    Form Tabs widget creates tabs not only for page breaks but also for form collaps fields.

    Asked by dkinney on May 13, 2014 at 03:56 AM

    We have the same issue with "Form Tabs" widget. The widget creates tabs not only for page breaks but also for form collaps fields, which I believe is a bug. I don't have conditions that skip pages.

    Hello dkinney,

    I did few tests and I am unable to replicate the issue you are having. The "Form Tabs" widget only works with the "Page breaks". I did create a test form with the "Form Collapse" and "Form Tabs" widget and it did not create any tab. Please check the following demo forms :

    Form Tabs widget with Form Collapse:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41322135952953?

    Form Tabs widget with Page Break: http://form.jotform.me/form/41314811688456?

    With which form you are having this issue with and we will take a look. I did check few last edited forms in your account but could not find that you have added any "Form Tabs" widget. 

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    I guess this issue happens when the form contains both hidden fields and page breaks, your example has either one or another. I have added the widget to the form with the largest number of responses in my account and I have 59 tabs, while I have only about 10 page breaks. Please review and fix if you can. I just wanted to let you know that I had some issues with saving changes to my form, and I have just saved a bunch of changes. I am not sure if it is possible that changes are revereted when tech support on your side accesses the form, but want to ask you to be very careful while accessing my form. Thanks.

     As far as I know, the widget is inttended to work with Page Breakers only.

    I just made a test form  and it works just fine, it got 2 page breakers and 1 collapse, the form tab shows 2 as it should.

    Please share with us the form where you see the problem for further investigation.
