    Building Dynamic Forms in Customer Portal

    Hello everyone,


    One of the most common 'how do I do?' type questions we have received in the last couple of months concerns the ability to build out dynamic behaviors in forms, particularly on the Ask a Question page.


    There are a few things that the Developer new to Customer Portal needs to know when attempting to do something like this - particularly where, when and how?, from a best practice perspective, to do some of this work when building out custom widgets.


    As a result, we have build out a tutorial that shows three simple examples of this kind of activity. I've attached the SampleWidget files and the slides. A link to a recorded tutorial exploring each example has now been added (  - for the most part it adds some light commentary to the slides. The zipped file is also in a .WMV format.


    Let us know your feedback on this tutorial. Are examples like this useful? If so, what other types of tutorials would you like added in the near future?
