How to address limitless number of fields on the web?
Posted on 2004-09-22
I will be creating web forms for people to fill out on the web (using information derived from a FoxPro database). The number of fields used per record could be 10 or limiitless. From what i"ve read I will need to use multiple documents per record, but I don't want to do this so I"m hoping some one can suggest a better alternative.
I thought about using the Request_Content CGI variable. I figured I could have a LS agent create 1 Notes document per record, and just write HTML form fields for each field, then use the Request_Content field to grab all the on a post agent run (on submit), then save this info as HTML. But it looks like this method won't work because of size issues.
It seems like there should be some way to do this without using multiple Notes documents per record, because it doesn't even matter if this info is in Notes fields, as long as the outside folks can validate and fill in the web forms, and the inside folks can see what the outside folks have done. Is there something that can be done? What is the best way to handle this?
Thanks for any help.
