Field Types

A form consists of fields. These fields can be categorized by type. Formalicious is shipped with the most common field-types by default:

  • Checkboxes
  • Email
  • File
  • Number
  • Radiobuttons
  • Select
  • Text
  • Textarea

All these types have a Chunk associated with them. These can be found in the Elements-tree, below the Formalicious-category. These chunks are optimized for Bootstrap

All the required fields are implemented in Formalicious, but you can change these chunks to match your needs. It is recommended to duplicate and rename a field before changing it, because an update of Formalicious will override the original chunks.

Creating your own field type

All the fields necessary area available by default, but we offer creative freedom here. You can create your own types with your own chunks.

Step 1: Create the type

Create your type and enter a Name and Tpl. The Value Tpl field is only to determine your options for checkbox and radiobutton fields.

The Validation field can be used to use FormIt validators.

In the example below we create a field called "Special email", with the template "specialEmailTpl":

Step 2: Create the associated chunk

We specified the chunk called "specialEmailTpl". This chunk is a regular FormIt-chunk. Please check the FormIt tutorials for all your options.

Below is an example of our "Special email Tpl" (copy of emailTpl):

And that's it, you're all set!
