Support 1

With Formativ 1.6 and earlier versions, a dynamic user interface is possible with an HTML portal or HTML dialog. You could, for instance, encode rules into a group of checkboxes using JavaScript.

Alternatively, you could divide your dialog’s logic among a series of Formativ dialogs, approximating the ‘Wizard’ user interface metaphor. For example, choices made in dialog 1 would affect whether dialogs 3 and 4 appear.

The forthcoming release of Formativ, due in early 2004, includes a new WYSIWYG form designer. In addition, the new forms make it possible to respond to user ‘events’ dynamically (as in your checkboxes example).
