Add a Standard Form Control to a Form

Use the Form Editor (accessed from within a Blueprint in CSM Administrator) to add a standard form control to a form.

Good to Know:

  • Standard form controls are highly configurable. You can add endless combinations to a form, then define how the controls look and behave on the form (example: Text, tooltip, size, color, border style, image, alignment, anchoring, layering, visibility, enabling/disabling, and tab order).
  • Button, link label, list box, and radio button controls have additional control properties (right-click and select Control Properties) that must be configured.
  • By default, most form controls acquire their text, color, border style, and background style properties from the defined Form Theme; however you can define your own properties, if needed.
  • See Form Editor Behaviors for tips on working with controls and the Form Editor.

To add a standard form control to a form (general):

  1. Open a form in the Form Editor.
  2. Drag-and-drop a standard control from the Standard control tree onto the form.
  3. Define properties for the control, if needed (Button, Link label, List Box, and Radio Button).
  4. (Optional) Define how the form control looks and behaves on the form.
  5. Publish the Blueprint to commit the changes, or save the Blueprint to continue making other changes.
