That may work just as well. Thank you Alexander!March 9, 2022 at 18:48 in reply to: Custom JS to set default value for choice yes/no drop down field #35600
I have been able to solve for it using cascading dropdowns. Tool does allow for multiple columns (Column A and B) to both reference the same original field from the other list.March 9, 2022 at 17:52 in reply to: Custom JS to set default value for choice yes/no drop down field #35599
Hi Steve, Column A is a text field because it happens to be a cascading dropdown being referenced from another list. But yes there will always be a yes/no value. I was hoping to avoid adding yet another rule since I’m in the upper 90s now and wanting to skim those down as it may be too much to maintain or can impact load time. Was thinking adding Custom JS that gets value from Column A as default for Column B would be better. Do you suggest a rule is better?
Steve, when I increase the font in the read-only box, it also increases as a bolder frame. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions what else I can do to get it closer to the one on the right?
That was my fear, lol. I’ve been playing with it since yesterday but can’t fully figure it out. Thank you.
yes thank you Steve, that is what I had to do temporarily as well. Ü
Had to set ‘Set Fields’. It works perfectly! Wow, you never cease to amaze us. Thank you so much Alexander. I’ve shared your most recent update with our organization’s SP community. Everyone is just as excited as me.
Hi Alexander. I appreciate you prompt response Ü. Unfortunately it didn’t work. I can create the relationship between both fields in cascading dropdown and I can locate the ‘note’ field to add row in Tabs but like before, it breaks all cascading dropdown fields previously working. They simply return all blanks. Tells me to change field to ‘Single Lines of text’ which if I do (and I did) it will return all other cascading fields except for that one. that one still pull blank.
Yes, that would definitely solve for it. Ü
Thank you Alex. The list is a change request intake list so the new item form gives pulls in existing details to the item they are wanting to change so they can see the existing data followed by a field near it for them to tell us what they need to change it to. most of the ‘current’ data fields are pulled using Cascading Dropdowns except for these 2 because they are multiline text fields. i.e. the screen shots show a vlookup for ‘Current Definition’ followed by a ‘New Definition’ for their entry. when the form is saved, the list will notified all appropriate people that need to review the change so having the vlookup column display the content next to the ‘new’ helps them see what they are changing from and to. The form is not intended to automatically update the original list source on any way. It’s only a centralized tool for change requests to be reviewed and the submitter can come back to it and check the approval status. Attaching a partial screenshot of the ‘TO’ list. Hope this helps.

so here is a screenshot of a field where the text gets cut off instead of it wrapping into a second row/line like it does on ‘Multi line’ text fields.
I’ve been able to set a fix width to the answer rows using the Field CSS but it only works on ‘Text” fields not on ‘Notes’. Code used:
I commented out the following snippet and it help aligning the answers section of my screenshot..
`/* MAKES ANSWER BOXES NARROW
Still haven’t figured out how to center the headers and expand the answer text boxes of the screenshot.
I lied, this snippet is actually commented out.
`/* MAKES QUESTIONS NARROW PER COLUMN BUT IT CENTERS SECTION HEADERS
I will do that. Thanks again Alexander!
