Automatic form generation from a table. - El Forum - 06-23-2009

Hi guys,

Is that possible to automatically generate forms to add/edit/delete/list table entries? As we all know, managing these forms is a pain. If I remember well, Ruby on Rails offers this functionality.

Thanks

Look in the userguide for Scaffolding. There is also a number of thirdparty solutions if you look in "Ignited code". The problem is that it always seem to be a point in development when this cannot be done automatically due to special needs...
