Built-in Signup form

Post by Biju » Wed May 04, 2016 1:29 pm

If only one filed has error (eg. E mail), why all other fields are clearing with a message "Email is not a valid email address. Please check and try again."

in this case only the Email input filed should be cleared and not all other fields that has no errors.

This behaviour act as a 'Reset' button.

No the purpose of a reset button is to reset all fields not just those that are filled incorrectly.So this is not a error and works as intended.

I am not talking about 'Reset'. I know the purpose of reset button.

When we click "create user" button, all correctly filled fields should be remain filled there except incorrect fields.

But in our case if one filed is incorrect, all other correctly filled fields are also cleared when click 'Create User' button. So we have to start filling all the fields (correctly filled and incorrectly filled) from the beginning.

That is what I said "This behaviour act as a 'Reset' button."

Hope you understood what I meant.

If you submit a form then the browser will clear all contents of the form, because it will reload the page to process the data. The browser will not store the values.
You will need to implement some kind of state storage, for example by using web storage.

Correct.. But if all the fileds are not filled/correct how the form will be submitted.
In google and facebook signup the correct input data will be remain there even if we click next or create account button (They will not clear ALL the data which already enetered) . So that we can correct the incorrect/un-filled data only (see images beelow)

There is no standard functionality in HTML that will save the data, you will have to do this yourself.

Validation can be done before redirecting the page to next page.
Not if the data is validated on the server, like in the login tools. In that case the data must first be send to the server.
If you need more advanced validation then convert the login form to a standard form.

Here are some suggestions:
Message to Pablo: I would be happy to check your English in both the written PDF instructions and some of the built in tools. Sometimes it gets to be completely incomprehensible.

The "login tools' demonstration template is confusing and poorly explained.

There is no sequential start here by taking 'this' and doing 'that' to it.

Whoever wrote this template really is not a good communicator. This is frustrating because setting up a login page like this should take say two hours from start to finish whereas I find that I am still confused as to what is meant by many of the spurious bits and pieces of instructions.

In conclusion, this template is more difficult to understand than simply taking the components and using user logic to put them together.

And please don't tell me that I've put this message in the wrong place.

I'm sorry to hear that my English is bad and I'm a not a good communicator.
I really did the best I can with the best intentions. I'm sorry to be such a failure. Maybe I should look for another hobby :?

Pablo do not take offence to the previous comments by petertj there is always one who is never satisfied or appreciates what you do. Keep up the great work questions. nd the 'free' service you provide to those who appreciate it.
@petertj I would say that you have placed this in the wrong thread if you have a comment to state you should open a new thread instead of hijacking the op questions to Pablo.

No offence was intended. I was once advised by a major software manufacturer that writing instruction manuals took them longer to write than the application.

Just to put the record straight I am very satisfied with what I consider to be the best piece of software I have encountered in an IT career spanning 37 years. A better response would have been a query as to how the issue described could have been improved.

Both you Pablo and Baconfries should note that my criticism was accompanied by an offer to help to improve the noted issue. This offer was not taken up.

On the basis that it must take Pablo a huge number of hours on a daily basis to produce such an excellent piece of software it would make sense if some of this load was shared.

Baconfries, why don't you assist me in making video tutorials to help others to understand how to use WWB more easily than at present?
