Subject Re: Cocoon 2.1.8 Forms + AJAX : Final call for help!
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2009 15:14:18 GMT
have a look at :

and more specifically at

All of this worked very well 1-2 years ago, with 2.1.9 and 2.2 Cocoon. 
This project generates from UML models form which were customized to 
work in Cocoon Portal with Ajax features enabled in CForms and CPortal.

 From memory, the parts in *

should show you how to make things work together and customize them.

If you are pretty brave, you should succeed. In my current project, 
based on KerBlue, my interest to have a Forms manager based on cocoon 
rising again :-) so I can give you some help,

cause problems though - with dialog box messages like "no xml answer" not really providing
me with a clue as to what the real problem it!  I also cannot get my existing site setup -
with heavily customized page layout, form styling and a form template layout that seems quite
different from the sample one (?) - to work (for example, the transformed page does not have
all the resources loaded into the page header).

work in Cocoon forms - by this I mean files, directories, site map entries etc. etc. (and
even specific code snippets in files - as its obvious that my customized form styling is missing
some vital element/s), I would really, really  appreciate it.  Otherwise I guess I will have
to write off another week of my life to Cocoon :(
