Reset reset-button

This article contains content about theAllow Rich Text for Titlefeature, a pre-release feature. The pre-release feature is accessible only through our pre-release channel.

A reset button in an Adaptive Form is a button that allows users to clear or reset all the form fields to their default values. When the reset button is clicked, any data that has been entered into the form fields is deleted, and the fields return to their original state. The reset button is typically used as an alternative to the submit button and provides a way for users to start over if they have entered incorrect or unwanted data into the form.

  • Error Prevention: By using a reset button, users can avoid accidentally submitting incorrect data, which can lead to errors or processing issues.

  • Consistency: Including a reset button in a form provides consistency in user experience, as reset buttons are a common feature of forms.

  • Better Data Management: By using a reset button, the form data can be kept organized and accurate, as users are less likely to submit inconsistent or incorrect data.

Basic Tab

  • Name - You can identify a form component easily with its unique name both in the form and in the rule editor, but the name must not contain spaces or special characters.

  • Title - With its Title, you can easily identify a component in a form and by default, the title appears on top of the component. If you do not add a title, the name of the component is displayed instead of the title text.

  • Allow Rich Text for Title - This features enables users to format plain text titles, incorporating features like bold, italic, underlined text, various fonts, font sizes, colors, and additional option to enhance visual presentation and customization. It offers greater flexibility and creative control in making titles stand out within documents, websites, or applications.
    Upon selecting the checkbox for Allow Rich Text for Title , formatting options become visible to style the component’s title. To access all available formatting options, you can click on the Fullscreen icon tab.

    Rich text support

  • Bind Reference - A bind reference is a reference to a data element that is stored in an external data source and used in a form. The bind reference allows you to dynamically bind data to form fields, so that the form can display the most up-to-date data from the data source. For example, a bind reference can be used to display a customer’s name and address in a form, based on the customer’s ID entered into the form. The bind reference can also be used to update the data source with data entered into the form. In this way, AEM Forms enables you to create forms that interact with external data sources, providing a seamless user experience for collecting and managing data.

  • Mark as Unbound Form Element: Select the option to configure a form field not linked to any schema. This option allows you to save data without updating the data source. It also enables you to handle data in a custom way, separate from standard database integration.

  • Hide Component - Select the option to hide the component from the form. The component remains accessible for other purposes, such as using it for calculations in the Rule Editor. This is useful when you need to store information that doesn’t need to be seen or directly changed by the user.

  • Disable Component - Select the option to disable the component. The disabled component is not active or editable by the end user. The user can see the value of the field but cannot modify it. The component remains accessible for other purposes, such as using it for calculations in the Rule Editor.

Help Content Tab help-content

  • Short description - A short description is a brief text explanation that provides additional information or clarification about the purpose of a specific form field. It helps the user understand what type of data should be entered into the field and can provide guidelines or examples to help ensure that the information entered is valid and meets the desired criteria. By default, short descriptions remain hidden. Enable the Always show short description option to display it below the component.
  • Always show short description - Enable the option to display the Short description below the component.
  • Help text - Help text refers to additional information or guidance that is provided to the user to assist them in filling out a form field correctly. It appears when the user clicks the help icon (i) placed next to the component. Help text provides more detailed information than a form field’s label or placeholder text, and is designed to help the user understand the requirements or constraints of the field. It can also offer suggestions or examples to make filling out the form easier and more accurate.

Accessibility accessibility

Accessibility tab

Text for screen readers - Text for screen readers refers to additional text that is specifically intended to be read by assistive technologies, such as screen readers, used by visually impaired individuals. This text provides an audio description of the form field’s purpose, and can include information about the field’s title, description, name, and any relevant messages (Custom text). The screen reader text helps ensure that the form is accessible to all users, including those with visual impairments, and provides them with a complete understanding of the form field and its requirements.

Custom Properties

Custom Properties Dialog

Custom properties allows you to associate custom attributes (key-value pairs) to an Adaptive Form core component using the form template. The custom properties are reflected in the properties section of the headless rendition of the component. It allows creating dynamic form behavior that adapts based on the custom attributes values. For example, developers can design various renditions of a Headless Forms component for mobile, desktop, or web platforms, significantly enhancing the user experience across a wide array of devices.

  • Group Name: You can provide a name to identify the custom property group. You can add, delete, or rearrange multiple custom property groups. After adding the custom property group, you can see the following options:

    • Key-Value Pairs: You can add multiple custom property names and custom property values by clicking the Add button for each custom property group.

    • Delete: Tap or click to delete the custom property name and custom property value.

    • Rearrange: Tap or click and drag to rearrange the order of the custom property name and custom property value.
