custom joomla form FIELDS

Vote your Favourite Feature Suggestions!

6 years 1 month ago - 6 years 1 month ago #618 by Pete

I think a lot of us desperately need the ability to add our own custom joomla form FIELDS.

It sounds complex, but I think I have a way to make it **incredibly easy** for you to add..

Just allow us to setup the FIELD (name,view etc) as usual and select a field type of USERCUSTOM.

This is the cool bit - When USERCUSTOM is selected, we then see a textbox into which we can paste our FORM XML code directly.. thus giving us the needed output in the final generated XML form. - No other parameters needed :)

This would be my biggest issue with component-creator, and would stop me needing to add XML override plugins and such to override the XML code in real-time (making the site slightly slower of course..)

I am pretty sure it would be the easiest FIELD you have ever added :)  And it would work as a stopgap solution for us while we wait for full support of new Joomla FIELDS like 'repeatable' and such..

Cheers,
Pete

Hi Pete

Thank you for your feedback. I've created a new thread with your suggestion. Let's see if it gets more votes and we will consider how to stick it in our development roadmap.

Best regards

Is this something I can pay to be added ?

I don't think this voting system is working at all.. It *seems* like a fairly easy change codewise, and I need it asap :)

It will answer many issues people have with fields that are not yet implemented (like repeatable etc)..

Thanks,
Pete

I have no idea how to 'vote' for this feature - I don't see a poll attached to this topic/thread - but I've liked, favored and followed this thread - hope that counts.
I'd have to agree with Pete, I don't think that however you're expecting people to vote for features is working.
In fact, I wouldn't have even known about this had Pete not mentioned this on a thread that I posted.

Anyway ... I'd second Pete's comments. Having this custom type would solve a TON of issues for me and would make Component Creator much more useful.

Hi there

Of course votes help. There are around 30 features on our roadmap that comes from this forum. The interest shown from other users for a feature request is a plus (but not the only reason) for us to develop it. It happened with some fields, the database updater, some foreign key improvements, component options, the module creator and many other improvements and feature additions.

We are still working in a public way of presenting the Roadmap, please stay tunned.

Hi Andres,

You may have missed my earlier post..

"Is this something I can pay to be added ?" (if it will speed things up ?)

Thanks,
Pete
