Custom forms - Pagination/Section

Hello there,

Is there a simple way to add sections or pagination to a custom form? The goal is to avoid scroll when dealing with long forms.

Kind regards,

Hi Paulo,

there is way for developers. Don’t try this at home.

In custom form editor, view the source. Wrap the HTML contents that you want to appear as a section in a div and add a class “formSection” to it, something like:

// Stuff that makes up a section here

You should now be able to use the section drop-down that appears for section forms in data entry.

Hi Lars,

Is this a specific functionality of version 2.11?

Inspecting the code generated when displaying a Section Form we have

(…)

So what I didn’t figure out is how just adding

will make parameter “Filter on section” appear… doing what you said just added a new border to my tables according to css

.formSection {

  • border: 1px solid #C0C0C0;*

  • border-radius: 3px 3px 3px 3px;*

  • padding: 10px;*

}

Is this a sign that I’m not a developer J?!

Kind regards,

Paulo Grácio

Sorry seems I was a bit quick. You need to add another div with class cent and an h3 as well. So like this:

Name of section goes here

// section html here

Hi Paolo,

I tested on the demo and it worked well… Note that I have only tested on version 2.11. You can view a full example from “EPI stock” data set at the demo now.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-maintenance-dataset/viewDataEntryForm.action?dataSetId=1149441

You need to hurry as the database is reset nightly :wink:

cheers
