"On-The-Fly Forms"

I was just using UR to compare SSD drives on
pricewatch when it occurred to me that I wanted a
faster way to quickly get some custom colums to sort by
for a quick temporary job. (Comparing a few numbers
regarding SSD read/write sped , cap size, and price, etc

I imagined that the best way to do that would be to let
the user build a new form in-line, and even allow in-line
creation of new attributes.

I've created custom forms before, but it seemed
daunting to go hunting for that feature (haven't used it
in ages), and I didn't really event want the attributes to
hang around and pollute the global namespace anyway.


click on the vote for fun, amusement and profit_?

see the attached mockup using my "book" Form. Initially
the drop downs would contain entries like "<String>",
"<Time>", "<Date>", etc. Then as soon as the user
clicks to set the Type it morphs to display an input
control for that type. Right-clicking on the input control
provides a context-menu to re-select the type, delete
the row, etc.

PS there probably needs to be a way to insert/remove
spacers like in regular forms... maybe just some way to
have a handle you can drag horizontally to stretch

PPS would be nice to have a feature like this... I didn't
really get any mileage out of the last paid upgrade.. a
few nice things no doubt but nothing *really* cool.

I just discovered that you can't even edit/add Attributes
from the existing Form dialog... what a drag gotta go to
2 places. OK. I'll do it....

drag on.. no problem, won't bother posting this nag...



now I have to go edit Templates too?? Dang,
I never remember making new form stuff as being this
hard... plus everything is permanent.. what a drag to go
back through and clean it out... (perhaps a way to have
a "junk" items category that can be filtered/unfiltered?)
