MPForm Documentation: Help for users

Level of difficulty: A  

FormX, the predecessor of MPForm, introduced the place holder {HELP}. If you put this place holder somewhere in the Field Loop code field in the backend and enter some help text for some fields, all those fields will display a button with a question mark. If the user has JavaScript enabled and presses the button, the help text will become visible.

How nice, I thought. But the first time I used this feature in a real life task, the answer from the ordering customer was: This is important information in the help text which the user must know when he fills out the fields, why is he required to press the help button for each field?

This is why we now have another place holder {HELPTXT}. If you put this place holder somewhere in the Field Loop code field in the backend and enter some help text for some fields, all those fields will display the help text instantly.
