A Nicer Way to Make Forms

Axure RP 10 is currently in Beta and only available for customers with an active Axure RP 9 license or subscription. To download or learn more about the Beta, check out axure.com/beta

One of the things customers tell us they love about Axure RP is the ability to prototype realistic, dynamic forms. Working text fields and droplists, conditional logic, variables, and powerful interactions have been the building blocks for designing great form experiences for years.

With Axure RP 10, we wanted to make it easier to layout forms and simplify the interactions that make them dynamic in your UX prototypes. We’ve added a new error style effect, built-in common conditions, and improved push/pull and move options. There will also be an updated Form component library that takes advantage of new resizing constraints (coming soon).

Here are some highlights:

  • New Error style effect and “Set Error State” action for form fields 
  • Common conditions like “if field is empty” and “if field contains @”
  • New Resizing Constraints so resizing forms (or any grouped widgets) keeps everything in place
  • New push/pull and move options that help when hiding or showing parts of a form
  • Ability to trigger interactions when a widget is set to an error state 
  • Checkboxes and radio buttons can be set to fit to text
  • Option to toggle between the enabled and disabled state of a widget with a single interaction
