Step 3. Add Form on the Page

Now, we will add a form that will show the details of the book selected in the grid.

The form will have the following controls:

  • 3 text fields: "Name", "Quantity" and "Price".
  • a button "Submit".

Note, for correct running the ids of the form's fields must correspond to the ids of the grid's columns.

To create a form on the page:
  1. Place a div container on the page and specify the form's width and height in the 'style' attribute:

    "index.html" file

        <title>dhtmlxForm. Server side</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="codebase/dhtmlx.css">
        <script src="codebase/dhtmlx.js"></script>
        <div id="mygrid_container" style="width:600px;height:160px;float:left;">
        <div id="myform_container" style="width:350px;height:160px;"></div> </head>
  2. Specify the controls and their position in the form:

    "index.html" file

    formData = [
        {type:"fieldset",  offsetTop:0, label:"Edit Form", width:253, list:[
            {type:"input",  name:"title",    label:"Name",     offsetTop:13, 
            {type:"input",  name:"quantity", label:"Quantity", offsetTop:7, 
            {type:"input",  name:"price",    label:"Price",    offsetTop:7, 
            {type:"button", name:"save",     value:"Submit",   offsetTop:18}
  3. Call the dhtmlXForm() method to create the form with the specified controls on the page:

    "index.html" file

    var myform = new dhtmlXForm("myform_container",formData);   //object constructor
