both simple and complicated forms and that it's not limited to the default fonts and buttons? Take a look at a form we developed for WindowTinting.com.

Please can we have relative URLs work when using 'redirect to another URL' as the confirmation choice?

- It would make complex network set ups much easier to manage and also make local design less hassle to deploy!

...Oh, and it's important that the $session variables still stay alive, like the do with absolute URLs.

that would make things great. Thank you!

Rob,
I try this.
On the form.cfg.php alter this. Mine was around the line 88
"gotopage" : "http://mydomain.com/mycustomredirect.php",

I didn't test

Thanks Eric,

I just tried it. Unfortunately it seems that line simply reflects whatever is in the 'redirect to another url' box in the GUI. Changing it has the same effect in either place.

So for now I'm going to use the redirect to custom HTML and...

<html>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0;/MyForm/MyConfirmPage.php/">
</html>

as a work around. That works with relative URLs, and you don't lose the $Session.

Rob.

It would be nice to assign custom classes to title and plain text elements.

I would like to see a texting element. I had the need for a non email notification when a form was submitted.
I added a few lines to the formcontroller.cls.php to get what I wanted and you can test it. You'll need to know who your carrier is so you can look up their SMS address. I have a reference list on the form for you to find the correct one. You'll also need to know your own phone number.:lol:
