  • Bug Drop-down field custom entry bug in XFA form (started happening in v9.0.1)

    XFA dynamic forms I created in LiveCycle Designer ES4 suddenly have an issue with the drop-down fields not working properly in Foxit Reader v9.0.1

    In particular, any drop-down fields that allow custom text entry are behaving as such:

    If the list contains "Apples, Bananas, Carrots, Pears" then anytime you type a letter that is the first letter of any of the list items (like A,B,C, or P) the text you've written gets cleared away and replaced only with that letter you just typed.

    Example: you want to type "grapefruit" can type "g...r..." but then once you type "a" it clears away the text and only the "a" is left. Same with any of the other first letters in the list. It happens consistently across multiple Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines all with v9.0.1.

    In v8.3 the issue was not present. I've tested and replicated this with a brand new form that only has a drop-down as mentioned above. It happens only with XFA dynamic forms; XFA static forms and Adobe AcroForms do not have this issue in v9.0.1. Turning off Autocomplete in the Forms section of the Preferences does not help the issue.

    Attached is the example file or just in case here is a link:

    Is anyone else experiencing the same issue?

      Hi again,

      I've seen a few Foxit Reader updates come through and have used them all but this issue still occurs even in the latest 9.4 version. We still have trouble being able to type custom text into a dropdown field. It always clears away the text that you are writing if any of the dropdown items start with the letter you just typed. Is there any update on this please?
