The form can be filled out by a visitor of your homepage and sent to you. The advantage is that the visitor does not need to have an email address or an email client installed to fill out the form.

In the editor, forms can be created easily without programming knowledge. The bluetronix software automatically corrects field names and form elements. Sent forms are generally stored in the form archive  Extras -> Form archive stored. Additionally, the forms can be forwarded to an email address. An automatic confirmation to the sender can also be set.

The form can be submitted in text mode (Field -> Name: Sampler) as well as in HTML mode (1:1 the filled out form mask).

In this example, the contact form shown in the picture above is to be created.

A transparent table with border width 0 is used to align the form fields.

 Forms are displayed in the editor with a purple dotted frame. Especially when using several forms on one page, the form frame must be observed.

Inserting a selection (select field)

Click in the left table field (1st line) and enter the name �Anrede�. Switch to the right field and click in the editor on the Form Symbol.

Click in the form window on Selection. Enter �Anrede� as the field name. The values �Herr�, �Frau� and �Firma� with �__� characters are now entered separately in the �Werte� field.

Inserting a single-line input field (input field)

Change to the 2nd line and enter �Name� in the left table field. Click in the right field and open the Form Window.

Enter your first name at Name�-Name� and activate the option �Muss-Feld� (this means that the field must be filled in, otherwise the form cannot be sent). At �Wert� a default setting can be specified. In this example the field is left blank. Confirm with insertion. The size of the input field can now be defined in the editor. To do this, click on the input field and drag the field to the desired size.

Proceed in the same way with the remaining input fields.

 Automatic confirmation to the sender: If you enter �Email� at �Feld-Name�, the sender will automatically receive a confirmation e-mail after the form has been sent, provided that the e-mail address has been entered.

Send button

Now the so-called �Senden-Button� is inserted. With a click on this button the visitor can send the form.

To do this, open the Form window and click on Button. The fields �Namen� and �Wert� remain empty and under �Funktion� �Senden� remains the default. Click Insert.

 Under Button -> Function (selection field) you will also find the functions Reset (Reset form to initial state) Back, Print, Refresh and Button (normal button).

Form options

Finally the form options are set. To do this, click in the editor on  Form and in the form window on Options.

If you want the form to be forwarded by email, enter the corresponding email address under Email address.

The �Betreff� is the name of the form, for example �Betreff-Formular�. This appears in the email subject (when forwarding) and in the form archive  Extras -> Form archive as form name.

At �Ziel-Seite� a page can be specified which the visitor will see after sending the form. For example: �Das form was successfully completed versandt�. In general, this page is already preset.

The archive type specifies the transmission of the form. In text mode, the field name is stored with the entered value. For example �Name: Mustermann�. In HTML mode, the form is saved 1:1 with the entered values.

Testing a form

Save the page, close the editor and test the form. Fill in all fields and click on �transmission�. If fields that need to be filled in are empty, a hint message appears.

In the edit mode of your website, open the form archive at Extras -> Form archive.

If you have entered an email address for forwarding, check the email inbox.
