UI Widgets

Introduction

Easy Forms - UI Widgets

UI widgets are custom controls that improve the visualization of our Standard HTML5 fields. For example, we can use the "International Telephone Input" widget to display a Dropdown with flags and country codes as dynamic placeholders. Of course, we can customize them by making use of the Form Builder's custom attributes.

How to use a UI Widget

Using UI widgets is pretty easy, just go to Form Settings > UI Settings and select the UI widget you want to use in your form.

For example, we are going to select the "International Telephone Input" widget and click Save.

Take into account that some widgets require to add a Css Class to your Form Field. For others, like in our previous example, we only need to activate them to display them in the form.

How to configure a UI Widget

To configure the UI Widget we want to use, we need to go to the Form Builder > Field Settings > Custom Attributes.

In our example, the International Telephone Inputs displays the User country flag. For this example, we are going to customize this behavior to display the flag of Great Britain. For this we are going to add the following custom attribute:

  • Attribute: data-initial-country
  • Value: gb

And, Save all.
