Collecting Data - Text Fields
Any text field is available for you to use any number of times when defining a project form (see Form Builder instructions). We will now indicate what a user sees when presented with each type of text field, prior to moving on to media fields.
Please note: musch of this is covered within the Form Builder documentation, however we also present here for clarity.
Plain Text Field
When a user is presented with a plain text field, the devices soft keyboard is launched automatically allowing them to enter free text before progressing to the next question, as in the following screenshots:
If the text field is a key field or has been defined to be 'required' then a user will be warned if they try to progress in the form without entering data as in the following screenshots:
Double Entry Fields
If, within a form, the option 'double' has been specified, a user is required to enter the answer to a particular question twice. The values a user has entered are checked against eachother and if they differ, the user is warned. In the following screenshots we are attempting to enter two different email addresses (first screenshot). On attempting to progress in the form, the user is warned that the 'values are different'. Tapping OK allows the user to change the values prior to progression in the form.
Note: Similar validation and user warnings occur when a text field has had a regular expression added to it in the Form Builder. More information of regular expressions can be found here.
We will now describe a user entering a numeric field
