Updated information: Got everything working on my form. The only problem is that when using multiinsert ... the form it's not inserting data ...
With a normal form and using bootstrap eveythings works fine (not test with dependent dropdown select fields)

... the issue here is when i try to use dependent drop down. I've being testing with a normal form (not using bootstrap) and with multi insert it's not working even with normal text fields ..

Hello Manuel,
It is not really clear what are you doing exactly ... it does not matter if you are using dropdowns, dynamic dropdowns or dependent dropdowns. The multi insert tutorial explains who to do this, and it works with any field.
Please provide a link to your page, where we can check what is wrong.

Hm, looking at your code it does not seem you are following the tutorial - the code on your page does not look right:

The form on your page was not built using the tutorial i sent in previous post - i see this in the code.
For now it is only possible to create multi insert/update forms with bootstrap 3 forms generator (as shown in the tutorial).

All of our form/table/paging tools are based on Bootstrap. For now we are not planning to release non-bootstrap ones.

My problem with bootstrap is because CSS Bootstrap overrides my own CSS. Is there a simple way to solve this. I use a template for generating my pages ...

Well, i don't know what your css is or what the css issues you have are, but indeed bootstrap 3 code should be used on pages based on bootstrap 3. Probably you can generate the form and then remove the bootstrap includes from the page and classes from the form/fields, then use the code generated in your site.

Thanks for the reply. Well, that is too much for me. Probably if you develop an extension that can be able to deal with this kind of issues maybe there's more people using bootstrap on their pages. That's only a sugestion ...
