Customize Fields at Runtime

The Form component allows you to add/remove items and specify item visibility at runtime. The Form only updates the affected items and does not re-render the entire form.

In this demo, the "Show Address" checkbox specifies the visibility of address-related fields. Review the component's code to see how to set the "HomeAddress" group's visible attribute.

Click the "Add phone" button to add a new phone editor. This action adds a new item to the items array of the "phones" group. Each phone editor contains a button that deletes it from the items array and the Form.
