FormField.Result property

Gets or sets a string that represents the result of this form field.

public string Result { get; set; }


For a text form field the result is the text that is in the field.

For a checkbox form field the result can be “1” or “0” to indicate checked or unchecked.

For a dropdown form field the result is the string selected in the dropdown.

Setting Result for a text form field does not apply the text format specified in TextInputFormat. If you want to set a value and apply the format, use the SetTextInputValue method.

For a text form field the TextInputDefault value is applied if value is null.

Assert.AreEqual("MyComboBox", comboBox.Name);
Assert.AreEqual(FieldType.FieldFormDropDown, comboBox.Type);
