Hi Stefano,

Briefly,

<xforms:switch>
  <xforms:case>
    <!-- page 1 goes here (both HTML and XForms UI) -->
  </xforms:case>
  <xforms:case>
    <!-- page 2 goes here -->
  </xforms:case>
  <xforms:case>
    <!-- page ... goes here -->
  </xforms:case>
</xforms:switch>

Then you would need buttons or perhaps a list to fire 'toggle' events to
flip the pages.

Thanks,

.micah

Subject: grouping form controls in multiple XHTML pages


Hello, I'm trying to visualize how a multi-page form would look like in 
XForms/XHTML, is there any example I can copy from?
What I'm trying to acheive is the same functionality that can be seen on 
the XSmiles browser under Edit|Configuration (xsmiles/cfg/config.xml): 
only one model at the beginning of the document, followed by a series of 
"UI-cards" implementing it in the rest of the document.
I know that actual functionalities like navigation and persistance of 
data between between cards will someday be provided by a 
browser-specific-standard UI element (like the "Site navigation bar" in 
mozilla), I don't care about seeing it work today, I just need an 
example of how would it be done in XForms/XHTML.
Thank you, ciao
ste
