Stay on form after submission

    Hi,

    I want to stay on my form after submission.
    Putting the form shortcode in the text confirmation did the trick but the form are populated with previous value, even if I use a pre_render filter.

    Is there a way for old value not overwriting my value populated by my pre-render filter?

    Instead of putting the shortcode in the text confirmation, you could redirect back to the page which would start Gravity Forms building the form from scratch.

    I want to use Ajax for this. I don't want to reload the full page which is quite bit

    And my form is inside a Tab, so it will not be usefull at all to reload the full page.

    At which phase are the field populated? Perhaps it coul be possible to hook it.
    It's quite strange because I populate the field in the pre_render and they are still overwritten...

    Pre-render isn't really happening because of how forms on the web works, the form never gets destroyed, and thus never re-built, hence your issue.

    So what is the solution?

    It's a critical issue for me, I need the ajax conversation and I need to repopulate the fields.

    In fact calling the shortcode should give me back a brand new form, not the same one. It seems like a bug to me It should act like a redirection on the same page.

    Do you know in which file I could take a look in order to make it work for me?

    I made a test, the pre-render function is called.

    So there must be somewhere where the fields are overwritten.
