Conditional Fields delete when you change the condition

    Hello,

    I have a situation where there are repeating fields, ie. Roof 1 Rafter Size, Roof 2 Rafter Size, Roof 3 Rafter Size for a lot of different things per roof (like 20). So I tried to use conditions to minimize what the data entry people have to scroll through to enter the data.

    I created a field, Roof Number Data Entry where if it was equal to 1 then only Roof 1 fields would be showing, if it was 2 then only Roof 2 fields show etc. etc.

    but what happens is that you fill in roof 1 data then switch to Roof 2 and the Roof 1 data disappears. every time you switch Roof Number Dta Entry field it removes any data from the previous field.

    Can you help me with this problem?

    Thanks!

    Fabian

    Could you please paste the form ID or the URL where the form is embedded?

    This way we can provide you with an accurate answer

    Hello Jeanette,

    A developer used your software to develop a website, and I haven't been able to get a hold of him and I am not sure that there is a form id or url. Can you let me know how I can get you access to it? Right now I access it with a log on and password. Can you use the link above?

    Thanks!

    Fabian

    Hi again Fabian

    The script you have provided is not related to our form code. What I need is only the URL (your website addresss) where the form is embedded (placed)-- you can copy it from the address bar (http://)

    I make a search using the ID 13124337202, but it doesn't belong to any form

    Hi Jeanette,

    http://ssa.verengosolar.com/admin/?page=add_form_tab_form&form_tid=4&msg=2

    here is the url, but I don't think you will be able to access it since it needs a password. I can contact you more privately and give you the password if that is ok.

    Thank you so much,

    Fabian

    In order to solve the problem, please remove dots '.' from Default Value of your fields.

    If that does not help, please let us know.

    Hi Thanks for the try, but it didn't help. I deleted the dots from the default value on the different R1 and R2 etc. making blank as default. Then logged back in as a user and entered data for R2. When I went back up to enter R3 and immediately back to R2 both R2 and R1 were erased.

    thank you for any help!

    Sincerely,

    Fabian

    @Fabian,

    When a field is hidden by a condition, it becomes considered as not a part of the form - therefore all values entered are cleared. That is the way the conditions system behaves.

    I would suggest that you use the Form Collapse Tool instead (under Survey Tools), such as illustrated below:

    Hope you find this suggestion useful.
