Regex regExp

The Regex property, short for Regular Expression, enables you to apply custom validations on user input by defining specific constraints using regular expressions. If the user enters a value that does not adhere to the specified pattern, the widget displays an error message indicating "invalid input".

For instance, if you want to validate that the user enters a price in multiples of 5. You can set Regex as:


Valid boolean

Allows you to set an expression to determine the validity of the user's input. When the specified expression evaluates to false, indicating that the input is invalid, the widget displays an error message. This feature enables you to define custom validation rules and provide informative error messages to guide the user when their input does not meet the required criteria.

Tooltip string

Enables you to add hints or provide additional information to guide the user regarding the required input.

For example, if you want to make the widget visible only when the user selects "Yes" from a Select widget, you can use the following JavaScript expression:

{{Select1.selectedOptionValue === "Yes"}}

Prevents users from selecting the widget. Even though the widget remains visible, user input is not permitted. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Disabled property to control the widget's disable state conditionally.

For example, if you want to allow only a specific user to fill the input, you can use the following JavaScript expression:

Sets the visibility of the widget.



setDisabled (param: boolean): Promise

Sets the disabled state of the widget.



setValue (param: number): Promise

Allows you to dynamically set the value of the widget.



To perform sequential actions, use the .then() block for execution.
