I’m having a couple of issues with Custom JS.
Both issues were working in DFFS Backend v126.96.36.199, but not in v188.8.131.52 (Beta version fully installed today).
1) I can’t type anything in the Custom JS script area. I can paste, but not type.
2) I am using Custom JS to change the header text of a couple of fields.
Here’s an example of the code I’m using:
$(“#sbs_Field__x0032_DownExec”).find(“td.ms-formlabel H3”).text(“2 Down Exec”);

Does the syntax highlighting work in the code editor? – add a screenshot so I can see how it looks.
Which browser are you using? – I changed to a newer version of the ACE code editor and it might be a problem related to that. Can you bring up the dev console (hit F12 > Console) and see if there are any errors?
Not sure what you mean – doesn’t this snippet work anymore?

1. I attached a screen shot of the Custom JS tab.
There were no errors in the dev console.
I use Internet Explorer 11.
2. The snippet worked on 184.108.40.206, but it’s not working on 220.127.116.11.

I noticed today that I also can’t add anything in the Custom CSS box by typing, but I can paste and delete code.

It looks like this version of ACE doesn’t like IE in IE 8 mode. Are you able to try using another browser – like Google Chrome?
If not, try hitting F12 and select “Emulation” and set “Document mode” to IE 9 or above.

It did not like changing the Document mode at all. It cause A LOT of errors. Tried setting it to 9 and 10, errors happened both times.
I could edit the fields in Chrome. However, IE 11 is the company standard and everyone uses it. So I still have the header (formlabel) not picking up the change in text.

You can copy the files from the “/DFFS/ace” folder in the old release and overwrite the files in “/DFFS/ace/src-min-noconflict” in the new release. This will load v1.2.6 of Ace and it should most likely work better.
Please let me know how this works out.

That did it!
There was one file on the new version that wasn’t on the old version, ext-themelist.js. Do I need to do anything with it or just leave it there?
Thanks for all your help!!

I’m glad it worked. I’ll see what I can do about it in the next release. The ext-themelist.js isn’t currently used so you can just leave it.

I, too am having this issue after updating to v18.104.22.168 but replacing the ace folder/files to the last version working for my (2017-08-17) did not resolve this issue. I am able to edit in Google Chrome but I prefer using IE 11 for ease of use with all other open browser windows.

Please hit F12 > Console and let me know what errors you see there when you try to open a DFFS form and enter the Custom JS tab.
