So, autocomplete is filling my forms with previously submitted information. I need the submissions to be editable, so I cannot disable that; some other posts have suggested that as a solution. Disabling autocomplete in browser settings seems to have no effect on Chrome or Firefox oddly enough.
I hit upon the idea to simply run a ff_resetForm() in the Before Form pieces, but that presents a scoping problem, where that function is undefined at that stage of the form. Even loading the basic libraries ($this -> execPieceByName('ff_InitLib')at the start of the form does not include this function.
Has anyone else hit upon a solution to this issue or know what library to load that will include ff_resetForm?
Changing the property of "Editable by user" in the menu control seems to have done it.
I was making it more difficult on myself, it seems, by thinking that the property would prevent users from editing their records, but that is handled separately in the ContentBuilder view...
Thank you for your assistance again, Tihana!
