There are currently two ways of pointing to an element when using functions. These look very similar and can easily be confused and we are now working on having the Designer software detect automatically what is needed. In the function declarations we will refer to this as reference (1.) or ID (2.).
- Point to an element by using its Element Reference.
This is the easiest way to point to an element. Simply open the Form Elements tab and drag the element you want into the drop zone it will be used in.
- Point to an element by citing its Element ID.
In order to do this you must drag the [Text/String] element from the Form Elements tab into the drop zone where the ID is to be used. When it is there, you must click it to set the value. The value should be the Element ID as listed in Element Properties – Settings. This name is case sensitive.
