Designing forms (advanced features)

I have just started to play with your project and it seems to be a very nice and useful... :-) I am a begginer to PHP and SQL, but I can learn quick.

Here is my first suggestion:
It took me a while to understand placing the fields in the form, but finaly I got it! Anyway I was not satisfied with the only possible option to navigate through these fields by TAB key from top to down by collumns. Sometimes it is useful to have a chance to go via fields by rows. I have found out that the usefull HTML attribute to FORM - TABINDEX - is not used. So I have add a "sob_all_field_order" to the table "zzsys_object", then I have modified the form (form.php) to define custom forms with adding several (4) lines to use the variable "sob_all_field_order" as a attribute for desired TAB order...

After modification of some "system" forms now I am able to define my own TAB order in every forms :-) I can provide you with more details if you wish... ;-)

LAS0,

The good thing about nuBuilder being open source is you are free to make what ever changes you want.

But we have a philosophy that goes something like this.
