This component works exactly like the fm:Form_TextInput component. The only difference is when this component is used with the validator, it will also check if the entered email address is, in fact, valid.

This component also adds one new attribute checkUnique, documented below.


<fm:Form_Email name="email" value="" />

Supported attributes

autocompleteOptionalN/AThis sets the non-standard autocomplete attribute for this textfield. This is supported in a few popular browsers
checkUniqueOptional0When this is set to 1, a call will be made to the server to check if the email address already existed in our system. The only place where this is really useful, is in a registration form. This allows you to check before submitting if a user already registered with the given email address.
classOptionalThe css classname that will be assigned to the actual html form field. Note that a few default classes might be added
disabledOptionalN/AThis will set the html disabled attribute
idOptionalrandomizedThe id of the form element. Note that this id will also be used for the 'for' attribute in the <label> component
labelOptionalN/AThis attribute will be used to generate labels for this component, if it's used within an fm:Form component
languageOptionalN/AThis specifies which language to use for the display of the form_country dropdown. Choices are:
  • en - English
  • es - Spanish
  • fr - French
  • nl - Dutch
