How can I display the Help Text (Column Description) in a NIntex Forms field (e.g. calculated value)?

Jump to solution

I noticed that every sharepoint column description is automatically filled in to the "help text" property. Our customer now would like to Show this below the Input control as they are used to have it in sharepoint forms.

 

How can I achieve that?

Hi Marco,

 

Displaying it permanently on the form is not currently in the product, but is something we have on the radar.  At the moment, if you put your mouse over the edit field, you'll find the description appears as a popup.

I have an employee who would like help text, but instead of hovering over the field, they want a question mark image by the label.  They want to be able to hover over that image and have help text display.  I don't see anywhere in the image settings to add help text.  Is this something that is possible?

You can define the CSS class first:

and then use javascript:

NWF$(document).ready(function()

{

NWF$(".tooltiptext").attr("title", "help text goes here");

});

Hi

where would the javascript be placed?
I am trying to implement this but does not work.

as an example, I clicked on a field and given the "tooltiptext" in Class field,
then added a Script Editot webpart and pasted the above code.

^[0-9]{2}[A-Z]{2}[0-9]{6}[A-Z]{1}

I think this seems to be working
maybe there is a shorter & better way and somebody might correct me

Another question here

how can I implement the below two format in 2 different fields:

PAGB.0XXXXX.XX.XXX

(the PAG.0 should be displayed by default and then the rest is just . and digits only.

2016XXAXXXXAA
(the year 2016 / 2017 / 2018  should be in the field followed by 2 digits + 1 cap Letter + 4 digits and + cap letters

Would appreciate your help.
