    Dynamic Dropdown Widget - "Select" text option on child dropdown keeps moving to the bottom

    Asked by dlasson on November 05, 2015 at 05:07 PM


    When I select a month from the drop-down menu, the first year in my values list appears in the "Year" drop-down. Instead, I would like the "Year" drop-down to default to "Select" until the user selects a year.

    Basically you have to place the "select" text on top of the child optionns before 2000, but unfortunately there semes to be a problem with it. When I tried adding "select" text on top, it keeps moving to the bottom when viewed on the live form. I will forward this to our developers for further investigation. You will be informed here once this is fixed.

    We've fixed the bug. The "Select" text will remain at the top.
