Enabling rich text in forms

Using Content Display (Rich Text)

This topic shows you how to use the Content Display input. Content Display enables you to use the CKEditor to add rich content to your forms.

Note: Content display inputs will not be submitted with the form.

Content Display allows a form editor to provide useful information to a user about the form that they are filling.

First you need to have the Forms Extended Inputs module deployed on your platform and activated on your web project. The module is part of Forms Enterprise package.

When adding a Content Display there are 2 main sections:

  • Title
    You can provide a title for the content body, position the title using the left and right align buttons

    , and show or hide the title and border.

Content Display can have logic rules associated with it. Use this feature to dynamically add helpful text to the form when a condition is met.

Content Display inputs are filtered out upon form submission and will not appear in the form submission results as demonstrated below:
