      I’ve just done a fresh install of DFFS (18 October 2015 version)
      DFFS Frontend 4.358
      DFFS backend 4.357
      spjs-utility version: 1.253
      jQuery 1.11.3
      vLookup Frontent 2.253
      SP2010 Standard

      There are two things I’ve come across which seem a bit strange.
      1) On editform on a document library I don’t see the option to do anything with the ID field – I wanted to hide it, but there is no entry in the dropdowns on the rules tab, and “ID” doesn’t appear in the Field Table tab as a valid field.
      On dispform, it functions exactly as expected – ID field in field table and in the dropdown menus.

      2) DFFS frontend overlay seems to be causing an issue with the form while being edited – white box in front of everything else on the form – see attachment.
      Inspection of this area with developer tools shows

      <DIV id=dffs_formTableOverlay style="CURSOR: default; HEIGHT: 100%; WIDTH: 100%; POSITION: absolute; Z-INDEX: 9999; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff">&nbsp;</DIV>

      I’ve not seen this before when setting up DFFS.

      I’m also seeing errors in the console (for both dispform and editform – both refer to editform.aspx);

      SCRIPT70: Permission denied
      File: EditForm.aspx, Line: 19, Column: 1

      Which is the document.write line after CDATA

      // <![CDATA[
      document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/1033/init.js?rev=BjQJs0OCQh3Zfydsdw2MYw%3D%3D"></' + 'script>');

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ll add the ID as selectable in EditForm – it went missing in one of the previous *fixes*.

      The overlay is also a change in one of the lates releases to try to prevent a flash of the unformatted form before DFFS kicks in – I’ll add a fix to the next release, but you can use this code in the overlay CEWP:

      <div id="dffs_formTableOverlay" style="width:100%;height:100%;background-color:#ffffff;position:absolute;z-index:9999;cursor:default;"> </div>
      <script type="text/javascript">
      if(document.forms[MSOWebPartPageFormName].MSOLayout_InDesignMode.value !== "1"){
      		var div = document.createElement('div'), o = document.getElementById("dffs_formTableOverlay"); = "dffs_loadingOverlay"; = "padding-top:100px;text-align:center;width:100%;height:100%;background-color:#F5F5F5;position:absolute;top:0px;z-index:9999;cursor:default;background-image:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAAYAAAAGCAYAAADgzO9IAAAALElEQVQIW2NkwALOnDnznxFdHCRoYmLCiCIBEwQphksgC8Il0AXBEtgEQRIAsDsXagWOqrQAAAAASUVORK5CYII=);";
      		// Change this to have your own overlay message
      		div.innerHTML = "DFFS is loading...";
      		document.body.insertBefore(div, document.body.firstChild);
      		if(o !== null){
      			var oDiv = document.getElementById("dffs_loadingOverlay");
      			if(oDiv !== null){
      				oDiv.innerHTML = "<span style='font-size:20px'>This took forever!<span style='font-size:12px'><br><br>Click to close this overlay.</span></span>";
      				oDiv.onclick = function(){
      	var o = document.getElementById("dffs_formTableOverlay");
      	if(o !== null){

      The last error you posted is not known to me, and this script is not used in my code.

      You’re quite right Alexander, the last error seems to be an issue specific to the site collection I was testing in – as yet unresolved, but nothing at all to do with DFFS.

      In production I’m still running a previous version of DFFS so I’ve still got the older code for the overlay (no flicker issues experienced).
