Status Box

The Status Box control is used to display a status message on other controls, and is commonly used in conjunction with input controls.

Like almost all SPARK controls, you can trigger events that are fired when the user interacts with the control (see the Event and Methods sections below and the Event Handling article for more information).

This control is most commonly used when wanting to add a status message to other controls, and is generally attached to a typical form/input control.


Text Expression Formula text expression


Width Width in px, %, or em

Color Style

Status Style None, Default, Dark, Simple

Float Status Enable/disable floating status bar; if disabled, status bar will move other elements out of its way


Show Status Enable showing the status

Show Validation Errors Show status validation errors

Status as HTML Status includes html


This example shows a Date Picker control inside of a Status Box control.

These are the configuration option settings...

The HTML is set in the Help area under General.  The text will be italicized.

This is the result...


With the Status Box Control, there are 2 types of event handlers:

  • On Load When the page loads
  • On Status Click When the status box is clicked

You can use JavaScript logic to affect the effects of the control, depending on the event. More information on using these controls can be found in the Event Handling article.


For detailed information on the available methods for this control, access the JS Doc file.
