Date Form Field Properties

The Date Form Field has the following properties:

  • Component Id - Sets the name of the Form Field Component in the app. The Component Id can be referenced using JavaScript to add more functionality to the app as needed.

    Pro Tip: It is a best practice to use only letters without spaces for the Component Id. Symbols, spaces, and numbers are not recommended.
  • Connected Data Field - Select the Connected Data Field from the dropdown. Columns must be set up previously in the Connected Data Source in Table Builder to appear in this list. 
  • Label Text - Sets the text that appears in the Form Field. 
  • Required Input - Toggles on or off to make the Form Field a required field to submit the Form.  
  • Half Width - Toggles on or off to determine if the Form Field spans the full width of the Form or only half of the form's width.
