Our use case is probably very common : a form where a parent can fill in his own data and the data of his children, with "parent of / child of" relationships.
In order to avoid creation of duplicate children (and because we have found out that Deduper does not work if there is an hyphen in the name), we use a workaround with Searchkit + Autocomplete + Formbuilder, so that parents can pick up their children already existing in our civicrm.
Problem: if we use autofill to display the children already with a "child of" relationship, then the content of some fields blink and changes endlessly
Bug ? Missing feature ? Something wrong in our setup ?
Searchkit : a basic contact search, where sub-type = child
Autocomplete in Searchkit : a basic configuration showing the full name of the child. Works well in preview in Searchkit / Autocomplete page
Formbuilder A basic form with individual (multiple), a search box "existing user", leveraging the autocomplete described above. In open access. Autofill : child of current user
What happens : on screenshot below, the content of the red field alternate very rapidely (creating a "blinking" effect) between :
- 9845 (which is the contact ID of Bart Simpson)
- Bart Simpson
Then if we click on "add" to creation an additional child, it gets worse : the 3 yellow fields have the same blinking / alternating problem, their content cycle between Bart Simpson and Lisa Simpson (the 2 children)
Then if in the green box we select "Hugo Simpson", then the yellow fields have the blinking / alternating problem, they cycle between Hugo and Lisa (note that Bart seems to have disappeared ;). And the name fields below the green field remain empty
