TWiki Form Field Extensions

Color wheel Extensions that define additional form field types for TWikiForms. This is in addition to the built in form field types documented in TWikiForms#FormFieldTypes.

Extension Type Description Size Value
AutocompletePlugin autocomplete screenshot-small Autocomplete input field. Start typing to get a list of items to choose from, or click on the pulldown button to see all items. Size of input field in number of characters Comma-space separated list of autocomplete options
AutocompletePlugin autocomplete+restrict Autocomplete, where input is restricted to list of autocomplete options. The value in the input field will be cleared if it does not match one of the autocomplete options. Partial input is expanded - for example if one of the options is "JavaScript" and the user typed "ja", the input field is expanded to "JavaScript" on focus loss.
AutocompletePlugin autocomplete+values Like autocomplete, allowing definition of inserted values that are different to the displayed autocomplete options. An autocomplete option is defined as value: title, where the value is the text inserted into the input field when picking the title option. For example:
| Field 9 | autocomplete+values | 3 | One, 2: Two, III: Three | Various values formats |
shows autocomplete options
but the inserted values of autocomplete options Two and Three are 2 and III, respectively.
Note: Autocomplete types can be combined: autocomplete+restrict+values
ColorPickerPlugin color screenshot-small Single-line text box and a color picker to pick a color. The color can also be typed into the text box, such as #123456.
