Link components can be used in forms to provide additional functionality, such as opening external resources, navigating to different sections of the form, or triggering specific actions.

Use Case

  1. Opening External Resources
  2. Navigating Form Sections
  3. Triggering Specific Actions
  4. Providing Contextual Help and Resources
  5. Enhancing Accessibility and Usability


  1. A link could be used to display a message indicating that a required field has been left blank.

  2. Links can be used to trigger validation of user input before the form is submitted.
