I have an adaptive form which I am pre-filling with some data from the currently logged in user. I also have a bunch of drop downs distributed among some child panels of the form. These should show their default value "Please Select" when the form is initialised. In order to do that, I needed to add this value to the prefill.jsp so that the drop downs are pre-filled.
But the drop downs are on child panels which are dynamically hidden/shown and when I generate a default DoR it 'detects' the value "Please Select" and adds it and the entire child panel to the DoR.
Is there a way to exclude them from the DoR when they are on a hidden panel and also have them show the default text?
Any help is very appreciated. Thanks, Alex
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can enable the "Exclude fields from DoR If hidden"property at the form level to exclude all the hidden fields from DOR.
This will be available in 6.2 as well as 6.1 FP1 hotfix.
About default value for drop down, you can use placeholder text to display default text.
