Form fields

Form fields are required when designing new report types but can also be used for any non-measurement related data fields. These can be added to: locations, lines, nodes (not used in the UI), location-ports, groups. Form fields can consist of any of the following elements:

  • Text (1 line)

  • Text (multiple lines)

  • Select one from a list (select)

  • Select one from a list (radio)

  • Select one or more from a list (switch)

  • Select one or more from a list (checkbox)

  • File

  • Files

  • The key is the unique name given to this form field.

  • The name is the name that is shown in the application

Depending on the choice of form field type, additional options are available:

  • A form field value can be set to optional

  • Form field can be shown only when a certain condition is satisfied

  • Regular expression can enforce a structure of string input

  • Prefix is displayed on the left of the input box

  • Suffix is displayed on the right of the input box

  • Hint is the text displayed below the input box where you can enter text
