    Cannot Pass Value of Radio Button in URL Parameter

    Asked by athdept on May 24, 2016 at 02:23 PM



    I am trying to pass values from one form to another using URL Parameters. I have a radio button I am trying to pass to the values to the second form but it does not seem to work. The other values are being passed correctly. Could the issue be that both of them have a default value assigned and/or that the "type of hire" is hidden in the 1st form?

    I checked both forms and it looks like the default value that is causing the issue.  The value is passed correctly whether or not the field is hidden in the first form:

    The same value is passed if the form is hidden or not.  Without the default value in the second form, the value it populated in the radio field correctly. 

    I clone both forms to replicate your setup, here is the first form:


    If you fill it out, it will properly populate the second clone from the hidden field in the first.  The only change that was made was removing the default option from the radio field in the second form.
