My scout app's goal is to let users build a database of questions to then be asked on a form. I want them to be able to add new ones, edit, and delete the questions at runtime. So 2 forms, one for the questions & assoc tablePage, and one "live" form. This is a simple proof of concept.

The plan is to generate the "live" form fields and associated tablePage columns from the list of questions. However, it seems formdata and tabledata are generated pre-runtime. I am thus unable to get my sql bind bases to recognize custom fields and columns.

The class name of the anonymous class I'm creating ends up being "...$MainBox$1". From what I have observed, that fact renders my overriding efforts null && void. I have looked through a ton of the super, super super, even more super super class methods and variables and I'm at a loss as to what else I can set and how. As far as I can tell, trying to change the class name of the anonymous class would be some kind of post-compile hack if at all possible. Not into that.

The tablePage is currently set up with regular old columns, and the database is pre-populated. It shows up just fine, but the app hangs when attempting to open the form to edit a row.

"Cannot find output for 'ValueOutputToken[Prompt parsed ':Prompt', replaced ':Prompt' into]' in bind base."

I've seen this error before with typos in the field name. But in this case it is because the formdata doesn't have methods to access this field. Any ideas?

Anything would be useful. Thanks.

        protected void injectFieldsInternal(OrderedCollection<IFormField> fieldList) {
            //figured I'd try but I'm pretty sure this @FormData did nothing
	private IFormField createCustomField(String fieldName) {			
		return new AbstractStringField() {				
			public String classId() {                 //This method never gets called
				return fieldName;                 //Why?
			protected String getConfiguredLabel() {
				return fieldName;
			protected boolean getConfiguredVisible() {
				return false;

Well I figured it out. I wanted the built in way to try and stay update-proof, and I believe I found it. This is working.

public class FormsListService implements IFormsListService {

	public FormsListTablePageData getFormsListTableData(SearchFilter filter) {
		FormsListTablePageData pageData = new FormsListTablePageData();
		Object[][] rawPageData ="FORMS"));              
                          //DerbySql generates an SQL statement to select the whole table
		for (int i = 0; i < rawPageData.length; i++) {
			FormsListTableRowData r = pageData.addRow();
                                                                                           //set static columns
			r.setFormid((String) rawPageData[i][0]); 
			r.setProject((String) rawPageData[i][1]);
			r.setFormname((String) rawPageData[i][2]);
			for (int j = 3; j < rawPageData[i].length; j++) {                    //set custom columns
                                 r.setCustomValue(DerbySql.getColumns("FORMS").get(j), rawPageData[i][j]);   
		return pageData;
