Order forms are blank after upgrading to Resource Central 4.0

 

Symptom

After upgrading to Resource Central (RC) 4.0 from an older version, order forms with “required” properties are blank when you open it in ResourceFinder.

Cause

In property details, there is a radio button for you to determine if a property is required:

In RC versions older than 4.0, if a required property is inserted into an order form, the HTML form automatically adds a java script snippet to validate this “required” factor, and you can see it if you select “Source” in Form Editor:

In RC 4.0+, this java script snippet is not necessary and its existence in the form cause the order form being blank when you open it in ResourceFinder.

 

Resolution

To make the order visible again, you need to remove the java script snippets in the order form.

1. Go to the forms with required properties, open its HTML form, copy and paste the source code into a text file for backup.

2. Copy and paste the source code into any HTML editor (e.g. Notepad++).

3. Look for all java script snippets (by typing ‘script’ into the search box) and delete them all.

 

Properties

Applies to: RC 4.0+
