Custom Labels

When you add a field to Vizlib Input Form, the field name is displayed in the table as a default, with the Display Label setting Use Field Name. When you enable the Custom setting (Figure 1) you'll be able to enter text or use an expression to create a Custom Display Label, add a Field Tooltip message, add a Suffix, set a Placeholder, set a display condition which needs to be met in Show field if, and make the field read-only with Editable if.

Note: Field Tooltip will only be displayed when the input form is in Analysis mode.

You can use the Custom Styling settings in the Input Fields section to customize the colors in a particular field (the example uses the Name field), or use the Appearance section to customize the colors for input form components (in this example the Main Color setting was changed).

Convert to Vizlib Writeback Table

If you're working with Vizlib Input Form and would like to enter and review the data in a table format, you can now convert the form into a Vizlib Writeback Table in a few short steps (Figure 1). 

Note: Before you start, we'd recommend duplicating the sheet you'd like to convert. 

  • Open the sheet in Edit mode, then go to Custom Objects on the left.
  • Select the Vizlib Collaboration panel, then click on Vizlib Writeback Table.
  • Drag the writeback table object and drop it onto the input form.
  • Select Convert to Vizlib Writeback Table (don't select Replace with Vizlib Writeback Table as this means setting up a completely new object.)

Figure 1: Convert to Writeback Table

  • You should see Vizlib Writeback Table settings appear in the property panel and the form data displayed in the table. 
  • Form view is enabled by default, so when you are in analysis mode, you can click Edit and open the data as it's laid out in the input form (Figure 1).
