Native components are the core components that come pre packaged with Journey Maestro. Native components can be customized and shared.

Native components are the basic widgets that are supplied with Maestro. These include components for entering a single data value, such as data entry fields, checkboxes, radio buttons, and dropdown lists. There are also a number of more sophisticated components such as numeric and number fields, and more. Many components have at least two sub-parts, the label and the data entry area. Some also include an icon (such as a currency indicator), and most will allow for an optional help icon to display help text. A date field is arguably a more complex component, because it includes a pop-up calendar control - but is still really just a simple component.Under the covers, a simple component consists of an HTML definition, a Maestro descriptor that tells Maestro what properties to display in the Properties tab, and optional JavaScript and CSS. However, as a Maestro user, you are shielded from the underlying complexity, and simply drag and drop the component into your form. These components are usually shipped in the product, although they can be built by anyone with HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills.
