Provide a means to design forms from the web interface.

Form Classes Swiss Magic Data Editor

Define and edit the form Classes available in the system.

I2CE_Swiss_FormClasses

This is the root swiss node for the form classes interface. Will be associated (via the I2CE_Page_SwissMagic) to the /modules/forms/formClasses magic data node.

Functionality:

  • lists all the available form classes
    • i2xe_swiss is an itereator so you can do a foreach ($this as $name=>$swissChild)
  • allow the creation of a new form class by specifying:
    • the class name. this will the name of the child node added to magic data.
    • the class that it extends (Defaults to I2CE_Form). should be a drop down list of the available classes. You need to validate this class before you create the child magic data node

All of this children have type I2CE_Swiss_FormClass

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass

This is the the swiss node associated to each of the subclasses of I2CE_Form. Correponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass If has the following functionality:

The child 'fields' has type FormClass_Fields

I2CE_Swiss_FormClasss_Fields

Container swiss node to hold all of the fields. Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields. Functionality:

  • lists all the fields in this class
  • allow you to add a new field to this class by specifying
    • a short name for the field.
      • This will be the name $name of the child magic data node to create
    • the subclass of I2CE_FormField which implements this field
      • look at code behind sql functions to get the list of valid dorm field classes
      • the populating of the drop down for form field class should be handled i think by i2ce_swiss_formclasses_field
    • A default header

Each child of this node has type FormClass_Field

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field

This is the swiss node responsible for defining the field in a form class. Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$field. Functionality:

  • specify the 'formfield' this is (almost) the subclass of I2CE_FormField which this field takes values in.
    • Really it is the key of the key/value pairs options under /modules/forms/FORMFIELD (e.g. DATE_Y, STRING_LINE)
    • Probably want to add meta data to formfield so that the user knows DATE_Y, STRING_LINE, STRING_MLINE are supposed to do.
  • allows you to specify if this field is stored in the DB. (defaults to true)
    • use I2CE_Swiss->get/setField() $field='in_db'
  • allows you to specify if this field is required. (defaults to false
    • use I2CE_Swiss->get/setField() $field='required'
  • links to the headers menu
  • allows to specify the default values (either the fields default or default_eval)

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Headers

Specifies the headers for a form field. Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$field/headers. Functionality:

  • specify the 'default' header.
    • use get/setField() with $field = 'default'
  • specify any other named header named $name.
    • use I2CE_Swiss->get/setField() with $field = $nam

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Meta

Container node for the meta data associated to a field. Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$fields/meta.

Functionality:

  • If the form field subclass I2CE_FormField_MAPPED then links to the displays menu
  • If the form field subclass I2CE_FormField_MAPPED then links to the limits menu
  • If the form field subclass I2CE_FormField_MAPPED then links to the selectable forms menu

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Meta_SelectableForms

Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$fields/meta/form and is the list of the forms that a mapped field can take values in: Functionality:

  • list the existing valid forms (note, if there are none than the valid form is the field name itself)
  • add a valid form (NOT a form class)
    • The valid forms are those forms whose implementing form class extends I2CE_List
    • The list of available forms are accessed as keys of /modules/forms/forms

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Meta_Displays

Container node for the various displays of mapped fields. Corresponds to the magic data node. /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$fields/meta/displays.

Functionality:

  • lists any existing displays
  • allows the creation of any new display by specfiying a shortname. By default it should fill in the shortname to be 'default'

All children have type FormClass_Field_Meta_Display

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Meta_Display

Handles setting the displays for mapped fields.

NEED TO FILL IN WHAT IS VALID HERE (e.g. county:district:[region]:country)

Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$fields/meta/displays/$display.


I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Meta_Limits

Container node for the limits on various displays of mapped fields. Corresponds to the magic data node. /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$fields/meta/limitss.

Functionality:

  • lists any existing limits
  • allows the creation of any new limit by specfiying a shortname. By default it should fill in the shortname to be 'default'

All children have type FormClass_Field_Meta_Limit

I2CE_Swiss_FormClass_Field_Meta_Limit

Handles setting the limit for mapped fields.

This should funcionality should be merged with that of Swiss Magic Data -- Form Relationships#FormRelationship_Where.

Corresponds to the magic data node /modules/forms/formClasses/$formClass/fields/$fields/meta/limits/$limit.

It is used, for example when displaying the list of valid countries for a the location field of person.
