I'm stuck - please help

Ina Snyman
Hi there

I really am stuck with this.

I am trying to compile a program using templates. The rebrander will work to a certain extent, let me explain my situation more clearly.

I want to make use of various html template files. These "blanks" will then be updated using the rebrander. Now, here is my dilema. If I use the rebrander I have to have a client startup with the rebrander to "fill the blanks" otherwise and I suppose this is what I should use - is to use forms. (don't know how)

I do not have a clue what I am doing but do know what I want the end result to be. That is a "software program" where the end user can fill the blanks and save their output to either html or text. This whole process is something I need for myself. The difference is I don't want tons and tons of small programs running when I want to use something. I just want one program to do all the changes and then just do some basic editing if necessary.

I have no idea how to go about it. I am not a programmer by nature and learn by example. So, if anyone can help me please save me from  my misery

Long ago, I posted a zipped demo Activ project here:


It demos using a form to get user information, and how to write and read a .js file.   You could write an .html file just as easily.

Ina Snyman Thank you I downloaded the file and "figured" it out (well sort off).

There is 2 questions I'd like to add to this.

1. How can I get the following script to work with active form using the writefile.as and readfile.as?

<A HREF="[={websiteurl}]" onMouseOver=" window.status='[={pagename}]'; return true" onMouseOut="window.status=' '; return true">[{websitename}]</a>

and 2. How do I go about adding a field where I will be able to add long text to fill in my form (this is to go directly to my template as the other information does?

I thank you in advance for your kind support

I'm not sure why you need the rebrander at all; I guess I don't understand what you're going for here.

the second question can be answered with a quick search on Google for 'html forms text box'.  Any of those links will explain it for you.
