Im looking at a requirement where there would be 2 editforms for a list.
The default one would be the standard edit form used to edit pretty much all the fields in the item.
The second one is a specific form used in certain circumstances to update only a couple of fields.
In my testing I have created a new Edit Form, called EditFormCustom, and it is not the default edit form. When I edit this form and add the two web parts, overlay and frontend, it goes through the motions of trying to run, and times out. When I click to close the overlay there is no DFFS setup button at the bottom of the form.
Does DFFS have a restriction that only allows it to work on the default forms?
This might not be the end of the world, because I am thinking that in order to do this type of thing with the restriction of only one editform, I could still achieve the same thing but passing a parameter to the form when calling it, that I extract from the URL and then expose the tabs that are required for that parameter.
Would this be the correct/recommended approach to this scenario?
