Field text blanks out after editing

Hi All,

I have a small peculiar issue that I could use some eyes on. Within a field editor I have a custom user lookup field. When this field is edited and a new user is selected the field then displays nothing (appears blank) as opposed to the italicized yellow/gold text of something that is an edit. Although, upon saving the change is honored on the record in salesforce and will even appear after refreshing. We would like to fix this as it causes confusion for our users.

Clicking to edit:


Search and select new user


After user is selected this is displayed.

Hello Michael, can you reproduce this behaviour on a new page which contains only the field editor and standard salesforce objects and fields? If yes, you could copy and paste the XML here and I would be happy to investigate. Which version of Skuid are you using?

Maybe you already found this: A quick way to check the version is to use the browser console. You can be on any Skuid page (composer or preview), open the browser console, type skuid.version and hit enter. The version number will be displayed.

In order to find out what causes this behaviour, you could build a new page. Start with the field editor in question and check if it looks fine. Then add the other components, models, snippets etc. to the page, one by one. Every time after you added one item, save and preview and check if the field editor behaviour has changed. To save time, you can copy and paste XML from the existing page to the new page.

Another method is the other way around. Create a clone of the existing page and delete components, models, etc. Every time you delete one item, save and preview and check if the field editor behaviour has changed.

Another idea: Does this still occur if you use a different design theme for the page? You could clone the page and select a different design theme for testing.
