Hi Dmitry,

 

I have a small issue with SP Forms. When you close down a form and then return back it opens to the point you were before you closed it down. Can this be changed to go back to the starting point of the form (i.e. to the top of the form)?

 

Thanks

    Hi Katerina,

    This is the common behavior of most browsers: when you click Back the scroll position will be the same as it was when you left the page. So, if you need to open the form from the initial position, please, use SharePoint navigation controls e.g. ribbon buttons, contextual menu etc.

    Hi Dmitry,

     

    This happens even if you use SharePoint navigation controls.

    Is there any feature that needs anabling on the forms?

     

    Thanks

    [#2]: What do you mean when you say "the point you were before"? Is it the scroll position, the selected tab, or the selected accrodion section? Could provide the screenshots?

    Hi Dmitry,

     

    I mean accordion section, tab etc on the form. For example you open a form a clicked a specific tab/accordion section and then click close. When you go back later the form it will open to the same tab/accordion you left it when you last went in. Is like the form is not refreshing.

     

    Thanks

    [#4]: Hi Katerina,

    Thanks for the additional information. Now, I see. You just need to clear formsdesigner_last_url cookie before closing the form. Please, put the following code into JS-editor of Forms Designer:

    fd.cancel().click(function() {
    	$.cookie('formsdesigner_last_url', null);
    })
    
    fd.onsubmit(function() {
    	$.cookie('formsdesigner_last_url', null);
    	return true;
    });

    [#7]: Hi Dmitry,

    You can clear cookies when a user leaves a form by using the code below:

    $(window).unload(function() {
      $.cookie('formsdesigner_last_url', null);
    });
