NEWS / Product Update /

InForm Designer 4 Released

Latest update transforms InForm Designer into a 3-in-1 form design solution. Design paper forms, e-forms and Web forms in minutes!

InForm Designer 4 (formerly iFORM Designer) has been released and is available for immediate download from the Downloads page.

Old iFORM Plug-in licences work with the new InForm Designer release, meaning there is no need for existing iFORM Designer users to purchase new licences when they upgrade.

NOTE: InForm Filler (formerly iFORM Filler) has also been updated to reflect the changes made to InForm Designer.

The following features, properties, enhancements and fixes are included...

Installation

Prior to installing InForm Designer, existing users of iFORM Designer must un-license their iFORM Plug-ins then uninstall their current installation. When InForm Designer has been installed, InForm Plug-ins can be immediately licensed without additional payment.

General

  • All references to iFORM were renamed to InForm so fewer people think it is a form design application for Apple products such as the Mac, iPhone and iPad!

Features

  • Added a HTML Export feature that creates a Web page containing a HTML form. The HTML form is W3C compliant and replicates the look and operation of the original InForm document. An optional ASP or PHP file can also be created to notify form fillers that the form content has been submitted and to email it to one or more recipients.
  • Added a HTML tab to the Plug-in palette that contains the following HTML specific InForm plug-ins: HTML Label, HTML Text Box, HTML Text Area, HTML Password Text Box, HTML Email Text Box, HTML Numeric Text Box, HTML Hidden Field, HTML Image, HTML Check Box, HTML Radio Button, HTML Combo Box, HTML Date Box, HTML Time Box, HTML Button.
  • Added a Reset Form option to the View menu and a Reset Form button to the toolbar that can be used to reset an InForm document.
  • Added a Welcome screen that appears when InForm Designer is launched. This contains convenient options for creating a form, opening a form or accessing facilities on the Fly Software website. A Use Welcome Screen option has also been added to the View menu of InForm Designer.
  • Added a flyout menu to the New option on the File menu, and the New toolbar button, that contains the following options: Paper form or e-form, 640x480 "safe" Web form, 800x600 "safe" Web form, 1024x768 "safe" Web form.
  • Added a Validate Form option to the View menu and a Validate Form button to the toolbar of InForm Filler and Filler mode that validates the open InForm document.
  • Added the ability to add, modify and delete printer offsets. These can be defined for specific printers so filled in form content is aligned correctly on pre-printed forms.

Properties

  • Added a Reset Form property group for certain InForm Plug-ins that contains properties to determine whether a form element value/state is reset after resetting a form, and what the value/state should be.
  • Added a Validation property group for applicable InForm Plug-ins that contains properties related to validating associated form elements. Certain properties contained in the Validation property group were moved from other property groups.
  • Added an Error Messages property to applicable InForm Plug-ins that enables validation error messages to be defined for associated form elements.
  • Added an Input Format property to the Date Box plug-in that determines how a date needs to be entered by a user.
  • Added an Output Format property to the Date Box plug-in that determines how a date is displayed within an InForm document.
  • Added an Input Format property to the Time Box plug-in that determines how a time needs to be entered by a user.
  • Added an Output Format property to the Time Box plug-in that determines how a time is displayed within an InForm document.
  • Added a Web Link property to the Label and Image plug-ins to enable Web pages to be opened in the user's default Internet browser by clicking the associated label or image within an Inform document or Web form.
  • Added a Submit Value property to the Check Box and Radio Button plug-ins to enable values to be submitted when they are used during the creation of Web forms and when an InForm document is posted to a URL.

Enhancements

  • Added a Reset Form action to the Button plug-in to enable a button to be created for resetting an InForm document.
  • Added Actual Size, Fit to Width and Fit to Page actions to the Button plug-in to enable buttons to be created for changing how a page of an InForm document is viewed in InForm.
  • The options in the Actions drop-down list in the Actions dialog of the Button plug-in are now in a more logical order.
  • Added a message to the email section of the Button plug-in configuration dialog warning users about specifying Host, User Name and Password settings.
  • Added support for the PNG image format.
  • In the Online tab of the InForm Designer Licensing dialog, HTML InForm plug-ins appear in an expandble tree view below the InForm Plug-in they are associated with (and licensed by).
  • Updated the InForm Designer and InForm Filler user guides and Help to reflect the the changes to the latest release.
  • The InForm Designer and InForm Filler Help are now accessible online and are no longer included with the installations.
  • More context Help has been included.
  • More information about a Help topic is displayed on a single page instead of multiple pages.
  • Added an example Invoice form and Web form to the InForm Designer installation, and removed the Job Application form.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that prevented all InForm plug-ins being displayed on the Plug-in palette when it was undocked from the application window.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented read only InForm documents being opened including those opened from email and web links.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the splash screen to remain open if an InForm document was opened via an external source such as Windows Explorer.
  • Fixed an issue that was reporting the page zoom percent incorrectly when an InForm document was initially opened.
  • Fixed an issue where a "List index out of bounds" error dialog would appear when opening certain InForm documents from an external source such as Windows Explorer.
