In this guide, you will learn how to create forms with Jigx. Forms are mainly used to collect and update data for various data sources.
We will use Dynamic Data to store the data. If you want to learn more about Dynamic Data and its capabilities, check out this guide: Dynamic Data
As we will use Dynamic Data for storing the data in this guide, please read the section below about Defining a Dynamic Data table before proceeding to the next part.
Before we can start creating records in Dynamic Data, our table has to be defined in the solution:
- In your solution, go to the default.jigx file in the databases folder and add the following YAML:
The next time when you will publish your solution to Jigx, it will create a table in Dynamic Data for your solution. You can always log in to the and navigate to the Data area of your solution to check the tables and contents. We will use this table in this guide for storing the form data.
Now you can proceed to the next part, Creating a Record to get familiar with forms.
