General

Control Properties

Text

The text that is displayed on the Web Page.

Input ID to connect this label to

Expects type text.

The Input ID assigned to the Web Control bound to the Label.

Some Web Controls, such as the Text Input, Dropdown List, and Checkbox Web Controls are used to collect user input. When the Input ID assigned to one of these Input Controls is also assigned to this field, users can interact with the designated Input Web Control directly by clicking on the Label.

The value of the Format field must be set to label in order for a Label to be successfully bound to an Input Web Control.

Style and Layout

The default Label Variants allow builders to quickly choose among body or heading styles.

State

Is Visible

Expects type boolean.

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

Example #1

To make a Label that displays different text depending on the value of variables, you must edit the Airscript expression that defines the the text of the Label. Here's an example where we personalize a greeting by inserting the text variable firstName into the text by using double curly brackets to designate an Airscript expression for evaluation within a string:

Example #2

In practice, you might not always have a value for firstName, so you can create a conditional using IF() and ISEMPTY() to check if there's a name and change the the text displayed in the Label accordingly.
