    hidden box field not triggering conditions on edit mode preventing us to edit the submission data

    Asked by jasonsvctech on January 08, 2016 at 08:02 PM

    the regular form works fine but the edit php version has all the sudden gone hokey.

    I have gone step by step through conditions.

    Even the submissions version of the form doesn't work. Even the form submission on jotform with theedit function is hokey.

     

    The regular form works fine and the conditions perform as indicated

     

    for example here is an edit link for a submitted form to see the problem I am experiencing-: https://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formID=60057499088972&sid=328109911851852415&mode=edit

     

    the regular form behaves fine

    I use two versions with url parameters here are the links

     

    https://form.jotform.com/60057499088972?type=qar

    https://form.jotform.com/60057499088972?type=pat

     

    both work as they are supposed to, but when i go to edit using the link way above or even go into the form submissions for this form on jotform.com

    it gets hokey- not bad condition hokey, but wierd hokey...please help

    I was able to reproduce the problem. It seems the hidden box does not trigger conditions on edit mode. This is causing the target fields to remain hidden.

    I have now raised this to our developers for further investigation. You will be informed here once this is fixed.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    This should now be fixed.  Conditions for hidden fields will work when editing in the both the submissions page and from an edit link.

    Please let us know if you continue to have problems.

    Regards,

    Nicholas
