    Hidden field component

    AshishSPanwar Level 2

      Hi All,

       

      I'm exploring AEM Forms on OSGI (AEM 6.0 SP2 + AEM Forms 6 SP2).

      During form submit action I need to pass some hidden values. I created a simple component that generates following markup.

      <input type="hidden" name="username" value="admin" /> // value can keep changing

      Clicking on submit action button does not submit the form. Firebug or Chrome console lists out lot os js error.

      On closer inspection I found that unlike foundation forms component, here 

      <form>

      element does not have any action or method defined. A lot of this is being done via javascript.

       

      I similarly have more data I would like to pass via hidden fields bit I'm stuck on the first step.

       

      Thanks

      Ashish

        Hi,

        Did you not considered using AEM Forms field components which you can hide via visibility expression set to false? For those components, you can prefll value from XML and you would get the same value returned on submit.
