What is the use of Form "Hidden Fields"

Avatar

Level 3

I am trying to use "Hidden Field" in AEM Forms , but when I drop the hidden fields in to my forms area this field is not visible . My understanding is during design of Page I should be able to see the hidden fields and set name, id and values but there is no option I can find. 

Please advice how to use hidden fields , a detail step and use will help.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, this is html form hidden field, it won't be visible to user. Usually this field is needed if you want to perform some action after submitting form or some hidden data is required in post processing.

At time of designing the page you should be able to see hidden field, otherwise how can you configure. Refer attached video. https://vimeo.com/110889211
