Forms are one of the common ways the user interacts with applications, they are almost everywhere. While making a purchase, creating a profile, or signing up for newsletters, building forms the right way can easily boost your user interaction as the application becomes more friendly. I will be giving some minor and easy tips that can help you build better forms as a frontend developer or even as UI/UX designer.

1. Test Your Forms

There are times when our application is a specific target to some users, to make sure that maximum users are comfortable while using your application, you must test your forms on real users. However, there will be different cases as target markets are different and your forms need to be tested extensively with real users.

2. Use Field States

Form fields can have different states based on the user’s action, try to design every form element in all of those states. Start with the basic text input field and then try to customize it with border color, text weights, and shadows for different field states.

3. Spacing Lable

Lable is a small explanatory text with the text field, in most cases, it is simply the description of what is required inside that form field and if your form has a lot of fields, then make sure to space them evenly and far enough to avoid the confusing look in your forms.

4. Use Single Colum Forms

There are multiple reasons for using single-column forms in your application instead of multiple columns forms. When it comes to smaller screens such as mobile devices single-column forms are more friendly as they are more readable when it comes to mobile devices because you have a small path to follow with your eyes instead of jumping between blocks.

5. Use Radio Buttons

In cases, if you have very few options that will be not changed in the future, then it is recommended to use radio buttons for such options instead of a drop-down menu. Using the radio button also adds a more consistent look to your application as users don't have to find these options whenever they are using the application.
