Hello everbody,

I have a form with 3 different combo boxes. They are set to hide/visible via their respective optionfields.

So far, so good: The combo boxes show up and go into hiding as supposed to. But:

Only two of them react normally once the are visible, i.e. i can click on an item to select it. The issue is with the third one - there simply is no reaction. Not to mouse clicks, not to the Return button.

I have no idea what I possibly could have done differently with this combo box (compared to the other two) and would really appreciate any hints or help.

---

In einem Formular mit 3 Combo Boxen die über entsprechende OPtionsfelder gezeigt/versteckt werden, ist eine nicht wie die anderen: Wenn gezeigt, reagiert sie einfach auf nichts, nicht auf Mausklick, nicht auf Return.

Ich habe keine Ahnung was ich hier anders als bei den anderen beiden gemacht haben könnte und würde mich über jeden Tipp und Hilfe freuen.

 

Michael

Hi,

just found out that the only thing that works is a right-click with the mouse...

Gerade herausgefunden: Das einzige was funktioniertt, ist ein Rechts-Klick...

Any ideas why?

Does you list or dropdown fields?

Hello Bernd,

thanks for reacting in such a short time.

My German version tells me it's a dropdown list. The part that is "not behaving" ist the one about children. ( no pun intended 🙂

To make the problem finding easier, I just attached the concerning part, see below.

Whatever we do, the JavaScript Console always returns the same error message.

Hi,

let me answer to Bernd Alheit first:

Sorry, I should have been more precise. Clicking on the option fields to open one of the 3dropdown-list works. The problem I have is with the drop-down list for children. As your screenshot shows, it obviously works for you. Unfortunately not for me. To select one of the children I have to click the right mouse-button. Left mouse-button works just fine withe the other two dropdown lists.

 

Answer for JR Bouley:

That seems understandable as the form is just an excerpt as I thought- still think - that the mouse functionality itself does not depend on anything else. Is that assumption wrong?

 

Thanks for your cooperation!

Michael

It displays this error because the dropdown doesn't have following values:

 

this.getField("Relationship1a").value = "...which of your children";
 
this.getField("Relationship").value = "... yourself, your parents or granparents"

Hello Bernd,

... well, yes.

But it still doesn't explain (to me 🙂 why the dropdown list about the children does not react to  a click with the left mouse-button. Not on my computer, and not on a second one:

Do I understand you wrong or does assigning text to the fields "Relationship" and "Relationship1a" influence to which buttons the dropdown-list reacts?

1) opening the form:

Michael23490319pbtr_0-1651488537733.png

2) selecting ... children:

Michael23490319pbtr_1-1651488590752.png

Left clicking on "Please select which..." -> has no effect, nothing happens.

3) selecting "yourself ..." and left clicking on it, has an effect:

Michael23490319pbtr_2-1651488767519.png

... the line changes colour, but then it doesn't matter which mouse-button I use, nothing happens when clicking on ....the arrow to start selectin an item from the list itself.

Aaaaah - BUT, just found out the following:

If I click somewhere, actually anywhere else in the form first, and then on the arrow - it works. Gives me reason to think that clicking somewhere else assigns content to a field and that that content is needed to activate the dropdown function. Is that so ?

Hello again,

unfortunately the problem itself hasn't been solved.

So, as usual, I avoided that problem by not using that complication any longer - there is only one check box left, and so it is ok.

Thanks anyway,

Michael
