Email Input

The Email Input Web Control captures email addresses. The email input value also evaluates to null if an invalid email is entered. This can help with building out a validation experience.

General

Control Properties

Placeholder Text

Expects type text.

The text that is displayed in the input’s box before the user starts typing.

Advanced Control Properties

Right Icon

Allows the display of icons to the right-hand-side of the input box.

AutoComplete

Determines whether the user's device is allowed to autocomplete the field. Guidance can be provided to the App user's browsing environment by using one of the predetermined autocomplete options.

Data Binding

Value

Expects type email.

By default, this Data Binding property auto-generates a Variable of type Email at the Web Page level to store the data from the input. Users can also edit the Data Binding property and create their own Variables.

Style and Layout

The control Variants have styles for the following states:

Default - When first rendered without state
Focused - when the Email Input is focused
Disabled - When the Email Input is disabled

Check Common style properties of web controls for further details on how to style this control.

Actions

On Blur

Triggers when the user leaves the input field. That is, when changing the focus from the field to some other part of the application.

Value Changed

Triggers with each typed character. That is, with an email input, the Value changes every time a key is pressed, unlike a Checkbox, where its Value changes when the box is selected.

On Enter

Triggers upon pressing Enter.

Please check out Action Builder to find all the available actions.

Advanced

State

Is Visible

Expects type boolean.

If TRUE the email input will be visible. If FALSE the email input will not be displayed. If the field is empty, the email input will be visible.

Is Disabled

Expects type boolean.

If TRUE the email input will be disabled and the user will not be able to interact with the control. If FALSE the email input will be enabled. If the field is empty, the email input will be enabled.

Example

In this example, the Email Input includes a condition based on the input validity. If the app user enters a value other than an email address, when pressing enter, a label asking the user to enter a correct input is displayed.
