objectName any Yes The variable name of the object to build the form control for.
property string Yes The name of the property to use in the form control.
association string No The name of the association that the property is located on. Used for building nested forms that work with nested properties. If you are building a form with deep nesting, simply pass in a list to the nested object, and CFWheels will figure it out.
position string No The position used when referencing a hasMany relationship in the association argument. Used for building nested forms that work with nested properties. If you are building a form with deep nestings, simply pass in a list of positions, and CFWheels will figure it out.
