    Seems to be a bug related to default value of sliders

    Asked by thedigitalyogi on March 01, 2012 at 03:04 PM

    Hi there,

    I have a form- http://form.jotformeu.com/form/20605813644349 and I have set the default value of a couple of sliders to 1.

    However, when I receive an email, if the sliders weren't touched during the form filling, the value (which should be 1) is left black in the email and in the submissions / reports.

    If I now change the default value to 0, so that a user has to explicitly move the slider to a positive value, and refresh the form, it still shows the previous default value in its place.


    Any ideas, please?


    All the best, James

    Hi Neil,

    cheers for the quick response; I've changed the sliders to simple numerical text entry boxes in the meantime.

    I noticed the same bug when I initiallly changed the slider to a spinner as well, so it appears not linked to the object itself.

    Secondly, there seemed to be some weirtd lag problems last night that I thought were connected, but may not have been:

    I found that if I changed the property of a slider so that its default value was "1" rather than "0", this was shown when I previewed the form. However, when I refreshed the published version, the changed had not been applied.

    This kind of error was happening for at least a couple of hours last night, with changes not seeming to be applied immediately or with complete consistency.

    I hope this ramble gives a little more info to help with a bug fix.

    All best
