Elements which allow end users to enter text directly into the template in Document Editor. TextInputs can be labelled to provide guidance on what type of content should be entered into the field.
Once a TextInput Element is clicked upon, details of the Element can be modified in the top menu with the following new tabs: Conditions; Tags; Properties; Warning; Help; and Design.
The TextInput Properties tab provides the option to either
- restrict the input to numbers, or
- if working with a bilingual document, simultaneously and automatically enter text into the
second document language.
TextInput Warnings are generally used when the TextInput is restricted to numerical values. If the entered value falls outside of permissible parameters set by the template designer, then a warning message will appear.
Template designers can choose any of the following mathematical expressions to set Warning parameters:
- Higher or Equal
- Not Equal
- Lower or Equal
The Help tab lets the template designer add Help text for a user generating a Smart Document from the template. In Document Editor, as the user hovers the cursor over a TextInput Element with Help text, a Help bubble will appear on the right column of the Document providing instruction on what text to enter.An example of a Warning, as seen in Task 7 of Lesson 2 in the Document Drafting Automation Basics Course can be to apply a formula that will send a warning message if the value entered into the TextInput field higher to a defined number.
