The switchable Element

The switchable element allows to switch between different options (groups of XS2A Form elements) that are provided in the options property.

{
    "type": "switchable",
    "tags": array<string>,
    "version": string,
    "key": string,
    "selected": string,
    "options": array<{
        "value": string,
        "label": string,
        "content": array<FormElement>,
        "disabled": boolean,
        "description": ?string,
        "badge": ?{
            "type": "image"|"text",
            "content": "string"
        },
    }>,
    "validator": {
        "required": ?boolean
    }
}

selected String, always present, since v1.0.0

The selected property sets the initial state of the element. At any time only one option (a group of elements) can be active.

options Object[], always present, since v1.0.0

The options array contains the available XS2A Form element groups as objects.

options[].value String, always present, since v1.0.0

The value property acts as an identifier for the option.

options[].label String, always present, since v1.0.0

The label property holds a label can be shown to the consumer.

options[].content FormElement[], always present, since v1.0.0

The content array holds the group of form elements to be shown to the consumer if the option is selected.

options[].disabled Boolean, always present, since v1.0.0

The disabled property that marks an option as disabled or unclickable

options[].description String, optional, since v1.1.0

The optional description property contains text which provides additional information about the option.

options[].badge String, always present, since v1.1.0

The optional property badge - depending on its type property - either holds a text or an image source.

Possible Option Display

options[].badge.type String, always present, since v1.1.0

The value of the type property has to be either image or text to indicate the type of badge.

options[].badge.content String, always present, since v1.1.0

The value of the content property can be a base64-encoded string or a URL.

validator Object, always present, since v1.0.0

The validator property may contain the required rule for the switchable element to be validated against.

All form elements that are part of an inactive option, hence part of a group that is not the one that is currently selected, must not be validated since these values are not submitted.

validator.required Boolean, optional, since v1.0.0

If the required property is set to true, then the switchable element's value cannot be empty in order to be valid. It has to contain the value property of one of the options.

Possible values for tags

  • COLLAPSIBLE

Switchable with COLLAPSIBLE tag

Example of a possible look of a switchable element with the COLLAPSIBLE tag and an inner form.

  • TABS

Switchable with TABS tag

Example of a possible look of a switchable element with the TABS tag.

  • DROPDOWN

Example

{
    "type": "switchable",
    "key": "switchable",
    "tags": [],
    "version": "1.1.0",
    "selected": "0",
    "options": [
        {
            "value": "0",
            "label": "Form1",
            "content": [...],
            "description": "First form",
            "disabled":false
        },{
            "value": "1",
            "label": "Form2",
            "content": [...],
            "disabled":true
        },{
            "value": "2",
            "label": "Form3",
            "content": [...],
            "disabled": false
        }
    ]
}

Returning the value of the switchable Element

The value sent back to the server for the switchable element has to be the value of the chosen option. Additionally only the keys and values of the chosen option's elements have to be returned. This is especially important since we cannot guarantee unique keys between the different groups of form elements in the options array.

The following example first depicts the received form and then the unencrypted response to it:

{
    "form_identifier": "ab12c34d-e45f-6789-0a12-3bc4de567fa",
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "elements": [
        {
            "type": "switchable",
            "key": "switchable1",
            "tags": [],
            "version": "1.1.0",
            "selected": "0",
            "options": [
                {
                    "value": "0",
                    "label": "Form1",
                    "content": [
                        {
                            "type": "input",
                            "key": "input0",
                            "version": "1.0.0",
                            "tags": [],
                            "password": false,
                            "label": "Login",
                            "read_only": false
                        }
                    ],
                    "description": "First form",
                    "disabled": false
                },{
                    "value": "1",
                    "label": "Form2",
                    "content": [
                        {
                            "type": "input",
                            "key": "input1",
                            "version": "1.0.0",
                            "tags": [],
                            "password": false,
                            "label": "E-Mail",
                            "read_only": false
                        }
                    ],
                    "description": "Second form",
                    "disabled": false
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

This example response depicts the case in which the input field of the second form was filled:

{
    "form_identifier": "ab12c34d-e45f-6789-0a12-3bc4de567fa",
    "data": [
        {
            "key": "switchable1",
            "value": "1"
        },
        {
            "key": "input1",
            "value": "john@doe.com"
        }
    ]
}
