New Form Fields

May 07, 2012 | 10:36 AM

Added several new field types to Linear's form building interface. By selecting these new field types, the system will "validate" the form while the respondent is entering data - they'll get an immediate response if their entered data is in conflict with the form requirements.

Here is a quick list of the new form controls:
  • Date fields: The form will produce a calendar overlay where the respondent may click on a date. Only dates may be entered.

  • Numeric: This produces a field which will only accept numeric values.

  • Email This produces a field which will only accept valid email addresses.

  • Phone This produces a field which will only accept valid format telephone numbers (10 digits).

  • Zip This produces a field which will only accept valid zip codes (5 digits).

  • URL This produces a field which will only accept valid internet URLS (i.e. "http://www.linearpublishing.com").
Additionally we added "minimum" character controls to the standard fields - this compliments the existing "Maximum" character controls.

smiley pete"Linear publishing has provided a turnkey solution for Mile High Newspapers that far exceeds anything that we could have accomplished on our own. While the capabilities of the system are impressive, what I have found most useful is Linear's willingness to implement new features and its ability to support the ones it has. The Linear system has so many features, that one newspaper will never use them all. I have looked at other newspaper content management systems, but have yet to find one that matches Linear's price, tech support and feature set."
