I have the defaultmode set to new and also I am invoking the NewForm function when pressing the navigation button to the page where the form is.
My understanding is that it is EditForm or ViewForm that populates data from datasource. Therefore your navigate Button should rather be: EditForm(YourFormName)
New form don't populate forms, is supposed to be blank
I've seen here:
that it says it should be populating the default values while in newform though.
The EditForm talks about "existing record" and that is what I supposed you are looking for
The NewForm talks about "default values", these values are not in your sharepoint list, they are on the form when the user has not entered anything before it is saved. for Example, you can put Now() as a default in the Datepicker. This default is not in the sharepoint list therefore you cany populate from the list. however, when you open the newform the defaultdate Now() woul show in the field.
no, they're not in my SharePoint list. in the columns you can set a default value for lets say the choose type.
This is what I'm talking about:
and I want that to be pulled into the form.
