Metadot Forms is a forms package for Metadot.
Version: 3.1.2-0.1.3.1Metadot Forms is a forms package for Metadot. Using the web based GUI you can create custom forms (screens) with text, popups, radio-buttons and validation. Metadot Forms also automagically provides searching, sorting and more. It is in the spirit of Hypercard or Oracle Forms.
Operating System: Linux
No longer do you have to munge all sorts of stuff into "description" and not be able to get it back or sort it. You can add a field "Earned Run Average" and make sure it is 0.00 to 9.99, or specify a popup... and so on.
In the metadot traditional, you can put "Cards" in Categories, cut and paste them... anything you can do with the basic metadot "Item".
