Please set the button color to green and remove the "Container class".

Hi Elita,

Just use class:multiply and class:remove in the button settings and that will configure them to do a multiple or remove.

Just a suggestion - how can I get Font awesome icon instead of text for that button?

E.g. <i class="fa fa-plus-square-o"></i>

Another question - How do I configure Repeater in CF6 for DB Save?

Hi Elita,

The remove button is inside the "body" of the repeater ?

You can use the semantic icons:

I will update the FAQ below to describe the saving process:

No, the remove button is in the footer. Should it be in the "body"?
E
Elitakey
It works. By placing the remove button in the "body" area it started to work.

So. To resume:

To add the "Add" button, place the button in the Repeater Footer area, change it to Button, Add class: multiply in the Advanced Extra Attributes tab.

To add the "Remove" button, place it at the end of the Repeater Body area, change it to Button, Add class: remove in the Advanced Extra Attributes tab.

If you want to style those buttons with icons, use semantic icons with the link above. To have the icons in the center, I added code: style="display:block; margin: 0 auto;"

Dear all,
I'm trying to use a Repeater (see attachment) where I added a button with "class:multiply" and another button with "class:remove" in Advanced Extra Attributes tab, but it doesn't work.
Where I'm mistaking?

Hi Max,
I'm trying to use the repeater area in this way. I need 10 text fields, and each one should be named "squadra[n]";

I put the repeater, and configured "Data provider" as 10; in the body I put a text field in which I set these parameters:

Label => Squadra[n] (it should be good to view the number also in the label);
name => squadra[n], ID =>squadra[n]

Actually my form gets only last data I input. Where is my mistake?
Thanks

Hello, Max.
I followed your insturctions in
https://www.chronoengine.com/faqs/74-chronoforms6/5290-how-to-use-the-repeater-area.html

Further explanation on how to Save the Repeater data is needed, especially for this sentence:

The Loop Event data provider should be set to {data:Model} which is the paremt of the cloned items data sets, and the "Save data" daat provider should be set to {var:switch_action_name.row}, the "Save data" should be inside the "Body" section of the "Loop event" action.


1. How to set the DataBase for the Repeater? Should it be the separate database?
2. If Yes, how to connect the record from the main DB with that of the Repeater records for further reading? Should it be the special ID for that or what?
I mean - if, e.g there will be 3 Repeater records in the Repeater DB, for one record of Main Data base, how the data later could be retrieved for that record? Example - Main DB contain Record for one person that entered the infomation about domestic animals they have and Repeater DB has 3 records of cats names. How can I later know that this person entered those cats names?
3. Did not understand this: {data:Model} and that {var:switch_action_name.row} - how can I adjust this to my situation. If I understand corectly, Model is that i put in the Field name (Model[n][field_name]). How to interpret this: {var:switch_action_name.row}?
