I've read that section numerous times. I find the whole page very
confusing. Here's a couple of examples:
1) Normally I would expect documentation to tell me the basic format
and then the parameters referenced in the format. But it seems like
there are "special markups" between those. I don't know what a special
markup is. An alternate way of specifying a form?
Is (:fox formname etc.:) still required, or does (:foxreplace...:)
takes its place?
2) It's not clear what "foxaction=replace" means. There's no mention
of "foxaction" in the basic format. Is that something I literally put
somewhere on some line?
Anyway, I can see that Fox is is a wonderful and powerful tool - if
you know how to use it. I would like to learn.
Let's take a very simple case of replacement. Suppose I want to change
all occurances of "Old" to "New" in MyGroup.Sandbox. To make it really
easy, let's put the form on MyGroup.Sandbox too.
The page has:
Here's what I would guess is the first line of the form:
(:fox form1 put=all mark="Old" template=0
I'd guess there is a (:foxreplace:) and a (:foxtemplate "New":) to
specify before the final (:foxend form1:)
Am I close? Can you show me a complete working sample of code to do
the above task (a picture is worth a thousand words...)?
