Subject Re: Cocoon 2.1.t: is it still difficult to embed a CForm into legacy pages?
Date Fri, 13 May 2005 10:24:52 GMT

We faced this problem few days ago.
I have integrated some  Cforms with quite difficulties but that's 
because I didn't know CForms meta language.

Today, CForms comes with sample stylesheets, css and js.
What I did is to modified a little bit these files to get things work 
(visually) but I keep all the functionalities in them.

If you overload the stylesheets with more css classes, you'll integrate 
quickly the Forms.

I admit there is no enough documentation and you have to see regurlarly 
into the stylesheets to know what to use.
