Ant Design Form component for seamless conduct

Ant Design form is a React UI library that has abundance of easy-to-use components that are useful for building elegant user interfaces.

One of the components is <Form>. It provides built-in functions for collect, validate and submit user input. <Form> in Ant Design is using a decorator pattern for the fields. This is not a problem until you want to separate the form and fields.

Here is a simple example.

Cool! Now let’s add layout and submit method in our component.

Click on submit button and this is the output you get


That’s how easy it is to make a form with Ant design. If you’d like to learn more about Ant, check out their docs.
