  • Database editing
  • Configuration controlling
  • Data merging
  • Workforce planning
  • Sales reporting
  • Financial analysis
New Feature

This is a new feature in Joget Workflow v6.

Figure 2 : Spreadsheet Form Element Properties

NameDescription
SpreadsheetElement ID of the form element.
LabelSpreadsheet label/title.
Columns

The spreadsheet column(s) is defined here.

Sub-elementDescription
ValueField ID of the column.
Label

Column header title/label.

You can also include a tooltip that shows up when someone hovers over the column label.

Sample

Example label:

<span title='This tooltip will show when someone hovers over the column'>Column Label A</span>

Format Type

Defines the type of input to store.

Default format type is Text.

Available Data Types:

  • Text - format the value as text
  • Numeric - accepts a numeric value (See Format documentation)
  • Date - accepts a date type value
  • Time - accepts a time type value
  • Checkbox - appears as a checkbox to check
  • Dropdown - appears as a dropdown menu to select options
  • Autocomplete - autocompletes any known phrases
  • Password - obscures any alphanumerical value into a password
  • File - Accept file upload and render a file download link
  • Image - Accept image file upload and render a thumbnail
  • URL - Convert value to an URL
  • Hidden - Hidden column for storing formular value
  • Custom - Use custom setting to configure the column. Examples: Spreadsheet Custom Formats
Format

Defines the format to show data on the spreadsheet based on the chosen format type.

  • Numeric - Key in format accepted by numbrojs library. (For example, 0.00 is to create 2 decimal places)
  • Date - Key in format accepted by moment.js library. (Default value: DD/MM/YYYY)
  • Time - Key in format accepted by moment.js library.(Default value: h:mm:ss a)
  • Dropdown - Key in Form ID that contains the equivalent dropdown element.
  • Autocomplete - See handsontable for samples.
  • File - Key in Form Def ID that contains File Upload form element.
  • Image - Key in Form Def ID that contains Image Upload form element.
  • URL - Provide an URL syntax. Example: http://www.joget.org?id={id}&name={name}
  • Hidden - Key in default value to be saved.
  • Custom - See handsontable for samples. Please put the setting json in {{ and }}. Example: {{"editor":"text"}}

Please note that any string within {{ and }} will be treat as setting json and used to configure the column.

Regex ValidationValidates input value to match the defined Regular Expression pattern.
Formula

Defines a formula to perform processing.

Sample

Example: sales + profit-loss


Please refer to formula.

ReadonlyDefines if the column is editable.

NameDescription
Validator

Attach a Validator plugin to validate the input value. Please see Form Validator.

When will validation takes place?

Validation will takes place whenever form is submitted except when it is submitted as "Save as Draft".

Min Number of Row Validation (Integer)Defines the minimum number of rows required for input.
Max Number of Row Validation (Integer)Defines the maximum number of rows possible for input.
Error MessageError message to be shown when row requirements set above is not met.

Special Function

FORMDATA(formDefId, primaryKey, fieldName) in Spreadsheet "Formula" column.

where:

  • formDefId: The form id of the source form containing the setup data to 'pull' from.
  • primaryKey: The dependent pulldown field id in your spreadsheet design, that provides the WHERE condition to search the data to populate.
  • fieldName: The field id of the source form to populate in this spreadsheet column based on the above 'primaryKey' value.

Use this function to 'pull' and populate a spreadsheet cell based on available data in other forms.

For example, to make spreadsheet pull and display the population value after the user picks the city name (pulldown menu), use FORMDATA("city_formId",select_city,"population") where 'select_city' is the first field id in your spreadsheet.
