Once you have Sintel Forms enabled you can begin customizing the layout. Sintel Forms uses the Office UI fabric (now called Fluent UI) to control the layout of your forms allowing you to create a number of layouts to suit your needs.
- Add/remove sections
- Add/remove columns within sections (min 1 column, max 4 columns)
- Add/remove containers within columns
- 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.
You can add up to 4 columns within each section and you can add as many containers within each column as you need.
1. Adding/deleting sections
To add a section simply click on the grey "Add Section" bar which becomes active when you hover your mouse over it. Clicking on the delete icon will delete the section.
By default when you add a section it contains 2 columns and containers to allow you add fields. You can, of course, delete these elements and create your own if you wish.
2. Adding columns
When you hover your mouse over the header of any section an option will appear permitting you to add columns on the add icon as shown:
3. Modifying columns
When you hover your mouse over a column a menu will appear that permits you to:
- Move the column left or right
- Resize the column
- Delete the column
4. Adding/deleting containers
To add a container simply click on the "Add container" bar which becomes active when you hover your mouse over a column.
To delete a container simply hover over it and click the delete icon
5. Adding/deleting fields
Once you have added a number of containers onto the form layout you can drag any field from the List field section on any of the containers on the form.
5. Refresh/Auto layout
There are two helpful buttons in the Layout section:
Refresh - if there are any new changes like the field was deleted, its property was changed, or new field was created outside the session simply hit that button.
Auto Layout - this button will create automatically new one-column section with all your existing fields which are not included in layout yet
