Hi

I have downloaded and installed the Chronoforms6 in my Joomla 3.7.1 site (PHP 7)

Could you please direct me to some tutorials on how to use it?

I have used Chronoforms5 before, but I am not clear as to how to configure similar functions in Chronoforms6.

Regards,
Anu

Hi Max,

I would like to add function calls on change, and certain basic functions like Disabled etc which were available in Chronoforms 5.

Also I would like to have 2 buttons. Each button has to perform a different function eg one to Pay offline link and another to Pay Online. How to configure this?

Thanks
Anu

Hi Anu,

The fields events have a "change" event which you can setup to trigger specific actions like "Disable" or "Enable" specific fields.

I'm not sure of the buttons functions, could you please provide more info on this ?

Max

HI Anu,

For the different payment versions I would probably use an Event Switcher in the event the form submits to - you can use that to display a different second page (or a part of the page) to handle the different payment methods.

Hi Max,

I want to create a disabled field in the form. Its not based on any event. In Chronoforms 5, we had the option to select a field's Load State as Disabled, Hidden etc. I am looking for a parallel feature in Chronoforms 6.


I have a form, which based on data entered displays calculated information in the disabled fields. Once filled, I need to give the user the choice of two payment modes Offline and Online. If Offline is selected, one event is triggered and if online is selected another event (redirected to payment gateway).

How to implement this?

Regards,
Anu

Hi Anu,

In the Extra attributes box on the Advanced tab of the element you can add disabled:disabled

Hi Anu,

In the latest update released yesterday there is a new "Disabled" toggle setting under the "Advanced" tab of the field, please check that.

Regarding the payment switching, please check the "Switch event" action, you need to set the provider to the field value {data:radio_field_name}

The "radio_field_name" is the field you use for choosing online/offline payment.

Max

Is it anywhere documented, what extra attributes are available?

And the latest I downloaded today (6.0.5) does not seem to include the "Disabled" toggle. I was hoping to see all the options that are in CF5.

Cheers

Hi Tim,

In 6.0.5 I see Load States boxes at the bottom of the Info tab in a Text Field element . . . and a Radios Group. I'm not clear what you are to put in them - anything I guess?

In the Extra Attributes box I think that you can add any HTML attribute (that is valid for that input) - for example type:color changes a Text Field to a color picker if your browser supports it. See here for a full list.

Hi,

If any non empty value is used in the load state disabled box then the field will be disabled, but you can use a var or data call like {data:param}, if "param" is not in the request then the element will not be disabled.

I updated to 6.0.5, and found the Load States in the Info tab. I tried out "disabled " and "yes", in the boxes. Both worked.

I guess, if any text is filled in the field, it will work. The condition is if the field is empty or not empty.

Thanks

Hi Anu,

Yes, you can call do a var call and return a value which is empty, in other words its dynamic.
