Example

Functionality

  • Read inputs and entire form state.

  • Note: Because RHF is based on uncontrolled inputs, Update button will refresh the DevTool to read the latest input value and form state.

  • Visual feedback when input or form is valid or invalid.

  • Search registered input and also custom registered components.

  • Note: you can easily locate an input by clicking the Native button. This will be useful when you working on a large form.
