i am working on CiviCRM 4.6.10 and came across this problem which doesn't seemed to be asked on the web:
- I created a custom field with radio button of 3 options
- I defaulted the field to one of the value and made it a required field
- When a new contact is created through a event registration, the field does not show any value when the contact is viewed through in "View Contact".
- Searching or reporting that use the field as a column shows nothing in the field
- However, upon clicking the field in View Contact, it shows the defaulted value
- After saving the field without changing anything, the field now shows the defaulted value
- Searching and reporting using the field as a column now shows the default value as expected
I suppose this would be a bug ? Thanks for your time and advice.
