Subject Re: Styling an fd:multivaluefield item?
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2007 06:01:32 GMT

I thought I explained my problem quite well :)
The core issue is that each item essentially needs two key properties:
* a numeric (or text) value
* a true/false status
The first "value" has to be styled as an input box "value" attribute; the 
second has to be styled as an input box "checked=true/false" attribute. 
The current fd:form definition does not allow me to add the true/false
status property to an item definition - or, if it does, I am not clear how.
Does this make more sense?

I dont understand well your problem, where do you want to process the 
checked attribute ?
Maybe you could use some JS DOM scripting to add those attributes. I 
can't give you much advice on form generators :(
