Form-to-Form Instant Network Communication
March 5, 2011
In the image above, there are two browsers open – Safari on the left and Opera on the right.
In each of the browsers, there is a window called “Test Form” which was created with the form design tool that I have discussed in earlier posts.
At the bottom of each “Test Form” window, there are two buttons – “Send” and “Open” – and a text field with the name of a channel.
Pressing “Open” opens the communication channel; pressing “Send” sends the contents of the form to any other forms which are on the open channel.
In this test, I filled in some data in the Safari form and pressed “Send” – and the data immediately appeared in the Opera form.
I have renamed the design tool to “QuickForms” and it will be increasingly used to build both tools and applications.
