Retool 2.74.17

Editable Text and Number

We’ve overhauled Editable Text and added a new Editable Number. Like all of our new inputs, these offer brand new configuration options, built-in and custom validation rules, and expanded style editor support. These components were also built with accessibility and data density in mind.

The Editable inputs display static text that can be edited on click. In edit mode, Editable Text has all the same powerful, new functionality of our Text Input component, including: configurable prefix/suffix text, a prefix/suffix icon, read only mode, and more. In addition, Editable Number supports the functionality of the Number Input component, including currency support, percentage formatting, and control over decimal places and padding zeros.

Helper text

All keyboard inputs–like Text Input, Number Input, Editable Text and Number, Currency, and more–can now optionally configure a tooltip that is visible below the input only on focus:

Like the regular tooltip, helper text supports GitHub flavored markdown.

We’re continuing to ship new components each week! Drop us a note at if you have any feedback. Editable Text and Number are rolled out to all plans on Retool cloud, and will be included in the next on-premise release.
