I have successfully built the front end of my first module. Its a simple module that does currency conversions.

I need to create a simple control panel page for my module that allows me to add a decimal number into three different fields which is saved in the database (already have the database created on install of module).

I am a complete newbie, so wondering if anyone can give me an idea of how to create a basic form that submits to the database as I have been unable to find anywhere that shows an easy to understand version.

  • Hi Yuri. Thanks. I already read through this dozens of times, but cant figure out how to get the control panel part. I have managed the front end, but the control panel seems much more complicated. I am looking for a stripped down simple form which I could then learn from.
