Information noteSTABLE.

This API is reliable and breaking changes are unlikely.


The text definition property template can be used to add a custom property of text type. When defining a text property, the following fields can be used:


This field is optional for links. Can be either string, integer, number, array or boolean.

Used for defining how the property is visualized in the property panel. Used to override the default component that comes with the type setting.

This field is mandatory for a link property and should always be "text".


Used for defining the label that is displayed on the link.


Defining a custom text

Defining a custom property of text type can look like below.


Information noteCustomization of properties always start with items:.
define( [
function ( ) {

	return {
		definition : {
			type : "items",
			component : "accordion",
			items: {
				settings: {
					uses: "settings",
					items: {
						MyText: {
							label:"My text",
							component: "text"
		paint: function ($element) {
			//add your rendering code here
			$element.html( "props-text" );

} );
This is what it looks like in the property panel

An interface titled "text" with the subtitle "Appearance". Under "Appearance"  there are two hide and show buttons called "General" and "My text". Under "My text", there is text that reads "My text".
