Development Blog This blog will be used as a vehicle to keep interested parties abreast of changes to the Linear system. Using the RSS feed utility, we hope existing and potential clients will become more knowledgeable about our system. Launched September 21, 2005.
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.

We have worked with Greg now for about ten years. I expect we'll continue for another ten. When I need help on one of our sites I pick up the phone and call Greg. He fixes it. It is about that simple.
