The Form component builds a data entry UI for an object assigned to the formData property. The component displays and aligns label-editor pairs for each field in the bound object.

You can use the editors on the right to modify the following properties:

  • labelLocation
    Specifies whether to display labels above or to the left of corresponding editors.

  • colCount
    Specifies the number of columns in the layout. To build an adaptive layout where the column count depends on the container width, set this property's value to "auto".

  • minColWidth
    Specifies the minimum column width. Use this property when the colCount property's value is "auto".

  • width
    Specifies the Form component's width.

  • readOnly
    Makes the Form editors read-only.

  • showColonAfterLabel
    Specifies whether the Form displays a colon after a label.
