    Modifying Widget ID's

    Asked by Joss  on October 21, 2014 at 04:45 PM

    I noticed that the new widgets such as the TextArea Autosize has some editable areas in the settings.

    I can change the area called "Setting Names" - and I'm not clear about what I might use this for.  Can you make some suggestions that would be useful?

    Also the Widget ID - can this be changed to some kind of reference name to help identify it in subsequent CSV and pdf files?  What are the limits/impacts of changing this field?

    Thank you for bringing this into our attention.
    I've made a few tests on my side and couldn't find what are these settings for.

    But, please allow me to escalate your question to our developers.

    As soon as they have an answer, they'll let you know on this thread.

    Please don't mind about this properties. They are not related to the widgets. I advice to just leave it as it is. Right now, we completely removed it from the properties wizard.

    If it happens that you encountered something like this again in the fture. Please do let us know.
