Repeater Blocks

Release 4.11 introduces a new type of structural block in the EForm Designer: The Repeater Block. This type of block is used for simple multiplicity structures in EForm design, for example a list of attendees on a Meeting eform. Repeater Blocks will duplicate their contents as many times as needed to enter a list of items into a record. Lines can be added or removed as needed by using the new hovering control panels on the right and bottom of the block.

The Repeater Block has special controls for adding and removing rows. At the bottom of the block there are two ‘+’ buttons. The first adds a single row to the bottom of the block, while the second adds 5 rows. The red ‘x’ button removes the bottom row. When mousing over a specific row, a second control panel appears on the right side of the row, allowing users to add a row above the current one, or remove the current row.
