UI Component - Name

Every UI Component requires a name. It must uniquely identify the UI component and be self explanatory as it is the name that is specified by the user during template construction.

Use a hyphenated naming convention (for example: sc-text-box, sc-check-list, etc) for the UI Component Name to avoid incompatibilities with the underlying languages, and frameworks (ie. HTML, AngularJS).

The sc prefix (seen above) is what Formbird uses to distinguish the UI Components we have created and made available with the Formbird platform. It is an acronym for "standard component". Please choose a different prefix when developing your custom UI Components. This could represent your company name, or an individual's initials, etc.

Tip: If a UI Component is named sc-text-box , it will be represented in the HTML as <sc-text-box>.
