Jarvis Pizzeria: Workaround for XSD list-element issue in WebForms by Richard Olrichs & Marcel van de Glind


In a previous blog we have made notices that it is not possible to create a Webform based on a xsd-type that contains a list elements. In our case a list of pizza ingredients.

In this post we will give an alternative way to create a webform that displays the data, including the list of ingredients. For this we have created a new form IngredientsWebForm.

As we tried before, It does not work to drop the full business object on the canvas. Therefore, we have now made up the form of separate components. 4 input text components, of which 2 are listed in a table component and a number component that is also displayed in the table. This results in the following format.

This is the form we will use for all different presentation (one of our next posts will be about different presentation of one and the same WebForm), but first we will use it in its default. In the top left corner you see that this is the main presentation which is also the default. It is quite logically that it is the default, because it’s the only one 🙂

After saving the WebForm we go back to the process to update the various tasks.

For each task we have switched the form reference to the new IngredientsWebForm. The below example shows this for the ‘Prepare Pizza Crust’ task. The example also shows that the Main presentation is selected for the task. Read the complete article here.
