ResetForm / DelayOutput bug?

I'm experiencing a bug when using ResetForm() on a form with a textbox that has DelayOutput=true (and default value "").


If I type in that textbox and immediately click a button with the ResetForm() command, that textbox does not reset, and persistently fails to reset upon further button clicks.


If I then type in the textbox again, allow a second or two for the delayed output to process, and then click the button, it does reset.


Can anyone else recreate/confirm this behaviour?

Re: ResetForm / DelayOutput bug?

It would seem to me that it is doing exactly what you are telling it to do.  If you hit the reset right after you fill in the text box it delays output on that text box so the reset happens before the textbox output is provided.  If you wait until the delayed output happens then the reset applies to the textbox also because the output has had time to hit the text box. What do you think it should do?

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

Re: ResetForm / DelayOutput bug?

From a user experience point-of-view, I think it should reset that textbox, but I can understand functionally why it doesn't.


However, the bug is that, having reset the form before the delayed output, you can then wait and hit the reset button again and it still won't reset that textbox. You can come back five minutes later and it still won't - until you edit the textbox again.
