Group Inputs

Hey, I was wondering if anyone had a way of logically group various inputs (and then grouping those groups, etc)? The way we intend to use this, as an example, we want to have a 'type' of address, of which is composed of street address, postal/zip, country, etc. And it is important that when rendered, this group is grouped by either a div, field set, or whatever else is appropriate (ideally, it'd be an option). Is anyone working towards something like this? Any suggestions?

There is already something implemented in the latest changeset that may help you. All field types have a Group property of type string. Here is the description that appears on the property: A friendly field group name. Use this to group fields together for your own purposes.

Thanks for the info!

However, when I grouped a few fields together, and looked at the resulting html, I could not notice any differences.

 

Where does this group come into effect? / how do you use it?

Sorry, the grouping is logical and really intended for server side use only at this point. You could write your own form rendering method.
