[teaser]Zerion Software’s iForm App for iOS and Android is a powerhouse when it comes to collecting good data, but did you know that is also has some powerful features for adding custom images and branding the iForm App?[/teaser]
When forms are being built, the FormBuilder is usually thinking about getting the form created, deployed and tested. Many times the visual aspect of the form is overlooked. The use of custom branding and images can make the form more appealing as well as add many functional improvements. Below are the ways to incorporate graphics into your form today![divider]
[dropcap4]1[/dropcap4] Image Label
The Image Label is an iFormBuilder widget that is used to insert an image in the place of a form element. These are typically used at the top of forms to display the company logo or used to show custom image popups throughout the form. Some groups have also used the Image Label as a way to show a diagram to users. During the Holiday season, I also like to use them to add some custom dividers as Image Labels.
I love when I see customers who use image option lists in their form. It can make a boring pass fail select element change to a Green or Red Stamp. For Pick Lists and Multi-Selects, you can incorporate a headshot of a list of people or your favorite holiday foods.
I use Client Customization on just about every account I work on. I use this to set a consistent color scheme and background colors throughout the entire application. Learn how to customize every aspect of the app (except the iForm App icon of course!).
When it comes to the Element labels lets be honest, the basic black text and font are pretty lame. This can easily be changed to a specified color and font size while also adding a small icon beside the image.
