We use typescript to create the Type definition. You can view directly in IDE. But you can still check the type definition here.


Prop Description Type Default
component Customize Form render component string | Component | false form
fields Control Form fields status. Only use when in Redux FieldData[] -
form Set form instance created by useForm FormInstance Form.useForm()
initialValues Initial value of Form Object -
name Config name with FormProvider string -
preserve Preserve value when field removed boolean false
validateMessages Set validate message template ValidateMessages -
onFieldsChange Trigger when any value of Field changed (changedFields, allFields) => void -
onFinish Trigger when form submit and success (values) => void -
onFinishFailed Trigger when form submit and failed ({ values, errorFields, outOfDate }) => void -
onValuesChange Trigger when any value of Field changed (changedValues, values) => void -


Prop Description Type Default
dependencies Will re-render if dependencies changed NamePath[] -
getValueFromEvent Specify how to get value from event (..args: any[]) => any -
getValueProps Customize additional props with value. This prop will disable valuePropName (value) => any -
initialValue Field initial value any -
name Field name path NamePath -
normalize Normalize value before update (value, prevValue, prevValues) => any -
preserve Preserve value when field removed boolean false
rules Validate rules Rule[] -
shouldUpdate Check if Field should update boolean | (prevValues, nextValues) => boolean -
trigger Collect value update by event trigger string onChange
validateTrigger Config trigger point with rule validate string | string[] onChange
valuePropName Config value mapping prop with element string value


Prop Description Type Default
name List field name path NamePath[] -
children Render props for listing fields (fields: { name: NamePath }[], operations: ListOperations) => ReactNode -


Form component default create an form instance by Form.useForm. But you can create it and pass to Form also. This allow you to call some function on the form instance.

const Demo = () => {
  const [form] = Form.useForm();
  return <Form form={form} />;

For class component user, you can use ref to get form instance:

class Demo extends React.Component {
  setRef = form => {
    // Form instance here

  render() {
    return <Form ref={this.setRef} />;
Prop Description Type
getFieldValue Get field value by name path (name: NamePath) => any
getFieldsValue Get list of field values by name path list (nameList?: (NamePath[]) => any) | true
getFieldError Get field errors by name path (name: NamePath) => string[]
getFieldsError Get list of field errors by name path list (nameList?: NamePath[]) => FieldError[]
isFieldsTouched Check if list of fields are touched (nameList?: NamePath[], allTouched?: boolean) => boolean
isFieldTouched Check if a field is touched (name: NamePath) => boolean
isFieldValidating Check if a field is validating (name: NamePath) => boolean
resetFields Reset fields status (fields?: NamePath[]) => void
setFields Set fields status (fields: FieldData[]) => void
setFieldsValue Set fields value (values) => void
submit Trigger form submit () => void
validateFields Trigger fields to validate (nameList?: NamePath[], options?: ValidateOptions) => Promise


Prop Description Type Default
validateMessages Config global validateMessages template ValidateMessages -
onFormChange Trigger by named form fields change (name, { changedFields, forms }) => void -
onFormFinish Trigger by named form fields finish (name, { values, forms }) => void -

📋 Interface


string | number | (string | number)[]


Prop Type
touched boolean
validating boolean
errors string[]
name string | number | (string | number)[]
value any


Prop Type
enum any[]
len number
max number
message string
min number
pattern RegExp
required boolean
transform (value) => any
type string
validator (rule, value, callback: (error?: string) => void, form) => Promise | void
whitespace boolean
validateTrigger string | string[]


To keep sync with rc-form legacy usage of validator, we still provides callback to trigger validate finished. But in rc-field-form, we strongly recommend to return a Promise instead.


Prop Type
add (initValue: any) => void
remove (index: number) => void


Validate Messages provides a list of error template. You can ref here for fully default templates.

Prop Description

max Rule max prop
min Rule min prop
name Field name
pattern Rule pattern prop
type Rule type prop

Different with rc-form

rc-field-form is try to keep sync with rc-form in api level, but there still have something to change:

1. Field will not keep snyc with initialValues when un-touched

In rc-form, field value will get from initialValues if user not operate on it. It's a bug but user use as a feature which makes fixing will be a breaking change and we have to keep it. In Field Form, this bug will not exist anymore. If you want to change a field value, use setFieldsValue instead.

2. Remove Field will not clean up related value

We do lots of logic to clean up the value when Field removed before. But with user feedback, remove exist value increase the additional work to keep value back with conditional field.

3. Nest name use array instead of string

In rc-form, we support like user.name to be a name and convert value to { user: { name: 'Bamboo' } }. This makes '.' always be the route of variable, this makes developer have to do additional work if name is real contains a point like app.config.start to be app_config_start and parse back to point when submit.

Field Form will only trade ['user', 'name'] to be { user: { name: 'Bamboo' } }, and user.name to be { ['user.name']: 'Bamboo' }.

4. Remove validateFieldsAndScroll

Since findDomNode is marked as warning in StrictMode. It seems over control of Form component. We decide to remove validateFieldsAndScroll method and you should handle it with you own logic:

  <Field name="username">
    <input ref={this.inputRef} />

5. getFieldsError always return array

rc-form returns null when no error happen. This makes user have to do some additional code like:

(form.getFieldsError('fieldName') || []).forEach(() => {
  // Do something...

Now getFieldsError will return [] if no errors.

6. Remove callback with validateFields

Since ES8 is support async/await, that's no reason not to use it. Now you can easily handle your validate logic:

async function() {
  try {
    const values = await form.validateFields();
  } catch (errorList) {
    errorList.forEach(({ name, errors }) => {
      // Do something...

Notice: Now if your validator return an Error(message), not need to get error by e => e.message. FieldForm will handle this.

7. preserve is default to false

In rc-form you should use preserve to keep a value cause Form will auto remove a value from Field removed. Field Form will always keep the value in the Form whatever Field removed. But you can still use preserve=false to disable value keeping since 1.5.0.

8. setFields not trigger onFieldsChange and setFieldsValue not trigger onValuesChange

In rc-form, we hope to help user auto trigger change event by setting to make redux dispatch easier, but it's not good design since it makes code logic couping.

Additionally, user control update trigger onFieldsChange & onValuesChange event has potential dead loop risk.
