Advanced Forms

The Forms asset within the CMS includes the ability for advanced functionality. This functionality may change on a frequent basis, so be sure to check back often for the latest information. If you have a specific form need that is not addressed with the current advanced features available, please contact cmshelp@mtu.edu.

Some of the advanced functionality includes legends, additional classes, fieldsets, sizes, and prebuilt datasets. You can also set up a form to email different people depending on a certain radio button selection.

  • Each element has the Advanced field attribute.
  • Every declaration in the Advanced field must be terminated with a semicolon (;).
  • Attributes are always lowercase.

Advanced Field Reference Table

Attribute Name Syntax Example Description
fieldset_start fieldset_start=true; Defines the opening tag for a fieldset tag within the form. This is used in conjunction with fieldset_end to set off a group of elements. It can also be used with fieldset_label to define a label for the group.
fieldset_end fieldset_end=true; Defines the closing tag for a fieldset and is used in conjunction with fieldset_start and fieldset_label.
fieldset_label fieldset_label=About; Defines the label of the fieldset. For example, if the group should be labeled “About” then that can be defined here. It can be entered without quotes and can include spaces.
rows rows=10; Adds a rows attribute with the specified value to a multi-line text field. It specifies the number of visible lines for a text area, but does not determine the number of allowed input characters.
dataset dataset=state; Adds a predefined dataset to a radio button, checkbox, drop-down, or multi-select element. This is useful for data that are frequently used, but tedious to type. For example, the “state” dataset includes all 50 United States. See the next table for available datasets.
emails emails=name@something.com|option2@example.com|email3@mtu.edu; Generates email based on radio button selection. This code would go in the advanced field of the radio button element with the email for each option separated by | in the same order as the options. In the To field of the email setup, reference the radio button element name, like {{radioelement}}.
field_type field_type=tel; On Single Line Text elements, sets the field type to determine what keypad is displayed on mobile devices. Options are “number”, “tel”, or “email” (without quotation marks).
