Survey

Survey is a library to simplify the process of creating and validating forms. This library is loosely based on CoreData and Django forms.

To-do: (Just starting development, much more to come)

  • More Validators
  • Generate forms from ManagedObject models
  • Block based form actions.

Setting up

To set up, place the Survey project file into your project, link to the libSurvey.a framework and add it as a target dependency, then just #import and go to town!

Example Form Model:

Setting up a form is pretty simple, you just subclass SurveyFormModel and set up properties for the fields you want. Then, in the implementation, set up each field with the properties you want.

// RegisterForm.h
@interface RegisterForm : SurveyFormModel
@property (strong, nonatomic) SurveyField *firstname;
@property (strong, nonatomic) SurveyField *lastname;
@property (strong, nonatomic) SurveyField *email;
@property (strong, nonatomic) SurveyField *password;
@end

// RegisterForm.m
@implementation RegisterForm
-(SurveyField *)firstname
{
    SurveyField *field    = [SurveyField fieldWithPlaceholder:@"First Name"];
    field.isRequired      = NO;
    field.label           = @"First Name";
    field.validationBlock = ^(id form, id field, id value) {
        NSString *fieldValue = [(NSString *)value lowercaseString];
        return [fieldValue isEqualToString:@"wess"];
    };

    return field;
}

-(SurveyField *)lastname
{
    SurveyField *field  = [SurveyField fieldWithPlaceholder:@"Last Name"];
    field.isRequired    = YES;
    field.label         = @"Last Name";

    field.shouldBeginEditing = ^(id field) {
        NSLog(@"OH YEAH, WE BE EDITING");

        return YES;
    };

    field.didEndEditing = ^(id field) {
        NSString *value = ((UITextField *)field).text;

        NSLog(@"Field Value: %@", value);
    };


    return field;
}

-(SurveyField *)email
{
    SurveyField *field  = [SurveyField fieldWithPlaceholder:@"Email"];
    field.isRequired    = YES;
    field.expression    = [[NSRegularExpression alloc] initWithPattern:@"[A-Z0-9a-z._%+-]+@[A-Za-z0-9.-]+\\.[A-Za-z]{2,4}" options:0 error:nil];

    return field;
}

-(SurveyField *)password
{
    SurveyField *field  = [SurveyField fieldWithPlaceholder:@"Password"];
    field.isRequired    = YES;
    field.isSecure      = YES;

    return field;
}

Using the form

Using the form is also pretty simple, you just init the form and then when you want to use it, you just check that it's valid then grab the values you need.

RegisterForm *registerForm = [[RegisterForm alloc] init];
if(registerForm.isValid)
{
    NSString *firstname = [registerForm.form valueForField:@"firstname"];
    NSString *lastname  = [registerForm.form valueForField:@"lastname"];
    NSString *email     = [registerForm.form valueForField:@"email"];
    NSString *password  = [registerForm.form valueForField:@"password"];

    // Now do something with your new values.
}
