An object that describes initial values of the fields.


type InitialValues = {
  [fieldName?: string]: any,
  [fieldGroup?: string]: {
    [fieldName?: string]: any,


There are multiple way to affect initial value of a field. The first value found in the list below will be used as the initial value for a field (sorted by priority):

  1. Form.props.initialValues

  2. Field.props.initialValue

  3. FieldClass.initialValue


import React from 'react'
import { Form, Field } from 'react-advanced-form'
import { Input } from 'react-advanced-form-addons'

export default class ExampleForm extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <Form initialValues={{
        username: 'admin',
        billingAddress: {
          firstName: 'John',
          lastName: 'Maverick',
        deliveryAddress: {
          firstName: 'Cathaline',
          lastName: 'Sunwell',
        <Input name="username" />
        <Field.Group name="billingAddress">
          <Input name="firstName" />
          <Input name="lastName" />
        <Field.Group name="deliveryAddress">
          <Input name="firstName" />
          <Input name="lastName" />

Field's group must also be reflected in the nesting of initialValues keys.
