    Edit mode not showing hidden fields in Chrome

    Asked by Hardyc on March 31, 2016 at 08:32 PM


    I have a travel request form that uses the advantage of hidden fields show in Edit mode.

    I have a approval code field hidden when the requestor fills out the form, but the approver sees the field because he goes into the form in edit mode.  It works great in IE, but doesn't work in Chrome.

    please help :)

    Further to this - I have found it is happening with the latest version of Chrome (49.0.2623.110 m) but with older versions the form worked as expected.

    I think that is because the field is manually set to hide in the form. You don't need to manually hide the field because the conditional logic will automatically do it for you. I've changed your settings, please check the edit link again and let us know if it does the same issue. 

    Here's the show/hide setting:
