    How can I set default alternatives to conditional choices for Radio buttons and Check boxes? A bug?

    Asked by on September 21, 2010 at 01:14 PM

    Please look at my bug demo form at http://www.jotform.com/form/2632803940

    Check the first check box to show conditional choices and discover that no defaults are selected för Radio buttons and Check boxes.
    (The default for Combo boxes work fine.)
    Is this a bug, or have I made an error?

    Compare with the unconditional choises to see that their defaults are all selected.

    Yes, default values are not available for hidden questions.

    I am not sure if this is a bug since if a field is hidden having it selected is not very meainingful. But anyways, I added this to our bug list.
