    How to get a list of all field IDs and unique names in a form?

    Asked by Benflips on January 15, 2017 at 12:52 AM

    I accidentally hit some key combination the other day and up popped a list of all fields on my form.

    I can't replicate it to save myself.

    Can you please help?

    No, I'm wanting to know if it is possible to open a list that has both the
    field id's and their respective 'unique name' for the entire form?

    You can find unique names and field IDs from the Properties>Advanced>Field Details in the form builderPlease have a look at the following guide: How-to-find-field-IDs-and-names 

    You can also access the Unique Name List of all form fields. Please press CTRL+Shift+I in the for builder. Whereas you get a list of unique names,  there is no option to get a list of Field IDs of all form fields in the form unfortunately.


    However, you can switch to the old version of the form builder. In the old version, it is easier to see Field IDs and unique names of the form fields. Just one click is enough in this case. Please have a look at the following video about how to switch old version:
