Clear field not working on paged form

    I'm using the handy jquery snippet for clearing fields, with a slight modification to clear all inputs instead of just ones with .clearit.

    This is working great on one of my standard 1 pages forms, but the other is paged and it's not working.

    http://2013.studio412design.com

    Click "Contact" to see the working form.

    Click "Request a Quote" (above the logo) to see the non-working form.

    I've tried a bunch of stuff, including being more specific in the call and specifying the ID of the input and nothing works. It's like there is a conflict with the pagination or something.

    $.fn.cleardefault = function() {
    			return this.focus(function() {
    				if( this.value == this.defaultValue ) {
    					this.value = "";
    				}
    				}).blur(function() {
    				if( !this.value.length ) {
    					this.value = this.defaultValue;
    				}
    			});
    		};
    		$("input, textarea, .input, #input_9_7").cleardefault();

    Any insight would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    -Nick

  2. Are you using a different script or function for the "Request a Quote" pull down vs. the Contact pull down?

    Does the clearit script in the "Request a Quote" form work properly when it's not in your toggle/pull down?

    To test your pagination theory, can you put a text field on the first page with default text and see if it will clear?

    It's possible on a multi-page form that you need to initialize the clearit script again. You can use the gform_post_render hook to do that: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_post_render

    Hey Chris,

    The script for the pull down is just a class toggle for the element wrapper. Nothing fancy.

    I tried putting the form on a page by itself and it still failed. I removed a bunch of extra js that I had and it still failed.

    Also, binding to gform_post_render didn't seem to work either.

  4. Can you post a link to the page where you embedded the form and it still failed? It will be easier for me to troubleshoot there.
