    Configurable List widget in preview "ignores" the ignore validation option.

    Asked by brandon.carlson on December 11, 2015 at 06:05 PM

    I'm using that 'Configurable List' widget a lot in my forms, it is great. However, when I'm previewing my form and trying to get to the end of it,  have to enter in garbage information to everyplace I have that widget as required. The 'Ignore Validation' option in the preview windows doesn't seem to do its job when it comes to this widget.

    Not a critical thing, but it is a headache when I'm trying to update and preview the last page of a form.

    Hello brandon.carlson,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I did test and I am able to replicate the issue you are having. The "Ignore Validation" feature of the "Preview window" does not seems to work with "Configuration List" widget.

    Let me report it to our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Hi Brandon,

    We are about to finish building our new Preview wizard, and it will go live in this week. We are replacing 'Ignore Validation' with 'Fill Form', an option to fill in your form inputs with dummy data.

    I have noted your issue, and we will code our input filler script to fill Configurable List widget, too.

    Thanks for your feedback.
