Hello-

I'm looking for help using AHAH to add new fields, much like when you have a node fields with an unlimited number of values. There is a button that says 'Add Another Item'. How can I implement this / where is the code in core that I can examine?

Thanks!

Hi Jeff-

Add another works just like the examples in the Examples project: Use a AHAH-enabled submit button, and build the form with another <whatever> field. Essentially, you're driving it with a submit instead of a select or checkbox like in the example.

The D7 AJAX example has an explicit example of add-more - You may want to roll it for D6 and we'll add it to the Examples.

Thanks for the examples. I wanted to make a form with the ability to add and remove textfields and having come up with some working code I thought I should share it. More details, an example and code can be found here:

Thanks again,

Thanks for the link! The central location for these examples became the Examples project some years ago... Could you provide a patch over there? It would be great to see this for Drupal 7 as well, as 6 is nearly obsolete.

Thanks!
