Form [field] Design

Open Source

This section is about Form Builder in Bonita Studio, which is used to create and configure fields in forms, that is:

  • how fields will be arranged in a form (using a grid)
  • what type of data a field will take
  • the characteristics of a field (mandatory, read only, etc)
  • how a field will treat data (initial value, data manipulation, saving data, etc)
  • how fields can be related to one another (grouped, contingent, etc)

In other words, it is used to design how a user will input data into forms, (that is, in fields), and it explains how, behind each field, the process will treat/handle data

For overall form design and how to present forms to a user, see Web applications.
