Basic form style – form footer

In the last post I showed you how to change the basic form header style. In this post I will return to the same form and change its footer style as well.

Just so you remember – this is what the basic form looked like after I changed its header:


in order to change the form footer I will open the 'style' window from the 'form settings' again.

3. Changing the footer.
The footer contains the background and footer buttons.
The footer settings that may be changed are:

Footer Background
Background Color: a list of colors (gray is the default)

Footer Buttons
fornt family: a list of fonts (arial is the default)
font color: a list of colors (black is the default)
font size:  an array of sizes starting at 8px to 20px (14px is default)

 I changed the the footer settings as follows:
Footer Background
Background Color: green

Footer Buttons
fornt family: tahoma
font color: black (did not change it)
font size:  14px (did not change it)
Font weight: normal (did not change it)

the result of this change looks like this:

Basic form style – form header

The basic form style, in its former version, was simple and could not be changed.
Since the new version was launched you can change the design: font style, backgrounds and border.
Following is an example of how you can change the basic form header style:

1. Default look
The following screenshot displays a basic survey form (which shows each question separately) in its default design: a gray header and footer, black fonts and rounded border.

2. Style window (in the form settings)
In this screenshot you can see the style window, in which you can change the sections of the published form. The window is divided into the form settings you can change: header, footer, form body and border.


3. Changing the header.
The header contains the form name, a description, which appears below it and a background.
The header settings that may be changed are:

Header form name
fornt family: a list of fonts (arial is the default)
font color: a list of colors (black is the default)
font size:  an array of sizes starting at 8px to 20px (16px is default)
Font weight: a selection between normal, bold and bolder (bold is default)

Header Form Description
fornt family: a list of fonts (arial is the default)
font color: a list of colors (black is the default)
font size:  an array of sizes starting at 8px to 20px (12px is default)
Font weight: a selection between normal, bold and bolder (normal is default)

Header Background
Background Color: a list of colors (gray is the default)

4. I changed the the header settings as follows:
Header form name
fornt family:  Tahoma
font color: white
font size:  18px
Font weight: bold
Header Form Description
fornt family: tahoma
font color: white
font size:  16
Font weight: normal

Header Background
Background Color: orange

the result of this change looks like this:

GMT time fix

we have issued a fix to the "time zone" field which is set by the manager  in the "edit your preferences" page. This detail appears in the data entry emails and is now calculated correctly, showing the time someone filled in data in your form according to the GMT you filled in.

make a form for your blog

If you have a blog you will surely want to make contact with your online visitors. You want them to keep visiting your blog, following your posts and so on. To do this you will need to publish interesting posts, of course, but you will also need to provide your users with a way to contact you (via contact form or support form, for example). I you make a form for your blog will add credibility to it, showing there is a real person behind it that can be reached. It can also lead to sales, problem solution, feedback and so on.
to make a form for your blog yourself you can use a form builder. In the form builder you can add the fields you want (for example "name", "email", "subject" and "description"). After the fields are added you can select and move them around. Place them where you want. You can use a grid and alignment tools to make the elements aligned or move them freely with the mouse or arrow keys.
Once everything is in place you will need to define each field. Input elements will have to be given a name (caption) and tab index number; label will need to have a text.
When you finish this you can save, publish the form and use it in your site.

Free on line forms

Usually adding on line forms to your website is costly. You need to hire a programmer to do the job (unless you are a programmer yourself…) .
one way to cut the costs is to forget about the whole thing…the other is to use free on line forms – widgets.
FormLogix provides readymade free on line forms in the form of gadgets. These gadgets are really simple to add. You only need to choose the one you want, choose its background color and enter your email address. A generated code will immediately appear and you will only need to insert it to your webpage. Once someone fills in your free on line forms you will automatically receive a new entry email containing the data entered. The form filler will receive a carbon copy of the data he filled as well.

Contact Web Forms

The most common web forms are contact web forms. They are basic forms for anyone who owns a website or blog and wants to get in touch with his users. The contact web forms usually consist of the following fields: name, email and the message.
Some contact web forms have more fields in them, such as: telephone number, contact purpose or subject title and so on.

Form owners can rest assured that users who need to contact them can do so using the contact web forms. They've opened a communication channel which is good for their credibility and site maintenance.
On the user end it is important to know that you can contact the site owners if needed. Users often have questions and encounter technical issues that need help. The contact web forms are a great solution for them.

With FormLogix form builder you can create a large variety of contact web forms: small ones with few fields, bigger ones with many fields, regular web forms, conditional web forms, simple looking forms and designed forms.

New Version Features - Clone

In order to create the pool of questions in the online basic form builder you need to add questions one by one. Specifying which is a textbox and which is a radio button, which is mandatory and which has a tooltip...
Speeding this operation up is possible by cloning existing questions - this feature is now available in the new version. All you need to do is select a question and press on the "clone" icon.

New Version Features - Display as single group

In the previous version, when using our online form builder you could create a basic form that could only be displayed in a continues way  (each question or group at a time), having to navigate between them using the 'next' and 'previous' buttons.
In this new version we have added the ability to display all questions to the form filler  in one single list (with a scroll if needed), allowing the user to easily and quickly fill in all the data in one page.
This feature is called "display as single group" and it is located in the "form settings". It is turned on by default and you may choose not to use it by simply turning off the checkbox.
Please note that if you choose to create a conditional form, and use the 'flow' to do so you must turn the "Display as signle group" option off. This is because a conditional form is dynamic, depending on the form filler's answers thus cannot predict all the questions in advance to display them together.

New Version Features - Tooltip Field

In the Basic Form Builder it is really simple to create a new form. All you need to do is create a pool of questions and if you wish (it is not mandatory) you can also add conditioning to them by creating a flow.
Creating a flow requires the simple action of adding questions.
Once you add a question you will need to provide a question text (such as: what is your name?), question type (for example, a textbox, that collects alpha numeric values) and so on.
The tooltip is a new field in this window, which allows the form owner to add a description/detail/explanation his question.
If a tooltip text is entered for a specific question it will be displayed in the published form when the form filler clicks on the question mark, displayed right after the question.

New Version Features - 2 more question types

In this new version, which focuses on the basic form builder, 2 new question types have been added :
1. the date picker.
2. the vertical radio button.

Date Picker
The date picker allows you to add a calendar element into your form. once a form filler clicks on the textbox to fill it in a calendar appears and all he needs to do is pick the date.

Vertical Radio Button
The vertical radio button was needed since a horizontal radio button did not suit cases where the options are many and long. there was simply not enough space on the screen for it. So the vertical radio button was a great solution for it.
