Problem using xForms

(Ben Greatbatch) #1

Application Name: Reference Application

Version Number: 2.8.0

Question: Hi all, I’m trying to create a form using XForms (Version 4.3.12) and after creating the Schema it seems to only load the default Schema in XForm Designer and not any of the extra concepts that i have added added. I’m not sure what i am missing here???

I’ve been through the user guide on wiki but still seem to be doing something wrong.

Under “Form Fields” in the XForm Designer, right click and select “Refresh” from the menu that pops up.

I thought I might be missing a step??

If you right clicked on test and selected refresh with no effects, then share the server logs at

Sorry for the delay Daniel. I have pasted the log file contents into pastebin.

What is the name of the log file from which you got this?

(Ben Greatbatch) #12

Hi Daniel, That was from “View Server Log” under “Maintenance” in the system administration page.

(Daniel Kayiwa) #13

That is usually not good enough. You will need the one from the real log file.

Thanks Daniel, What’s the best log file to get? I’m new to exploring the log files.
