Error description

  • After customizing a field on the form via the Form editor to
    specify a
    mode of  visibility for a Field AND then removing the mode type
    the
    field is no longer visible in any mode.
    The expected result is that it should be reset to the default
    visibility
    for all modes.
    
    STEPS TO DUPLICATE:
    
    1.  Create a custom connector
    2.  Open with Form Editor
    3.  Add a Field,  Set Mode Selection to AddOnly
    4.  and add to General form
    5.  Save and close
    6.  Add to an AL in various modes to test visibility.
    7.  Go back to the form editor and remove AddOnly
    8.  Save and Close
    9.  Go back to an AL and test, the field is no longer visible in
    any
    mode.
    
    The manual fix is to open the .connector and remove the line:
    
        <parameter name="modes"/>
    
    from the definition:
    
    <FormItem name="filepath">
                <parameter name="description">Enter path</parameter>
                <parameter name="label">Path</parameter>
                <parameter name="modes"/>
            </FormItem>
    
    Desired Behavior:  Form Mode is managed correctly after changes
    in
    visibility from the Form Editor.
    
    Environment: TDI 7.0. fp 6  (and later)
    
    Note this fix needs to be applied to 7.0 and later.
