Form Elements not Binding

Form Elements not Binding

Latest version of Data Bridge.

I'm adding a form -- there are four elements (name, contact, phone, and e-mail). When the wizard is complete the e-mail does not appear in the bindings panel for the form.

Are there any prohibited characters in element names that might prevent the e-mail text box from binding??

the hyphen is not a valid character for an element name.

form elements names may contain only letters, numbers, and the underscore character. the first character of the name must be a letter

e-mail <- not valid due to hyphen
_email <- not valid, first character is not a letter
3email <- not valid, first character is not a letter
e_mail <- valid
email <- valid
email3 <- valid

Okay -- I set the element names as per the attached image -- Email still does not bind.

??

I've tried deleting the cache. . .

send a copy of the page and a screen shot of trying to bind the email address.

Here's the page.

Not sure what screenshot you want. The other three fields bind to the form in the Bindings panel -- the email field does not.

I've attached a screenshot of the Bindings panel. . .

The element type is set to email:

type="email"

the bindings panel does not recognize the email element type.

change the type to text to use the bindings panel:
type="text"


you can change it back after using the bindings panel.

I have logged a bug in our system for this.
