Name Keyword Types Description



Text or Styled Text

Array of text to display as a rich text list item. Text can be formatted using a!richTextItem().

Nested List


Bulleted List or Numbered List

Determines whether the component is displayed on the interface. When set to false, the component is hidden and is not evaluated. Default: true.

Usage considerations

Using the text and nestedList parameters

  • If text is null or contains an empty array, no text is displayed for the list item.
  • If nestedList is null, no nested list is displayed within the parent list.
  • A nested list doesn't need to be the same type of list as its parent list. Bulleted lists can be nested within numbered lists and vice versa.
