[#1291] Required fields still required when hidden

9 years 6 months ago #116086 by softforge
I have just found another related bug. With the password field, there are 2 fields, the main password and an additional password for verification. If you set in a plan to hide a password field, it only hides the first password field leaving the verification password field visible. If you have set this field to required, you cannot register because the verification password field (which doesn't hide) is still required.

There is actually a big problem with ALL fields.

Now on 1.03 and the form submits in firefox but in ie6 and ie7 all the fields that are hidden as they are not needed in a particular plan are throwing an error. See the attached image. These are fields that are not in this particular plan so the person filling the profile would not see them to correct them. In firefox , same plan with same details submits fine.

The image shows ALL the fields that are in a plan, yet the alert box is referring to fields which are in other plans

I can also confirm this issue with IE6 and IE7. I noticed this post has been tagged with #1291 so hopefully this is now a confirmed bug(s) and will be fixed in the next version.

Just to summarise, the following are the 5 issues detailed in the thread related to required fields when hidden:

- Javascript alert box still appears in IE6 and IE7
- Fields of type textarea are always required
- Only 1 of the password fields is hidden so is still required
- Server-side validation still occurs on hidden fields (mainly affecting image and file fields)
- Data entered into a field which gets hidden is still submitted and validated (suggest clearing hidden fields on submit)

I know you hate this questions so I am sorry, but could you give some idea of when the next version of CB Subs will be released. Are we talking days, weeks or months. Just need to manage the expectations of a client.

Many thanks for all your great work!

The thread has been tagged with it's tracking number. We do not have a release date for next CBSubs. Update on this issue is it has not even been started, sorry; other priorities are above this issue, but we're getting to them all as quickly as possible.
