I have never used Scribo before, but I was wondering if it was capable (or
nearly capable) of creating an application that would allow the addition of
new arbitrary data entry "fields"?
Basically, I need an arbitrary data collection tool that an end user can
customize a bit.
I simply want the end user to be able to select a [new] field "type" (text,
yes/no, drop down, etc...) and have the new "field" get added to the
I thought maybe I could hyperlink the field description to a "properties"
pane in the browser so they could set the field description, data type( for
eventual data export), etc...
I have a few thoughts about positioning elements "easily" within a grid
using coordinate "properties," but will be happy for now to just position
them linearly one after another!
Anyway, I currently have a domain object that you can add and remove fields
to/from, which is subclassed from Ramon's SandstoneDB SDActiveRecord class,
so it also knows how to save itself to disk. For a first draft, I just need
a WebApplication object that can track and generate the arbitrary fields
stored in the object. I think I can do this pretty easily, but just
wondered if Scribo would be a more robust solution.
