## 1.56
- Consider the following table:

- db.define_table('cirlce',
-    db.Field('radius','double'),
-    db.Field('area','double'),
-    db.Field('modified_on','datetime'))

- now you can do:

##  add a comment in the forms
-"(this is a comment)"

##  do not show area in create/edit forms

-  ##  do not show now in display forms

##  automatically timestamp when record cretaed

##  automatically timestamp when record is modified

##  make the radius appear in bold in display and table
- value: B(value)

##  make a form that automatically computes area
- pi=3.1415
- form=SQLFOM(
- if form.accepts(request.vars,
- onvalidation=lambda form: form.vars.area=pi*form.vars.radius**2): ...

##  make a create form in two possible ways:
- form=SQLFORM(
- form=SQLFORM(,0)

##  make an update form in two possible ways:
- form=SQLFORM(,record)
- form=SQLFORM(,record_id)

##  make a display form in two possible ways:
- form=SQLFORM(,record,readonly=True)
- form=SQLFORM(,record_id,readonly=True)

##  so now you can do...

- form=SQLFORM(,request.args[-1])

- and you get a create form if the URL ends in /0, you get an update
- form if the URL ends in /[valid_record_id]

## you can also define once for all

- timestamp=SQLTable(None,'timestamp',
-             SQLField('created_on','datetime',
-                           writable=False,
-                 ,
-             SQLField('modified_on','datetime',
-                           writable=False,
-                 ,

## and use it in all your tables

- db.define_table('mytable',db.Field('somefield'),timestamp)
