To enable customization, click on the edit icon you get when hovering over the field. Or click on the Input Customization tab in right sidebar when the field is selected.
In the Input Customization section, you can customize the numeric input field in the following ways. In this section, you will find 2 portions:
- Default Fields. 2. Advanced Options
The basic customizations available for the text area input fields are as followed:
- Element Label: This is the text that users will see on the form for the input field. You can put any text here that helps to understand the purpose of that field.
- Label Placement: Determine the placement of the label, that you set previously, in respect to the input field. The available options are ‘Top’, ‘Left’, ‘Right’, ‘Default’. All of those are self-explanatory except the ‘Default’. What it means is, it will represent your global label placement settings.
- Admin Field Label: If you want to show a different label for your admin users when they view the form submissions you can configure that using this option. It doesn’t have any actual effect on the form rather only for administrative purposes.
- Placeholder: You can also have a placeholder by which users will perceive the field subject.
- Required: Determine whether the field could be empty or not when the user submits your form by choosing the appropriate option from here.
- Min Value: You can define a minimum value to be allowed in the input field. The users will not be allowed to put a smaller number than the defined value which is already set as a minimum number. Set the error message to be shown when a smaller number is submitted.
- Max Value: You can also define a maximum value which can not be exceeded by your users. Set the error message to be shown when a number exceeding the defined maximum value is submitted.
- Number Format: You can select the format of numbers allowed in this field. You have the option to use a comma or a dot as a decimal separator. Both EU and US-style with or without comma and dot is available to choose form.
