Create, edit, or configure forms using the form designer

Use the new form designer to create, edit, or configure forms for model-driven apps.

Important

The new model-driven form designer does not currently support editing card forms. More information: Form types

      The contents of the new form are filled using the existing main form definition. If multiple main forms exist, the form at the top of the list in the form order is used to fill the new form.

Configure a form

These are the properties available to configure a form when you create or edit a form using the form designer.

Name Description
Title Enter a name that is meaningful to other makers and app users. This name is shown to app users. If users have access to multiple forms for an entity they will use this name to differentiate between the available forms.

This property is required.
Description Enter a description that explains how the form is different from other main forms. This description is only shown to makers in the list of forms for an entity in the solution explorer.
Max Width Set a maximum width (in pixels) to limit the width of the form. The default value is 1900.

This property is required.
Show image Show the entity’s Primary Image if it has one set. This setting will enable showing the image field in the header of the form.

See Enable or disable entity options for more information about entity options.
