Form Editor Field Toolbar

When hovering over or clicking on a field in the Form Editor you will be able to access several different options to modify or interact with the field in the Field Toolbar.

In the top left corner you will see a few pieces of information about the form. The first piece of information is the field type (ie Custom Field, Paragraph Text, Drop Down, etc). This is useful as some fields (such as the Custom Field) allow for different types of inputs. It can be difficult to determine which kind of field you are working with when a Checkboxes Field and a Custom Field set to checkbox inputs both look the same. Problem solved!

The second piece of information is the Field ID. This is super useful for a variety of tasks but especially so when retrieving field values with any of Gravity Forms’ hooks.

In the top right corner you will see the following options:

  • Edit/Close
    Clicking the “Edit” link will select the field and open up the full field options. If the field is currently selected, the “Edit” button will be updated to the “Close” button. Clicking the “Close” button will hide the field options.
  • Duplicate
    Clicking the “Duplicate” link will duplicate the current field preserving all of the field options in the new field. The duplicated field will display directly below the original field.
  • Delete
    Clicking the “Delete” link will delete the field from the form. You will be prompted to confirm before the field is deleted. Don’t forget that deleting a field also deletes all entry data associated with it.
