Input improvements

We've added 5 new and improved options for input components in the Inspector (right-hand panel), including:

  • Read only: read only inputs are focusable and selectable but cannot be modified. They look the same as normal inputs.
  • Label width: set the width of the label as a percentage of the component width (%), pixels (px), or grid columns (col).
  • Decimal places: set the maximum number of digits after the decimal, and optionally pad trailing zeros.
  • Allow null value: Number Input components can now have an empty state of null instead of 0.
  • Show clear button:  Number Input components can now optionally show a clear button.

If you want further configuration options for any of our components, drop us a note at support@retool.com!
