      Alexander,

      I can’t seem to trigger a DFFS rule based on an SPJS Autocomplete field. I have tried rules based on the field being empty or not, and on specific values, but to no avail. Is that configuration supported?

      Thanks!

      Ok it appears to be working, but with issues. It intermittently works and is effected by how the user leaves the field; whether they tab out or click the value in the autocomplete choices list. And it doesn’t seem to work on subsequent field changes after the initial value it set.

      Thanks for the feedback – I have fixed this issue and will be posting a new version tomorrow.

      Best regards,

      Hi,
      Could you check out v1.4.8 and see if the issue has been fixed?

      You find it here

      It doesn’t appear to have made a difference. What are the minimum versions of all the other pieces you would recommend for this to work? I’m not on the absolute latest version of DFFS with the loader.

      Also I found this error in the console:

      TypeError: spjs.dffs.ruleObj.triggerMapContext is undefined
      if(spjs.dffs.ruleObj.triggerMapContext[fin] !== undefined){
      SPJS-ac.js (line 693, col 1)

      Hi,
      Ensure the latest version has loaded correctly (that the old version is not casched) by hovering over the “Enhanced with DFFS” link, and clicking the “License and version information”. The “Autocomplete” version should read “1.4.8”.

      If it does not, try hitting “Ctrl + R” to force a reload.

      Ok here’s what I have loading:

      DFFS Backend v4.365
      CSS version: 4.11
      spjs-utility version: 1.267
      [SPJS-Autoccomplete plugin 1.4.8]
      [vLookup plugin backend v2.261]
      [Cascading dropdowns plugin v3.53]
      jQuery 1.11.3

      Ok so a few more observations:

      – I get that error in the console even when the rules works
      – The only way to make it work consistently is when the user enters the value that should trigger the rule, removes focus from the field (click or tab away), adds focus back to the field (click or tab in), and removes it again (click or tab away).

      The correct version of the plugin must be loaded in the DFFS frontend. How does this “License and version information” look in the form?

      Ok the hover over says:

      Autocomplete 1.4.8
      Cascading dropdowns 3.527
      DFFS frontend: 4.365
      DFFS frontend CSS: 4.14/4.14
      jQuery: 1.11.3
      Lookup: not loaded
      Resource management: not loaded
      SPJS-Utility: 1.267
      vLookup: frontend v2.264

      Just remembered that your DFFS version will not work with the latest AC plugin due to the method I user to call the “change” function.

      Please update to the latest version.

      I don’t think you need to use the new “installer” and “loader” functionality, just stick with the CEWP method if you have this already set up, but you need to change the “js” files to the latest version.

      Ok, I’m using the JSLink setup, but I’ll update the JS files now.

      Ok, I updated everything to the latest. Here are my versions:

      DFFS frontend: 4.4.1
      DFFS frontend CSS: 4.19/4.14
      Autocomplete 1.4.8
      Cascading dropdowns 3.528
      jQuery: 1.11.3
      Lookup: not loaded
      Resource management: not loaded
      SPJS-Utility: 1.267
      vLookup: frontend v2.276

      There doesn’t seem to be a change in the field behavior. What I am trying to do is make one field conditionally required depending on two specific values in the Autocomplete field.

      I also noticed with the new 1.4.8 version of autocomplete, the confirmation light never turns green, just keeps spinning.

      Could you email me a few screenshots so I can see exactly how you have set up the rules?

      Also, please open the developer tools (hit F12 > Console) and see if you have any errors there when the spinner does not turn “green”.

      Alexander
