The “Forms” widgets in Axure RP’s Default widget library are great for quickly putting together user input forms. These widgets become real HTML form elements in your prototype’s generated HTML files, giving you easy access to platform-native functionality and styling.

Sometimes, though, you need more control over the styling or interactivity of your form fields. Enter the shape widget! The appearance and interactivity of shape widgets are fully customizable, making them the perfect choice for creating custom form fields. (Take a look at the Axure RP documentation to learn about shape widgets and widget styling.)
