Upgrading Style Templates from earlier versions
Form styles created by coping ViewsFlash 6 or 7 styles will continue to work in ViewsFlash 8.
ViewsFlash 8 styles have been upgraded to show questionnaires in tablets like the iPad automatically. Older styles continue to work.
Some new functionality available in ViewsFlash 7 is not available with older form styles.
Specifically, generic field, the new method for User Authentication; and all the inline messaging functionality for displaying validation messages in the page, rather than as alerts.
To take advantage of this functionality, create a new style by making a copy of the Standard ViewsFlash 7 style, and apply to it the same changes that you applied to the ViewsFlash 6 style. Another way to do this is to compare your style with the original ViewsFlash 6 style, and apply the same changes to a copy of the ViewsFlash 7 style. When the process is finished and everythng has been tested, overwrite your existing style with the new one.
