When editing or creating new records, userid and password are set as must fill fields. Age only accepts numbers (this is automatic, no programming required), and email addresses are validated.

See Example 302 and Example 303 which uses the same data.

This demo also shows you Google style scrolling. In this case, this is enabled by setting

  $lens->scrollLinks = 9

which sets the number of scrolling links to 9.


Also notice that the fields FirstName/LastName and PostCode/City are on the same line in the Details Grid, and New/Edit record forms. This is configured by checking "2 Fields in 1 Row" in the column settings for PostCode.


We also have section breaks with "Misc" and "Address" using the sectionLens property.
