Auto populate default value

Hi

We have a drop down field were user can select a location

 

We then have a another field for a ticket reference were depending on the location select, a code is entered is automatically populated and the user is then allowed to add to this eg

 

Location DropDown has the option "Basingstoke-(BAS)", Other options

Ticket referernce would automatically add "BAS-" (because Basingstoke-(BAS) was selected in Location

 

User can then append to BAS- with a reference number, thus making the "Ticket Reference" "BAS-1234"

 

We have in the "Ticket Reference" Default field this formula...


If(DataCardValue4.Selected.Value="Basingstoke-(BAS)","BAS-","false")

 

This work fine, as saves ok into a SharePoint List.

 

However when you "Edit" the form again it loses the saved data (eg BAS-1234) and reverts back to "BAS-"

 

Any idea how to get the Edited form to keep the data that is saved?

 

Thanks

Re: Auto populate default value

Your issue is in the Default property.  You need to check to see if the form is in New mode or Edit mode.

If it is in New mode, then you want the formula you have to function.

If it is in Edit mode, then you want to use the value in the data column.

 

If(yourForm.Mode=FormMode.New, 
    If(DataCardValue4.Selected.Value="Basingstoke-(BAS)","BAS-","false"),
Parent.Default
)

Of course - I'm a little suspect on the If statement you have now.  This will say that the default value will be "BAS-" or "false".  Not sure that's what you want.

But, this will help you display the actual field value when you are not in New mode (i.e. Display and Edit)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
