Can you believe the featured image is a form? A model-driven form with a PCF on it, and nothing else?

Lately I’ve saw in the docs an excelent article on best practices for model-driven forms: “Design forms for efficiency“. Right to the end, there is a part about letting a control expand to the whole space available. This possibility seems to be in the sdk since a few months already, but I didn’t knew about it yet. So I’ve tried it out.

How it behaves?

The sdk tab.setContentType accepts two modes:

  • cardSections: That’s the default for a model-driven form
  • singleComponent: Maximizes the content of the first component in the tab.

So, if needed, we could use it on every tab. It will show only the first control, and all the others will be hidden.

Actually you can get pretty close to a “singleComponent” form, by customizing…
