Multirow Form Binder gives you the ability to save multirow data such as grid data into its designated table.
In the example below, one can make use of this binder in the Enhanced Grid Form Element (Form Grid) element to store items for the Application Form.
Figure 1: Application Form (Table name: applications)
In figure 1, apart from the normal input fields, there's a Form Grid element will makes reference to the Item Form as depicted below.
Figure 2: Item Form (Table name: application_items)
In figure 2, one will need to add additional (hidden) field as the foreign key (parent_id) to the Application Form.
