Form Builder Module support for HTML5 input field types (email, tel, number etc)

  • Form Builder Module support for HTML5 input field types (email, tel, number etc)
  • I’ve looked through the documentation for this but unable to find out – I’m trying to determine if the inbuilt Sitefinity Form Builder supports HTML5 form input types such as ‘email’, ’number' and ‘tel’?

    We need these so that the correct smartphone keyboard is presented when a user focuses on a form input on a Sitefinity-built website. If anyone is able to enlighten us on this it would be great. I really hope it doesn't require any custom work as these types have been around for a few years now.

     Thanks

  • Hi,

    There are no such form widgets out of the box, however it is extremely easy to create them. You can check our documentation article about creating form widgets. The widget is created using Sitefinity Thunder Visual studio extension. Once created you can modify the template to include any input types and modify the code-behind to validate them in various way or use the designer's built-in regex validation.
