Group Name Description



This is a unique id for the component.


The description attribute additionally adds a description to the component.


If true the component is hidden and the value is not part of the payload.


Boolean value or expression specifies whether the component is visible or hidden. This expression might include another value in the same form, for instance, use a checkbox bound to {{showAdditionalFields}} and use the very same expression as the visible attribute to show or hide the component according to the checked state of the checkbox. If you want only to show the component, if the form is not used as the init-form, you can use the expression {{}} which evaluates to true only, if there is a current id which is not the id in a start form.


A Boolean value or expression specifies whether component is enabled or disabled.


Link text
