This should be pretty straightforward to get the XML representation of a filled form, and the opposite. Like 2 lines of code to get the values, and another 2 lines to bing the form. Then saving it to the db is one line, in a TEXT column.
Rules and Projections and using it extensively.
Do you mean of an admin form or a public form (such as a registration form). What I was hoping to do was create something such as a registration form and allow the admin to see the list of registered users.
It's used primarily in the Rules and Projections UI, where it allows other modules to contribute bits of form to build a larger UI. Unfortunately the process of getting data back out of it seemed a bit obscure, at least that was my impression when I tried
to use it for a simple admin form, and I got the feeling it was more geared towards those complex scenarios than creating simple individual forms. I ended up just using MVC. Still, if you follow the Rules and Projections examples you might get further and
see something I missed.
Although, I don't know how you plan to use jQuery to get data out of a database?
I'd use a WCF service to return the data as a JSON dataset and then use jQuery within the page to show it.
