Episerver forms: layouts or columns



I been thinking about implementing episerver forms on a site and I was wondering if anyone knows if you can create different layouts for episerver forms?

Example: a two column layout form where you have two contentareas where you can add form elements.

I tried creating a new block inheriting from elementblockbase with two contentareas and add that to the form elements contentarea but I was only allowed to add new blocks to those two areas and not form inputs even with allowedtypes elementblockbase added to property.

We could create duplicates of each input example : text, text 50%, textarea, textarea 50%, which render 50% inline inputs but i was hoping that there was a way of creating form layouts so we dont have to create duplicates of each input.

If you want the editor to decide whether to have one or two columns would suggest that you look at DisplayOptions.

Display Options is a very basic way to let the editor customize rendering of items in a ContentArea, so I suggest that you keep the names as basic as possible such as "Half width" and so on.
