HTML forms in RefAPP 2.x

Hello @darius, @dkayiwa, @raff, @wyclif and others,

I’m trying to create forms in HTML Form Entry forms and it would be great if they show up in RefApp. for data entry and I am going through the documentation and couldn’t find something like that. Also, the ones that show up (like Vitals) are programmatically included, Is there a way to have custom forms from HTML form entry in Ref App. If this is still in production.

What is the best way for custom forms in RefApp?

I don’t think the RA has an html form designer, @mogoodrich can confirm, you need to create them in the legacy UI. To use them in the RA you would need to embed them in code I believe, and to include them on a page you need to do it via the htmlformentryui module’s features. I don’t think you can do it without writing any code (@darius might know better) which I believe is key to the BAO project, so you might have to forget html form entry all together if you don’t have to write any code.

Are there other options in RefApp 2.X for the forms?

I think xforms, @dkayiwa can chime in

This is why am trying to investigate if we can find a way to integrate another form designer solution like xwiki into OpenMRS

Is this what you are looking for?
