Hello,

I would like to add a placeholder to my field type 'Select from list'. I've tried to achieve that with initscript but I didn't succeed at all.

Can someone help me with that?

Thanks!

Sandra

Hey,

simply add to the top of the list (in the Value field) the following:
1;Please select...;

You can see that the second parameter (after the second semicolon) is empty. That's so you can put validation ff_valuenotempty on that field and it won't pass validation unless the user selects something.

Kind regards,
Darko

Thanks for your answer.

I tried that before posting my issue, preview was ok, but not the frontend. In fact if I use Boostrap as theme engine (what I wanted) it doesn't work. It works if I use BreezingForms engine.

Hey,

it should work. Can you please set the select list value to this and see if it works?
1;Please select;
0;Title 1;value1
0;Title 2;value2
0;Title 3;value3

Regards,
Darko

It works except if I select Boostrap theme engine + set Use BS3 on Yes. It works fine with the built-in on Yes. So all is now fine.

Thanks!
