XDP template - json data (6.4)

tys_seyffert 22-08-2018

Hi,

I have been working on 6.2 for some years now. However I looked at 6.4 features and saw that some forms can use json as its form model. I wanted to know if this will also be possible with XDP form templates?

Thanks

Tys

Hi There,

The feature is available for Adaptive forms[1]. When you create an Adaptive form the form model can be from one of the below:

If you are using designer the data view can be created using:

So, the answer to the question would be that if you are using AF you can use the JSON to create the data binding but form can have only one Form Model selected .

Correct for designing XDP and creating the field binding you have to convert json to XML and use it further. But going forward you may explore the Functionality available on Adaptive forms side. Introduction of FDM(Form Data Model) in 6.3 peered with the Adaptive form gives you high designing and modelling capabilities. You can leverage fragments, scripting , styling and HTML rendering also with OOTB functions and yet create powerful forms easily.
