Bad Captcha require user to redundantly input all file upload locations again

  1. thehighend

    Gravity Forms is looking really superb, but I just stumbled upon an inconsistency/glitch. I have a user form ( ) where the user can provide input to several input fields, including picture-upload fields.

    I just noticed that if the Captcha validation fails, then when the form page refreshes all the fields retain their data *except for* the picture-upload fields. This is an unfortunate inconsistency. Is there a fix?

  2. It's not a Gravity Forms issue but a normal browser security measure. The file upload field doesn't keep its value if the page is reloaded. This is because the files are are still in the user's local file directory (which you can't access for security).

    I do believe it is possible to store the name of the file, hide it and then redisplay it on reload using some custom javascript but you'd have to write that yourself.
