cannot see the ids of the form elements

  1. Hi,
    in earlier version of gravity forms I could see the ids of the form elements (used to create hooks), in the "edit forms" and then just below the form name:
    "Edit | Preview | Entries | Notifications | Duplicate | Delete | IDs".

    Now with the latest version of gravity forms I only get:

    "Edit | Preview | Entries | Notifications | Duplicate | Delete " . So I cannot see the IDs in one place. This is especially needed when I have split ids like 25.1, 25.2...there is no way of knowing the sub-ds (in 25.3 , 3 is the subid of 25). ...could you suggest a way to get the subids ....(I can see the main id still when I edit the forms...thankfully)

  2. When you edit a form and then hover the fields you can see the field IDs on each.

  3. Hi Rob,
    yes that works for normal fields. But the "advanced fields " like name, address etc. have more than one fields. What if I want to access the sub fields,
    So for example:

    Name : First name + last name. Name may have id=25 for example. But what about the first name id and last name id ? I guess 25.1. and 25.2 ....or something like that. I think your solution fails there....so there is no way of knowing the sub ids of the advanced fields.

    regards,
    Nilay.

  4. Yikes! Sorry about my failed solution there. I suppose Google Chrome Dev Tools to inspect can be your guide. Just right click on an input and select "Inspect Element":

  6. We actually never had that built-in. However, I believe a 3rd Party Add-on did have it included with one of theirs. I think it might be the Directory plugin, but I'm not 100%.
