Best practice for RENDERFORM
macro to generate new topics.
One of the data form items is a feature list. Currently, I use textarea
type for this field, but I wonder if I should use textboxlist
or any different kind (in other words, what is the best practice?).
My concerns are related with:
- that I need to strike Enter button twice to display each item (each "feature" displayed in "feature" field) in new line,
- will it be convenient to search for information in such field.

Are you saying that you are current entering your list as one-item-per-line separated by a single return? I would say that it would definitely be a better practice to use
field type. It will make it easier both to enter data and for searching. If you look at the raw code of a data form with
, the list is stored simply as a comma-delineated list.
