    Caracters disappearing after customers fill up a required field.

    Asked by savon on May 22, 2010 at 01:59 PM



    I have a required field named "Address" that is showing up when a customer choose "Check" within the payment method menu.


    Strangely, when filling up the "Address" field, caracters appears as "Hint example" style (clear gray) and when we click in the next field, everything that was in the "Address" field disappear and we have to fill it up again...


    I checked an re-checked all Properties several times but I don't see where I could have made a mistake...


    My form is here : http://www.jotform.com/?formID=1315705338


    Thank for your help.

    That's how the "Hint Example" works. What you want is "Default Value".
