    Doh…you’re right…that site’s on 3.528. I’ll have a look at updating it.
    As usual, thanks for the quick response Alexander!

    What is the best way of updating DFFS + plugins to a later version, but still with the options to revert back in case there are issues with the later version?

    Afraid I can’t see the details in the attachment image.
    Can you outline how you need the workflow and form to work together, and what you need DFFS/workflow to do that isn’t currently working as you want it to?

    Hi Timothy

    Can you explain what you mean by training registration, and perhaps the steps in the process?

    I created a simple self booking system for seats in seminars with DFFS. There isn’t any approval process but you could add that if needed.
    The subject, dates and available places are predefined by an admin, end users simply choose a ‘slot’ and book by adding their name to the list item (or someone else’s name). DFFS is used to limit which fields can be edited (and by which people), and also limits editing to either the person booked into the slot, the person who last modified the item or defined admins.
    I’m not sure if that’s along the lines of what you need, but if you want more detail let me know.

    To keep things as simple as possible could you redo your coding, so that the format is always consistent…103 becomes 0103?
    That would sort the ordering.

    Is this related to the minimal download strategy in SP2013 and up?

    If it’s there I’m afraid I can’t locate it. I’ve even tried running iexplore.exe direct from c:\program files (x86) too, but no success, it still runs as the 64 bit version. Definitely no 32 bit app. It’s a corporate build of Windows 10 Enterprise, so possible something has been changed or locked down.
    I’m not sure what else I can try.

    I’ve done something similar to this but without using workflow – I use a DFFS rule ‘on save’ on the editform in combination with a couple of other rules to check and set the filename based on other fields/values.

    As this is a document library, I think the ID will be generated after newform is submitted, so when you get to the editform to add metadata the ID for the document will exist, and so you should be able to use it in a rule and set the filename to whatever you want it to be (just be careful to avoid a circular loop adding the ID each time to a filename that already has the ID included).
    In my editform I set the filename based on two other fields – Reference number and Title. Each time either of those fields is edited, the filename is updated and committed on save.
    If that sounds like what you want to do let me know and I can share the rules I use.

    Just following up on this after a long delay…I couldn’t get IE to run in 32 bit mode…

    Is this the same as the issue discussed here

    Christine – are you running IE11 32 bit or 64 bit???
    I think the conclusion we came to last time was that 64 bit IE11 was the likely reason;
    In the console run

    browseris.win32

    and

    browseris.win64bit

    You should get a true or false response for each…let’s see if it’s 64 bit

    I’ve only ever done this inside a rule…
    In DFFS rules config there is a section for “Hidden headings or Elements”.
    In there I’ve got .ms-toolbar
    That’s the class I found by using developer tools to inspect DOM elements
    (Note this is for a SP2010 site – possible other versions are different)

    You could also use this same class in custom CSS to apply globally, but for us we only wanted to hide this for end users, admins still have visibility.

    Hi Amal

    Personally I’d suggest trying a completely new install of DFFS on a new subsite, keeping it as minimal as possible, just a basic list and form to start with.
    Once you’ve proven that there are no issues, progressively add more configuration until the problem arises.

    Hi Nicole

    If I understand your situation correctly, Alexander has already thought of this and included it as standard;
    -In DFFS config there is a check box for “Autofill subsequent dropdowns when they contain only one valid option”
    -Standalone there is a parameter to set – “autoselectSingleOption:true If the next dropdown contains only one option it will be automatically selected.”

    Have you tried either of these?

    See guide

    Possibly not the answer you’re looking for, but a quick workaround in the short term may be to get (or request) the list view threshold increased – the default OOTB threshold is 5000 items, but that’s a threshold, not a hard boundary
    SharePoint software boundaries and limits
    We have increased ours to 50,000 items without any performance issues.

    As for querying the child list itself – this post might be of use; StackExchange

    Hi Amal
    Is there any reason you can’t either;
    -give users read access to the root of the site collection
    -Set up DFFS directly on the Products sub-site

    If you can’t do either of those then on the root site you’ll need to try granting at least some access to all users so they can use services – I’d suggest a minimium of “Use Remote Interfaces – Use SOAP, Web DAV, the Client Object Model or SharePoint Designer interfaces to access the Web site.” That might work, but you may run into other errors (I’ve not tried this scenario myself).

    Hi Alexander
    -SP2010
    -We were primarily using “Rich Text” but “Enhanced Rich Text” also seems to be affected in the same way (appears as a plain text box without the edit icons above)
    -DFFS frontend: 4.4.1
    DFFS frontend CSS: 4.19/4.19
    Autocomplete: 1.4.7
    Cascading dropdowns: 3.528
    jQuery: 1.12.4
    Lookup: 1.1.5
    RM: not loaded
    SPJS-Utility: 1.267
    vLookup: frontend v2.2.76

    It’s just strange that from a parent dispform the issue doesn’t occur – it’s only when the parent is editable that the child form “opens” incorrectly.
