New Update for Our Form Builder

Joomla Forms 1.2.0 Released

We had a little time off between tasks with Gridbox and we decided to add new options for our Joomla Forms. Here come Forms v.1.2.0, which was already uploaded on our website and you can easily update to the new version.

    Joomla Forms 1.2.0 Released

    The new version of the Forms Component received 3 new options:


    • Notification Dialog on Form Submit
    • Print submissions
    • Additional options for a Google maps plugin

    Notification Dialog on Form Submit

    In the previous Forms version after successfully sending the form, the notification message was displayed as a standard text under the form.



    In Forms 1.2.0, the state of sending the form displayed in the dialog box.

      You can customize the dialog box to match your website design by using the next options:


      • Message Bg Color - allows you to set the body color of the modal box
      • Message Font Color - allows you to set the message color, which informs the user about the state of sending the form
      • Lightbox Bg - allows you to set the background color and transparency of the dialog box
      • Custom HTML code for Form Sent Message and Form Error Message fields



      By means of the above options, you can create really beautiful messages, that will complete the design of your website. Submit the form on the Joomla Forms Showcase page to view the new notification dialog.

        Print Submissions

        A short while ago, our customer asked about the possibility to print the submissions. We decided, why not, keeping in mind that it's a fairly standard option that Joomla has.

          To print the form Submission, you have to select it in the list and press the icon “print” as usual. It's all very simple and easy.

            Options for a Plugin Google Maps

            Google maps plugin received two additional options:


            • Scroll Zooming
            • Draggable Map



            In the new Forms 1.2.0, you have the possibility to activate and deactivate these options for Google Maps. They will be very helpful if you set the large sizes of maps, and now occasional zooming or dragging of maps will not disturb you.



            A complete list of changes of Forms v.1.2.0 you can find in the Forms Documentation.



            We are always glad and open to new ideas and propositions, don't hesitate to write your suggestions in the comments. Have a nice day!
