    Cannot click on fields but can tab into them

    Asked by bdewitt on November 06, 2012 at 05:19 PM

    If you select a 29.99 subscription on my form you will see a list for a color,make,model appear. I have these feilds shrunk down in my settings to keep them all on one line. However I have noticed that when trying to fill out the form I cannot click into these boxes but am able to use the tab key to tab into them and fill them out. I redesigned the form and made these feilds expanded and all on their own line and then I am able to click into them. What is going on??

    You are much right on this. I was able to reproduce the issue in a clone of your form.

    However, I made a test form with shrinked text boxes and could not reproduce it

    People is not able to click on the fields, unless they use the tab key to move among these text boxes

    I am inmmediately forwarding this issue to of our developers so they can take care of it as soon as possible

    Issue is triggered when Collapse element has following properties

    - Status = Open
    - Visibility = Hidden

    example http://www.jotform.com/form/23112569565961

    As a possible workaround one should use

    - Status = Closed
    - Visibility = Visible

    example http://www.jotform.com/form/23113363389958


    When using this workaround solution, you shoul add descriptive text to form collapse element like "Please Choose Vechile Properties" or "Click Here to Choose Vehicle Properties".


    We will examine about a fix to this situation. Normally, it should work with the users default problem.
