Input Form Widget

Input Form Widget

The Input form allows users to submit values to variables through a form.


Editing the form

The Input form is a very dynamic widget. You can customize its colors, layout, text, and even icons.

To edit a specific section of this widget, you must hover over the desired element and click it. Promptly, a new page will appear on the right side with all the editable options for the selected element.

This widget works for both dashboards, Normal and Blueprint.

1. Sections

Sections are the main structure of the form, and each section has its own fields.

It is possible to show a divider between sections, duplicate sections, remove the captions, and more.


2. Fields

Fields are associated with a variable and device using the Data From. Once the form is submitted, the data can be sent through the bucket.

Input form has many field types, like Address, Barcode, Calendar, Checkbox, Device, Dropdown, Text, and more.

As well, it is possible to change the field's visibility based on other fields' values.

2.1. 'Data From' Field

This field allows you to set the device and variable that will be used in this widget.

This field is dependent on the type of dashboard you are using; the difference is explained below.
2.1.1 'Data From' for Normal Dashboards

From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, select one device from your list of devices and the variable that contains the data.

2.1.2 'Data From' for Blueprint Dashboards

From the option 'Data From' on the right menu, add the Blueprint device and input the name of the variable that contains the information.

When using a Blueprint dashboard, the field Variable will not list variables to be picked because it doesn't know the devices linked to your Blueprint Device.

3. Buttons

It is also possible to create and customize buttons that can perform some actions as running analysis, clearing fields, and sending data to the bucket.

After the button has been clicked, it is possible to show a confirmation dialog message that needs to be accepted so that the actions of the button can be performed.

When the button triggers an analysis, it sends the field data and the button identifier through analysis's scope.
