    Widget News! Issue 4 June 26 2014

    Asked by TitusN on June 26, 2014 at 03:18 PM

    We're excited to showcase the power of Form Widgets in our Fourth Issue of Widget News! 

    While most form users are careful when filling out web forms to ensure that they provide accurate information, everyone likes forms they can fill out easily and quickly. 

    In some cases, inaccurate results are filled out and submitted, despite the best intentions of the form user.   

    To help your users along, form widgets are designed with your form user in mind; providing tools to help them provide accurate information with ease and speed.

     

    Some of our widgets are so powerful, that they harness a global library of data like maps, addresses and visually assistive layouts; quickly helping your form users along as they complete the form. 

    Visit our Widget Gallery and see how you can make your form user's experience easier and enjoyable.

    Here are our featured widgets this week:   

    According to Third Door Media*, three out of ten people who use your form will do it on a mobile device. Many webmasters design their websites with PC's, Mac's and most Mobile devices in mind. 

    This widget automatically resizes your form to fit a mobile screen, which allows anyone with a mobile device to use your form comfortably.

    Present the "Yes / No" Questions on your form as beautiful toggle switches. Based on the Bootstrap Switch Source Code**, the widget is not only pretty, but responds in a smooth animation as the answer is changed.

    Vertical space is precious - much like real estate - every square footage must be optimized. 

    This widget adds a clever edition to your form - folding away check-box options in a drop-down field.  

    So if you have a long list of options and very little space - give this widget a try

    *****

    Sometimes its important to let your form users know how many responses the form has received. 

    This widget  returns a total of how many times the form has been submitted - allowing you to update your users on the activity of the form. 

    Click here to see how it works. 

    This widget will generate a random code each time the form is opened. 

    It is essential for forms that need to be identified uniquely for each submission. 

    The widget also allows you to define the combination of numbers, symbols and letters to be used in the generated code.

    *****

    This widget is used to make sure that the value entered is accurate before the form is submitted. 

    It generates two entry boxes which are used to compare entered values, and should the entries differ, the widget will inform the user to enter the value again. 

    This is a proven method to ensure that the values entered on your form are accurate.

    Tabs are easily a global standard for multi-page navigation on web pages. 

    This widget harnesses this capability for your form.

    As long as you have more than one page on your form, you can add tabs that will help users know where they are, and allow them to easily skip from page to page.

    *****

    This widget can be summed up in four words: fill-in-the-blanks. 

    Its a cool way to present your form as part of a narration.

    It gives your users hints on possible contextual answers, and can be used on evaluation forms, online tests among lots of other uses. Click here to add the widget to your form. 

     

    That's what we had for you this week, as always, we work hard to create and improve each widget to meet your needs.
