    "Spinner Field" Default value of blank possible?

    Asked by gciad on August 04, 2011 at 02:19 PM

    I've got a form with a ton of spinner fields for a lo-fi ordering form. It's a series of products, each with a spinner to indicate quantity.

    Here's the output I currently get via email...

    Current Output


    What I would like is for fields which have '0' (or no product ordered) to instead be blank.

    Here's the rub: I have had some success with this, but it's temporary...


    I've also tried pulling down the source code and specifying value="_" to no avail... thoughts? http://www.jotform.com/form/11630043159

    Have you tried using a hyphen " - " as the default value? Tried it on my end and it worked perfectly.





    Hope you find this answer useful. Thanks!

    Ah-ha! The magical hyphen, not underscore.

    Thanks very much Neil!
