Cannot save record edited by the Chronoforms form; however same settings for CCv6 form is working.

Elitakey , March 06 at 11:28
Hello to all - here is the thing: I have successfully implemented CF6 form load in CCv6 with all current record data but
cannot get edited data saved even though I got message that record has been saved successfully.
If form is created with CCv6 form fields, the record is saving.
Save button is the same for both forms; Read function has been called in CCv6 for both forms, fields has the same defined value; Save function is the same for both forms, defined in CCv6.
What is wrong?
Hi Elita,
The best way to use Chronoforms in Connectivity is to build the form and call the form section inside a CC form view:
There is no need to call a full form unless you want to run the form "submit" event, but you can do the same thing in a CC event so there is no need to mix the 2 apps.
Best regards

Hi, Max, thank you for your reply. I know that. And that is exactly what I have done. I edited CF6 form - deleted all buttons, all Save and Read functions and defined all the fields with the value for each field like {var:read_submission.Submission.aid}, where rad_submission is the CCv6 Read function and Submission is Model.
Then I created an event in CCv6 for the form view and View where the CF6 form is called. So far so good - record loads with all the data inside, but EDITED DATA DOES NOT SAVE!
In comparison, with all the same, when I create the form in CCv6 with built-in fields, everything works fine.
by the way - {section:cf_section_name} does not work for me - it opens blank page.
I got this syntax working -
Found my problem:
Save Data function had defined Data provider {data:Model} where Model is the Model from Read data function.
To save with CF6 form, Data provider should be {data:}
So, to anybody who would like to load CF6 form in CCv6 I suggest to do following:
1. Create Read data function with Where conditions{data:id} e.g. Submission.aid:{data:aid} in my case and Select type First matching record;
2. Create Edit event in CCv6 with Read data function, e.g. {fn:read_submission}, and Form view e.g. {view:submission_form};
3. Create Save event in CCv6 With Save data function, e.g. {fn:save_submission};
4. Create Save data function e.g. save_submission with Data provider - {data:} and Update conditions{data:id}, ​
​e.g. Submission.aid:{data:aid}
5. Create views in CCv6 for form load Form with Save button view e.g. {view:edit_toolbar_save} and CF6 form load
{chronoform/section:cf_alias/cf_section_name}; Data provider here should be your Read data function, e.g. {var:read_submission}, and Event - Save.
6. Create Toolbar button, e.g. edit_toolbar_save with the Event Save and Submit button? checked.
7. Edit existing CF6 form by deleting all Read, Save, etc. events;
8. Add to form Hidden field with the ID (or aid if you use CF6 submissions table);
9. Edit all the data fields by adding Value - {var:read_submission.Submission.aid} where read_submission is the Read data function, Submission - Model, aid - field name.
In addition, I had PHP code to be executed with CF6 DB Save function. To get this working in CCv6, I created PHP function in CCv6 and added that function to Save Event.
P.S. Thank you, Max for the great tool you created. Hope this will help others to understand it better and save time.
