Label

The Label tool allows the form builder to create a header, or image, to help organize their form. This tool is very useful for embedding a logo, or providing reference text or images.

Properties

Caption text - The caption is used in most cases to ask the question. In others it may be a column heading. This is a required field. Please keep in mind that captions will wrap when form elements do not fit within the width of the screen. It is important to consider how your captions will be displayed. Captions on a larger screen might look perfect, but on a smaller device, they may be forced to wrap several times. In this situations, smaller captions should be used where possible.

Hint - Providing additional information on how a question should be answered can be achieved easily using the Hint option. The text for hints is smaller the caption. The maximum number of characters supported is 500, including spaces.

Data name - Since the data name is a required field, doForms will default the data name to the caption/label. If this field is blank doForms will provide a generic name with a sequential number. We recommend that you provide a descriptive data name that is easily identifiable. The data name is used throughout the system and non-descriptive names can make it difficult to select the item you need for example when performing a calculation.

Image - Enables you to select an image for the background of the tool. You can upload an image. Note: there is 1mb limit to the size of the image.

Image/Caption Justification - How the image or caption is aligned in the label; either to the left, centered, or to the right.

Hide
In mobile app Check this option if you wish to make the question invisible in the mobile app. You might want to do this so the mobile user cannot change the value, or if the value is being used in some intermediate calculation or logical expression.

in Data and Dispatch tabs Check this option if you wish to hide the question in the View Data and Dispatch tabs of the website.

In PDF and Print Check this option if you wish to hide the question in the View Data and Dispatch tabs of the website.

Appearance - doForms allows you to set a default set of appearance parameters. This eliminates the need for you to have to set colors and other parameters each time you add an element to your form. You can however override the default settings for any tool by simply picking the Custom option. You can also edit the default by clicking on the edit defaults option.

Remove Space - When selected the space Above or Below the tool is Removed. When styling the form this help provide continuity with the layout.

Action

Only display this question if
This is a very powerful option as it allows you basically hide form elements only exposing them if the answer to a question in your form meets the criteria you have set. For example if you have a choose one question with the answers yes and no than you can say only display this question if the answer to the choose one is equal to yes. You can even combine other criteria like and color is not equal to red. Being to hide fields unless they are needed makes form more user friendly.
