    Matrix dynamique (Required field): Deleting rows from the middle triggers validation error.

    Asked by priyanks on April 29, 2015 at 03:46 AM

    Yes, I also found this issue later. Right now it is not a required field so you are observing this behavior.

    I found that if you delete any row other than last then it will delete all other consecutive rows. It is a issue of this widget. So if it was a required field than by no way you can edit the form.

    Try to test and give your e-mail id as Author e-mail id. You will receive submission e-mail with edit link and your submission data. then you can actually observe what's going wrong!!!

    Try to fix it as soon as possible b'coz it is impacting our productivity!

    Hello priyanks,

    I am able to replicate the issue you are having. When we edit the submission data of a required matrix Dynamique widget, it seems to trigger a validation error if any of the rows other than last one is deleted. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    I am reporting it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Yes, Please mark the issue as a blocker as we cannot proceed and our critical tasks are halted.
    Also, we can't replace this widget with any other b'coz of the data loss issue!

    Hello, 

    We've fixed the validation error on edit - the error will only be triggered if the Matrix Dynamique widget has no data at all. 

    We apologize for this inconvenience - and if you experience further difficulty, please let us know
