Form Settings

The form settings specify attributes of the HTML form's <form> tag, currently method and action. The other settings instruct the code generator how to supply the HTML form with code, i.e., as client-only or client-server application, optionally with database support, and in a fixed, fluid, or responsive HTML form layout.

Date Settings

The date settings panel allows to specify a custom date format with custom separators (Unicode is supported) for the date text field and the date string. It supplies the month select component with a month format. The initial date format is yyyy-mm-dd (ISO 8601). The names of the week days and the first day of week (Sunday or Monday) can be localized.

Datepicker Settings

The code generator creates dedicated date pickers for the regular and the accessible HTML form. Both date pickers use default or localized messages for accessibility and for the title attributes of the date picker elements. The placeholders below show the default messages. A "Locale ..." button for instant localization will come soon.
