Why is prepopulated values on any text areas looks like a hint text?

    Type is entered in to a text box and looks fine before submitting. Then, when returning to the form to make further changes, the type entered in the text box looks grayed out like hint copy would. 

     

    If one leaves the copy that now looks hinted and hits submit, the text disappears upon returning to the form.

     

    Please help.

    Hello sunilv,

    Thanks for reporting this problem. I was able to reproduce it. so I did a quick fix right away. Sorry for the delay though, seems to be a bug when default data and a hint are combined. Please do a test and post back if the problem still persist.

    Thank you,
    Kenneth

    Hi Kenneth,
    Thanks for your response. But the problem still exists.
    I've been using the forms successfully for a year or so. This issue just came up a few weeks ago, when there was an update released.
    It looks like the solution is to remove all hint copy. It seems to work then.
    Thanks! Sunil

    Hey sunilv, thanks for reporting back, have you tried to clean your browser cache? Also can you confirm that you have put a hint on the textarea as well as Default data and then the problem is the default data looks like a hint? if so. I did a quick fix to it, you just need to clean your browser cache, to be able to get rid of the bug. Here is a sample for you.

    Thanks,
    Kenneth
