Default value



When you insert a new entry and have a default value set in a cascade parent (select single), you can no longer select a cascade filter because it needs a refresh like changing the cascade parent to something else update the cascade filter. I did not see this in the manual under "known bugs, limitations and unexpected behaviors" it's not critical but may be it is easy to fix?

Thank for the great work and support

Hi Stefan,
yes this is a known behaviour, if you check the inline help in form configurator for cascade parent field it says
Furhtermore, if you set a default value for the cascade parent field, the cascade action will not be triggered automatically, the cascade action is only triggered by a manual value change.

It's not planned to be fixed soon but at some point I will look into that to improve this.
