TS958: Deleted field reverts to its previous value after entry
Category

Bug

Problem

A field with a default abacus will not store a default value if...

  1. The record was previously entered with a value in this field and
  2. You simply delete the stored value and tab out, letting the default 'drop in' to the field.

The conditions under which this bug strikes have been pinned down and it only strikes if all of the following are true...

  1. The view has an option 0 post attached and
  2. The view's Keep Current attribute is off.
Solution

Until we release a version of Helix that fixed this bug, turn the Keep Current attribute on for forms that include both defaulted values and an option 0 post.

Status

This bug has been reproduced in our test lab.

History

This bug has existed since the release of Helix Express 3.0.

Scope

Helix RADE, Engine, and Client/Server.
