DNN Form and List Module

DNN form and list module is a powerful tool that helps in setting up different kinds of forms and lists in a website. This is a 3rd party application that was originally named the User Defined Table (UDT) in 2009. In this article, we will provide to our DNN readers some basic functionality about the DNN form and list module and why it is such an important tool.

Note: We are assuming here that you already have an operational DotNetNuke installation on your system.

A DNN form and list module helps in generating small, mini applications such as news announcements, page comments, guest books, event registration forms, etc. It allows administrators to create module templates. One of the most vital functionality of this module is that its users can reuse configurations through this module.

We are trying to explain the functionality of this module by using following example; If we have a task to create a module for production house who save their product details on website; so it quite easy to fix the fields and create a entry and listing form according to those fields but by using this module we can give power to user's hand to choose what kind of field he/she want to store in DB or how many fields they wish to display. In below mention screen shots, we are trying to create a normal form which is used for save the information of any products. Form and List module templates are quite similar to module exports. Once you have configured this module in a page in your website, it would display as in figure 1.

Once you have configured a Form and List with columns, you can edit the configuration, modify the characteristics of a column, change or add Advanced Column Options and much more. For every form created with this module, there are four system columns are automatically created including Created by, Created at, Changed by and Changed at. All four columns are required by Form and List for tracking records. A user can add a column by clicking Add New Column as shown in the figure 2 below:

User can also add a record to your table by clicking Add New Record, and a blank entry form will display as shown in figure 3 below:

The Form and List is installed as part of the core installation of the DotNetNuke framework. If a new Form and List module is placed inside a page, users can either choose to setup a new configuration, or they can simply apply one of the templates out of the template catalog. Important functionalities of a DNN form and list module include:

  • DNN Form and List module supports its own set of Data Types including Text, Rich Text or Calculated Columns.
  • Form and List relies on Token Replace for a lot of tasks like Default Values, Filters or Calculated Column.
  • Form and List creates hidden helper columns, which help you in XSL, Calculated Columns or Filtering Data.
