Stop reset of 'New Form' on SubmitForm?

Hi all,


I have looked at similar threads but nothing is hitting the outcome I am wanting.


Basically I am trying to submit a New Form and then once it has submitted the form it does not reset the values to blank and instead if I hit submit again it would submit the same information again, giving the user the ability to tweak the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th entries without having to enter all the values again.


Is this possible?


Thanks in advance!

Re: Stop reset of 'New Form' on SubmitForm?

Hi @TWolsten,

For the fields that you wanted to keep the same, you would use the default property of the control in the card.  So if the form was Form1 and it had a City card, you would change the default in the control inside the card from Parent.Default to Form1.LastSubmit.City.  However, you will still want to have the form work correctly for Edit mode so an If() function is needed. The Default property of the control should be If(Form1.Mode = 1, Form1.LastSubmit. FieldName,  Parent.Default).  Form.Mode property will return 0, 1, 2 based on the form mode. Below are what these values correspond to:

  • 0 – Edit Mode
  • 1 – New Mode
  • 2 – Display Mode
