    Prepopulating Hidden Field From Query String

    Asked by kshaughnessy on September 02, 2011 at 03:04 PM

    I have a form into which I want to prepopulate 2 fields. One of these field is hidden, the other is not hidden. When I submit the URL with 2 parameters, only the non-hidden field gets populated. The hidden field has no value (when I use "View Source") in my browser and also in the email I receive when the form is submitted.


    Is there a trick to prepopulating hidden fields?
