SyForms - UiPath Forms Designer

thanks for the link…will try this in the syform activity as i need to keep the form open while adding items to the queue.



Just wondering if this it’s also possible to link one of these input field to a secure string password? I haven’t found out how to do this.


Hi @KDJ,

If you intend to enter a password on the form and have it accessible as SecureString you can.

  • Set the property of the textbox on the form with “UseSystemPasswordChar”


  • Convert afterward your string to SecureString using the trick bellow.

I am attaching you a basic example of it, hope that will help.

Hi @Sarvesh_Naik,

First thanks for the feedback :slight_smile: Appreciate it!

What are you trying to achieve while using expose as argument for buttons?

Expose as argument is used so you can access the control later when the form closes as a variable on the workflow, via the Controls button of the show forms activity (see bellow).

The is generally used for controls having a value inside such as textboxes or dropdowns.


Hi @Florent_Salendres

Sorry for getting back to you this late. It’s awfully impolite of me. So apoligies are due.
This was very useful for me, so thanks a lot! I managed to get a secure.string by using the above method. This can be marked as solved!

Thank you!

Kind Regards

Hello every one,

Hi @Bao_Nguyen

Thanks for letting me know.

I made some quick hotfix on the version bellow I believe some days ago for someone, I think it was including this bug fix.

Symphony.Activities.Extension.SyForms. (216.4 KB)

This version is not yet available on Go! nor the gallery.

hi Florent
I test this version on Uipath Studio, and notice that when you are in design mode this also close the window.

Please could you confirm if there is a new version?


Thank you Florent_Salendres,

I will make a test on your new package.

Hi @Florent_Salendres, I’m also running into the same issue as @Bao_Nguyen. I have a form that doesn’t close using the Submit button even though IsClosingForm is set to true.

How exactly do I implement this hotfix? Thank you!

Okay nevermind I got it to work by reinstalling Syforms using the hotifx you attached. Form is now closing using submit button, thank you!
