    "Clear Form" button confirmation alert is titled "about://(null)" on iPhone

    Asked by btemp on July 09, 2013 at 10:58 AM

    When using the "Clear Form" button on an iPhone, the confirmation "popup" alert box which appears has the title of "about://(null)".

    Although the message displayed within the alert box (below the title) is perfectly clear (it says "Are you sure you want to clear the form?"), the title of the alert box is quite unsightly and unhelpful with regards to telling the user what is going on.

    My suggestion would be to remove the title (if that's possible) or use the title of "Clear Form Fields" or something along those lines. Or, perhaps just title it "Confirm" or "Please Confirm" or "Alert" if you want to keep it simple. Of course, there may be a more standard convention that exists.

    Can you please send us a screenshot of that error? I couldn't replicate that from my end: https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/screen/zrhip87whg.png

    The difference between what you see and what I am describing appears to be because you used a form directly on JotForm.com whereas I am referring to a form that is embedded using the standard script embed code.

    I am unable to attach the screenshot, but confirmed that the title of the alert is fine when using the form directly, but is as I stated in my initial post when the form is embedded using the embed code.

    Thanks for the help.

    I've found it. Let me forward this thread to our developers for them to check further. We'll keep you updated.

    While waiting, I would suggest re-embedding your form using our iframe method: How to Get Form iFrame Codes. Iframe looks good ( https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/pages/btemp.html )


    Thanks for reporting.
