For Xima® Formcycle versions up to 6.3.2, the properties described here are still located in the Base properties section.

The properties available here are used to configure the visibility of the form element. The basic property Hidden is available to each form element. The properties Disabled and Repeat as well as the properties dependent on them are only available for form element types where they are useful.

User interface for changing basic properties of a form field, such as visibility, repeatability and whether the form element is disabled.

Elements can be repeated so that the user can enter as many data as desired.

The number of repetitions can also be set automatically, depending on the value of another element. In this example the fieldset with the data of a single child is repeated. There are always as many fieldsets as the number of children the user selected.
NameBeschreibung
hiddenWhen checked, the form field will be hidden initially. To show it again, the option visible if can be used, or a Javascript function such as  jQuery.fn.visible
disabledWhen checked, the content of the form field cannot be edited.
RepeatWhen this option is activated, the user can freely create any number of copies (repetitions) of this form element. For example, this can be used to let the user enter one or multiple email addresses. Please note that you cannot nest repeated elements: if a container is marked as repeated, none of its containing elements can be repeated.
Min. repeatMinimum number of allowed repetitions. When this limit is reached, the user cannot delete any more repeated elements. This is also the inital number of repetitions when the form is opened.
Max. repeatMaximum number of allowed repetitions. When this limit is reached, the user cannot add any more repeated elements.
Repeat triggerWhen an element is selected here: The number of repeated elements is automatically set to the value of the selected element. For example: Assume there is a select element or input element that lets the user enter number of children in their household. Also assume there is a fieldset for entering some data of these children. The fieldset is marked as repeated, and the select or input element is set as the repetition trigger. Now when the user enters how many children they have got, fieldsets are removed or created automatically so that there is always one fieldset for each child.
Hide buttonsAvailable only when an element was selected for Repeat trigger. Enable this option to hide the plus and minus buttons for adding and removing repeated elements. Use this option when the number of repeated elements should be controlled only by trigger.
