Hi

Short question: Can/should form parts still be used in NG?

Thanks and best regards

I had a similar question when converting my smart client forms to NG equivalents.
I took the decision to use the template for flex layout that gives you a header, content, and a footer,
I then had to make "intelligent" use of these three areas and not to exactly duplicate smart client look.
Hope this helps.

Hi Tom

Thank you for the response. I'll try to get experience with the flex layout. I hope I got you right: You define a form with a responsive layout.

So far, we created forms with css position layout. And when defining a footer part, we had problems with the css setting of a table or data grid: When setting bottom to 0, the table looks ok in the browser, the lower bounds end before the footer. But in the designer, the component reaches the footers bottom and we have warning "out of bounds". So we thought, maybe parts should not be used anymore.

I'm looking forward, making experiences with flex layout.
Best regards
Birgit

I think that you can also mix the css positioning within the flex layout.
Examine some of the webinars from Servoy about flex layout such as:

The flex layout works nice!

What I do not understand: Id I add a bootstrap button, the layout properties are confusing. Looks like fix layout mixed with css layout. See attachment. Can anybody help? What is the idea? How can/shoud the button be placed?

Thanks and regards
