The Address field makes it quick and easy to capture address information on a form. This field provides a pre-formatted area for two street addresses, city, state/province, zip/postal code, and a drop down for country selection.
## Field Settings
- Field Label
Enter the label of the form field. This is the field title the user will see when filling out the form.
Enter the description for the form field. This will be displayed to the user and provide some direction on how the field should be filled out or selected.
Select the type of address you would like to use.
Within this section, you can use the toggle switches to enable or disable specific data within the address field.
Based on your selection within the Address Type, options will dynamically populate for the default country, state, or province. They can be selected here if you would like these to default to a specific location.
These properties set rules for how the data should be handled.
A required field will prevent the form from being submitted if it is not filled out or selected.
Placeholders may be used to place text within the field to give the user more information about the expected input.
Allows you to override the default placement. Descriptions may be placed either above or below the field.
Similar to the Description Placement option, but instead applies to the sub-label.
Custom Validation Message
If you would like to override the default error validation for a field, enter it here. This message will be displayed if there is an error with this field when the user submits the form.
Custom CSS Class
Enter the CSS class name you would like to use in order to override the default styles for this field.
- Admin Field Label
Enter the admin label of the form field. Entering a value in this field will override the Field Label when displayed in the Gravity Forms administration tool.
If you would like any of the fields to default to a specific value, you may enter that value here.
Display option to use the values submitted in different field
This may be used to populate the field from the information on another field. This is useful in cases such as shipping/billing address fields, where they may be the same information.
- Option Label
This determines the text that will be displayed next to the checkbox listed next to the field, which allows copying of the data. An example of this would be: Copy address from billing address.
Within this option, you will determine the field that will provide the data to this field.
Activated by default
This option is used to activate population of the field based on another, by default.
- Option Label
Select the visibility for this field. Field visibility set to Everyone will be visible by the user submitting the form. Form field visibility set to Admin Only will only be visible within the Gravity Forms administration tool. Setting a field to Admin Only is useful for creating fields that can be used to set a status or priority level on submitted entries.
Allow field to be populated dynamically
Check this option to enable data to be passed to the form and pre-populate this field dynamically. Data can be passed via Query Strings, Shortcode and/or Hooks.
Enable Conditional Logic
Create rules to dynamically display or hide this field based on values from another field. Remember, to use conditional logic, you will need to create a drop down, checkbox or multiple choice field.
The International address type is the default address type and supports most address formats internationally.
The United States address type is formatted specifically for address within the United States.
The Canadian address type is formatted specifically for addresses within Canadian.
Custom Address Type
Do you need to support an address type that is not compatible with any of the predefined options? No worries! You can add support for a new address type easily by using the gform_address_types filter. This filter can also be used to update the format of the predefined options as well.
Conditional Logic Support
Starting with Gravity Forms 2.0 you can configure conditional logic rules on other fields based on the values of the Address field inputs.
