Show property in Form Builder for a custom form control

Tommy De Notarpietro asked on November 18, 2016 11:54

Is it possible for a custom form control (used for online forms) to show a property in the "Form Builder"? If yes, how can we do it?

I tried "Display field in the editing form" and "Display in simple mode".

There is a way to extend the Form builder by custom form control:

in the file \CMS\CMSModules\AdminControls\Controls\Class\FormBuilder\FieldProperties.ascx.cs it is hardcoded for which properties it displays in the LoadProperties method. I would imagine customizing that would be the only way to load any additional properties.
