Hi there

I created a form with checkboxes. When I click the checkbox, the page automatically moves to the next page. There is no JavaScript at all in the checkboxes nor any actions. What's causing this?

thank you

Remove the calculation from the field "PageNum".

Can you share the actual file with us?

You can attach it to the original message using the tiny paperclip icon at the bottom when you edit it, or upload it to a file-sharing website (like Dropbox, Google Drive, Adobe Cloud, etc.), generate a share link and then post it here.

Hi Try67 thank you for your response. Please see a copy of the form in the attached link. I had to remove all text due to confidential info. But I retained all the fillable fields and checkboxes. Hope you're able to see why the page jumps to the next page when a checkbox is ticked. Note: this spawns an additional page when the red checkbox on page 3 is ticked.

Ah, you've added a crucial piece of information now... So the check-box is set to spawn a page when clicked? If so, that could explain it. I would add to the script a command to "jump" back to the original page after spawning a new one.

Hi try67

Please see if this works

The checkbox with a javascript to spawn is on page 3. But the normal checkboxes in other pages are the problem. if you tick a box on page 1, it jumps to page 2. If I remove all the javascripting or actions on the entire form, it still jumps to the next page.

 

Thanks
