    Where can I find the field ID of a hidden field widget?

    Asked by JanSpijkerman on August 22, 2016 at 03:06 AM

    In the hidden field box there is no button advanced so i can not see the field IDs

     

    I need that becourse i use a external program to update the hidden field.

    Hello Jan,

    You are right. The gear icon of the "Hidden Field" widget does not display the field id. I am reporting it to our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    For now, I would suggest you to please view your form's source code and get the field ID of hidden form field. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
