Frevvoproduct
 has a rich palette of controls (top left panel in the Forms Designer). Most of them are easy and intuitive to use. Simply drag and drop the desired control onto the canvas. We'll take a look at a few controls and their not-so-obvious properties that are still commonly used.

...

These are all selection controls. Radio and Dropdown allow a single selection while Checkbox allows for multiple selections. Drag and drop any of these into the Form Designer. See that the Properties panel shows the Options. You can set these options as desired. Options follow the format value=label. If you do not provide a value, frevvo  

Frevvoproduct
will infer one from the label. For example:

...

You may have radios and checkboxes with many choices. Sometimes you want to lay them out horizontally rather than one below the other. To do this, simply click on the Style Tab in the Properties panel and set the Item Width in %. For example, if you set 25%, you'll notice that 4 (four) choices fit side by side. frevvo  

Frevvoproduct
will automatically lay them out intelligently e.g. if one of the labels is much longer than the other, it will be arranged in a sensible way. Be careful when you lay out many such choices side by side if you want your form to be usable on a smart phone.

...

Drag and drop a Message control from the palette onto the form. Notice that this control has a Message Type property. Experiment with the various types of messages to see what they look like. If you choose one of these standard types for your messages, frevvo  

Frevvoproduct
will automatically format them, display a decorator and lay out a nice-looking message on all devices. Of course, you can customize these using the properties available to you in the Style tab. The message body can contain any well-formatted HTML, for example, bold text, lists of instructions, text in different colors etc. Just use standard HTML tags as long as you ensure that the HTML is well-formed.

...

As you might imagine, this can get very complex. You can even have multiple levels of repeats i.e. a repeating Section can itself contain another repeating Section and so on. The validation requirements that this creates are incredibly complicated but you don't have to worry about them. frevvo  

Frevvoproduct
takes care of the details for you and you can be certain that when the form is submitted, it is valid with respect to the criteria defined by the designer.

Try dragging and dropping some/all the other palette controls onto the form to see what they do. They're quite intuitive and you can read more details in the Palette Controls section of the frevvo documentation.
