Web Forms will be removed: The desk (app) interface will now be the common UI for all form based entries. Web Forms always had second class treatment, and the expectation from Web Form is of the full form. Also most of the code of Web Forms was patch work. Web Forms will now be accessible from the /app/ interface, so all Web Forms will start with the url /app/form
I could understand it but it’s very surprising that Frappe Team, themselves have not created a single doctype layout based on existing any doctype ( Before or after merging This feature PR). If they do, they can notice it as there are three-four issues that should address for making it workable.
I am just sharing here my observation based on my limited technical knowledge. First, the route/path is not right. Surprisingly the PR has been added by @rmehta himself and he/anyone could fix it quickly.
I am not a technical person so my observation may not be the exact as needed. However, @Maheshwari_Bhavesh can add his comments to seek the attention of the frappe team as one of very interesting functionality is still in lock .
Thx for PR , Pls look about mandatory validation for field “Label” that should have exception for column break and section break in child doc type “DocType Layout Field”. Once this being addressed , one can use this feature
I was following this feature release a long back when it was in the re-design branch of frappe . It has been released without any basic testing whether it works or not. After releasing such half cacked feature , it’s a big question about the quality of new PRs and everyone needs to be cautious about upgrading Frappe/ERP system every upgrade opportunity.
Am a new learner and became big fan of the frappe and erpnext. Investing huge time to learn . It was shocking for me when I seen release of feature which does not work at all and neither its being withdrawn and not listened too. When no response , I came out alternative solution to build multiple doc types and run server script to push values to core DocType @brian_pond And this is initial PR from @rmehta in Nov
You cannot create your own Column Breaks or Section Breaks. The best you can do is try to “find” a preexisting one, and select it. This is hit or miss. The form doesn’t tell you what kind of DocField types you’re looking at.
Once you’ve removed them from your Layout, you cannot add Child Tables back again.
Zero documentation, or developer feedback. Whoever wrote and owns this, is keeping very quiet.
