Topic: From Labels displaying over text in form-control

ktlivengood premium asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior Using the fetch API to populate textarea form-controls and the label of that form-control should move to the top of the form-control. Actual behavior the form-control label populates on-top of of form-control text.enter image description here

The label then moves to the top of the control-field only after I click inside that field. enter image description here

for(var i in data){ document.getElementById('GENERAL_NOTES').value =data[i].fieldName; }

Label is updated when one of the events fires: blur, focus, input. Unfortunately, changing value with JS does not automatically trigger an input event. After set value just try dispatch event input;

document.getElementById('GENERAL_NOTES').dispatchEvent(new Event('input'));
