Retrieve data from topic and load into form for edit

I have created a form using the FormPlugin. I can enter data and save the data to an auto inc topic. How do I get the form created using the FormPlugin to load the data from a topic for viewing / editing?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

If you've stored the form data in the saved topic's data form, you can retrieve the values using FORMFIELD macro. Inside the FORMELEMENT attributes you need to escape the macro tokens % and " using $percnt and $quot.

For example:
  value="$percntFORMFIELD{$quotMyDataField$quot topic=$quotMyTopic$quot}$percnt"
