Introduction

Hello all,

Time for the third story of our initial UX concept for eZ Publish next User Interface. Read on!

It is about landing page and building forms.

Hi

When adding new fields (blocks, form fields) the number of them may be high. I think it's better to use modal window (like search) and have additional info and thumbnail picture for each block/form field. I would be easier for small screen devices. Drag & drop could be used for the most popular.

Another usefulness would be the icon (or just text note) indicating the object status: new draft, published, modified but not published yet.

I love the fact that you are addressing a proper form builder, which has always been lacking in eZ. Just a few comments here:

  1. Blocks (page 10) and form fields (page 11) should (could happy.gif Emoticon be filterable by a search input at the top of the list. At least for blocks I imagine the list could grow to quite a few.
  2. Do you plan to support more complex form validation (besides just required)?

Would the form fields be easily extendible? One thing is to have a good set of standard field types, another to an extendible system so that I e.g. could make a type where the input would be from pointing on a google map.

Indeed this is a must when it comes to extensibility. On an installation basis, form fields should be easily modified or extended.
