Choice field default value on first row of a repeating section

Jump to solution

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a form with a repeating section, inside that repeating section, I have 2 choice fields with a default value of 0. However when the form loads, the default value doesn't show but instead the choice controls uses the first value/option on the drop down not until you add a new row (Screenshot below).

How can I make the repeating section use the default value set on those drop downs on the first row?

 

Just an additional info, it looks like this happens when an existing item is edited. Works perfectly when on a new form.

 

Thanks!

I think I know what the issue is, the items are actually being created via site workflow and the repeating sections are not connected to a Multi-line text field, so when the item gets created the controls inside the repeating section gets a null value thus uses the first values of the drop down menu. As a workaround, we connected the repeating section to a multi-text field and pre-populate its contents using the site workflow that creates the item.
