When setting the help text for a Text Control (In the Common section), the help text is not shown when running the Coach. The text does not seem to be included in the genereated HTML.
For buttons with a help text the text is inserted in the “title” attribute for the generated HTML input field.
I have not examined all the other components but checkboxes seems to have the same problem.
You may want to try nesting the Text control inside of a Tool Tip control with the configuration in the screenshots.
Ok, is that the recommended way for help text for text controls?
I cannot try it out for now since the Community Edition does not have the Tooltip control.
Yes. The Tool Tip control is a great way to provide information for the user when hovering over input forms. Another great method is to use Placeholder text, such as (###) ###-#### to suggest the correct format for a phone number. Alternatively, you can write a validation script and set the validity of each control with the .isValid() method, which will cause most controls to output a message.
