bookmark_borderSingle Line Text

The Single Line Text field allows users to submit a single line of text. This basic field can be used for anything where no more than a single line of input is required.

General

Single Line Text Properties

  • Field Label
    Enter the label of the form field. This is the field title the user will see when filling out the form.

  • Description
    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.

  • Input Mask
    Input masks provide a visual guide allowing users to more easily enter data in a specific format such as dates and phone numbers.

  • Maximum Characters
    Enter the maximum number of characters that this field is allowed to have.

  • Rules
    These properties set rules for how the data should be handled.

    • Required
      A required field will prevent the form from being submitted if it is not filled out or selected.
    • No Duplicates
      A field set to allow no duplicates will require that a value entered in a field does not currently exist in the entry database for that field.

Appearance

Single Line Text Appearance

  • Placeholder
    The placeholder simply provides a hint to the expected input. This is not submitted with the form submission and is used solely for display purposes.

  • Description Placement
    This determines where the field description will be located (above or below the field).

  • Custom Validation Message
    If you would like to override the default error message, place it here.

  • Custom CSS Class
    Enter the CSS class name you would like to use in order to override the default styles for this field.

  • Field Size
    Select your desired field width here from the available options.

  • 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.

  • Default Value
    If you would like to pre-populate the value of a field, you can specify a static value or select a variable value from the predefined list.

  • Enable Password Input
    Checking this option will convert the single line text field into a password field. The password field will mask the user input (displayed as circles or asterisks).

  • Visibility
    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.
