This demonstration utilizes several new features unique to the 3.0 release of Dynamic Forms:
- New Field Type -- Data Grid
- New options for File Attachment/Upload field
- New Field Type: Rating
Data Grid Field Type
The Data Grid Field Type offers new and expanded layout options that were not previously available. Using this new feature, you can now have 'fields within a field' and obtain more information in a more compact layout, using less real estate on your page. Let's take an admin look at this field type in the image below:
Take a look at the Education field in the demo above and notice how the user options are offered in a drop down list (combo box). As illustrated in the image below, you can link this combo box to a DNN list.
File Attachment/Upload Field -- New and Improved!
The File Attachment/Upload Field Type now offers more flexibility to tailor to your own needs. As mentioned in the demo, this field type now comes with the opton to save a file with a unique name, a friendly name or the exact name. Admins can also choose to have the file stored as the full http reference or just the filename. Lastly, you now have the ability to define the upload directory of your choice.
Let's take a behind-the-scenes look at this field type:
