    Issue with dropdown when options are enclosed with less than and greater than symbol

    Asked by william_maher_perron on February 16, 2017 at 06:42 PM

    Hi, 

    I have a small issue with my form, when I had this list to the dropdown in my form:

    <60

    60

    70

    80

    90

    100

    110

    120

    130

    >130

     

    when i remove the: (>130 & <60) the form works fine, but with those it simply doesn't work, and i only see the 130 value.

    You're right. I was able to reproduce it here but I'm not quite sure why you're using it that way. Is there any particular reason why you need to use these codes in the options?

    These symbols are probably executed as codes instead of plain text that's why it removes the options enclosed with < and >. How about using other symbols like asterisk? That should not have any problems.
