    Selected Option in a Checkbox field does not work if the option has a hyperlink.

    Asked by ICPS2017 on January 31, 2017 at 09:43 AM

    Dear all,

    I'm trying to build a form with a standard checkbox containing an hyperlink. I would like this checkbox to be selected by default, however, this seems to be impossibile. Even if I specify "selected", this doesn't work. It works normally if I remove the hyperlink.

    How can I solve this problem? Thanks for your help!

    Unfortunately, the default selection does not work if the text is hyperlinked. I have forwarded a request on your behalf to our back-end team to make this work. You will be notified via this thread when this gets fixed.
