Editing the block form

Permalink Browser Info Environment
On these custom blocks, I often go back and add notes to the setup form to explain the choices.

However the edit/reload/review cycle is even more laborious with entering/exiting edit mode, reloading the page, etc.

Is there a way to display the form as a stand-alone page that can simply be re-loaded? Maybe through some dashboard URL or something, where C5_Execute would be defined?

Does that make sense?

(maybe a thought for future updates, there should be a field on each item to allow notes input, and would output in the form with a fa question icon linked to a bootstrap collapsible panel under / beside each form label)

Awesome package!

Hi there,

Not sure what you mean with this:

"Is there a way to display the form as a stand-alone page that can simply be re-loaded? Maybe through some dashboard URL or something, where C5_Execute would be defined?"

Is this the same as the questionmark with extra information or... Perhaps you have a working example you could share? I am open to each and every idea/feature request, so if it makes sense and will be useful for you, others and me, I will gladly implement it.

Kind regards,

Ramon

I was talking about making changes to the form.php so that there can be a note associated to an option.

Never mind my question about viewing the form. That was about seeing changes update in the browser during editing, I figured out I don't have to reload the page, I just have to re-open the block edit form.

Maybe it was block designer, on an earlier site, or Jordan's block maker in 5.6, but at some point I had added these notes (see screenshot attached) to a block form using Bootstrap's collapse, fired from a simple icon question. Or maybe I was on Foundation then... I tried that briefly in this one (with Bootstrap), but opening the panel caused the block to submit, so I just went with simple paragraphs instead of trying to figure out what the deal with that was.

It'd be neat if we could add notes or tips to a field during the block configuration, and I think those would initially be hidden in the form view, but could be shown. If you get bored...

I'm just muddling through. I love being able to blockify arrangements though, this is awesome.

OK, a question mark which you can click which slides down the note belonging to a field. Got it. Will put it on my todo-list. I have a lot of stuff to do you can imagine haha, so I will let you know when I got to it. Probably this note will be in a "info" block? -http://getbootstrap.com/components/#callout-alerts-no-default... (the blue one I mean)

Kind regards,

Ramon

You got it. Info block would be great, next time you get around to updating the package.

Thanks!

I introduced this in the latest version of Block Designer (be sure to update Pro-version too).

It's slightly different to how I mentioned it earlier, it complies more to concrete5 standards on how it's made now!

Kind regards,

Ramon
