Edit Grids allow users to replicate a table like structure when it comes to the capture and display of form data. Users can add multiple components inside the Edit Grid. Additionally, any number of grids can be added within a form, which is especially useful when needing the ability to add or duplicate multiple fields sets.
By default, the grid is empty, but can have other form components placed inside.
The example below illustrates five components placed inside the Edit Gird. Layout components can be used to replicate the split view below, and additional rows are added automatically when additional form elements are dragged into the interface.
The other example below shows the Edit Grid in the rendered form. The form layout is displayed when the 'Add Another' button is pressed, and the form appears below the grid for user entry. Once the forms are filled out, press the 'Save' button inside each of them.
When the forms are saved, the data entries are added to the table, and the data display in the entries below each respective header, independent of the form layout. If you want to edit the saved data entry, press the 'Edit Row' button next to the appropriate entry, which then will turn into the form layout for editing. If you want to remove a certain data entry, just press the 'Remove Row' button.
