Issues with Clone URL parameter

I’ve just spent some time figuring out an issue, and thought I’d leave it here in case anyone else encounters this in the future.

I had a page with a few models, and I wanted to clone one of the models. On the advanced tab, I set the ‘load on page load’ and Clone to ‘Yes if clone is present’ but it wasn’t working - debugging in the console showed the doClone property was stubbornly false.

The issue was I was using a URL parameter in a condition to get the necessary record. The parameter’s name was jid, and changing this to simply ‘id’ made the problem disappear, and behaviour was as expected.

There’s not a lot of documentation on this feature - worth a few extra lines on one of the doco pages somewhere?

Hi Gary,
