    Email field, problem with "Hint example" preference

    Asked by guandalino on September 07, 2010 at 04:47 PM

    How to reproduce:

    1. create a new form

    2. add an email field

    3. select the field > show properties > hint example : delete the default text (ex: myname@example.com)

    4. save the form

    5. go to my forms

    6. change the form clicking on modify form icon


    Instead of a blank string I see the old text, i.e. ex: myname@example.com. (Firefox 3.6.6 on Linux)


    Do you think you can fix this?



    best regards.

    Thanks for the nice step-by-step description. I added this to our bug list.

    A temporary solution is to instead of deleting all hint text, replace it with multiple space characters.
