Build Joomla Payment Forms

Dear friends, today we have prepared for you an incredible update. Joomla Forms 1.3.0 is here! You will be agreeably surprised!

    Forms 1.3.0 Launched! Summary Fields and Payment Gateways

    Summary Fields

    The most interesting feature of the new version of component Forms is the option "Summary Fields".



    That you can understand the possibilities of the new version and why you should use the option Summary Fields, we have prepared for you a demo.

      Summary Fields - Joomla Forms

      Well, how about it, do you like it?! Summary Fields open incredible possibilities for you.



      In order to activate the option Summary Fields, you need to open a modal window with Forms options, click a "Payment" tab and select "Display Total".

        Summary Fields available for the next tools:


        • CheckBox
        • CheckBox Inline
        • Radio
        • Radio Inline
        • Dropdown
        • Select Multiple



        We have also completely changed the manner of adding, deleting and editing the values. This idea was taken from plugins of the Gridbox component. Pay attention to values you can arrange by using Drag and Drop.

          Payment Gateways

          Yeah, we did it! We have added payment gateways, which are also substantial progress in the development of component Forms. 



          Firstly, we wanted to add only PayPal and then gradually add other payment systems. But at one point we arrived at a conclusion, that it's necessary at once add more payment systems and give you more possibilities. So, Ladies and Gentlemen - 5 payment systems:


          • Paypal
          • 2checkout
          • Skrill
          • WebMoney
          • PayU


          At first, we want to notice that if you connect the payment system to the Forms, in pressing the icon "Submit" your users will be automatically redirected to the site of the payment system, where they will need to accomplish their purchase.

            Color Pickers

            On our forum, we often received questions about how to make Forms with transparent backgrounds? So, in a new version of component Forms, we have completely reworked the color pickers.

              Now you have a possibility to assign not only the background color, fonts, etc but also you can assign the transparency.


              Nice example of Form with transparent background and transparent fields.

                Modal Dialogs

                In the new version of component Forms, we are very seriously come down to the point of modal windows and made grave changes in their structure and appearance.




                Open Forms Moda by Link



                Foremost, we want to notice that we have added the facility to open modal windows by clicking on the link. To activate the link, you have to select the type of icon link in the options Popup Forms.

                  The link you can place wherever on your site, even in the text of any other blog post.




                  The New Structure of the Modal



                  In previous versions of component Forms, the modal window has a value of the full height, and then the scroll appeared. In this version, we removed the scroll, added several changes in the CSS, and now the modal window with long-form looks incredibly cool.

                    We have also added animations to the opening and closing of the modal window.




                    Send Message



                    As previously noted, we are very seriously come down to the point of modal windows and the modal window with the message about a state of sending the form is no exception.

                      Briefly - it's handsomely and modern. We have added animations, replaced the loader icon and now the window looks very gracefully.



                      Of course, for all modal windows, we have added the icon Close in the Google Material Design style.

                        Upload Icons

                        One further peculiarity of the new version of component Forms is the possibility to add icons for the fields. You can add icons for the next fields:


                        • Email
                        • Text Area
                        • Text Input
                        • Drop Down



                        An incredible amount of the icons from the Google Material Icons library is available for you, with more than 700 different icons. We made the window of icon selection the same as in the Icons plugin of the Gridbox component. Looks very cool! It's very easy and simple!

                          You can change the icons' color and size. The options for the icons we placed in the "Form Options" tab.

                            Checkboxes and Radio Buttons

                            To the end that your forms have a specific and first-class design, we have changed the design for Checkboxes, Radio Buttons and Slider.
