easy way to find out field id's?

  1. Hi guys,

    Is there an easy way of finding out the id of each form field generated by the form?

    At the moment I am having to view source and scroll through code guessing which one is which? It's especially hard when there are hidden or admin only fields in the form.

    Its mainly when writing hooks for each form, getting the field / entry id correct is difficult from a developer point of view. It might be worth on the form editor putting the id as a visible item in the top corner or something?

  2. One of the admins posted a snippet to do exactly what you're asking a while back. I'm having trouble finding it at the moment, but I'll post it back here when I do.

    I'm sure we'll enhance the UI to include this information in a future release. There's a lot going on in the UI now as it is, so we have to be careful to include things in a way that doesn't clutter up the interface.

  3. Awesome, the time saved for the developer with that addition would be massive!

  5. Still digging. I've emailed the developer (he's out of the country for one more week with limited Internet access) so he can help me find it for you. I'll post it here as soon as I do I promise.
