Behaviours field with pre-filled text not working properly when click outside of the field


Hi All,

Case of using Behaviours to pre-fill the Description text field.

When typing the description, everything appears to be fine until we click outside the description area: the description is reversed to the default template. 

How can we resolve this?

Hi @Jelena Saveljic

If  I understood correctly, you've placed a behaviour as "Server side script" for Description field

1. if you want the template to be applied based on another field then can use server side script if not initializer is the best option here

2. also you need to validate filled description value before you apply template. there are couple of methods and one is below

if(descField.getFormValue() == ""){

   //apply template to description field


let me know if that helps you
