I just upgraded myProject to ZK8 , then I get an error message saying "SimpleForm Class Cannot be resolved to a type". I go to ZK8 Javadoc to check whether the SimpleForm class included in ZK8 and didn't find any.

in ZK7 I used isDirty() method in SimpleForm class to check whether the form has been modified. so how do I do to check the dirty state in ZK8? is there any workaround for it?

In know the implementation has changed a lot because you now the collections are also cached.

Looks like it's now with proxy.
This interface is what you need, and you can see what the subclasses are.

thanks for the reply chillworld, It's totally different approach in ZK8, I think I have to rewrite my code or stick with zk7 :(

I think if you the form in zul with form=, it's stays the same.

instead of using SimpleForm you can now create the form proxy using: ProxyHelper.createProxyIfAny

As Chill already stated: To check the dirty status, the returned form proxy object can be cast into org.zkoss.bind.proxy.FormProxyObject
