Form widget


To display MVC forms on your pages, you use the Form widget. When you place the Form widget on a page that is in pure MVC mode, you select which MVC form to display.

PREREQUISITES: You must have first created at least one MVC form.

Select an MVC form to display

  1. Open the Form widget designer.
  2. In the Form section, either select a form from the list or narrow down the list by starting to type in the Search field.
  3. Click Save.

Configure form settings

In the Settings section, you define custom actions that occur after a form is submitted.
If you opt to use custom confirmation, you are enabled to select one of the following options:

  • Show message for success
    A textbox appears, where you define the success message that appears when a user submits the form.
  • Redirect to a page...
    After submitting the form, the system redirects the user to another page of the website.
    Click Select and select a page from your website.

Configure advanced settings

In the Advanced settings section, you configure the individual properties of the widget. The model settings display all properties directly bound to the Form widget model. You can access these properties by clicking the Model button in Advanced settings mode.
