Joget DX 8 Stable Released
The stable release for Joget DX 8 is now available, with a focus on UX and Governance.
Form Element is a type of plugin that is extensible via Joget's plugin architecture. Form Element is responsible for providing the end users form input elements to interact with.
There are many different form fields (i.e., TextField, SelectBox, Hidden Field, etc.) to choose from when you are designing your forms.
You can drag and drop them on your form canvas and then edit their properties.
Each form element has its own set of attributes, ID and Label attributes are common to most of them.
Figure 1: Text Field Properties
"Label" is the human-readable identifier for the form field.
The 'ID' in the property editor is a unique identifier.
Do not use the following reserved IDs on the form element's ID attribute:
Auto Generated IDs
Take note of the following IDs as these are automatically generated upon the creation of a new form. Please take note upon submission of the form in runtime, these fields will be updated automatically:
Recommended Naming Convention
We recommend using snake_case (i.e. first_name) as this is the standard database naming convention. The ID declared will be part of the database table column name.
This is a new feature in Joget DX 8.
The Form Builder now suggests an ID to an element based on the Label you have entered for that element. (Figure 2)
