2 down, 3 to go!

I'm so excited about this, I have to talk about it!

The Business Accelerator I've been working on just passed it's 2nd major milestone! For the form builder, I wanted to merge the Field Adder (click "Add Field", a new text field is added to the form without erasing the current info) with the Row Mover (the "Netflix Queue" effect). In my mind, it worked perfectly. In real life, it was a pain to get to. But now that I made it, I'm excited!

Milestone 1 was getting the Field Adder put in place and tested. It worked right out of the box.

Milestone 2 was adding the Row Mover. After much testing, Milestone 1 had to be re-worked from scratch. After much testing and many, many edited pages, the Row Mover worked (many thanks to jsfiddle.net/pvpFU/2/ for the jQuery field adder and isocra.com/2008/02/table-drag-and-drop-jquery-plugin/ for the drag-and-drop jQuery feature). As of today: M2 has been reached and passed!

Milestone 3 will be for field deletion without messing up the current field structure. Should be easy (I hope)

Milestone 4 will be for field submission with database structure building rules (basically: taking the data and putting it in the database to be re-constructed as a form on the fly)

Milestone 5 will be testing the database insertion to make sure the form is built correctly.

Can't wait to get back in the code!
