Zero value of calculation field not shown

    I've searched the forums and can see related issues, but not this exact problem.

    I'm developing a simple quiz. I'm running GF 1.6.5.1 which has the new calculation feature.

    The form has several pages. The pages alternate between question and explanation. Each question is a field with radio buttons, and I'm using values to specify 0-values for wrong answers and 1-values for correct answers. On the final page (after the submit button is clicked) I want to say "You scored: x".

    To achieve this I've created a "Your score" field, and makes use of the calculation feature, using a calculation like:

    {Question 2:3} + {Question 1:1} + ...etc

    I then include the total field in my confirmation text. e.g.:

    You scored: {Your score:13}

    This works fine, as long as the calculated value is not zero. If the value is zero then it just displays:

    You scored:

    With no number.

    Any ideas why this is happening and how I can get the zero value to display? I originally had the 'Your score' field as admin only, to hide it, but I read something elsewhere in the forums about admin only fields not liking zero values. However, I get the same issue if the 'Your score' field is visible to everyone.

    Am I allowed to bump topics on here? It's been a couple of days and I've had no response.

  3. I just tested this and was able to confirm. Let me ask the developers about this and see what they say. Thanks for your patience.

  6. Hi, Ben,

    This is a bug. I have just emailed you a version of Gravity Forms with the bug fix (1.6.5.1.5). As I mentioned in the email, this fix will also be available in the next public release of Gravity Forms.

    Thanks.
