Configure the layout

Once you have Sintel Forms enabled you can begin customizing the layout. Sintel Forms uses the Office UI fabric to control the layout of your forms allowing you to create a number of layouts to suit your needs.

You can:

  1. Add/remove sections
  2. Add/remove columns within sections (min 1 column, max 4 columns)
  3. Add/remove containers within columns
  4. Add/remove fields within containers

 

When the forms designer is loaded and you select the Layout option a section containing 2 columns with containers will be automatically added for you. You can immediately start dragging fields from the "Properties Panel" on the right side of your screen.

  Note

You can add up to 4 columns within each section and you can add as many containers within each column as you need.
