Setting default values in Form Builder

Thread began 3/27/2010 12:23 pm by dmtompki336862 | Last modified 1/29/2011 3:33 pm by holt3937911 | 942 views | 2 replies |


Setting default values in Form Builder

Well, I found the solution. Apparently there is a field available in the "ValidatedField" action, after the colon, in the parens (:"") -- that serves this purpose. I'm surprised this is no where in the documentation (at least that I could find). Is this the correct use?

Through PHP I'm loading a xml file and setting string variables for the page such as $sourcepath. I've already dealt with the imported and exported data, but can't figure out how set a simple default value for the fields created by FB is already using "value=" to perform the form actions. Is there another attribute that can set the deafult value?

value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("xmlformproc","Science_SourcePath_field"):"")); ?>" class="formTextfield_XLarge" tabindex="1" onblur="hideServerError('Science_SourcePath_field_ServerError');"

Thanks for posting back with the solution that you found. I have helped others to make this update on the form builder pages and have sent this thread to some others here to see if we can get this documented in some fashion.
