    Default Formhandler.php documentation

    where can I download documentation explaining how to configure the Nof Formhandler.php options

    example: when the form arrives, I need the senders email in the from field of outlook, otherwise I can't reply easily, there is no point in adding my email address in the basic form handler property palette, because I be replying to myself

    this is so easy when using the dbmasters formmailer, but I can't use that if I want to use update1 since this breaks any action to any outside script

    HI Anton

    If it's the same as it was in V11, short answer is - you can't!

    Actually you can - but you need to edit the NOF-supplied php script
    to make this happen.... (not a big deal if you know your php...)

    You will be disappointed with the formshandler component after using a script that allows flexibility

    Have you tried manually inserting your form tags as a work around?

    Wrapping your table tag (or layout region) with the form tag and not using the form tool instead of setting the table to a form using the check box.

    I've done this for years to insert cfform tags around all of my forms.

    Hi Mike

    I am actually not using the Nof Form Handler component, because it totally fails on my server, I get error saying method get is not allowed, but the Form Handler component has no provision to change the method from get to post

    I simply choose layout is a form

    then I click the form label next to layout label and select the formhadler.php in action field of the form property palette

    then I add input fields and submit button as usual

    the form works fine but it does not add the submitters email to the from field in the resulting email, this is a must and should be fixed as such

    in any case, I will continue using the original version 12 and use my dbmasters formmailer which is very flexible, hopefully an update2 will take care of the main problem from my other post

    I always had to use third party form processing scripts since Nof2, one would have hoped that Nof12 has this sorted out by now so many years later
