Insert hidden field

In order to insert a hidden field inside a form in page (or even independent from the form) click the Hidden Field button from the toolbar:


Note: If the cursor is not placed inside a form (inside the red dotted border) a dialog box will be displayed asking whether to add the form as well.

Hidden fields store information that is not displayed in the form (e.g. current date, data specified by the site developer, data retrieved from the session etc.). Set advanced hidden field options by using the Hidden Field Properties panel.

Hidden Field Properties

The Hidden Field Properties panel is displayed when you select (click on) a hidden field inserted in your page. It corresponds to the <hidden> tag in the Tag Selector:


To configure this panel, follow the instructions below:

  1. In the Element ID text box enter the value for the id attribute. It will uniquely identify the element (hidden field) in page.

  2. In the Value text box enter the hidden field value that will be sent to the server once the form is submitted.
