    Will the submitSuccess work for your requirements?

    Not really. As I understand it, the SubmitSuccess gets triggered when the edit form submits data to the server.

    What I want to do is much more interactive. The first field in the form is a select box that allows the user to choose which of several paths through the fields. Depending on its value I want to show / hide other fields on the form. This way on the fields needed for a specific action are shown. I would do that be enabling disabling the visibility of DIVs in the custom form.

    I know I can do this with a conventional submit form, but that would break the UI of the app. Still, if needs must, that is how I will go.

    Sounds like you want dependent() to show and hide fields based on a condition. I thought you meant div elements elsewhere on the page.

    You can do pretty much anything with "dependent". I didn't find too many good examples in the docs. So here is something from my own coding. You can also use "dependent" inside other Editor events to use it only while creating or editing. In that case don't forget to turn it off after finishing ("undependent").

    ctrEditor
        .dependent('ctr.automatic_prolongation', function (val, data, callback) {
            var self = ctrEditor;
            if (val == '1') {
                self.show(['ctr.prolongation_months', 'ctr.last_day_month']);
            } else {
                self.set({'ctr.prolongation_months': 0, 'ctr.last_day_month': 0})
                    .hide(['ctr.prolongation_months', 'ctr.last_day_month']);
            }
        })
        .on ( 'initCreate', function ( e ) {
            this.dependent('ctr.end_date', function (val, data, callback) {
                var self = ctrEditor;        
                ctrEndDateStandardDependencies(self);
            })
        })
        .on('close', function() {
            this.undependent('ctr.end_date');
        })

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    The pointer to "dependent" was what I needed. This rocks.
