Adding a default value for Text (shor, medium and long), date and combos

Hi guys,

I needed to add a default value to text, date and combos in a survey a I made. The combos already have a possible default value but I needed to bind the default value to a token entry.

My need was for people to confirm their personal info, and the "old" info was in token attributes. I used the implemented mechanism and just extended it to these other questions types.
  • In the questions it can have a {TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}.
  • In the date, the same.
  • In the combos, I added all the token fields to the available options.

Using this approach, I don't have to write javascript code binded to a specific survey/question ID, and I provide the survey administrator (non IT person) the possibility to bind default values to these questions types.

My question is: Is this interesting to you? Do you see value in adding this to the code?

Note: This was developed in 1.90.

Best regards,
Tiago Lopes
