Subject Re: Create new form model for later binding
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2004 06:18:43 GMT

I am  not sure what you mean by the "forms validated 'model'";
surely its the form's *data* that gets validated by the model?
And why can you not just use the: 


to create a new, blank form - think of it as a 


if that makes more sense?

Sorry if I am misunderstanding completely!

Thanks, but this is not what I mean. This is a NEW instance of a form
(i.e. a form that has no data yet) so there is 
nowhere to load the data from. I need to miss out the loadDocument()
function altogether, but this means I don't have 
a 'document' object for the required saveDocument() function.

Can I create a 'document' from the forms validated 'model' object?
