HTML template

Estimated reading: 6 minutes 117 views

HTML template is responsive, automatically adapted to the client’s screen and rich of display capabilities.

After adding a template name and saving, the application will go to the template editor screen with the template in “Draft” mode.

HTML template is built from four nested components:

  • Page: The template contains one or more pages. Switching between the pages in the form is possible for the user using the navigation buttons at the bottom of the page.
  • Section: Each page contains one or more sections.
  • Row: Each row contains at least one column and up to three columns.
  • Column: A column may contain one or more controls.

At the top of the template editor is “Intro” section, that allows a Welcome message to be displayed in the form.

At the bottom of the form editor is “Outro” section, that allows the completion message to be displayed to the person filling out the form.

Below is an example of a template consisting of one page, in which one section includes four rows and three columns in each row.


Page


Template contains pages that the user can navigate through. It is recommended to use division into pages when the form is loaded with controllers, and we want to create a more pleasant experience when filling out the form. For each page in the template, you can apply a title and additional design options.

To enter the page’s options, click on the margin of the page, the page will have a light green background and a panel for the page’s options will open on the right.

Page titleInsert a textual title for the page.
ClassUsed by developers to generate additional options in the code.
Delete pageDeleting the page with all the components.

      Page design includes the following options:

      Title styleHeader 1 is the largest font and Header 4 is the smallest.
      Font colorSelect the color of the page title text.

                Rows and columns


                The template editor allows us to create a form that will automatically adjust to the size of the user’s screen.

                If we use only one column per row throughout the form the entire form, the form will be presented to the client as one column of the fields.

                If we use more than one column in a row, then:

                • If the client uses a large screen such as a tablet or a desktop computer, the controls will be displayed as they are displayed in the template.
                • If the client uses a narrow screen, for example a mobile phone, the controls in the column will be displayed in a column one after the other.

                • Display of the form on a tablet and a desktop computer.
                • Display of the form on a mobile phone.

                Intro


                Clicking on the “Intro” button at the top of the template entry will display the panel on the right.

                The “Hide Welcome screen” button will hide the rest of the parameters in the panel and will also hide the welcome screen for the client, so that the link to the form will go directly to the form itself.

                Hide Welcome screenWhen set to ON it will hide the rest of the parameters in the panel and will also hide the welcome screen for the client, so that the link to the form will go directly to the form itself.

                In the HTML template it is possible to hide any specific controllers from the preview and the final PDF by adding “pdf_hidden” class under the Developer tab.

                In this case fields with pdf_hidden class will be shown in client’s form to add the values and complete the form.

                But they will not be shown in the preview and in the final PDF after submission.
