It allows the user to select a file from the user's computer or from the server according to the data type in the relevant form field.

  • If the data type is Blob, it allows the form editor to load files on the user's computer 
  • If the data type is string, it allows the file to be selected from the specified directory on the server, and to load a file in that directory.


 Common Features of Form Editors

Form Editors


When entering data in a field in the Netigma forms, the form editors are used depending on the type of data and/or type of entry desired. 


Form editors allow the data to be entered in the desired format and data type. Form Editor in the Column Editor is selected from the drop-down list. 


For example if a numeric data is to be entered in a field, when the TextBoxFloat editor is used, the control applied by the editor will automatically prevent the non-numeric data from being entered.
