WebCreateNewTopicComponents

This topic is meant for developers. It contains INCLUDE sections to build a "create new topic" form.

Usage

Including the form (simple)

Create a form with an empty name field:
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="newtopic"
    newtopic=""
}%

Create a form with an "auto increment" name:
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="newtopic"
    newtopic="TestTopicAUTOINC0"
}%

Customizing the order and layout

See the component table below what parts you can use to construct a form.

This is the code used in the Sandbox.WebHome form:
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="js"
}%
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="formstart"
}%
<div class="foswikiFormSteps">
<div class="foswikiFormStep">
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="topicname"
    newtopic=""
}%
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="topicnamefeedback"
}%
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="wikiword"
}%
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="errorfeedback"
}%
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="submit"
}%
</div>
</div>
%INCLUDE{
    "%SYSTEMWEB%.WebCreateNewTopicComponents"
    section="formend"
}%
