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.

corydonI've had a great experience with Linear Publishing. The system was easy to learn, and Greg and his staff are always available to answer any questions I may have.

Our readers are apparently liking the results, too, because our visits to the web site have tripled this year.
