The following features are only tested on linux hosts:

* HTML to PDF conversion - command `wkhtmltopdf`.
* Concatenation of PDF files - command `pdftk`.
* Mime type detection for uploads - command `file`.

Preparation
-----------

Report & Form
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In PHP 5.x the QFQ extension needs  the PHP MySQL native driver. The following functions are used and are only available with the
native driver (see also: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/php-mysqlnd/):

* mysqli::get_result (important),
* mysqli::fetch_all (nice to use)

To normalize UTF8 input, the *php5-intl* resp. *php7.0-intl* package is needed by

* normalizer::normalize()

56
For the `download`_ function, the programs `pdftk` and `file` are necessary to concatenate PDF files.
57

58
59
Preparation for Ubuntu 14.04::

60
61
	sudo apt-get install php5-mysqlnd php5-intl
	sudo apt-get install pdftk file                # for file upload and PDF
62
63
64
65
66
	sudo php5enmod mysqlnd
	sudo service apache2 restart

Preparation steps for Ubuntu 16.04::

67
	sudo apt install php7.0-intl
68
	sudo apt install pdftk libxrender1 file        # for file upload, PDF and 'HTML to PDF' (wkhtmltopdf)
69

70
.. _wkhtml:
71

72
73
wkhtmltopdf
^^^^^^^^^^^
74

75
76
`wkhtmltopdf <http://wkhtmltopdf.org/>`_ will be used by QFQ to offer 'website print' and 'HTML to PDF' conversion.
The program is not included in QFQ and has to be manually installed.
77

78
79
* The Ubuntu package `wkhtmltopdf` needs a running Xserver - this does not work on a headless webserver. Best is to
   install the QT version from the named website above.
80

81
In `config-qfq-ini`_ specify the:
82

83
84
85
86
87
88
89
90
* installed `wkhtmltopdf` binary:

  * `WKHTMLTOPDF = /.../wkhtmltopdf`

* the site base URL:

  * `BASE_URL_PRINT = http://example.com/`

91

92
93
**Important**: To access FE_GROUP protected pages or content, it's necessary to disable the `[FE][lockIP]` check! `wkhtml`
will access the Typo3 page locally (localhost) and that IP address is different from the client (=user) IP.
94
95

Configure via Typo3 Installtool `All configuration > $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']`: ::
96
97
98

   [FE][lockIP] = 0

99
100
101
102
103
**Warning**: this disables an important anti-'session hijacking' protection. The security level of the whole installation
will be *lowered*! Again, this is only needed if `wkhtml` needs access to FE_GROUP protected pages & content. As an
alternative to lower the security level, create a separated page subtree which is only accessible (configured via
Typosript) from specific IPs **or** if a FE-User is logged in.

104
105
If there are problems with converting/downloading FE_GROUP protected pages, check `SHOW_DEBUG_INFO = download` to debug.

HTML to PDF conversion
''''''''''''''''''''''

`wkhtmltopdf` converts a website (local or remote) to a (multi)-page PDF file. It's mainly used in `download`_.

Print
'''''

Different browser prints the same page in different variations. To prevent this, QFQ implements a small PHP wrapper

115
`print.php` with uses `wkhtmltopdf` to convert HTML to PDF.

117
118
119
120
121
122
123
124
125
126
Provide a `print this page`-link (replace {current pageId})::

	<a href="typo3conf/ext/qfq/qfq/api/print.php?id={current pageId}">Print this page</a>

Any parameter specified after `print.php` will be delivered to `wkhtmltopdf` as part of the URL.

Typoscript code to implement a print link on every page::

	10 = TEXT
	10 {
127
		wrap = <a href="typo3conf/ext/qfq/qfq/api/print.php?id=|&type=2"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-print" aria-hidden="true"></span> Printview</a>

	}

Setup
-----

* Install the extension via the Extensionmanager.

  * If you install the extension by manual download/upload and get an error message
    "can't activate extension": rename the downloaded zip file to `qfq.zip` or `qfq_<version>.zip` (e.g. version: 0.9.1).

  * If the Extensionmanager stops after importing: check your memory limit in php.ini.

* Enable the online local-documentation_.
* Copy/rename the file *<Documentroot>/typo3conf/ext/<ext_dir>/config.example.qfq.ini* to
  *<Documentroot>/typo3conf/config.qfq.ini* and configure the necessary values: `config.qfq.ini`_
  The configuration file is outside the extension directory to not loose it during updates.

146
* When the QFQ Extension is called the first time on the Typo3 Frontend, the file *<ext_dir>/qfq/sql/formEditor.sql* will
  played and fills the database with the *FormEditor* records. This also happens automatically after each software update of QFQ.

It's also possible to setup custom variables in `config.qfq.ini`.

E.g. to setup a contact address and reuse the information inside your installation do:

 * `config.qfq.in`::

		ADMINISTRATIVE_CONTACT = john@doe.com
		ADMINISTRATIVE_ADDRESS = John Doe, Hollywood Blvd. 1, L.A.
		ADMINISTRATIVE_NAME = John Doe

 * Somewhere in a `Form` or in `Report`::

      {{ADMINISTRATIVE_CONTACT:Y}}, {{ADMINISTRATIVE_ADDRESS:Y}}, {{ADMINISTRATIVE_NAME}}

.. _`ExceptionMaxLength`:

Exception for SECURITY_GET_MAX_LENGTH
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If it is necessary to use a GET variable which exceeds SECURITY_GET_MAX_LENGTH limit, name the variable with '_<num>' at
369
the end. E.g. `my_long_variable_130`. Such a variable has an allowed length of 130 chars. Access the a variable as
370
371
372
usual with the variable name: `{{my_long_variable_130:C:...}}`.

If you get a 'Page forbidden / not found' there might be some Webserver restrictions. E.g. the Typo3 example of `.htaccess`
in the Typo3 installation folder will forbid access to any extension documentation (which is a good idea on a productive
382
383
server). For a development server instead, deactivate the forbid rule of 'documentation'. In `.htaccess` (snippet from
Typo3 7.6 _.htaccess): ::
384

385
386
  production:   RewriteRule (?:typo3conf/ext|typo3/sysext|typo3/ext)/[^/]+/(?:Configuration|Resources/Private|Tests?|Documentation|docs?)/ - [F]

SIPs
----

The following is a technical background information. Not needed to just use QFQ.

The SIPs are uniq timestamps, created/registered on the fly for a specific browser session (=user). Every SIP is
registered on the server (= stored in a PHP Session) and contains one or more key/value pairs. The key/value pairs never leave
the server. The SIPs will be used:

* to protect values not to be spoofed by anyone,
* to protect values not to be altered by anyone,
* to grant access, e.g.:

  * load and save forms,
  * upload files,
  * download files,
  * PHP AJAX pages.

SIPs becomes invalid, as soon as the current browser session is destroyed. The client (= user) can't manipulate the content
of SIPs - it's only possible to reuse already registered SIPs by the user, who already owns the session.
413
414
415
416
417

Access privileges
-----------------

The Typo3 FE Groups can be used to implement access privileges. Such groups are assigned to
418

419
420
421
422
423
424
425
* Typo3 FE users,
* Typo3 pages,
* and/or Typo3 content records (e.g. QFQ records).

This will be used for general page structure privileges.

A `record base` privileges controlling (e.g. which user can edit
426
427
which person record) will be implicit configured, by the way that records are viewable / editable (or not) through
SQL in the specific QFQ tt-content statements.

Insert one or more QFQ content elements on a Typo3 page. Specify column and language per content record as wished.

The title of the QFQ content element will not be rendered. It's only visible in the backend for orientation.

  * File is relative to the extension directory or absolute (starting with '/').
  * Content: SQL queries and timestamp, formName/formId, fe_user, success, affected rows, newly created record
    id's and accessed from IP.
  * The global setting can be overwritten by defining `sqlLog` inside of a QFQ tt-content record.

  * *all*: logs every SQL statement.
  * *modify*: logs only statements who might potentially change data.
  * *error*: logs only queries which generate SQL errors.
  * *none*: no query logging at all.
  * The global setting can be overwritten by defining `sqlLogMode` inside of a QFQ tt-content record.

* *SHOW_DEBUG_INFO = [yes|no|auto],[download]*

  If active, displays additional information in the Frontend (FE). This is typically helpful during development.

  * *yes*:

    * Form:

      * For every internal link/button, show tooltips with decoded SIP on mouseover.
521
      * Shows an 'Edit form'-button (wrench symbol) on a form. The link points to the T3 page with the :ref:`form-editor`.

    * *SHOW_DEBUG_INFO = no*   (no BE session)

534
535
536
  * *download*:

    * During a download (especially by using wkhtml), temporary files are not deleted automatically. Also the
537
      `wkhtmltopdf` and `pdftk` commandlines will be logged to `SQL_LOG`_. Use this only to debug problems on download.

.. _REDIRECT_ALL_MAIL_TO:

* *REDIRECT_ALL_MAIL_TO=john@doe.com*

  * During the development, it might be helpful to configure a 'catch all' email address, which QFQ uses as the final receiver
    instead of the original intended one.

  * The setting will:

    * Replace the 'To' with the configured one.
    * Clear 'CC' and 'Bcc'
    * Write a note and the original configured receiver at the top of the email body.

.. _variables:

Variables
---------

Most fields of a form or report specification might contain:

* ''constants'' (=strings), this is the standard use case.
* ''variables'' retrieved from the stores (see below),
* ''SQL statements'' (limited set of),
* or any combination of the above.

* A variable (or SQL) statement is surrounded by curly braces:

  *{{VarName[:<store / prio>[:<sanitize class>[:<escape>]]]}}*

* Example:

  *{{r}}*

  *{{index:FS}}*

  *{{name:FS:alnumx:s}}*

  *{{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id=1234}}*

  *{{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id={{r}} }}*

  *{{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id={{key1:C:alnumx}} }}*

* Leading and trailing spaces inside curly braces are removed.

  * *{{ SELECT "Hello World"   }}* acts as *{{SELECT "Hello World"}}*
  * *{{ varname   }}* acts as *{{varname}}*


* There are several stores, from where to retrieve the value. If a value is not found in one store, the next store is searched,
  until a value is found or there are no more stores available.
* If anywhere along the line an empty string is found, this **is** a value: therefore, the search will stop.
* If no value is found, the value is an <empty string>.

URL Parameter
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* URL (=GET) Parameter can be used in *forms* and *reports* as variables.
* If a value violates a parameter sanitize class, the value becomes an empty string.

599

600
601
602
Escape
^^^^^^

603
604
Variables used in SQL Statements might cause trouble by using: NUL (ASCII 0), \\n, \\r, \\, ', ", and Control-Z.

605
To protect the web application the following `escape` types are available:
606

607
608
609
610
611
612
	* 'm' - `real_escape_string() <http://php.net/manual/en/mysqli.real-escape-string.php>`_ (m = mysql)
	* 'l' - LDAP search filter values will be escaped: `ldap-escape() <http://php.net/manual/en/function.ldap-escape.php>`_ (LDAP_ESCAPE_FILTER).
	* 'L' - LDAP DN values will be escaped. `ldap-escape() <http://php.net/manual/en/function.ldap-escape.php>`_ (LDAP_ESCAPE_DN).
	* 's' - single ticks will be escaped. str_replace() of ' against \\'.
	* 'd' - double ticks will be escaped: str_replace() of " against \\".
	* '-' - no escaping.
613

614
615
616
617
* The `escape` type is defined by the fourth parameter of the variable. E.g.: `{{name:FE:alnumx:m}}` (m = mysql).
* It's possible to combine different `escape` types, they will be processed in the order given. E.g. `{{name:FE:alnumx:Ls}}` (L, s).
* Escaping is typically necessary for SQL or LDAP queries.
* Be careful when escaping nested variables. Best is to escape **only** the most outer variable.
618
619
620
* In `config.qfq.ini`_ a global `ESCAPE_TYPE_DEFAULT` can be defined. The configured escape type applies to all substituted
  variables, who do not contain a *specific* escape type.
* Additionally a `defaultEscapeType` can be defined per `Form` (separate field in the Form Editor). This overwrites the
621
622
  global definition of `config.qfq.ini`. By default, every `Form.defaultEscapeType` = 'c' (=config), which means the settin
  in `config.qfq.ini`_.
623
* To suppress a default escape type, define the `escape type` = '-' on the specific variable. E.g.: `{{name:FE:alnumx:-}}`.
624
625
626
627

Sanitize class
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

628
* All values in Store *C* (Client=Browser) and store *F* (Form) will be sanitized:
629
* All `predefined-variable-names`_ have a specific default sanitize class. For these variables, it's not necessary
630
631
632
633
634
635
636
637
  to specify a sanitize class.
* All other variables (Store: C, F) get by default the sanitize class defined in the corresponding form. If not defined
  the default class is 'digit'.
* A default sanitize class can be overwritten by individual definition: *{{a:C:all}}*

Security
========

All values passed to QFQ will be:

664
665
666
667
668
669
670
671
672
673
674
675
676
677
678
679
680
681
682
* Checked against max. length and allowed content, on the client and on the server side. On the server side, the check
  happens before any further processing. The 'length' and 'allowed' content is specified per `FormElement`. 'alnumx' is the
  default allowed content for those. Violating the rules will stop the 'save record' process (Form) or result in an empty value (Report).

* Only elements defined in the `Form` definition or requested by `Report` will be processed.

* UTF8 normalized (normalizer::normalize) to unify different ways of composing characters. It's more a database interest
  to work with unified data.

SQL statements are typically fired as `prepared statements` with separated variables.
Further *custom* SQL statements will be defined by the webmaster - those do not use `prepared statements` and might be
affected by SQL injection. To prevent SQL injection, every variable can be escaped with `mysqli::real_escape_string` by
defining the `escape` modifier `m`.

**QFQ notice**:

* Variables passed by the client (=Browser) are untrusted and use the default sanatize class 'digit' (if nothing else is
  specified). If alpha characters are submitted, the content violates `digit` and becomes therefore empty - there is no
  error message. Best is to always use SIP or digits.
683
684
685
686

Get Parameter
-------------

687
**QFQ security restriction**:
688

689
690
* GET parameter might contain urlencoded content (%xx). Therefore all GET parameter will be processed by 'urldecode()'.
  As a result a text like '%nn' in GET variables will always be decoded. It's not possible to transfer '%nn' itself.
691
* GET variables are limited to SECURITY_GET_MAX_LENGTH chars - any violation will stop QFQ.
692
693
694
695

Post Parameter
--------------

696
Per `FormElement` (HTML input) the default is to `htmlspecialchars()` the input. This means &<>'" will be encoded as htmlentity
697
and saved as a htmlentity in the database. In case any of these characters (e.g. for HTML tags) are
698
699
700
required, the encoding can be disabled per FormElement: `encode=none` (default is `specialchar`).

During Form load, htmlentities are decoded again.
701
702
703
704

$_SERVER
--------

705
All $_SERVER vars are htmlentities encoded (all, not only specialchars!) .
706
707
708
709

Honeypot
--------

710
711
Every QFQ Form contains 'honeypot'-HTML input elements (HTML: hidden & readonly). Which of them to use is configured in
`config.qfq.ini`_ (default:   'username', 'password' and 'email'). On every start of QFQ (form, report, save, ...),
712
713
714
715
716
these variables are tested if they are non-empty. In such a case a probably malicous bot has send the request and the
request will not be processed.

If any of the default configured variable names are needed (which will never be the case for QFQ), an explicit variable name
list have to be configured in `config.qfq.ini`_.
717

718
**QFQ security restriction**:
719

720
* The honeypot variables can't be used in GET or POST as regular HTML input elements - any values of them will terminate QFQ.
721
722
723
724

Violation
---------

725
On any violation, QFQ will sleep SECURITY_ATTACK_DELAY seconds (`config.qfq.ini`_) and than exit the running PHP process.
726
727
A detected attack leads to a complete white (=empty) page.

728
If SECURITY_SHOW_MESSAGE = true (`config.qfq.ini`_), at least a message is displayed after the delay.
729

730
731
Client Parameter via SIP
------------------------
732
733

Links with URL parameters, targeting to the local website, are typically SIP encoded. Instead of transferring the parameter
734
735
as part of the URL, only one uniqe GET parameter 's' is appended at the link. The parameter 's' is uniq (equal to a
timestamp) for the user. Assigned variables are stored as a part of the PHP user session on the server.
736
737
738
739
Two users might have the same value of parameter 's', but the content is completely independet.

Variables needed by Typo3 remains on the link and are not 'sip-encoded'.

740
741
.. _`SecureDirectFileAccess`:

742
743
744
745
746
747
748
749
750
751
752
Secure direct fileaccess
------------------------

If the application uploads files, mostly it's not necessary and often a security issue, to offer a direct download of
the uploaded files. Best is to create a directory, e.g. `fileadmin/protected` and deny direct access via webbrowser to it.
E.g. for Apache set a htaccess rule: ::

		<Directory /var/www/html/fileadmin/protected>
			Require all denied
		</Directory>

753
754
**Important**: all QFQ uploads should then save files in or below such a directory.

755
756
To offer download of those files, use the reserved columnname '_download':`download`_ or variants.

757
**Important**: To protect the installation against executing of uploaded malicious script code, disable PHP for the final upload
758
directory. E.g. `fileadmin`: ::

759

760
		<Directory "/var/www/html/fileadmin>
Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
761
762
763
			php_admin_flag engine Off
		</Directory>

764
765
This is in general a good security improvement for directories with user supplied content.

766
767
768
769
File upload
-----------

By default the mime type of every uploaded file is checked against a whitelist of allowed mime types. The mime type of
770
771
772
773
a file can be (easily) faked by an attacker. This check is good to handle regular user file upload for specific file types. To
prevent attacks against uploading and executing malicous code this won't help.

Intstead prohibit the execution of user contributed files by the webserver config (`SecureDirectFileAccess`_).

* Hint: Preferable, parameter should be submitted by SIP, not by Client (=URL).

  * Warning: Data submitted via 'Client' can be easily spoofed and altered.
  * Best: Data submitted via SIP never leaves the server, cannot be spoofed or altered by the user.
  * SIPs can _only_ be defined by using *Report*. Inside of *Report* use columns 'Link' (with attribute 's'), 'page?' or 'Page?'.

* Used for:

  * *FormElements* who will be rerendered, after a parent *FormElement* has been changed by the user.
  * *FormElement* actions, before saving the form.
  * Values will be sanitized by the class configured in corresponding the *FormElement*. By default, the sanitize class is `alnumx`.

SQL Statement
-------------

* The detection of an SQL command is case *insensitive*.
* Leading  whitespace will be skipped.
* The following commands are interpreted as SQL commands:

  * SELECT
  * INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, REPLACE, TRUNCATE
  * SHOW, DESCRIBE, EXPLAIN, SET

* A SQL Statement might contain parameters, including additional SQL statements. Inner SQL queries will be executed first.
* All variables will be substituted one by one from inner to outer.
* Maximum recursion depth: 5 (a recursion depth of 2 is sometimes used for mailing with templates, 3 and more probably confuses too much and is therefore not practicable, but supported until depth of 5)
* The number of variables inside an input field or a SQL statement is not limited.
* A resultset of a SQL statement will be imploded over all: concat all columns of a row, concat all rows - there is no glue string.

* Example::

  {{SELECT id, name FROM Person}}
  {{SELECT id, name, IF({{feUser}}=0,'Yes','No')  FROM Vorlesung WHERE sem_id={{keySemId:Y}} }}
  {{SELECT id, city FROM Address AS adr WHERE adr.pId={{SELECT id FROM Account AS acc WHERE acc.name={{feUser}} }} }}

* Special case for SELECT input fields. To deliver a result array specify an '!' before the SELECT: ::

   {{!SELECT ...}}

  * This is only possible for the outermost SELECT.

* *typeAheadLimit*: there might be a hard limit on the server side (e.g. 100) - which can't be extended.
1155
1156
* *ldapUseBindCredentials* is only necessary if `anonymous` access is not possible. RDN and password has to be configured in
  `config.qfq.ini`.

.. _LDAP_Typeahead:

Typeahead (TA)
--------------

*Typeahead* offers continous searching of a LDAP directoy by using a regular *FormElement* of type *text*.
The *FormElement.parameter*=*typeAheadLdap* will trigger LDAP searches on every user **keystroke**
(starting after *typeAheadMinLength* keystrokes) for the current *FormElement* - this is different from *dynamicUpdate*
(triggered by leaving focus of an input element). Typeahead delivers a list of elements.

* *FormElement.parameter.typeAheadLdap* - activate the mode *Typeahead* - no value is needed, the existence is suffucient.
* *Form.parameter* or *FormElement.parameter*:

  * *ldapServer* = `directory.example.com`
  * *ldapBaseDn* =  `ou=Addressbook,dc=example,dc=com`
1173
  * *typeAheadLdapSearch* = `(|(cn=*?*)(mail=*?*))`

All fetched LDAP values will be formatted with:
* *typeAheadLdapValuePrintf*, shown to the user in a drop-down box and
1180
* *typeAheadLdapIdPrintf*, which represents the final data to save.

1182
1183
The `id/value` translation is compareable to a regular select drop-down box with id/value pairs.
Only attributes, defined in *typeAheadLdapValuePrintf* / *typeAheadLdapIdPrintf* will be fetched from the LDAP directory.

To examine all possible values of an LDAP server, use the commandline tool `ldapsearch`. E.g.::

  ldapsearch -x -h directory.example.com -L -b ou=Addressbook,dc=example,dc=com "(mail=john.doe@example.com)"

All occurences of a '?' in *ldapSearch* will be replaced by the user data typed in via the text-*FormElement*.
The typed data will be escaped to fullfill LDAP search limitations.
1190
Regular *Form* variables might be used on all parameter and will be evaluated during form load (!) - *not* at the time when
Carsten  Rose's avatar

1191
1192
the user types something.

1193
1194
1195
1196
1197
Pedantic
^^^^^^^^

In case the typed value (technically this is the value of the *id*, latest in the moment when loosing the focus) have
to be a valid (= exist on the LDAP server), the *typeAheadPedantic* mode can be activated.
1198
If the user typed something and that is not a valid *id*, the client (=browser) will delete the input when loosing the focus.
1199
To identify the exact *id*, an additional search filter is necessary: `ypeAheadLdapSearchPrefetch` - see next topic.
1200
1201
1202
1203

* *Form.parameter* or *FormElement.parameter*:

  * *typeAheadPedantic*

1210
1211
1212
1213

Prefetch
^^^^^^^^

After 'form load' with an existing record, the user epects to see the previous saved data. In case there is an *id* to
*value* translation, the *value* does not exist in the database, instead it has to be fetched again dynamically from the
LDAP server. A precise LDAP query has to be defined to force this:

* *Form.parameter* or *FormElement.parameter*:

1214
1215
  * *typeAheadLdapSearchPrefetch* = `(mail=?)`

1216
1217
This situation also applies in *pedantic* mode to verify the user input after each change.

1218
1219
1220
PerToken
^^^^^^^^

1221
1222
1223
Sometimes a LDAP server only provides attributes like 'sn' and 'givenName', but not 'displayName' or another practial
combination of multiple attributes - than it is difficult to search for 'firstname' *and* (=human AND) 'lastname'.
E.g. 'John Doe', results to search like `(|(sn=*John Doe*)(givenName=*John Doe*))` which will be probably always be empty.
1224
Instead, the user input has to be splitted in token and the search string has to repeated for every token.
1225

1226
1227
1228
1229
* *Form.parameter* or *FormElement.parameter*:

  * *typeAheadLdapSearchPerToken* - no value needed.

1230
1231
This will repeat the search string per token.

1232
1233
1234
E.g.::

   User search string: X Y
1235
1236
1237
   Ldap search string: (|(a=*?*)(b=*?*))

   Result: (& (|(a=*X*)(b=*X*)) (|(a=*Y*)(b=*Y*))
1238

1239
1240
Attention: this option is only usefull in specific environments. Only use it, if it is really needed. The query becomes
much more cpu / IO intensive.

.. _Fill_LDAP_STORE:

Fill STORE LDAP (FSL)
---------------------

1248
Before processing a *FormElement*, an optional configured FSL-action loads **one** record from a LDAP directory and stores
1249
1250
1251
the named attributes in STORE_LDAP. If the LDAP search query selects more than one record, only the first record is processed.
The attributes names always becomes lowercase (PHP implentation detail on get_ldap_entries()) in the store. To make
accessing STORE_LDAP easily, the keys are implemented case insensitive for this specific store. FLS is triggered during *Form*-...

* load,
* dynamic update,
* save.

The FLS happens *before* the main *FormElement* processing starts. Therefore the fetched LDAP data (specified by *ldapAttributes*),
are available via `{{<attributename>:L:allbut:s}}` during the regular *FormElement* processing. Take care to specify
a sanatize class and optional escaping on further processing of those data.

Important: LDAP access might slow down the *Form* processing on load, update or save! The timeout (default: 3 seconds) have
1261
 to be multiplied by the number of accesses. E.g. a broken LDAP connection and 3 *FormELements* with *FSL*

 results to 9 seconds delay on save. Also be prepared not to receive the expected data.

Form
====

* Forms will be created by using the *QFQ Form Editor* on the Typo3 frontend (HTML form).
1280
1281
* The Formeditor itself consist of two predefined QFQ forms: *form* and *formElement* - these forms are often updated
  during the installation of new QFQ versions.
1282
1283
1284
1285
1286
1287
1288
1289
1290
1291
* Every form consist of a) a *Form* record and b) multiple *FormElement* records.
* A form is assigned to a  *table*. Such a table is called the *primary table* for this form.
* There are three types of forms which can roughly categorized into:

  * *Simple* form: the form acts on one record, stored in one table.

    * The form will create necessary SQL commands for insert, update and delete (only primary record) automatically.

  * *Advanced* form: the form acts on multiple records, stored in more than one table.

1292
    * Fields of the primary table acts like a *simple* form, all other fields have to be specified with *action/afterSave* records.
1293
1294
1295
1296
1297
1298

  * *Multi* form: the form acts simultanously on more than one record. All records use the same *FormElements*.

    * The *FormElements* are defined as a regular *simple* / or *advanced* form, plus a SQL Query, which selects and
      iterates over all records. Those records will be loaded at the same time.

* Form mode: The parameter 'r' (given via URL or via SIP) decide if the form is in mode:

  * `New`:

    * Missing parameter 'r' or 'r=0'
    * On form load, no record is displayed.
    * Saving the form creates a new primary record.
    * E.g.: `http://example.com/index.php?id=home&form=Person`  or `http://example.com/index.php?id=home&form=Person&r=0`

  * `Edit`:

    * Parameter 'r>0'
    * On form load, the specified record (<tablename>.id= <r>) will be loaded and displayed.
    * Saving the form will update the existing record.
    * E.g.: `http://example.com/index.php?id=home&form=Person&r=123`

* Display a form:

  * Create a QFQ tt_content record on a Typo 3 page.
  * Inside the QFQ record: `form  = <formname>`. E.g.:

    * Static: `form = Person`
    * Dynamic: `form  = {{form:S}}`  (the left `form` is a keyword for QFQ, the right `form` is a free chooseable variable name)

  * With the `Dynamic` option, it's easily possible to use one Typo3 page and display different forms on that specific
    page. This is nice to configure few Typo 3 pages. The disadvantage is that the user might loose the navigation.

permitNew & permitEdit
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Depending on `r`, the following access permission will be taken:

* `r=0` - permitNew
* `r>0` - permitEdit


+------------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Option     | Description                                                                                       |
+============+===================================================================================================+
| sip        | The parameter 'form' and 'r' must be supplied via SIP or hard coded in the QFQ tt_content record. |
+------------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| logged_in  | The form will only be shown if the current User is logged in as a FE User                         |
+------------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| logged_out | The form will only be shown if the current User is *not* logged in as a FE User                   |
+------------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| always     | No access restriction, the form will always be shown                                              |
+------------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| never      | The form will never be shown                                                                      |
+------------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+


* `sip` is *always* the preferred way. With 'sip' it's not necessary to differ between logged in or not, cause the SIP
   only  exist and is only valid, if it's created via QFQ/report earlier. This means 'creating' the SIP implies
   'access granted'. The grant will be revoked when the QFQ session is destroyed - this happens when a user loggs out or
   the webbrowser is closed.

* `logged_id` / `logged_out`: for forms which might be displayed without a SIP, but maybe on a protected or even unprotected
  page. *The option is probably not often used.*

* `always`: such a form is always allowed to be loaded.

  * `permitNew=always`: Public accessible forms (e.g. for registration) will allow users to fill and save
    the form.

  * `permitEdit=always`: Public accessible forms will allow users to update existing data. This
    is dangerous, cause the URL paramater (recordId) 'r' might be changed by the user (URL manipulating) and therefore
    the user might see and/or change data from other users. *The option is probably not often used.*

* `never`: such a form is not allowed to be loaded.

  * `permitNew=never`: Public accessible forms. It's not possible to create new records.

  * `permitEdit=none`: Public accessible forms. It's not possible to update records.


1429
1430
1431
1432
1433
showButton
^^^^^^^^^^

Display or hide the button `new`, `delete`, `close`, `save`.

1434
* *new*: Creates a new record. If the form needs any special parameter via SIP or Client (=browser), hide this 'new' button - the necessary parameter are not provided.

1439
1440
1441
1442
1443
1444
1445
1446
1447
* *delete*: This either deletes the current record only, or (if defined via action *FormElement* 'before Delete' ) any specified subrecords.
* *close*: Close the current form. If there are changes, a popup opens and ask to save / close / cancel. The last page from the history will be shown.
* *save*: Save the form.

* Default: show all buttons.

.. _form-parameter:

parameter
^^^^^^^^^

* The following parameter are optional and can be configured in the *Form.parameter* field.

If specified and non empty, display a regular submit button at the bottom of the page with the given text.
This gives the form a ordinary HTML-form look'n' feel. With this option, the standard buttons on the top right border
should be hided to not confuse the user.

extraDeleteForm
'''''''''''''''

Depending on the database definition, it might be necessary to delete the primary record *and* corresponding slave records.
To not repeat such 'slave record delete definition', an 'extraDeleteForm' can be specified. If the user opens a record
in a form and clicks on the 'delete' button, a defined 'extraDeleteForm'-form will be used to delete primary and slave
records instead of using the current form.
E.g. if there are multiple different forms to work on the same table, all of theses forms might reference to the same
'extraDeleteForm'-form. This simplifies the maintenance.

The 'extraDeleteForm' parameter might be specified for a 'form' and/or for 'subrecords'

.. _form-mode-readonly:

Global Form mode 'readonly'
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''

The form.parameter setting `mode=readonly` will switch the whole form into a `readonly` mode, which is a fast way to use
an existing *Form* just to display the form data, without a possibility for the user to change any data of the form.
The mode can be statically defined in the *Form.parameter* field via::

    mode=readonly

Or dynamically, e.g. via::

    mode={{formModeGlobal:S:alnumx}}

Such variant might be called via SIP. The following shows the same *Form* in the `regular` mode and second in `readonly` mode::

	10.sql = SELECT CONCAT('from&form=person&r=', p.id) as _Pagee, CONCAT('from&form=person&formModeGlobal=readonly&r=', p.id) as _Pagee FROM Person AS p

FormElements
------------

* Each *form* contains one or more *FormElement*.
* The *FormElements* are divided in three categories:

  * :ref:`class-container`
  * :ref:`class-native`
  * :ref:`class-action`

* Ordering and grouping: Native *FormElements* and Container-Elements (both with feIdContainer=0) will be ordered by 'ord'.
* Inside of a container, all nested elements will be displayed.

* Additional options to a *FormElement* will be configured via the *FormElement.parameter* field (analog to *Form.parameter*

Class: Container
----------------

* Pills are containers for 'fieldset' *and* / *or* 'native' *FormElements*.
* Fieldsets are containers for 'native' *FormElements*.
* TemplateGroups are containers for 'fieldset' *and* / *or* 'native' *FormElements*.

Type: fieldset
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* Native *FormElements* can be assigned to a fieldset.
* FormElement settings:

  * *name*: technical name, used as HTML identifier.
  * *label*: Shown title of the fieldset.

Type: pill
^^^^^^^^^^

* Pill is synonymous for a tab. A pill looks like a tab.
* Pills are only available with mode render='bootstrap'.
* If there is at least one pill defined, every native *FormElement* needs to be assigned to a pill or to a fieldset.
* If there is at least one pill defined, every fieldset needs to be assigned to a pill.

* FormElement settings:

  * *name*: technical name, used as HTML identifier.

.. _class-native:

Type: templateGroup
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

*TemplateGroups* will be used to create a series of grouped (by the given *templateGroup*) *FormElements*.

1667
*FormElements* can be assigned to a *templateGroup*. These *templateGroup* will be rendered upto *n*-times. On 'form load'

only a single (=first) copy of the *templateGroup* will be shown. Below the last copy of the *templateGroup* an 'add'-button is
shown. If the user click on it, an additional copy of the *templateGroup* is displayed. This can be repeated up to
*templateGroup.maxLength* times. Also, the user can 'remove' previously created copies by clicking on a remove button near
beside every *templateGroup*. The first copy of a templateGroup can't be removed.

* FormElement settings:

  * *label*: Shown in the FormElement-editor *container* field.
  * *maxLength*: Maximum number of copies of the current *templateGroup*. Default: 5.
  * *bsLabelColumn*, *bsInputColumn*, *bsNoteColumn*: column widths for row with the 'Add' button.
  * *parameter*:

    * *tgAddClass*: Class of the 'add' button. Default: `btn btn-default`.
    * *tgAddText*: Text shown on the button. Default: `Add`.
    * *tgRemoveClass*: Class of the 'remove' button. Default: `btn btn-default`.
    * *tgRemoveText*: Text shown on the button. Default: `Remove`.
1684
1685
    * *tgClass*: Class wrapped around every copy of the *templateGroup*.
      E.g. the class `qfq-child-margin-top` adds a margin between two copies of the *templateGroup*. Default: empty
1686

1690
1691
1692

Multiple *templateGroups* per form are allowed.

The name of the native FormElements, inside the templateGroup, which represents the effective table columns, uses the placeholder
`%d`. E.g. the columns `grade1`, `grade2`, `grade3` needs a *FormElement.name* = `grade%d`. The counting will always start with 1.
The placeholder `%d` can also be used in the *FormElement.label*

Column: primary record
''''''''''''''''''''''

If the columns `<name>%d` are real columns on the primary table, saving and delete (=empty string) are done automatically.
E.g. if there are upto five elements `grade1, ..., grade5` and the user inputs only the first three, the remaining will be set
to an empty string.

Column: non primary record
''''''''''''''''''''''''''

Additional logic is required to load, update, insert and/or delete slave records.

Load
;;;;

On each native *FormElement* of the *templateGroup* define a SQL query in the *FormElement.value* field. The query has to
select **all** values of all possible existing copies of the *FormElement* - therefore the exclamation mark is necessary.
Also define the order. E.g. *FormElement.value*::

   {{!SELECT street FROM Address WHERE personId={{id}} ORDER BY id}}

Insert / Update / Delete
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

Add an *action* record, type='afterSave', and assign the record to the given *templateGroup*.

In the parameter field define: ::

		slaveId = {{SELECT id FROM Address WHERE personId={{id}} ORDER BY id LIMIT %D,1}}
		sqlHonorFormElements = city%d, street%d
		sqlUpdate = {{UPDATE Address SET city='{{city%d:FE:alnumx:s}}', street='{{street%d:FE:alnumx:s}}'  WHERE id={{slaveId}} LIMIT 1}}
		sqlInsert = {{INSERT INTO Address (`personId`, `city`, `street`) VALUES ({{id}}, '{{city%d:FE:alnumx:s}}' , '{{street%d:FE:alnumx:s}}') }}
		sqlDelete = {{DELETE FROM Address WHERE id={{slaveId}} LIMIT 1}}

The `slaveId` needs attention: the placeholder `%d` starts always at 1. The `LIMIT` directive starts at 0 - therefore
use `%D` instead of `%d`, cause `%D` is always one below `%d` - but can **only** be used on the action element.
