The TWikiForms and FormattedSearch can be used to build database applications, e.g. TWikiApplication. A TWiki form defines a database table, a topic with a form is a table row, or a record.

The question was raised in Support.NavigatingBetweenFormInstances if it is possible to edit a whole set of records at once. This sounds like a useful feature.

This functionality could be done with a new Plugin. Hurry, this could be the Plugin number 100 smile (we have now 99 Plugins)

It could be done in a similar way to how the EditTablePlugin works. The table with edit fields could be composed by a FormattedSearch, showing all form fields in edit mode. The save action would trigger the update of all records (topics).
