Input > Text Field

Use the Text Field control in the Capriza Designer to create a text field or text area in the Zapp that enables the user to type one or more lines of text. Select Text Field under the Input dropdown.




A tooltip will appear that says "Select a text-field". When you hover over a text field item, the tooltip will change to say "Click to include this text field."


Click and the control will be added to the mobile page.
