“Form Window Designer” – First End-User Tool
March 2, 2011
“Form Window Designer” is a very simple tool for creating “Form Windows” which contain only labelled text fields.
There will be two ways of using “Form Windows” created by FWD:
1) Simple database CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete)
There will be optional database name and key fields that can be created. If these are defined, the created window will be able to manage a simple database whose records consist of the data fields.
2) Form-to-Form communication over channels
A couple of weeks ago, I built a channel communication demo called “Chat” which sent simple text messages. Form-to-Form communication uses the same foundations as Chat but sends and receives encoded data fields instead of text.
This is the first of several user-oriented tools for QuickSilver. And it is being built 100% online using only QuickSilver in the browser.
