Setting default values

To set a default value for an element—for example, the default selection of a drop-down box—do the following:

  1. In the canvas, click the element for which you need to set a default value.
  2. In the properties pane, on the properties tab, next to Default Value, open the drop-down menu and select the value you want.

    Note: Winshuttle Composer uses Default Value functionality for fields in a manner similar to Microsoft InfoPath, but you must use Composer Rules to address certain differences. See Using default values in Composer vs. InfoPathfor additional information.

Setting default values for a form field

  1. In the canvas, click the form field.
  2. Type the default text into the form field.

    This text will automatically become the default value for that field at run-time.

You can also set a default value through the Properties pane (shown at right).
