Name Keyword Types Description



Text or Rich Text Item

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

A bulleted or numbered list to nest within the rich text list item. Use a!richTextBulletedList() or a!richTextNumberedList().




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.


To experiment with examples, copy and paste the expression into an interface object.
