    Preview Before Submit Widget: Pressing Enter key disables the Preview function of the widget

    Asked by jonathan on September 07, 2016 at 09:31 PM

    I noticed as well that you can press Enter key and the preview widget option can be bypassed.

    I think its a glitch on the widget. So I will notify our developer about this glitch so they can check also.

    It may have nothing to do with the Preview before submit widget. 

    Here is a form I just created - https://form.jotform.com/62511857778973

    Is that normal behavior (enter key submits the form)?

    The thing is there's a Preview widget on the form. It doesn't do a Preview when you only hit Enter key (not using the Submit button)

    On your form, the preview button has been renamed to "Submit". :-)

     

    So that's not the submit button, but the Preview button -- I cloned the form https://form.jotform.com/62519060463958

    You have to click on the preview button to open the preview page.

    ~~

    So hitting enter submits the form despite the preview before submit widget being on the form. 

    I'm wondering if that is a bug altogether.

    Yup. This is what my ticket was about. :-)

    Here is a video on the difference also.

    I wanted to use the Preview widget as a warning page before final submission... but if you use enter key, this workaround will not work.

    Ok. 

    Two questions:

    1. I really don't see what we could change in the Preview Before Submit widget to prevent hitting the enter key from submitting the form

    2. I think it's a submit button bug - I remember that being a problem a couple of years ago. You should probably report it.

    I see. Upon reviewing, I think you are right.

    Hitting the enter key actually have nothing to do with the Preview Before Submit widget. So I agree that this is not the bug.  It was #2 instead.

    #2

    Yes. I remember it as well. I'll create a separate test form and report for it.

    Thank you for the assistance. I guess this ticket is now resolved :-)

    Cheers
