The following tokens were documented but not implemented in the format="" of VarFORMFIELD:

  • $name - field name (sanitized title)
  • $attributes - form field attributes

This field was documented as $definingTopic but not implemented. Now implemented with better name:

  • $formtopic - name of form definition topic

This field is new:

  • $length - length of value (can be used to test if value is set)

These fields where documented but not implemented. Docs have been updated to no longer list them:

  • $type - form field type
  • $size - size of field
