How do default form field values work?
In GridMonger you can specify a default value for a form field, so its auto-filled automatically when a user clicks the 'Add Record' icon. As a general rule, if whatever you want will fit inside of an Evaluate() statement (regardless of whether it needs to be evaluated or not) then you can use it.
- A default value can be entered as a single variable name. Specify the variable's contents somewhere in your own ColdFusion programming. For example: request.myDefault.
- A default value can be entered as a literal value. Enter the value in the field and surround it with single quote marks. For example: 'This is my Default'.
- Do not surround a variable name in pound signs.
- If using variables, use one only. You cannot concatenate multiple variables (i.e. no "FirstName & " " & LastName")
