    How can I prepopulate textbox? Have to use

    Asked by QTLCenters on July 11, 2016 at 03:56 PM

    Prepopulating the textbox gives us better control over our forms in that when recycling a form, we don't have to rewrite lots of it, just the prepopulated lines in the textbox... such as the address on the sample link below.

    I can't find where to edit what goes into that box... where previously, it was no problem at all.  What am I overlooking?

    Simply click on the Text Box gear icon, then on "Edit Properties", click on "Advanced" and scroll down, there you will see the "Default value" box, where you can enter the data you wan to prepopulate:
