Conditional rendering


FormBuilder out of the box supports conditional rendering for components. For this purpose, a special component property renderWhen is used.

The value of the property is treated as an expression that should return true when the component needs to be rendered. The expression in this case is the function text, without the return keyword. A form variable of type IFormData is available in the body of the expression, just as it is in computed properties.

You can also make the property computed if you want to write a full function that calculates whether the component should be displayed.


Create a simple form with two controls:

  1. A checkbox with the checkbox key.
  2. Button (the key of this component does not matter for us).

And the Button component will only be rendered if the checkbox is checked.

Conditional rendering 01

Here is the JSON of the form:

"version": "1",
"form": {
"key": "Screen",
"type": "Screen",
"props": {},
"children": [
"key": "checkbox",
"type": "RsCheckbox",
"props": {
"children": {
"value": "I agree to receive emails from the subscription."
"key": "subscribeButton",
"type": "RsButton",
"props": {
"children": {
"value": "Subscribe"
"appearance": {
"value": "primary"
"color": {
"value": "green"
"renderWhen": {
"value": ""
"localization": {},
"languages": [
"code": "en",
"dialect": "US",
"name": "English",
"description": "American English",
"bidi": "ltr"
"defaultLanguage": "en-US"

You can upload this form to our public demo to check how it works. Switch to "Preview" mode and click on the checkbox component. The button will only be displayed if the value of the checkbox component is equivalent to true. The button will not render if the value is not true. The button will also not be in the DOM tree.

You can achieve the same behavior by making the property computable:
