Keeping a field visible

Is this a bug?



I have a form that has a lot of HIDDEN fields that are made visible when certain criteria are met. This function is working perfectly. Initially!



However when the form is submitted by e-Mail (either PDF or XML) or saved as, all of these fields become HIDDEN again... even though the criteria is still there. It becomes necessary to deselect and reselect the various objects to make the fields and their data visible again.



Or am I missing something? Is there a method to lock a field down so it remains visible (and stays that way) when data is present???



This is some sample JS used on a check box:

if(this.rawValue == "1")

{

HIDDEN_subLivelink.presence = "visible";

HIDDEN_sprLivelinkOW.presence = "visible";

HIDDEN_sprLivelinkOW2.presence = "visible";

}

else

{

HIDDEN_subLivelink.presence = "hidden";

HIDDEN_sprLivelinkOW.presence = "hidden";

HIDDEN_sprLivelinkOW2.presence = "hidden";

}
