CB Conditional Show/Hide Resets Field Values

[#8620] CB Conditional Show/Hide Resets Field Values was created by marriage_minded_man
I have 1 Checkbox field, 1 Editor Text Area field, and 1 File Upload field.

The Editor Text Area and File Upload are set to "Field Conditional Show" if the Checkbox is Equal To 1 (when it is checked off). This part works fine, the 2 fields are shown and hidden based on the checkbox.

However, when data is saved in those two fields and the Checkbox is unchecked (set to 0), and the profile is saved, and the fields are hidden, when the user comes back at a later time and sets the Checkbox to 1 again (to show the fields again), the data of those fields is no longer there.

To be clear:
Checkbox is checked - 2 fields are shown - data entered - profile saved - data shows fine.
User comes back and unchecks checkbox - fields are hidden - profile saved.
User comes back checks Checkbox - the previously saved data is no longer there (it has been deleted).


The "Reset" option under the CB Conditional Tab, whether set to "Yes", "No", or "Same as Global", makes no difference at all.

How do I get the data to stay in the fields after the fields have been hidden, so that the user show them again and continue to edit/add to them?

Looks like a bug. Setting "Reset" to "No" should be preventing that. Have added a bug ticket to investigate further as was able to confirm it's not working as expected. Only way to disable the resetting at the moment is to do so globally within CB Conditional plugin parameters, but this will impact all conditions.

Ok, this is now fixed in latest CB Conditional release. Have replaced how it keeps track of if a field should reset or not with a more reliable implementation and confirmed working.
