A Rate component allows users to express their level of satisfaction, preference, or opinion on something using a visual scale.

Use Case

  1. Evaluating products or services
  2. Gauging satisfaction levels
  3. Prioritizing user preferences
  4. Enhancing user engagement
  5. Interactive feedback loops
  6. Gathering quantitative data
  7. Market research surveys
  8. Website usability testing
  9. A/B testing


  1. Tooltips: Informative pop-ups explaining the implications or meaning of each rating level, especially for complex criteria.
  2. Remember past ratings: Pre-fill the rating based on the user's previous rating for the same item, saving time and effort.
  3. Contextual recommendations: Based on the user's rating, suggest similar items or content they might enjoy.
  4. Adaptive interfaces: Adjust the rating scale or feedback options based on the user's previous interactions or browsing behavior.

  2. this.removeClassName(fields, className)

    this.removeClassName('rate_2n2vy8wj', 'abc')

  3. this.getValues()

    var data = this.getValues();

  4. this.hide(fields)

    var fields= ['rate_2n2vy8wj']


    var fields= ['rate_2n2vy8wj']

  6. this.disable(['fields'])


  7. this.enable(['fields'])


  8. this.getValue('fieldName')

    var ratename = this.getValue('rate_2n2vy8wj');
    console.log('getValue', ratename);

  9. this.getComponent('component_ID')

    var ratename = this.getComponent('rate_2n2vy8wj');
    console.log('getComponent', ratename);

Form validation is the process of checking the data entered into a form to ensure that it's valid and complete.

This helps to prevent users from submitting forms with invalid data, which can cause problems for the application that's processing the form.

Form validation can be performed using a variety of methods, including:

Name Description
Required If enabled, then the field value can't be empty, otherwise an error message is emitted
Custom Validation Rules (rule, value, callback) => {
rule: Verification rule, you can view the verification configuration information through this parameter; rule.field can get the field identifier of the current verification
value: Value of the current field
callback: Callback function (must be called) upon completion of validation; callback('Error message')/ callback(new Error('Error message')). These are two ways to return an error message


  1. The callback() function is also called to verify success in the custom checkup method.
