Hidden Input Field - Input Type


#1

How come Webflow doesn’t easily allow you to create a hidden input field when you use the dropdown box for input type ?

It seems like only text, email, password, phone are available.

I have a use case for hidden input field and would be nice to easily do it through Webflow forms.

I also need to know what the default type is of the Webflow form input fields ?

is it plain/text or application/json or application/x-www-form-urlencoded

It would be nice to be able to control that as well to give us more functionality of the forms and how we can distribute them across the web and to an API if certain types are required.

Text?

Oh you mean the form enctype. The default is application/x-www-form-urlencoded unless a file field is used. Just submit a form and inspect the request.
