    I keep going into the prefrences section of my spinners and erasing the default value of 0 so that it is blank then press save however each time i re-open the form the default values are back at 0.

    I want to hide these items on my form submission but they keep showing up!

    Help!

    Hey there,

     

    I would suggest, instead of keeping the field empty; try replacing "0" with "-" (hyphen) and then save it.

     

    Hopefully this should hide the default value.

     

    Thank You,

    John

    As John has so kindly suggested, you can simply change the default value of your spinner fields to a hyphen (-) character:

    This is because our Spinner fields were designed to have some number in them, and if you leave them empty, they will be populated with the default value of zero.

    To work around their default behavior, you can use almost any character that is not a number - such as a hyphen (-), hashtag (#), or even any letter.

    Please let us know how it goes, or if you need any further assistance, and we will be happy to help.
