LDP Form Special Elements

Within LDP Forms we have built in some special elements you can have that will insert some pre-formatted elements.  We have built in the ability for you to add a H2 and H3 element.  An alert and description field have also been built in.  Below is how you create the tags while you are building your form and what styles are associated with those tags.  Please reference the LDP Forms Elements page if you are unsure what element you should select. 

PLEASE NOTE:  An existing form field CANNOT be edited to become a special element.  Special elements should first be created as new elements.

  • H2 tag: Select a Single Line Text element.  As the Label you should enter tagh2.  Whatever text you add in the Default field will be formatted like an H2 tag on your page.
  • H3 tag: Select a Single Line Text element.  As the Label you should enter tagh3.  Whatever text you add in the Default field will be formatted like an H3 tag on your page.
  • Alert Tag: Select a Single Line Text element.  As the Label you should enter tagalert.  Whatever text you enter into the Default field will be red and bold on your page.  One reason so use this element is to alert people of the Required elements, as they will have an asterisk ( * ) beside them if they are checked as required.
  • HR Tag: Select a Single Line Text element.  As the Label you should enter taghr.  There is no need to enter anything into the Default field as this will just add an hard rule (hr) to your page.
  • Description Tag: Select Multi-Line Text element.  As the Label you should enter tagdescription.  Whatever text you enter into the Default field will be displayed in italics on your page.
  • Captcha Element: Select Single Line Text element.  As the Label you should enter tagcaptcha.  If you would like to enter text about the captcha field enter that information into the Default field.  The text entered into the Default field will be displayed above the captcha box.

For an example of all these special elements please visit the funnymonkeys site.

For all the default styles tied to LDP forms you can view the stylesheet.
