Understand Single Line Field | Zoho Creator Help

Single line

Understand single line field

The single line field enables your users to enter plain text, i.e., letters from any language, numbers and special characters. Below is an example of how a single line field looks on a form:

  • When a user accesses from a web browser:

  • When a user accesses from a phone or tablet:

Character limits

The single line field can accept a maximum of 255 characters.

Maximum character length validation will be implemented strictly for all your form fields if a record is added via Deluge, API, or email input. This validation ensures that all the records added via various inputs undergo a thorough check for their field characters to ensure they're on par with the predefined character limits that you set, thereby minimizing error handling. 

When to use this field?

You may add the single line field to your form when the data you want your users to enter:

  • Does not fit well into any other type of field, and,
  • Does not exceed 255 characters

In cases where you want to enable your users to enter more than 255 characters, you must opt to add a  multi line  field or a  rich text  field to your form.

Features

With respect to the user-experience of the single-line field on a form, you can:

Examples

  • Course management: Imagine that you conduct some courses and are building an app to manage the course registrations. You may use the single line field to enable your users to enter the names of the courses.
